Highlights From Phish's 2019 Denver Labor Day Shows

Never underestimate the power of Phish. With a career spanning nearly 40 years, members Trey Anastasio, Mike Gordon, Jon Fishman, Page McConnell and Jeff Holdsworth still have tricks up their sleeves, and constantly find ways to surprise their audience.
This weekend, Phish returned to Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City for its annual "Phish Dick's" Labor Day weekend run of shows.
Phish heads were treated to deep cuts, live-debuts and a few covers... so enough with the chit chat– check out the highlights from the weekend!

Friday – August 30

Phish did not disappoint opening night, with a 20-song main set broken up into two sections and an encore of "Say It to Me S.A.N.T.O.S."
The first set kicked off with "Can't Always Listen" and "Free," but the lyrics in the latter were changed to "flea."
They played songs like "No Men in No Man's Land," "Back to the Train," "Poor Heart" and "Blaze On" before getting into the second set, which consisted of songs "Mercury," "Party Time," "What's the Use?" and Trey Anastasio Band's "Everything's Right" (which I guess is technically a cover?)

Saturday – August 31

The story of night two was The Story of the Ghost. Phish played "The Moma Dance" and "Ghost" and kicked off the encore with "Brian and Robert."
Set one included a deep cut– "Access Me"– which hadn't been played live since 2012! There was also a subtle lyric change in "46 Days" ("taste the fear, for the plague is drawing near") during the second set, as well as unfinished renditions of "Weekapaug Groove" and "Down With Disease."
Other highlights included Trey Anastasio songs "Set Your Soul Free" and "Drift While You're Sleeping," and a cover of Son Seals' "Funky Bitch."

Sunday – September 1

Phish heads were bobbing to a 25-song performance Sunday night, which even included a live debut!
That's right– Phish live-debuted Trey Anastasio song "Sightless Escape" on Sunday during the second set.
The band played Mike Gordon's "Crazy Sometimes" and Richard Strauss' "Also spranch Zarathustra, Op. 30" and changed the lyrics in "Stray Dog" to "Plague Dog." Other highlights were "Bathtub Gin," "Chalk Dust Torture" (unfinished), "Cavern" and "Tweezer Reprise," which closed out the show.
