Phish/Trey is LOVING Michigan right now, I got my phish.com newsletter today and saw the two press releases below – phish is releasing 12/6/97 as a Live Phish remastered release, and Trey Anastasio Band is starting their Winter Tour at the Fillmore in Detroit… SA-weet! Since moving to Detroit in ’04 I have gone to Cincinnati and Cleveland Ohio, Knoxville Tennessee and NYC to see a TAB show. But I have not seen them in Detroit yet. Probably the most exciting part of the TAB tour is the announcement of Cyro Baptista returning to the line up. if you dont know CB – make sure you check him out on youtube.
I cant wait for this show!
See the press releases below
12/6/97 Auburn Hills To Be Released at LivePhish.com and Dry Goods on Tuesday
On Tuesday, September 25, Phish will release “December 6, 1997, The Palace of Auburn Hills, Auburn Hills MI” as the next remastered show to join the ongoing LivePhish Archives collection. The show will be available as a download at LivePhish.com and as a 2-CD LivePhish Limited set exclusively from Phish Dry Goods. The release was created from Paul Languedoc’s DAT stereo soundboard mix remastered by Fred Kevorkian and contains 16 songs totaling two and a half hours of music.
Phish’s third show at The Palace on December 6, 1997 was yet another defining fall ’97 gig, with an under-recognized set I and a renowned set II that must be heard in one sitting, preferably loud with headphones. As they rounded the bend into the final week of this storied fall tour, the band had a confident swagger that exploded in The Palace with a flood of combined energy that flows through on the tapes. The Palace is deep in the suburbs but this Saturday night show in the home of The Pistons was a slam dunk that reverberated throughout Detroit Rock City and beyond.
