msommerfeld Wow, I don’t know what to even say, but i will try anyway. I only ended up deciding to come here after listening to Thursday’s spectacle, and did what i had to do to get over to Vegas and not miss any more of this madness. And boy (man) am i glad that i did. I never feel that seeing a set list on paper without streaming or being there can actually capture what truly went down in the building, and perhaps this is only partially an exception. I always say the last show i was at was the best, and of course there are some nights along the way that stand out (like an Alpine 7-14-2019). What i saw last night just completely blew my mind. The collective energy in the crowd that grew as the second set progressed, was unbelievable. These days shows are often judged by how many 20 minute plus jams there are. But that was not there last night and one may look at the set list if they were not there and not really understand what went down. I have walked out of shows before feeling that i have been entertained, pretty much every time i see Phish. But walking out of the MGM last night, it was not feeling the feeling that i forgot, but a feeling that i have never felt after a Phish show before. Ranking shows or ranking any piece of art for that matter has shortcomings, and probably should not even be done. But we humans are just animals, no different than the animals referenced in last night’s set list, and we like to rank, and classify art and experiences. So if i have to do so, i will say that was the BEST Phish show i have ever seen in my life. Love these guys, love this band, love my fellow phans, and anyone who has issue with that, well, you can suck it.
