I was there... moved aboput 1.5 miles from 6:30 thursdfay night until 10 on saturday morning. I was one of the people who got turned away from parking, but nearly all tbose who were turned away decided to hike in. They didnt turn anyone away that walked, the only reason why they stopped letting people in was because the mud was so bad that cars were getting stuck and the tow trucks that came to pull them out got stuck too. I had to walk about 14 miles to the show with all my gear, but it was definatly worth it. It was amazing to see hopw well the 30,000 people who were turned away pulled together and found a way to make it. Alright, now ill talk about the music. Well, IMO, it was amazing. it was the first time i had ever cried at a concert, and i did it at multiple times. Truthfully, I dont give a shit about what people were saying about trey being too fucked up. If he wanted to be, then that was his perogative. It was their l;ast show and it was to honor them. I wass just there to give them the respect that they deserve and listen to what they w3anted to play. That show was definatly aqbout them and not about the fans.

YEM: Yeah, Page was crying a loit during WIAVS, but Trey broke down multiple times throughout the show (at the end of yem, during a few of his speeches,, during wolfmans, and he left the stage on sunday night balling and being held by mike). You could tell it was a real emotional time for the band, im sorry you didnt get to witness it.

Sorry if any of what i just said doesnt make sense, i hjusty woke up after the first sleep ive gotten in days, and im still really groggy.

I'll have to agree with Thunderbong about the convenience of the movie theatre versus the inconvenience of a huge muddy crowd surrounded by tens of thousands of people. The theatre view was great and you could actually see what as going on onstage.

Thanks for sharing your story.  That is awesome you walked the 14 miles. I would've done the same thing. Fuck, I wish Id've been there.  :sad:

well i thought it was fucking great... maybe the shows weren't the absolute best in phish's career, maybe they didn't bust out gamehedge or fluffhead (or even susy greenburg! :frown: ), but it was still simply great! i mean, after playing together for so long, and knowing this was their last show, i don't think you could expect the guys to just forget that and play a normal show... and from being there and pretty up-close, i wouldn't say trey (or anybody else) was all messed up on drugs, i think it was just the emotion of the whole thing...

and yeah, i waited in traffic for like 35 hours, and then walked 20 some miles to get there, but it was definitely worth it!

i couldn't really say... i personally was a bit out of my head during both nights, so wouldn't consider myself to be the best judge of trey's mental status... in my opinion, i would say that it was more the emotions of the night that caused the band to not be on the top of their game... but then again, it might have been massive doses of lsd!

Krishna, did you see the way he kept scratching during his final little speech about the cabin or whatever the hell he was trying to say?

haha, yeah it might have been... now that i think about it, he did go through that same speech twice (the first time before David Bowie on the first night, and then before the last song as well... it seemed like he had forgotten that he had gone through that speech the previous night :grin: )

Sadly, there was no LSD involved there. He was doped out of his mind. I can't imagine what it felt like to be his Mother watching that show. I think it was a fitting end for such an incredible band though. I imagine there was a day when Jerry looked just like that on stage. :sad:

:shrug: i guess we'll never really know if it was just emotions or something harder that caused those last sets to look as they did... but trey's mom really did boogy down on stage (mike's mom, on the other hand... :lol: )

i got to hear the final speech on the phone cause my cousin called me and the first few minutes of The Curtain [With]. I'm glad i could hear that atleast live. I'm surpised though that there weren't any 2 song encores or that they didn't do a late night set like at previous festivals, oh well. I really wish i was there.

they really seemed to have planned it out - to end with The Curtain... the crowd stuck around, a little "Fluffhead" chant started up, but, as Trey said, the band felt that they had gone full circle, and it was time to end it...

i heard a number of people yelling fluffhead when my cousin called.

and i heard a chant of people yelling "PHISH! PHISH! PHISH!" for a little bit...i don't know if it was just by him, but it sounded like quite a bit of people were yelling it.

The Curtain is a cool song, and they had the With part which is cool.

My cousin really likes that song so that would be a great last song for him to see, i can't wait to hear his stories.

well we stopped in Burlington, picked up two tickets (had to pay 500 bucks for them, though :frown: ), and then cruised towards coventry. We picked up two more tickets in line on the highway, but they turned out to be fake! no matter, though... they didn't check tickets at all, and we all managed to find wristbands on the ground (except for one friend, who just walked in the big crowd and was never noticed)... the two real tickets we have we are gonna refund, to save a bit of cash from the fake ones we bought, so we ended up paying 150$ a ticket anyway, which is what they were selling them for!
