PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly, I’ve never seen Phish before and I am adding them to my concert bucket list to get to on their next NYC visit somehow. The closest New York shows for me with this summer go round will require my getting the Batplane up and running again to save on the travel time. I’ve heard so many great things about their shows and think that fans who head out to where they are playing are in for a fantastic time. They often play three hour plus shows and have insane guest stars and that is worth the money for sure. What do you think of these summer tour dates? Will you be heading to one or more of these shows? Let me know in the comments section below.
