Ween to Play the Agora in July

When Ween embarked on its first tour nearly two decades ago, it was a little-known duo from New Hope, Pennsylvania that traveled on such a low budget, it had to put all the drum and bass parts of its songs on a cassette tape that it played along to.

Despite having shared bills with Fugazi and the Butthole Surfers prior to hitting the road on its own, most of the shows on the group's first club tour were disasters, with attendance figures barely breaking into double digits.

Times have certainly changed. When the group reunited in 2016 after a short hiatus, it played a series of sold-out shows and successfully hit the festival circuit.

Earlier today, the band just announced a new set of tour dates for the summer and will perform at the Agora on July 24. We saw the guys put on a rocking show at the club some 18 years ago, so we look forward to seeing them perform there again.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
