So, this is most definately a big deal. Just kinda wondering what type of crowd. Not trying to burst anyone's bubble, but scalpers are gonna be all over this one. Then you get a bunch of trustafarians. Well all I can say is I hope only the chillest kids get these tickets, and not a damn person wants to flip em.

I was waiting to see the "I know people inside Phish" post. Not that rp1guy is "that guy", but for some reason, I have met more people who know Phish or someone within the organization than any band out there.

And not that his bit about Jon and Page. Same as The Who did for Entwistle.

I just ope the forget about Round Room and Undermine, put up some new material and kick some folks in the nuts.

its hard to say, but i think some peeps have a point regarding the money subject.. i hope this isn't just a another 1.5-2 year thing, and the boys stick it out for the long haul and actually tour like they fucking used to.. announcing 3 shows is sweet, but im hopin to see some real touring going on, if not then it really is just a 'quick fix' for the boys.

Wow Langerado haters abound, get over it. I will let the band and the scene knock the rust off, and catch them after a few months of practice, and once the first timers all pop their cherries. I am guessing they are going to do 2004 style mini runs here and there, and maybe a Coventry re-do?

They might as well just call off that festival right now. Now the serious talks about Phish at Rothbury can start unlike the bogus reunion rumors people were spoutin last year! jnsol - keep to yourself next time before you go and try spout nonsense like that

13,800 capacity means a lot of sad, older heads that are gonna miss out on the show for a band they devoted more years of their life to then those drugged up scenesters that fell off bisco tour have even lived. Thank god Coventry wasnt the end! No band, not even phish, is allowed to butcher the last song they ever played. As cheesy as it is, I bet the open it up with YEM.

I hope for those of you that bought plane tickets and made hotel reservations that those are refundable, because there are going to be hundreds of thousands of people trying to get these 13,400 tickets. Good Luck to all. - YEM to open, it has to be, they opened with it after the last hiatus, and with Trey's comment about "giving his left nut" to play YEM once a day for the rest of this life, how can it not be, although a little cliche...

"To all the young kids coming for the drugs and the scene. STAY HOME!"

I totally agree, but I must point out that there a many young people who actually do LOVE Phish and haven't been able to see them. Aafter I heard my first phish song in a friends car , AC/DC Bag, I began listening to them religiously. I watched all the DVD's, listened to a lot of AUD recordings and some SBD's and all I did for months was immerse myself in the music of Phish. to a point of obsession. Phish's improvisation got me really interested in watching and listening to bands that put on a damn good live show because of their improvisational skills. I have seen a fair amount of shows considering that I live in a town with a terrible music scene. However, I NEVER GOT TO SEE PHISH. I am not going to a Phish show looking for drugs, I can get them at home if and when I want, or just go to any "jamband" show if that was the reason I wanted to go. I would enjoy Phish even if I was sober (wouldn't be though), but my point is that any young person at the show shouldn't be written off a some sort of "Poser" because you never know that young kid may know more about Phish than many of the people there. However, I do think that ANYONE, REGARDLESS OF AGE, who wants to go to a Phish show so they can get as fucked up as they possibly can and not for the amazing music, should not even THINK about going.

PHISH RETURNS! GOOD LUCK TO EVERY PHAN WHO NEEDS A MIRACLE! I don't know if I can wait until 2009 for a release of more tour dates!

I live about 30 minutes from Hampton and the weather is pretty unpredictable that time of year in VA. It could be 70 or 40 degrees. Most likely it will be mid 50s and you could camp if you pack warmly. such an awesome venue, can't wait.

When march 6,7,8th 2009 rolls around, we'll see who misses and is at home crying over the sick setlists that they missed out on being such a downer! Just keep talking shit and spreading negative vibes, if thats all you got going for you after an announcement like this...you sir/ma'am are a total douche!

