Phish :: 10.21-22.16 :: Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park :: Alpharetta, GA
Vermont jam quartet Phish picked up where they left off in Nashville, when they returned to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park in Alpharetta, Georgia on Friday and Saturday nights. On Friday the band focused on new material in the first set including two songs cut from their most recent album ‘Big Boat’ – “Mercury” and “Let’s Go.” A well-paced, six song second set contained a wild “Down With Disease,” blissed out versions of “Carini” and “Ghost” and a gorgeous “Slave To The Traffic Light.” Head here for a full report.
Saturday’s concert was filled with one highlight after another from the “Mike’s” > “Ass Handed” > “Weekapaug” opener to one of the better versions of “Stash” in recent years to a spot-on cover of Led Zeppelin’s “No Quarter” to a fun “46 Days” > “Sneakin’ Sally” > “46 Days” sequence. Yet the best part of the show and tour thus far was an adventurous “Simple” that served as the improvisational meat on the evening’s bone. Phish added a rock edge to the normally blissful “Simple” jam with outrageous results. Head here for a full report.
