Bonnaroo Sunday: Phish full-set video, Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, more
“I just wanna let y’all know that my outfit rip,” she told her audience, just a few songs into her set. She pressed through for a couple of minutes, then vanished from the stage. After a time-filling singalong of “Old Town Road,” she reemerged — in a white bathrobe.
“We gonna keep it moving, baby,” she said. “We gonna keep it sexy. I don’t know how in this (expletive) robe, but we gonna do it!”
[…] Needless to say, it was a zoo around “Which” stage, as fans scurried for a vantage point.
Cardi B, her dancers and tireless hype man tore through every hit she’s enjoyed in three short years: “I Like It,” “Money,” and her collaborations with Bruno Mars (“Please Me,” “Finesse”), Maroon 5 (“Girls Like You.”) and closing with her breakout chart-topper “Bodak Yellow.” [The Tennessean]
After kicking off on Thursday, fully taking off on Friday, and continuing on Saturday, Bonnaroo 2019 wrapped up on Sunday (6/16) with Cardi B, two Phish sets, Brandi Carlile, King Princess, Princess (Maya Rudolph & Gretchen Lieberum), The Soul Rebels, The Lemon Twigs, Bombino, Faye Webster, and more. That’s an excerpt of The Tennessean‘s review of Cardi B (who suffered a wardrobe malfunction and then performed in a bathrobe) above, and here’s an except of Live For Live Music‘s review of Phish:
Set two—the final set of music at this year’s Bonnaroo—kicked off with a short and sweet “Mike’s Song” which the band dug into with dynamic focus. Wasting no time, they flowed out of “Mike’s” and into one of their most beloved pieces, “Fluffhead”, marking the first time ever that a “Fluffhead” has followed “Mike’s”.
After a nice big peak to end Fluffhead, the band slinked into “Twist”. Quickly moving through the song’s structure and into improv territory, Fishman set the tone for an airy, melodic jam. The band picked up momentum as Trey peppered in dextrous trills, flirting with both “1999” and, later, “What’s The Use?”. The improv expanded in sonic scope to a lush, luminous boil before Trey drove them into “Weekapaug” to (seemingly) close out an unheard-of “Mike’s (Fluffhead Twist) Groove”, complete with ecstatic Fishman “woos.”
Page laid down some super funky synth as “Weekapaug” began to pick up steam. However, after two short minutes, the band executed a seamless detour into “No Men In No Man’s Land”, Trey belting out the lyrics with particularly contagious charisma. After some extra cheers for “happy that we’re here,” the abbreviated dalliance with “NMINML” quickly returned to “Weekapaug”, with Page flexing his chops on the piano. But wait—out of “Weekapaug”, “Twist” emerged once again. Yep, it’s one of those sets.
