Red Rocks:

When Phish last played Red Rocks in 1996, a way overblown confrontation between a few wooks and officers in the town of Morrison led to a supposed ban against the band ever playing the venue again. Thirteen years and a terrible economy later, the band will finally return to the gorgeous natural amphitheater carved into the rocks.

Shoreline:

Located in the San Francisco area, Mountain View’s Shoreline Amphitheater was designed by impressario Bill Graham to resemble the Grateful Dead’s Steal Your Face logo and includes plenty of fan-friendly features including ample room to dance in each row. Ever since Phish first headlined at Shoreline during Fall Tour ’95, the band has made the venue a regular stop for outdoor shows in the Bay Area. Phish performed their first set of “final shows” at Shoreline in 2000.

*There is a large chessboard on the back of the stage. The band will be playing the audience during the tour, one move per show. The band’s collective move (white) will be made during the first set, the audience (black) decides on a move by group decision at the Greenpeace table during the setbreak and moves just before the second set. Page and a tourhead named Pooh (?) played a 3-4 move intro to set up the board during the White Rabbit jam in the first set.  #First time played.  **Dedicated to Jerry Garcia.

The Gorge

When the Glide Magazine staff got together in 2004 to pick their favorite outdoor venues, George, WA’s The Gorge took the top spot by a long shot..

With perhaps the most dramatic physical surroundings of  any outdoor venue, The Gorge is almost a mini Grand Canyon. Nestled along the Columbia River in central Washington state, this destination is a surreal natural experience; put together with the unobstructed views, open air seating, natural stands and onsite camping. When the sun sets behind the stage over the river in the early evening with your favorite band playing, you’ll surely say to yourself –”it doesn’t get any better than this.” The now annual Sasquatch! Festival at the Gorge, gives nearby Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival a run for its eclectic offerings.

Notes: “Harpua” was teased toward the end of the “Piper” jam. Trey forgot all of the words to the third verse of “Cavern,” only just pulling it together in time for “deadly ice calm” line. He then eked out a quite self-referential “Purple Haze” tease before coming back in with the fourth verse. “Limb by Limb” may have contained some “Disease”-type jamming.
