PHISH has announced plans for The Baker’s Dozen, an unprecedented 13-night run at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, set for Friday, July 21 through Sunday, August 6.
The Baker’s Dozen brings the band’s total performances at the famed arena to a remarkable 52 in the years since their Garden debut in December of 1994. With these 2017 performances, PHISH joins a small, elite group of artists that have played over 50 shows at Madison Square Garden, including Elton John, Billy Joel and the Grateful Dead.
Tickets to The Baker’s Dozen will be available as a 13-show package for the price of 12, or as individual nights. An online ticket request period for individual tickets and Baker’s Dozen packages are available now at Phish Tickets through Sunday, February 12 at 11:59 pm ET. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 17 at Noon ET at Ticketmaster only. If tickets remain, they will be available at the Madison Square Garden box office starting on Saturday, February 18 at 10AM. As with Phish’s most recent runs at The Garden, all floor tickets will be General Admission.
The band’s latest studio album, BIG BOAT, released last October via their own JEMP Records, was called “their most relatable album ever” by Rolling Stone. NPR said, “After years of revealing itself through flurries of notes, hypnotic grooves and exploratory improvisations that often masked deeper meaning, Phish now seems most engaged when singing from the heart.” PHISH recently kicked off 2017 by returning to Riviera Maya’s Barceló Maya Beach for their second annual four-night all-inclusive concert vacation. All shows are available for download exclusively at LivePhish.com or streaming via the LivePhish app. The band will not be touring in the fall of 2017.
