Review by Phishjoy

Phishjoy The show itself was incredible. I haven't seen Phish at the Gorge since 2003 & from the moment I got in I was totally elated to be witnessing such a fun & high energy show. Meatstick always delights & is usually my favorite tune of the night if I'm lucky enough to get it however last night Makisupa was the greatest thing that could ever happen. The whole encore was perfect. Some might complain there was no reprise but for me a three song encore with a Makisupa, a gamhenge tune & a cover is nothing to complain about!
That being said I do have one complaint. Not with Phish of course they can no wrong in my mind & heart ever. Its live nation that's a piece of shit. My boyfriend & heard the opener from the car, which really set him off in a state of pure anger because he's been wanting a Tweezer all tour & hadn't gotten one yet at any of the four shows he went to back East. We walked over during Simple & had just past the gates & the welcome to the Gorge sign on song 3. We waited in line for over 2 hours to park our car with little to no movement the whole time. They had no idea what they were doing or how to filter people in & get them parked. I heard from other phriendly souls at the show that many of us experienced the same awful waiting experience & complete disappointment with how much they are dropping the ball on many things. They have no problem taking our money & over charging us for everything but they can only put one guy at an intersection filtering in thousands of vehicles?
As much as the boys delight & remind me over & over why I do what I do to get to the show; if live nation is making me have thoughts like maybe I won't ever come to one of the most beautiful venues in the world for the most amazing band of all time there's something very wrong with that picture.
Thank you phish.net for continually being there for all of us super fans & thank you Phish for a killer show last night in which I could not stop dancing, smiling, feeling light hearted & grateful to be at your show for my 165th time.
