Show Notes

This was Phish’s 1st show at The State Theatre, a historic Italian Renaissance style theater opened in 1921 with a capacity of 2,176. It was Good Friday and the first show of the final leg of spring tour. This show’s soundcheck featured the 1st known performances of Solsbury Hill (Peter Gabriel cover) sung briefly by Fish, Southern Man (Neil Young cover) sung by Trey and an instrumental Honky Tonk Women (Rolling Stones cover). Trey played The Horse and the beginning of My Friend My Friend on acoustic guitar. For his solo during I Didn’t Know, Fish played his Madonna washboard. The last chorus of My Friend My Friend developed into a vocal jam with snoring and evil laughing. You Enjoy Myself featured a guy in a cookie costume who inspired a vocal jam ending with “Mr. Cookie Head…his name was cookie head.” Before his vacuum solo in Love You, Fish introduced the band including a special Brad introduction “…on stage left for no reason at all, Mr. Brad Sands…c’mon out here. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Bradley Sands!” Fish added “…for all our entertainment, standing in the audience, Mr. Cookie Man.” Page was introduced as “Page Natonic McConnell” and gave a quck New York, New York tease. In a heroric rock and roll moment, Fish sang some of the lyrics of Iron Man through his vacuum. After the Hold Your Head Up outro, Trey introduced Fish as Henrietta Tubman. Possum included The Simpsons secret language and Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones. After the show the band and crew traveled 410 miles overnight to Chicago.
