Los Angeles, CA- The atmosphere was heady at the press conference called today by musicians Trey Anastasio and Tommy Shaw, where they confirmed the rumors that had been floating around for weeks: the worldwide Phish-Styx tour was on.

“We had been talking with Mick Jagger about touring with him,” said Styx member Tommy Shaw, “but the Stones wanted top billing, and that just wouldn’t have worked. So after those negotiations fell through, I gave Trey a call the very next day. He was very open to the idea of touring together.”

“Yeah man, I totally grokked the idea,” drawled Phish front man, Trey Anastasio. “Our music styles are so incompatible that it was bound to happen sooner or later. After the nation watched Britney Spears perform ‘Walk This Way’ with Aerosmith during last year’s Super Bowl half-time show, I knew that a combined Phish-Styx tour was the next logical step.”

The tour is scheduled to start during the summer of 2002, and is being sponsored by Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s. It is rumored that the Gorton’s Fisherman himself might be in attendance on the opening night of the tour.
