This summer, Phish performed The Baker's Dozen, a milestone 13-show run at Madison Square Garden held over 17 nights this summer. Phish performed 26 unique sets featuring a grand total of 237 songs with not one repeated during the three-week run. The Baker's Dozen - available now on CD or high quality download exclusively at livephish.com - The Baker's Dozen earned accolades from a wide array of national publications. "What I saw," wrote The New York Times' Ben Ratliff, "was a purposeful band in energetic form, better than I've seen and heard recently, more willing to let songs assume their own proportions, and going far into its own catalog." Rolling Stone singled out myriad magical moments from "All 13 Blissful Nights," noting "The Baker's Dozen was one of most ambitious seasons of Phish in years: three weeks' worth of twist-filled musical episodes for an engaged fanbase and onlookers wondering if it's too late to get in on the joke." "The Baker's Dozen has proven to be one of Phish's most elaborate and amusing experiments ever," enthused Esquire. "It's the band in Peak Wonka Mode, and it couldn't be more fun-which just so happens to be the group's reason for being." "The Baker's Dozen isn't the first time Phish has defied logic," noted The Huffington Post. "It'll keep fans guessing how this veteran band - or anyone - can possibly top it."

Phish recently wrapped summer 2017 tour with their annual trio of sold out Labor Day shows at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO.
