Phish Fans Act Entitled

I just want to point out that this year the Phish community as a whole seems to feel very entitled to get tour dates as far in advance as possible. I know a lot of fans are getting older and are more organized and plan further out than in the past, but with getting older the fan base also seems to have lost its memory. 

Phish has announced summer tour dates before March 3 only three times since 1992. So 86% of the time you wouldn’t and shouldn’t have dates by now. 

1992: Summer Europe 5/17/1992 

1993: Summer U.S. 5/6/1993 

1994: Summer U.S. 4/29/1994 

1995: Summer U.S. 3/16/1995 

1996: Summer U.S. 4/19/1996 

1997: Summer U.S. & Europe 3/15/1997 

1998: Summer Europe 3/14/1998 U.S. 3/19/1998 

1999: Summer U.S. 3/19/1999 

2000: Summer U.S. 3/3/2000 

2003: Summer U.S. 3/24/2003 

2004: Summer U.S. 4/13/2004 

2009: Summer U.S. (Leg 1) 1/8/2009 

2010: Summer U.S. (Leg 1) 3/15/2010 

2011: Summer U.S. (Leg 1) 2/22/2011 

2012: Summer U.S. (Leg 1) 2/29/2012

Perspective is important. As it always is with Phish. All tour announcement history available via The Barn Presents.
