Okay, gonna go out on a limb here and say that tix for these dates are probably going to sell out in a little more than the time it takes to read this item: We just learned that Phish -- hot on the heels of a pair of well-received dates in Telluride -- is planning to kick off its upcoming fall tour by playing three back-to-back dates at the 1STBANK Center at the beginning of October on Sunday, October 10, Monday, October 11 and Tuesday, October 12, respectively. And if that's not enough incentive for you, the band is going to be hooking ticket holders up with downloads of each show via its website. Tickets go on sale on Saturday, September 11 at noon.
