I was hoping for a return to Alpine, or at least another stop at Northerly, so I'm a little disappointed.

I'll have to see if I can make The Gorge work, because I've wanted to see a show there for a long time, so this might as well be it.

I've heard rumors about Halloween in Chicago though, so that would be awesome. Presumably at Rosemont Horizon.

weird to see this kind of tour for this Midwesterner. Can't remember the last time there wasn't a show within driving distance, which for me ideally is within 8 hrs.

So I can't be too upset.

Gonna hit Dick's and Alpharetta

And I have a feeling the Midwest will get some fall treatment. I too have heard the Chicago Halloween rumors, but I'm skeptical, even though they have done it in the past. I assume they would play Allstate arena which is meh. They did just build a new arena, that holds close to 11,000. so whether Halloween or not(seen early october float around as well) would love to see them there. Be nice to see Detroit/Ohio/Stl/Nashville/ Ky get some love as well.

Agreed. But I'm to the point where I get that I'm just going to have to fly somewhere to see these guys. They actually spoiled MI by having two shows in three years here at the start of 3.0 but then haven't been back since. Maybe a Fall date is coming but I won't hold my breath.

Yep. As a Chicago based fan, I have definitely been spoiled. 2-3 shows a year since...always. I'm cool with this tour. Following Phish around has given me a chance to see a lot of the country (I would have never gone to some great American cities like LA, Boston, or Tuscaloosa if it wasn't for Phish) and meet some cool people.

Yea I feel the same way every time Stl is in the summer tour rumor mix. I know they just built a new arena in Detriot, so maybe there is hope. would it be too big for a midweek stop? I guess they could close of some of the sections, or maybe just have a weekend show there

Dead & Company just did a show there in Thanksgiving and I felt it was mostly packed. I'd imagine Phish could fill it just the same.

As a NY fan I.... don't have your lack of show problems. :wave: :D

I'm actually pretty excited to head to Camden for the first time. It's mid week so only one show is really possible to drive down there for. Not usually the guy to get excited for the Lots, but I hear Camden is pretty wild, so that'll be fun.

Not putting in for the lottery for Camden though. I'll wait for the onsale to hopefully score a PAV. If not I hear the lawn is pretty decent so I'll just go that route.

1 Camden -> Wonderball in Watkins and I'll be allllllll set!

Brother and his family might be visiting the east coast from Israel around mid-August. Merriweather may be in the cards! At least the Sunday show.

My plans just got changed. I was supposed to go to The Gorge with a friend, but it is the same weekend as his girlfriend's birthday, so now it looks like I'm going to do BGCA->The Forum, Dick's.

Anyone have a hold yet ;) :wave:

Hope the lotto is good for those that put in. :thumbup:

I gotta say even with the gradual ticket price increase over the yrs, when I went to hit the submit button I gave out a little "damn". That was just for 5 shows.

^ I put in for 9 tickets in total. I got hit by sticker shock, with a dash of buyer's remorse, when I saw the (potential) grand total.

Every time my phone buzzes, I think it might be holds. My career lotto batting average is below .200, so any optimism I have is insulated by a nice foam layer of caution.

Sometimes I wonder why I even put in for Phish Ticketing. It's usually cheaper to buy them from the normal avenues.

fwiw

The TM/Live nation App sucked for Atlanta onsale. People were having more luck on the mobile website.

It's to the point where I don't care if I get lawn,having to deal with onsales suck :thumbdown:

People were underestimating the ticket demand for these shows(Atlanta, for one) in hindsight though with really no summer tour last yr, how good baker's was and with a sort of light tour this summer, demand is there.
Get what you can folks! This summer gonna be :twisted: ;)

I will manage my expectations. 2017 was an unusual year. If Phish doesn't match the quality of 2017 that does not mean that 2018 is a bad year. My only expectation is to have fun. I will look forward to the shows but I won't get too excited. I will manage my expectations. 2017 was an unusual year.

Did you miss the GIF above? Sitting on my couch in a sleeveless shirt drinking beer :thumbup:

Oh, and hoping that someone gets a nice live stream that I can check out. I assume that Phish's youtube page will stream the set 1 and 2 openers, so I'll check those out at least.
