Coming on the heels of Phish’s latest release announcement for the Hurricane Relief effort, I’m seeing little speckles and spots of information on the upcoming DVD release, Live in Brooklyn.
Honestly, I can’t figure out why some of this information keeps popping up in the hard-to-find locations yet none of this has been officially announced yet. On Buy.com, they’re saying November 1. On Sunshine Daydream’s site, it’s December 6. I originally thought it would be out by the end of the month. This is a perfect example of some bad (or just premature) information being put out before anyone makes it official; the only way to correct it is to answer it with an official announcement.
Here’s some of the roundup that I could find to try and piece together the untold story. If anyone has any additional info (officlally or unofficially, on-the-record or off…), we’d love to take a look and give credit where due. Send us an email at vibes @ livemusicblog.com.

Live in Brooklyn was filmed on June 17, 2004 at Keyspan Park at Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY. It marked the start of what would be the final Phish tour and was the first date after the emotional news of their breakup was announced. The show was simultaneously broadcast to movie theaters nationwide-arguably the most successful live theatrical broadcast to date, with legions of loyal Phish fans reportedly dancing in the aisles across the country. Included on this DVD are the two complete sets the band performed that day along with sound check footage and three full peformances from the second Brooklyn date. Phish were a cultural phenomenon-touring and recording for 21 years with a remarkably dedicated following who cintniue to celebrate everything Phish. [Sunshine Daydream]
Update: Also on the DVD (from 6/18/04), Bug, Taste, and Tweezer Reprise [thanks Scotty G]
Update #2: Apparently this DVD just keeps getting put on hold or something, but this is the latest I’ve heard….
