The String Cheese Incident will perform a handful of â€œIncidentsâ€ in 2010. The band will play their greatest hometown venue, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, on July 23, 24, and 25. In addition theyâ€™ll set up camp at a site close to the bandâ€™s/fansâ€™ hearts, Horningâ€™s Hideout (near Portland, Oregon), July 29 through August 1.
This announcement ends a three-year break from performing; a hiatus interrupted only once – this past summer – when SCI united to headline ROTHBURY for one incredible Incident.

By all accounts, The String Cheese Incidentâ€™s only performance in the past three years – at the ROTHBURY music festival in July 2009 – was magical. It left the band and its community itching for more. This summer, SCI steps into a new decade to deliverâ€¦
For this new era, SCI stays true to its roots – by nurturing their community and creating live musical experiences rather than just concerts. In 2010, look for SCI to continue to think out-of-the-box about their musical journey â€“ hosting special events instead of the typical tour-routing, exploring new ways of releasing new recordings, and building on their reputation as innovators of fan participation.
The String Cheese Incidentâ€™s recent live release, Trick or Treat (SCI Fidelity Records / October 2009), offers fans a chance to relive the groupâ€™s legendary â€œHulaweenâ€ Incidents. Known to perform special concerts comprised heavily of cover tunes each Halloween, Trick or Treat offers selections from SCI performances recorded at Atlantaâ€™s Variety Playhouse (1998), Philadelphiaâ€™s Electric Factory (1999), Portlandâ€™s State Theatre (2000), New York City (2001), Los Angelesâ€™ Shrine Auditorium (2002), Sin Cityâ€™s Cox Pavilion (2003), and Madison Alliant Energy Center. The two-disc release is available now on CD, vinyl, and digitally at www.stringcheeseincident.com.
