I had no idea so many Phans were into Dream Theater!

I'm not much of a fan myself, but I was close friends with a group of heads in college, and ended up going to a few shows. What a great live act. I can't stand their studio stuff though.

Yeah, I don't really listen to their studio stuff much (other than Lawn Boy- I just love that one!) but the live show/atmosphere is such a fucking blast.
Oh Jackie, always jumping to the most homoerotic possibility.

Ok guys and gals- pay attention to current Phish summer 2016 tour. Best so far, imho, since they came back in 2009. Anyone catch the shows at Wrigley? Wow wow. That disease > Fuego > 20 Years Later > Also Sprach Zarathrusta was MONEY. Not to mention an a Capella rendition of Space Oddity! And Night #2 Set 2 flowed like buttah. Best Fluffhead in a long time. And the I Am The Walrus encore!!!  Wook hoooooo!!!!!

I'm going to night 2 of Mann, Night 1 of SPAC, and Hartford. This tour is great so far.

By the way Magnaball (Phish's 10th festival in 2015) rules, and is one of the best things they've ever done. 8/21, 8/22, 8/23 2015. I'm not just saying that because I was there.

Nice darkshade! Totally agree with Magnaball. Never listen to jaded vets that say Phish is no longer good since the 90s. I been seeing phish since 95 and they are just as exciting now, if not more- if just by the fact their repetoire has expanded! That Tweezer > Prince Caspian from Magnaball which I really consider Tweezer > Caspian > Tweezer (Fishman clearly returns to the Tweezer beat) .... WAS JAW DROPPING amazing!

Mann is going to be awesome. Have a good time!!!

I like the Magnaball Bathtub Gin a lot. Yes, that Tweezer>Caspian is epic stuff. The Drive-In Jam from night 2 blows me away every time. That's some deep music.

Thanks. I always make it to at least one Mann show since they went back there in 2014.

95? That's awesome. IMO there's great stuff from every year they've played.

Yes, that Gin is definitely the best of the 3.0 era (2009+) Drive in jam blows my mind too - wasn't there but was listening live on the Bunny radio.

FYI - interesting info coming in on their new album. Apparently that awesome percussionist that does a lot of Broadway (Hamilton) plays on almost every tune and described one track as 15 minutes w/ classical percussion!

In case you haven't been following, the band has been on a roll with releasing archive shows during the pandemic. They've released some epic shows recently, 11/28/94, 6/14/95, 7/8/94, and 8/1/98 just to name a few.

They just released 7/23/97 today, multi track recording. Sounds absolutely amazing. One of the best versions of Ghost. I love 97 Phish.

Since I first listened to a Phish album in April last year and until now they have pretty much become my favorite band. Wonderful in every way.

For the 3 or so phans on DTF:

It's not every day Dream Theater announce a new album AND Phish tour starts tonight in a couple of hours after a year and a half 'hiatus'.
