Watch Phish Perform 21-Minute ‘Rise/Come Together’ At Walnut Creek
The band unveiled pro-shot video featuring a highlight from Friday’s show in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Phish shared pro-shot video of the 21-minute version of “Rise/Come Together” that was played last Friday. The most adventurous and longest take on the song written by Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio with Gary Nicholson and Kenny Greenberg closed the first set of the quartet’s concert at Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Raleigh “Rise/Come Together” was more than twice in length as any previous version. Phish has been inserting jams in unexpected places throughout their current tour with other examples including the Jones Beach “Leaves” and Hartford “Sigma Oasis.” JamBase’s Andy Kahn detailed the Raleigh “Rise/Come Together” in a recap of the night, noting:
The unexpectedly elongated jam that followed stretched past the 20-minute mark, going into full-on Type II territory for several exploratory turns. Early in the jam, Trey latched onto a melodic passage and continued pushing the theme as drummer Jon Fishman kept the improvisation progressing to new territory.
During the jam, Trey and keyboardist Page McConnell refrained from heavy effects and instead focused on flowing melodies. The foursome sounded like a band deep into a successful tour, each member listening intently and communicating confidently knowing each suggestion would be recognized and lead to promising results. An abrupt return to finish “Rise/Come Together” brought an end to the first set.
