UPDATE: Phish have added five July shows before their 13-night MSG stint. See dates below.
Phish announced an unprecedented 13-night stint at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, scheduled between Friday, July 21st and Sunday, August 6th. After that massive run, dubbed “The Baker’s Dozen,” the iconic jam band will have performed 52 times at the venue since December 1994. Only a handful of acts – including Elton John, Billy Joel and the Grateful Dead – have played the venue over 50 times.
“Baker’s Dozen” tickets will be available for individual nights and as one 13-show package (at the price of 12). An online ticket request period is underway now through Sunday, February 12th at 11:59 p.m. ET via the Phish Tickets site. Remaining tickets go on sale to the general public starting February 17th at noon ET. In keeping with the band’s recent MSG shows, all floor tickets will be honored as General Admission.
The group recently performed a series of four shows at Madison Square Garden to close out 2016.
Last year, the band released their acclaimed 13th studio album, Big Boat, produced by Bob Ezrin. Guitarist Trey Anastasio told Rolling Stone that the veteran producer pushed the band out of their “democratic” comfort zone. “Everyone is so conscious of each other’s feelings,” he said. “Bob would say, ‘I know you’re trying to even-steven here, but I would like to suggest that this song isn’t up to snuff,'” says Anastasio. “It kind of took the pressure off.”
Phish will not tour this fall, but Anastasio will launch a solo trek April 14th in Port Chester, New York.
