Phish Summer Tour 2012: Alpine Valley, SPAC, Jones Beach, Deer Creek and More

Photo by Andy Hill

Phish have announced the first leg of their 2012 summer tour. Kicking off with a two-night run at Worcester, MA’s DCU Center on June 7-8, the tour will take the band to Bonnaroo before heading to Atlantic City, NJ for a three-night run at Bader Field (the site of 2011’s DMB Caravan and Metallica’s Orion Festival this summer). Throughout the tour, Phish will visit a mix of sheds and arenas, including summer staples like Burgettstown, PA’s First Niagara Pavilion, Deer Creek (Klipsch Music Center), Alpine Valley and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. While Phish’s Bader Field shows are not billed as an official festival, three-day passes and travel packages will be available for the event. The group’s summer plans were first leaked yesterday after eager Phish sleuths hacked into the band’s official website. The band will confirm additional dates in the coming weeks.

Phish’s ticket request period is currently underway and will end Monday, March 12 at 11:59am Eastern. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 16. For select shows, general admission lawn tickets will cost $45.00 while reserved seats will cost $60.00.

Michael "Moose" Flaherty February 29, 2012, 14:24:21

All The Way Turnt Up! Darien Lake during the second leg? This dippy hippy will be in the house!

Josh February 29, 2012, 15:16:19

Still no west coast dates. Last year they had like 3 total. I mean I get that they’re an east coast originating band but jesus christ.

danno February 29, 2012, 15:49:11

Bill, isn’t this whole Bill hype over? Who gives a fuck? I want them to cross the border into Canada sometime! Can Trey not do that because of legal shit? Also, anyone else hear the All Good rumours?

Kern February 29, 2012, 15:49:24

Sorry Billy Boy, but people do still like Phish.

troof February 29, 2012, 16:25:42

Bill… We do. Because it’s fun, and the band is good. Sorry for the inconvenience. WELCOME BACK TO ALPINE! WHOOO!

Bill February 29, 2012, 18:23:39

Kern, You must be a fag, cuz I hear just fags like Phish.

timmy February 29, 2012, 18:37:32

See you at Alpine.

Again?? February 29, 2012, 18:59:32

It seems to me that Phish summer tours have sadly become nothing more than a money grab for the band to quickly rake in enough money to sustain their other interests and life styles. If this were not the case, they would not continue to saturate the same areas with shows. If they were doin’ the damn thing, as it were in years past, they would, at the very least, try to hit up parts of the country that had been neglected in the last tour or two. They are simply playing in the same areas over and over and over. Seems like the band that we all love and devote so much time and money to simply does not care about letting all of us see them play. If you want to see a few Phish shows, you must either live in the Northeast or spend crazy amounts of money and vacation days just to squeeze in 1-3 shows a tour (or a year for that matter). They do not care!! I am sick of this pattern myself. I will always love their music, but I am not quite sure that “OUR INTENT IS FOR YOUR DELIGHT” is a phrase that rings true anymore. I hope that the Leg 2 dates blow this rant of mine out of the water and proves me wrong. Although, I highly doubt it.

Again?? February 29, 2012, 19:07:44

When do the Mike Gordon Band fall tour dates come out?

Kern February 29, 2012, 19:30:46

Billy boy has got that dildo deep in his ass, it must be the reason that he thinks Phish fans are fags but still posts on a Phish article.

Kern February 29, 2012, 19:31:21

hey, take the f’ing vacation days or stop your bitching

40acres February 29, 2012, 19:50:29

theoneeyedundertaker February 29, 2012, 20:43:10

I used to care but things have changed. Nowadays it’s all about the bands on their way up…not vice versa.

Bill February 29, 2012, 22:44:39
