Johnny – So at this point, you can definitively say Phish would not be returning to Watkins Glen this summer?
Michael – Nope, Sorry folks, Phish is not coming back this summer. We are not even in discussions. We told them we’d stay in touch and every now and again, Richard (Glasgow) and I email each other and stay in touch but we don’t have any Phish shows coming back this summer.

Jim James confirms rumors that MMJ plan to play Boston on New Year’s Eve because Phish has already booked Madison Square Garden. “It’s a shame because we wanted to do more New Year’s shows at the Garden, but Phish booked it for the next four years,” James says. “We haven’t confirmed this yet, but we’re close to finalizing a New Year’s show in Boston. It’s just not one hundred percent yet. The crowd there is always really rowdy and fun. It would also be an easy travel for people in New York or Philly. Again, it’s not one hundred percent, but we’re all kind of drooling over the idea right now.”
