Phish Festival 8: Halloween Musical Costume and New Year’s Eve Confirmed
I just spoke to Justin who’s on the scene at Festival 8. He was able to grab a playbill for tonight and it appears to confirm that Phish will cover the Rolling Stones’ classic album Exile on Main Street as their Halloween Musical Costume! The set will also feature Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings to round out the set with horns and a more appropriate vocalist. That sounds awesome!
But that’s not all. The playbill also includes a silly ad for David Bowie and UB40 playing NYE in Miami, which seems to confirm the rumor that Phish will play their New Year’s Eve run in Miami at American Airlines Arena! More updates to follow as the news streams in.
(editor’s note: I say “appears to confirm” above because, after following this band for so many years, I never put anything past them in terms of the silly tricks and games they’re willing to play just to mess with their fans. You just have to take it all with a grain of salt, sit back, smile and wait for it all to actually unfold.)
Read on for images of the playbill from Festival 8…
