Fresh off their triumphant three-night stand at Indio, California’s Festival 8, the reunited Phish have announced plans to play their first New Year’s Eve concert since 2003 when they take over Miami’s American Airlines Arena for a four-night residency December 28th-31st. The New Year’s Eve show will be a three-set extravaganza at the same Miami arena where Phish and their Phans last rung in the New Year together six years ago. Phish also celebrated the dawn of the new millennium in the Sunshine State with a festival in Big Cypress, Florida on December 30th and 31st, 1999.

The online ticket request period for Phish’s Miami shows is going on right now over at the band’s official website, with the public onsale date scheduled for November 21st. As Rolling Stone reported from Indio two weekends ago, Phish resurrected an old Halloween tradition by performing another artist’s album—in this year’s case, the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street—in its entirety. The Vermont foursome followed that October 31st performance with their first-ever acoustic set the very next day.

Before they usher in 2010 in Florida, Phish will embark on a fall tour starting November 18th in Detroit. The trek will also include a three-night sold-out stand at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Check out all the Phish dates below:
