Tickets for Phish’s Halloween event in Las Vegas go on sale tomorrow

It was a loud, sweat dripping carnival of flesh, “Big Lebowski” costumes and guitar solos that approximated the squeal of an imperiled tabby cat.

The last time free-range rockers Phish played Vegas on Halloween in 2014, it was one of the best shows of the year, a feel-good freak out that registered as one of the most overstuffed, awesomely overblown spectacles ever to blast retinas and ear holes alike at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Earlier this month, the band broke news of their return to Vegas for their third Halloween engagement here, following the aforementioned stop and a 1998 gig at the Thomas & Mack Center, with four shows at the MGM Grand from Oct. 28-31.

Now, they’ve announced when tickets for said concerts will go on sale: noon Thursday at AXS.com for $65 for both reserved and general admission.

Phish’s Halloween gigs are the stuff of legend: during each one, the band dons a “musical costume” and covers an album in its entirety during one of their multiple sets. In ‘98, Phish played the Velvet Underground’s “Loaded.” In 2014, they dressed at the undead and reinterpreted venerable Disney sound effects novelty “Chilling Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House.”

What will they cover this year?

The countdown to find out begins tomorrow.
