Following a summer tour chock full of 20-minute jams and unexpected curveballs, Phish has announced their return to Madison Square Garden for a four-night New Year’s Run, set to take place from Friday, December 28th through Monday, December 31st.
An online ticket request period is now underway here. The request period ends on Monday, October 8th at 10:00 am ET. Ticket request status emails will be sent by Thursday, October 11th at 11:59 pm ET.
According to Phish’s New Year’s run lottery ticketing page,
A limited number of tickets are now being offered for the upcoming Phish NYE run at Madison Square Garden via a ticket request period.
All requests, regardless of when they are placed, are treated equally in the system. You can request tickets to one or more shows, but your entire ticket request for all shows must be placed at one time.
4-day ticket requests are available. You must request either a 4-Day ticket or a combination of single day tickets, you may not request both. Requesting 4-day tickets and single day tickets may result in low priority assignment or rejection of your requests.
Our allotment of tickets for each show is limited, so we may not be able to fulfill every request that we receive. This allotment will contain tickets in all areas of the venue from GA floor to reserved seating behind the stage and across all price levels where applicable.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, October 12th at Noon ET at ticketmaster.com or charge by phone at 866-858-0008.
Phish and CID Entertainment are also offering travel packages for the New Year’s Run (which include hotel and tickets). Phish will be donating their proceeds from these travel packages to the WaterWheel Foundation. Travel Packages go on sale Friday, September 28th at Noon ET at bit.ly/PhishNYE18_TP
This year’s Phish New Year’s Run will mark the 12th time the band has rung in the New Year at the “World’s Most Famous Arena” (not counting ’94, when the band made their MSG debut on 12/30 amidst a 4-night, 4-city New Year’s Run that finished the following night in Boston). The quartet has hosted their traditional year-end run in NYC in all but two years in the 3.0 era. The other two, 2009 and 2014, were hosted at American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL. You can watch Phish’s cosmic New Year’s Ever gag from Madison Square Garden last year below:
