Phish San Francisco Death – Phish played their first of two fall visit shows at the Chase Center in San Francisco on Friday night.
The band appeared to be quickly agreeable in the new field, playing broadened motivated jams from the get-go in the principal put directly through the finish of the show — with the show-shutting, 19-minute “Carini” checking probably the best ad-lib the band has played at any point ever in a reprise.
The Chase Center accepted its Phish dedicating with “Possum,” showing up in the show-opener space interestingly since July 16, 2017. A clear, high-energy go through the melody was trailed by “Halley’s Comet,” which was expanded — somewhat — prior to yielding the improvisatory floor to “46 Days.”
The jam became hazier and dingier as time passes until keyboardist Page McConnellappeared to lead his bandmates into a delicate major-key area.
This last portion streamed into “Slave to the Traffic Light,” which hadn’t shown up in the center of a first set since June 15, 2010 (however it had opened one originally set and opened another from that point forward).
Guitarist Trey Anastasio’s supports and Jon Fishman’s moving drum emphasizes made this an astounding adaptation of “Slave.” Next up was “Simple,” which included another jam that was amazing, however, investigated totally unexpected sonic area in comparison to the night’s past trips. This one was a cadenced facility, with Trey and Fish collaborating for a swinging funk groove that got the group boogieing for a long time.
“Shade” and “Winterqueen” gave a breather, however, the last highlighted a stunning Grateful Dead-esque jam. Good times “Meat” followed, with a few “YEAH!” The set finished with “Run Like an Antelope,” which scarcely remained on the tracks — as is valid for all incredible adaptations of “Gazelle.”
