The 2017 Pink Talking Fish Fall Tour has been revealed and it’s action packed!  The tour will focus on the Eastern Seaboard along with brief stops in Colorado, the midwest and Canada.  PTF will also be presenting two very special concept runs in October.

First up is “Pink Talking Fish Starts Making Sense” – an evening of nonstop live music performance featuring intertwining sets from Pink Talking Fish & the beloved Talking Heads Tribute band “Start Making Sense”.  Expect full band segues and other exciting collaboration between the bands.

Next up is Halloween weekend where PTF will debut a new concept called ”Phishbills”.  The 2 set show will involve one set of PTF classic combinations and one set filled with material from Phish’s Halloween Costume Sets such as The Beatles White Album, Talking Heads Remain In Light, The Velvet Underground’s Loaded, Phish’s Fuego and more.

The tour caps off with Pink Talking Fish’s annual multi-night run in Columbus OH, which has become an end of Fall Holiday staple for the band.

Pink Talking Fish had an epic performance at The Peach Music Festival this past weekend, where the band performed “Pink Talking Fish Eats A Peach” – a full rendition of The Allman Brothers classic album ‘Eat A Peach’ with Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads & Phish songs intertwined through the album cuts.
