It's no surprise... the boys love Colorado, and now you can add three shows over Labor Day to the mix.
The Coventry Crew in Telluride (2010)
A couple of months ago, our sources confirmed the boys would be playing a three-show run over Labor Day weekend inside the soccer stadium where the Mile High festival takes place. Our source also confirmed that the band/management wanted to wait as long as possible due to sluggish sales for Super Ball IX. Hence, why the Brahlorado announcement was held back a couple of weeks...until today.
We had also heard a medium-spiced rumor that Phish was going to play a couple of shows in New York City at Governor's Island. But once Dick's Park was kangfirmed, we had no idea if a multi-night run in NYC would be possible before or after Colorado. At this point, the band's press release killed any more speculation at any more summer-ending shows.
Anyway, the news is up on Phish.com, so the ocelot is out of the bag. The Coventry crew is (primarily) based out of Colorado, so expect as many of us at those shows as possible.
Here's what Phish.com says...
Phish will close their 2011 Summer Tour with three consecutive nights at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO over Labor Day weekend (September 2, 3 and 4). Onsite camping will be available in the lush soccer fields adjacent to the stadium. Colorado was the site of Phish's first extended tour outside of the Northeast, and the band has enjoyed a special connection with the community ever since. These additional dates will be the last announced by the band for the Summer and Fall.Click here for ticket lottery.
An online ticket request period is currently underway for the Dick's Sporting Goods Park shows at http://phish.portals.musictoday.com/ and will conclude at noon ET on Monday, May 23. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Saturday, June 4, at 10:00 AM MT.
"See ya in Brahlorado for a Labor Day throwdown!"
