Joe Russo's Almost Dead
This show has been postponed to March 20, 2022
Statement from the band:
Due to the recent COVID-19 Delta variant surge, we’ve decided to postpone our upcoming indoor shows in Madison, WI & St. Louis, MO until March 2022. After much consideration and discussion, we believe it’s in the best interest of our fans, band and crew to err on the side of safety and caution at this time.
Unfortunately, we will also be cancelling our shows on Thu, Aug 26 at GLC Live at 20 Monroe in Grand Rapids, MI and on Fri & Sat, Oct 15 & 16 at Mardi Gras World Ballroom in New Orleans, LA. For Grand Rapids and both New Orleans shows, refunds will be automatically issued to all ticket buyers.
For Madison and St. Louis, there will be a 30 day window for anyone who would like refunds. Otherwise, purchased tickets will once again be good for the rescheduled dates. Please note, Jon Shaw will now be playing bass on the rescheduled dates in Madison & St. Louis.
As of now, we will continue playing shows with the additional safety precautions listed below. As the year progresses, we will make decisions based on the best data available with the health and safety of ourselves and our fans in mind.
We apologize for the bad news and deeply appreciate your understanding.
Wishing you all love and health,
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead
About the Artist
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead is Scott Metzger, Tommy Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, Marco Benevento & Joe Russo.
“Not only does this quintet play tight and vicious versions of some of the most complex songs in the Grateful Dead’s repertoire, but they play them with a rawness & energy absent from the stage since the ‘Live’ Dead era. More importantly, all of the jams are wild and incredibly adventurous. Russo’s a beast behind the kit who’s in the peak of his career. Metzger is a criminally underrated guitarist who has a chameleon-like ability to alter his sound to compliment any situation. Dreiwitz’s intensity is unmatched by anyone, while Benevento spouts these crazy tones and layers of sound that mix the best of what each keyboardist in GD history brought to the band. Finally, add Hamilton, whose voice and biting leads help push this ensemble over the top.” – Scott Bernstein, Jambase 9.12.13
