Beer and cheese lovers will rejoice at the String Cheese Incident’s just-announced summer tour, which makes a stop at Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown and Big Sky Brewing Company in Missoula, Montana. The tour brings them back to New York to close out at Brooklyn’s historic Kings Theatre.
Following their three-night headlining appearance at Electric Forest, the String Cheese Incident will head out on tour starting with two back-to-back two night stands in Asheville, North Carolina on July 1 and 2 and an “Independence Incident” July 3 and 4 in Atlanta. A few days later, they roll into Cooperstown Friday, July 8 to play Brewery Ommegang, with Twiddle kicking off the night.
The tour includes a couple special multi-night runs, including three nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado and two nights at Big Sky Brewing Company. After two nights in Oregon, they take a couple weeks off before playing the Peach Music Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Aug. 12. They close out their tour with two shows at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn on Aug. 13 and 14.
String Cheese is in the process of recording a new studio album produced by former Talking Heads guitarist and keyboardist Jerry Harrison. They are about to embark on a March Madness tour of Nevada and California.
