One of the most celebrated genre-transcending, improvisational groups of all time, Phish, has been touring for almost four decades—accumulating a massive and loyal fan-base along the way. With over eight million albums and live DVDs sold, Phish is a testament to the staying power of pure showmanship, organic support, and word-of-mouth-propelled success. Co-founded by guitarist Trey Anastasio, drummer Jon Fishman and bassist Mike Gordon at the University of Vermont in Burlington in the fall of 1983, Page McConnell joined the band as its keyboardist in 1985 and the lineup has remained unchanged for over 30 years. In addition to their iconic live shows, Phish has recorded over 14 studio albums for Elektra Records and their own label, JEMP Records. In the summer of 2017, the band performed a milestone 13-show run at Madison Square Garden titled The Baker’s Dozen, playing 26 unique sets and a total of 237 songs without any repeats. Phish returns to the Garden again for four nights this December for their traditional year-end run, bringing the total number of shows at MSG to 64.
