Notes from the Sideline:
Fishman was introduced as “The John Coltrane of the vacuum cleaner” during “I Didn’t Know.” “Frankie Says” is Song #212 of the Summer Tour. The Curtain did not contain (With). This was the first time in history “Peaches” followed “The Curtain.” According to @YEMblog everything except “Ocelot” in tonight’s opening set was debuted in 1993 or earlier. “Chalkdust” was unfinished. This version of “Limb by Limb” is in the must-hear category and will probably be looked back on as one of the top jams of the summer. Watch out for the Cactus Bombs during “Undermind”, “Sand”, and “YEM.” Immediate reaction from #CouchTour groups this show atop the second leg. Phish plays the state of Oklahoma for the first time in their career tomorrow. Interestingly enough inside a zoo at the Zoo Amphitheatre in Oklahoma City, OK.
Our very own Dana Montanari was on hand to shoot the show last night and she brought back this amazing photo gallery from the show.
