In a surprising move, moe. has given summer a miss and went straight on into autumn. The band announced Friday — a full eight months early — that they will play a Halloween run at the Fillmore in Philadelphia.
Rather than playing on actual Halloween night, the shows will be held the previous Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28 and 29.
This will be moe.’s second Halloween run at the Fillmore. In 2015, they played a stellar Star Wars-themed show there that blew fans away. It was the new venue’s first Halloween concert.
This year, the band is looking for theme ideas. If you have a good one, go comment on the post on the band’s Facebook page. They have covered a wide variety of Halloween themes over the years, from the Electric Lemoe.nade Acid Test (which didn’t actually end up happening on Halloween) to the Democracy Rules show that gave fans the power to vote on the setlist.
Pre-sale for two-night passes begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23. The general on-sale for single-day tickets will hold off until Friday, March 25. So lock in those Halloween plans early this year! You won’t want to miss it!
After next weekend in Baltimore and a St. Patty’s Day weekend in New York City, New York’s own jam band will play a spring run on the West Coast. The only summer dates the band has announced so far are their annual Summer Camp Music Festival in Illinois, and an appearance at Peach Fest and a Colorado run in August.
Let’s hope for some more summer dates soon!
