Phish plan summer tour, 3-D movie

, Staff

Phish have revealed plans to return to the road this summer with one Massachusetts show scheduled. The band will play the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Tuesday, June 22. All tickets are priced at $50 and will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

The Vermont-based rockers continue to tour in support of their latest release, Joy. Released last fall, the Steve Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews Band) produced album is the band’s 12th studio effort and first since 2004’s Undermind. Phish will precede their stop in Mansfield with a pair of shows scheduled for the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut on June 17 and 18.

Phish fans will get to experience the band in a new way when Phish3D hits theaters at the end of the month. The 3-D concert film is comprised of footage from the band’s Festival 8, held last October in Indio, California. More than 40,000 faithful fans watched as Phish delivered eight sets over three days including the band’s special Halloween set where there covered the Rolling Stones’ album Exile on Main, as well as their first ever full-length acoustic set. Watch the film’s official trailer below.

Most recently, Phish performed Genesis’ “Watcher of the Skies” and “No Reply at All” night at the 25th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony after guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio inducted the group. Anastasio also spent the winter months touring solo (including a stop at the House of Blues), as did bassist Mike Gordon.
