Phish Plot Four-Night New Year’s Live Stint at Madison Square Garden
Phish will celebrate New Year’s with a four-night stint at Madison Square Garden – performing December 30th, 31st, January 1st and 2nd at the historic New York City venue where they’ve played 31 times since December 1994. Online ticket requests are available at the Phish Tickets website until Monday, September 28th at noon EST. A public on-sale will begin Friday, October 2nd at noon EST via Ticketmaster and the MSG box office.
The legendary jam band will perform three nights at Phish: Riviera Maya, a sold-out stand-alone resort concert event planned for Mexico’s Caribbean coastline from January 15th to the 17th, 2016.
Phish closed out their summer tour this month with a three-night run in Commerce City, Colorado. In late August, the band hosted 30,000 fans at Magnaball, their three-night festival in Watkins Glen, New York. (“Phish once again remade the world around them to their own design,” our critic wrote in Rolling Stone‘s review.)
Guitarist Trey Anastasio has a full itinerary planned for year’s end, with a brief autumn tour with the Trey Anastasio Band planned for October. The jaunt will begin with two shows, October 16th and 17th, at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, culminating with a pair of dates, November 13th and 14th, at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium. Paper Wheels, Anastasio’s 10th solo LP, will be released October 30th.
The Trey Anastasio Band lineup includes drummer Russ Lawton, bassist Tony Markellis, keyboardist Ray Paczkowski and a full horn section featuring trombonist/vocalist Natalie Cressman, multi-instrumentalist James Casey, and trumpeter/vocalist Jennifer Hartswick.
