Summer ’09! Finally!

header-newThe dates have finally been posted. After many different sources have leaked dates, Phish.com has just posted the first leg of summer tour with the help of another cool announcement video featuring the mysterious Santa Monica skywriting and a “Punch You In the Eye” soundtrack.  The dates are as follows:

6.04.09 Nikon at Jones Beach Theater, Wantagh, NY
6.05.09 Nikon at Jones Beach Theater, Wantagh, NY
6.06.09 Comcast Center, Mansfield, MA
6.07.09 Susquehanna Bank Center, Camden, NJ
6.09.09 Asheville Civic Center, Asheville, NC
6.16.09 Fox Theatre, St. Louis, MO
6.18.09 Post Gazette Pavilion, Burgettstown, PA
6.19.09 Verizon Wireless Music Center, Noblesville, IN
6.20.09 Alpine Valley Music Theater, East Troy, WI
6.21.09 Alpine Valley Music Theater, East Troy, WI

Tickets are now available for request NOW right here!  Interestingly enough, when these go on sale to the public, they will be sold by Live Nation and not Ticketmaster. I’m not sure if that changes much, but we shall see.

At first glance, what jumps out are the two Tuesday night performances at the Ashville Civic Center (7,654 capacity) and the Fox Theatre in St. Louis (5,060 capacity)!  Those are some TINY shows for this era!  Surprising is only one night in the cornfields of Noblesville. Phish has played only multi-nights stands there since 1997. Two nights at Alpine in the perfect closer for the initial summer leg.  Don’t be surprised when Bonnaroo is inserted between Ashville and St. Louis.  This looks like a great and manageable first leg. See you on the road!  More to come…

Trey sounds siiiick. definitely using a compressor. Mike is dropping BOMBS. you can hear them thru this garage door right on 25th and every time mike drops a bomb the whole garage door shakes.

Exciting stuff in this part of the world!
