Phil Lesh and Friends will perform at Rumsey Playfield in New York City’s Central Park on Wednesday, May 28. This incarnation of the band will feature Lesh, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, John Medeski and Joe Russo. Tickets for the show will go on sale via the Capitol Theatre website at noon on Friday, April 25.
The New York Times announced the performance in their review of last night’s Phil Lesh and Friends performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The Rumsey Playfield show will be Phil Lesh and Friends’ first performance in Central Park, though Lesh did play a quick, surprise set in the park with Eric Krasno and Joe Russo during 2013’s Jazz and Colors.
