Phish- Bader Field Details....Finally! (The Freezer...are you kidding me?!?!?)
Let's keep it real, up til now Phish has been kinda mum on the details about their quasi-festival 3 night run at Atlantic City's Bader Field. We now have the skinny on what will be offered at the venue in addition to Phish performing 3 full shows, 3 nights in a row. The highlight of it all has to be the introduction of "The Freezer", a time-capsule of Phish posters and tee's and other merch. All original pressings and going back to 1995...I for one would love to get my hands on a Europe '97 Summer Tee/Poster and that hard-to-find Udder Ball Poster from NYE '97 @ MSG.
Updates From The Field
Phish will perform three consecutive nights (June 15th, 16th and 17th) at Atlantic City's 142-acre Bader Field. Centrally located on the Eastern seaboard, Atlantic City offers a wide range of attractions, beaches, and the city's historic boardwalk. Here are some updates from Bader Field. Three-day and single day tickets are available now. Tickets for Friday's show will be available online or charge by phone until June 15 at Noon EST. Saturday tickets will be available in advance until Noon on Saturday and Sunday tickets will be available in advance until (you guessed it) Sunday at Noon. Once advance sales are closed for online and phone purchases, tickets will be available only at the venue box office on site, and prices will increase. Doors open at 5PM and lots at 2PM. More info, including ticketing info can be found at baderfield2012.phish.com.
STEP INTO THE FREEZER
For the first time ever, we're opening the doors to The Freezer, an official Phish Archive merch store, at Bader Field. The Freezer will feature a number of shirts, hard goods and posters from Phish's past, available for purchase. All are original items from the band's collection, and not reprints. They include items from 1995-2000 and are extremely limited (we're talking 4-5 of each style). The WaterWheel Foundation will be the recipient of a percentage of all sales in The Freezer. Everything in The Freezer has been archivally stored and preserved. In addition to Ts, we'll be offering a very limited number of rare posters from the Phish Archives (again, all part of their original runs; NOT reprints), including posters from Phish's 97 & 98 Europe Tours, Madison Square Garden 98-99 and 97-98, Halloween 98 and others. These posters will be available in very limited quantities and we're expecting them to go fast. We'll also have a very limited number of Junta on vinyl available at The Freezer (from the original RSD pressing of 5,000).
The WaterWheel Foundation will celebrate their 15th year on tour this Summer. Since 1997 the foundation has donated nearly $1 million dollars to non-profit organizations across the country. At Bader Field, WaterWheel will team up with Ben & Jerry's to offer free scoops of Phish Food as well as a display of the history of Phish food including the progression of the pint's packaging to special event Ts. A special reprint of the original t-shirts celebrating the Flynn Theatre concert launch of the ice cream flavor will be available for a donation. In addition WaterWheel will once again be holding a special auction for a chance to win one of two custom painted Vespa Scooters, prepped and donated by the Hippie Shop. The auction will continue throughout the summer tour.
BEERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!
Years of marketing research and focus groups have revealed that Phish fans, given a choice of a wide variety of beverage options, often choose a fermented concoction made from cereal grains. The Beers of the World tent will be back at Bader Field with over 50 different kinds of beer available. Of note is the return of Sierra Nevada's FOAM, a special pilsner brewed specifically for Phish events.
