Booking Phish 101: Telluride & Wrigley

Telluride isn’t the only locale debating whether to bring Phish to town. As we mentioned a few weeks back, Phish is one of the bands that potentially may play Wrigley Field in Chicago. Today, the Cubs got a go-ahead to hold concerts on September 17th and 18th which bookends the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. According to the Sun-Times, Mike Lufrano, Cubs senior vice-president of community affairs confirms that either Phish, DMB or Paul McCartney will get the gig. There’s also talk in the article that the Cubs may or may not seek approval for an additional concert in July.

We should find out in the next few weeks whether Phish will play at Wrigley and/or Telluride’s Town Park. When the band schedules dates at sheds such as Jones Beach, Camden or Alpine Valley, they are able to keep the details of the process under wraps for the most part. When dealing with these unique venues we all get to see how “the deal goes down.” We’ll have more on Phish’s potential shows in Telluride on Tuesday after the Town Council meeting.

  1. What if the Cubs are in the playoffs in September???

    The MLB postseason doesn’t start until October nowadays.

  2. Cubs org confirmed that for the entire month of October wrigley field would be available for concerts as well.

  3. Horning’s? Apparently you’ve never been there before. That place can barely handle Yonder, let alone Phish. Don’t get me wrong it is an amazing place, but c’mon.

  4. Phis need a strong second baseman and a good bat for mid to late second set RBIs. I suggest they recruit in Telluride. The altitude makes better hitters and henc thier ability to hit the high notes.

  5. Phish need a strong second baseman and a good bat for mid to late second set RBIs. I suggest they recruit in Telluride. The altitude makes better hitters and provides their innate ability to hit the high notes.

  6. no one’s in the playoffs in September. Is it true they are working out a free show on the New Haven (CT) Green around Labor Day?
