In anticipation of Phish’s triumphant return to Red Rocks this summer, let’s look back on some of the classic runs that helped give this historic venue its name.
First, the Dead hit Red Rocks for two nights in July of 78′ – their first of two two-night stands at Red Rocks that summer. These are two great shows, each with monster 2nd set jam sequences and amazing song selection. The band had really hit a groove with Keith and were settling into their new found fame and arena sellouts nicely in the summer of 78′ and it shows on these bootlegs.
