After a two-decade hiatus, Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade shared they’ll set out on a goliath, 41-date summer tour touted as the Summer of Green Tour 2023. The performance will mark the ensemble’s first reunion since 2003.
Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigader–comprised of Claypool (bass), Sean Lennon (guitar), Harry Waters (keys), Paulo Baldi (drums), Mike Dillon (percussion), and Skerik (horns)–will kick off their tour in Stateline, Nev. on May 17 before winding its way throughout the country. Notable stops from the band, which was formed by Claypool in the summer of 2000 during a short break from Primus, include Denver, Asheville, N.C., Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Texas, New Orleans, Port Chester, N.Y., Boston, Los Angeles and more. During their travels, the group will also make stops at festivals like Summer Camp Music Festival, the Mountain Music Festival, the Riverbend Music Festival, and the Peach Music Festival.
“In an age of calibrated chaos, moral constipation, and conspiranoia, it is reassuring to know that certain frogs can and do fly,” Claypool shared in a press release announcing the event.
Select shows in June will include a co-headlining set with the Talking Heads members Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew, who will be on the road for their Remain In Light Tour. Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade will also enjoy support throughout the tour from Fishbone, Neal Francis, Budos Band, W.I.T.C.H., and Moon Duo.
A limited pre-sale and VIP upgrade options will go on sale on Feb. 1 at 10 a.m. local time with the code WHAMOLA. General on sale will commence Friday, Feb. 3 at 10 a.m. local time. Learn more and find tickets here.
