Phish: December 30, 2022 Madison Square Garden






My eighth and final Phish show of 2022 was the night where I entered the arena with the least expectations. The previous night (posted here) had been such an outstanding performance, that I felt like this show was basically a “bonus”. But man, did Phish disagree. 12/30/22 is currently at the top of the yearly statistics as the highest rated show, and for good reason. This show smoked from the opening notes of crowd favorite opener “Down With Disease”, and continued throughout the first set including a tight “Reba”. But the highlights of this show for me weren’t the “hits”, but rather the two songs that opened the first forty minutes of the second set. “No Man’s > Golden Age” were so well jammed and veered off into such interesting territory that I lost track of what tune what actually being played. But it didn’t matter. This was Phish 4.0 at its best, and like all three of the New Year’s week shows I attended, I felt lucky to be there to see it.

I recorded this set as I had the 12/29 set, with the Neumann hypers from an advantageous position in the first row of the taper’s section, and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
