After an unbearably long hiatus from touring due to COVID, Phish returned to the stage for the first time in 521 days. While the band has been gracious with Dinner and Movie nights, a new album and performances from Trey abound, nothing beats the real deal.
Speaking of Trey’s prodigious pandemic output, Phish started the first set with debuting one of Trey’s quarantine tunes “I Never Needed You Like This Before.” This tour opener in Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion marked the bands debut in Arkansas as well.
