The crowd cheers as Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin speaks before Phish performs during their benefit concert at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, Vt, on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2011. Proceeds will benefit the people of Vermont impacted by Hurricane Irene. The band, which first began playing in Burlington in the early 1980s, hasn't held a concert in the state since 2004, when members put on a show to celebrate their break-up.
