Pink Talking Fish has announced plans for their upcoming spring tour, which will see the three-pronged cover band play a variety of festivals in addition to stand-alone gigs throughout the Midwest and Northeast. Along with the announcement of upcoming tour dates, the band also revealed plans for a variety of special concept concerts in select cities as part of their 2020 campaign.
Spring tour will begin with the band’s scheduled appearance at California’s Skull & Roses Festival in early April, where the band will perform a special “Pink Talking Fish Are Dead” set where the music of the Grateful Dead will be added to the band’s catalog of Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, and Phish songs. While out west, the band will stop in Colorado for a show at The Fox Theatre in Boulder on April 4th, along with special guests Dire Wolves. PTF will then head back east for a series of shows starting with The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ (4/9); followed by a two-night run at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City (4/10-11).
Pink Talking Fish will then head south to play the Wanee Block Party in Fort Lauderdale, FL at Revolution Live on April 24th where they will play a unique “Pink Talking Fish Are Allmans” set featuring the music of The Allman Brothers Band.
After a show at Some King Of Jam 15 in Schuylkill Haven, PA on April 25th, PTF will travel to The State Theatre in Ithica, NY on May 8th to play a special concert inspired by the Dead’s well-known Cornell University 5/8/77 performance.
The band then continues on with shows in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Virginia, culminating in a double-bill, two-night run with Star Kitchen at Pennsylvania’s Ardmore Music Hall on June 5th-6th to close out the tour. Along the way, Pink Talking Fish will be joined by a rotating cast of special guests and opening acts, including Space Bacon, Strange Machines, and Neighbor, featuring by PTF keyboardist Richard James.
