Phish Lights Up Hampton in Reunion

So, if you haven’t heard about Phish’s comeback tour after breaking up in 2004, then you must be living under a rock. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get tickets to their three night opening run at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia, but the band was kind enough to release free soundboards from each night that were quickly put on the next day. After listening to each show I can ecstatically say the boys are back and playing with a vengeance. Opening with “Fluffhead,” a fan-favorite that hasn’t been played since 2000, they set the tone for the next three nights. After witnessing the trainwreck that was Coventry, their “final” show/festival and my one and only time seeing them, hearing the band (especially guitarist Trey Anastasio, who dealt with drug addiction and was practically nodding off while playing at Coventry) absolutely nail complex compositions such as the aforementioned “Fluffhead” and “You Enjoy Myself,” and looking like they were having the time of their lives while doing it, has put a smile on a face that won’t be leaving for a while. Here’s a phan’s video of the opener that gives me chills every time i watch it:

Can’t wait to catch these guys at Bonnaroo and hook it up with another review!!!
