Average Song Gap: 6.53

Performers: Trey Anastasio, Page McConnell, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, Beatriz Walsh (Guest)

Notes: Frankenstein was preceded by a Frankie Says tease by Fish. After the Frankenstein, Trey said the band had been waiting and waiting to play some Edgar Winter in Spain and that this was their chance, adding that they planned on playing a lot more Edgar Winter as the night went on. The band subsequently teased Edgar Winter's Free Ride. Sleeping Monkey included ¡Olé Olé Olé! chants from Trey and a stage appearance by “Betty” (whom Trey had apparently met in a bar the night before) from Chile. Sleeping Monkey was her favorite song, so Trey dedicated it to her and she danced while the band played. This three-show run in Barcelona was originally scheduled for Bikini Club in Barcelona, but was moved to Zeleste when ticket demand greatly exceeded supply for the original venue.

Faht1 This show Starts out on Fire! With a rockin Moma Dance(4.5) and with a 19 min Bathtub Gin(4.5) that the band jams hard....followed by unique PYITE. The start of PYITE(4.5) is different and worth a listen but during the middle of the song Trey flubs the lyrics but the beginning of the song makes up for it. Rockin Beauty of my Dreams(4.0) then a surprise Frankenstein(4.0). Then an average Guyute(3.5) and Antelope(3.5) round out the 1st set: a 4.2/5.0

2nd Set: WILSON!(5.0) what a version. One of the best Ive ever heard! Followed by an Average Birds, Dirt>Piper(3.5). Sleeping Monkey Was a dedication, Betty” (whom Trey had apparently met in a bar the night before) from Chile. Sleeping Monkey was her favorite song, so Trey dedicated it to her and she danced while the band played Trey chants Ole Ole Ole in the beginning talks about attending the Brazil/Spain world cup game the day before...then the crowd proceeds to chant Ole Ole Ole. Overall above average version (4.2) Solid Ghost(4.0) average JBG(3.5) by Phish standards any other band it would have been rockin! 2nd set overall was strong but short I would give it High 3.9 to around 4.0 a tad above average.

E: Julius(4.2) fans chant Ole Ole Ole before the Encore

Show: 3.9/4.0

Highlights: Moma Dance, Gin, PYITE and Wilson,
Score: 1
