Time to put your money where your mouth is…

So Phish is reuniting. Maybe you have heard, maybe you haven’t.  But for three days in Hampton, VA next March, all four members will stand together and play again.

It’s likely that they will tour after this, but these three days in Hampton will be epic.  And it doesn’t look like anyone gets to go.
