Briefly: Jim James Tells Rolling Stone MMJ Aiming to Play New Year’s Eve in Boston Because Phish Has A Lock on MSG
While Phish hasn’t revealed where (if?) they will play for New Year’s this year, a tip from My Morning Jacket front man Jim James puts the NYE Run back at Madison Square Garden in New York City. James told Rolling Stone associate editor Andy Greene that MMJ is “close to finalizing” a New Years Eve gig in Boston because “Phish booked MSG for, like, the next 4 years.”
Nothing’s confirmed until its posted on Phish.com, but we tend to believe Jim James. We’ll keep our eyes out for My Morning Jacket’s NYE show announcement as well.
