News: Phish will play Telluride this summer

The last time Colorado saw Phish, seen here playing the fourth night of a four-night Red Rocks stand, they made some memories. The band is coming back to Colorado, this time to Telluride for a couple shows. Reverb file photo by Lindsey McWilliams.

It’s 100 percent official, phanboys and girls. Phish will play two nights at Telluride this summer.

The band just released the news in a press release this evening. The jam band will kick off the tour at Chicago’s Toyota Park on June 11, and it will include mountain plays Aug. 9-10 at Telluride Town Park. The southwestern Colorado shows — alongside three dates at Berkeley, Calif.’s, Greek Theatre Aug. 5-7 — are already widely considered the tour’s most anticipated shows by fans on message boards.

The press release quoted a Denver Post review of the band’s last Colorado play, which included four nights at Red Rocks: “(Phish) raced through some of its most technical, risky compositions, ducking and diving in four-way syncopation that illuminated the many hours the band has spent rehearsing … In fact, everything is back on the table now, with Phish’s historic four-nighter at Red Rocks already revealing a stronger-than-ever band willing to tear down and rebuild old favorites.”

    I'm surprised the news of Phish being officially announced doesn't seem to make nearly as big a splash as the mere rumor of it.
