Phish Float Donated To Rock Hall

Band used hot-dog float during millennium event.

The hot-dog float that carried Phish to the stage during their

New Year's Eve festival in Florida last week will be donated to the

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, according to the band's publicists. The

float will hang in the hall's atrium. The Burlington, Vt.,

improvisational band rode the float over the crowd of 75,000 at Big

Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation before playing the eight-hour

marathon set that ended the Dec. 30–31 event. The shows grossed

$11.6 million, according to the trade magazine Pollstar, making

it the highest-grossing millennium event in the United States. The

band also used the hot-dog float at a show at the Boston Garden on

Dec. 31, 1994.
