After chasing a numbers-themed night with a straight-ahead show, Phish’s third night in Las Vegas returned to a theme with each song referencing an animal.

Fans quickly understood the animals theme, as guitarist Trey Anastasio wore a sweatshirt emblazoned with the image of a pig and the band opened with “The Dogs”> “Ocelot” and “Turtle in the Clouds.”

Highlights from the show included the band’s first take on Sam “Lightnin’” Hopkins’ “Shaggy Dog” since 6/22/2012 (show gap: 331) and their first version of The Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus” since 7/29/2017 (show gap: 130).

However, the real thrill was the second set visitation of “Harpua,” last played on July 30, 2017 (show gap: 129). According to, the beloved original included teases of “Carini” and “Your Pet Cat.”

“Harpua” also bled into early-Phish favorites “Bug” and “The Lizards,” before the band closed the show with “Farmhouse.”

The encored with “Vultures” as well as “Sleeping Monkey”> “Possum.”

Phish’s Halloween run ends in style tonight, Oct. 31.
