Show Notes

This was Phish’s only show at the Kiel Center – home of the St. Louis Blues NHL team – opened in 1994 with a capacity of 19,100. Tickets cost $20. Before set I, Mimi Fishman and her surgeon both spoke from stage to announce that Phish donated $5,000 for glaucoma research and to challenge the audience to match it. Following Sleeping Monkey, Trey announced – Sesame Street style – that the show was brought to you by the letter M (all the songs in set II or their nicknames began with “M”) and the number 420. This show featured the 1st Mean Mr. Mustard (The Beatles cover) played by Phish and included John Popper (dressed as the “dirty old man” in a cape with a cane. Blues Traveler was in town to play the American Theatre the next two nights and Popper stayed on stage to play harmonica during the Weekapaug Groove set II closer and the Funky Bitch encore. This was the last known Mike’s Song with mini-trampolines. After this show the band and crew traveled 435 miles overnight to Omaha, Nebraska.
