The Return to the Big Stage

Here We Come...

MSG, Here We Come...

The time has come; tonight Phish will return to MSG for the first time since their first comeback on December 31, 2002. After an extensive year of playing, Phish’s calendar will come to an unquestionable climax in a  building they have historically owned. With thirteen shows in The Garden under their belt, the band returns to the arena at the tail end of their fall tour in a completely different place than ever before in their career. Phish have traditionally pushed themselves in the Garden, forming some of their career defining nights in the building. From their first appearance in ’94 and their epic New Year’s show in ’95, to the legendary New Year’s Runs of ’97 and ’98, MSG boasts arguably the most regal history of any Phish venue. And tonight the legacy continues…

    @Mr C
    Thanks. I thought about that feature on itunes, but I felt, rightly,apparently, that it would not manipulate the file externally.
    Perhaps someday I can reciprocate the Darkstarenstein, at least on some level.

  10. albert walker Says:

    I don’t do good in large groups
    even small groups for that matter

    this weekend could be pretty hectic. a lot to do in New York and a lot of kids going out there. could be pretty busy.

    we will have a puff though man
    if not this weekend soon very soon

  11. albert walker Says:

    work some shit Boris
    get your hustle on

    that’s what I used to do when I was broke and needed to see a show

  12. Boris Says:

    wow…new trey pedal?

  13. Twzr247 Says:

    I would agree about the winding down sensation of second sets. Seems like not much after the 3rd song, save for songs like Hood, etc that have built in jam capability, though quite finite (witness Velvet). Then we get a string of set closers, with a biggish one thrown in at the end. I would be surprised if anything follows this Antelope.

  14. BTB Says:

    Looks like Kuroda brought his big light rig to fill MSG. I could be mistaken, but I don’t remember seeing a rig that big on this tour

  15. Boris Says:

    i can’t do it AW…i am a poor student who needs to work instead of go to concerts

    this new pedal of trey’s is melting my face man

  16. albert walker Says:

    that’s why I dug Cinci night I

    not the craziest jamming but pretty nice songs selection all the way through

  17. gavinsdad Says:

    boris – please post head shot and references.

    definitely gonna have to listen to this one. slave tweez hood antelope in the 2nd. i just cant get my head around it. (tho i’m sure it’s happened a few times before).

  18. albert walker Says:

    making money while seeing Phish shows can be fun too!

  19. gavinsdad Says:

    all good AW – i know how to spot the hat.

  20. Boris Says:


    you don’t want a/s/l first!?!?!?

    seriously those warbly effects are extrasensory

  21. albert walker Says:

    look out man

  22. Twzr247 Says:

    I can see your point. Found Portland to be extremely entertaining, though looking at the list on paper might give a hint otherwise. The Meat was sweet, fwiw.

  23. Boris Says:

    i called it short and sweet like…oh well i will keep it clean

  24. albert walker Says:

    I mean joy sparkle

    I think it is fair to say we don’t have to hear that one to get the jest of it

    I just realized they played those back to back

    back in the day when I was touring in the mid 90’s I would have been booing at shit like that

    let’s a nice nice encore.
