Phish will kick off its 2013 summer tour with its first-ever concert at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine (7/3), which will be followed by a three-night stand at Saratoga Performing Arts Center (7/5-7). The outing will also include an evening at Toronto’s Molson Amphitheatre (7/9), marking the band’s first concert in Canada in nearly 13 years, and Phish’s first shows at Charter One Pavilion on Northerly Island (7/19-21), which is located on a 91-acre peninsula that juts into Lake Michigan and offers a stunning view of the Chicago skyline. West Coast dates include Phish’s return to The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA (7/26 & 27), the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA (8/2-4) and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl (8/5). For the third consecutive year, the band will wrap up its summer run with a trio of Labor Day weekend shows (8/30 – 9/1) at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. An online ticket request period for the tour is currently underway at http://tickets.phish.com/. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning March 29 and 30. For details, visit http://phish.com. Ticket prices for each specific date on the tour will include a free MP3 download of the evening’s entire show (a fully mixed soundboard recording) that can be redeemed at www.LivePhish.com shortly after the band steps off stage. In a 2012 live review, the SF Weekly praised Phish’s “undeniably infectious appeal,” noting: “a live Phish show is a wholly unique experience…Songs like ‘Possum,’ ‘Tweezer,’ and perennial fan favorite ‘Run Like An Antelope’ were positively thrilling rides of sonic confluence” while the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette observed: “the lawn was absolutely packed — the usual turnout — and it was difficult to find anybody who wasn’t having the time of his life.” “[The] quartet still has the ability to surprise…The Hollywood Bowl has rarely been as ebullient as it was on Monday,” said the Los Angeles in a review of a sold-out 2011 show. Rolling Stone recently named Phish as one of “The New Immortals” – current bands that the magazine predicts “will stand the test of time.”
