Notes: Though the band came out in position for Walfredo, they were forced to pause due to technical difficulties. For the second show in a row, several breakouts dotted the setlist: Walfredo (first since February 22, 1997, or 248 shows), Esther (August 9, 1998, 146 shows), Forbin’s and Mockingbird (August 7, 1998, 148 shows), A Day in the Life (July 3, 1998, 170 shows), and Emotional Rescue (July 28, 1998, 155 shows). The Mockingbird narration referenced the band’s upcoming hiatus. I Didn’t Know included a reference to Kid Rock’s sidekick Joe C. Esther featured flubbed lyrics for the final verse, ending with Trey proclaiming: “She died. Dead.” As the band returned for the second set, the crowd serenaded Trey with Happy Birthday. Twist contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. Emotional Rescue included a bizarre synchronized duel on-stage between Trey and Mike. This show was webcast live and subsequently released in its entirety as the band’s first full concert DVD, Live in Vegas.

chrismcguire634 One of the most underrated shows in the catalog! The first set is fantastic: The Curtain With, Maze, Roggae, Simple, Mike's Song and Weekapaug Groove are all stand outs. The first set is one of the best sets of Phish from 2000-2003 and one of my all-time favorites. Go get it!
Score: 3

That Intro of Maze is just insane. It's just plain nasty.
Score: 2

westbrook I like the first set a lot. Walfredo continued the theme of bust outs from the day before. The Curtain With, being one of my favorite songs, is a nice addition to the set. Maze and Roggae both include very good jams. The set-ending Mike's Groove is great. Mike's Song is typically hard rocking. The following Simple is short and sweet, and Saw It Again emerges from a spacey ending. I really like Saw It Again, so this works for me. Having not played been it in a while, Esther is understandably sloppy, but Weekapaug Groove is very good. Mike's bass intro is great and the funky jam in the song is my favorite part of the first set.

The second set is a little short, but it has its moments. Timber has a nice, delicate jam. AC/DC Bag is standard. Col. Forbin's Ascent>Mockingbird is a crowd pleaser and features some interesting narration from Trey about the band's upcoming hiatus. Twist is nice and bluesy. Sand's jam is mostly ambient, with Trey playing in the background and it also sounds like he spends most of the jam on his keyboard. It's very different from present day Sands. Two covers end the show, A day in the Life and Emotional Rescue. Emotional Rescue included an odd interpretative dance from Trey and Mike. Check out the video of the encore at . I rated this show as 4 stars because of the strength of the first set.
