Phish Performs ‘Run Like An Antelope’ In St. Louis
This past Wednesday, Phish closed their first set at the Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis with a “Run Like An Antelope” that took place as the hometown hockey team the St. Louis Blues were putting the final touches on securing their first Stanley Cup in Boston. Phish shared pro-shot video of the celebratory “Antelope” that came complete with teases of Laura Branigan’s “Gloria,” the Blues’ victory song, which the quartet would cover in full to start the second set.
Phish made it through the composed section of the Lawn Boy classic with little trouble. Then, keyboardist Page McConnell led the first part of the jam before passing the baton to guitarist Trey Anastasio. At around the 4:10 mark of the video viewers can hear the crowd start to react to the Blues going up 3 – 0 over the Boston Bruins. The roar lasted for a good 30 seconds and a fan in the front row held up a Blues jersey that caught Anastasio’s attention.
The four-piece continued to build to a euphoric peak as LD Chris Kuroda employed blue and yellow lights in honor of the Blues. Phish went on to nail the return to “Antelope” following the massive climax. Trey teased “Gloria” to the delight of the crowd as the cameraman captures a woman sporting a Blues jersey featuring “Anastasio” as the name on the back. The video ends with the audience chanting “Let’s Go Blues.” Watch how it went down:
