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.

Can't wait to see all the trash left behind.
Oh joy.... more Midwest broke ass people, who somehow can afford tickets and drugs, must be elated....
