Egeffy I wish that there was a way that I could write this note directly to trey...but unsure how to do so I post it here. I have been to hundreds and hundreds of concerts. Starting with queen in 79 and phish in 91 at biddy mulligans ( I only went to a few phish shows after that time until festy 8) hundreds of dead and related show, and so much including current shows like MUSE and I might even check out a trey indirect recommendation of Kind Gizzard.. anyways the point of this is to express gratitude for THIS show.... wow!! rarely have I seen such a loving act, it was powerful, sadly beautiful, entirely compelling masterfully written and played, I really can not express how meaningful this was. Such heart and utter vulnerability was expressed, it literally took my breathe away. I stood in the GA pit at the greek in LA spell bound, needing to occasionally shish a few folks but otherwise in a captivated trance. Thank thank thank thank you Trey for showing up as a real person, not only for your dear friend but for us to witness. I hope this will give me strength to show up when it is time for me to do so again, as I have failed in the past to do so to the extent at I should have, consciously present and unrushed at the bedside of death. I had to go get a seat upstairs towards the end as I could physically stand up no longer, after I guess nearly 2 hours as I have MS... but the jams.. wowsa the jams were AMAZING... and let me say that "I am going to run" is just the perfect drug addiction summary... I hope you are still good and strong trey... your recovery allowed this message to shine though and your courage allowed the love of your lifelong friendship to reverberate in me...I was filled with the love you shared so much I hugged several people during the show with tears in my eyes! So once again thank you for this amazing gift that will really take time to fully digest and relisten more carefully!

Abe_Froman If I could like @egeffy review 100 times, I would. Spot on.

Ghosts of the Forest was a composed show, as opposed to what Phish fans are used to. But there was jamming (intense jamming on a few tunes) and a flow to the show that was expert. SO MUCH great guitar from Trey, but killer contributions from all. I also really liked how the album was the skeleton of the show, but there were many songs not on the record that made up the meat (Sightless Escape, A Life Beyond the Dream, Pieces of the Machine to name a few)

Beautiful night, beautiful venue, thank you Trey and band. Incredible.
