Tickets are being sold lottery-style, to no doubt subdue millions of phans that have been waiting for this day for… Too long. Phish is selling tickets through their website, by request. Buyers select their tickets and hand over their personal information, and their names are put into a lottery that will end on October 8, 2008. E-mails to lottery winners will be sent out prior to the shows in March. Each ticket is $49.50 with a $5.40 service fee and $10.00 shipping fee.
Hampton is no stranger to Phish, nor is it to many phans; Phish’s Hampton Comes Alive, a live, 6-disc album released in 1998, was nominated for a Grammy that same year. The band was presented with a Jammy this past year in New York, and since, rumors have been “phlying” about their reunion. It looks like a lot of phans had their fingers crossed, and not in vain, for this one.
