While many are praying Phish returns to the stage after MSG for a tour in February or March, the hopes of many seem to be in danger of being squashed with the recent release of four dates on TreyAnastasio.com. Starting on February 9, ending on March 10, and with a stop on Valentine’s day, Trey will sit in with various cities’ symphonies. While this doesn’t technically rule out a Phish tour in the first three months of 2012, it makes it more unlikely. If more dates are released (and there very well may), it looks like we’ll be waiting until summer to see Phish again.
While Trey will be playing in some beautiful venues, including the the relatively new Walt Disney Hall that holds just 2,250 people, and the music is sure to be gorgeous (as it always is when he plays in a classical setting), all i really want is Phish to be on tour. Sorry for the lack of excitment, folks, but Trey’s side projects do very little for me nowadays.
Dates (will check back regularly to see if more are added):
2/9 – Symphony Hall, Atlanta, GA
2/14 – Heinz Hall, Pittsburgh, PA
2/28 – Boettcher Concert Hall, Denver, CO (obviously Colorado gets a show)
3/10 Walt Disney Hall, Los Angeles, CA
