On October 6 and 7 Phish brought Fall Tour 2000 and the first era of their career to a close with a pair of shows at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. The band was set to begin a hiatus after the Shoreline shows and at the time a spokesperson for Phish told the New York Times “The plan is that there is no plan.” The first concert took place on October 6 and ended with an encore that featured Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir‘s debut appearance with Phish.
The collaborative encore started with Weir leading Phish on a cover of Marty Robbins’ “El Paso,” a staple of the Grateful Dead’s live repertoire. Phish has yet to play “El Paso” a second time. The cowboy song was highlighted by guitarist Trey Anastasio’s inventive flourishes. Next up was particularly revved-up “Chalk Dust Torture” featuring Weir hanging on for dear life. All these years later it remains a bizarre song choice. A more conventional selection ended the collaboration and encore as Bobby fronted Phish on the Garcia/Hunter gem “West L.A. Fadeaway.” Bob Weir sat-in for a second time with Phish on October 18, 2016 in Nashville.
