Connecticut rock band Goose have shared the latest installment in their ongoing behind-the-scenes video series, Day of Show. EP 11 goes backstage for an exclusive look at Goose’s recent co-headline tour with Trey Anastasio Band, including exclusive fly-on-the-wall conversations with Rick Mitarotonda, Peter Anspach, and Anastasio during which the Phish guitarist offers a rare glimpse into how he developed his guitar playing and signature sound from his earliest days until now.
Shot at Syracuse, NY’s famed War Memorial Arena and directed by Bryan Murphy, the new episode – which follows the monumental moment in Episode 9 in which Anastasio sat in with Goose during the second of two sold-out shows at New York’s iconic Radio City Music Hall last summer – further sees Goose frontman Rick Mitarotonda and Anastasio getting together backstage to talk about their shared passion for music and jam on their respective instruments, offering an insightful glimpse at the powerful synchronicity that both bands brought to each night of the sold-out tour.
Goose is currently poised to embark on their eagerly anticipated Spring Tour 2023, a five-week journey visiting 14 cities across the US set to get underway March 23 at Boston, MA’s Roadrunner and then traverse the nation through late April. The tour includes sold-out two-night stands at such iconic venues as Philadelphia, PA’s The Met (March 24-25), Nashville, TN’s Ryman Auditorium (March 31-April 1), Chicago, IL’s The Salt Shed (April 14-15), Bozeman, MT’s The Elm (April 18-19), Seattle, WA’s The Paramount Theatre (April 22-23), and San Francisco, CA’s The Warfield (April 27-28).
What’s more, Goose – who recently made their first-ever live appearances on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! – will precede the upcoming tour with a sold-out, five-night run at Port Chester, NY’s historic Capitol Theater, set for March 8-12. In addition, Goose will also be among the headline acts at an array of upcoming festivals and events, including Dead & Company’s annual Playing In The Sand in Riviera Cancun, MX (January 14-17), Okeechobee, FL’s Okeechobee Music x Arts Festival (March 2-5), New Orleans, LA’s Daze Between New Orleans (performing on both May 2 and 3), Chillicothe, IL’s Summer Camp Music Festival (May 26-28), Lexington, KY’s Railbird Music Festival (June 4), Rothbury, MI’s Electric Forest (June 22-25), Garrettsville, OH’s Resonance Music and Arts Festival (June 29-July 1), and Floyd, VA’s FloydFest (July 26-30).
