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.