I don't know what to say, I'm torn between my love of the music, my loathing of what the scene has become and the Depression this country is in. Is it still worth it? This reunion stinks like money, money needed. I loved and love Phish's music, but I guess I always wanted it to get smarter, or more grown up as I was getting older. I live in ATL and I want to smack about 80% of the people I see at shows. No respect for the band, no respect for cops, no respect for the city they are in or the people that live there, and certainly no respect for themselves. It's pretty sad, I wouldn't want to tour for those crowds unless I needed the money. Trey has made an ass out of himself on and off stage, Gordo has had some success, but that's it. I think they owe everyone money and don't want to do what the rest of us do; real work. I want to spend my hard earned money seeing bands that want to play for themselves, not for alimony, divorce settlements, drugs, vacation houses, etc... I want to believe this is genuine friends, wanting to rekindle the old flame and I hope that's what it is, but I'll see if they are still touring in 2-3 years.

deadheadjim....be that person you speak of.......be the one that is respectful, that's all you can do.....and i seriously doubt this is "for the money".....sure they charge money for tickets, but if you can't see the excitement in trey and know this is originating from his heart then you shouldn't go and end up disappointed and therefor have a negative vibe......i will have to get flights from az, take off work for 1-2 days on both ends of the trip, and go in the hole several hndred for my wife and i to go....but phish being back....priceless

Despite what everyone is saying, ("they need the money", "this will never last", the scene is horrible") can't we all just agree that the music is incredible and we would like it very much if they were to put on a spectacular show. Am I right? Let's just hope for that.

seriously great news. The last few years really have had a void without the potential summer or fall tour. Now it's as if a huge weight has been lifted and we can listen to them and have hope of seeing them again.

Also, there has been a lot of talk about telling people to STAY HOME. Seriously, that is going to do no good. There will be plenty of rich kids there for the scene, as there always are, but lets just focus on meeting up with old phriends and trying to find a way into the show. You can't expect anything but a shit show down there, and I have to say I'm excited.

Hopefully they tour at the same time as the Dead. Phish tour tends to soak up the bad elements leaving the Dead scene less polluted. Don't get me wrong, I'm starting to get my Phish love back big time. I'm sure the shows will be fun, as they haven't played together in a while and things will be fresh again.

But Beware....things have changed in four years. A new generation that has never seen them will be rushing to be seen at what they consider the "hip" concert, looking for all their newly "hip" friends from high school. I fear there will be much talking and no paid attention from this new crowd. We've already experienced this at smaller local shows in town. Back in the day, I hardly ever (never?) had to put my finger to my lips and signal talking folks to please be quiet. However, nowadays, you ask someone who has made it all the way up front, only to yell over the music to please be quiet and they look at you like they want to fight. Then they start talking louder!? Disrespect for the music and musicians is now the norm amoung most of the younger crowd. I've curtailed a lot of my show attendance due to this. I go to hear the music like always, but it seems I spend most of the show looking to get away from people talking about the most inane shit.

I'm excited at the news of the reunion for sure. the shows are a good lot of time in the future, so it's reasonable to expect that they intend to get much practice before they play out in public. Just a tad weary about the make-up of the crowd this time around. heres hoping the newbees really pay attention and respect yo...peace!

fear not the 15 year old newbies....geez...i've never had a bad time at a phish show. It didnt matter if the people next to me were 15,21,42,54,or 65...i've never had a bad time at a phish show. To say that you don't want to go because of some high school kids is pathetic. Wern't you 15 or 16 once too? Its a free country and it states "all ages".

I started to see phish when i was 15 back in 1994. I never encountered a person who treated me badly because of my age. I grew up with phish, why not give some young-un that chance too? Its our job to show them hows its properly done. You are the vibe YOU put out....I actually wish i were next to some 15/16 year olds because if they are anything like me at that age, I know they are ready and willing to THROW THE FUCK down!

All of these distractions/bad shit about the scene...never happened to me. Its all how you play it. I just go to hang out with my best friends and to get lost in the music. If you there for the wrong reasons, chances are you'll encounter some bullshit...thats life.

