Went Phishin'


Published August 18, 2009 at 11:38 a.m.

On Sunday night I had the pleasure of attending the final show of Phish's 2009 comeback tour. They did not disappoint.

The band was really in the groove, looking tight, sounding loud and just exuding a sense of celebration. I was really struck by the smiles on the faces of everyone in the band. They all just looked like they were having a great time, and that translated to the boisterous crowd of over 25,000.

They played a mixture of old favorites, new tunes and some exceptional covers. Special kudos to Chris Kuroda who engineers one of the best light shows in the business. Thanks, guys, and glad you are back!
