Hello, you've reached the Phish hotline. This is a new message as of February 24th.
     Since Phish's Spring schedule has changed slightly - they won't be starting their work in the
     studio until later in April - the band has decided to play a few shows at the beginning of that
     month.
     On April 2nd and 3rd, Phish will play at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island, New
     York. Seats will be general admission on the floor and reserved in the stands. Tickets will go
     on sale Saturday, February 28th at 9:00 AM Eastern time at the Irving Plaza Box Office with
     no service charge (in person, cash only); via Ticketmaster charge-by-phone: 212.307.7171;
     and at Ticketmaster outlets in the tri-state area: New York City and New York state north as
     far as Kingston, New Jersey north of Tom's River, and Fairfield County, Connecticut. Tickets
     will also be available via Ticketmaster online after a one-hour delay, at 10 AM. If any tickets
     remain, they will also be available at the Nassau Coliseum Box Office as of 10:30 AM on
     Sunday, March 1st. Wristbands will be available at Ticketmaster outlets starting at 5:00 PM
     Thursday, February 26th. There will be a limit of 6 tickets per person per show. Since the
     floor is general admission, designated tapers' tickets will not be issued; if you wish to audio
     tape the show, you will need to have a general admission floor ticket in order to bring taping
     equipment into the building.
     And on the 4th and 5th of April, Phish will play at the Civic Center in Providence, Rhode
     Island. Seats will be reserved and tickets will go on sale Saturday, February 28th at 11:00 AM
     Eastern time at the Providence Civic Center Box Office with no service charge; via
     Ticketmaster charge-by-phone: 401.331.2211; and at Ticketmaster outlets in the New England
     region: Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Connecticut
     except Fairfield County. Tickets will also be available via Ticketmaster online after a one-hour
     delay, at noon. Wristbands will be available at the Providence Civic Center starting at 4:00 PM
     Thursday, February 26th. Priority at Ticketmaster outlets will be determined by random
     number; you must be there one hour before the sale begins to participate in the random
     number distribution. There will be a limit of 6 tickets per person per show. Tapers' tickets for
     the Providence Civic Center show will be available via charge-by-phone from the Flynn
     Theatre box office only; the number to call is 802.863.5966 (these tickets will not be available
     in person at the Flynn, but only via phone). Tapers' tickets will also go on sale on February
     28th at 11 AM, and there will be a limit of two tapers' tickets per show per person.
     Because of the limited amount of time, there will be no mail order for the Nassau and
     Providence shows.
     Phish's summer plans are still under development; currently it looks as though the band will be
     touring in Europe for a couple weeks at the beginning of July; since there will be little time
     between when the Europe dates are confirmed and when they go on sale, we will not be able
     to include the Tickets-by-Mail information and order form in a newsletter. These will appear
     on the Phish web site - http://www.phish.com - only. If you are interested in mail ordering
     tickets for the shows in Europe, be sure to check the web site regularly for announcements and
     deadlines.
     After the European shows Phish will return to the US to tour from the west coast to the east in
     the second half of July and first half of August, culminating with an event in the spirit of the
     Clifford Ball and the Great Went. At the recent monthly meeting of the Loring Development
     Authority Board of Directors, the proposal for Phish to return to Limestone this summer on
     the weekend of August 14-16 was unanimously approved. We are now in the process of
     creating a new name and new identity for this year's event, building on all the positive aspects
     of last year's experience while incorporating many fresh new ideas as well. Within the next two
     months there will be a follow-up press conference announcing the new name, ticket
     information and other details. This event will conclude Phish's Summer 1998 US Tour, which
     is scheduled to begin in mid-July; tickets for this and the other shows will be available via mail
     order (as well as through regular outlets), to be announced on the web site and in the next
     Phish newsletter, scheduled for mailing at the end of March.
     If you would like to be on the mailing list for the Phish newsletter, send your address on a
     postcard to Phish Mailing List, P. O. Box 4400, Burlington, Vermont, 05406. If you're
     correcting your address with us, let us know both the old one and the new one so we can keep
     our records accurate. For Phish merchandise, please call 802.862.5400.
     The Phish Hotline number is 802.860.1111.
