Phish set to release DVD of 1997 live show

The Vermont jam legends, on the heels of rumors of a possible reunion, is going to release a new live DVD.

According to Phish's Web site:

On July 22, 1997, Phish performed the second show of their U.S. summer tour at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, NC through a torrent of rain, thunder and lightning related to Hurricane Danny. Rather than cancel the gig, the band played on with the music mirroring the peaks in the storm's intensity. 1997 was a particularly fertile period in the band's creativity onstage, as exemplified at Walnut Creek. Phish's own JEMP Records is proud to offer the complete Walnut Creek show on DVD, in stores everywhere August 5. Phish's first full concert DVD since 2006's acclaimed Live In Brooklyn set, Walnut Creek features more than 2 hours of 5-camera footage in 5.1 Dolby Surround or optional stereo sound on two DVDs.


Phish's youtube channel has a few clips from the upcoming DVD.
