The Verve Pipe Announces 2012 Holiday Concerts In Chicago, Detroit and Grand Rapids

What began as a Holiday homecoming celebration and 'thank you' to fans has become a yearly tradition for platinum-selling Michigan rockers The Verve Pipe.

Rounding out the year with home state Holiday shows is a tradition for Michigan alt-rockers The Verve Pipe. 2012 marks the eighth anniversary of the band's annual Grand Rapids concert and the fourth for its Detroit/Ferndale event. They hope to foster another annual musical celebration with the addition of a Chicago show to this year's festivities.

These concerts close out another active year for The Verve Pipe. In addition their appearance at Lollapalooza 2012, the band is readying material for a follow up to A Family Album. NPR concluded A Family Album "ought to bring a smile to even the grumpiest family member, regardless of age."

The Verve Pipe charted hits on mainstream and alternative radio, including the #1 single "The Freshmen," one of the most successful multi-format tracks of its decade. The band has recently played high profile events like the Austin City Limits Festival, Lollapalooza and Central Park's SummerStage delivering high-energy concert events as well as popular family concerts. These family concert events serve to foster the next generation of music fans while giving parents the opportunity to share in their kid's first concert experience.

These events will feature material from the band's collection of hits as well as holiday themed favorites. For tickets and info, please visit venue websites.
