New York City gets three dates at Madison Square Garden, Dec. 2-4 and then it’s on to Charlottesville, Va., at the John Paul Jones Arena Dec. 5.

Meanwhile, fans are still speculating as to which classic album will get the Phish treatment during the band’s Halloween set. So far, Phish isn’t telling, but the band is saying which famous albums won’t be featured when the group takes the stage Oct. 31 and have listed the eliminated contenders on their Web site.
