Reader: How Much Trash Will Phish Heads Leave Behind?

It's not exactly a shocker that Phish is coming back to Colorado for a three-night stand at Dick's Sporting Goods Arena this summer. Nor is it surprising that jam-band fans are elated.

Lambert writes:

Can't wait to see all the trash left behind. 

Steven adds: 

Oh joy.... more Midwest broke ass people, who somehow can afford tickets and drugs, must be elated....

Ben chimes in:

It would be more of an announcement if they didn't play these dates...
