Phish Reunites, Gets Tough On Scalpers

Jam giants Phish will play three shows in Hampton, Va., next March, the group’s first concerts in four and a half years. The shows take place March 6, 7, and 8; tickets are only $49.50 and available for pre-order now (one wonders how long it’ll take before this pre-order results in all three shows selling out, as the venue holding the show has a capacity of 13,800, although it would seem that more shows are on the way as well). Take note, burgeoning capitalists: if you think you’re going to pay the relatively cheap face value and pick up a few tickets, then flip them to your local university’s Ultimate Frisbee team for a profit, you’d be mistaken!

Phish Tickets has a zero tolerance for scalping and insists that all patrons of our service abide by our policy stated herein. Tickets made available through this site are intended only for fans who are actually planning on attending the shows requested. It is strictly prohibited to resell any tickets obtained through Phish Tickets for more than the purchase price. If you are found to be reselling, trading or brokering tickets that you purchased through our site for profit, Phish Tickets may at its discretion cancel your ticket order and all other pending orders in your name. This cancellation will result in a refund of the total price for the tickets minus a $7.00 per ticket processing fee and any shipping fees that have been incurred with respect to the order. We reserve the right to investigate all orders suspected to be in violation of this policy.

We urge you not to purchase tickets through brokers or “scalpers.” These tickets may be counterfeit in which case you will not only be overcharged but will also likely be denied entry into the show.
