Phish Keeps On Touring After Summer

James P. Hendershot

Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, Md.

Phish won’t be idle come Autumn.  The jam band will follow its summer run with an October-November tour with the band playing multiple nights in every city.

With some markets hosting Phish for three or even four nights, the schedule looks like a long one until you start counting individual cities.  That’s when you realize the fall tour is a five-city affair, opening with two nights at the Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y., and wrapping with four nights at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas beginning Halloween night and continuing through Nov. 3.

Phish shouldn’t have any problems filling venues.  Pollstar’s massive boxoffice data banks buried deep below our Fresno HQ are filled with sold-out shows as well as concerts hitting 85 percent capacity or higher.  The band closed out 2017 with four shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden Arena Dec. 28-31.  When New Year’s Day finally arrived the band’s NYC shows had moved 75,652 tickets and grossed $5,864,233.

Here’s the plan:

Oct. 16-17 – Albany, N.Y., Times Union Center
Oct. 19-21 – Hampton, Va., Hampton Coliseum
Oct. 23-24 – Nashville, Tenn., Ascend Amphitheater
Oct. 26-28 – Rosemont, Ill., Rosemont Arena
Oct. 31-Nov. 3 – Las Vegas, Nev., MGM Grand Garden Arena

A ticket request period for the fall adventure is running through May 29 at 8 a.m. EDT.  Travel packages offered by Phish and CID Entertainment go on sale May 31 at 12 p.m. local time.

All remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public June 1.
