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.

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.

  5. yematt Says:

    phoam, you have mail, yo.

    What up my bb’ers?

  14. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Don’t think I deserve to be first there, but I’ll take it.

    Anyone have the current number for supply of 10/31s on stubhub? I assume it’s still something egregious?

  15. verno329 Says:

    So what’s the board been up to recently? Knowing I’ve got a showless Fall and NYE run has forced me to stay off the comments for a couple weeks.

  16. yematt Says:

    kind of random but did anyone on here think phish was going to play Deer Creek 2 with a spooky/scary themed show, since it was on friday the 13th? i remember a lot of buzz in the campgrounds about phish was going to freak everyone out. but of course alas, nothing came of it.

  17. KWL Says:

    seems like nye is already taking pressure off 10/31

  18. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Just walked through Penn Station. It needs to be three months from now, now.

    Also, the battle between the regular crowd and the w00k invasion for hetty sleeping space in the main concourse is going to be Lord-of-the-Rings epic.

    we got the darker set on the 12th, with the Split and encore

  20. stitchstash Says:

    KWL, I love your attitude! I’m not even trying for Halloween. I wish I were though. I’m holding out and I’m going to play all my cards to get to 1/1. It is my 11th anniversary after all! Money has been tight all summer long. I’m just thankful to be going to Utica.

  21. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    @mitch – come by my place after work one day soon to bane/beers.

  22. yematt Says:

    yeah, i was just thinking that @ butter. actually i’m deep in the spit right now. weird.

  23. MJK444 Says:

    I scored two floor seats for NYE! WooHOOO.

  24. yematt Says:

  25. KWL Says:
