Actually, the rumored dates I had previously posted weren’t too far off.
The summer concert series will kick off on June 11 in Chicago and will wrap up August 18 at Jones Beach, NY. The tour has 29 stops along its journey, all of which won’t let down fans.

This announcement of their summer tour also comes with a secondary announcement. They will now have their own 3D movie, called Phish 3D. The movie will consist of footage shot during Phish’s Festival 8, a 3 day festival that happened over this past Halloween and covered numerous Rolling Stones songs. It will be released some time this April. Visit the website to sign up for more information as it becomes available.
Well, I’d say Phish fans are certainly getting their jollies this month. Now, let’s see how fast those tickets sell out!
