PHISH: Icculus Blesses Fans with Summer Tour 2014 Dates

In what’s quick become an annual tradition, the second Vermont’s Phab Phour step off of the MSG stage early January 1st each year the rumor mill is officially “Bouncing Around the Room”.

With the amount of Phrenetic phanactics nowadays the social universe of Phish is akin to 24×7 hour news outlets, with everyone stretching to find anything to report on the quartet’s future. Will 2014 be a year off? Will they take it light? What do all these side project dates mean? We’ve all heard it, we all know we just have to wait, but we all suck it up greedily anyway. And why wouldn’t we? Phish tour has become the virtual Chris-Kwanza-Hannakuh-Mas of every jamband fan’s year.

People plan vacations around it, weddings, births, anything to make as many shows as humanely possible. But fear not, Icculus has listened and the dates have been released. New York folk will be happy to know we get a three-night Fourth of July run in Saratoga and a mid-July date at Canandaigua’s Constellation Brands Amphitheater. If this isn’t going nearly Fast Enough for You, watch the video below and see the entire treasure map to Colonel Forbin’s Stash.
