Phish Announces Four NYE Shows in Miami

One does not simply like Phish.

Phish Heads are some of the most dedicated fans in the world. There's just something about this jam band that works white people into a frothy, goofy-dance mess. Even those who aren't that familiar with Trey Anastasio and crew have tales of losing themselves in the music, maaan.

So if you're a huge Phish fan and you live in Miami, do the "Meatstick" dance. Because just like in 2009, the Vermont-based cult band is coming to the American Airlines Arena to perform on New Year's Eve -- and then again for the next three days in a row.

The man in the dark hat is coming to town.

He used to prefer candy cane colors. But these days, former White Stripes frontman Jack White almost never wears any shade beside black and white upon his back.

It's all part of his latest elaborately art-directed, conceptually rigorous blues-rock solo album, Lazaretto, which he's taking on the road for a fall trek. The record debuted at number one on the charts. And the tour will travel from Louisville, Kentucky, to his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, before stopping for a two-night stand at the Fillmore Miami Beach.

Just check the cut for Jack White's North American show schedule.
