…And so it continues!! Having recently played a five night New Years Run at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Great Cycle Spectacles shows in Denver and Chicago, as well as Mayan Holidaze in Mexico with the Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, Big Gigantic, The Polish Ambassador and Lance Herbstrong, the STS9 fam is taking a little bit of time to relax… but not for long. Yesterday, the band announced that they would be continuing their Great Cycle Spectacles tour, kicking their next show off on Friday, April 20th and continuing the following night on the Saturday, April 21st.
For those who had the pleasure of seeing STS9 on their recent tour can honestly attest to the fact that Tribe continues to amaze. Although there is debate on whether or not the addition of computers and electronic elements have made Tribe a different band, many fans fail to realize one fact: their struggles and progress have demonstrated the same passion, commitment, ambition and love that they convey through their music as they did in the beginning stages of Sector 9. Between their recent shows, however, the band has strived toward providing their fans with all of their STS9 needs – between computer-less and all ARTiFACT sets, as well as acoustic performances and unchartered journeys through time, space, and the Great Cycle Spectacles – and have been killin’ it by doing so.
The Oakland Spectacles are sure to be unique without question: with Tribe’s acoustic renditions of “The Fog”, “986 Ft. Tall Trees” and “H.B. Walks to School” recently brought back into the set list rotation at the Denver, Chicago and Mexico shows, the Oakland Spectacles are guaranteed to hold some great surprises for STS9 fans.
