Phish’s 2014 Summer Tour kicked off on July 1 at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA. The band has been mixing up their setlist more so this year than in previous tours. During their trio of shows at SPAC, the first two nights focused on new material, while their closing night focused more on older hits and compositions.
The band is celebrating more than three decades in the business, and throughout their shows, they attempt to cover their entire 30 year career. You will hear favorites like “Scent of a Mule,” “Undermind” and “My Friend, My Friend.” Some tracks from their latest album Fuego will be played, and fans can expect plenty of solos throughout the evening. Trey Anastasio’s solo on “Walls” is truly spectacular as are his performances on “Ocelot” and “It’s Ice.”
The band will play two sets during the 3+ hour show, and many of the shows are already sold out. If you haven’t bought tickets yet, you might be out of luck. No opening acts are scheduled, so the band really gives fans their money’s worth.
The tour kicked off in Mansfield, MA and will come to a close on August 31 at Dicks’ Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. Along the way, the band will make stops all across the country and performing two to three nights in some locations.
Fans can expect plenty of improv and explosive performances from the band. There will be drum duels, extended solos and excitement to be had when Phish takes the stage during their 2014 summer tour.
Phish got their start in 1983 at the University of Vermont. The band performed together for more than 20 years before taking a break in 2004. Phish reunited in 2009 with a series of three concerts in Hampton, Virginia. They continue to perform regularly and released a new album in 2014 titled Fuego.
