Glens Falls, NY Institutes Phish Ticket Drawing
Glens Falls, NY has found an interesting way to deal with the influx of Phish fans looking for tickets to their upcoming concert at the Civic Center. PostStar.com reports that city officials have put together a drawing in order to prevent a mass campout in front of the venue.
Starting at midnight on Friday, August 9, everyone who is interested will be able to receive a numbered wristband. The wristband does not guarantee anything and must be worn at all times. 30 minutes before on sale begins at 10am, a number will be called. The person with that number will be given the first spot in the line, and person with the following number will be second in line, etc. For instance, if the number 20 is drawn, then the person with the number 21 wristband will be second in line. Fans must be present when the number is announced in order to enter the line.
Phish will perform at the Glens Falls Civic Center on October 23. It will be their first performance in Glens Falls, NY since Halloween 1994. Tickets to the show will also be available online starting at 10am ET tomorrow.
