Incubus will play 'Morning View' in full at Wells Fargo Center this summer - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

In a tour that’s extremely vintage aughties, modern rock five-piece Incubus is going on a late summer run where they’ll play their 2001 LP Morning View in its entirety, and it stops in Philly on August 27th at Wells Fargo Center. Opening the show are the fantasy-laden progressive hardcore outfit Coheed and Cambria, who debuted in 2002 with The Second Stage Turbine Blade.

This paring of heavy rockers is bound to be a crowd-pleaser. Coheed, for all their ostentatious excesses, are formidable players with refined skill that took them from the Warped Tour world to major stages beyond. And in the headlining slot, Incubus is a band that angled its music towards a funk/hip-hop/rock hybrid before that wave dominated modern rock radio at the turn of the millennium, and they did so without the schlock of many of their contemporaries; Morning View was their breakout beyond MTV’s “buzz bin” of the era and into anthemic new territories, and the band is releasing an expanded version of the album to coincide with the tour.

“This album helped propel our little art experiment called ‘Incubus’ into a way of life and here we are today, some 23 years later, about to introduce a new/next phase of it’s existence,” said frontperson Brandon Boyd in a press statement. “Morning View xxiii is a re-recording/re-think of the 2001 album and is the result of our desire to honor this burgeoning legacy but also reimagine it as musicians who have been lovingly performing these songs night after night for the last 23 years.”

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, February 9th, more information can be found at WXPN’s Concert Calendar.
