Phish rolls into Chicago for the first of three nights at Northerly Island’s FirstMerit Bank Pavilion. As we previewed earlier today, weather played a factor in last year’s run so let’s hope the only thing pouring down on the audience this year is a whole lotta’ jam. Phish is webcasting this one so follow along on Couch Tour for all the setlist shenanigans!
