2. Confirmation of Phish Fall Tour!


While many like to say that no tour is confirmed til’ it’s on the dot-com, I’m gonna go ahead and say we have official CONFIRMATION of Phish’s upcoming fall tour! An Albany bar is advertising a post-Phish show after party with The Heayy Pets on Nov. 27th and Raisinhead on the 28th. This coupled with tons of independent sources independently confirming many of the dates below is confirmation enough for me, it’s on! Local hotels in Albany are almost sold out so grab a room fast while they last. The rumored dates are as follows:

Fall Tour 2009
11/20/09 – US Bank Arena – Cincinnati, Ohio
11/21/09 – US Bank Arena – Cincinnati, Ohio

3. Mule tour close-out at the Warfield w/ Special Guests


Gov’t Mule pulled out all the stops for the final show of their late summer/early fall tour that took place last weekend at The Warfield Theater in San Francisco. Warren and the boys brought out Jackie Greene, Grace Potter, and Jose Neto and rocked out on all the Mule classics and run throughs of the following set of choice covers: One of These Days (Floyd), Wish You Were Here (Floyd), Loser (GD), Morning Dew (GD), Empty Pages (Traffic), Wild Horses (Stones), Southern Man (Neil Young), and a smoking Mule > Who do you Love (Bo Diddley) > Whole Lotta Love (Zep) sandwich. Wow is just about all you can say to that. Give it a listen and check out some great pics from Jambase below:

    When is that Gov’t Mule setlist from? Was it all the same show? It does not seem to match the set from 9/25/09 at the Warfield. Sounds great though! Any help?

    It is 9/26/09 – the last show of the tour.
