moe. has announced a two-night run on February 2 & 3, 2018 at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. This will be the band's first two shows back since bassist/vocalist Rob Derhak was diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer in July. According to a recent press release, Derhak has made tremendous strides in his recovery following treatment.
Moe. was forced to cancel the majority of their Summer Tour in 2017, as well as their pending Fall dates while Rob underwent treatment. The outpouring of love & support from the fans has been equaled only by the anticipation for the band’s return.
Derhak commented, “It’s been a tough few months, and I couldn’t have done it without the overwhelming support of my family, and my famoe.ly. And although it’s still not clear what the future brings, the positivity and love that I’m feeling for moe.’s and my next chapter is beyond exciting. I feel like a kid counting down the days until Christmas, and our energy as a band, is like nothing I’ve experienced before. Thank you all for the well wishes, prayers, and healing vibes.”
A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available Wednesday, November 15th, at 10:00am EST. General on sale begins Friday November 17th, at 10:00am. Kung Fu will provide direct support on Friday February 2nd. February 3rd is an "evening with" moe. Both nights will feature 2 full sets from the band.
