Phish returns to New York City for another four-night New Year’s run at The Garden beginning Saturday, December 28th through Tuesday, December 31st. A ticket request period is now underway at tickets.phish.com (ending Monday, September 30th at 10AM ET). Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, October 4th at Noon ET. (as we didn’t see a full on press release, I cribbed this from the bands Official Facebook Page – Thanks Zuck).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking we have never ever managed to catch Phish in action but truth be told the Jam Band scene isn’t covered all that much on the PiercingMetal website. I’ll still list the dates on our Events Calendar for the readers who like to go to as many shows as possible in the year and of course, I will express my interest to the bands powers that be when we are a little closer to the happenings. Some close friends really rave about them and I’d like to see a band that I have never witnessed before when its a possible thing to do. What about you readers? Are you Phisheads (that’s the title right?) How many times have you seen them and do you go to one, two or all of the nights of their annual residency? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
If you’ve been paying close attention to the tour announcements area of the website, you might recall my sharing the news about Phish doing their “Baker’s Dozen” tour in NYC. It was essentially a lengthy residency and you can refer to THIS LINK if you just felt like seeing it despite it having happened already. The other day the band announced their annual New Year’s Eve performances which will take place once more at the famed Madison Square Garden. Check out the cool poster.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly, I didn’t get to ANY of those “Baker’s Dozen” gigs from over the summer despite having some interest in catching at least one. Historically speaking I’ve never caught Phish in concert and with the way that my friends speak about their shows its something that I need to do before they decide to retire. With so many bands calling it a career, you never know when a break is coming or a hiatus or what have you. Okay, so in order to get your tickets you have to go through their system which can be found on THIS LINK. Good luck on getting them because I’ve been told that they sell out almost immediately. If you feel like adding anything more to this narrative please do so in the comments section below since its always nice to hear from you. Until next time.
