Today in Phishtory: 4.3.98 Nassau - The Island Tour

Phish achieved perfection in 1998.

Sadly, I wasn't at the Island shows. I was living in Seattle at the time and I couldn't afford to fly to the east coast. Several of my friends caught the shows and said that they were fantastic. I eventually heard a show or two on a ratty cassette tape.

Thankfully Phish released the shows and I was able to hear them all. Click here to buy 4.3.98 via

Anyway, here's the second night of that infamous Island Tour which happened 10 years ago to this day...
4.3.98 Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY

Set I: Mike's Song> Old Home Place, Weekapaug Groove, Train Song, Billy Breathes, Beauty of my Dreams, Dogs Stole Things, Reba, My Soul

Set II: Roses are Free > Piper > Loving Cup > Run Like An Antelope

Encore: Carini > Halley's Comet, Tweezer Reprise
If you don't know, someone ran up on stage and Pete Carini tackled him. That night's version of Antelope includes references to Carini.
