New LivePhish Release: 12/06/1997 Auburn Hills

The next LivePhish release has been announced and it includes a show many fans have wanted to see officially released since the night it happened – a December 6th, 1997 performance at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Best known for the mind-blowing Tweezer > Izabella sequence from the second set, there are plenty of other gems included in this Fall ’97 beast of a show.

Set for release this coming Tuesday, September 25th, this show will be available both as a download from and as a 2-CD set. Each source comes from former sound engineer Paul Languedoc’s DAT Stereo Soundboard Tapes and have been lovingly remastered by guru Fred Kevorkian.

Set I highlights include an intense second-song Run Like An Antelope, alien landscapes of Train Song and seamless pairings of Bathtub Gin > Foam and Fee > Maze. Set II was a unified, non-stop affair: Tweezer > Izabella > Twist > Piper > Sleeping Monkey > Tweezer Reprise. As they rounded the bend into the final week of this storied fall tour, the band had a confident swagger that exploded in The Palace with a flood of combined energy that flows through on the tapes. The Palace is deep in the suburbs but this Saturday night show in the home of The Pistons was a slam dunk that reverberated throughout Detroit Rock City and beyond.

    Spur of the moment trip to 12/6/ and 12/7 might be the best decision I’ve ever made… First set Gin>Foam is the underrated beast here, with a huge Antelope and Maze as well! And setII… goes without saying!

    These old boomy auds have been begging for an upgrade for 15 years!

    So excited to hear a crisp version of this! I was at this show and it was my first Twist and Piper, which I thought was a spontaneous jam at the show.

    We had 12th row center for this gem and the place was nuts the whole night! After the first set my friends and I were like WOW, but then the second set happened and that officially hooked me for life even though this was about my 10th show. To this day the palace show remains my favorite show on my favorite tour.
