Calling all Phish fans! Catch the band’s co-founder and bassist, Mike Gordon, and his band as they play tunes from his sixth solo album, “Flying Games,” released last month. The tour kicks off in Portland, then hits 10 other cities before winding down in Gordon’s hometown of Burlington, Vermont. Although born in Massachusetts, Gordon’s musical fate was sealed when he met Trey Anastasio, Jon Fishman and Jeff Holdsworth as students at the University of Vermont four decades ago. Phish released 16 albums.
