For the first time, Trey and Mike are hitting the road together for over three weeks of dates, including a double bill with Phil Lesh & Friends for ten shows beginning June 28 in Raleigh, NC. Rounding out the band is The Duo -- Marco Benevento on keyboards and Joe Russo on drums. Though Mike has been performing with the Duo on and off for the past three years, the genesis of the group came together earlier this year when Trey asked Mike and the Duo to join him for a recording session at a Brooklyn studio. Suffice to say, the material rocks. In addition to the new songs, the group will also draw on each other's repertoire and beyond.
Trey and Mike's dates with Phil Lesh & Friends follow below. Both bands will play full shows -- Trey and Mike will close a handful of shows, and Phil Lesh & Friends will close the rest. In addition, The Benevento/Russo Duo will open each show on their own. We expect to announce up to an additional week of Trey & Mike with the Duo dates sometime shortly.
Tickets will be available through a real time presale beginning Friday, May 5 at NOON EST at http://treytickets.rlc.net. Public on-sales start Friday, May 12. Full show and ticket information will be made available at the http://www.phish.com/tourdates/, http://www.mike-gordon.com and http://www.trey.com over the course of this week.
