Bob_Loblaw Pretty strong show!

Despite some flubs and messed up lyrics you really get a great vibe from this string of shows. You get the feeling that Phish has finally made it to the promised land, as Colorado will become something of a 2nd home for Phish and their shenanigans.

Curtain With may be my favorite song of the year. These '88 versions are just beautiful and fantastic. This first set is kind of an odd combo of songs but it's a nice little way for them to warm up.

Set 2 is really no different it features some gamehenge and a few more covers. All played pretty strong for the most part.

Set 3 seems to carry the most fire out of any of the sets. Rocky Top starts things off quick and with the exception of Contact it doesn't really slow down at all. Whipping Post and Ballad of Curtis Loew are as strong as any other version from this year. McGrupp is excellent and has some nice little trombone action from Fish. Bold as Love ends things on a super fun note.

Great show!
