The following Phish shows were either cancelled or postponed:
10/26/85 - Phish unable to play, see show notes.
8/25/88 - Cancelled, due to inclement weather.
4/1/90 - Listed in the Phish Update with note "call hotline", but apparently never transpired.
3/16/91 - See above.
11/5/91 - Cancelled, due to possible issue with venue's roof.
7/19/93 - Cancelled, allegedly due to low ticket sales.
7/2/96 - Rained out, though Phish later played with Santana on that date.
8/17/18, 8/18/18, 8/19/18 - These shows comprised the Curveball Festival. The festival was cancelled due to concerns over water turbidity and an accompanying boil water notice in the greater Watkins Glen area.
Several other shows have been lacking full personnel but continued anyway.
Trey was responsible for the “Guitar Player Taking a Leak” jam at Laguna Seca Daze in on 5/29/94, although the band covered with a funny little ditty in classic Phish humor followed by a smoking two-song second encore.
Fishman, having gone missing on a bear-scared acid trip (as told later in that show in “Run Like an Antelope” and in the "bear story" 3/17/91), was not present for sets one and two of 7/30/88, leaving the others to tool around in a Jazz Odyssey with Trey on drums.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
