Jam band history of Phish at Madison Square Garden (MSG)

For almost three decades Phish has been jamming in New York City's Madison Square Garden (MSG) or The Garden.

Diehard fans (phans) have an annual ritual of bringing in the New Year seeing Phish aka #PhishNYE.

What makes the concert is extra fun is the location, being in mid-town New York, just blocks from where the New Years Ball is dropped, and how you don't even notice it. The location also lets phans to pregame at art museums, breweries, famous locations and restaurants and then find afterparties and late night concerts throughout the city.   

How many times has Phish played in MSG?

Phish has played 73 concerts in MSG with the first show being on Dec. 30th 1994.

Below is some of the art that was created to celebrate their MSG concerts.
