Phish: Keyspan Park, Brooklyn NY 6/17-18/2004

As most people in the world of jam music know, Phish is breaking up. But before they call it quits they are playing a handful of shows, culminating with a final, two-day festival with 70,000 fans in Vermont that has already sold out.

Last Thursday, Phish kicked off the farewell tour in a Class A baseball park in the middle of Coney Island. It was a unique setting for the band, providing a circus-themed backdrop, which called to mind some of the more elaborate festivals the band has produced on their own.

The weather on opening night was not exactly ideal for an outdoor concert, with the rain coming down hard at times. But while there was still plenty of energy in the stands, the performance was delivered rather loosely, and it certainly felt like an opening night.
