Umphrey's McGee Embark on Fall Couch Tour

You don’t have to go any farther than your favorite sofa to enjoy Umphrey’s McGee’s Fall 'Couch Tour', which kicked off earlier this week at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH.  Consisting of 12 shows that runs until their two-night residency at the Orpheum Theater on Madison, WI- the band’s 2,000th gig- every performance will be live-streamed via a collaboration between Umphrey’s McGee and concert streamer TourGigs.  Each show carries a $9.99 price tag that includes a 24-hour replay. Or you can buy all 10 streams for $49.99. 

Attendees at any of the Umphrey’s McGee tour will also have the option to purchase the band’s “Headphones and Snowcones” experience, where fans can rent high-end wireless headphones at the shows to listen to the direct feed from the soundboard.  A video on the “Headphones and Snowcones” experience can be viewed below.

Umphrey’s McGee features one of rock’s finest percussive duos with, Pearl Drumset Artist, Kris Myers manning the drums, and, Pearl Percussion Artist, Andy Farag handling the percussion responsibilities.  On the couch tour, Kris Myers will be relying on his go-to Reference Series drums and Ultracast Aluminum snare drum, while Andy Farag will turn to his preferred Bobby Allende Signature Series Congas and Bongos, along with Marc Quinones Primero Timbales, a plethora of Reference Pure toms, and various Pearl Percussion Toys.  For more information on Umphrey’s McGee ‘Couch Tour’ can be found at
