Ween will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its landmark Chocolate and Cheese album in Philadelphia next summer, the band announced Tuesday. Set for September 27th, 2024—exactly 30 years after Ween’s fourth album hit shelves—the concert will mark the band’s debut at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts.

Initially teased back on the 29th anniversary, Brothers in Boognish Dean and Gene Ween (Mickey Melchiondo and Aaron Freeman, respectively) gave fans plenty of time to mark their calendars. The only things the band left off were the venue and ticket details, which are available now. On recent trips to the City of Brotherly Love, Ween has opted for the more intimate The Met, but for the 30th-anniversary concert will make the jump to the 14,000-capacity outdoor Mann.

Tickets for the Ween Chocolate and Cheese 30th anniversary concert will go on sale to the public on Friday, December 8th at 10 a.m. ET via the band’s website. A pre-sale will begin Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET.

Ween is no stranger to full-album recreations, with the band previously performing its 1994 album in its entirety at Desert Daze back in 2019, as well as The Mollusk at Riot Fest a month prior. In 2018, Ween reunited with The Shit Creek Boys for a celebration of the band’s 1996 homage to twang, 12 Golden Country Greats, at Ryman Auditorium—though the band split the 11 songs across two nights.

Long before all of that in 2001, Ween performed all 26 songs from the band’s original 1990 debut, GodWeenSatan: The Oneness, live in its hometown of New Hope, PA. The band later released audio from that show, billed as the 25th anniversary of GodWeenSatan (though it was actually the 11th anniversary), as GodWeenSatan: Live in 2016.
