Phish :: 08.09.10 :: Town Park :: Telluride, CO

Phish returned to Telluride, CO for the first time in 19 years to perform the first of two shows for a sold out crowd at Town Park. The band opened the show with the anthemic rocker “Down with Disease” before launching into rare fan favorite “Camel Walk.” The first set also included Traffic’s “Light Up Or Leave Me Alone,” Phish’s own “Stash,” and a nod to the great divide in “The Wedge” before closing with high energy versions of “Possum” and “Julius.”

The second set was by all accounts, ferocious, starting off with a huge “Sand > Backwards Down The Number Line > Prince Caspian” sequence and a short “Tweezer” that transitioned into Stevie Wonder’s “Boogie On Reggae Woman,” which contained some of the deepest funk of the night. They then launched into a high energy “Piper” that led into a nicely placed “Mountains in the Mist” before the onslaught of “David Bowie” and the poignant “Day in the Life” to close the set. Dylan’s “The Mighty Quinn” and “Tweezer Reprise” brought the show to a fulfilling end.

This show can be purchased for download at LivePhish.

Phish performs at Telluride Town Park again tonight (8/10).
