Phish continued their Mexican vacation on Saturday night, offering two full sets of bustouts and originals, including an opening take on Little Feat’s “Willin’,” their first since their Halloween 2010 recreation of Waiting for Columbus.
Other set one highlights included a revival of “You Sexy Thing” (LTP 8/5/18, show gap: 70), which the band segued through “46 Days.”
Elements of “You Sexy Thing” emerged again later, mashed up with the lyrics of “Makisupa Policeman.” (Beforehand the band also offered “Tweezer” and brought “Manteca” back in the rotation for the first time since 7/19/16).
Set one ended with a “woo”-filled “Twist.”
After setbreak, Phish opened their second frame with a vibey “Energy” jam. A “Soul Planet”> “Waves”> “Carini”> “Chalk Dust Torture” followed, as did a long jam into “Have Mercy”> “Life Beyond The Dream.”
Phish ended their third night in paradise with a rocking “Harry Hood,” and encored with a pairing of “Sweet Jane” and the always-rowdy “Tweezer Reprise.”
