Review by RickyBobby

RickyBobby I've been to roughly 20 phish shows since 1/1/16, but nothing can really compare to this one. It was quite the special show. I always knew that this band played absolutely rippin shows on Tuesdays and this Tuesday in Particular proved that statement even further. I was kind of scrambling outside of the garden trying to buy a ticket but eventually got into the venue about 4 minutes into sample in a jar.

Ever hear of the man who stepped into yesterday? Well on July 25th, 2017, 4 men stepped way back in time where jamming out songs for 30 minutes was quite common.

Sample in a jar went places I didn't think it ever would and boy was it awesome.

And it seems our little Lawn boy has grown up into a Lawn Man who can support the weight of tens of thousands of people dancing their ass off in Madison Square Garden. This Jam went deep into a spacey realm and turned into an amazing blissful peak and transitioned beautifully into My Friend, My Friend. Stash was awesome, but that lawn boy was an extremely tough act to follow. Gin was an awesome way to close a 5 SONG first set, I love the crowd energy when the song drops into "And We Love To Take a Bath!!!"

Set 2...
Fuego got the place jumpin, and thread kept it going. But the Crosseyed and Painless went into such a spacey jam that I think I saw a few peoples spirits leave their bodies, fly around the garden a few times and re enter their body 33 minutes later. When the jam dropped into Makisupa Policeman, every one lit up with happiness. I mean, how could you not like makisupa and the little reggae funk that it brings. End Of Session caught me WAY off guard, I didn't even know what it was at first. With all these new debut songs being played, I don't think anyone expected a song that was released almost 20 years ago to be debuted. Tuesday and Cavern was just the icing on the cake at that point, that second set was one for the ages in my opinion. And in the encore, when Julius ended and lawn boy restarted, the place went wild. What an amazing show, I hope Phish does a few more jam filled donuts before its all over! What an absolutely amazing jam filled show!!!
