Phish has announced a New Year’s Eve livestream concert to make up for the band’s postponed New Year’s run at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, which was pushed back due to surging COVID-19 cases driven by the Omicron variant.

The virtual event, which will consist of three full sets, will premiere December 31 at 8:30 p.m. ET. You can watch for free via the Phish YouTube channel or on LivePhish.com.

The show will be part of Phish’s ongoing Dinner and a Movie streaming series, which also provides unique food recipes for those watching. The NYE’s meal will be lemon-themed, and includes recipes for a whole roasted chicken with lemon, a vegetarian lemon pasta, and lemon bars for dessert.

The Dinner and a Movie series has also been raising money for various non-profit organizations amid the pandemic through the band’s WaterWheel Foundation.
