New Riders of the Purple Sage Add Shows

New Riders of the Purple Sage have announced a show at The Bell House in Brooklyn for April 12. The group have also confirmed a gig at the Wildwood Springs Lodge in Steelville, MO on September 27. The aforementioned dates are currently the band’s only confirmed shows for 2014.

Tickets to the Bell House run are now available.

You can also check out our recent interview with New Riders of the Purple Sage’s Buddy Cage—in which he discusses the band’s August 27, 1972 performance at Springfield Creamery (the da’ys Grateful Dead show was later immortalized in the film Sunshine Daydream)—right here.

Never understood why people get so hung up on “original members”. I would have NEVER seen an Allman Brothers, Dead, or countless other phenomenal shows and memories had I subscribed to that philosophy. As long as they are not promoting themselves as something they are not and the music is good what is the difference? People die and move on in other ways. should everyone else just stop playing. BTW I saw NRPS a couple months ago and they were great! Lot of fun, cool time, great music.

Buddy Cage one of the most influential steel pedal players of all time, not an original member but replaced Jerry. Dawson, played with Jerry in one of his first bands in the early 60’s and “original member” Members of Hot Tuna sitting in etc, whats not to like?
