Phish Summer Tour Dates Confirmed

Phish have announced their 2013 summer tour dates. The band will kick things off at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, ME (7/3) before heading to a three night run at Saratoga Springs Performing Arts Center (7/5-7/7). They will then play one-off shows in Toronto, ONT (7/9) , Holmdel, NJ (7/10) and Wantagh, NY (7/12) before back-to-back two-night runs in Columbia, MD (7/13 & 7/14) and Alpharetta, GA (7/16 & 7/17). Next, Phish will make their way to Chicago for three-nights at the Charter One Pavillion (7/19-7/21), followed by two shows at The Gorge in George, WA (7/26 & 7/27). After that, the band will play two nights in Stateline, NV (7/30 & 7/31) before a three night run in San Francisco (8/2-8/4). The band will then play a one-off gig at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (8/5) before closing out the tour with three nights at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO (8/30-9/1). These will be Phish’s first shows at the recently revamped Charter One Pavillion, and Toronto will be The Vermont Quartet’s first Canadian—or international—date since 2000.

Fans will be able to request up to four tickets per show in a pre-sale lottery until Sunday, March 24 at 11:59pm EST. Tickets for the Toronto shows must be requested separately. Tickets will be available to the general public on March 30.

No Deer Creek, No Alpine Valley…gone are the days.

liz March 12, 2013, 16:36:52

northerly island will be sweet though! small and intimate!

boo March 12, 2013, 16:38:43

Gone are the days…like 2012? Lol

I was there for Furthur and the lines were deep, trailer bathrooms disgusting and they ran out of water with no fresh fountains anywhere. Unless they fix the issue, I bet it’s going to be pretty wild. May hit the GA shows.

I really wanted an outdoor SF show at the new venue on the pier. Tix would have been tough, but worth it. Bill G is always a good time though.

Capt. Willard March 12, 2013, 16:43:32

I love the smell of tour in the morning. Smells like Victory!!

timmy March 12, 2013, 16:47:15

Absolutely hilarious “Apocalypse Now” skit. Fish gives an Academy Award performance in my book. Martin Sheen would be proud. You know he’s a Phan….well, a Deadhead for sure. See you at Dick’s.

mj March 12, 2013, 16:47:18

Nice boxers

Winner March 12, 2013, 16:48:12

Hahaha yes!!!! Now all the phans on the East Coast know how we have felt every summer. West Coast love!! Come on over guys, we’ll show you where you go to see Phish ( The Gorge)!!

texwinn March 13, 2013, 00:50:10

chicago venue is gettn renovated and the capacity is goin to be well above the old number…..All in all these dates dont do much for me….but any Phish is GREAT PHISH

Vinnie Bagodonits March 13, 2013, 08:27:50

Phish and Pearl Jam both in Chicago on July 19. Could this be the ever elusive Stone/Cactus collaboration we’ve all been waiting for?

Natron888 March 13, 2013, 10:59:04

Hell yes West Coast Hollywood bowl show!! two years ago was insane highly recommend that one and number two this leaves plenty of room for a Halloween show !!!!! OKC or STL KC? It would surprise us all- ( and a good old Phish fall tour all indoors ( LIGHTS) ( SOUND IS THE BEST INDOORS) – nothin like a PHISH PHALL TOUR) cool weather bring it on boys lets party 2013 like it was 1995-
HEADLINES: phish’s Chicago. Halloween quadraphonia show was Only topped by 2013 saint Lois ( Dark side of the moon ) in the middle of arguably phish’s best summer and fall tour ever. They keep getting better – they’re just getting started.

Interesting gap for most of August… holding back the festival announcement????

fluff March 13, 2013, 15:07:17

This guy doesn’t “get” Phish

Laura dupuy March 13, 2013, 21:42:53

Where is the old school love? Southeast? Deer creek? Alpine valley, wtf! Why! Why!? You must rectify!

JoeMoeTokyo March 14, 2013, 00:41:30

And it’s a very late starting tour. Last year’s started a month earlier. What are they doing in June? There’s got to be something planned for the 30th anniversary.

howie feltersnatch March 14, 2013, 19:17:05

Well this tour blows, guess I’m gonna see Cheese this summer…..

kevin p. March 15, 2013, 14:22:38

The Gorge in late July…brutally hot.

Not really.... March 15, 2013, 17:06:14

It’s really not all that brutal at the Gorge, especially later in the evening at show time, and believe me when I say that once the sun goes down you’ll want to have an extra layer handy. It can drop a good bit down on the Columbia River Gorge. BUUUT, it’s also one of the best ever venues to see Phish, and they have yet to disappoint out here that I’ve seen, so it makes all the daytime heat beyond worth it once it subsides and the music starts. Besides, Deer Creek last year was miserable 110 degree heat the first day, followed by stormy and windy downpour for a while the second day, and it was STILL well worth it. If a little heat is a deciding factor in seeing the greatest band at the greatest venue then perhaps you should just couch tour it from now on….

East coast fall and New Years ladies.

erick March 22, 2013, 15:39:29

Yes they did just approve of a 3 million dollar renovation in Chicago at the charter one pavilion. Just yesterday in fact. It will boost the capacity up to 30k or so and actually the plan will include movement of the stage addition of stands seating, lawn seating, and new sound system from what ive read. Another note phish has never played there and by the looks of the man made peninsula once an air strip now a park with many different eco systems its going to be an awesome setting for the best band on the Planet to play their asses off!! I will not miss these shows and you shouldnt either or will be wishing you hadn’t!

punchreba June 13, 2013, 16:41:49

Phish dissapointed at the Gorge in 03

Phish2112Rush July 2, 2013, 00:53:02

So disappointed about no Deer Creek I was so looking forward to it because I can’t make the others this summer. Does anyone know when they will post Fall tour.? And does anyone know if they would do Deer creek then in the fall? Also does anyone have ideas of New Years show location???
