lostben What a show!! I'm an Aussie who was living in Vegas during 97-99. Was turned onto Phish by friends at UNLV. Went to the halloween show in Vegas and was blown away! Had to see them again. Visiting New York with a mate for xmas and new years and scored a ticket on the subway escalator near the venue. Didn't care what night I went but the ticket was for the 29th. Turned up early by myself, met some cool guys and had a drink and a brew. Went in found my seat on the balconey directly behind the band (fishmans drums actually). Sick seats and a totally different experience watching the show from behind the stage. Mad seats. Phish blew me away again!!! INCREDIBLE!! Can't analyse the music like diehards, but it was an incredible mind blowing experience!!! To top it off I bought a ticket in a fundraising raffle between sets and WON! 2 passes to the afterparty!! Totally cool, I had an Aussie beer t-shirt on and some crew who had been waving at me backstage came and talked to me at the party. They were aussies as well who worked on the lighting!!
WHAT A NIGHT!!!! Made me a fan for life!! I'm back living down under and try to tune people on to the music all the time!! Hope that one day they will make it to tour or at least do A show in Australia!!
Byron Bay Blues Fest at easter or the Woodford Folk festival over New Year would be an ideal start (I guess I can only dream) to showing off the band to aussies, who I know would go mad for Phish!!!
Amazing Band and I am stoked they are back!!!
