Upcoming Shows: Umphrey’s McGee Iowa Summer Dates

DPP_0012sig
On the heels of a victorious two nights at the Rothbury Festival over the Independence Day weekend, the mighty men of Umphrey’s McGee will resume their typically packed Summer tour schedule which runs through September and includes three Iowa dates! Next week they play Des Moines at the Simon Estes Riverfront Amphiteater on Wednesday July 15th, and at the gorgeous Capitol Theatre in Davenport on Thursday July 16th. I’m planning on hitting the Davenport show.

Actually the states surrounding Iowa are served very well during this run as well with KC on July 17th, two nights at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin on July 18th and 19th followed by 10K Lakes. After a full-band break filled with side-band shows, and full band two-nighter in Urbana at the Canopy Club, we get Umphrey’s back in Council Bluffs, IA at the new Horseshoe Casino venue Whiskey Roadhouse.

In other cool Umphrey’s news– as part of the month of June bonus downloads that you can get with the purchase of the Mantis CD, the band provided a tribute to Michael Jackson in the form of three Michael Jackson covers mp3’s.  The first mp3 was from Richmond, VA on 6/25/09 on the news of the passing of the King of Pop the band did a very straight version of “Billy Jean.” The second mp3 is a cover of “The Girl Is Mine” from their 11/3/06 Madison, WI show. The last track is a medley of snippets of Michael Jackson “teases” from the last weekend in June following his passing. More information from the band’s excellent blog, where you can listen to the track yourself!

BTW: All of the free post-release downloads are still available, so if you don’t have Mantis yet, it is well worth the purchase and is one of my favorite albums of 2009.
