moe. went on indefinite hiatus in July of this year following bassist Rob Derhak’s cancer diagnosis. Derhak underwent treatments for nasopharyngeal cancer throughout the summer and is now fit to take the stage again. The band announced Tuesday that it will perform two dates at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre Feb. 2 and 3.
moe. was forced to cancel the remainder of their scheduled dates following Derhak’s diagnosis. His most recent performance with the band was at the Huckleberry Jam in Idaho on July 28. They will perform two sets each of the two nights at the Capitol. For the Feb. 2 show, they will be joined by Kung Fu. Feb. 3 will be “An Evening With moe.”
A limited amount of pre-sale tickets will be available through Ticketfly beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15. General on-sale begins Friday, Nov. 17 at 10:00 a.m., again through Ticketfly.
No other dates were announced by the band. Derhak issued a statement with the announcement:
It’s been a tough few months, and I couldn’t have done it without the overwhelming support of my family, and my famoe.ly. And although it’s still not clear what the future brings, the positivity and love that I’m feeling for moe.’s and my next chapter is beyond exciting. I feel like a kid counting down the days until Christmas, and our energy as a band, is like nothing I’ve experienced before. Thank you all for the well wishes, prayers, and healing vibes.
