Phish sets eight Indio dates

July 25, 2009|Todd Martens

West Coast Phish fans may have been left out of the band's initial run of spring reunion dates, but the act is making a grand overture to its Pacific Time Zone fan base this fall.

After much rumor and speculation, the band confirmed late Thursday that it would stage a three-day event in Indio beginning Oct. 30. The jam band will take over the same Empire Polo Grounds that host the Coachella and Stagecoach fests for what Phish is calling "Festival 8."

The band will perform a total of eight sets throughout the Halloween weekend. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday via MusicToday.
