Update: The dates we posted initially were correct! Watch the official tour announcement video below!
We were all getting worried there for a little bit- the Phish 2012 Summer Tour dates were nearly looking like they would never come!
But alas, the wait is over and we have just been given 21 show dates that run from June 7th in Worcester, MA to July 8th in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Nearly every stop on the tour is a multi-day run which seems to be becoming the standard for Phish 3.0. The appearance at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival was the only known date leading up to the official announcement though plenty of rumors have been swirling around for months.
It has become pretty obvious that the fan base has swelled exponentially over the last 3 years and that doing single day gigs in a major city is not enough to keep the heads.
The dates that were announced are heavily focused in the East and Midwest. I’d say its only logical that Phish will announce a second leg of tour dates in the coming months- and I’d even venture to call a tour ending run at Dicks Sporting Goods park again. Time will tell though, for now- enjoy the dates that we know!
