This past weekend Phish began Fall Tour 2016 with a two-night stand at the North Charleston Coliseum in North Charleston, South Carolina and their first ever performance in Jacksonville at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on Sunday. Videographer LazyLightning55 was on hand at all three shows and has shared a handful of high-quality videos from the start of tour.

One week prior to Phish kicking off Fall Tour the band released their 13th studio album, Big Boat. Thus far the quartet has debuted four songs off the LP, each of which was captured by LazyLightning55. Let’s begin the way Phish began the tour, with the complex composition “Petrichor”:

Later in the set the foursome unveiled keyboardist Page McConnell’s rocker “Home.” The debut version of “Home” shows the potential the tune has in the live setting:

Phish closed out the first set of the tour with the debut of one of guitarist Trey Anastasio’s contributions to the album, “More.” The tune fit nicely as in the slot closing out the opening stanza. Watch to see if you agree:

One of the more unusual tracks on Big Boat is McConnell’s “I Always Wanted It This Way,” which saw action for the first time during Saturday’s second set in North Charleston. The band extended the LCD Soundsystem-esque tune nicely giving fans hope for its future. Check it out:

The improvisational highlight of the first three shows of tour took place during Sunday night’s second set in Jacksonville. Phish took “Piper” deep for over 18 minutes to the delight of the crowd. Here’s footage of the Jacksonville “Piper”:
