Phish To Release Amsterdam 8-Disc Box Set On Tuesday, June 16th June 11, 2015 14:21
This Tuesday, June 16, Phish will release Amsterdam, a brand new eight-CD box set featuring three complete shows (February 17, July 1-2) recorded live at Paradiso in the Netherlands in 1997. The shows have been fully mixed and mastered from the band's multitracks. In 1997 Phish played Paradiso on February 17 and returned to the famed Dutch venue on July 1st and 2nd for the renowned "Back of the Worm" shows. February 17th marked the debut of "Carini." The three appearances mark the only time Phish has played Paradiso.
The new box is in stock now and shipping from Phish Dry Goods. The three shows on the Amsterdam box, the only Phish shows to-date at Paradiso, combine to deliver the full impact of a shared peak experience in an exotic locale seamlessly integrated and sizzling with creative intensity.
