Phish Go 3-D: Festival 8 Concert Doc Hits Theaters April 20th

March 25, 2010 11:26 AM ET

Last October, Phish descended on Indio, California, for the three-day Festival 8, a Halloween concert event that featured the band covering the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street in its entirety. Missed out? No worries. On April 20th, Festival 8 will hit the big screen in 3-D, Avatar fashion. (Check out the 2-D trailer above.) Tickets for Phish 3D go on sale tomorrow, March 26th at the film's official website. (March 26th, incidentally, is also the last day to request tickets through the band's site for their recently announced summer tour.)

On April 20th, fans in Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Washington, D.C., Raleigh and, of course, Phish's native Burlington, Vermont, will be the first to experience Phish 3D, with a rollout to other markets starting April 30th. Phish 3D will only be in theaters for one week.

The film will mark Phish's first time on the big screen since 2004, when the band offered a live simulcast of their Coventry Festival — the group's final show before taking a five-year break.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
