Lucyspaw The last show of their 98 Europe tour had a few glitches to say the least. There were issues with the venue, which I don't think had seen anything like a phish crowd come through. I'm not sure they were prepared for such a thing. I heard some fans complaining they were raising drink prices as the run progressed. Then on this night the sound was going really bad. At one point they even tried playing with just the stage monitors. On some down time I remember Trey and Jon joking with each other, Trey even said, "Who's the guy that like to hang out with musicians? A: The drummer" ba da bump. I think Fish responded with something like "How do you slow a guitarist down? A: You put sheet music in front of him." Eventually the problems were worked out and we were treated to a rollicking second set. After the show I ran into Mike and Page outside the venue. A young woman was showing Mike how to do some dance there in the street. Eventually I slipped off into the Barcelona night. The next day I took the train to Sitges and met a couple of other phans from Lawrence, KS. Great time and my first trip to Europe!
