Phish kicks off their fall tour this Wednesday, Nov. 18, at the Cobo Arena in Detroit. The band recently announced a four-night New Year's Eve run at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Fla., with tickets going on sale Saturday, Nov. 21 through Ticketmaster outlets. Prior to breaking up in 2004, New Year's Eve was always a special three-set tradition for the band, on par with their much-hyped Halloween shows.
As for Umphrey's McGee, they have extra special holiday plans as well. From Dec. 10 to Dec. 14 they will return to Jamaica where, paired with the Disco Biscuits, they will perform nightly on a beach stage at the infamous Hedonism III resort in Runaway Bay. It is part of an all-inclusive festival, now in its third year, called Caribbean Holidaze. Attendees get to partake in activities such as golfing, tennis and scuba diving, often alongside band members, during the day and get treated to intimate performances from both bands, their side-projects and several additions each night. A limited number of tickets remain and you can count on one thing from these bands -- there will be jams.
