Ween Announce 2017 U.S. Tour
The reunion of Ween has apparently taken hold. With their brief breakup behind them, the duo of Gene and Dean Ween are returning to the road throughout 2017.
Their updated calendar adds 10 shows between June 2 at the Royal Oak Music Theater in Royal Oak, Mich., and July 16 at the Kettlehouse Field in Missoula, Mt. This is in addition to a handful of previously announced gigs, including slots at the Nelsonville Music Festival in Nelsonville, Ohio, the Sweetwater 420 Fest in Atlanta, and the High Sierra Festival in Quincy, Calif. You can see all their upcoming concerts below.
Pre-sale for the new dates begins tomorrow (Feb. 28) at 10AM local time with the password "mollusk." Tickets for the general public go on sale on Friday (March 3) at 10AM local time. Visit their website for complete details.
Ween broke up in 2012, with Aaron Freeman (Gene Ween) calling the band a "closed book," even though Mickey Melchiondo (Dean Ween) refused to admit that it was a permanent split. But in February 2016, Dean was proven right, with the band playing a stand in Broomfield, Colo., in which they didn't repeat a single song over the three nights.
