St. Louis, MO
December 29-31, 2011
For the final three nights of 2011, a year that included much commercial success on the heels of Death By Stereo, Umphrey’s McGee took up residence in St. Louis to give their fans one last dose of the bombastic and improvisation-riddled progressive rock brand for which they are known.
Over the course of the three night run, the Chicago natives delivered offerings from their expansive catalog to the sold-out crowd of their faithful Umphreaks while the rest of the faithful were watching at home via simulcast.
Brian Spady was on the scene for the duration to capture and bring back images from the festive occasion.
