Phish Shares Pro-Shot Footage Of Smokin’ “Blaze On” From Dick’s Night One [Watch]

first_imgOn Friday night, Phish opened their annual Labor Day weekend run at Commerce City, CO’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Park with a memorable, highlight-filled performance. In the aftermath of Phish’s first 2018 show at Dick’s, the band has shared pro-shot footage of their mid-first set “Blaze On” from night one.Coming out of an unusually-placed “What’s The Use?”, this “Blaze On” saw Trey Anastasio lean heavily on his delay effect as the band built the song to a smoking peak. This rendition also featured a skillful Page McConnell piano solo (“Blaze on, Leo!”) that energized the sold-out Colorado crowd and audibly amused Trey, as he smiled and laughed through the song’s remaining lyrics. The 12-plus minute “Blaze On” was accented by Chris Kuroda’s lighting magic, as he periodically held the high beams over the energetic field of fans to let the band enjoy the scene from their perch on the stage.You can watch pro-shot footage of Phish’s Dick’s night one “Blaze On” below:Phish – “Blaze On” [Pro-Shot][Video: LivePhish]Phish wraps up their 2018 summer tour tonight with their third and final performance at Dick’s.
