This was Phish’s 1st show at US Air Arena (formerly known as The Capital Centre) – a hockey and basketball arena opened in 1973 with a capacity of 18.000. Tickets cost $22.50. Rift was quickly aborted after the rhythm fell apart during the first verse. after they stopped mid-song, Trey said “We’d like to credit that last one to our drummer, Mr. Jon Fishman, let’s hear it for him.” The resulting Free went deep and long (about 33 minutes) with teases of No Quarter and Bouncing Around The Room before segueing into Llama. Poor Heart was the slow version. After this show the band and crew traveled 254 miles overnight to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for a day off to celebrate Thanksgiving.
