Mike Gordon, bassist for Phish, announced on Tuesday afternoon that his summer solo tour will kick off at the Charleston Music Hall on June 5.

Pit and first-floor tickets are on pre-sale until Thursday for $29.50. General tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

Neither Phish nor any of its members have played in the Charleston area since a rare performance at the North Charleston Coliseum in October 2010.

Gordon’s show in Charleston is one of two in the Southeast, the other in Atlanta, during the month-long string of solo shows. Phish’s summer tour kicks off in Bend, Oregon in late July.
