Phish Plan Fall Tour, Halloween Blowout

Band promise "very special" holiday concert -- likely a cover of another band's classic album

August 24, 2010 5:03 PM ET

Phish just wrapped their summer tour last week, but they're already announcing fall concert dates. After headlining Austin City Limits on October 8, they'll continue the tour with a three-night stand at Broomfield, Colorado's 1stBank Center, then work their way east, winding things up with three nights at Atlantic City, New Jersey's Boardwalk Hall. The band will play their final, "very special" show on Halloween, where tradition suggests that they'll wear a "musical costume" – i.e., perform another artist's album in its entirety. On past Halloweens they've covered the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St., the Beatles' White Album, the Velvet Underground's Loaded, Talking Heads' Remain in Light and the Who's Quadrophenia. Watch Phish's tour announcement video above, and visit Phish.com for ticket information.

Song Stories

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
