Show Notes

This was Phish’s 1st and only show at The Ball Park (then known as the Seashore Performing Arts Center or SEAPAC) – a former minor league baseball stadium with a concert capacity of 12,500.  Tickets cost $19.00 with $1.50 parking included.  This was the band’s first outdoor show in Maine since Amy’s Farm (8/3/91).  Soundcheck brought the 1st known Communication Breakdown in nearly four years (since 10/20/90) and a rendition of Funky Bitch that included Frankenstein and some alternate lyrics.  Trey sang the verses of Fee through his megaphone.  Old Home Place was played electric for the first time.  During David Bowie, Trey teased Somewhere Over The Rainbow as the sun set over the venue.  To start set II, Trey put a cutout of The Simpsons onstage and played The Simpsons secret language.  Split Open And Melt included a Third Stone From The Sun tease.  There was a fireworks display during the end of Run Like An Antelope and the beginning of Suzy Greenberg.  During Fire, someone ignited a Phish logo made of sparklers.  Brad Sands’ notes called this “Mosquito Gig”. After the show, the band traveled home for a day off in Burlington and the crew traveled 408 miles overnight to spend their Independence Day off in Ottawa.
