Royal Oak Music Theatre to host sold out Ween performance

Royal Oak Music Theatre will host a sold-out performance with eclectic alt-rock outfit Ween on Friday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Ween most recently dropped its seventh live album, GodWeenSatan Live. The two-disc collection, released in November 2016 via Chocodog Records, chronicles the band’s September 2001 performance of their debut album, GodWeenSatan: The Oneness, which took place just three days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. GodWeenSatan Live was recorded live to 24-track tape in Ween’s hometown of New Hope, Pennsylvania at John & Peter’s.

GodWeenSatan: The Oneness, Ween’s debut studio long-player, was originally released through Twin/Tone Records in January 1990. The album received a reissue through Restless Records in 2001 featuring digitally remastered sound, brand new packaging, and three bonus tracks.

The ensemble will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its third studio long-player, Pure Guava, later this year. The album, released through Elektra Records in November 1992, is anchored by the band’s most well-known track, “Push th’ Little Daisies.”  Recorded on a four-track, Pure Guava included tracks from two tapes that Ween originally made for friends.

The Mollusk, Ween’s sixth LP, will turn 20 years old this summer. The multigenre concept album, released through Elektra Records in June 1997, is supported by the singles “Mutilated Lips” and “Ocean Man.” It debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and No.159 on the Billboard 200.

This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the band’s ninth full-length, La Cucaracha, released via Rounder and Chocodog in October 2007. The album, recorded with Grammy-winning record producer and former bassist Andrew Weiss, reached No. 69 on the Billboard 200.

This all ages ticketed event is sold out. Royal Oak Music Theatre is located at 318 West 4th Street in Royal Oak, Michigan. For more information, visit Ween’s website and Royal Oak Music Theatre’s website.
