The Venues of Leg One

6.25.10 (Graham Lucas)

Instead of posting on Phish Thoughts today, I guest wrote a column for Hidden Track about the venues Phish will play this coming June. The intro is below, and you can click over to Hidden Track to read the entire piece:

*****

With this summer’s Phish dates just announced, the excitement in the fan community has skyrocketed, as everyone has begun to plot and scheme their own summer plans. On the heels of a triumphant year of game-changing music for this era, 2012 is filled with anticipation to see what is next for the band. Will they delve deeper into abstract jamming—a hallmark of 2011—or will they veer off that road? All that remains to be seen, but the one thing we know for sure is where the shows of the first leg will take place. Aside from Bader Field, this tour is comprised of venues that hold a significant amount of Phish lore. But let’s forget about the band for a moment, and take a look at the places where the magic will happen. Below are some tips from personal experience that might enhance your enjoyment at each stop along the way.  Read on here…

    Did you know that Michael Jackson used Hall and Oates bass line from “I Can’t Go For That” in “Beat It” …. FACT.

    Darryl Hall said in an interview he was stoked and honored and didn’t even cross his mind about royalties.
