I am happy to share the first of many tickets and prints I have created for Phish’s 2022 summer tour! I had decided early this year that I wanted to create ticket stubs due to tickets going digital for most shows. This was upsetting to many people (myself included) who collected ticket stubs, especially the Phish Tickets By Mail (PTBM) stubs, which always featured amazing artwork.
I had previously created tickets for the April MSG Run, but it was a last-minute creation, based on the poster I had created. For the summer artwork, the tickets were the focus of the composition of the images. I originally planned to make available an uncut sheet version of the tickets, but later opted to create 11×14 prints using the artwork.
Tickets and prints are now available in my shop! I plan to continue creating setlist art as well!
You can feel good about an MSG run, especially in April! I just finished these setlists up. For the headers, I used my ticket stub designs, which are also available in my shop. Scan the barcode to link to the setlist on phish.net! I plan to create stubs for summer tour as well!
First Setlist art of the year! I’m excited to be at it again, with some small changes and new artwork! I’ll be making these prints available as a set of four 8.5 x 11 prints. You can purchase prints here: Phish Riviera Maya 2022
This show featured two bustouts: Peaches en Regalia, which was performed for the first time since July 22, 2017 (138 shows), and The Maker, which was performed for the first time since October 15, 1994 (997 shows). So Damn Lucky also made its Phish debut at this show. Tweezer contained Freddie’s Dead teases from Trey and The Lizards teases from Trey and Page. Trey teased Tweezer in Soul Planet and Tube.

Trey asked Chris Kuroda to turn off the lights during the pause in Divided Sky, and said “don’t shine that thing in my face.” Sleeping Monkey was dedicated to their hosts and the beautiful beings that welcomed Phish to their home and contained a Shipwreck quote.
