Review by The_Watchful_Hosemaster

The_Watchful_Hosemaster After missing all of the 2011 shows, I was excited to see this. Since it was the tour opener, I was expecting a straightforward show without much improvisation and experimentation.

The first set was solid. Buried Alive is always an awesome opener. I'm not going to spend any time talking about the first set because it was what it was. A great opening to Phish tour.

The second set started with Carini, which was a surprise for me. They really jammed this one out into a spacey, mellow area. It reminded me a lot of when they were at SPAC in 2009 and opened the second set with BDTNL.

The Ghost was different than anything I have ever heard before. Specifically, the opening to the song. It was very slow, very chill, and almost deliberate.

Everything else was pretty standard Phish. I don't mean that in a bad way, it was an excellent show...and equate "standard Phish" with excellence.
