6/18/94 = best.show.ever.


12/30/97 is no slouch though.

Saturday, 06/18/1994 UIC Pavilion, University of Illinois, Chicago, IL
Soundcheck: All Things Reconsidered, How Many More Times

Set 1: Wilson, Rift, AC/DC Bag, Maze, The Mango Song, Down with Disease, It's Ice, Dog Faced Boy, The Divided Sky, Sample in a Jar

Set 2: Peaches en Regalia > David Bowie -> Mind Left Body Jam -> David Bowie, Horn > McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters > Tweezer > Lifeboy, You Enjoy Myself, Chalk Dust Torture

Encore: Bouncing Around the Room, Tweezer Reprise

Notes: Tweezer included Mind Left Body teases. Bowie included Three Blind Mice, Voodoo Child and Purple Haze teases. YEM included Frankenstein, How Many More Times, and Landlady teases, as well as a Monty Python “Spam” vocal jam.

======================================================================================
Tuesday, 12/30/1997 Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
Set 1: Sneakin' Sally through the Alley -> Taste, Water in the Sky, Punch You In the Eye, Stash, Chalk Dust Torture, A Day in the Life

Set 2: AC/DC Bag -> McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters, Harpua > I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) > Harpua, Izabella > Harry Hood -> My Soul, Sleeping Monkey, Guyute

Encore: Carini -> Black-Eyed Katy -> Sneakin' Sally through the Alley, Frankenstein

Notes: AC/DC Bag included Psycho Killer and Third Stone From the Sun teases. I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) made its Phish debut and was sung by Tom Marshall as part of the “Pentagram Harpua,” which also included a narrative about Lost in Space. Pete Carini made an appearance on-stage during the encore. Frankenstein included a segment with Fishman coming center stage with his vacuum. The encore was unusually long; once the band realized they were going to be fined for playing past midnight, they decided to play well past midnight. Sneakin’ Sally was played for the first time since May 28, 1989 (920 shows).

6.18 no question. Absolutely fantastic show. Peaches > Mind Left Body > Bowie = :shock: .

It's amazing that this is a #1 v #8 match-up, beacuase 12/30/97 has the greatest encore of all time, as well as that HUGE 2nd set Bag opener.

6/18/94 got a touch draw here in RD1. I feel confident though that the Peaches>MLB>Bowie, McGrupp>Tweezer>Lifeboy, YEM 2nd set can fend it off. lest we forget the greatest (IMO) DSky ever played, courtesy of 6/18/94 as well (and possibly the DWD too :think: )

It's long... but not the greatest. Kind of like the Bag.

That's what she said. :P

12/30 is a great fun show, but 6/18 is almost perfection, IMO.

Yeah I really agree with this. This bag is way overhyped IMO. Don't get me wrong its a great jam, but I often hear it mentioned as a contender with 09.14.99 for best Bag of all time, and it is not even close.

:shock: I feel the same way about 12.30.97 honestly. I think 12.29 is better.

Agreed. I'll take 11/21 over this Bag any day...having said that I voted 12/30. Harpua takes it.

Will is absolutely right, huge does not always equal good, see Burgettstown '98 "Jim." (For me anyway).
