Happy Phish tour announcement week kids!! It's the most wonderful time of the year besides, well, tour itself.
But first, a big congrats to TWoLer Stuart White, winner of our Aura Music Festival ticket giveaway. Stuart won a pair of tickets to this festie, being held down in FL March 9-11. Remember to follow TWoL on Facebook and Twitter and keep your eyes peeled for upcoming ticket giveaways and you could be our next big winner.
As I'm sure all of you heard, Phish summer tour leg 1 was announced in typical Phishy fashion yesterday, on Leap Day, with a hilarious and only slightly disturbing video detailing Fishman's pre-tour training regimen. The tour includes stops at many of Phish's favorite stomping grounds like Deer Creek, Alpine Valley, SPAC and Jones Beach. There is also some kind of mini-festival stop in Atlantic City (don't forget your Maltese Falcon). You can request tickets through PTBM until Monday, March 12th. Listen along as we discuss each stop, the flow of the tour in general and TWoL's plans for the summer.
Also in this episode we discuss Ticketmaster's new iOS app, released just in time for Phish on-sales. In more ticket news, Bonnaroo and Phil Lesh had some major ticket debacles in the last few weeks. And in festival news we talked about the All Good and Mountain Jam lineups.
And of course, we heard your voicemails. Including perhaps the most epically crude voicemail that TWoL has ever received. Don't miss this one! And don't forget to call in and profess your love to us (or to just leave a plain old fashioned lot report) at 419.NO.WOOKS.
Good luck on your ticket requests and let the countdown to summer tour officially begin: 98 days 'til Worcester!
