So, um... Phish is back

guess i'm not too surprised to not see a thread about this over here yet, but...

http://www.phish.com

PHISH TO PLAY THREE CONCERTS 10.01.08

Phish returns to the stage for three concerts at the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia on March 6, 7 and 8, 2009.

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 on Wednesday, October 8th at 11:59AM EST.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, October 18th at 10 AM EST and may be purchased online at http://ticketmaster.com or by phone at 757.671.8100, 757.872.8100 or 804.262.8100. Tickets will not be available at the venue box office and there is a two-ticket limit per show.

The band intends to announce additional touring in 2009 early next year.
i'm more excited than i thought i would be, but i'm not gonna go too crazy trying to get tickets for these shows. i put in for tickets, and i'll try ticketmaster, but i'm not gonna be too upset if i'm not there.

just hoping they do it right this time.

I put in for the tickets and tried to find a hotel for the weekend. Every Hotel is sold out in a 5 mile radius.

Whew, that's a relief. For a while there, I was worried that baked teens wouldn't have any modern band to idolize.

What's this about hotels? I say get a van or pitch a tent and hang out with the tapers! Just don't eat the chimichangas. I am excited that they are touring again but won't go to that show. Hopefully they head towards Texas.

I take it you've never been to Hampton, I would barley feel safe sleeping in a hotel room.

i'm not gonna worry about hotels until i have tickets. i don't mind having something 10 miles away from the venue. we'll see if the tickets actually happen first.

Good news, would love to see them again, I hope the 09 tour is pretty extensive.

My mom and brother gave me tickets to the Clifford Ball for my graduation and then my brother and I drove cross country to see them, what a great time.

denied as well. At this point I'll just wait for the tour announcement. I have no desire to endure the ticketmaster headache.

The DVD geek in me had a huge hard on when I saw that posted

My buddy and I are planning on doing Hampton (I already have Sunday, need the rest), Jones Beach, Bonnaroo and Redrocks. Best Summer Ever.

Nice, I'm all over that. That was a great road trip to NY, I think at that time it was the biggest (attendance wise) show in history in N. America.
