Review by DownWithSteam

DownWithSteam A fun start to the Mexico run. They seem like they havent missed a beat since MSG. Disease, Halfway to the Moon and Life Saving gun were epic and deserve listens. One set shows can be tough to rank but in reality its 2 hrs plus of Phish so it should not be very hard. Cant rank anymore so ill give it here, this was a 3.6

spreaditround PHISH, WEDNESDAY 02/21/2024
Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

SET 1:

Back on the Train: Standard.

The Moma Dance: Standard. >

Down with Disease[1] - Standard >

If I Could: When this came on I wanted to skip it. These past few years it’s criminal how Trey plays this tune – just strumming his way through the solo and don’t get me started on the vibrato, makes me want to puke. But in this one he does actually take a nice solo and injects life into a song that I used to love.

Everything's Right: Standard.

Halfway to the Moon: Standard.

Stash: Standard.

Alaska: Standard.

Destiny Unbound: Nicely jammed!!

Ocelot: Standard.

Julius: Standard.

Sand: Standard. >

Life Saving Gun: Standard.


The Mango Song: Very touching that they played this for Ellie. RIP.

Carini: Standard.

Summary: I guess I don’t understand the concept of a warm up show. Would rate as a 2.5/5.

Replay Value: None. Maybe Destiny?

[1] Unfinished. Lyrics changed to "dancing on my beach."

Review by mattybweston

mattybweston A songy, one setter of mostly Type 1 material in Mexico? If the past is prologue, this warmup show doesn't stand a chance if/when the ratings come back online. But no matter, just press play at Halfway To The Moon and you've got yourself a typical good/great Set 1 of Phish. Destiny is well executed, twin brothers Alaska and Ocelot bring the dancy blues breaks, and Sand>LSG heaps on the energetic bombast. The Mango encore is for Ellie is just one of those moments that glue us all together. 3.8 with the discounts for one set feels about right.

Review by destinynubound

destinynubound 2.5? This is an absolutely horrible rating of this show. This more than good DWD > If I Could with a solid Everything’s Right into a more than respectable quality run with Stash, Alaska, Destiny Ocelot, followed later by a fun Sand and punchy Life Saving Gun make this show worth more than the garbage rating this show was unjustifiably given. 3.8 out of 5.
