Oysterhead, the jam-band supergroup of guitarist Trey Anastasio (Phish), bassist Les Claypool (Primus) and drummer Stewart Copeland (The Police), will reunite for a pair of shows in Broomfield early next year.
The band announced the Feb. 14-15 concerts at the FirstBank Center as part of its Freestyle Sessions Gathering. More dates are expected to come soon, jambands.com reported, given that the group also launched its first Instagram and Twitter presence this week.
The band only has one album — 2001’s “The Grand Pecking Order” — and last performed live at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in 2006 in Manchester, Tenn.
Tickets to the all-ages sets are on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 via ticketmaster.com by visiting the Pepsi Center and Dick’s Sporting Goods Park box offices the following business day (Monday, Oct. 21), pending availability.
Tickets are $80 each. A note on ticketmaster.com adds the disclaimer, “Delivery delay in place until Nov. 4, 2019.”
Expect tickets to go quickly, both because Colorado is a hot-bed of jam-band culture and because an informal survey of online chatter reveals lots of potential out-of-state visitors coming in for this one.
Two-night travel packages for $1,059 and $759 are on sale now.
