Ween to Reunite for Two Shows in Denver This February
Three years removed from their breakup and four from their last show together, Ween have announced they will reunite for a pair of shows this February.
Gene and Dean Ween -- aka Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo, Jr. -- will play a two-night run at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colo., on Feb. 12 and 13. Tickets go on sale to the public on Nov. 20 at 10AM MT at this location. Check out a promo video up above and the concert poster at the bottom of the page.
For the shows, Ween will be joined by their touring band comprised of drummer Claude Coleman, Jr., bassist Dave Dreiwitz and keyboardist Glenn McClelland. In a press release, the band promised the shows will be “f---ing mind-blowing” and spotlight “new stuff that nobody has ever heard live before.”
“I can’t wait to get on that stage and hear how happy this makes people,” Freeman added.
“Ween is an extension of who we are,” Melchiondo said. “It’s not a persona that we put on to go onstage.”
Ween played their last show on New Year’s Eve in 2011. They officially broke up in 2012 when Freeman told Rolling Stone, “It’s time to move on. I’m retiring Gene Ween.” The news seemingly came as a surprise to his bandmate. Since then, Freeman has released two solo records while Melchiondo has continued work with his band Moistboyz.