NO EXCUSES PEOPLE! did you forget what this band is capable of? Were you at big cypress? NO EXCUSES...this is PHISH!

fut...that has to be the truest thing you've ever posted in these interactions....at least the thing i can relate to the most........you ask someone to stop talking during the show and bammo YOU're the bad guy....that's just not right.....i've found all ages show though to be the best, at our largest local venue they split the place to have a "bar side" and an under 21 side......i always go to the under 21 side because there is 1) no spilled beer to dance in 2) respectful dance space not intruded upon all the way to the front and 3) no talking during the music.....of course that is a generalization, but one that is 95% true...once they hit that alcohol stage the inhibitons (manners) fly right out the window....

.

but who cares really, because PHISH IS BACK!!!!!

(hopefully though people will be respectful, the more of us there are the better off the crowd will be....by definition)

As far as scoring tickets I will say I've had more luck with Phish Ticketing than TM. Last hiatus I got only 2 tix out of the first four shows. In the height of people offering me lots of cash I said no and took a friend of mine in. It was a hard decision to come by but I feel I did the right thing...karma is beautiful because I have no doubt that I'll be in the building one night at least.

didn't say I wouldn't go. Just commenting on the fact of the scene today. Back in 94/95 Phish weren't "hip". They were still off the radar so there weren't a whole lot of kids just going for the drugs and the scene. Only those heads which knew of Phish were going to the shows. I never had any problems at Phish shows, always had a great time. I'm just saying that it might not be the same crowd this time out.

things change....thats just life. Phish is one of the biggest bands in the world, they are bound to attract more than the hardcore phan. It is ok to have concerns about the scene. I know i saw it decline with my own eyes from like 95-2000 and beyond. it was definately a downward progression towards the more negative aspects(people just showing up for the lot scene and causing trouble). Just know what your going for and you'll stay away from the negative.

Futhepharmer...i agree with you about the people who show up just for the wrong reasons. And i totally see it as an opportunity for the bad element(if they are still in fact around)to take advantage of all the new comers. If anything i'm embarassed about the negative part of the scene and i do in fact hope that those people have moved on in the past 4 years. When it comes down to it, we can only watchout ourselves. When it comes to others just remember the golden rule...do unto others ect ect...

Everyone has to realize that we were all at one point new comers to this. I'm praying that people have matured in the past 4 years and the shady element is gone for good. But i know that is probably not the case....all that matters to me is getting inside that coliseum and the music that is played...everything else is topical.

funkyMOFO, ye of little faith! I happen to enjoy seeing Phish bust out fresh tracks for the first time; two of my favorite shows were in Dublin in '97, when they debuted a ton of new material from what would be "Story of the Ghost" and "Farmhouse". I really like "Alaska", the new Trey/Tom tune, and hope they play that and a bunch of new killer tunes in 2009! Don't get me wrong, I want to hear a killer Fluffhead as much as they next pre-hiautus fan, so hopefully they bust it ALL out! Especially "Will it go 'Round in Circles" and "Back at the Chicken Shack." Bring back that '99 shit!

Welcome to the "Post Touch Of Grey" part of Phish's carrier. The crowds get 2 or 3x bigger than they we're. A good amount of them are complete assholes that will eventually start crashing gates and causing big trouble, mark my words, I saw it happen with The Grateful Dead and these are the exact same ingredients. I can't blame them for wanting to make a boat load of cash but this is going to get nuts.

after some long drawn out tours in 03 and 04 we all said give it 5 years, and they will be back. How right we were, I feel what everyone has been saying though. No disrespect if you've never seen phish before but I almost wish you had to have already ordered tix from phish.com to get tix to hampton. i mean this is huge and lots of kids who have heard us talk about how sick phish shows always were will no doubt want to be a part of it. Best of luck to everyone, prob see you on the lot regardless of having a ticket or not, hose of us that know what its liek to be on tour know that sometimes it's sweet to even be standing outside and not be able to get in. Not too many fans of other bands could say that. Much love and respect to Fish, Trey, Page, and Mike. Respect to all the glides!!!!!!!!

all of this bs towards "newbs" is ridiculous. It was the same way in 1995 when I started seeing phish and it was probably the same in 1990 when those who saw phish in the 80s spoke of those "glory days". It was the same in the dead scene as well. The idea that people want to assert some sort of ownership over a band that sells out arenas or sells 70,000+ tix to a festival is ludicrous. I'm glad for the younger fans that are getting a chance to experience what we have for many years.

