More Stirrings of Phish Fest in Limestone 8/27-8/29

A new comment was received today here on Welcome To Now Blog regarding the rumor that Phish is looking to do an end-of-summer festival after Jones Beach. Here is the comment verbatim:

IT Festival 'Tower Jam' - Loring AFB

“Fistyphisy Said on June 22, 2010 at 12:20 pm:

This is totally confirmed… I was backstage at the Saratoga NY show the other night. I am 100% sure that the road after Jones Beach leads to Limestone ME. Phish has rented out Loring Air Force base for the weekend of Aug. 27th, 28th and 29th. This was confirmed by a member of the band and two stage hands (at different times of the night). This is what was stated, “We looked at a place in New Hampshire, the international speedway, it would have been perfect, but they have an event planned already and we were too late. We had to go with the ol’ stand by and book Limestone”. – Undisclosed Band Member.

This is so low key that only a few people back stage knew about where the festival was. However, I talked to others that knew about the festival, but didn’t know where yet. For example, I talked to the bands set/show photographer and he was told that he was booked for a festival in late Aug., but was not told where. He was told to keep the dates open for a Phish weekend festival. I also talked to a guy on the sound board that knew about a festival in late Aug. but stated, “I can’t tell you anymore than that, stay tuned”.

As this past weekend progressed from Hartford->Spac, there was a newly revived comotion about a late summer festival and word getting out from close to the band. Nothing’s confirmed yet folks, but let’s all hope for a return to Limestone this summer! Stay tuned to the NOW as things continue to unfold for Phish Summer 2010!

Watered-Down Phish in VA

Last night, Phish performed for the first time at the intimate Harbor Center NTELOS Pavillion in Porstmouth, VA (just 30 minutes away from the Mothership). While the show offered up a number of highlights and solid playing for the most part, the setlist left something to be desired the band’s playing was notably less exploratory and ‘loose’ as the opening 3 nights of tour. Four shows into the tour and yet to repeat a song, the stage is set for Hartford 2010 – look out for yet-unplayed gems PYITE, Birds of a Feather, Yamar, and oxy-years hits Scents and Subtle Sounds and ASIHTOS. It’s gonna be hot people!

Phish – Greatest Hits In Chicago

The boys really kicked Summer Tour 2010 off with a bang last night, offering up a greatest hits-filled show in Chicago. This has to be the most exciting tour opener of any Phish 2.0 or 3.0 trek, and arguably one of the tightest and best played. The show focused on older material with big jam vehicles DWD, Possum, Reba, Divided Sky, and David Bowie all appearing in the 1st set! The 2nd set also started with a full on blitz of two jam sandwiches of Light->Maze, and Ghost -> Limb by Limb.

Phish Totyota Park 2009

The second set then slowed down a bit with a sweet Prince Caspian followed by an always welcome Horse-> Silent. To cap things off, a fun and explorative Antelope closed out the set but not before the Band offered their first debut of the tour – Trey and The Dude of Life’s newly penned ‘Show of Life’ that was first played on the recent TAB Band Tour. A one-two punch encore of Cavern and Julius ended things on a rocking high note – hopefully a theme that will continue tonight at Blossom and throughout the tour!
