By The Numbers: Phish Return to Alpine Valley, Deer Creek As Part Of 2012 Summer Tour

Posted on February 29th, 2012 by steve in The Blog

After bypassing both of these Midwest sheds last summer, Phish will make it up to fans in Chicago (and surrounding areas) this summer with four shows total at two venues featured prominently in Phish history.  Yes, Deer Creek is now known as Klipsch Music Center, but I’ll never call it by a corporate sponsor’s name.

6/28/12 Klipsch Music Center, Noblesville, IN
6/29/12 Klipsch Music Center, Noblesville, IN
6/30/12 Alpine Valley Music Center, East Troy, WI
7/1/12 Alpine Valley Music Center, East Troy, WI
All tickets $60.00 GA Pit and Reserved $45.00 GA Lawn and available for Internet pre-order here

Incidentally, camping was approved for the first time in many moons at Alpine last year — though limited to 75 sites in the green lot.  This would be the first time that a Phish show was eligible for this feature — we’ll see if it gets approved.  As we prepare for a summer trek back to East Troy and Noblesville, have a looks at some of the numbers behind the band’s previous visits to these sheds.

2009 – only year with more Alpine shows than Deer Creek (2 vs. 1)
1995 – only year with a show at Deer Creek with no Alpine show
50 – % of time that each venue has been “first” on the tour docket
