Umphrey’s McGee will celebrate the return to their hometown of Chicago with HD webcasts from the Riviera Theatre this weekend via TourGigs. Not only will fans have the opportunity to stream the show as it happens live, but TourGigs will also offer a download of the live cut of the stream within a week of the show. TourGigs is responsible for the recent Umphrey’s McGee releases from their Halloween shows in Milwaukee as well as all four nights of the band’s 2012 New Year’s Eve run from Atlanta’s famed Tabernacle, among others.
Umphrey’s McGee is in the middle of a strong winter tour, coming off two shows at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD, the second of which featured a special guest on “Layla.” Tony Reali, host of ESPN‘s Around the Horn joined the group on percussion and keys to close the first set. Reali spoke about his experience with the band prior to the show on Monday, watch the replay here.
