Phish could play Merriweather June 26-27
Is Phish playing Merriweather June 26-27? Depends on who you ask.
The tweet's still there, but the dates have since been yanked from Merriweather's main site. Merriweather publicist Audrey Schaefer said she hadn't heard about the show, and Phish's camp didn't respond to a request for comment.
Sounds like someone jumped the gun. Not that it matters, though. The dates have already been leaked to Phish fan sites, I hear.
As a colleague of mine at the Washington Post once said, secrets are hard to keep in the age of the Internet.
If the rumors are true, tickets to see the jam band to end all jam bands go on sale April 2. ...
There might be two shows as opposed to one this summer, but you can still count on the tickets being snapped up pronto.
Last year's show was, for the most part, flat. Some fans called it the worst stop of the tour. In my review, I said it was "a surprisingly mellow show overall -- almost underwhelming at times."
Let's hope Phish puts on a better performance this time around.
