Yes people it is happening. In my opinion there isn’t a better collaboration out there. This is going to be HOT! Personally I plan to catch 6/28 Alltel Pavilion at Walnut Creek – Raleigh, NC. This should be good people.
For the first time, Trey Anastasio and Mike Gordon are hitting the road together for over three weeks of dates, and they have asked the Duo to round out the band. The run of shows begins on June 28th in Raleigh, NC and includes a double bill with Phil Lesh & Friends for ten shows beginning on 6/28. Though we have been performing with Mike on and off for the past three years, the genesis of the group came together earlier this year when Trey asked us and Mike 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, Mike and the Duo’s dates with Phil Lesh & Friends follow below. Both bands will play full shows — Trey & Mike w/ the Duo will close a handful of shows, and Phil Lesh & Friends will close the rest. In addition, The Benevento/Russo Duo (hey, that’s us!) will open each show on our 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 on the [Duo] Shows page over the course of this week.
