Three-and-a-half years ago, the experimental rock outfit Ween called it quits after 25 years. “It’s time to move on,” Aaron Freeman, aka Gene Ween, told Rolling Stone in May 2012. “I’m retiring Gene Ween.”
This Presidents’ Day Weekend (February 12 and 13), that retirement will end when the band reunites for two concerts at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado – their first shows since their farewell gig in Denver on New Years’ Eve 2012.
In a press release, Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo, Jr. (aka Dean Ween) said that the two shows will be “fucking mind-blowing” and that they will feature “new stuff that nobody has ever heard live before”. Check out a poster and trailer for the event below.
