Detroit Rock City

Just arrived in Detroit – 1 mile from Cobo Arena, and all is well. The fire starts tonight! See you in a bit.

NO SPOILERS – Fall Tour Schedule

Cobo Arena - Detroit, MI

Cobo Arena - Detroit, MI

Welcome back! Phish’s fall tour sits mere hours away from reality as people funnel into to Motown. Much like Indio, we plan to have No Spoilers links up for each show the following day by about noon. The technique here is to just live your virtual tour a day behind – you will listen to the first show on the 19th vs the 18th, and then you can just keep on keepin’ on, following the tour all the way through Charlottesville. With many of our tapers-in-alliance hitting sporadic shows, this will be a far easier and stress-free way to run No Spoilers. If there are situations that we can get the links up the same night, we will certainly make all attempts to do so, but in terms of expectations, we are going to say high noon, give or take.

If there are tapers hitting up specific shows and would like to help get mp3 torrents posted that night, shoot me an email at to discuss. Talk to you from the road.

    Set looked fun….didn’t listen to any of the streams…waiting for a no spoilers….

    Sumodie … if you were seeding the MMW shows tonite, and a few others as well, I managed to finally snag the show….it has been eluding me for a while

    Gnite all

  2. Mr. Completely Says:

    haters are out there drinkin’ their haterade tonight, gettin’ ready for a big round of setlist hatin’ on this show…thats my prediction

    who knows if it was good or not

  3. ThePigSong Says:

    I’m happy for all my semi-phan fellow michiganders that got to rage this Wednesday. I know a handful that found Phish this year, and hopefully they found IT again tonight in the motor city.

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    plus, the Blazers did everything they could to hand the Pistons tonights game

    nothing this Blazers team likes more than giving away a lead

    the way they’re playing, a 9-4 record is fools gold – they’re gonna get a rude awakening next time they play someone good unless they snap out of it.

    3.0 is also notably absent of bluegrass, country tunes besides Poor Heart (if you call that country).
    I’ve got a sweet tooth for songs like:
    Nellie Kane,
    Rocky Top,
    Sweet Adeline (would be a sweet bustout),
    Old Home Place,
    Uncle Pen.

    A few have been played-Paul and Silas, Scent of a Mule, but they haven’t really busted out an old-school haybarn fest…

    Alright guys….
    Miner, if anything I said this morning didn’t sit well with you, I can only apologize.
    As I looked back, I may have gone a little far defending your anonymity, but I felt it was warranted.
    My suggestions of your imaginary jobs were strictly in a sense of humor.
    Hope you had a blast tonight, can’t wait for your take on things….

    Here’ mud in everyone’s eye.
    That’s 40’s speak, see?
    Good night, you guys help get me through the day with a smile.

  8. Kevin Says:

    Haven’t heard the show yet, but it looks like it would flow real well. Free>Waste makes a lot of sense, and the combo would sound good together — generally D finish to Free and A start to Waste. Sounds like a good call.

    I also expect the It’s Ice, Horn, Mist trio to sound fantastic in combination — if the band doesn’t take any time between songs, those should go together beautifully.

    Can’t wait to hear it. If nothing else, the setlist looks pretty well composed, which is something I’ve missed about “modern” (read: 97-present) Phish.

    Two things about YemBlog tweet list for tonight:
    Dude typed NO2 first instead of H2 and corrected himself.
    People following his tweets got a little roller coaster ride at that point!
    Yeah! Holy Shit! NO2!
    Also, I didn’t know there was a Trey/Mike dance in Cavern.
    Is that the norm or was this just a little silly dance thing like they did at Hartford?
    Anyone know the Cavern dance?

  10. Johnny B Says:

    this is the cavern dance

  11. neemor Says:

    Cool Picture, brings back some great memories (Phish related-photo of girl blowing bubbles at the Creek, ’99):

  12. neemor Says:

    Thanks, never saw the Cavern dance.
    Guess maybe I never saw Cavern up close and personal.
    So Phishy.

  13. neemor Says:

    New Lights being used by CK5 during tonight’s 46 Days Jam….really, really cool!

  14. Squirming_nancy Says:

    Miner & anyone with Miami extras — I am definitely interested. My husband just said I could go and he would stay home with the kid if I got tix. Shoot me an e-mail offline PLEASE!

  15. MakisupaSecurity Says:

    I would have liked to see the Its Ice.

    DWD always fun, as is bug,

    And I guess its cool that Mike and Paug kissed and made up, but is it back to the old routine?

    So much for my NICU call out.

  16. BrandonKayda Says:

    So how was the Disease?

    Anything in this show that could stand as a positive hint of what’s to come this fall tour? Any standout jams?

    The Ice Horn Mist sounds like a nice sequence as well. I also really liked that 46 Days video, sounded nice and spacey->Bowie

  17. widow Says:

    neemor just say no to country!!!

  18. BTB Says:

    CK5’s rig was definitely toned down a notch for such a small arena. He’ll have the mezz and top lights hooked up for the big arenas I’m sure. Kuroda was rockin’ to that Mike’s groove. He was in fully on boogie mode behind his controls. Funny to watch.

    I’ve got an extra for tomorrow section 107…anyone interested?
