The String Cheese Incident has announced their 2007 Summer Tour, and the end of an era as the band calls it quits. In the fall of 2006, SCI announced it would make no plans beyond summer 2007, as SCI guitarist Billy Nershi would be leaving the group for other endeavors.
During their 2007 Summer Tour, the band will stop in cities they hold dear and will rework last summer's landmark tour, Big Summer Classic.
Post-Bonnaroo, they'll kick things off with three nights at New York's Beacon Theatre. Then they'll head west, before heading to Salem, MO for the return of the Big Summer Classic, now a three-day camping festival on the weekend of August 3-5.
In the tradition of the inaugural BSC tour in summer of 2005, the festival will feature friends and SCI offshoots. Confirmed so far are Los Lobos, Yonder Mountain String Band, JJ Grey & MOFRO, The Wailers, EOTO and others will be announced. Visit www.bigsummerclassic.com for more information.
The tour will end at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, where it all began.
