Cult hero alt-rock oddballs Ween have announced that they will perform at the iconic Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on Tuesday, June 5th, 2018. The announcement comes on the two-year anniversary of their return to the stage in Colorado following a four-year breakup.The band last performed at Red Rocks in on July 12th of last year, and has played there 6 times dating back to 1995, when they served as one of the supporting bands for Big Head Todd and The Monsters for their two-night headlining run. So far, this announcement marks the band’s first scheduled date of 2018. However, Freeman’s touring schedule is completely clear according to his website, and Melchiondo is only booked during the end of March and beginning of April with The Dean Ween Group, so we wouldn’t be surprised if there are even more new Ween dates in the works.As the band’s announcement denotes, a pre-sale period for the Red Rocks show will begin on Tuesday, February 13th at 10 am MT, and the general on-sale will begin on Friday, February 16th at 10 am MT. For more information, or to purchase your tickets when they become available, head to the band’s website.[Cover photo: Dave DeCrescente]
