On July 5th and 6th, Phish will return to Boston, MA’s Fenway Park, the iconic home field of the Boston Red Sox, for a two-night run as part of their 2019 summer tour. The shows will mark Phish’s second and third performances at Fenway after their one-off debut at the ballpark 10 years ago on 5/31/09.

In honor of Phish’s return to Fenway Park in 2019, the Red Sox will celebrate the band with a special “Phish Night” on Monday, June 24th, the week before the two-night run. The Red Sox’s “Phish Night” announcement, which begins with the “Tweezer”-referencing line “won’t you step into the Fenway,” notes that the first 1,500 ticket purchasers for the 6/24 game against the Chicago White Sox will receive a limited-edition pennant designed by Phish to commemorate the special event. Ahead of the game, local Phish tribute act Pardon Me, Doug will play a special set on nearby Jersey Street.
At Phish’s 2009 Fenway performance, the band opened the show with a pre-game-style rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” from the pitcher’s mound, clad in Red Sox jerseys. While the band themselves are not included in Fenway’s Phish Night announcement, they do not have a show scheduled for that evening as they make their way from Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD to Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, ME—a route that takes them right through Boston on June 24th. Will Phish make an appearance to reprise their National Anthem performance at the Boston Red Sox’s Phish Night? We’ll have to wait and see.
