After Friday night’s nod to their oceanside venue with tunes like “Sand,” “Ruby Waves” and “Sigma Oasis,” Phish followed up on Saturday night with the second of three performances slated to take place this weekend at Atlantic City Beach in Atlantic City, N.J. The first set of Saturday night’s show brought forth the rarity, “Heavy Rotation,” performed for the first time since 2015. Then, during the night’s second set, Phish stimulated the senses of their vitalized crowd with the sound and feel of a jammed-out “No Men In No Man’s Land” and “Tweezer.” 

Night two got underway with a segued pairing of first set staples “46 Days,” which dipped into “The Moma Dance.” The night’s second song references the land beside the sea with the lyrics: “The moment ends though I feel winds/ Blowing differently than ever before/ And they’re pushing me further from shore.” Next, Phish dug into the first “Olivia’s Pool” of the year before covering Clifton Chenier’s organ-focused number, “My Soul,” a song that has been a part of Phish’s repertoire since it was first performed live in 1997. “555” arrived next, with a lusty guitar solo carried by Trey Anastasio. 

The first set continued with a well-jammed “Bathtub Gin,” which saw Mike Gordon playing with his bouncing bassline, exemplified by Jon Fishman’s backbeat and Page McConnell’s electric piano. Next, a rare moment occurred when Phish arrived on “Heavy Rotation.” The tune was first played live on July 22, 2015, at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend, Ore., and only performed for the second time ever at last night’s concert. Then, the foursome shifted into “Character Zero” and ended the set on a cover of David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” which initially appeared on the seminal 1972 LP The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

Phish’s second set kicked off with a jam-filled “No Men In No Man’s Land.” The opening number saw big moments by Anastasio, who rhythmically poked Gordon as they dove deeper into the improvisation. The latter flowed into “Tweezer,” which saw a continuation of jams and space. A concise take on “Set Your Soul Free” arrived before the band shifted focus to “Simple,” which bled into “Backwards Down the Number Line.” Fan favorite “Golgi Apparatus” came before the night’s set ender, “Slave to the Traffic Light.” 

For their encore, Phish landed on “A Life Beyond The Dream” as their opener before “Tweezer Reprise” paved the way home, giving the band a stopping point at which they could land and rest before following up tonight for the third and final stand of 2022’s summer run in Atlantic City Beach. After their time on New Jersey’s sandy shores, their trek North to Ontario, Canada, for a one-night stand on Aug. 10 at the Budweiser Stage, before dropping down to East Troy, Wis., for another three-night stand, this time at the fabled Alpine Valley Music Theatre from Aug. 12 through 14.
