Back in December I mentioned a rumor that Phish could reunite at the Wachovia Spectrum on Halloween 2006. Well Trey Anastasio is in town to play a solo show at the Electric Factory (Wednesday night) in support of his latest effort Bar 17. Last Thursday's Inquirer talked to him about the new album. I found the final quote interesting:
Bar 17 is an elegant and serious album. Yet dare him to pick a
date for a Phish reunion - an event the group's devoted fan base craves
- and Anastasio is back to teasing: "Dec. 23, 2006. Wachovia Spectrum.
I want to do it where the Flyers won the Stanley Cup."
Trey is a known Flyers fan and Phish has performed the national anthem at multiple Flyers games. They have ties to former Flyer John LeClair who is
a Univeristy of Vermont alum.
The photo above features Trey on the right with Martin St. Louis holding up Lord Stanley's Cup. It's from a 2004 private party with The Samples along with Phish.
