(BHM) Goose has announced plans for its 10th annual Goosemas holiday celebration, set for December 8 and 9 at Hampton, VA's famed Hampton Coliseum, marking the band's final shows of 2023.

"Goosemas started as a small holiday party with our friends in Connecticut 10 years ago, so it's wild to bring it to this epic coliseum," says Rick Mitarotonda. "Hampton is a very special place to me, I've only been there once before, but it was a very meaningful and impactful experience, I'm very grateful we have the opportunity to play there this year."

"Goosemas is always one of my favorite shows of the year," adds Peter Anspach. "I love how everyone gets into the spirit with us, and this year it will be extra special coinciding with our first show at the legendary Hampton Coliseum."

Goose is currently traveling on a seemingly non-stop live schedule, including headline shows and top-billed festival sets across America. Highlights include two-night runs at Louisville, KY's Louisville Palace Theatre (June 22-23), Oakland, CA's Fox Theater (September 25-26), and Morrison, CO's world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre (October 5-6).

In addition, this summer will include a sold-out, two-night Independence Day celebration at Asbury Park, NJ's Stone Pony Summer Stage (July 3-4) along with headline performances at such upcoming festivals as Rothbury, MI's Electric Forest (June 25), Scranton, PA's Peach Music Festival (June 29), Garrettsville, OH's Resonance Music and Arts Festival (headlining two nights with four unique sets on June 30 and July 1), Marshfield, MA's Levitate Music and Arts Festival (July 8), Newport, RI's Newport Folk Festival (July 29), Buffalo, NY's Borderland Music Festival (September 15), Redmond, OR's Cascade Equinox Festival (September 22-24), Dana Point, CA's Ohana Festival (September 30), and Live Oak, FL's Suwannee Hulaween (October 26-29).

From there, the Connecticut-based rock quintet will cross the Atlantic for an eagerly awaited EU/UK headline tour, beginning November 3 at Le Trabendo in Paris, France, and then making stops in Cologne, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Berlin, Brussels, Glasgow, Manchester, and Bristol before culminating with a two-night stand at London's legendary Electric Ballroom on November 19 and 20.

In support of building a safer and more supportive music industry through access to quality mental health care providers, Goose will donate $1 from each tour ticket to Backline, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that connects music industry professionals and their families with mental health and wellness resources.

Goose is: Rick Mitarotonda (vocals, guitar), Peter Anspach (vocals, keys, guitar), Trevor Weekz (bass), Ben Atkind (drums), and Jeff Arevalo (vocals, percussion, drums).
