Shot in October 2009 at the band’s now-legendary Festival 8, Phish 3D gives viewers the sense that they are not only at the event, but on stage with the group that Entertainment Weekly has called “the biggest cult band in America.” During Festival 8, more than 40,000 devoted fans watched as Phish combined two of their most beloved traditions — the multi-day festival and the Halloween album “costume.” The band’s highly anticipated "musical costumes" are concerts involving the performance of an entire album by another artist—in this case, Phishcovered the Rolling Stones’ album Exile on Main St. Phish 3D also features fan favorites, never-before-seen cover songs, intimate footage of the band backstage and in rehearsals, songs from the band’s first ever full-length acoustic set, and performances taken from six additional sets of music.
Phish will kick off an extensive summer tour on June 11th
at Toyota Park in Chicago, IL. For full details, visit phish.com

Since forming in Vermont in 1983, Phish has developed a large following dedicated to their legendary live shows of eclectic, free-form rock, jazz, country, bluegrass and pop. The band has sold more than 8 million albums and DVDs in the United States, including fourteen studio albums and a multitude of live shows. The ceaseless touring of guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio, drummer Jon Fishman, bassist Mike Gordon and keyboardist Page McConnell helped make them one of the top concert draws in the nation until their indefinite hiatus in the summer of 2004. Phish officially reunited in March 2009 and later released their fourteenth album, Joy, with producer Steve Lillywhite. Phish headlined the Bonnaroo Festival in June 2009 and performed a 4-night New Year's Eve run at Miami's American Airlines Arena.
