For fans of the band Phish there is no doubt that 1993 was probably the most pivotal year in their now legendary career. Though they had technically been performing together since the mid 80s, it was at this point that the band began to shape themselves into the touring juggernaut they would eventually become. Over the course of the year the band performed 110 shows, each one filled with unique jams, new originals, and exciting cover songs.
In late January, legendary Vermont quartet Phish shocked the jam community by announcing an unprecedented 13-night run at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. From July 21 to August 6, music enthusiasts from across the globe will flood into New York City to pack the 19,000 capacity arena for the inaugural “Baker’s Dozen” rock and roll extravaganza.
In 1993, Phish was touring following the release of their fourth album Rift, and rapidly expanding into colleges and theaters as word spread about their renowned live performances. St. Louis '93 captures the band at two standout shows on consecutive tours at the 1,750-seat Beaux Arts style American Theatre.
In addition to The Baker’s Dozen at Madison Square Garden, a few more shows have been added to Phish's summer plans including three shows at Chicago’s Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island and one night stands at Dayton, OH’s Nutter Center and Pittsburgh, PA’s Petersen Events Center. The band will also return to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for their seventh annual Labor Day Weekend run in Commerce City, CO.

On June 26, 1995 Phish played their second headline show at Saratoga Performing Arts Center ("SPAC") - a modern amphitheater on the buccolic grounds of Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY. SPAC '95 was the sixteenth show in a 22-show summer tour supporting Phish's first live record - the 2-CD set A Live One, released June 27th (the day after this show) on Elektra. While A Live One was a compilation of Phish classics recorded in 1994, summer 1995 performances gravitated toward new material from a one-off show in Lowell that May and e
