Fresh on the heels of his recent Fall Tour, Mike and his band will celebrate the release of OGOGO with a Winter Tour out west that will kick off at Neptune Theatre in Seattle on February 9. The tour includes shows in Portland, Austin, Phoenix, Santa Cruz as well as two-nighters in San Francisco and Los Angeles. A complete list of tour dates can be found below.
The musicians that make up Phish are relentless students and teachers of musical prowess, theory, and expression. It seems as though they never rest and constantly create. After a powerful three nights at Dick’s Sporting Good Park in Colorado a month and a half ago, bassist Mike Gordon was back with his solo band to close his tour in the mountains at the elegant Boulder Theater.
There may be no band that has been more critically analyzed song by song and show by show than Phish. Phish phans are some of the most attuned and astute musical analysts in the music scene. Since my first show in December of 1996 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia to my 197th show at the closing of this summer tour at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado, I have seen and heard such vastly differing opinions about nearly every show.
