Telluride News is reporting that Phish will play Telluride Aug 9 + 10, as rumored. The weekend before (Fri-Sat-Sunday) is Telluride Jazz Fest - my sources tell me that the Greyboy All-Stars will be playing on Sunday, August 8.
"Phish is on the calendar. Telluride’s arts board approved putting the jam band on the arts calendar for Monday, Aug. 9 and Tuesday, August 10.
The arts and culture board, CCAASE, handles the scheduling for the town, so that no two major festivals are booked on the same weekend.
The band would play for 9,000 people, said Craig Ferguson, the organizer of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. He’s working with Phish’s promoter, AEG Live, on bringing the band here.
If 9,000 people show up, that would make the Phish concert one of the biggest events of the summer, up there with Bluegrass and Blues and Brews."
