Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation will host a pre-show celebration ahead of the band’s December 30 show at Madison Square Garden as a part oft their New Year’s run.
Tickets for the event will go on sale Friday with proceeds set to benefit the Tortola Relief Fund. All information is available here.
Tortola is an island that was severely damaged by Hurricane Irma and is also a place that Trey Anastasio has visited a number of times over the years. He detailed his connection with the island in a statement on the band’s website following the storm.
“I love Tortola,” Anastasio said. “I’ve written many song there. It’s where I’ve gone in the winter to slow down, write and to bring new song ideas to completion. Songs that were born as little germs of ideas elsewhere, often were crafted and came to life in Tortola.”
