|2015-07-21||Blaze On||Bend, OR||7:56||Debut. It's clear the band couldn't wait to play "Blaze On", hinting at its improvisational prowess from the get-go during the first set of tour.|
|2015-07-24||Blaze On||Mountain View, CA||14:58||Despite being only the second "Blaze On", this rendition has strong tension-and-release jamming with Eastern scales from Trey, before circling back to the main theme and jumping off the deep end into a pool of fractals and spacey effects used to signal Pluto.|
|2015-08-22||Blaze On||Watkins Glen, NY||16:01||At the 7:45 mark, Trey's chording shifts this top-notch "Blaze On" from straight ahead bopping to deep melodic exploration for five minutes, when suddenly the band flips a switch and begins a psychedelic horror show filled with off-kilter intervals and eerie effects that last until the jam somehow careens swiftly into (and leaves explosive residue on) -> "Possum".|
|2015-09-04||Blaze On||Commerce City, CO||14:30||For the second straight time, "Blaze On" ventures into the unknown. Seven minutes in, Trey's alternative chording sends the jam off into a warped version of the central two chord theme, and the Mu-Tron and Clavinet begin their space duel. After an off-kilter build in intensity and a switch to the B-3, the jam takes on a "Light" flavor before fizzling out into the aptly titled > "Golden Age".|
|2015-12-31||Blaze On||New York, NY||15:35||There's a reason Phish chose "Blaze On" as the song to open 2016, and this version delivers the celebratory goods. Like the past few versions, near the seven minute mark, Trey's chording sends the jam out into a world of spacey effects. These effects are reeled in quite quickly this time around, and Trey opts for a clean tone as he plucks beautiful trichords high on the neck and leads the band through a major mode passage that takes on a rough edge to it, grows percussive, and winds back to finish the tune.|
|2016-09-03||Blaze On||Commerce City, CO||11:19||For the second year in a row, "Blaze On" gets taken for a walk at Dick's. This year's jam has a more laid back, unhurried feel to it, with nice delay work by Trey that builds before segueing nicely into -> "Simple."|
|2017-07-29||Blaze On||New York, NY||23:20||Fish's dynamic drumming drives the jam early while the band probes for a hookup until a more defined, upbeat segment forms 13 minutes in. The next big shift occurs around minute 18 when Trey fires off some echoing chords and Page whips out the synthesizer as the jam heats up and climaxes strongly with Trey back in the lead. > to "Twenty Years Later".|
|2017-09-01||Blaze On||Commerce City, CO||13:29||Strong soloing finds Trey augmenting his tone, before crunchy soloing peels apart in favor of deft delay atop a soft bed of effects. Page then runs point, with Fish's cool, patterned drumming eventually giving way to a passage of swirling calm. Intensity builds via strong and spacey full-band play, featuring notable bass. Trey breaks free and works the version to a peak and the song's closing refrain.|
