The rock band Phish has chosen to play a millennium gig in Hawaii instead of returning to the former Loring Air Force Base for a consecutive year, an official said.


The president of the Loring Development Authority said he received word from David Werlin, president of the Boston-based Great Northeast Productions, which promoted the Phish concerts in Maine.

The band will play a two-or three day festival in Hawaii instead of playing in Limestone, said Brian Hamel.

The move had been rumored but officials insisted up until Wednesday that no formal decision had been made.
