dublindeuce On the night of a full moon, Phish delivers perhaps their best ever performance at a festival that isn't their own!

Set Your Soul Free gets the place moving, and Blaze On delights once again! Blaze On impresses with a fiery and unique peak.

The band nails the Reba composed section, but the jam gets cut a bit too short for my liking. Trey peaks it quite quickly and opted for Free. I was a little blue balled by this, to be honest, but the quality of the Reba was there, so I can't be too upset.

Free, even a standard version like this, hands my ass to me every day. Sand is a great call, and this exploration reminds me of any hot Sand from the fall 2018 tour.

Wolfman's Brother wins jam of the first set, with a nice vocal jam and some spacey funk!

A standard Mike's set II opener breaks way to a surprise Fluffhead! Like the Reba from set 1, Fluffhead is executed well, but unlike the Reba, this version's jam leaves me highly satisfied!

Twist has been perhaps MVP of the past two years, and this is another scorcher! I prefer the sleepy groove of Twist from St. Louis, but this one is high energy.

The Weekapaug > NMINML > Weekapaug > Twist run was nice, but I feel they only briefly touched on each. It was a thrilling segue, but not the most improvisational I've ever heard.

Phish delivers a solid 4th quarter, with Fuego, a blissful albeit short Ghost, and a soaring Bathtub Gin. I'm loving the set 2 treatment Gin has been getting recently! Gin is like pizza, always good, but this Gin is 8.5/10 Chicago deep dish good!

I gotta say that Wilson > First Tube is a much better choice for an encore than Farmhouse > First Tube (St Louis N2)

This show is the gem of the tour so far, and wraps up a memorable Bonnaroo for Phish!

My only gripe with this show is that Trey relied heavily on songs that he had already played so far this tour. We are four shows into the summer so far, and there has already been 8 repeats! That's a big difference compared with the last two summer tours.

Next stop is Canada! I'm hoping for a jammed out Golden Age
