Setlists Matching Performer: Tom Marshall


Psycho Killer was played for the first time since August 14, 2009 (127 shows). HYHU contained Psycho Killer teases and quotes as well as references to tucking. Prior to Cracklin' Rosie, Fish was introduced as Friar Tuck. Cracklin' Rosie was played for the first time since December 10, 1999 (279 shows). Mike teased Shafty after the second HYHU. Tom Marshall and Steve Pollak (aka the "Dude of Life") sang the lyrics to Antelope. The lyrics to Antelope were changed to "Been you to have any spleef."

This was the first show of the Coventry festival and was simulcast in movie theaters nationwide. During YEM, the band gave away their trampolines. Throughout the duration of the set, groups of fans held the trampolines above their heads, and some fans jumped on the trampolines as well. Tom Marshall sang the lyrics to Antelope. Trey teased Waves in Halley's Comet. Before Bowie, Trey told a story of the summer he spent living in a cabin in the Northeast Kingdom where he remembered writing several songs, including Bowie. Trey explained that Bowie was an attempt to see “how far can you push it in the harmonic and rhythmic language and still have people dancing.” During Hood, Trey (speaking in rhythm) noted that because there were a row of rocks separating the band from the crowd, they were feeling a certain level of disconnect (particularly when Mike plays a "sexy" note). To remedy the situation, Trey and Mike ventured down onto the rocks for the duration of the song. At the end of Hood, the band stopped playing, allowing the audience to sing the “You can feel good, good, good about Hood” refrain.

Trey teased San-Ho-Zay in Seven Below, Julius, and Twist. The lyrics to Makisupa referenced waking up “in Hempstead.” Later in Makisupa, Trey commented on the upcoming 20th anniversary of the band, and noted Makisupa as the first original Phish song ever played. Trey also commented on his long-standing friendship with Tom Marshall and said that Tom had written Makisupa when he was a child. Trey brought Tom out on stage and noted that he thought Makisupa was written in 1969, leading Tom to note that we “have a 60’s song.” As Tom prepared to handle vocals on Buffalo Bill, Trey noted: “Tom is now going to sing you a song about a boss, a log, and a piece of rope.”

The My Friend ending did not contain the "Myfe" lyric. Tom Marshall spoke the lyrics to Antelope. Sand through Funky Bitch and Hood featured Michael Ray on trumpet. When he wasn’t playing, Ray was dancing around the stage and exhorting the appreciative crowd. During Hood, he sat and relaxed in front of the drum riser before pulling several people out of the crowd, who proceeded to sit around the stage and occasionally dance. Trey thanked them as “The Michael Ray Chorus.” Sand included a First Tube tease.

Trey teased Super Bad in 2001. Weekapaug included a 2001 tease. The encore was preceded by a story from Trey about how he and Page grew up “around here” in Jersey. Trey then referenced “the greatest songwriter of all time” and said that he, too, grew up in the area. While some in the crowd expected Bruce Springsteen (who was in the middle of a run of 15 sold-out dates at New Jersey’s Continental Airlines Arena), Trey produced Tom Marshall. Tom appeared in the classic Born in the U.S.A.-era Springsteen outfit, complete with red bandana. He subsequently sang the Phish debut of Born to Run. As the song concluded, Tom mocked a bunch of Springsteen-esque arena-rock clichés, such as throwing his bandana into the crowd and jogging offstage to a handler who threw a towel around his shoulders. During the song he even aped some dance moves from the Dancing in the Dark video.

Moma included Manteca teases. Coil included Piper teases and featured an atypical jam that segued into Slave. The debut of Grind featured Tom Marshall on vocals and was dedicated to Phish fan Chris Heinel, who had recently been injured in a lacrosse accident. Possum included Wipe Out teases. For this show, the Holiday Run dancers were dressed as nymphs.

