Whew. We've been worried there might be a conflict between the summer 2011 Phish dates and the "Glee" cast tour, but it appears they'll never been in the same market.

....

Really, though. Get ready to unfurl your favorite woven hoodie and pack your least conspicuous smoking apparatus, because Phish is hitting the road this June. The band announced dates for the first leg of its American tour, and East Coasters should mark March 12 in their calendars. That's the day tickets go on sale.

Live Nation starts the sale at 12 p.m. ET, and spots are going for $60 in the pavilion level and $45 for lawn. Fans especially eager can register on the Phish website for a ticket request system between now and March 4.
