Show Notes

This was the second show of a 2-night stand and Phish’s third and final performance at Newport Music Hall. The Fly Famous Mockingbird narration was about the venue being sanded into a silver metallic ball (at this point, the band began their 1st known performance of March Of The Winkies from “The Wizard Of Oz”). The sanding was being done by green Pixies until the whole country turned into a Labyrinth Game which the Pixies tilted back and forth until we slid into Gamehendge. Trey made a funny comment about the Gramehendge story, saying “it’s alot of stuff to know…all the knowledge in the universe.” During I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fish, saying “now here to blow an ancient ritual song to keep the Gremlins at bay, Henrietta Tubman.” The Run LIke An Antelope featured a unique, almost Tela-esque intro as well as a tease of The Divided Sky from Trey and alternative (abbreviated) lyrics of just “Spike, man?” The jam from this soaring rendition of Split Open And Melt was used for the end of Demand on the album “Hoist”. During The Squirming Coil, Page teased some (as yet unconfirmed) jazz standard. Trey played acoustic guitar for The Horse. The jam in Mike’s jam included teases of Oye Como Va teases and a jam on the as-yet-unnamed Simple. Weekapaug Groove was particularly dynamic with sections of rim shots and temple blocks from Fish, which led to multiple building jams and an unusual ending. Gumbo also had an unusual conclusion – it ended with a unique Free Bird ending peppered with a few rounds of “thank you, thank you very much” and screaming. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones.
