listening to light now... what a jam... great, this tour trey is finally taking his time and not killing every jam right as it gets cool.

also a note to the editors of this set list... light contained a extended "frankie says" tease from mike and shortly after that a brief simpsons tease from mike.

Roofless_Sheds THE BEST FEE.

Seriously. Flawless composition, and the most goosebump-inducing piece of post-Fee improv I've ever heard. 100% MUST HEAR.

All of Set 1 was outstanding, one of the best of summer tour, and Set 2 was a baller all the way through the end of 46 Days.

The perfect cap on a perfect hot-as-hell four-night midsummer Midwestern Phish run. My pick for the show of the four that holds up best on tape, though the first night of DC was phenomenal and hilarious in person.

Im sorry to be a negative nancy, but i cant take a reviewer seriously if he/she chooses Light to go potty. That song, though not my favorite, has been a vehicle for top-teir jamming this tour and last summers. I guess when i did drugs just hearing certain songs (no matter what Phish did with them) would get me off, but now it usually takes some exploratory wizardry born of risk-taking whole band interactions to take me to that special place.

Thish was the high light of our mid-west run, another velvet underground song:lonesome buffalo bill. Then 3 songs everyone I was with were dying to hear due to recent soundchecks: dirt, vultures & meat. Frankenstein completely jammed as always and my personal fav to end the set: squirming coil (played perfectly). Not to mention the Fee!
2nd set was to be the icing on the cake; c&p was excellent>NO QUARTER (been waiting for this, and it was worth it), light is getting very good, super funky Ghost, Farmhouse was beautiful, the next 2 songs rocked the f out, Joy was prob the best I've heard yet, and the Julius was the loudest I've ever heard Phish play.
Would have loved a YEM encore, but i'll take Meatstick anytime I can get it.

Everything about this show was amazing. The venue wasn't overcrowded, the moon and the clouds were gorgeous, and, to me the song selection passed a message perfectly in tune with what I needed. This show delivered. I felt like the entire day was a series of small miracles which confirms I was exactly where I was supposed to be. The whole night was an extended orgasm.

Seriously, for anyone who was upset at five Farmhouse songs just remember hiatus and how painful it was. This show, this TOUR, all in all should have no complaints. We are lucky to have our boys.

Also this was reply to glowstick campfire

Yes it was an amazing stretch but any that gets mad cuz they play 5 farmhouses is pretending to be way cooler than they are...

especially when the five songs are some of the better songs from farmhouse too

who gets mad when they play gotta jibboo? sick jam with loop guitar? Dirt is always great Farmhouse is a classic remember this song debut in 97' ... and is about the place where all this magic happens... Back on the train is always fun with good jamming and the fifth one heavy things is always fun and can give trey a chance to rip a happy song too

over all I just hate when people knock the songs.

hey everyone there are good versions of farmhouse and waste and then there are bad versions but dont hear some bad versions and hate on a slow song forever? look for the good versions of songs and be positive!

My only complaint is that they put 3 slower songs out of 4 in the second set but after a first set so amazing... who even cares great show great times!!!

glad you had an epic time and yea dont listen to kids that just whine about slower songs, not every show is supposed to be drop down balls to the walls intense lol

That first set was unreal! The second set was still good but ended a bit slower but oh well what a show starting with 3 major rarities in a row.

Something I noticed between the 2 creeks and 2 alpines each night featured a velvet underground cover

Night 1 creek : Cool it Down
Night 2 creek: Sweet Jane
Night 3 alpine: Rock and Roll
Night 4 alpine: Lonesome Cowboy bill

pretty cool

I have not missed an alpine show since 96' never disappointed!! I love alpine, miss the old school shakedowns but the music never lets me down! I could tell the hole bands was having so much fun and happy to be back. I could just go on and on about my favorite parts and tease things, but I always love cross eyed that was sick and I love it when try messed up and started laughing at the beginning of fee... And ya one of the better first sets I seen in awhile. And I got to shake mikes hand in the lot in the golf cart that made my day so thanks mike, try, page, and fish you make me so happy

TwiceBitten One of the best, if not THE best first set of the tour. Great song selection. The second sets starts with a bang and finishes with well played versions of songs that I'm sure many wish were relegated to the first set. Oh well. Gotta love it.

DoctorGreenberg Talk about one hell of a night. This was my first time back to Alpine since my very first Phish show and I think that this has been my favorite show so far (12 under my belt so far, Chaifitz will be 13).

I would like to add is anyone going to mention A Song I Heard? This is my all time favorite Phish song! I love all of Undermind, but A Song I Heard is definitely my favorite. This was my first one and I was ecstatic. Part of the way into night four I did not think of anything that could make me happier and instantly stopped thinking about all of the other songs on my summer hopes and dreams list.

Before becoming a Phish phan my favorite band was Led Zepplin. So when No Quarter started I almost died. My boyfriend looked me in the eyes and warned me not to lose my mind. I could barely keep my head on though. I have already listened to this show a good 50 plus times.

Of course, Thank you for that amazing Coil!

There are still songs left on my wish list, but this night made me so happy that I am willing to save all of them for next summer :)

P.S. I am kind of sad that I was not in my seat for Meatstick (I love being on the lawn). I was on the end of my row pretty close to the front and part of me wonders if I could have been on stage too. I made my boyfriend practice Meatsticking with me before we left because it is a common song for us. I will keep practicing in my bedroom in the meantime...

I am late to the party here but during Meatstick were they not saying, "Ooohhh, out in Waukesha, Ooohh, out in Waukesha!?!"

i would say yes!

I am a tenderfoot with all of this. Only my third show on Sunday. What a blast! Was at Alpine both nights. Sunday was extra special!

how hasn't anyone talked about the 46 Days? It wasn't the lengthiest, but it was packed with a punch right off the bat.

tat2727 This show was above average and much better than saturday's show. The show didn't really start til Vultures, when they played Dirt I pissed myself with excitement, and everyone freaked out when they broke out Meat (sense we basically get it once a year) Personally, I was more than satisfied b/c meat and dirt were the top 2 on my wish list and got them in the same 30 min, but the whole first set i give a 9, Access Me (its an unspoken deal we have with 3.0, "we will play your sign requests, and break out some new covers and gems but we get to play songs from 'Joy' and 'Undermind' ") was just like a lil break to chill before a rockin Frank and a really good jam in Fee. Maze was above average and Page really killed the solo of Coil for what seemed like a full min of cheers and applause (Page looked like he felt loved) to end the first set.

Set 2

2 great covers out the gate, no quarter was just awesome. Light was my bathroom break, ghost was quite funky (btw a pretty ghoulish night with 3 mentions of ghosts i e Vultures, Meat, Ghost also 5 Farmhouse songs) I wish they played something besides meatstick for the encore but hey, they played meat. I went home happy.
