Last night at Jones Beach Phish (@Phish) pulled out the biggest bust out in their history by opening the show with Little Feat’s Skin It Back. Having not played the tune since July 29, 1988 at The Roma in Telluride, Colorado, the 1,417 show gap edged out the Fuck Your Face 2010 bust out in Charlotte by only six shows. Thanks to the webcast offered by Live Phish for both of the Jones Beach shows, fans both in attendance and on #couchtour were able to catch the epic opener. Plenty of fans recognized the significance of the opening number and tweeted their reactions, below I’ve rounded up a few to get a feel for how special of a performance this was.
They’re nailing Skin It Back. Unreal that it’s even being played
