As we turn the corner into February, let’s take a look at an exciting upcoming run of shows going down next month. Phil Lesh will reunite Phil Lesh and Friends for the first real P&F shows since 2008. All the info that’s fit to print on these shows can be found below.
Who: Phil Lesh and Friends, featuring Warren Haynes, John Scofield, and Jackie Greene on guitars, Jeff Chimenti on keys (just added today!), Joe Russo on drums, and Phil Lesh on bass guitar.
Where: Broomfield, CO – First Bank Center
When: February 16, 17, and 18 (Thurs/Fri/Sat of President’s Day weekend)
Tickets: Buy tickets through TicketHorse here. Lots of tickets left, doesn’t look like these shows will be selling out.
What to Expect: Phil-heads everywhere (yours truly included) have very high expectations for these shows. This is an all-star band and the combination of Warren and Scofield is not something to miss. Expect high-energy, fast-paced, psychedelic versions of Dead classics, lots of covers, maybe some new Furthur cuts, a few Jackie Greene originals, and some surprises as well I’m sure.
To wet your appetite for these shows, and give you a taste of what this lineup is capable of, check out this Phil and Friends show form Mountain Jam 2007 that featured Warren and Sco on red-hot dueling guitars. Or just sample the few vids below from that epic night…
