It’s only fitting that the first posts back be about the bands that we covered so regularly at LMB, with the one band I’ve seen the most clearly taking the lion’s share of the news updates we tried to cover on the site — Umphrey’s McGee. I last saw the boys here in San Francisco at the Warfield for their Halloween mashup-themed show. It was a blast and I ended up getting some sick shots from the concert; see my full set from the show here on my Flickr account.
They just announced a summer tour for the record books, too. Check out the announcement from their email list:
We are unbelievably pleased to share with you our Summer Tour lineup, which will feature a triple bill of Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers and Umphrey’s McGee. This will be Umphrey’s first official world tour, and will include stops at Big Ben (London), Arc de Triomphe (Paris), the Giza Pyramids (Egypt), the Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italy) and our very own Statue of Liberty (New York) with special guest Fred Durst . Dates and on-sale information, including a special VIP Hannah/Jonas/UM meet and greet package, will be available. Stay tuned for more info on what will be an amazing summer for all involved!
