Watch the epic Grateful Dead show from 6/20/92 with Bruce Hornsby and Steve Miller sitting in on the last few numbers

Watch the epic Grateful Dead show from 6/20/92 with Bruce Hornsby and Steve Miller sitting in on the last few numbers.  

 This is a great show from 1992! I love the Setlist and Jerry and Bruce bring tremendous energy thoughout the show. Steve Miller who opened the show comes out and joins the band after space for some classic moments.

    Beginning this year a free download of your Phish show as been downgraded to just a free stream. They do offer a discounted price if you want the download. Since it was free I should not complain, but I would be lying if I did not express my disappointment. One cool thing is you just have to scan the ticket, but that cuts two ways. Gone our the days of finding stubs on the ground and giving the codes to your friends that could not make the show. But that is rendered meaningless without the free download anyway. I guess it's still something, but I used to rationalize the high price of the ticket with the free download. Bottom line will this stop me from going to Phish shows? Hell no, that choice is reserved for when they play the same venue for two straight weeks.

LivePhish releases the O.J Show from June 17, 1994 from the Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

LivePhish releases the O.J Show from June 17, 1994 from the Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin 
 
  Livephish just released a classic show from the archives. It has everything we love about Phish. It has humor, satire and some unbelievable jamming. I recall being at the show and quite spun wondering why they were singing about O.J. I missed the whole Bronco chase. Once my crew settled into our hotel room and turned on the idiot box, we all shared a huge laugh. Gotta love The Phish! 
Here is the description from livephish 

On June 17, 1994 Phish played the Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the largest and most ornate room in The Rave/Eagles Club complex. The show is available now for download and streaming via LivePhish+ and the LivePhish App: bit.ly/ph940617 The landmark “Million Dollar Ballroom” was opened in 1927 with an oval wooden dance floor and domed ceiling ringed by balconies, with a capacity of about 1,500. It was Phish’s only show in the haunted ballroom but their second performance in the building, having played The Rave in spring 1992. This was the “O.J. Show” performed during O.J. Simpson’s slow-speed Bronco chase. Highlights from 6/17/94 set I included the “Runaway Jim” opener dedicated to O.J., a dynamic “Foam”, “Split Open And Melt”, and “Punch You In The Eye” > “Bathtub Gin”. The band thrice showcased their latest song, “Simple”, during set II: in its usual slot out of “Mike’s Song”, a unique mashup with “I Am Hydrogen”, and within the “Harpua narration. 6/17/94 Milwaukee was recorded by Paul Languedoc to 2-track soundboard DAT and mastered by Fred Kevorkian.
