MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
New York , NY
This show was night three of Phish’s Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Garden and consisted of a red velvet donut theme. Red velvet donuts with cream cheese frosting were given to fans arriving at the venue and the show featured the Phish debut of Sunday Morning with Trey on drums, and Fish on vocals. Fish came out on stage for Sunday Morning wearing a stole and mitre. He also lifted a censer with burning incense at one point and even sprinkled “holy water” on the crowd. The venue was draped in red lights for the “velvet” themed songs: Sunday Morning and Sweet Jane (both Velvet Underground covers) and Wading in the Velvet Sea. Trey teased Streets of Cairo in Back on the Train and Super Bad in It’s Ice. Wolfman’s Brother was unfinished. Sweet Jane was played for the first time since June 29, 2012 (193 shows). This show was webcast via Live Phish.
