Phish Heads rejoice! WXRT has announced that the legendary jam band will play two shows at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin on June 30 and July 1. I guess that means that annual rumor of a Phish show at Wrigley Field has been proven false again. Hey, remember when Phish "disbanded" in 2004? That did last long. Four years, to be precise.

Well, Phans will surely phlock north this summer, so grab your tickets fast. Tickets go on XRT VIP Presale on Thursday, March 15 at 10 a.m. Phish is also selling a limited number of tickets through their fansite. Regular sale starts Friday at noon through Ticketmaster. You could also try to win a pair of tickets through WXRT. Tickets are $60 for general admission pit and $45 for reserved lawn seats.

If you're the type to phollow the tour cross-country, the band created the video below to promote all tour dates.
