Last week, Phish kicked off their summer tour with a 3-night stand at the Huntington Bank Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. Recently, the band shared pro-shot footage of their performance of “Simple” from the July 15th show. Watch it above, courtesy of Phish’s YouTube.
This 27+ minute version proves that the group can still excite their fans with exceptional improvisational jams. Throughout the video the band settles into a relaxed groove, with Page creating a spacey keyboard vibe while Trey, Mike, and Jon hold a tight rhythm. At about the 13 minute mark, the band taps into their Pink Floyd side with a subtle prog rock jam, allowing Chris Kuroda’s dazzling stage lighting to be on full display.
The full concert audio for every concert on tour is available for purchase and download through the band at LivePhish.com.
