The Hampton Coliseum, The Mothership – a classic arena in Dead lore and Phish lore alike. The venue is famous for its spaceship-like appearance, intimate size, impeccable sight lines, and of course the legendary shows that have graced its stage.
Last night was surely a real treat for Furthur, playing their largest venue of the tour, albeit not sold out by any means. The band went for an 80s pychedelia feel for the show, dusting off gems like Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again, Picasso Moon, and Dear Mr. Fantasy, accompanied by a nice mix of 60s tripper material including Viola Lee Blues, Dark Star, and Masons Children.
