Phish To Release UIC Pavilion 1994 Shows as Chicago ’94

The latest Phish vault release has been revealed on ADA Music and it looks amazing. On July 31, the band will put out Chicago ’94 featuring the famed June 18, 1994 and November 25, 1994 performances at the UIC Pavilion. All in all Chicago ’94 contains 6 CDs worth of music remastered by Fred Kevorkian. This marks the first Phish archival release from the legendary year of 1994 since 2005.

In addition to every note from both shows, as recorded by Paul Languedoc, Chicago ’94 will include material from the soundchecks as well as new artwork from Jim Pollock. While a soundboard recording from 6/18/94 has circulated for years, this will be the first time soundboard-sourced recordings of 11/25/94 will find their way into fans’ hands, plus as mentioned this edition will be remastered.

Here’s the setlists from both shows…

    Couldn’t possibly have imagined a better release! Cannot wait for this. That June show’s second set is top shelf reserve Phish.

    I am really looking forward to this. I was at the 1994/06/16 show at the State Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Check out the Antelope from that show. Smokin’!
