Review by fromtheaxis

fromtheaxis This was my first night at MSG this year since I couldn't get tickets to the first two (damn you, mail order! Why must you forsake me?!) Between this show and NYE, I'd have to say that this was the better show - although they were both super-enjoyable, really fun shows.

I thought that the first set was outstanding - even though they played Ocelot, which is typically my bathroom song. Cities > Divided Sky made my night right from the start, followed by Ya Mar and MFMF and Antelope...SO GOOD. Nothing is perfect, but it doesn't need to be. The second set was pretty darn excellent, but I probably could've lived without 20 years. Meh, awesome nonetheless.

The guys had so much energy for these shows; I love to see Phish any time, but especially when it's obvious that they're having fun. The crowd's energy was reflected on the bands - the room felt like it could push through the ceiling, that's how good it was. I feel bad for anyone on couch tour for this run because holy enola did it feel good to be in that room.


Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
