More than four years after their last performance on New Year’s Eve in Denver, Colo., Ween will reunite for two shows over President’s Day Weekend at the 1st Bank Center in nearby Broomfield on February 12th and 13th.
Ween founders Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween) and Mickey Melchiondo, Jr. (aka Dean Ween) said that the two shows are “going to be fucking mind-blowing.”
The band, which formed in 1984, has taken on a cult-like status with legions of devoted fans around the world. Beginning with six self-released cassettes in the 1980s followed by 11 studio albums, six live albums and a smattering of EPs through the 1990s and 2000s, Ween’s recorded output is far-reaching in its styles moving from rock to punk to psychedelic to country to alternative and all points in between.
However, it’s the band’s incendiary live shows that have truly cultivated its diehard fan base. With longtime band members Claude Coleman, Jr. (drums), Dave Dreiwitz (bass) and Glenn McClelland (keyboards), Melchiondo and Freeman promise to dig deep into the Ween catalog in Colorado to try “new stuff that nobody has ever heard live before.”
“I can’t wait to get on that stage and hear how happy this makes people,” says Freeman of the forthcoming shows. “Ween is an extension of who we are,” says Melchiondo. “It’s not a persona that we put on to go onstage.”
