Many of us experienced a wave of joy when Phish announced they were reuniting one year ago. That joy spread during their summer tour last year, during the “8” Festival on Halloween weekend, their late Fall tour (the Albany shows are reviewed here), and most recently, seeing them play two Genesis songs during the 2010 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Well now that joy threatens to consume us all, as it’s time for another summer Phish tour! They are concentrating on the Midwest and East coast, but those of you out west can catch them for 3 nights in Berkeley, CA or a couple of Colorado shows. The list of dates is here (click on the movie in the center of the screen):
But for those of us who can’t wait until summer to get our Phish phix, there’s good news! The aforementioned “8” Festival in Indio, CA took place on October 30, 31 and Nov. 1 of last year, and featured Phish’s very first all-acoustic set, and for their Halloween album performance, they covered the Rolling Stones’ masterpiece Exile on Main Street in its entirety. Lucky for us, they were filming the shows, and now in what seems like a “highlight reel” format, they have condensed the performances into a 2-hour movie…in 3D! Preview screenings will be held in 9 select cities on April 20th (that’s 4/20 for those of you who see the connection), and then the film will be released nationwide for one week. Check out the trailer:
