Review by Wombat60045

Wombat60045 All I can say is what a show!! I've seen roughly 80 Phish shows including 2 Halloweens and 8/15 and 8/17 completely knocked me out. 8/15 knocked me out, however I was able to get back up. Not so much with 8/17 - done!! Before I forget 8/16 had a stellar 2nd set but no comparison to what went on during the "Cross-Eyed" fest on 8/17.

Since 2009 (or 3.0 Phish), I have seen some extremely special venues i.e., Telluride Town Park & Lake Tahoe at Harvey's, but the 2011 UIC run - holly smokes.... When Colonel Forbin's opened night 3 I knew that we were in for another special repeat of night 1, however, I didn't realize that the band could go further down in phistory!

I have never danced so hard in my life and I was sitting in Section 103, Row D. I give the entire UIC run a 9/10, as 10 is perfection. I give 8/17 a 10/10!! Review the setlist and judge for yourself. I was there and will never fully be able to express my gratitude to this band that keeps coming back stronger and stronger!! FYI - I'm an old Dead Head.
