Last night, Phish returned to the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater at Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh, N.Y. The two-night run marked the Vermont quartet’s first time performing at the 15,000-capacity outdoor arena since 2013.

They kicked off their second evening in front of Zach’s Bay with a run of “Mike’s Song” into “Wolfman’s Brother” into “Ya Mar.” They continued their jam-fueled set kick off with another three-song run of “46 Days” into “It’s Ice” into “All of These Dreams.” After a brief pause, they rounded out the set with one more run, this time with four selects: “Something Living Here” (marking its first appearance since Halloween 2021), melded into the darker “Axilla (Part II),” which was followed by “When the Circus Comes,” and finally “Run Like an Antelope.”

As the sun began to lower and fans at Jones Beach were blessed with a second perfect New York summer night, Phish started their completely segued second set with “No Men In No Man’s Land.” They then moved into “Type II” territory on “Down with Disease” before playing with some modulation on “Don’t Doubt Me.” The set continued with “Golden Age” into “Lifeboy,” followed by a rendition of “Flufffhead.” They closed the second set with “Weekapaug Groove.”

For their final song of the Long Island run of their summer tour, Phish played what many associate with the Empire State, “Slave to the Traffic Light.” Phish will perform next tomorrow, July 29, at the Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, N.C.
