Review by Blackeydsloth

Blackeydsloth Set I: Nothing amazing pretty average highlights include
Runaway Jim with a longer pause build than the average which was great the
silence is golden -> Gypsy Queen-> Jim, Antelope very quiet intro unfinished ->
Catapult-> Life on mars always a treat to hear.
Set II: Starts off with funk of 2001>Maze. Always a huge fan of Swept>Steep
Slave with the heavy metal jam is very nice. I really think people should give this
show a go. I know it is hard after the night before but this is the tour closer and
is a good one not to be missed.

Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover Obviously overshadowed by the previous night, the tour finale is one of those shows notable for how quietly it's played in parts, probably thanks to a quiet attentive crowd. As a result, the first set closer is a-cappella without mics and the meat of the second set has three slower songs. This makes for a bit of weird flow, though there's some highlights over the course of both sets.

Gypsy Queen is effortless jammed into during Runaway Jim and adds a little something extra to this version.

Strange Antelope intro, it's quiet and sort of deconstructed, similar to the Catapult that arrives a little later in this unfinished version. This version of Life on Mars is particularly well-executed.

The heavy metal guitar addition to the Slave makes for a nice contrast to an extra-quiet buildup-- it would be nice to see Trey revisit this in 3.0 Phish. A great Slave feels like it should end the set, but Tweeprise adds an exclamation point.

Review by zsmith0307

zsmith0307 The end of the tour! The first set's first half is dull. Things get more exciting with Jim->Queen->Jim, although the Queen is definitely sloppy. They don't finish Antelope (2nd time this tour!), and go into some craziness with Catapult. Can't say that this is must listen, but it's fun to hear the band switch things up.
A more typical second set, with an above-average Slave and an out-of-nowhere Tweezer Reprise.

YEM to end the show has a very slow and patient build from Trey, and is a great way to end a tour, but it's nothing you have to hear.

A very solid 3/5 to end the tour.
