The evening will be a chance to enjoy the modern classics from each artist's long history as well as some new music they have created for the occasion (and certainly cover songs beloved to them repurposed and retooled for this tour). This is the first time Mercury Rev's music has been performed in many parts of America for nearly a decade.

The location of the venue will be emailed to ticket holders the day before the show.

All Ages.
