New Year’s Tickets Fly

Miami 2009 > 2010 (Wendy Rogell)

Yesterday, the last Phish Tickets-By-Mail emails of the year went out, notifying lottery winners of their booty and officially kicking off the final ticket-trading frenzy of 2010. With this weekend’s on-sales, just like that, the end of 2010 is in sight. It’s hard to believe that 2011 is on the horizon; Miami feels like only yesterday. As fall tour kicks off in a matter of days, the Phish scene is in full swing once again. With the band’s second Halloween and New Year’s Run of this era on the docket, we have seamlessly slid right back into a Phish-filled existence. With all of the “firsts” behind us, this upcoming season has the distinct feeling of a musical blast into the future. Ready to move mountains again, less than two years into their return, Phish has infused the entire community with unparalleled excitement, as the next 15 shows drip with limitless potential. With proficiency no longer a factor, this tour will be the first in which the band hits the ground running.

Then Phish will return to the only real venue for a New Year’s Eve blowout – Madison Square Garden in New York City. After not knowing how this era would unfold, things could not look more positive at this point in time. And for that we can be all be grateful. Austin on Friday and Colorado on Sunday…we’re almost there. The final quarter of the year looks like the best one yet!

Congrats to all lottery winners and good luck this weekend in the last Ticketmaster battles of 2010!

Here’s a scorching flashback to the early summer in Hartford, Connecticut.

Oregon Ducks

Another retro-nugget from a college town, this show – 19 years ago this week – comes from Oregon, a state Phish may or may not ever play again. If current trends are indicative, the Pacific Northwest, except The Gorge, isn’t even on the band’s radar screen. Here’s to some west coast Phish in 2011!

I: Chalk Dust Torture, Foam, Paul and Silas, Split Open and Melt, Bouncing Around the Room, The Landlady, Runaway Jim, It’s Ice, Eliza, Llama, Memories, Golgi Apparatus

II: Brother, Reba, Poor Heart, Cavern, Run Like an Antelope, I Didn’t Know, Sparkle, The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > Suzy Greenberg, Fee, Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove

E: The Squirming Coil, Fire

Note: Many copies of this show that circulate include Alumni Blues and Lizards at the end of set I but this is filler from an unknown show.

    That music actually wasn’t all that bad.

    I envision the boys ride “multi-beasts” form the rear of AC BHall with nothing but the spots on them. These beasts go from the back to the stage, like the hot dog in Cypress. This music playing wouldn’t be Meatstick but rather that music on the video….each time the electronic voice says BASS, BASS you just replace it with GAME, HENGE.

    Madness all around.

    definitely not bad, Aqua, just not phish!

    7.23.99 birds of a feather — $$$

    I’m sure many of you know of this one already, but it is 25 mins of psychedelic wonder. should be heard not only for the $$$ jam but for trey’s vocal delivery. He’s obviously cracked up by something and barely holds back from full on laughing. Pure glee.

  9. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Pieces are falling into place quite nicely. My buddy from PDX whose coming to NYE may have an extra pair of 12/30 for me. In return i have to help him try and score 12/31/

    Sumo/ Gdad or anyone else…Do you know if there will be any tickets sold in outlets for MSG, outside on NY. Like , say NJ?

  10. sumodie Says:

    @mrP: Good question regarding outlet sales….dunno….best to call TM and find out

    Most of all, be familiar with any local outlet you go to!

  11. sumodie Says:

    From tour info at

    Public Ticket Information:

    Tickets will go on sale to the public on Saturday, October 9th at Noon EST. Tickets can be purchased online at or charge by phone at 866.858.0008. If tickets are still available, they may be purchased at the venue box office beginning Monday, October 11th (Mon – Sat 9am-6pm). Tickets may also be purchased at select TicketMaster outlets.

    But no mention of which outlets will sell them…very sly

    !!!And DO NOT go to the venue on Saturday -no tix sold at MSG!!!

    (I know you weren’t going to venue, mrP)

  12. Mr.Palmer Says:

    thanks sumo. There is an outlet in E. Rutherford. I’m going to call them and find out. They may only be in NY though.

    ” if tickets are still available,…may be purchased Monday…” pffft…

  13. Mr.Palmer Says:

    oh well, that place no longer exists in E. Rutherford.

  14. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

  15. purplehumpbackwhale Says:
