Group’s 40th anniversary tour will resume in August

Ween have canceled their April tour dates so frontman Dean Ween can “preserve [his] mental and spiritual wellbeing,” according to a statement he posted to social media. Ticket holders will receive refunds automatically, and Ween will get back on the road this summer for North American dates in August and September.

“For the majority of my life I have been blessed enough to have a career doing the thing that I love the most,” Dean Ween wrote. “This privilege has never been lost on me. The fact that the music reaches other people and means so much to them is something that I never take for granted, and for which I am truly grateful, all of the time, every time we perform.

“At this moment in time though I need to step away from performing live in order to preserve my mental and spiritual wellbeing, and instead focus on myself and loved ones,” he continued. “I know this will come as a disappointment and with great inconvenience to many people who bought tickets and made travel plans, and for this I sincerely apologize. I look forward to returning to the stage with the enthusiasm, joy, and renewed sense of inspiration that our fans deserve, and that I require of myself when we play live. Thank you and god bless.”


The tour, which was meant to celebrate the 40th anniversary of when Dean met Gene and formed Ween, was originally to kick off in Atlanta on April 19. A handful of dates would have brought them to Richmond, Virginia on April 27.

The band formed in 1984 and released its first full-length, GodWeenSatan: The Oneness, in 1990. Its most recent album, La Cucaracha, came out in 2007, though Gene and Dean have released solo material since then. Rock2, the most recent album from Dean, whose real name is Michael Melchiondo Jr., came out in 2018.
