After you combine one part jam-band, the lingering smell of spilled bong water fused with cool ranch Doritos, and finally, the sound of acoustic guitar blared from your mother’s basement, you potentially get a band known as Phish. If I wanted to listen to someone that doesn’t wash his hair rattle on about peace, love, and understanding, I’d take my time machine back to Woodstock . But for those of you Phish fans reading this, you’ll be happy to know the band announced some upcoming shows.
Progressive rock band Phish just recently announced a new set of North American tour dates. The group hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down since returning in 2009 following their five year hiatus. (more)
Longtime progressive rock band Phish is scheduled to ring in the New Year at New York City’s Madison Square Garden with material for three different shows from December 30th to January 1st. The group will headline the DCU Center in Worcester, MA December 27th and 28th before they hit the Big Apple. Their website just recently announced this statement: “Not only will the New York City run include a three-set New Year’s Eve show, but for the first time in Phish History, the band will perform on January 1st.”
Phish is currently looking forward to their string of fall concert dates beginning at the Austin City Limits Festival October 8th. They also plan to make stops in northeastern areas that include Augusta, Utica, Providence, Amherst, Manchester and Atlantic City.
Trey Anastasio announced his desire to produce new material and set up additional shows in the near future. “I’m trying to write songs that work for both (Phish and TAB),” he said in a recent interview with Relix. “Or I’m actually thinking, after this run of Phish shows, of maybe doing a couple of very, very small sort of acoustic shows. And I was just thinking this morning that I’m trying to get songs that work in every context.” Check back for more Phish tour updates right here at Ace!
The second leg of Phish’s long, American summer tour wrapped up just a week ago, but the band has already plotted their next venture. After headlining Austin City Limits on October 8th, Phish will kick off their Fall 2010 Tour in early October with a three-night stand in Broomfield, CO. The three-week tour will wrap up with three shows on October 29th, 30th and 31st at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ, including a very special Halloween show. Stops along the way include Amherst, Charleston, Utica, Providence, Manchester and Augusta.
A first for Phish fans, included in the ticket price for each date is a free MP3 download of the entire show, a fully mixed soundboard recording, redeemable at LivePhish.com, often within an hour of the band stepping offstage. Throughout the summer, Phish performed 29 shows from June to mid-August, with all but two shows on the East Coast. The Vermont natives must have a thing for their home region, with the last nine shows scheduled for the fall to take place in or close by New England.
Phish’s most recent release is their fourteenth studio album Joy, just as much a staple to their career as their earliest works. This album not only brought the band back together, but reunited them with producer Steve Lillywhite, who produced Billy Breathes (1996) and marked their 25th anniversary. The next addition to their massive career-long catalog is due out September 19th, Tab at the Tab, recorded live on February 27, 2010 by the Trey Anastasio Band at the legendary Tabernacle in Atlanta.
Phish has a tradition of putting on very special Halloween shows. In the past few years they’ve taken on the persona of their biggest inspirations, covering complete albums such as the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main St., the Beatles’ White Album, the Velvet Underground’s Loaded, Talking Heads’ Remain in Light and the Who’s Quadrophenia. This year’s highly anticipated Halloween tour is just the next in line of what’s been a tradition of blasts from the past. The tour will hit Amherst’s Mullins Center for a special two-night stint for October 23rd and 24th before travelling to Manchester, NH and wrapping up in Atlantic City for Halloween.
Legendary rock band Phish is back for more performances! They just recently released a string of concert dates from November 18th to December 5th at different venues in cities including Portland, Detroit, Syracuse, Philadelphia, Albany, New York City, and Charlottesville. The Portland, ME show is set for November 29th at the Cumberland County Civic Center. They will then travel to Madison Square Garden for three concerts from December 2nd to the 4th. Before heading to the east coast, Phish will be the headliner for a three-day eight set festival at Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA.
Rolling Stone Magazine said the band has ”spawned a new wave of bands oriented around group improvisation and super extended grooves,” and continued to claim them as “the most important band of the Nineties.”
The band all year has been working on their 14th studio album “Joy” with Lilly White. The first single “Time Turns Elastic” was available on iTunes in May, followed by the album release on September 8th.
