Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
Umphrey’s McGee are no strangers to the high-elevation rock and roll workout that is Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, having hosted raucous evenings as the headlining band numerous times over the past decade. With no signs of slowing down, UM are charging right into the next ten years with a three-night run at the fan- and band-favorite venue on June 19, 20, and 21, 2020. And like any good party, this one would be incomplete without a host of funky friends.
“We went from a lengthy tour straight into the studio to record Presto,” says PPPP guitarist and vocalist, Greg Ormont, “and I think that had a big impact on the sound. We had just finished playing a lot of these songs on the road, and that experience made our performances on the album so much more confident, lively and electric.”
Today, Bonnaroo reveals the initial lineup for the 19th annual edition of the internationally acclaimed four-day multi-stage camping festival set to take place June 11 – 14 at Great Stage Park, the spectacular 700-acre farm and event space located just 60 miles southeast of Nashville in Manchester, TN.
In addition to yesterday's big news, where Pigeons Playing Ping Pong announced their return to DC and a debut performance at The Anthem, today the band unveils their New Year's Eve plans. If past years have been any indication, it's an event not to be missed.
