Ok so the "source" may be as shit as good but anyway. The link is again PT (http://www.phantasytour.com/phish/boards_thread.cgi?threadID=2119093) and different sounds can be heard.
The first post is about no Spring tour in Europe. Only a Trey solo in february then a Phish summer tour in the US.
A page furthur, someone else says that his source has confirmed the Europe spring tour and that it will be announed between the 5th december and Miami (when the band isn't on tour). But this time, the dates would be mid-March through early April to match the spring break so that members family could come too.
Another guy even wrote from-his-mind dates for a tour that would end in Dubaï on April 1st !
I'm also sad to read some things like "I hope they won't spoil a tour in Europe" or "I hope it isn't true because I can't afford the trip to Europe"... Please think about the few european fans who can't afford a trip to the US to see their favorite band :(
The fun here is that I could make a new tread and tell that I have a inside source in several tour management in Europe and give bull shit dates. I'm pretty sure if I write the stuf well enough it would make the round over the Internet in less than a day !
This to say that these are only rumors and I'll book flights and hotels only when the dates are on Phish.com.
My only request is to avoid a Europe tour between 21th and 31th April 2010 because I'll be in Morocco...

I spoke about my money saving several times but on the other hand, I have to plan how much would it cost to attend all 10 rumored shows over a course of 13 days.
I won't count the travels for now.
- So 10 tickets : 10 x 30€ (average price for a not-so-famous-in-Europe band) = 300€
- Food for 13 days : 13 x 20€ = 260 €
- Hostel or somewhere to sleep for 13 nights (even if I might rest in my brother's in Paris or have a home break in Lyon between Barcelona and Paris) :
13 x 50€ = 650 €
- Souvenir, T-shirts, posters, memorabilia and omiyage :
10 x 20 € = 200€
I'm in a in 1410€ trip without actually going to the shows... I better have to save, save, SAVE !
As a side note, Mr. Miner put 2 greats European '97 shows this weekend in his PhishThoughts.com

Still planning over rumors...
I found that if I start from Geneva, I can fly to Duesseldorf for only 117,09€ with British Airways.
There is still a 1h stop-over in London (?!) but it's cheap and rather quick (4h in total).
After the Munich show, I'd have to go to Bern, Switzerland.
The cheapest flight would cost 300€+ so it's much too expensive. I think train would be the answer but it's more difficult to find time tables and price for train in Germany...

Ok, I know it's planning over unsourced rumors but anyway.
I live in Lyon, France. So I have to plan my tour starting from this point.
For now, I'll just have a look at the "big" travels from city to city.
So let's start with Lyon -> Dusseldorf
- With British Airways, I have a flight for 189€ but it's 08h15 > 17h25, so 9h10 with 1 stop-over
- With Lufthansa, it's only 1h20 long without stop-over but for 563€... Ouch !
- If I leave from Paris and the day before the show (5/8 instead of 5/9) I found a 44€ direct fight (1h25) !
After the Dusseldorf show (1st Phish show in Europe in 12 years !), I have only one day to go to Munich.
- I can flight with Air Berlin for 40€
- I guess i could also take the (A-)train but i couldn't find a price (except for a 177€ Eurotrain).
See you later for the other flights !

05/10/10 Munich, Germany. Zenith
05/12/10 Bern, Switzerland. Post Finance Arena
05/13/10 Milan, Italy. Milan Auditorium
05/15/10 Barcelona, Spain. The Palau de la Musica Catalana

05/22/10 London, United Kingdom. O2 Arena
There are 2 "sources" (or people spreading the rumor) for now :
This tour would be great for me as it's rather short and not too far away.
Althought the one-day Paris>Amsterdam should be a little too quick, it usually left 2 days to travel from away towns.
I'd gladly "visit" Barcelona and Amsterdam in may :)
[UPDATE] Don't get your hopes up it won't mean a thing...
