Mike returns to the road in January, this time hitting the western half of the U.S. with his band on the heels of a well-received June run. The tour will begin with the band's debut shows in Texas beginning in Austin on January 22 before carving its way west with stops in Flagstaff, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Denver and others.
With another summer tour looming the “Phab Phour” from Vermont have whet the appetites of their fan base by unleashing another monstrous concert box-set. The band continues their string of excellent archival releases with the newest addition to their ever-expanding live catalogue; an 8-disc collection presenting three incendiary shows performed at the Paradiso in the Netherlands during their heralded 1997 European tours, which for all intents and purposes will be called Amsterdam ’97.
Phish tour is just around the corner and that means it’s time once again for the Mimi Fishman Foundation to host an auction for the WaterWheel Foundation.
The auction features ticket packages for each show on the summer tour as well as wonderful travel packages for Alpine Valley, Atlanta, Dicks Sporting Goods Park, and Magnaball.
Bids are currently being accepted with the auction coming to a close June 4.
It is no secret that most Phish fans consider the band’s finest, or at least most grand, performances were heard over the 1999 New Year’s Eve run at Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation in Florida. Even the band members themselves have hinted that those shows may have been the pinnacle of their storied history.

Guitarist Bob Weir has returned to performance with some stellar extended-for-network-TV jamming with host John Mayer on The Late Late Show.
It’s been two weeks since the surviving members of Grateful Dead announced that they would be performing a final farewell three-day concert event over Fourth of July weekend at Chicago’s Solider Field. The most important psychedelic rock band in history turned fifty years old this year. Another equally significant anniversary for 2015 is twenty years ago this July were the final performances of the Grateful Dead with lead guitarist and bandleader Jerry Garcia.
The Mimi Fishman Foundation has launched their first on-line auction of 2015.
In addition to signed 2014 tour posters, the auction features some one-of-a-kind gems. Included are signed drumheads from the “Fuego” recording sessions, signed drumheads and drum sticks used during Phish’s appearance on the Tonight Show as well as a signed drumhead used during their Late Show with David Letterman appearance.
The funds raised from this auction will be divided among various charities the Foundation supports.
