Back in December I mentioned a rumor that Phish could reunite at the Wachovia Spectrum on Halloween 2006.  Well Trey Anastasio is in town to play a solo show at the Electric Factory (Wednesday night) in support of his latest effort Bar 17.  Last Thursday’s Inquirer talked to him about the new album.  I found the final quote interesting:

Bar 17 is an elegant and serious album. Yet dare him to pick a
date for a Phish reunion – an event the group’s devoted fan base craves
- and Anastasio is back to teasing: "Dec. 23, 2006. Wachovia Spectrum.
I want to do it where the Flyers won the Stanley Cup."

Trey is a known Flyers fan and Phish has performed the national anthem at multiple Flyers games.  They have ties to former Flyer John LeClair who is
a Univeristy of Vermont alum.

The photo above features Trey on the right with Martin St. Louis holding up Lord Stanley’s Cup.  It’s from a 2004 private party with The Samples along with Phish.
