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…

    I have great respect for Sparkle’s lyrics. Tom nailed that one.

    someone said earlier today that this 3 night run will pretty much determine the new trajectory of phish….. well, I think the phish answered that one pretty definitively tonight. In fact, they answered it in Light, which had plenty of opportunities to be cut off, but they kept on going and opened up the hose… what a show.

  10. KWL Says:

    was there a stream?

    Met a bunch more PTers today & caught up with a few I’d met before. Awesome night.

    Neemor got his Antelope.

  11. BTB Says:

    Steam was rocking for a little bit atleast to my knowledge. Ignorant consensus on-line was the show was a little weak.

    Hope to catch your analysis tomorrow along w/ a listen myself. Off to sleep.

    just got back from msg. LIGHT. tweezer was great too. finger tapping in acdc bag and Divided sky was a blast form the past. trey was ripping tonigt, it was a realy rocker.. plus PEACHES!
    i suspect tomorrow to be a chiller, more psychedelic night, and friday to be a dance party.

    too much going through my mind, dripping in rain, low blood sugar, ill post again tomorrow. wanna hear these sbds

  13. KWL Says:

    anything but weak imo…. trey was mvp tonight

  14. Andrew Says:

    Looking back over the pages since the show started, I’m amazed at the impatience. “Hey did you see tomorrow’s game, it sucked!” Come on now, it’s dead clear in NICU –

    For you’ve rehearsed
    tomorrow’s verse
    forgive me if I don’t sing in your key

  15. Mr. Completely Says:

    excellent, good to hear

  16. Snowbank Says:

    Just arrived at Newark. Peaches!!! So close yet still so far! I just hope they keep turning the volume up!

  17. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    anyone know how to make a whole album in to a torrent file, rather than single tracks?

  18. Snowbank Says:

    Why does everyone on the east coast seem so desperate? I feel like I am in a 3rd world country … Until I get into manhattan. Very strange place. Not in Kansas anymore.

  19. butter Says:

    just got back to hotel, first set rocked fuckin hard

    2nd set was great , golgi = old school second set opener or you can say keepin it rock orientated !!!!

  20. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    @ mr c idk how the recordings will reveal it but that tweezer, albeit short, was pretty killer, or at least it was for me while i was at the show.

  21. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    oh man i forgot about the suzy! the built and built that part where page rocks the grand piano… i thought we were looking at a 9/13/00 situation! but regardless it was a rocking suzy… never saw it coming. wasnt too pumped when they started it it.

  22. jdub Says:

    This could be big joke but I’m taking a chance. Sitting in a cab right now going to The Everyone Orchestra, check out, members of Phil+friends, treys band, slip, charlie hunter trio, we’ll see

  23. PhishIsChochmah Says:

  24. jdub Says:
