Phish will return to Rochester, NY’s Blue Cross Arena on October 22. Ticketmaster.com is now listing the show, with a public onsale time of 10am on August 10. The date is inline with a series of rumored gigs which have circulated over the past few days. Those dates also include a semi-confirmed stop at Glens Falls, NY’s Glens Falls Civic Center on October 23 as well as a heavily rumored three-night run at Atlantic City, NJ’s Boardwalk Hall from October 31-November 2.
Phish played the Blue Cross Arena on two separate, well-received occasions. Their first stop at the venue, on December 11, 1997, featured Phish’s debut of the Ween classic “Roses Are Free” and was documented in Bittersweet Motel. The group’s second stop at the arena, on December 5, 1999, featured a particularly memorable second set (as well as the debut of the short-lived Phish ditty “Jennifer Dances”).
Phish are expected to return to several historic venues during their fall tour, which will build toward the band’s 30th anniversary on December 2.
