Phish @ The Fox

Following their biggest show of the summer to the 80,000+ festivarians at Bonnaroo last weekend, Phish played the smallest venue of their summer tour last night – the intimate 4,500 person capacity Fox Theatre in St. Louis. The most hyped show of the summer and probably the hardest ticket, the Fox performance seemingly fell short of expectations (at least on paper). Despite the ‘McGrupp’ bustout in the encore and a 2nd set Mike’s Groove, the new song, ballad, and repeat heavy setlist has fans hailing this as the ‘sleeper’ show of the summer. Let’s just hope the boys are saving up for the tour-closing 4 show run comign up this wekend.
