“Never miss a Sunday show.” This has long been word of the wise from many Phish fans when it comes to experiencing a run of shows. On top of that, the date 12/30 has always been a legendary night for the band. Walking into Madison Square Garden that Sunday night I expected to hear an entertaining show and hoped for some longer extended jams. After all, the opening two nights had overall solid set lists, but there was definitely room for more experimental jamming and improvisation.
It's the age old debate (Or at least one that’s been fretted over for about the last 10 years or so): “Couch Touring” Vs. the “In Person” experience.
I have been privy to those who claim couch touring is not a valid way to see a performance; In fact, I’ve heard people say that those who have streamed shows in the comfort of their homes can’t really count that as officially “seeing the shows”. In other words, if I’d been to 30 shows, but 15 were on couch tour, I’ve technically only seen 15 shows.
At the end of December, Phish returns to Madison Square Garden in New York, New York for a four-show New Year's Run to close out 2012, and for the first time, the webcasts are available on iOS platforms, so you can enjoy the shows on your iPad, iPhone or Apple TV via AirPlay.
Tomorrow, Thursday, December 6, Trey will join Neil Young & Crazy Horse at a special benefit concert at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ.Trey, a New Jersey native, will perform a solo acoustic set at the concert. Proceeds from the evening will go to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
