As reported on Day Two of Festival 8, part of the showbill handed out that day included the flyer below, which seems to be Phish's stealthy way of announcing plans to play the American Airlines Arena in Miami December 28 - 31, 2009. But nothing has been officially announced as of yet.
I've been getting a lot of email from people asking me about onsale dates. Rumor has it that the public onsale date for tickets will be November 20. But that doesn't leave much time at all for online ticket requests, considering the Phish organization always lets people know if they scored the shows they requested before the public onsale date.
The Miami run has been rumored since January, when Phish first announced plans for early Summer Tour 2009. I guess if this is going to happen there is going to be an announcement any day now. All I can say is, be ready! When the announcement comes it will include word that online ticket requests are already being taken, so be ready!
