Summer tour is here! Summer tour is here! Summer tour is here!!
Thats right today is the day that we have all been waiting for, it marks the kick off of Phish Summer 2010! Their first shows since New Years Eve and a start to what is sure to be a great summer for a talented band.
While getting all excited over tonights show in Chicago... (Shout out to birthday girl Brianna and Beth who have made the journey for tonights show). While I patiently wait until I see them in Portsmouth on Tuesday I can't help but sit and wonder what exactly is going to go down this summer tour. So while out reading some articles getting amped for next week I stumbed upon "Mr. Miners Phish Thoughts" page and he gave us his 20 questions for June, and well I completely agree. So now I pose you the very same questions: (some I may even give my answer)
20. What lasting impact will Joy material have in setlists? - As long as its "Stealing Time" and not TTE
19. What will Trey's "show shirt" be this tour?
18. What new covers, if any, will they incorporate? Hope some Genesis!!
17. "Free: Do or Die?"
16. Which shows will smoke harder - SPAC, Camden or Atlanta - ATL easy its fourth of july
15. What songs will emerge as the prominent jam vehicles of the month.... I'm calling Ghost.
14. Will the band minimize or shelve "TTE" after leaving it out NYE? - Man I hope so!
13. Will Exile have a lasting impact on the band? - I hope so!
12. When will Phish bust out "Liquid Time" - Hoping for Portsmouth
11. Will meathead Merriweather security guards ever stop pretending to be bouncers at nyc nightclubs? - Nope never will.
