The Grateful Dead will offer recession-friendly ticket prices, reports CNBC's Steve Liesman Potential Phish Concerts Clear First Hurdle

Telluride has been buzzing since the community got wind last week of the fact that promoters for the rock group Phish were in discussions with the town about bringing the popular jam band here for two nights of back-to-back shows in early August.
On Wednesday, the possibility moved one step closer to reality when the town’s Parks and Recreation Commission voted 4-1 to make Town Park available for the event and extended its traditional curfew from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Commission member Eliot Brown cast the dissenting vote after noting that an “unscientific poll” he took of East End residents who are most affected by Town Park events indicated that the majority of 20 respondents preferred the earlier curfew.
“I’m in favor of the concert, I think it’s a good event and will help the town,” he said, clarifying that his support for the event included its compliance with the earlier curfew.

TellurideDailyPlanet: "Gone Phishing" jam band gets closer to coming to town

It seems like Phish could happen. Yesterday in a special meeting, the Telluride Parks and Recreation Commission gave the nod to promoters hoping to use Town Park for two nights in August to host the iconic jam band, known for its decade-long songs and wandering legion of fans. As it stands right now, promoters would release 9,000 tickets a night on Aug. 9 and 10 and set the curfew at 11 p.m. for the foursome. No opening band is anticipated.

But don’t start shouting opener requests just yet: Promoters still need to collect two more approvals, one from the Commission for Community Assistance, Arts and Special Events and another from the Telluride Town Council. The application will be in front of CCAASE next month.

Planet Bluegrass — the Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s organizer — and AEG Live hope to bring Phish to for the two-night stint. The shows come on the heels of the Telluride Jazz Celebration, which runs in Town Park for the three days prior, August 6-8. The management of Town Park’s space would fall between the Jazz Celebration and Planet Bluegrass.

The shows should serve as a boon for Jazz; if Phish fans want to come early and secure camping, for instance, they would have to come on Sunday and purchase a Jazz ticket.

“We’ve pretty much agreed on about everything we can think of so far,” said Craig Ferguson, President of Planet Bluegrass. Ferguson and his crew will take over the park on Monday morning. The shows aren’t expected to merit closure of the park before the Jazz Celebration was to take it over, regardless.
