Phish has announced their next Dinner And A Movie, this time a special New Year’s Eve event called Dinner And A Rematch.
Exactly 25 years after the audience tied the band 1-1 in a chess rivalry, Phish challenges YOU to a rematch as part of a special New Year’s Eve “Dinner And A Movie”. We’ll be presenting Phish’s first New Year’s Eve show from Madison Square Garden – 12/31/95 – in its entirety, beginning at 8:30 pm ET at webcast.livephish.com.
Watch the full announcement video below.
We’ve teamed up with the fine folks at Chess.com to host the Band vs. Audience online chess game which will start right at the top of the show and move at a decent clip. In short, fans will have 5 minutes to move their piece (the band will have no more than that as well). At the end of 5 minutes, whichever move has the most votes is the ‘audience’ move. Stick around during the set breaks as the band joins in from their various homes, playing a few moves and providing scintillating commentary on the game.
