Phish Tour 2021 – Setlist, Recap & The Skinny: Nashville Night 2

Phish tour reached the one-week point on Wednesday as the band returned to Ascend Amphitheater for their second of two shows in Nashville. Repeats finally started with four songs making their second appearance of the run. While Wednesday’s first set had it’s moments, the six-song second set was an all-killer, no-filler affair filled with impressive improvisation.

The quartet opened the concert with the Phish debut of guitarist Trey Anastasio‘s “Evolve.” Trey wrote “Evolve” with Tom Marshall and Scott Herman while quarantining in his New York City apartment last year and recorded the song for his Lonely Trip LP. “Evolve” was played live by Anastasio at NYC’s The Beacon Theatre as part of his second “The Beacon Jams” livestream concert on October 16.

Filling the two-slot in Nashville was “Free,” the first full repeat of the tour as “Weekapaug Groove” was played briefly in Arkansas before receiving the complete treatment in Alpharetta. Once again the Billy Breathes track was slightly extended with a tasty funk workout.
