Show Notes

This was Phish’s 1st and only show at the Eagles Ballroom – a historic “Million Dollar Ballroom” opened in 1927 with a capacity of about 1,500 and a famous oval wooden dance floor and domed ceiling.  This haunted venue is part of The Rave/Eagles club complex that houses The Rave (aka The Rave Bar) where Phish last played in Milwaukee on 5/1/92.  This was the “O.J. Show,” played on the night of O.J. Simpson’s slow-speed Bronco chase in Los Angeles, which took over the airwaves just before showtime.  The Instrumental Jam played during soundcheck included sections of 2001 and Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) before leading into The Wedge, which was played during soundcheck for the 1st known time in nearly a year (since 8/20/93).  The song wasn’t performed in front of an audience again until 6/7/95.  The band referenced O.J. throughout the show with mentions in Runaway Jim, 2001, Poor Heart, Mike’s Song, Simple (with alternative lyrics) and Harpua.  Mike’s Song also included a tease from “Mission: Impossible”.  I Am Hydrogen was initially mashed up with the second Simple before being played in its entirety.  Kung – recited quickly by Trey – was sandwiched inside Harpua for the second time ever and the first time in a year and a half (since 12/31/92).  6/17/94 Milwaukee was released in 2017 at LivePhish.com.
