Set List

Show Notes

This was Phish’s 1st show at Hampton Coliseum – a basketball arena opened in 1970 with a capacity of 13,800 and affectionately known as The Mothership.  Tickets were general admission (as with all Hampton Phish shows), cost $20.00 and the show was sold out.  Funky Bitch from the soundcheck was the slow version and included bluesy Poor Heart lyrics.  Kung was performed with unusual music, exaggerated lyrics (“stand up on your knees and up and your heels” and multi-part harmonies.  This show featured 3 renditions of Poor Heart – the first was the original version, the second (to end set II) was the slow version and the third (to start the encore) was a partial Poor Heart Reprise that was the only time the song was performed that way.  Mike’s Song led into the 1st Rotation Jam played, during which the band members switched instruments and eventually landed in a keyboard jam with all four band members playing Page’s keyboards before Mike’s Song reconstituted.  Among other this, this Rotation Jam was Fish’s public debut on electric guitar.  My Long Journey Home and I’m Blue I’m Lonesome were performed acoustic with Trey on acoustic guitar, Mike on banjo, Page on upright bass and Fish on mandolin.  Poor Heart Reprise was just a few vocals “You won’t steal my Poor Heart again” in both slow and fast styles, followed by Page and Trey asking the audience “Get it?”  After this show the band and crew traveled 511 miles overnight to Knoxville, Tennessee for two days off.  Kung > Wolfman’s Brother > Runaway Jim from this show were released in 2011 as a bonus download with the Hampton/Winston-Salem ’97 box set (see also 3/26/92).
