Phish just wrapped their summer tour last week, but they're already announcing fall concert dates. After headlining Austin City Limits on October 8, they'll continue the tour with a three-night stand at Broomfield, Colorado's 1stBank Center, then work their way east, winding things up with three nights at Atlantic City, New Jersey's Boardwalk Hall. The band will play their final, "very special" show on Halloween, where tradition suggests that they'll wear a "musical costume" – i.e., perform another artist's album in its entirety. On past Halloweens they've covered the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St., the Beatles' White Album, the Velvet Underground's Loaded, Talking Heads' Remain in Light and the Who's Quadrophenia.
After two scintillating legs of summer touring, Phish has just announced the schedule for Fall Tour 2010. The 15-show tour starts with a headlining set at Austin City Limits and brings them to a number of venues they haven’t played before including the new 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO; the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta, ME; the Utica Memorial Auditorium in Utica, NY; the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH and Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
Phish kicks off their 2010 Fall Tour on October 10th with a three-night stand in Broomfield, CO and wraps with three shows on October 29th, 30th and 31st at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ (including a very special Halloween show). Stops along the way include Amherst, Charleston, Utica, Providence, Manchester and Augusta. Phish will also headline the sold-out Austin City Limits Festival on Friday, October 8th.
A limited number of tickets are available directly through Phish Tickets' online ticketing system at http://phish.portals.musictoday.com/. The ticketing request period is currently underway and will end Friday, September 3rd, at Noon Eastern time.
Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Friday, September 10th at 10am ET, followed by more public onsales on Saturday, September 11th. For complete ticketing info, please visit www.phish.com.
For the first time, included in the ticket price for each specific date, is a free MP3 download of the entire show (a fully mixed soundboard recording), redeemable at LivePhish.com, often within an hour of the band stepping off stage.

The man who took a plunge from the upper decks of the Jones Beach amphitheater last week was discharged from the hospital on Friday, just two days after his nearly fatal fall at the Phish show. The man's name has still not been officially released, but he reportedly jumped from the balcony—as opposed to being shoved, or losing his balance. And this means he's going to face charges.
According to Newsday, police are seeking to charge him for endangering other concertgoers during his stunt (one person was injured by his 25-foot fall). Captain Bruce Marx of the New York State Park Police said, "Imagine you're standing at a concert and a man drops 25 feet onto your head. [The result] could have been a broken neck." Luckily, the incident occurred during an intermission, when many concertgoers had left their seats for restrooms and concessions (or nitrous).
I noticed a palpable difference in The Greek’s “Maze” and “Tweezer” before he told us about his magic guitar, though I thought the difference was on my end, or due to The Greek’s pristine acoustics. But lo and behold, what I heard were not aural hallucinations, but the dawning of a new age – The Era of The Ocedoc. Audibly stronger as the tour progressed, check out Trey’s work throughout Alpine’s two nights for particularly vibrant examples of The Ocedoc out at play. With his magic guitar leading the way, Trey and Phish are ready to take fall tour by storm in what is quickly becoming a highly-anticipated, small-venue, run of shows. Look for an announcement sometime today to find out when your next chance will be to follow The Ocedoc!
