Along Comes Mr.Oysterhead – Supergroup Announces Two Colorado Dates for February

Rumors of a possible Oysterhead reunion ramped up over the weekend when mysterious Instagram and Twitter accounts appeared using the @oysterhead and @realoysterhead tags.

The supergroup, which included Trey Anastasio of Phish, Les Claypool of Primus and Stewart Copeland of the Police last performed in 2006 at both Bonnaroo and the Allgood Festival.

On Tuesday, the band announced two dates for 2020 in Colorado. The band will play Feb. 14 and 15 at 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, CO. The ticket request period is open now and runs until Thursday, Oct. 17 at 9:00 a.m. MDT. General on-sale will begin Saturday, Oct. 19 at 10:00 a.m. MDT.

The band came together originally as a one-off for the 2000 New Orleans Jazz Fest when Claypool was tasked by promoters to assemble a band. Claypool contacted Anastasio and the two agreed to ask Copeland to join them to complete the power trio.

They recorded one studio album, The Grand Pecking Order and embarked on a supporting tour in 2001.
