A concert in Glens Falls last night has some saying the small city can play host to other large entertainment events in the future, which could be key to the area’s economic development.

The rock band Phish returned to the Glens Falls Civic Center for the first time since a legendary 1994 Halloween concert Wednesday. The sellout brought thousands of fans to the Warren County city. About 7,500 tickets were sold. From nearby Vermont, Phish has a passionate following in the region, playing several Saratoga Springs concerts in recent years as well.
