Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw One gigantic jam, one great jam. And mostly everything else is average.

Set one doesn't really have anything exciting or above average to offer except Haileys Comet. The loop kicks in early in the jam and builds and builds, all four of the guys are totally locked in. It then mellows out and gets comfy before getting into a gorgeous riff by Trey. Likely the very best Haileys comet ever played.

Set two kicks off with Wolfmans which turns into a nice funky little jam. About midway through Mike starts teasing Moma Dance (sounds more like Black Eyed Katy though). Gin starts morphing into type 2 fairly early. It keeps getting more and more pretty. Then Fish kicks in and everything turns ambient. A tranquil jam ensues with great work by Page throughout, nice floating jam. The rest of set two is fairly standard versions of songs.

The encore feels pretty short with a quick Walk Away and the always very fast Rocky Top. Nothing too exciting there.

Overall two large peaks surrounded by fairly average Phish. But the Legendary Haileys catapults the whole show to 4 stars.
