Local news: Eagles headline mega-country tour; Two nights of Phish; Virgin Mobile FreeFest returns
- First, in sure-to-be expensive concert news: A country super-triple-bill checks into Nationals Park on Tuesday, June 15 as the The Eagles headline a show that will also feature the Dixie Chicks (not broken up, apparently) and Keith Urban. All three acts are arena-worthy headliners on their own, so it makes sense that it takes a stadium to hold the trio. You've got a while to wait until tickets go on sale - March 29, 10 a.m. Expect the best seats to reach triple-digits.
- Phish's triumphant reunion tour makes a two-night stop at Merriweather Post Pavilion on June 26 and 27. The last time Phish played Merriweather it was the single fastest sellout in venue history. So even though there are two shows this time around, don't expect tickets to last much more than an hour. Again, you've got a while until they go on sale - April 2 in this case - so sell some extra patchouli and you should be good to go.
- And in free concert news, the Virgin Mobile FreeFest will once again return to Merriweather Post Pavilion. No word on when and who - just free. But that's a pretty good first bit of info to know. Can we throw out some completely unfounded predictions on headliners? Why not?! Stone Temple Pilots, Limp Bizkit, Wu-Tang Clan. Please let us hope we are wrong.
