Call all the Phisheads.
Atlantic City will be the head of the sea, as the jam band will return for three concerts on August 5, 6 and 7.
Phish was founded in 1983 at the University of Vermont, but the band also has roots in Jersey. Frontman and successful soloist Trey Anastasio is a native of Princeton, and keyboardist Paige McConnell of Basking Ridge.
In addition to playing on AC beach, the band will perform July 19 and 20 at the Mann Center in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, and July 22 and 23 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, New York; and July 26 and 27 in Jones Beach, New York; and July 30 and 31 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, Maryland.
The band is returning to Atlantic City after three performances in August that have been postponed since 2020 due to the pandemic.
