Review by SFuzzy

SFuzzy I wish I could go back to this show with different expectations. I was closer to Trey and Fish than I've ever been, and waiting for them to rip my face off for the whole show. The show never hit a Phish-force jam, which I should've expected. The whole time I felt like Trey and Fish were holding back and never really hitting a stride.

I read the Rolling Stone article/interview with Trey after the concert. Finding out how the whole album/tour is a tribute to Trey's late friend really put the experience into perspective for me. The whole energy of the room made more sense. Looking back, I wish everyone stayed seated instead of flooding the rows of the orchestra aisles like they were stubbing down to pav at a summer show. If I knew that it wouldn't be a show to dance at, and instead just a show to listen to what Trey was offering, I think I would've had a better time. Unfortunately, I went into the show expecting TAB + Fish and felt blueballed at the end of it.

Listening back, great show, great (authentic) experience. I just wish I read up on the project beforehand.
