The it’s not us tour continues, as Umphrey’s McGee returns to the West Coast in March 2018. After taking a year off, UM returns to Aspen for a triple-header and the tour continues through Salt Lake City, Missoula, Seattle, Portland (times two), culminating with four nights in sunny California. Aspen will host a umVIP program (because after all, it’s Aspen), complete with elevated viewing, a pre-show band meet-and-greet, and more. West Coast Tour – the most wonderful time of the year.
Now, let’s talk support. We have stacked the tour with six phenomenal and diverse support acts who will join us along the way. Eclectic six-piece powerhouse Big Something kicks off the tour with us in Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. In New Haven and Philly, we are pumped to shake things up with the support of two fiery front-women, the sweet retro-soul sounds of Nicole Atkins (January 25 & 26), and upbeat Americana newcomers Hayley Jane & The Primates (January 27).
The Marcus King Band joins us from Columbus through Asheville, sharing their unique brand of soul-influenced psychedelic southern rock. The Russ Liquid Test is with us on the left coast, where they’ll bring their NOLA-inspired blend of funk, jazz, and electronica to Missoula and Seattle. Finally, a funky L.A. trio, Organ Freeman, wraps up the tour with us in Tahoe, Oakland, L.A., and San Diego.
