Weekend Nuggets: Let’s Move to Cleveland

12.8.95 CSU Poster

A lesser known show from the month of December ’95, this one from Cleveland rips.  A double Beatles encore on the anniversary of John Lennon’s death, was the icing on the cake of a psychedelic roller coaster ride.  The second set featured extended improv in the form of a set-dominating “Tweezer” with a “Kung” chant in the middle.  Following what seemed to be a set ending Reprise, the band droppd into a thrashing Antelope to close. Check it.

I: Sample in a Jar, Poor Heart, Simple > Runaway Jim,  Fluffhead, It’s Ice, Acoustic Army, Prince Caspian, Good Times Bad Times*

II: Also Sprach Zarathustra > Tweezer > Kung > Tweezer > Love You > HYHU, The Squirming Coil, Tweezer Reprise, Run Like an Antelope

E: Come Together**#, A Day in the Life**

*Dedicated to “the man in the dragon pants” (Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin). **Encore played in remberance of John Lennon’s death on 12-08-80.  #First time played.

rumor2A few new things have been thrown in my direction lately.  Since Bonnaroo is in early June (11-14th), Phish may do one tour in June, around these dates, and a second tour in August.  I have not heard anything about the length of either tour.  Though I have been told they are going to hit all their classic amphitheatres, and not exclusively in multi-night format.  Those six hour night-long drives may not be a thing of the past!  The Red Rocks, Gorge, Shoreline, and Alpine stands that have been reported all seem to fit this format.  I haven’t heard anything about the east coast yet, but you can predict those shows yourself.

This two-tour format would make sense in light of the second rumor I heard from a different source, that Red Rocks will be the four nights of 7.30 – 8.2  As always, stay tuned, and don’t believe anything until you see it on Phish.com!

  1. that cleveland show is such an enigma for me. it was a last minute thing for to go, i had done most of the shows in November and Oct. and this one i didn’t have a ride or tickets until a friend came through. They were not my normal tour buddies, their idea of warming up for the show was drinking whiskey the whole drive there. So I ended up failry trashed whent hte show started. I had never gotten drunk at a show, always just lifted smoke-wise or psych. It was the last time i got drunk at a show. No fun. I do remeber the Tweezer>Kung being really cool and I remember the Come Together being awesome. That’s about it.
