Phish Return to Philly for Two Sold-Out Nights at the Mann Center
This Tuesday and Wednesday the Phish from Vermont return to the Mann Center in Fairmount Park, for two sold-out nights of their uniquely unclassifiable rock ‘n’ roll freakout, complete with immersive light show and traveling circus of devotees.
This run will be Phish’s eighth and ninth appearance at the Mann Center, two highly anticipated shows midway through a 25-date summer tour. Highly regarded for its gorgeous-sounding, 4,700-seat cedar wood pavilion, the Mann is an intimate venue that hosted two excellent shows by the band on July 8 and 9, 2014.
University City and Center City can expect Phish’s droves of friendly, excitable phans on their Mann-cations appearing in their watering holes, coffee shops, and Uber cars for the next few days; keep the cold brews of all kinds chilly.
The Mann’s grassy, rolling parking lots will host the traditional pre-show tailgating, frisbee, hooping and the endless search for extra tickets, as well as local Philadelphia food trucks like Vernalicious.
Phish, (Sold Out) Tuesday, August 11 and Wednesday, August 12; Doors at 6pm and show at 7:30pm; Mann Center, 5201 Parkside Ave., 215-546-7900, manncenter.org
