Phil Lesh announces Capitol Theatre shows w/ Jorma Kaukonen in his band
The always-busy Phil Lesh is currently celebrating his 79th birthday with a run at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre, which continues tonight (3/15) and Saturday (3/16), with Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in his band (among others), and Amy Helm joining him on the Saturday show. Today, it was announced he’ll be returning to The Cap for two more Phil Lesh & Friends dates in the summer, where he’ll be joined onstage by Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna’s Jorma Kaukonen. These shows happen on June 11 and 12. Tickets to both dates are on sale now.
Phil’s also got a bunch of other upcoming dates besides his Cap shows: Red Rocks show in May with The Infamous Stringdusters, Scranton, PA’s Peach Music Festival and Virginia’s FloydFest in July, and Pickathon in August. All Phil Lesh dates are listed below.
In other Grateful Dead news, Bob Weir is touring with his new trio Wolf Bros this month, having stopped in the NYC area this week. He’ll be playing Buffalo tonight, in addition to further shows in St. Louis, Austin, Miami, Charleston, and more.
