This setlist is likely incomplete and out of order. David Bowie featured "Fish's Birthday" lyrics, as well as a brief Dave's Energy Guide tease from Trey and Page. (Fish's birthday is February 19.) During Bowie, Trey also shouted "A hundred push-ups!" Apparently, Fish did a number of "birthday push-ups" on stage after the Bowie. Only two partial recordings of this show circulate, and there are cuts before several songs (like both Contact and Bowie) on both recordings, and other songs appearing in this setlist do not appear on the recordings at all (e.g., Sloth, Divided, Slave, Fire). This setlist is therefore speculative, and based on the only recordings that circulate, song statistics, and the information that Phish.com and Phish.net have at the present time.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu Most of this show is of the solid/average variety, but Trey goes all Shred God on the YEM, and the Fish's Birthday Bowie is pretty darn good as well. Also, the Wilson > Peaches combo is always welcome. FYI the AC/DC Bag jam is cut from this recording. 3 Stars.

Review by DollarBill

DollarBill The recording I heard was terrible, really rough, but it was worth sitting through for the Fish's Birthday lyrics in Bowie! Everything else seemed to be pretty average for early 1989.
