First Union Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA
Encore: Ride Captain Ride
 Have Mercy melody and a vacuum solo.
Notes: Bowie was unfinished. The jam out of Have Mercy included a snippet of Bowie before returning to Have Mercy. The subsequent reggae-style HYHU contained a Have Mercy melody before leading to a vacuum solo.
This show was part of the "1999 Winter Tour."
SET TWO- I'm Calling Bowie, Jibboo, nice tune nothing to fancy just average Studio Farmhouse here, Wedge, love the intro with fish on the drums keeping the echoing rhythm, always enjoyable, then my Bowie, This David Bowie was special, continued into a Phish 2.0 Jam. Have Mercy > HYHU > ROsie, Wow! Fishman on Vocals, Fishman going nuts, this is classic Phish. Twist held energy what was not lacking, to close the show, Waste. Not a bad song, just took away the pumping energy of Phila. Encore- Ride Captain Ride, The energy was restored. Good solid Phish 99 show, Keep em coming and ask yourself what will be played next.
Jibboo 2nd set opener is OK but nothing special.
Bowie has a nice segue into Have Mercy but outside of that it lacks fire.
Rosie was a treat with Fish running laps around the stage and if you listen really closely you can make that out from the AUD.
I think the band finally woke up for Twist because it seems like the only song for which they are all synced up.
The Ride Captain Ride encore really got the crowd back into it after the Waste lullaby S2 closer.
On a positive note, the band played better than I could have and without a doubt this is the best show they have ever played on 12/10/99.
2nd set was a struggle as well,trey kept stopping to wipe his nose every 20 seconds,the Bowie->Mercy->Fish antics were fun...and closing w/Twist,Waste..worst show of tour!
I've never successfully found a copy of this show, so I'm yet to relive and digest the performance, but from what I remember it was the atmosphere that changed me and my music interests forever.
The lot scene. Wooks. Shakedown. Everyone cheering, dancing, before the lights even went down. The vibe was amazing. The playfulness of the band during Fishman's vac solo with the BAH cymbals, sprinting in circles around the stage.
The funk. The soaring jams. It all finally made sense.
