Phish Hasn’t Forgotten About "Reba," "Fee" and "Taste"

Phish - 6/4/11 "Possum" from Phish on Vimeo.

Here’s “Possum” from Saturday’s show

Phish returned to Cincinnati, OH’s Riverbend Music Center for the first time in almost eleven years last night. The group’s first set featured the tour debuts of several fan favorites, including “Mound,” “Taste” “Reba” and “Fee.” Like all the versions of “Fee” since late last summer, Trey Anastasio sang the song’s verses through a megaphone.

The group’s second set featured two extended segues. The first moved from “Carini” into “Tweezer” and Free” while the second segued from Talking Heads’ “Crosseyed and Painless” into “Light,” Steve Wonder’s “Boogie On Reggae Woman” and “Julius.” A 20-plus minute take on “You Enjoy Myself” closed the set.

Phish will perform at Mansfield, MA’s Great Woods tomorrow.

I love Phish. I wish they had new songs that were cool.

They do. It’s called steam and it was crazy good at blossom.

Riverbend was fire. Was my first Phish experience, but it turned me to a believer. Always did a bit of listening — but definitely seeing the show turned me over to a phan. Plan to catch em again.

They have plenty of new songs. They are on tour and will bust them out at some point. If you dont know the new songs here is a list so you can catch up
My problem right there
summer of 89
burn that bridge
show of life (which isnt that new but still..)
plus all the new covers and many more I cant think of now
Give the boys a chance it is a long tour and they will bust out these new ones for us.
