Phish @ Verizon Wireless Arena, Manchester, NH 10/26/10
Phish played a rager of a show last night in Manchester, NH, their first concert in the state in 16 years. Our very own @Phortin was there and said it was the best show he’s seen all year, hands down.
Here’s the setlist via phish.net…
Set 1: After Midnight, The Sloth, Alumni Blues > Letter to Jimmy Page > Alumni Blues, Mellow Mood, Access Me, Llama, All of These Dreams, The Curtain With > Scent of a Mule, A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing, It’s Ice, Walls of the Cave
Set 2: Possum > Light > Mike’s Song > Simple > Makisupa Policeman -> Night Nurse -> Makisupa Policeman > The Wedge, Ghost -> The Mango Song > Weekapaug Groove -> Llama Reprise
Encore: Show of Life
 “From Goddard College” added to lyrics.
 Phish debut.
 With Ghost and Night Nurse lyrics. With Can’t You Hear Me Knocking jam. Unfinished.
Notes: After Midnight was played for the first time since December 31, 1999 (206 shows). In Alumni, Trey added “from Goddard College” after the final “’cause I got a degree” lyric. This show featured the Phish debut of Night Nurse; original artist Gregory Isaacs passed away the night before, October 25, 2010. Weekapaug Groove featured lyrics from Ghost and Night Nurse as well as a Can’t You Hear Me Knocking jam and was left unfinished.
We were fortunate enough to have a photographer on hand for @LiveMusicBlog, so we’ll have a gallery up sometime today as we finish our week of work and prepare for our trip to Atlantic City. The band begins their three-night Halloween run on Friday night.
