Last night marked the first of the Phish Summer Tour's last pair of shows. The band came back from a stormy midwest romp and took over Jones Beach, in NY, to culminate what has been one of the band's best summers ever!
The music is fierce, tight and totally mixed up into all different types of things that are kind to the ear. Mike, Trey, Fish and Page absolutely blew the doors off of the amphitheater on the water with a HUGE "Fluffhead" opener that took many by surprise!! What a way to start off the last two shows and put the crescendo on what has been an extremely successful new album's, "Joy," being adopted by the rest of the vast repertoire of songs that they play.
The band really has the new tunes in line (this is their second year playing these tunes live), raging on "Backwards Down the Number Line">"Prince Caspian" that came right in the middle of a nasty "Mikes>Simple/Groove" set. The 2nd set was heroic and pretty much threw immense energy at the crowd who were left tired and spent after having danced hard through an amazing show!
There will be an Impulsive Review of both of the Jones Beach shows tomorrow in the IMPULSIVE REVIEW section. Stay tuned!
