Trey shouted out to eight-year-old Cameron McKinney during Sparkle and at the end of Antelope. Cameron then played a brief version of Indian War Dance, an introductory piano lesson, on solo piano during Reba prior to the whistling segment and added vocals to the final Reba chorus. Page teased On Broadway after Indian War Dance. Mike teased Foam in Stash. This show marked the first Halley’s Comet since August 17, 1989 (475 shows) and the first Ballad of Curtis Loew since October 30, 1990 (302 shows). YEM contained an Owner of a Lonely Heart jam and quote, and Low Rider and Oye Como Va jams. Mystery Achievement, We Will Rock You, and Welcome to the Machine were all part of the YEM vocal jam. The Spooky Jam included the song's first verse. The Great Gig in the Sky made its Phish debut at this show. Sweet Adeline and Memories were performed without microphones. In the soundcheck, Page teased Blue Monk after Sunshine of Your Love.

Nice Cup opener, but nothing too special to my ears. Foam was also in the just ok to good range. Guelah was nicely played and Trey had some kind of tease before "the Fly". Sparkle was ok, almost off the handle. Stash was alright and had a nice jam, but so far this seems to be an off night for Mike. Paul was good and dynamic. Sample was also just ok, not quite right yet. Reba was pretty good overall, except the ending with the special guest appearance. Sounds like Trey needed to tune before and during Punch, which was kind of rough through the Landlady sections. Jim was very lackluster and kind of flat sounding with no energy again mostly from Mike. Not sure if there is equipment troubles or what, but this is definitely not five star playing so far.
Ok, this is a huge bust out! Halley's...wooowooowooo... That being said it is also really sloppy with missing lyrics and I wonder why they picked this tonight? Kind of an abrupt ending jam going into one of the lamest Bowies I've heard in a while. Pretty weak in my opinion. Ok, again I don't know why but...Curtis is out of retirement! Another one to relearn for Mike, but Trey and Page do well on this one. YEM had a rough in, but turns out to be ok with lots of teases, a debut Spooky, and a fun jam. Lifeboy is a really weird call after all that, and Trey needs to tune up before something this mellow and exposed. Rift is way off on the timing again, really bad, they barely got through it. Then the Balls come out to jam and this one had an actual ending with Trey on guitar. Alright, now the ridiculous factor goes way up as Fish does the debut of Great Gig! What can I say? You either love him or hate him, and this one takes the cake! Coil is sloppy and Page is left to clean up the mess on the last night in Colorado.
The recording I heard had the barbershop section cut off, but I'm sure it was fine. Golgi was reasonably tight
If it wasn't for the two bust outs and the two debuts, this show would not even get near four stars, so I'm only giving it three to bring down the overall average.
