Phish caps off their run in Chicago tonight with the #NeverMissASunday hashtag looming. The first two nights (7/18, 7/19) have delivered a hand-full of highlights but we think tonight could be the one where Phish lays it all out on the stage, especially with four days off this week. With a smaller rotation so far this summer, it’s only a matter of time before a bust-out heavy show rears it’s head. Songs like “Scents & Subtle Sounds”, “Fee”, “Cars Trucks Buses”, and “Tela” are all in play and if Phish decides to kick off the second set tonight with a jammed out cover of “Drowned”, you won’t hear us complaining. Follow along for setlist and tweets from the sideline!
