Show Notes

This was Phish’s first visit to Aspen since their Colorado ’88 tour. It was an all ages show at a historic Victorian style theater built in the late 1800’s with a capacity of 500. David Bowie included teases of Sparks and The Landlady. Fish had to adjust a cymbal before Foam, which was introduced as one of his favorite songs. This led the band to tease another of his “favorites”, Hold Your Head Up, before starting Foam. For some reason, Trey repeated the first line of Esther a few times. Slave To The Traffic Light was played for the first time in nearly a year, since the band’s last spring visit to CO (on 4/22/90). It was dedicated to Mike (Lynch) from Telluride and book-ended by stories and jokes. Before Slave To The Traffic Light, Trey told the crowd about the Colorado ’88 Telluride shows. After Slave, the band broke into Hold Your Head Up again and Fish took the microphone to tell one of his two Bear Stories. Trey followed that up with his story about Fish being stuck on a mountain and unable to get to the show on time in Telluride on 7/30/88 leading to the Jazz Odyssey. Chalk Dust Torture included teases of Manteca. Before Lawn Boy, Fish took a moment to respond to the ribbing he’d been getting about Colorado ’88.
