Fourmile Canyon Revival with Members of Phish, String Cheese Incident & More…
By now you’ve definitely heard the Phish news that the members of the band will be playing on their off-day between their headlining appearance at Austin City Limits and the start of their fall tour in Broomfield, CO. They just recently announced the Fourmile Canyon Revival to help benefit the region recently devastated by fire…
Colorado’s music community comes together for “Fourmile Canyon Revival,” a remarkable night of music to raise funds for individuals and families directly affected by the devastating Fourmile Fire near Boulder. The benefit concert will take place on Saturday, October 9th at 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO.
Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, Page McConnell and Trey Anastasio will take part in the event, on the eve of their fall tour.
With each band member listed separately, it’s a pretty safe bet that you won’t be seeing Phish in their native form at this show but that’s just plenty more time for an awesome range of collaborations between the other artists on the bill, with members from Yonder Mountain String Band and String Cheese Incident scheduled to appear as well (also with Big Head Todd & the Monsters, Vince Herman and Drew Emmitt). Tickets went on sale this morning and are already sold-out.
Here’s the full press release….

Colorado’s music community comes together for “Fourmile Canyon Revival,” a remarkable night of music to raise funds for individuals and families directly affected by the devastating Fourmile Fire near Boulder. Presented by KBCO, the benefit concert will take place on Saturday, October 9th at 1st Bank Center in Bromfield, Colorado. It will feature Colorado’s own The String Cheese Incident, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Vince Herman & Drew Emmitt.
The members of Phish – Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, Page McConnell and Trey Anastasio — are also honored to take part in the event, which comes on the eve before the launch of their fall tour. Colorado was the site of Phish’s first extended tour outside of the Northeast, and the band has always felt a deep connection to the community.
“It’s been humbling to see the generosity and immediate response of these amazing musicians. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime event,” said KBCO Program Director Scott Arbough.
All proceeds from the concert will go directly to the Boulder Mountain Fire Relief Fund. The Fund supports the local volunteer fire departments that courageously fought the recent fire and the mountain residents whose lives were directly impacted by this disaster and are in critical need of financial support.
