This video just popped up on Phish.com and Youtube today. Phish has finally announced their reunion to take place at Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia on March 6, 7 and 8, 2009. Obviously, Hampton has been one of the more popular venues for the band to perform at over the years. If you have never been to a show at Hampton or seen a photo of the venue, it looks it looks somewhat like an extra-terrestrial space craft, complete with alternating multi-color lights. If it’s anything like the last time I saw the guys perform out there, you can get a slew of velour hoodlum gear just blocks away from the venue in shopping centers that house a TJ MAX, ROSS, and a MARSHALLS (that’s right all 3)! Get your budget gangsta on and pop down to the lot.
Of course, this was only a matter of time and more tour dates will be announced shortly. It appears that there will be a summer tour which will end with another classic festival in the North East.
For now, there is a week long ticket request lottery that closes on the 8th. You can attempt to purchase some by clicking here.
Tickets open to the rest of the public on the 10th.
Good luck ya’lls!
