Who Played in Maine the Most? Phish or The Grateful Dead
Someone took the time to map out every gig these two bands played in North America. Who do you think played in Maine the most?
Seth Kadish and Jonn Rosen have a lot of free time as they created infographics comparing the two jam bands touring schedule. They compared the bands gigs over a 30 year span. The Dead data spans 1965-1995, while Phish' spans 1983-2013.
According to the data The Grateful Dead played over 2,300 concerts while Phish played just shy of 1,600. Even though Phish played less gigs, they showed Maine love with 47 shows! The Dead stopped by 26 times.
