Umphrey's McGee coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg




Looking for a new band to inherit the space on your iPod usually occupied by Phish or Widespread Panic? Try Umphrey's McGee.

Over the last decade and a half, the Chicago sextet has become one of the most reliably electric groups on the jam-band circuit, with an epic prog-fusion sound and even more epic live shows. Rolling Stone pegged Umphrey's McGee as one of 10 must-see acts at last year's Bonnaroo, and they did not disappoint, delivering a dynamic, four-hour, late-night set.

Umphrey's is a regular at festivals like Bear Creek and Wanee, but it's been quite a while since they've been in our part of Florida. So it's nice to see they've added a date in St. Pete on their upcoming spring tour.

Umphrey's McGee will perform at Jannus Live on April 13, according to their website. A fan pre-sale will begin today; we're still waiting on details for a public sale. We'll keep you posted.
