2003 performance to air on PBS

July 14, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Phish will have their first full-length television special, when a 2003 performance airs August 2nd on PBS.

It: A Phish Concert Special will include ninety minutes of footage from the group's two-day It Festival at the Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, Maine, which drew more than 60,000 fans. In addition to performance footage (the group played three sets each day), the show will include interviews with the band, which plans to break up next month.

The group decided in late May to call it quits after nearly twenty years playing together. After releasing a new studio set, Undermind, on June 15th, Phish initiated what will be their final tour. The group will wrap the tour with the two-day Coventry Festival on August 14th and 15th in their home state of Vermont.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
