    In a surprise announcement Phil Lesh and Friends postponed their Halloween run at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. We had learned back in late August that Lesh had to have some minor back surgery, as announced on his facebook page, “This past weekend we learned that Phil needs to have a minor back surgery. Per his Doctor’s orders, he will need some time to rest and rehabilitate.”

    The Capitol Theatre made their announcement today regarding the postponement, “Phil’s surgery was a success and we are working with Phil to reschedule the shows and will announce new dates as soon as we can.” Tickets will be honored to the original Lesh dates for the rescheduled shows. Customers who instead wish to get a reund those are also available at point of purchase.

    Dark Star Orchestra has stepped in to fill Lesh’s big shoes, and will be performing those three nights. Tickets are to go onsale on October 15th for those shows and will be available at the following links:
