Jam giants Phish will kick off its summer tour on June 11 in Chicago at Toyota Park.

An “online ticket request period” is currently underway at, ending on Friday, March 26. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 2.

Phish had been one of the bands rumored to be playing Wrigley Field this summer; Elton John and Billy Joel were another, but they were ruled out a few weeks ago. That leaves Paul McCartney and Dave Matthews still in the Wrigley rumor mill.

Two additional Phish shows announced: Saturday and Sunday, August 14 and 15, at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI. Tickets on sale Saturday, April 3 at 10 a.m.
