Phish – Back to the future?
To be taken with a mountain sized grain of salt:
According to a well connected Merry Swankster source, Phish will announce later today a three night run of reunion shows at Virginia’s UFO shaped Hampton Coliseum next March. Hampton Coliseum was also the site of the 2002/2003 hiatus breaking tour that saw the band perform a triumphant MSG New Years show followed by a trio of Hampton dates.
Hampton was also the site of the November 1998 shows that would eventually be released in box set form commemorating a weekend of legendary, but typical hijinks from the free spirited band. Highlighted by a series of off-beat covers, the shows included Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll, Pt. 2″, Ween’s “Roses Are Free”, Beasties’ “Sabotage”, Chumbawumba’s “Tubthumping”, and “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” by Will Smith.
Update 12:32am ET:
Well, the day is obviously over and nothing happened. I defer to this.
Update 3:41am ET
Its official. Phish will play 3 shows at Hampton Coliseum on March 6, 7, 8 per Phish.com.
