Phish in Canandaigua @ Constellation Brands Performing Arts Center: Setlist & Recap

Jukebox Tour #2 continued in Canandaigua, NY this evening, where Phish debuted a cover of The Beatles’ I Am The Walrus. The quartet usually performs at Darien when visiting Western New York, but this year – for the first time since the memorable Fleezer show in 1995 – the band returned to the Constellation Brands Performing Arts Center.

When looking at the distance between stops on Phish’s Summer Tour, tonight’s gig stood out as a major pain in the ass for fans attempting to see the whole run. Somehow those out of the way shows always have a way of providing a rarity of some sort and in this case it was the Beatles’ cover. I Am The Walrus wasn’t new to one member of the band – Trey Anastasio performed the Lennon/McCartney tune with his infamous 70 Volt Parade ensemble 18 times in 2005. The Phish version of I Am The Walrus featured an intense psychedelic jam that somehow worked its way into Weekapaug.

This show featured the Phish debut of I Am The Walrus.


The Connection opener and I Am The Walrus were the only tour debuts of the evening after a performance full of them in Maryland on Sunday. Yet, Phish delivered one fan favorite after another in Canandaigua including Harry Hood, Reba, Mike’s Song and Down With Disease – as well as another Curtis Loew cover – to the delight of fans. In what’s becoming a Tuesday night tradition, the group encored with First Tube. Phish heads south to the Time Warner Cable Mus…I can’t even type that. Walnut Creek – Phish Tour moves on to Walnut Creek in Raleigh, NC on Thursday night.

  1. I do believe I stepped into a time machine last night…. That was some of the best Music I’ve ever heard!!! I am the walrus was just a pile of cherries on top of the sundae!!!!! I’ll never forget the way that place came unhinged during funky bitch, and the possum to open the 2nd set was absolutely blistering… I’m still hurldling through space from last night. Wooooooooo-hooooooo! In the immortal words of Thin Lizzy; “the Boys are back in town”
