Phish Gorge ‘09: Setlists, Reviews, Video, Audio



August 7-8, 2009

The Gorge

George, WA

Phish “Gel” at the Gorge

Hit “play” above for HD Phish Gorge videos.

Last night Phish kicked off a two-night stand at the Gorge in George, WA — returning to the majestic amphitheatre for the first time since a set of July 2003 shows I was fortunate enough to attend.

From the setlist to the seques, night one looks promising on paper, and the Twitter updates seem to suggest the same:

Another Majestic As Fuck bit of improv…
segues have been gellin'

The Gorge shows mark the end of the West coast leg of Phish's Late Summer Tour, following 4 nights at Red Rocks and a stop at Shoreline. After this they're heading to my hometown of Chicago, then it's off to to the East coast for stops at Darien, Hartford, Merriweather, and SPAC.

Watch the space above for the best videos I can find from the shows, and scroll down for Phish Gorge setlists, audio, reviews, and photos as they become available.

I’ve lost track how many shows I have been to. The Gorge takes the effing cake man! I just finally rolled in the door from the road ending my trip at Merriweather (bummer).

The Gorge was the best show(s) on the tour.

Check out us killing time on the lawn after the show:


Saturday’s set at the Gorge changed my life. It was refrickendiculous. When they did “Good Times Bad Times” the whole thing went intergalactic.
