PHALL Tour 2009 : Phish Unleashes The List of Fall Dates w/some Surprises

phish fall tour logo

Everyone has been waiting around to find out what was up with the Fall tour dates which, at this point, have really become much more like Winter Tour dates.  This morning, in typical Phish 3.0 fashion, the dates were introduced via a video on their website.  Most of you will be happy to know that the rumored dates that have been floating around for so many months have officially been confirmed as legit.  The real surprises are the two additional dates added to that list; one in Syracuse and another in Portland, MaineThe Portland show is scheduled to take place at the Cumberland County Civic Center and will easily be one of the hardest tickets of the year to get your hands on.  The “C4“, as I have just decided to start referring to it as, is listed with a capacity of only 9,000.  What’s more is that the Syracuse show will be held at War Memorial at Oncenter (capacity 8,000).   ZOIKS!

I’m sure that there are going to be plenty of “I told you so you stupid mother fuckers” being delivered, today.  Someone’s probably even going to end up getting punched in the skull somewhere.  The speculation and debate around the band’s every upcoming move has been at an all-time high and can cause a great deal of animosity between their arguing fans.  This isn’t necessarily anything new but, if one band has really harnessed the power of the internet, it’s PHISH.  Plus, we still feel forced to write something and feed into this shit too because , with our recent post about the speculated dates, it seemed irresponsible not to do a follow up.

Here are the tour dates with the dates that they go on sale listed beside them:

And everything took place here, in this room... but it wasn't actually here... it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle."
