Review by Groucho

Groucho I have seen all three shows Phish has played at Blue Cross Arena (1997, 1999 & 2013). This was the worst of the three. That's saying a lot, because in 1999 they debuted their worst song ever in Rochester - Jennifer Dances. Tuesday was the first time I have heard Halfway to the Moon, and I think it might be their 2nd worst song.

This is the first bad show review I have posted. I've loved this band for over 20 years now but I was very disappointed with this show. It seemed like they were just going through the motions and there was nothing spectacular about anything they played. Once they started playing Golden Age.......yet again......I sat down and never stood back up until it was time to go. Plus, Possum and Heavy Things late in the 2nd set and Joy as an encore didn't help at all.

Sorry to be Rochester's Capt. Bringdown, but I have to call 'em like I see 'em.