Stev-o,

Dont worry aobut what SCIFreak says. That kid has never been to a Phish show either and has nothing of worth to say on any topic. I've seen Phish 12 times since 98, bring the newbs on the vets will show you how this scence should work! WOOKIE FREE FLOATING IN THE BLIMP OF LIFE!

Thank you for that eloquent dose of reality. I feel the same way. I'd much rather groove with some positive minded NEWBS who appreciate the music than some old, jaded, selfish PHANS from the past. I've seen Phish tons of times, and I always resented the people who had the phishier-than-though chip on their shoulder. Where's the love?

I have over 700 live Phish songs on my computer, I listen to Phish almost exclusively throughout the day, I've memorized lyrics and solos to the point where I can pretty much know what year/show a song is from, and I love Phish because their music's energy is the happiest there ever was... But I've never seen Phish. Just because some people haven't seen Phish doesn't mean they're there for the wrong reasons. If you're (hopefully) going, go to love the music... Fuck the people who go for the scene and the drugs. They don't know what they're missing. Just ignore that shit and get on with your life; it's not worth the energy to dwell on. I love Phish, and I hope that I'll have the opportunity to tour with them at some point. All you older phans... Don't hate on younger phans... Some of us love Phish for all of the right reasons.

We all started off as tadpoles in the pond that turned into a lake which flooded and turned into the ocean that is now the Phish community. To all the newbs: Dont worry about the old folks (myself included). The trash talking oldies (myself not included) can stay in a bad mood forever. My mood will not be determined by someone else. Especially if that someone is shit talking some kid that has the glorious opportunity to see this band for the first time. I wish I could see this band for the first time everytime. The first show is always the most memorable. Lets make it a good one for all those young newbs. That way they will make it good for the next batch of newbs. And then the whole scene will benefit.

"True and Fascinating stories of kindness and compassion from Coventry '04"

1. The guy who got his foot stuck in one of the pallets they put to walk over the mud and evryone laughing and trampling him as he called for help.

2. the girl worried that her botfriend was OD'ing in the tent and noone batting an eyelash

3. the three girls whose car was stuck in the mud ankle deep trying to push it out as car after car after car of able bodied dudes drove by only to have to find another car of women who were stuck and helping each other out.

4. the nice gift of someone having shat into a tuperware container, then putting it in a bag outside someones car.....awesome.

Have to admit, I wasn't there, but these tales were told to me by my fiance who went(we were still dating at this point) and was one of said 3 women in the car and whose friend happened to be the guy who got his foot stuck in the pallet.

I had stopped going to Phish at this point as they were getting sloppy and there was much better music to see to. But this just illustrates the downward spiral trend of the quality of the Phish community. Do I think their reunion will reinvigorate the scene? absolutely. But I'm concerned about the dwindeling love and kindness that we show to each other anymore.

not trying to bum anyone out. I hope everyone who never got the chance to see them get tickets and have the time of their lives. Just trying to inform so you all can make informed decisions.

futhepharmer - you really are an ass hole. Who cares about young fans going to shows - I went through this when they came back from the first hiatus for nye 02 and all the 03-04 runs. what the fuck difference does it make if they want to get to see phish for the first time. who are you to judge? I'm sure the whole time you've been going to shows you never ate some drugs and got all fucked up - everyone has. When you started seeing the Dead I guarantee that some older dick thought you were a little punk because you haven't been to 50 shows. And you probably thought that they were assholes, just like the youngins here think you're a dick now.

