Phish plots fall trek along West Coast
With their summer on the road nearing completion, jam-rockers Phish have firmed up a new fall outing of the West Coast.
The established outfit, helmed by Trey Anastasio, will first complete a three-night run Aug. 29-31 in Commerce City, CO, before taking a six-week break from the tour trail. The next round of performances will kick off Oct. 17 in Eugene, OR, and move through six major markets across the western U.S. Multiple nights are on the books in Santa Barbara, CA (10/21-22); San Francisco, CA (10/27-29); and Las Vegas, NV (10/31-11/2).
One of the three Vegas performances falls on Halloween, though there is no official word about what the band's annual holiday tradition will hold this year. During a June interview with NPR, Anastasio and bandmate Page McConnell hinted that a "new tradition" might be in the works.
Phish is touring in support of "Fuego," the group's 12th studio effort that surfaced in June. The album marked the band's first collection of new music since 2009's "Joy."
