Breaking news on tonight’s Phish show in Toronto just got posted; due to the storms that ripped through the city yesterday and caused widespread flooding, the show tonight just can’t go on. However, it will go on in a few weeks as they’re able to make a stop back there on Monday, July 22 after the three-night run the band has planned at Chicago’s Northerly Island.
TONIGHT’S TORONTO SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED:
Due to insurmountable transportation and public safety issues resulting from the power outage in Toronto after severe downpours in the city, Phish’s performance tonight at Molson Canadian Amphitheare has been postponed. The show has been moved to Monday, July 22. All tickets will be honored at the new date. Refunds are available at point of purchase for fans who cannot attend. Phish has been greatly looking forward to their first Toronto appearance in nearly 13 years. Everyone involved worked tirelessly throughout the day and exhausted all options, but ultimately, public safety had to come first. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Suddenly that 7/9 poster has “collector’s item” written all over it, but I’m assuming nobody got their hands on it yet.
