Show Notes

This was Phish’s return to Colorado after their epic “Colorado ’88” tour. The venue is generally referred to as Club 156 because of its capacity. According to the promoter, “Dandy” Don Strasburg, Club 156 may have been referred to as Quigley’s at the time. In any event, this show took place inside the UMC with the band utilizing an adjacent classroom as their dressing room. After Take The ‘A’ Train, Trey announced that this was the first Colorado show in two years. The enthusiastic crowd responded by yelling “Wilson sucks!”. The seventh to-date Rhombus Narration before The Divided Sky was more humorous than some. Since the audience seemed to know what a Rhombus was, Trey skipped that part of the narration, focusing instead on the green (color of the hills in Gamehendge). During I Didn’t Know, Fish was introduced as Moses Brown, Mr. Moses Heaps and Mr. Moses DeWitt and his instrument was referred to as the “Vac-o-Boulder”. The second verse of Contact was dedicated to Eli for his birthday. According to Don, Chris Kuroda wrote the setlist for this show. Some fan sources list Contact as Encore 1 and Highway To Hell as Encore 2 but this information is unconfirmed.
