Open Thread: Phish Fall Tour Opens Tonight

Phish’s Fall Tour opens tonight in Detroit where the band will hit to stage and shout “Hello, Ohio” to start the show. EPIC.

Seriously, how amazing has this summer been? This entire year has been a dream come true for Phish fans far and wide, East Coast and West Coast, and it just keeps rolling on. In the spirit of the tour opener, I thought I’d ask everyone to reflect a bit on their absolute, mind-tingling, hair-on-your-neck-standing-up moment of the year for you as a fan. Where were you when you had that moment where you lost yourself in all of this? I’ve had so many of those moments in the ten shows I saw this year, but hands down the epic moment for me was seeing the band tear through “Split Open and Melt” at the second night of Red Rocks while it was pouring hard rain on the entire audience. There’s nothing quite like being surrounded by 6,000 like-minded folks while you’re all getting soaked and watching your favorite band together. Good times.

Drop some comments to get psyched for tonight…we’ll have setlist updates tonight and plenty of commentary to go around…

    A few come to mind for me. Being at Fenway Park for the bands first show of the summer was awesome! The storm at Deer Creek and the ASIHTOS > Drowned to open the second set. Second set at Alpine night #2 was awesome! Listening to Festival 8 on XM has got me pumped for 3 shows that I will see this fall! Phish is back!!!!

    for me it had to be the last night at 8, during “Free”, something, clicked, something, that even the YEM the night before didn’t have, as epic as it was. during that moment, I heard every note from very musician, and they flowed through me like musical neutrinos, past my soul and into the next binding us together as one.

    Detroit Rock City! Hell Flippin’ Yeah!!

    yeah it seems like a straightforward show on paper. i’m sure there’s some crispy jams in there, though.

    Two moments for me…
    My first show second set Jones Beach Night one…a standard Mike’s>Simple>Wolfman’s>Weekapaug…but it was great hearing it live again.

    And then Saratoga second set.
