Phish just wrapped up their third night of three at their annual Dick’s Sporting Goods Park run in Commerce City, Colorado. The band webcast the show live via LivePhish.com. Scroll down to see the setlist for what the band played tonight.

Last night’s show seemed to be lightyears ahead of what was delivered on Friday, at least from my ears, but hey, I’ll need to re-listen to both to get a sense of what will stick. I know last night’s Ghost and Tube got real out there, and I was so darn psyched to see an Access Me that I was beside myself. Check out our photo coverage of Night #2 here.

Night #3 fell somewhere in the middle for me.

Here’s the setlist from the show.

Set I: Stray Dog*, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, Turtle in the Clouds, Wolfman’s Brother, Birds of a Feather, We Are Come to Outlive Our Brains > Taste > My Friend, My Friend > Twenty Years Later > Sparkle, Crazy Sometimes > Bathtub Gin

Set II: Sightless Escape^, Fuego > Piper -> Tweezer, Also Sprach Zarathustra > Chalk Dust Torture > Waste, Cavern > First Tube

Encore: The Horse > Silent in the Morning, A Life Beyond The Dream, Tweezer Reprise

* -“Stray Dog” lyric changed “Prairie Dog” referencing the plague outbreak in the area
^ – From Ghosts of the Forest, first time played by Phish

Stray Dog as an opener was remarkably fun, though. I think everyone had this thought on their mind when we heard about prairie dogs having plague and how the band’s repertoire might fit in with the current events.

Great version of Stealing Time and Turtle in the Clouds was fun as always, but Wolfman’s Brother achieved some liftoff and got to a very unique place for a WB jam.

A quick Birds, a fun WACTOOB and a great transition into Taste followed, but then the band seemed to get a bit tentative for a few songs as they shook off a slightly rocky ending. 20 Years Later reset and Sparkle got everyone moving before the band finished the set with Crazy Sometimes and a fun Bathtub Gin.

The second set started with one of the Ghosts of the Forest tunes that hadn’t made the Phish song list yet, Sightless Escape. Looooooove this tune, and the first version by the band was straightforward and solid.

What follows was Phish at their absolute best and peak-y. Fuego became a slow-build Piper, which transitioned flawlessly into Tweezer. Space from the jam made way for a 2001 rocker Also Sprach Zarathustra before the band laid out four of my favorites from the band all together: Chalk Dust Torture > Waste, Cavern > First Tube. We got rockstar Trey to close it. Yes please!

For the encore, we saw a well-played Horse > Silent and another Ghosts of the Forest ballad A Life Beyond the Dream after. After we were as emotionally floored as possible, the band let fully loose on a Tweezer Reprise and we were all sent off into the night celebrating a three-night run.
