Review by Itch_to_the_nag

Itch_to_the_nag For most of the 3.0 era phish has left significant time between the nye run and their last official tour date. This can present an issue where 1 show clearly stands out and the others are just that, the other ones....

Tonight’s first set almost felt like an extension third set from last night. Immediately confirming that these guys are completely dialed in right now and can almost do no wrong.

These last two nights could stand up to any 2 night run from any era. Bustouts, super space, hard type I rock, effortless segues, lights done by a fucking wizard. Nothing short of a perfect 4 sets of music and 6 encores.

Holiday runs can prove to be tricky. NYC is expensive. Expectations can be unrealistic and for the most part they tend to be a reflection and celebration of the last year and not it’s defining run.

So far, this year has been the opposite. These last two nights have defined phish’s 2018 and put a hard exclamation point to what could be considered the strongest 3 year run of their career. (15-18)

(Jadded Vets would arugue 95-98 would take that honor and maybe they would be right.). But if in hamptons 2009 you thought this is where the 3.0 era would land you’re just a lair. It’s been an incredible last few years. Happy new year everyone enjoy the last night.
