Phish returns to SPAC for three-night run

[nggallery id=6152]

Phish won’t be in any hurry to leave once they roll their summer tour into town this week. The seminal Vermont-based jam band is set to spend three nights at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, their longest stint at the amphitheater. Phish has played SPAC 11 times since 1992, most recently on June 20, 2010, according to fansite ( The band is in the middle of an extended summer tour that kicked off in June and will bring them south and west before wrapping up with three shows in Colorado on Labor Day weekend. As for what Phish might play, only they know for sure. Then again, that’s part of the magic of a Phish show — you never really know what Phish is going to play live until they play it. 7:30 p.m. Friday-Sunday. $45-$60. Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Spa State Park, Saratoga Springs. 587-3330;



  1. Times Union Center also needs to change the Billy Joel banner that hangs inside – Phish now owns the record for the most shows there.

    It’s too bad most people will never give them a chance.

    This band rocks!


  2. Can’t wait. Police man came to SPAC SPAC SPAC SPAC SPAC SPAC…..hopefully the city missed the MILLIONS of dollars of revenues this band brings to the area and the police will be more respectful of people’s privacy. If they break the law in plain sight then that’s their problem. But the random searching of people’s possessions and person without cause was prevelant last time.

    Also to the younger fans that are new to the scene: PICK UP YOUR MESS! Phish fans have always been resprectful of the venues. SPAC is special and is a beautiful park on top of that. It’s not to much to ask that visitors and younger crowds looking to party keep their trash contained to a garbage bag. We all bring them and use them. It reflects well on yourself, the fans, the band and it’s the right thing to do. Let’s do our part and keep it clean.

    See you in the lots!!!!! Can’t wait.

    Billy Joel still holds the distinction at the Times Union Center. The Phish shows referenced were at SPAC. just sayin’.
