HenryHolland Lots of shows don't sell out . there were hundreds of free tickets all over the place at Hampton 2013.

The prime example of that from my neck of the woods (California) is the Santa Barbara shows in 2014. The SB Bowl holds about 4,500 people, tickets for both shows sold out really quickly and were going for big prices on StubHub etc. Day of the show, plenty of tickets on the ground because a chunk of the tickets were snapped up by Ticketmaster bots and others hoping for a big resale. Um, no, Phish crowds don't work that way.

They need to scale back the venues they play to more realistic levels based on their current selling power, not what it was in 1999. I for one would love to see them at a 6,000 seater over two nights rather than one night at a basketball arena.
