For fans unable to catch them in Vegas, the group is also currently in the midst of an extensive fall tour. For more information or ticketing for Pink Talking Fish’s upcoming two-night run in Las Vegas, or to check out a full list of upcoming dates, head to the band’s website here. For those unfamiliar, Pink Talking Fish is a hybrid tribute act that melds the music of Phish, Talking Heads, and Pink Floyd. With these three bands as inspiration, PTF fuses and intertwines songs from each bands’ catalogs to create a musical cocktail sound unlike any other. With an emphasis on storytelling, Pink Talking Fish offers the funky grooves of Talking Heads, the epic emotion of Pink Floyd, and the high-energy jamming and unique compositional structures of Phish—making for fun, high-energy, fan-focused shows.This fall, Pink Talking Fish will head to Las Vegas, where they’ll perform two shows to cap off the night for fans in town for Phish’s highly anticipated and beloved Halloween run. Scheduled for November 1st and 2nd, these upcoming Pink Talking Fish shows will be hosted by Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, located in the heart of Las Vegas, less than a mile away from Phish’s venue at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.For the first night of the run, on November 1st, Pink Talking Fish will perform their “PTF Is Bowie” concept, which combines the music of Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, Phish, and David Bowie. This show will specifically celebrate Phish’s own tribute to David Bowie during their 2016 Halloween show, where they performed The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars in its entirety for their traditional “costume set.”On November 2nd, Pink Talking Fish will commemorate the 20-year anniversary of Phish’s impromptu performance of Dark Side Of The Moon. After a Las Vegas Halloween Run in 1998, Phish played West Valley City, Utah, on November 2nd, 1998, to a half-full “E” Center arena. Many fans on tour chose to skip the out-of-the-way show, so the band treated the lean audience that did make it to a full rendition of Pink Floyd’s 1973 album, Dark Side Of The Moon, sandwiched in the middle of “Harpua”. To this day, fans still regret high-tailing it to Denver and skipping the infamous Utah ’98 show.
