Umphreys McGee Debuts Prince Cover In Minneapolis:


The second show of a three-night stand at First Avenue showcased a new cover in The Purple One’s hometown.

It wasn’t until mid-way through “Bright Lights, Big
City” that the first cover of the night came out, the debut of Prince’s “When Doves Cry.” UM
had previously incorporated the Purple Rain track into one of its Halloween mashups
along with Blue Öyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” and their original “Pay The Snucka”
which they dubbed “Don’t Fear the Doves, Snucka” and played only once on October 31, 2013. Last
night’s proper debut of “When Doves Cry” led back to the end of “Bright Lights, Big City”
followed by a stand alone “Partyin’ Peeps.”

Umphrey’s McGee finishes up their three-night stand at First Avenue tonight. The show is being
webcasted over at TourGigs which you can purchase here.
