Add Review Show Setlist

mangojoeI travelled up from Tampa for these 4 Southern shows starting with this one. Bought a ticket at the box office in VIP, figured I owed myself one up close, and I was not disappointed. Musically this was a very tight show, maybe the tightest of the four. I've *only* seen Phish about 45 times so it was nice that all of these shows had tunes played that I'd never seen before, not just new songs but classics and bustouts: Time Loves a Hero and Have Mercy for me, as well as the sick jam on Light Up or Leave Me Alone (last played at Big Cypress!).

I think the farthest out jam musically was the ripper after Light, it just really soared through intergalactic space and set the stage for the monster Fluff>Have Mercy>Light up>Free. This is Phish 3.0 at their peak, as far as I'm concerned. Boogie On was also pushed to the limit, best one I've ever seen. This show also seemed to have the fewest brain farts on stage. They really pulled off some complex stuff this night.
Score: 0
