“Phish are in one of the best grooves of their career,” said Rolling Stone in a feature that coincided with the launch of the group’s summer tour. The band is heading west for this weekend’s shows at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA (July 26 and 27), which will both be webcast on LivePhish.com. The following weekend’s sold-out shows at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA (August 2 – 4) will also be webcast live. For further details, visit www.LivePhish.com.
“With a second year run that miraculously bested last year’s Labor Day throw down, Dick’s [Sporting Goods Park] evidently can pull the very best out of a band that aims high every night…nearly every song in the first set saw the team patiently building on each other’s offerings, elevating spectacular moments of four-way cohesion,” observed The Denver Post’s Reverb in a look at 2012’s tour closer.
The band released two live collections in the weeks leading up this year’s summer tour: Ventura, a six-CD set that captures two full shows, recorded July 30, 1997 and July 20, 1998 at Ventura County Fairgrounds in Ventura, California, and Live Bait Vol. 9, a nine-track compilation of live Phish performances that can be streamed or downloaded for free at http://bit.ly/livebait09.
