Phish back at SPAC this July

phish spac 2009

Phish at SPAC in 2009.

Phish will be playing three shows at SPAC this summer -- July 6, 7, 8 -- Live Nation announced today. Tickets go on sale March 16 at noon. They're $45 (lawn) and $60 (inside).

The SPAC shows are part of a summer tour that starts at Bonnaroo in Worcester, Massachusetts in June. As currently posted, Saratoga is the last stop on the tour. The band last played SPAC in 2010, for two nights.

Dave Matthews Band: It's returning to SPAC this summer, too -- June 8 and 9. Tickets are on sale March 9.

Their tour actually start before Bonnaroo at nearby Worcester, MA. Three nights at SPAC! I don't think they've ever played more than 2 nights there.

Yay! I love it when the shows are right down the road. :)

(1) We're lucky to have a place a cool as SPAC in the region.

(2) Phish fans are lucky that the band seems to hold our area in high regard, as they have played so many shows here over the years (and many of those have been stand-out performances for one reason or another.)

(3) The video announcement of the tour is cool:

Three nights> They might get around to playing, what, three whole songs!

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
