Phish Selects Chicago 2011 Concert For ‘Dinner And A Movie’
Phish selected their August 15, 2011 concert from Chicago’s UIC Pavilion for the next Dinner And A Movie. The show will air on Tuesday, August 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.
Phish’s August 15, 2011 concert kicked off the band’s stellar three-night run at the University of Illinois. The show had a number of notables including the Phish debut of bassist Mike Gordon’s “Babylon Baby” as well as an “Alumni Blues” > “Letter to Jimmy Page” > “Alumni Blues” first set closing section of which Trey said, “that green ball came up here just enough times” referring to a fan’s ball with “Alumni Blues” written on it, as per Phish.net. Many of the tunes in the seven-song second set related to the four elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. These songs included “Sand,” “Light,” “Waves” and a set-closing cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire.” “Undermind” also saw Page on the theremin. The encore was substantial with “Camel Walk,” “Guyute,” “The Horse” > “Silent in the Morning” and “Harry Hood.”
The beneficiary for the webcast is The Mimi Fishman Foundation, “a volunteer-administered, fan-driven non-profit dedicated to raising funds for a diverse range of charitable organizations that each, in some way, touched the life of the founder, Mimi Fishman,” as per Phish.com. “Jon Fishman’s mother Mimi established the foundation with the idea that partnering with bands like Phish could truly influence charitable giving and philanthropic engagement. Organizations supported by TMFF are focused on the health and wellbeing of children and families with a particular emphasis on visual impairment.” Head here for more info.
