Phish Philly Spectrum 12/10-12/11/99

I was recently commissioned to create the setlist for the shows at the Spectrum in Philly back in 1999.  Working with some suggestions from the person requesting the shows, I included some Philly sports icons, Julius Erving and Ron Hextall.  This was a fun project, and it allowed me to draw up some new songs.  I’m always open to do commissioned setlists, although with summer tour approaching it could take a bit.  Feel free to contact me via twitter, facebook, or instagram.

I made a very small edition of these (only 5), and have 4 of each available for sale via my shop.
