On December 30 and 31 Umphrey’s McGee will return to the Aragon Ballroom in its native Chicago for two performances. Opening the night on the 30th will be Z-Trip, while Prefuse 73 is slotted for New Year’s Eve. The band has also confirmed that the NYE show will feature a horn section that includes previous collaborator and current Dave Matthews Band saxophonist, Jeff Coffin. In addition to those two dates, Umphrey’s also will deliver an more intimate gig in the 29th at the Vic Theater. Tickets for all of these shows will go on sale this coming Saturday.
