Wisy_Megabeth Now that we have this 2019 Fall Run in the rearview mirror, I think this show must be at the top, certainly in the top 2. It was a lovely little tour and brings us all a new chapter in "the Phish from Vermont," as Trey giddily remarked to the crowd to end the Charleston weekend. Say what you will about that show, who in their right mind would see a "Chalkdust Reprise" coming? That Plasma bit to close it all out made me laugh on the way to work on a miserably raining Monday in New York, and who but this band could do that?

For all the new Phish we got in the 2018-19 creative spurt (Kasvot, numerous tunes not on Big Boat, GOTF, Vida Blue, Mike's band) this show has some of my personal favs in "Everythings Right," "Ruby Waves" and "SANTOS." Top that with maybe the best bust-out of the tour (all 2019??) in a thoughtful ode to Lou Reed, along with some classic 80s Phish and you've got a winner. Coming out of the gate with Ghost-Rift bliss for nearly 20 minutes and inserting a smoking hot "Tube" in the first set also sends this show into the tops of the tour. Certainly a strong contender for best set of the tour IMO. Can't wait for MSG and wish everybody the best in the holiday season!!
