I hope by next fall phil will play some more shows, I wish him and trey would team up again, but i doubt that will ever happen again. Phil needs to play in Miami and if he played at the chicago theatre that would be awesome

Hope this means Phil & Friends will do a Fall Tour that will once again include Vegoose! Would love to see Ratdog there if not. We need some Dead in Vegas for Vegoose this year. Can't believe the Austin neglect, I LOVE that city and the music scene there, such great music fans, such a fun town.

Welcome back Phil, glad your health is tour-worthy, now get the f**k back to work.

chilly 420, im sort of sad to say if your already going to the big SCI shin-dig like i am then you should prolly just stick with that.

Id rather see Lesh over SCI any day of the week, but trying to do both events with this late notice is just going to be too much of a hastle esp if your in a huge group like i am.

I really wonder why he decided to do it this of all weekends. it really weeds out anyone who just likes jambands and leavs only the real philheads, i suppose.

I guess if i wasnt rollin with such a huge crew id be all for leaving sci a lil early to see phil.

seeing phil at the indi would be unreal, thats for sure

Scofield is the shiz - but agree w/ Miles that Green rocks! Regardless, fools would miss this show for SCI - just a personal opinion!

Man I wish these tickets would go on sale already!!
15MIN!! I can't wait....
Sco rocks but I take my phil how ever it is given....
I think having it the same night as SCI is a great idea it will help keep the majority of the crowd away.

Good to see Phil's feeling better. He has healing vibes built in him :)

I'd love to see a good Phil run this Fall. Possible other headliner at Goose 3??? I'd be way down

SCI or Phil Lesh? What to do? Lets see Phil is awesome and so is his band, and they play some of the greatest rock tunes ever written, and SCI is just a bunch of hacks riding the coattails of the decayed Phish caravan playing the same bluegrass techno crap over and over. Hmmm, what to do?

c'mon they're both great(SCI & P&F) -- it's a pleasure to have such choices in life -- unlike our choices for radio once the gov't's sponsored ruling in the riaa's favor to shutdown internet radio as we now know it.

Give me a break, "Phil is stealing thunder"? Phil IS the thunder. Every time he does an East Coast Tour the blogs light up with "Why doesn't Phil play on The Bay?" Now he is and people bitch. Unforkingbelieveable. Plus the guy is battling a life threatening illness, AGAIN.
