Phish bassist Mike Gordon hits the road this week behind last year’s acclaimed album Overstep. The tour begins this Friday, June 5 at The Music Hall in Charleston, SC and runs through Atlanta, GA, St. Louis, MO, Chicago, IL, Indianapolis, IN and more before concluding on June 28 at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. The full list of tour dates is below.
Mike will be bringing along Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Robert Walter (keyboards) and John Kimock (drums).
Wired Magazine came out to a show on his tour last year to experience and talk about the new visual, audio and interactive tech-ification that will be a part of this June run.
“I like the idea of breaking down boundaries,” Gordon says. Of the theatrics and curiosities onstage on the Overstep tour, the centerpiece is an interactive piano-like instrument spanning the lip of the stage. At certain points during the show, touch-sensitive panels illuminate; by tapping on them, audience members trigger sounds and jam with the band as it plays. That’s just one piece of the big wacky puzzle. To experience it for yourself, catch one of the shows on this tour.
