This past weekend, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong gave a breakout performance at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN; it may very well be their largest play to date! Although big things are still on the horizon for this summer – like their debut Red Rocks Amphitheatre performance on July 12th with moe. – the band is looking ahead and today they unveil their Fall 2018 tour dates.
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
These are the tall tales told by campfire light, under the moon just slight, and peppered with lasers dancing overhead. The scissor-like sidestep from reality, Summer Camp sizzled brighter than ever this year. There was Pigeons Playing Ping Pong with a rainbow net, a revival of the old 1992 hip-hop days, and a field full of living flowers being watered by the sun. 2018’s installment of Summer Camp had musical notes formed by clouds for miles.
Themes for the weekend include:
- Throwback Thursday
- Flower Power Friday
- Super Shiny Saturday
Late night sets are being announced 1 pm EST tomorrow (Thursday) when we’re coordinating the announce!
- Thursday: The Mantras
