There’s a reason why Phish’s summer trek will only take the band as far west as Commerce City, CO, where – for the fourth consecutive year – the group will wrap things up with a trio of Labor Day weekend shows at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (August 29-31). Phish revealed plans for a 12-date fall tour that will take the band to seven West Coast cities including Seattle at KeyArena on October 18.
The band’s new album, Fuego, was produced by Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel) and debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 earlier this month. Rolling Stone readers named Fuego as one of the “10 Best Albums of 2014 So Far” and NPR Music hailed it as Phish’s “finest work in more than a decade.” The New York Times’ Jon Pareles praised it as “frisky” and noted the depth of the lyrics for songs like “The Line” suits the band as it “recharges for its fourth decade.”
“After the reflective gratitude of 2009’s Joy...the party is back in full swing,” said Rolling Stone and The Associated Press concurred, noting, “It's a fun, spirited, rocking record.” “Featuring female backup vocals, powerful horns and a gripping wah-wah solo from frontman Trey Anastasio, Fuego’s ‘555’ takes a page from the book of Allen Toussaint funk. Phish captures that sophisticated-groove vibe and makes it its own, said Time Out New York. “[Fuego] feels bigger, brighter...than anything else they've ever done,” said Entertainment Weekly.
