It’s always a fun game within the community to see what will start popping up before a tour and to follow the series of debunking efforts that the more-informed go through for the n00bs that believe everything they read on PT. This year the whole buzz has been around the 30th Anniversary dates that might bust out as part of their “big” year that was hyped last year in the press, and people have been throwing out “Hampton this” or “ that” for months .

Not to mention the rumored return to — the community has been abuzz for a week or so hoping that the rumor that will return to in for a three-night run starting on is indeed a true one. When a column at a local news affiliate ran a certain guess that the band would be coming back soon, it was definitely a sign of dates coming soon and it caused a mighty stir of speculation and hotel reserving. Today, after LookTVonline.com ran with this story (via JamBase) — all signs are pointing to the fact that the rumored dates we see floating around are the right ones.

Without further ado, here are the dates we’re seeing that Phish will be booked for during their brief fall tour:

RUMORED CONFIRMED: Phish 2013 Fall

10/18-20 Hampton Coliseum, Hampton, VA
10/22 Blue Cross Arena at the War Memorial, Rochester, NY (just confirmed via Ticketmaster).
10/23 Glens Civic Center, Glens , NY
10/25-26 Arena, Worcester, MA
10/27 XL Center, Hartford, CT
10/29 Sovereign Center, Reading, PA
10/31-11/2 , , NJ

As always, take the dates above a grain of salt until we get official confirmation from the band, which I’m told can come as early as today. But these have been at least partially sourced against some people that know a lot more than myself and we’re feeling pretty confident they’re correct. Book those hotels, phans.

UPDATE (7/24): The official dates have been announced and all dates above have been confirmed.
