Show Notes

This was Phish’s only show in Mesa, Arizona – the venue was an amphitheater with a capacity of about 4,200. Tickets cost $16.50 and the show was sold out. This soundcheck yielded the 1st known Higher Ground (Stevie Wonder cover) played by Phish. Run Like An Antelope included a May The Force Be With You (The Force Theme from Star Wars) tease by Trey and the alternate lyrics “suck the deer shit from the side of this hole.” Wilson began unusually – vocals only for a period until the band linked up. Among other highlights,Tweezer included a Slave To The Traffic Light jam and some chanting/whispering. I’m Blue i’m Lonesome was performed acoustic with Trey on acoustic guitar, Mike on banjo, Page on upright bass and Fish on mandolin. Foreplay/Long Time was also performed acoustic with Trey on acoustic guitar, Mike on banjo, Page on upright bass and Fish on Madonna washboard. After this show, the band and crew traveled 404 miles overnight to Santa Monica, California.
