The String Cheese Incident is known to shake things up with its tours. This is not the type of band to have an East-Coast, West-Coast, and Mid-West tour, evenly spaced throughout the year. This year alone they’ve played in Mexico with Dead and Company, Los Muertos Con Queso (Get it?), played a string of Mid-West intimate venue shows, a two night run in Atlanta, and are playing a sleuth of new festivals like Summer Meltdown, The Oregon Eclipse Festival, and Element Festival in Princeton, BC, (not to be confused with Elements Fest in Brooklyn).
The only thing that seems normal this year is the annual three night run at Red Rocks Amphitheater that just took place July 21-23. After thanking the fans for a wonderful hometown throw down, the band announced that this year it will be playing a pair of Thanksgiving weekend shows in Chicago on November 24 and 25 at the Chicago Theater. SCI also announced it they will ring in the New Year with a three night stint at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY.
This comes as a huge surprise to fans, as this will be the first year not held at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield Colorado since 2012. Cheese heads in the Northeast are rejoicing as they plan ahead for what will be a weekend to remember. This past New Year’s Eve, the band welcomed Big Gigantic for an entire set of the “Big Gigantic Incident” and The Floozies for their own set the following night. We can only guess what cheesy goodness they’ll serve up to us this year.
Ticket info and details are expected to drop soon. And remember, Life is Gouda.
