Phish summer tour rumors are kind of like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man at the end of Ghostbusters. If you imagine them, they will appear. And despite rumors sparked by Trey at Riviera Maya that “the band wouldn’t be be playing shows for a while” (while they work on a new album), speculation that there’d be no summer tour appears to be out the window as fans are snatching up hotels all along the Eastern Seaboard.
The current and most popular summer tour dates come from Phish Rumors (who knows where they find them), and besides a one-off St. Louis date seem pretty legit. Old favorites include a July 1-3 SPAC run, two nights at the Gorge, and a run of shows in California including three nights at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Some new, notable stops are two nights at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY, and the previously rumored June 24 and 25 at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
As fans anxiously await an announcement from their favorite Vermont foursome, one thing is for sure: check the itinerary and start booking some refundable hotels. It’s on!!!
