art_vandelay in hindsight, maybe this isn't as elite a show as others i attended, but it was still a solid performance nonetheless & quite an enjoyable evening. this might seem like an odd thing to point out, but they really nailed this particular version of "sparkle", holding it together even at breakneck pace, which seemed quicker than usual.....yeah i know, it's just "sparkle", but this version really stood out & was worthy of mention, LOL

while there weren't any segues or breakout extended jams to speak of, the playing was focused & the jamming still had many payoff moments. there's no shame in being a fan of this show, but admittedly i've been to better as well....

First set : REBA!!! sublime Fish work than awesome type II jam. spectacular.
The boys have been on fire the whole tour. This is vintage Phish. mainly because I remember at this time each show being a real happening and reeeeAAL anticipation as to what the heck they would play. I really think it has to do with the MSG shows a few days ago. EPIC. Bar-Raising in terms of the spectacle Phish can deliver in an arena

Character Zero gets a turn for he third show in a row. for good reason. They were laying into back then. I still think they could take this a lot farther. This is a tight straight forward set I version

Five minutes into the Theme Trey changes voices and we get a real deep Theme. Fish is awesome as per '96 ( he is my mvl so far of the tour)
they lay into the set closing Sample also!

great DWD->YEM! the DWD was special at the end
Beautiful McGrupp. something happens and the crowd cheers during the middle.

waste has a very bevy psychedelic rid at the end that kills me

what an amazing show....during theme from the bottom, it seemed like they had laser-lite bubbles floating thru the the time they came out with an absolutely smokin version of Fire, I was rollin back and forth over the upper deck guardrail absolutely LOSING MY SHIT!!!!....first time I'd ever seen them and the only time I've ever seen 'em indoors....
