Sorry, everyone.

Lawn Boy didn't go 30 minutes after all.

Guess I'll tell the children there'll be no Christmas this year.

One of the best 3.0 shows I have heard.
One of those shows the two 30 minute jams just kinda leaked into the rest so even though not the best song selection, it was amazing

Seems like never? 8/3/03, a three-setter, had a 25 / 31 / 39 in those respective sets (CDT / Ghost / 46 Days).

Now we know they can. It wasn't just one of those nights. They set it up in advance that they'd be jamming, and they repeatedly pulled shit out of their ass and killed it all night long. If they can do that when the pressure is on to do that, then they clearly are capable of turning it on and off whenever they want.

Why haven't they jammed like that for a whole show in ages? Did they practice that much before this tour?

ETA: my post count is how tonight felt for me (1994, for posterity)

The Sample opener/fake out jam was awesome.

what a night!  thank you phish for the jams and for providing couch tour.  if i had "missed" that one, i would have been pissed!  in fact, without couch tour, i'd probably bump up my flight to include the shows this weekend.  god bless couch tour!

Listened to set 1. wow
30 min Lawn boy is cool, but the jams in Sample, My Friend, and Gin were beautiful. Stash was right on point, can stand up to 1.0 versions
Title: Re: 2017-07-25 MSG, New York, NY
Post by: Gumbo72203 on July 27, 2017, 11:58:32 AM
So I gotta revisit the whole thing, but at the time I felt like during Stash and Gin that the band were a little gassed, running on fumes.  Granted, it could have simply been because they totally blew their fucking load during Sample and Lawn Boy.  What a start to a show.  Best show opening ever? 

Also, those dudes on Phish.net need to chill the fuck out.  This show is not better than Cypress lol.  Get real.  It's certainly legendary, but come on.  One jam-filled show over a 7-hour jam-filled set?  It seems like this is biased towards the kydz who were there, and who weren't old enough to get to Cypress. 

Anyway, this band is unreal right now.  I knew this day would come.  I knew it would.  Despite all the 11-song second sets, 6-minute Ghosts, 3-minute Tubes, ripcorded jams and The Whale, I knew this was still here.  They just needed an excuse to bring it out.


The big question is whether or not they had enough fun to do this at regular shows now.  I should hope they saw the audience response........

07-29-98 says no.

Seriously tho it was awesome.

The big question is whether or not they had enough fun to do this at regular shows now.  I should hope they saw the audience response........

Given the band's reaction to these past two nights, I gotta believe the answer is yes. Not every night maybe, but more often than they have been. The monster grin on Trey's face over Page's shoulder as Page was destroying the intro to No Quarter last night warmed my heart.

Gotta be careful tho. Expectations are a helluva dr00g.
