The Statement:
With the Omicron variant of Covid-19 surging in New York City, we have made the very difficult decision to reschedule next week’s run of shows at Madison Square Garden.

The health and safety of Phish fans, our crew, and venue staff is paramount in our minds. While Phish has played shows this year as the pandemic has continued, this variant’s ability for rapid transmission is unprecedented.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking we have never ever managed to catch Phish in action but truth be told the Jam Band scene isn’t covered all that much on the PiercingMetal website. I’ll still list the dates on our Events Calendar for the readers who like to go to as many shows as possible in the year and of course, I will express my interest to the bands powers that be when we are a little closer to the happenings. Some close friends really rave about them and I’d like to see a band that I have never witnessed before when its a possible thing to do. What about you readers? Are you Phisheads (that’s the title right?) How many times have you seen them and do you go to one, two or all of the nights of their annual residency? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
