Umphrey’s McGee will continue their tradition of starting their first full tour of the year in New York in 2015.
Joined by saxophonist Joshua Redman, UM will play shows at NYC’s Beacon Theatre on Friday, Jan. 16, and Saturday, Jan. 17, before shipping the party out to Long Island. The Chicago-based improg powerhouse makes their debut at Huntington’s Paramount Theater on Jan. 18. Umphrey’s and Umphreaks alike rejoice when award-winning saxophonist Redman joins the sextet on stage, which he has done sporadically for the past decade.
2014 has been a huge year for UM, as they launched their own Nothing Too Fancy Music record label and their first album off N2F, Similar Skin. They close the year out with a historic 5-night run at Atlanta’s Tabernacle Theater from Dec. 30, 2014- Jan. 3, 2015, before opening up their first proper tour of 2015 in New York.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 19, and tickets will be on sale to the public on Friday, Sept. 26. More information can be found here.
