UPDATE [Thursday, 11/15/18]: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead announced today that Dead & Company’s Oteil Burbridge will fill in on bass for their four-night run in February (2/14 in Atlanta, 2/15 and 2/16 in St. Louis, and 2/17 in Madison).
Burbridge has long been the band’s go-to sub at bass when Dave Dreiwitz is otherwise disposed with Ween. As of now, no 2019 Ween shows have been officially announced.
Today, in the wake of their final shows of 2018, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has announced 25 new tour dates for the coming year.
Following their previously announced (and already-sold-out) three-night run at The Capitol Theatre in January, JRAD will return to the road for four shows in February including a stop at Atlanta, GA’s The Tabernacle (2/14); a two-night run at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO (2/15, 2/16); and a performance at Madison, WI’s The Sylvee (2/17).
In March, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will hit Albany, NY’s Palace Theatre (3/1); Portland, ME’s State Theatre (3/2, 3/3); Jim Thorpe, PA’s Penn’s Peak (3/13); New Haven, CT’s College Street Music Hall (3/14); Montclair, NJ’s The Wellmont Theater (3/15); and Cleveland, OH’s Masonic Auditorium (3/16).
JRAD’s only shows during the month of April will be a pair of New Orleans late-nights at Mardi Gras World during the first weekend of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (4/26, 4/27). After taking most of May off, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will resume their 2019 touring schedule on the west coast with a performance at Eugene, OR’s Cuthbert Amphitheater on May 31st, followed by shows at Redmond, WA’s Marymoor Amphitheater (6/1) and Missoula, MT’s KettleHouse Amphitheater (6/2).
JRAD tour will resume in July for a performance at Northerly Island in Chicago, IL on July 11th. In August, the band will play a pair of revered venues, with shows at Los Angeles, CA’s Greek Theatre (8/16) and Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks (8/29). Finally, the band will round out their 2019 schedule with a relatively busy September that will see them perform at Dallas, TX’s House of Blues Dallas (9/12); Houston, TX’s House of Blues Houston (9/13); Austin, TX’s ACL Live at the Moody Theater (9/14); Philadelphia, PA’s newly reopened The Met Philly (9/26, 9/27); and Washington, D.C.’s The Anthem (9/28).
The 2019 tour announcement notes that the band’s September 28th performance in Washington, D.C. will be their final show of 2019.
