Show Notes

This was Phish’s ninth show at Red Rocks and the final show of a 4-night stand. Tickets cost $25.00 and the show was sold out. Trey teased Dave’s Energy Guide during Stash. The band brought the music down during Ya Mar while Trey expressed their appreciation for Red Rocks (“I want to tell you guys what an incredible time we had the last four nights. I will never forget it and I hope you feel the same way…This place is beautiful and I hope we can come back”), recognized Colorado swimmer Jon Olsen who just won two Summer Olympics gold medals, and announced that another Coloradan would come out to sing later in the set. He also warned “as the night goes on watch out for the giant iguana that comes out of the rocks sometimes…” Ninety-Nine Years (and One Dark Day) and Hold To A Dream [both Tim O’Brien covers] and Doin’ My Time [Jimmie Skinner cover] were the 1st played by Phish and featured Tim O’Brien on mandolin, bouzouki, and vocals. Out of Runaway Jim came the 1st known Gypsy Queen (Santana cover) played publicly by Phish (see also 6/26/95 soundcheck, 3/2/97 and 6/24/97). The Fly Famouns Mockingbird narration involved the giant Red Rocks iguana taking us to Mars to view the life there. The next two days were days off as the band and crew traveled 1020 miles to Wisconsin.
