As expected, Phish has decided to postpone this year’s summer tour and re-routing it to 2021 with the same venues. Trey Anastasio recently hinted at the band not touring this summer during a recent Rolling Stone interview where he described his daily activities..
A lot of the day in isolation is FaceTime and Zoom calls. That takes most of the day. Family Zoom calls, business Zoom calls, because it’s a lot of drama around taking a giant touring operation and just stopping it. It’s not a simple thing at all. I mean, there’s our crew that we’re worried about. That takes up a lot of time. We’re trying to completely readjust a large organization in ways that we never could’ve foreseen. A lot of lives are being affected.
I just canceled a TAB tour. Gary, our sound man, and Bruno, our monitor mixer … these guys are all counting on this, so it’s not that different from what the whole world is going through. It’s not nearly as bad as what some people are going through, honestly, but there are logistics that need to be examined. It’s complicated.
Phish today (5/1) made the official summer tour postponement statement via their website.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we sadly have made the difficult decision to reschedule Phish’s entire 2020 summer tour, now moving to the summer of 2021. We’ve been as excited as ever to play music for you all, and are so heartbroken to postpone these dates. The health and well-being of Phish fans, our touring crew, and the communities in which the band plays is our top concern.
The rescheduled dates are below. The new dates for the Atlanta shows will be announced very soon.
A few nuts and bolts: All tickets and travel packages will be automatically honored for the rescheduled dates. However, full refunds are available at the point of purchase as well. Please note: If you purchased from an authorized ticket sales channel (Ticketmaster, Phish Tickets, CID or venue websites) you will have until May 31st to request a refund. These ticketing partners will be contacting all buyers shortly with further instructions. When new dates are announced for Atlanta, the deadline for ticket refunds for those shows will be extended.
Thank you for your understanding. We’re all in this together. Stay healthy and safe and we can’t wait to see you real soon.
