It's official: After recently reuniting to perform at a friend's wedding, Phish will make their return to a larger stage next year when they invade the Hampton Coliseum in Virginia for a trio of shows on March 6-8th, 2009. The concerts will be the band's first public show since calling it quits four years ago. The announcement was made in a video posted last night on Phish's official Website depicting an artist painting the iconic, multi-colored Hampton Coliseum, the scene of the Phish live album Hampton Comes Alive. Recently, both guitarist Trey Anastasio and bassist Mike Gordon told Rolling Stone that they hoped the band would reunite in the near future. The band also revealed additional shows for 2009 are planned, but no specifics have been announced yet. Fans can go to the Phish site now to enter into a drawing for Hampton tickets now, while Ticketmaster will begin selling tickets on October 18th.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
