Leftover Salmon has announced that it will kick off its Celebrating 20 Years Tour on December 28 at The Eldo in Crested Butte, CO. This is the very same venue where the group debuted on December 31, 1989. From the Eldo, the group will head to the Boulder Theater for gigs on December 30 and 31. The Emmitt-Nershi Band will open on the 30th, while Salmon will command the stage itself over three sets on the 31st. Then on January 2nd, a “Salmon and Friends” show will take place at Denver’s Ogden Theatre, in which the group will be joined by a number of as-yet-unannounced players.
