COVENTRY, Vt. (AP) – The rock band Phish could be bringing its tunes to this Northeast Kingdom town.

Representatives of the band’s production company say the group is considering having a concert in midsummer.

Coventry Selectman Michael Marcotte said the group is looking at the Newport State Airport as a potential venue.

Marcotte said there are a few hurdles to clear before plans for a possible concert can move ahead.

“We want to look at public safety and whether the neighbors are OK with it, because they will be inconvenienced for a little while,” Marcotte said.

But he said the concert would benefit the area.

“It would be the biggest thing this part of the state has ever seen. Not just Coventry, but all of Orleans (County) and some of Caledonia would benefit from it.”
