Review by Pinhead_Larry

Pinhead_Larry I don't have a ton to say other than what a follow up to the previous night's show! Phish absolutely one-upped themselves in a matter of 24 hours. Flubs withstanding (Final Hurrah, notably), this is a tight, well-executed show with an all-timer 3.0/4.0 jam in the second set. Right away, Carini takes off into the stratosphere and coasts along the stars at the speed of light for 15 or so minutes. Retroactively speaking, this is one of the peakiest jams in a year full of peaky jams. The rest of the second set is the best 50-minute victory lap you could hope for. Golden Age makes for another great jam, Mountains is always welcome IMO, and then a Blaze>Hood to finish. This is an all around great show, but especially second set.

7/28 was a nice appetizer, but it was this show where I knew that Phish were seriously ready, even eager to get back on the road. Their pent-up year-and-a-half long hiatus finally over, they were ready to make up for lost tours and performances. We had no idea what we were in for. Little did we know that this show would prove to be the rule, and the tour opener the exception. What a great year this was.
