Phish Rumored to be Playing Halloween Show in Atlantic City

first_imgIn an article released on Press of Atlantic City‘s official website there is a strong circulating rumor that Phish may be playing one of their notorious Halloween shows at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall later this year.A strong rumor just came out of the mill that says the jam band Phish will play the Halloween weekend of their fall tour in Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall as they did three years ago. WOW! This will bring a lot of excitement to our seashore resort.We can expect them to play a concert in costume covering another artist’s album. If you were there in 2010, you heard a cover of Little Feat’s live album, “Waiting For Columbus.” It is anyone’s guess as to what they will play this year. Personally, I am pulling for Led Zeppelin.While this is still just a rumor at this point, with Phish’s success in the past at the venue it’s not unbelievable. The article continues:This will be a big coup for Atlantic City. Phish’s first concert in the city took place in Boardwalk Hall in October 2010. They filled every space in the hall, and it was a tremendous success. Last spring, Phish came back to Atlantic City to perform in Bader Field and drew a big crowd that set the pace for the other bands that followed them.If you’re not aware of Phish’s Halloween tradition you’re in for even more of a treat now. In the past Phish has performed what they call “Musical Costumes,” essentially making the second-set a cover set, covering an entire album of another group. So far they’ve played covers of The Rolling Stones‘ Exile on Main Street, Little Feat‘s Waiting for Columbus, The Velvet Underground‘s Loaded, The Beatles‘ White Album, The Who‘s Quadrophenia, Talking Heads‘ Remain in Light and Pink Floyd‘s Dark Side of the Moon, so any album can be expected.Again, this is just a rumor as of right now, but be prepared.…as this will be the first concert on their fall tour, it is anticipated that tickets will be sold out within minutes of being put on sale. The specific date for the sale has not yet been announced.Read the original article here.last_img read more
