Phish Mailorder Stub Red Rocks 08/06/96

Tuesday, 08/06/1996
Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO

Set 1: Makisupa Policeman, Rift, Suzy Greenberg[1] > Simple, Theme From the Bottom, The Lizards, Dinner and a Movie, Horn, Run Like an Antelope[2]

Set 2: The Curtain > Tweezer[3], Prince Caspian, A Day in the Life, Big Black Furry Creature from Mars, Hold Your Head Up > Purple Rain > Hold Your Head Up, Harry Hood[4] > Tweezer Reprise

Encore: Johnny B. Goode

[1] Simple tease.
[2] “21 year old Phish Fan Marcus Esquandolas” was substituted for “Marco Esquandolas.”
[3] Norwegian Wood jam.
[4] Debut of “Hood” response chant.

Notes: Note the “This is Red Rocks, This is the Edge” quote from Trey during the break in Rift. The quote was a reference both to U2’s Live: Under a Blood Red Sky album and Trey’s similar remarks on the Junta-released version of Icculus. Suzy included a Simple tease. The phrase “21 year old Phish Fan Marcus Esquandolas” was substituted for “Marco Esquandolas” during Antelope in reference to a fan’s quote in a newspaper article on the disturbance in Morrison the day before. Tweezer included a Norwegian Wood jam. Harry Hood featured the debut of the “Hood” response chant, initiated by Phish.netters and advertised on flyers handed out at the Red Rocks shows. Among other ideas, the flyers encouraged fans to shout: “Hood” after the band sings “Harry.” It began to rain in the second set; the band responded with Purple Rain, and Chris Kuroda showed the stage in purple lights. The performance of Simple from this gig appears on the Carved in Stone CD benefiting The Rocks Fund, dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Notes: During Ya Mar, Trey thanked the audience, saluted a Colorado swimmer who won two gold medals at the Olympics, and announced that a special guest would come out later in the set. The last three songs of the first set were all Phish debuts and featured Tim O’Brien on mandolin, acoustic guitar and lead vocals. During the Forbin’s narration, Trey told of a giant iguana that would take the crowd to Mars to view the life there.
