After months of debating and guessing on message boards and the like, Phish has now confirmed what many will say were their guesses anyway. Through a video released today that, as per usual is uniquely their own, the rumor mills and Phish sewing circles may now officially (for a moment) come to a halt. Yeah right! Let the lottery requests begin…
"Phish kicks off their Summer Tour 2011 on Memorial Day weekend, playing three consecutive nights (May 27, 28 & 29) at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, NY. Stops along the way include Cleveland, Cincinnati, Mansfield and more, as well as 2-night runs in Holmdel, Columbia and Alpharetta.
Fans purchasing tickets for the Darien Center, NY concert will receive free admission to Darien Lake Theme Park on June 8th, the day of the show. The theme park, which is adjacent to the Performing Arts Center, will be open exclusively to ticketholders on that date.
Additional summer announcements will be coming. Following the summer, the band has no touring plans for the remainder of the year.
A limited number of tickets are available NOW through Phish Tickets’ online ticketing system at http://phish.portals.musictoday.com/. The ticket request period is currently underway and will end Friday, March 4th at 11:59pm Eastern. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 11th. For complete ticketing info, please visit the tourdates page.
As with the band’s Fall Tour, included in the ticket price for each specific date, is a free MP3 download of the entire show (a fully mixed soundboard recording), redeemable at LivePhish.com, often within an hour of the band stepping off stage."