Fish chimed in with quotes of “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It” during BBFCFM and Tubthumping. BBFCFM also contained a Leave it to Beaver theme tease from Mike. This show featured the breakouts of Cry Baby Cry (first since June 16, 1995, or 278 shows) and Nellie Kane (first since December 8, 1994, or 293 shows). Weekapaug contained Mango Song teases from Trey. Tubthumping, a Phish debut, featured Tom Marshall on lead vocals and Carl Gerhard on trumpet and had the official recording's intro playing over the P.A. before Phish started to play. Trey called Fish "Sammy... Sammy Hagar The Horrible" toward the end of the song before also quoting "Gettin' Jiggy Wit' It." This show was released as part of the Hampton Comes Alive box set.

Trey teased  A Night in Tunisia in Stash. AC/DC Bag included Third Stone From the Sun and Psycho Killer teases. I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) made its Phish debut, was sung by Tom Marshall, contained an A Day in the Life quote from Tom referencing Big Phil (a fan who was in attendance that night), and was part of the “Pentagram Harpua,” which also included a narrative about Lost in Space. Hood was unfinished. Pete Carini made an appearance on-stage during the encore. Frankenstein included a segment with Fish coming center stage with his vacuum. The encore was unusually long; once the band realized they were going to be fined for playing past midnight, they decided to play well past midnight. Sneakin’ Sally was played for the first time since May 28, 1989 (920 shows). Neither of the Sallys contained vocal jams. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.


Squirming Coil contained a Sesame Street theme tease from Page. Mike performed the Phish debut of Sixteen Candles solo on piano. Tom Marshall contributed the vocals to the Phish debut of Champagne Supernova as Harpua, Poster, and Jimmy were confronted by the “Über Demon” and the “evil sound of hell.” This show featured the breakout of Caravan, which had been shelved since December 2, 1994 (160 shows).

The Phish debut of Shine featured Tom Marshall on vocals. Trey teased Shine in Runaway Jim. Mike's Song contained a Dave's Energy Guide tease from Page. The second set ended with a Digital Delay Loop Jam out of Mike’s, and the third set opened with the Phish Time Factory machine. All four band members dressed as scientists playing with synths while lights flashed and Van de Graaff generators zapped. Fish was lifted up in a bed as Father Time and was reborn as the Baby New Year. Weekapaug featured Auld Lang Syne, Dreaming (Blondie), and Spooky teases and was unfinished. This was the first performance of Sanity since June 24, 1994 (147 shows). This show was officially released as New Year's Eve 1995 - Live at Madison Square Garden.

Trey played along to Gary Glitter’s Rock and Roll Part 2, which was being played over the P.A., at the start of the first set. Antelope featured guest vocals from Tom Marshall. Divided Sky contained a brief Auld Lang Syne tease from Trey. Mike’s Song included a Shine tease and Weekapaug contained a Can't You Hear Me Knocking tease as well as an Auld Lang Syne tease from Trey. Slave contained Crimes of the Mind teases. Before the lights went out for the third set, the audience “overheard” the band before the set. Fish wound up saying “I want a jumbo hot dog, large fries and shake” delivered on stage. The band came out, started up My Sweet One, and was interrupted by an announcer asking who ordered the food. The band pointed at Fish, who looked confused as huge props of a hot dog, fries and shakes descended from the ceiling next to the drum set. The band played 2001 while the hot dog landed. The James Bond Theme was then broadcast over the PA while technicians (wearing “Rocket Scientist” jackets) prepared the hot dog, and the band climbed in with their instruments and flew out over the audience, as balloons popped and feathers, confetti and “Phish NYE 1994” ping pong balls fell from the ceiling. Various music, including the Captain Beefheart song Tropical Hot Dog Night, was played over the P.A. as the hot dog space ship flew back and forth. Mike's maternal grandmother, Lillian Cherry, joined the band on stage for Chalk Dust with a shoe in her hand. This version of Bouncing appears on A Live One.
