Just as with Phish’s Summer Tour, Ticketmaster and Live Nation have started posting information about dates on the group’s Fall Tour before the actual announcement of the tour by the band. Live Nation shows listings for two shows in Philadelphia on November 24 and 25 at the Wachovia Center, while Ticketmaster shows a listing for November 29 at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, ME.
These shows would mark the group’s first shows at the Wachovia Center, as they have played the older soon-to-be-demolished Spectrum on previous trips to the City of Brotherly Love in cold weather. Phish has performed at the CCCC a number of times starting with an epic show on December 30, 1993. There have been all sorts of rumors posted on sites like Phish Thoughts, Coventry, the Live Music Blog and Welcome to Now will all sorts of potential fall tour dates, but the Portland show was not one of them.
