Phish took the stage in Telluride Town Park on August 9th and 10th for what was a very memorable set of shows. The band seemed to be in excellent form and was one of the more sought after tickets on the summer tour. Tickets were being scalped on the street for upwards of a few hundred dollars per ticket; however, there was not the major crowds of ticketless phans which people had feared might show up and overwhelm the town.
Given that the past few weeks have been VERY rainy, it was amazing to see the weather as almost perfect with clear skies and zero precipitation.
The highlights for me were the covers: Quinn The Eskimo, Light Up Or Leave Me Alone, A Day In The Life, and Walk Away, but also liked the Possum from the first night and Divided Sky the second.
Here’s a shot of the tarp line heading into the venue on the 9th at about 5:15:
