PHISH, today, is announcing its summer 2020 tour. The 27-date trek begins on the west coast with two shows at the Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, OR, and culminates with the 10th anniversary celebration of the band’s Labor Day run at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park in Colorado. Other summer 2020 highlights include a two-nighter at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, GA, Phish’s first-ever performance in Arkansas, and a special three-night run on the beach in Atlantic City, NJ. The full itinerary is below.
Phish has announced a number of upcoming summer live dates in addition to their unprecedented Baker’s Dozen run at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The new dates include three shows at Chicago, IL’s Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island (Friday, July 14th, Saturday, July 15th, and Sunday, July 16th), one night stands at Dayton, OH’s Nutter Center (Tuesday, July 18th) and Pittsburgh, PA’s Petersen Events Center (Wednesday, July 19th), as well as the band’s seventh annual Labor Day Weekend run at Commerce City, CO’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Friday, September 1st, Saturday, September 2nd, and Sunday, September 3rd).

Phish’s return appearance at Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center on June 22 included many stops and starts, surprises, and power driven rock that would fit in nicely on a Mayhem Festival stage. Burlington, Vermont’s favorite sons got the party started with a loose and rollicking spin on “Wolfman’s Brother” from 1994’s stellar album, Hoist. Then, in a surprising change of pace, the group ignited a flurry of dancing in the aisles, and on the synthetic lawn with a jazz raving cover of the Frank Zappa instrumental gem, “Peaches en Regalia.” It set the mood for the entire performance, and the bulging phlock of Phish heads that travel around country with the improvisational troupe seemed at peace with the area’s Coney Island amusement park atmosphere. A pair of dog influenced tunes followed, as lead singer and guitarist Trey Anastasio led the ensemble through the bouncing, linear grooves of “Shaggy Dog,” and the bustling drive of “Runaway Jim.” Drummer Jon Fishman’s anchor of rhythm based percussion flavored a rich take on Traffic’s “Light Up or Leave Me Alone.” Read more
