Number of shows since they last played [Saturday] night's biggest break-out, "My Sweet One": 24. It hasn't been heard live since last October in Virginia.Phish brought their current tour back to NYC over the weekend for a three-night run (July 11-13) on Randall's Island (where Governors Ball happened and where Electric Zoo happens soon), their first time playing there. Among the three covers mentioned in Rolling Stone's by-the-numbers review above were TV on the Radio's "Golden Age" and The Velvet Underground's "Rock & Roll." Did you go to any of the nights? Did you go to all three? If you can remember, you weren't there, amirite?
Number of songs in the encore: 3.
Amount of people who explained how rare it is for the band to play that many songs in the encore: Equal to the number of people I sustained eye contact with on my way off Randall's Island. 40?
Total number of songs played over entire weekend: 57
Number of those that were covers: 3. This has been a tour light on covers.
Number of total songs off [new album] Fuego played over 3 nights: 9 of 10. (They didn't play "Wombat.")
Longest jam of the entire weekend: A 27-minute rendition of "Chalk Dust Torture" on the third night. [Rolling Stone]
