Itch_to_the_nag While the no repeat run is impressive for about 99.9% of bands touring today, it was an unflattering look for phish tonight.

Forcing themselves to play songs just for the sake of not repeating created a disjointed 28 song show.

Dropping petrichor late in the 2nd set was the epitome of unnecessary. For a Sunday “tour” closing show this fell extremely short and might be the worst show of the run.

Nothing was misplayed but nothing even sniffed the deep end of the pool and a barrage of 5-8min songs left this fan wanting so much more.

No real relisten able moments based solely on completing a gimmick that was already achieved at MSG in ‘17 was very disappointing.

As the show unfolded it became crystal clear that we were going to be forced into moments tonight that nobody really wanted in order for phish to complete their “mission”

It’s been a long time since this band let me down in this fashion.

The old adage...even the worst phish show is better then no phish show barely holds true here.

This run produced plenty of amazing moments but tonight just wasn’t one of them.
