These 'phans' saw Phish play 13 times in a row



Phish just finished a run of 13 shows in New York City titled "The Baker's Dozen" and these four "phans" went to every one.

The concerts took place at Madison Square Garden, a venue that has become a second home for the legendary jam band from Vermont.

Phish have played there 52 times, the exact same amount that their genre-defining predecessors the Grateful Dead have.

Much like the Dead's fans, Phish fanatics are known to be obsessive about seeing the band play as many times as possible, sometimes hitting the road and following them on tour for months at a time.

It's subsequently no surprise that some diehards stuck it out for all 13 of "The Baker's Dozen" shows, seeing a total of about 39 hours - or nearly a traditional work week - of music.

Concert goers seemed enthusiastic about the quality of the run, as the band didn't repeat a song once, debuted news ones, played plenty of fan-favorite covers, and sprinkled in references (pun intended) to the flavor of doughnut that were handed out for free every night at the door.

For instance, they played "Strawberry Fields Forever" on strawberry doughnut night, and performed particularly long, meandering versions of songs on jam-filled doughnut night.

Phish's residency at the famed venue seemed to be heaven for every "phan."

It's not the first time, and it probably won't be the last, that Phish has featured food at the Garden.
