Umphrey’s McGee Announces Halloween Run

Umphrey’s McGee has announced today that they will be returning to The Pageant in St. Louis on Oct., 29 & 30 for a two-night Halloween run of epic costumes and exciting cover mash-ups, a Halloween UmphTradition.

Last year the group did mash-ups such as “I Can’t Rock My Dream Face” (“Can’t Feel My Face,” by The Weeknd; “Dreams,” by Fleetwood Mac; “Rock with You,” by Michael Jackson) and “Back in Sexual Healing” (“Back in Black,” by AC/DC; “Sexual Healing,” by Marvin Gaye). The last time that they did Halloween in St. Louis in 2010, they did mash-ups such as “November Walk” (“November Rain,” by Guns n’ Roses; “Cemetery Walk”) and a “Bright Lights, Big City” with “Superstition” (Stevie Wonder) teases. It has been three years since the last Umphrey’s McGee show at the Pageant in February of 2013.

Umphrey’s will be offering an UmVIP package which will include access to a premier viewing section, private cocktail servers, an UmVIP exclusive merchant item, limited edition signed poster, mp3 downloads of both nights and a commemorative laminate. They will also be offering travel packages to include rooms at the Ritz-Carlton downtown with transportation to and from the venue on both nights.

Pre-sale tickets & UmVIP go on sale on Friday, June 24 at 10 AM CT; public sale will begin on Friday, July 1 at 10 AM CT.
