Action 3D Productions, AEG Network Live and Cinedigm, announced the initial list of cities that will debut Phish 3D on Friday, April 30th. The fully immersive music and visual experience, featuring state-of-the-art 3D technology, will screen for one week only in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, Philadelphia and dozens more cities nationwide. Tickets went on sale today.
Phish 3D is also being shown at special April 20th preview screenings in nine select U.S. cities. Tickets to the preview screenings sold out in less than an hour in Boston, Burlington, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Raleigh/Durham, and Washington D.C., necessitating a move to larger theaters. To fulfill fan demand, Phish 3D will return to all nine markets for the official debut screenings on April 30th.
Shot in October 2009 at the band’s now-legendary Festival 8, Phish 3D gives viewers the sense that they are not only at the event, but on stage with the group that Entertainment Weekly has called “the biggest cult band in America.” During Festival 8, more than 40,000 devoted fans watched as Phish combined two of their most beloved traditions — the multi-day festival and the Halloween album “costume.” The band’s highly anticipated “musical costumes” are concerts involving the performance of an entire album by another artist—in this case, Phish covered the Rolling Stones’ album Exile on Main St. Phish 3D also features fan favorites, never-before-seen cover songs, intimate footage of the band backstage and in rehearsals, songs from the band’s first ever full-length acoustic set, and performances taken from six additional sets of music.
A full list of screening markets, as well as specific theater ticketing information for the April 30th opening of Phish 3D, will be made available at www.phish3dmovie.com.
Phish will kick off an extensive summer tour on June 11th at Toyota Park in Chicago, IL. For tour details, visit phish.com.
