Phish Adds Video Of Memorable Mann Concert From 2015 To LivePhish App
Phish expanded the video offerings on the LivePhish app for subscribers to include pro-shot footage of the band’s entire August 12, 2015 concert at The Mann Center in Philadelphia. The performance wasn’t webcast, so this marks the first time video of the full show has been available for fans to view.
While the first set featured standout versions of “Cities” and “It’s Ice,” it’s the second set that made night two of the 2015 Philadelphia run one of the best shows of the tour. Phish fit a mere five songs into the 76-minute frame in which they turned nearly everything they touched into gold. “Bathtub Gin” opened the closing stanza, marking just its second appearance in that slot since 1999. The fairly straightforward “Gin” was followed by a top-shelf “No Men In No Man’s Land” that showed the song could be used as a jam vehicle less than a month after its debut.
Next up was a must-hear, 20-minute “Twist” that broke form and saw the band explore dark and varied jam spaces throughout. A huge treat followed as Phish dusted off the full version of “Scents & Subtle Sounds” for the first time since 2011’s Superball and only the second time since returning from a breakup in 2009. Once again, the quartet painted outside the lines during the beloved “Scents” jam. “Harry Hood” closed out the set and while the jam didn’t reach “Type II” territory it’s a well above average version of the classic song. Phish ended the night with a “Loving Cup” encore.
Video of the concert can be accessed by LivePhish subscribers on the app. The footage cannot be viewed on the desktop version of LivePhish+. For a preview, watch Phish’s performance of “Scents & Subtle Sounds” from August 12, 2015 at The Mann Center in Philadelphia below:
