With a show that brought the fire from the “Sanity” opener to the “Tweeprise” encore, Phish left the audience in awe and salivating for summer tour. With a setlist that reads as a joke, Phish created a “perfect” show. The band absolutely left no doubt in anyone’s mind or heart as to who their favorite band on the planet is again. After nearly twelve hours of emotional and enthralling Phish music, I’m spent. I will absolutely write about the show in detail, but it is going to have to be after a day of transit back to the west coast.
In a nutshell, the band took their final step from somewhat structured jamming into completely free flowing improv with a 22 minute exploration of “Down With Diesease.” And the fantasy setlist became a joke when the combination of “Twist > 2001 > Moma” dominated the second half of the set. Phish is back. Miner is out.
No Spoilers is up for all three nights!!
