Colorado’s String Cheese Incident will follow last year’s first tour in four years with a three-week jaunt this summer. The run kicks off at the band’s Electric Forest festival in Rothbury on June 29 – July 1 and continues with a three-night stand at Red Rocks on July 5 – 7. Following gigs in Park City, Utah; Flagstaff, Arizona and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, the jam-meets-electronica-meets-bluegrass act will play a pair of shows at the Greek in Berkeley and ends the tour with four shows at Horning’s Hideout in Oregon on July 19 – 22.
The band, who jokingly refer to themselves as “String Cheese Lincident” in the tour announcement, will sell tickets to fans through SCI Ticketing service charge-free. Here’s the explanation…
Way back in the summer of 2003, the band filed a lawsuit in Federal Court against Ticketmaster. The basic gist of the lawsuit was that the band wanted to maintain the ability to sell a large amount of tickets directly to the fans with the intention of keeping the service charge as reasonable as possible. Some very pointed discussions took place, the issue was resolved and the band continued selling tickets as they had always done. Fast forward to today and pay attention….this is the exciting part….The String Cheese Incident is proud to announce that we have figured out a way to finally achieve the ultimate goal with this whole ticketing exercise! Every ticket bought through SCI Ticketing will be SERVICE FEE-FREE! That’s right….if you order tix thru the band’s website there will be no service charge add-ons aside from shipping (which is out of our hands)…..the ticket price that is listed is the price that you will pay. The band is going to cover the credit card fee….the band is going to cover the cost to take the orders and fulfill the tickets….the cost of a $49.95 ticket to Red Rocks will cost you $49.95…..the cost of a $49.95 ticket to the Greek will cost you $49.95….a $239 ticket to Horning’s will be $49.95…just kidding, it will actually be $239….that’s it….super simple. We’ve got a big batch of tickets to sell but the supply is not limitless….get ‘em while you can!
