Phish is, without a doubt, one of the best jam bands of recent history. Following in the Grateful Dead's footprints as an improvisation rock band, Phish's music is influenced by a wide variety of genres including rock, jazz, reggae, bluegrass, and even barbershop quartet.
In 2009, Phish began touring again after a 4.5 year hiatus. Since then, they have played multiple tours and even headlined their own festival, Festival 8. In early 2011, Phish announced a 30-stop tour and even more recently, a 3-day festival in Watkins Glen, NY called, Super Ball IX.
In late May, Phish opened up their tour with a 3-night sold out run at the historic Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (pictured below), which is at the original site of Woodstock '69. Phish is now 4 weeks into their summer tour and they have already sold out 40% (12 of 30) of their shows. Other notable venues that Phish is playing this summer include; Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA, and the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, CA.
