Ween to Play It Off Legit and Reunite
Two February shows in Colorado have been announced, and are promised to be “fucking mind-blowing.”
Gener and Deaner of Ween have a long and storied history together, but in 2011, the bananas and blow got a bit out of hand at a show in Vancouver, and soon after that Aaron Freeman announced his decision to retire the “Gene Ween” persona, effectively breaking up the group.
Recently, however, both original members have been touring under the Gene Ween and Dean Ween monikers, thus fueling rumors of a reunion, which were today confirmed. All set to be joined by the integral post-Mollusk lineup of Claude Coleman, Jr. on drums, Dave Dreiwitz on bass, and Glenn McClelland on keys, Ween will play two shows at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado, on February 12 and 13. Online ticket requests have started here.
“Ween is an extension of who we are,” said Deaner in a press release. “It’s not a persona that we put on to go onstage.”
There’s been no promise of additional shows yet, but there’s been no word to the contrary, either (Coachella 2016 headliners confirmed?). In the meantime, you can enjoy the band’s performance in the 1994 classic It’s Pat.
