Adam Berta – Summer Migration
Goose, pictured performing at Denver’s Sculpture Park last July, announced its summer touring plans Tuesday.
Just over a month after announcing its Radio City Music Hall headlining debut – and adding a second date at the New York City theater after the first immediately sold out – Goose announced a summer tour Tuesday.
The rising jam band’s “Dripfield Summer Tour” includes its previously announced Aug. 18 Red Rocks headlining show, already sold out, as well as two-night runs at Westville Music Bowl in New Haven, Conn. (May 27-28); Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio (June 10-11); The Chrysalis Amphitheater in Columbia, Md. (Aug. 12-13); and Dillon Amphitheater in Dillon, Colo. (Aug. 16-17).
The Connecticut group also shows booked at venues including Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas (Aug. 20) and Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre (Aug. 21).
Goose’s robust summer touring calendar is rounded out by prominent festival plays at Boston Calling (May 29), Tennessee’s Bonnaroo (June 17), Pennsylvania’s Peach (June 30-July 3), California’s High Sierra (June 30-July 3) and Washington’s Thing (Aug. 26-28).
“We are eternally grateful to our Goose family for the support to push our boundaries and explore music in some truly beautiful spaces this summer!” said singer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Anspach in a statement.
Along with revealing its touring plans, Goose announced a new album, Dripfield, which is set to arrive June 24.
Despite its quick ascent, Goose has history at some of the venues on its summer itinerary, including Westville Music Bowl, where it sold 4,706 tickets and grossed $266,707 over two nights in June 2021.
Goose finished 2021 strong, anchoring one of three Lockn’ weekends with August’s FRED The Festival in Virginia and selling out two nights at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre to ring in 2022, with 5,089 sold tickets generating $251,322 grossed. That run was the band’s second-highest box office take ever, surpassed only by two shows at Denver’s Mission Ballroom the previous month that grossed $328,490.
“Goose is the young band with the momentum in the scene,” promoter Peter Shapiro, who booked Goose for Lockn’, told Pollstar last August. “You can sometimes just feel when a band has the momentum and musical skills and charisma and everything that goes into being a band that can have a long-term career in live music.”
Shapiro added, “Goose has had the fastest rise of any band I’ve seen in this jam world since Phish.”
Tickets for Goose’s newly announced shows go onsale to the general public on Feb. 25 at 10 a.m. ET.