So which Phish will show up...well, it won't be the 1993 version, the funky 1997 version, and hopefully like no other version before. These guys have evolved musically without each other for 4+ years and I can't help but think that's a GOOD thing. Can't wait to see/hear/feel what a difference time has made. Kinda cool that my first shows were the Roxy shows in ATL in 1993, and 16 years later, I'm still stoked as hell for this. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, ya know? Bring all fans, old and new...just respect and love the people around you, and it's all good!

Hold You guys have been talking about going for the music, futurepharmer stopped going to the music once he didn't think it was all that great anymore, he made the ultimate sacrafice, to give up something close and familiar and try something new, for the music. Now personally all this nonsense about young kids doing drugs, and stuff is kinda of just hypocricy; i'm sure no one else ever did drugs that saw phish, i mean its kind of stupid to hate on people for doing drugs when the band (trey) was doing more than everyone else, this scene was pretty much built on drugs and music, both were present and essential in the formation of what you guys call "the scene," chill out and let everyone do what they want as long as it doesn't interfere with you

I feel sorry for the high school kids these days. The reason things are getting so fucked up is the fact that none of these kids, 4 years worth, didn't have something positive like phish to turn to. What do they have? Good Charlotte, hannah montanna, and 50 cent??? The fact that phish is coming back will have a positive effect on the nation's young and the entire phish scene in general. Maybe it is time for all the old ass haters to move on. Some new blood might actually make things better, not worse. I'd rather have 5000 newbie kids at a show than the junky hood rats begging for change and stealing shit from the parked cars of people who actually like phish are inside a venue.

Before every tour there is always this garbage talk about the scene. In my experience, its usually just internet haters who have nothing better to do than step on a good vibe.

I saw my first show in 1989 in a bar in Rochester NY on a stage the size of a large folding table. So seeing as how I would be considered one of the old Phucks I have to say that I welcome all newbies. The experience at a Phish show is like no other you will ever experience in your life. The story of Trey on stage in Chicago when he closed his eyes and he visualized the beams of Coruda shooting through his body while in the middle of a crazy jam is the feeling we all want to feel. Young or old everyone deserves the right to feel the musical bliss of a Phish journey. I hope all of you that have never seen them gets the chance. It is a life changing experience just as it was for me in 89. Opener - Back on the train, although the back in black shout out is rather interesting.

It is interesting to read all the hate for newbies on here. I understand that some people don't know much about the music or scene and can fuck it up by getting too out there and acting out. What is interesting to me is acting like all new people are bad. When I first started going to Phish shows, I had hardly listened to any of there songs, same for Cheese, and the Dead, and all the wonderful bands today, like Railroad, Tea Leaf Green, or Flowmotion. I went because I heard the music was great, the scene was great, and live shows were the way to go. I have never felt bad for seeing a show before I knew the band well, in fact if I didn't I wouldn't even know about how good Phish is, because to me it is all about the live show. I welcome everyone, and all that is needed is acceptance, love and generosity for the scene to florish without bad energy. Youth can be good or bad, lets let time tell. For example, at Summer Meltdown this year there was a lot of youth that were partying at a music festival for the first time, and all I felt was good energy from all the young people that couldn't believe there even was a scene this cool and loving.

never did any drugs at phish never drank at phish picked up your garbage showed those who had lost it to the medi folks never went to a show without tickets never had to deal with people talking because myself and the 30-40 folks I hang with came for the music we talk before the show during setbreak and after the show. Things change ( around 98 ) for some reason people started taking pharmies (drooling blank stare ) drinking like they were at a frat party and trashing venues as for myself I'll be the same old hippie cleaning up hoping those who follow behind will pick up on the vibe of what this phish thing is all about and no I'm not one of those peace love type hippies I miss secret language big ball jams and of course duh!!! and one last thing I've met alot of young kids who got it and came for the MUSIC and we had a good time so let us return to the MOTHERSHIP
