The first time I saw Phish live was at the band’s famed Rupp Area show in Lexington KY, in November 1996. (The Four Horsemen of the Psychedelic Apocalypse unspooled a stratospheric, 25-minute “Bathtub Gin” jam that night which immediately entered Phish pholklore as one of the all-time best versions. As a dazzled, newly-minted Phish convert at the time, I certainly thought so, and it was my first time hearing the song!
This past weekend, Phish took their twelfth run at their annual Labor Day summer tour closer, delivering four nights of fun at the famed Dick’s Sporting Goods Park outside of Denver. With the exception of Thursday night, which was still very packed, the band played to sold-out crowds, 27,000 people turning out to celebrate the Jesters of Jam and the shared experience once again.
Phish performed two benefit concerts at Saratoga Springs, NY’s Broadview Stage at SPAC this weekend, raising over $3.5M for flood recovery efforts in Vermont and Upstate New York. Both shows featured special pre-show acoustic sets with Phish’s Page McConnell and Trey Anastasio, while the Saturday, August 26 performance saw Phish joined on stage by a surprise appearance from guitarist Derek Trucks.
Phish has announced the details for the free webcasts of their two special shows at the Broadview Stage at SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center) in Saratoga Springs, NY on August 25 and 26, 2023. The webcast will be available for free at LivePhish.com and Phish’s YouTube channel. Fans watching will be given opportunities to donate directly, and 100% of all donations will be directed to the WaterWheel Foundation's Flood Recovery Fund.
Six nights of live performances certainly take a toll. However, there was no sign of breaking on the sixth of seven performances by Phish at Madison Square Garden on August 4, 2023. The jam rock squad from Vermont certainly brought the sweltering summer heat inside the Garden in the form of face-melting jams, rarely played originals, and tasty covers.
