Phish, the resilient "four man ethereal improvisation-based jazz-rock-barbershop quartet fusion band," will have Madison Square Garden on lock for 13 nights this summer, bringing their total number of performances at the arena to 52. It's unclear if the residency means the band will be forgoing their traditional summer tour, but it does mean that massive donuts are rolling through NYC:

The residency starts July 21st and continues on weekends (with a couple shows mid-week throughout the run) through August 6th. Diehard obsessives who buy tickets to all 13 shows will get them for the price of 12, which adds up to $960 for general admission or $880.00 for reserved seating, not including additional fees and delicate discussions with their wives about their kind of ridiculous Phish budget.

Phish first performed at the Garden in 1994; most recently the band closed out 2016 with a four night run at the arena that climaxed in an elaborately choreographed New Year's Eve stunt:

In an October interview with Relix, frontman Trey Anastasio, who resides in Manhattan, discussed the band's latest album, "Big Boat," and referred to "these crazy times we live in. Everyday it’s another news story, glaciers melting, floods, fires, I even read a story recently that said that apparently it’s become unhealthy to live next to the ocean because the algae is gonna kill you, and on and on it goes - there’s no food left that’s safe to eat. And, in the meantime, we are having such a good time at these shows, fiddling while Rome burns…so a lot of these songs [on Big Boat] kind of allude to that."

Only a small number of artists have performed over 50 shows at Madison Square Garden, including Elton John, Billy Joel and the Grateful Dead, the band's publicist pointed out in a press release. Tickets are on sale through the Phish website now through Sunday, February 12th at 11:59 p.m. ET. Remaining tickets go on sale to the general public beginning February 17th at noon ET.
