Umphrey's McGee

AEG Presents just announced that the indomitable force in live music, Umphrey’s McGee, will be captivating audiences in Colorado with two exclusive performances. The band is set to take the stage at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail on Friday, June 14, 2024, followed by a landmark performance at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison on Saturday, June 15, 2024.

Event Details:

Opening with a perfectly replicated doo-wop vocal stack, Umphrey’s McGee’s latest release, a ripping cover of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance,” finds the Chicago-based veterans of the improv-rock scene sticking closely to the original wax from Bowie’s 1983 album of the same name. But this new version has a ringer that could’ve never been dreamed up those 41 years ago: the incomparable Huey Lewis on lead vocals.

The concluding day of Bonnaroo 2023, Sunday, June 17th, kept the 85,000-strong crowd of festival-goers spellbound with a grand curtain call performance by The Foo Fighters. The simmering tension of a potential thunderstorm only heightened the anticipation, adding a dramatic edge to an otherwise electrifying day. But in an instance of atmospheric serendipity, the celestial downpour held off, allowing the final chords to echo across Centeroo before the heavens unleashed their symphony.

The Peach Music Festival continued on June 30, 2023, with a full lineup of music across three stages at Montage Mountain in Moosic, PA. The crowd was loving the festivities, and the weather continued to cooperate for the most part.

“A celebration of 25 years of music and the next best show,” is how Chicago-formed improv-rockers Umphrey’s McGee describe Frame x Frame, an all-new retrospective “rockusensory” film about the band of brothers who’ve stepped on stage together more than 2600 times—and growing.

Indy Festival Partners in association with the Indiana State Fairgrounds are proud to unveil an exciting lineup along with additional details for the second edition of the ALL IN Music & Arts Festival, set for Saturday, Sept. 9 and Sunday, Sept. 10, 2023 in Indianapolis. The festival made its triumphant debut in 2022 and is known for its intimate capacity and comfortable amenities that allow for a truly special experience for attendees, with an emphasis on dazzling performers.

For the last two-and-a-half decades, Chicago-formed improv-rock outfit Umphrey’s McGee have been wowing fans, critics, music nerds, and passersby with their wholly unique brand of tunes and explorations. Instead of celebrating 25 years together with a gold watch or some engraved silver plate, the band is continuing to break the mold by finding new ways to give back to their rabid community of fans during this momentous occasion; known henceforth as umXXV.

Kyle Hollingsworth and Joel Cummins have been trying to do collaborative shows for years and it's finally happening this month. The two keyboardists took turns taking fan requests to play the other's songs from the SCI and UM catalogs.

Catch them on a few select nights in Colorado next week!
