Weekend Nuggets: Red Rocks ’95


Phish @ Red Rocks (CoventryBlog)

Phish @ Red Rocks (CoventryBlog)

Everyone vividly remembers Phish’s four-night stand at Red Rocks during Summer ’96, but by that point, the band had already played five shows at Colorado’s live music mecca- one in ’93, two in’94, and these two in ’95.  This two-night stand came towards he beginning of Summer ’95’s space camp.  Featuring extended and exploratory improv every single night of tour, the band reached some incredibly dark places. Check out the “Split,” “Bowie,” or “Mike’s” for musical illustrations of this type of jamming.  Enjoy the history of Red Rocks, as the future will soon be written!

Check out this cool interview with Trey from Red Rocks ’95!

  1. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    “she was freaking out because it wasn’t a rope”

    press enter right as the stage hand comes out to assist the woman with the rope…

  2. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    i’m sure there are more hidden bonuses just like that….
    kinda cool…watching the band…watch the band! drinking brewskis….

  3. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    no, i watched mine on a computer and there wasn’t a little icon. my guess is that the person who first found out accidentally hit the enter button on their keyboard and were very surprised.

  4. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    your right…no icon…just hit it up on my computer to check…

    moral of the story…hit enter every second to see if there are more!

  5. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    i haven’t tried it with the people on trampolines during tweezer, but my guess is there is probably one there too…or when ben and jerry hit the stage…


  6. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    haha yeah i dont know if there even is more, but when i was watching i tried random times, when ever i thought of pressing it. i wonder if for other times there is bonus material you have to press something other than enter…like a letter or number? that would be impossible to try and find other stuff. but i bet there is some other stuff during ben and jerry, or the trampoline.

    by the way ben and jerry are like the coolest guys ever!

    @ AintNoTele

    If you get in early enough you can set a tarp down for you and your friends, however it is all GA so you just gotta go with the flow as the place fills in.

    I have been there plenty of times, sometimes if there are shows with mixed GA & Reserved and people will be adamant in sitting where their ticket tells them to sit

  8. wizzle1986 Says:

    does anyone have an informed guess or can say by experience about when the lottery e-mails will get out? do you get an e-mail if you are denied?

  9. wanderin Says:

    @ AintNoTele

    Saving a whole row would not fly.

  10. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    i dont know if this is for everyone in the whole country, or just east coast, but the email i got said 11:59 PM on tuesday, so i will know wednesday morning.

  11. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    ahh but if you win tickets aren’t sent out till two weeks before the first concert your going too. thats too bad. i like getting my tickets early.

  12. AintNoTele Says:

    Setting up a huge tarp=lame as hell, get in early and get the good seats

  13. guyforget Says:

    how far outside of denver is RR?

  14. wanderin Says:

    about 20 minutes – 12 miles…the start of the foothills

  15. Mugician Says:

    The email says you’ll get an email about your request sometime BEFORE midnight Tuesday. Nervous.. Really, really nervous.

    I have a question about RR: How early should I be there (assuming I get tickets) to get good seats? I mean REALLY REALLY good seats. Like, as close to front and center as possible. I want to see the band close up for my first show.

  16. contact420 Says:

    Just got my confirmation… 4 nights Red Rocks and Toyota Park!
