Umphrey’s Mcgee To Broadcast Halloween Show Live On TV
Umphrey’s McGee will broadcast their 2012 Halloween show at The Fillmore in Silver Springs, MD live on AXS TV. The special event, billed as “Umphrey’s McGee Presents All Night Wrong”, will air Wednesday, October 31, beginning at 9pm ET. The show will feature a fan curated, covers heavy set list. The band will provide a list of over 40 cover songs ranging from Van Halen to Prince to the Beastie Boys, and umphreaks across the nation will be able to vote on the set list of their choice by going to the Umphrey’s McGee tab on AXZ TV Concerts Facebook page.
“Our live show is malleable – every night becomes its own thing, you never know where the rock show may go,” keyboardist Joel Cummins explains. “This show will be a unique event for us as we perform a rare set of fan selected covers to accompany a set of original compositions. The addition of live TV creates a palpable energy that will add excitement for both the fans and the band.”
