Phish to play tour Opener at Fenway Park?

Posted in boston, phish by huckd on March 14, 2009

pahkInformation from a Live Nation source is slipping through the cracks about a possible Phish summer tour opener at Fenway Park on May 31. Their first confirmed gig of the summer tour, as it stands now, is June 4 at the Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY.

The Dave Matthews Band will be performing two shows at Fenway on May 29 and 30, so Fenway will be in “concert-mode.”

For the rest of Phish’s 2009 summer tour dates, go here.

The reviews are streaming in and all sound positive: the boys are firing on all four cylinders like never before. Trey sounds more focused and clear-headed that he has in years.

I’ll let the music do the talking. Head over to LivePhish where you can have yourself a pristine copy of last night’s show–in all it’s soundboard glory–for free, courtesy of the band. The mp3 files are encoded in 256kps, while lossless FLACs are available for $12.95.
