Phish is bound to pull a trick or two from under its sleeves on the jam band's first visit to St. Louis since its 2009 reunion tour. Expect surprises; this tour features rarities and covers not played since the '90s and early '00s. The band has honed its set list arrangements to pack a punch and keep energy high, while sporadically slowing the pace for the psychedelic crowd to catch a breath. Jams are structurally sound and primed with more funk, blues and rock & roll than in years past.

Know Your Scene: Jam bands feed off the crowd to create those historical improvisational sets. So elicit the most positive energy you can muster. You don't want to give anyone bad vibes.
