Philly Phish. The circus migrates to Philly for the first of two nights at Mann Center. The show was delayed due to a storm, but when Phish finally took the stage, the let it rip. Oh, and if you're keeping score at home (or betting on setlists like I do), then you'll probably want to know that Phish busted out the first "cover" of the summer with 2001. In the summer of 1993, Mann was the location where Phish first performed Also Sprach Zarathustra aka 2001, which was a funky version of Deodato's arrangement of the Strauss composition.
Phish Philly Setlist, 7/8/14 Mann Center, Philadelphia, PA
Set 1: Axilla I, Gumbo, Taste, 555, Tube, Halfway to the Moon, Camel Walk, Sparkle, Halley's Comet, ICE, Ocelot, Walls of the Cave
Set 2: 46 Days > Fuego > The Line, Backwards Down the Number Line, Tweezer > Ghost > 2001 > Hood > Tweezer Reprise
Highlights for 7/8/14: So, about that 26-minute Fuego is what everyone is talking about? Yeah, it lived up to the hype. But, they really extended Tube! This 6-minute rendition was juicy compared to the 4-minute speedy versions from last summer.
