will kick off an extensive summer tour on June 11th at Toyota Park in Chicago, IL. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, April 2nd.
The band performed Genesis
' "Watcher Of The Skies
" and "No Reply At All
" this week at the 25th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio
had the privilege of inducting the group.
After the sold-out summer tour last year, Phish
delved into another ambitious undertaking: Festival 8. Held October 30th, 31st and November 1st at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA, it was the band's eighth festival and attracted over 40,000 fans. Highlights from the celebration are captured in the new film, Phish 3D
, which will be released in theatres this April.
The group played eight sets over the course of the weekend, including its first-ever full acoustic set and, reviving a longtime Phish
tradition, a Halloween set that featured them donning a "musical costume
," covering a full album by another band. This year's selection was a double album - the Rolling Stones' 1972 classic, Exile On Main Street
. Complete ticketing and theatre information for Phish3D
will be announced shortly.
