It’s hard to get Phish fans to agree on anything, but we haven’t found many of the Vermont jam act followers’ that aren’t high on the just completed three-night stand at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado. The band came out firing with a rare “Ghost” opener on Friday night and kept their feet on the pedal throughout Sunday’s night’s encore. Despite the end of the setlist shenanigan tradition that was part of the Phish Dick’s experience between their first run at the soccer stadium in 2011 and last year’s epic “THANK YOU” encore, there was plenty to love about what went down this past weekend.

JamBase contributor Jeremy Williams was on hand at all three Phish Dick’s ’16 performances and we’re pleased to share an incredible gallery of his shots. While we’re at it, we’ve compiled our favorite five moments of the run in video form. Check out our list followed by Jeremy’s gallery:
