30 For 30: Phish Through the Years (Part Two)

December 02, 2013

As the '80s turned into the '90s, Phish's audience began to grow exponentially. From clubs to theaters to arenas, the band became an arena rock powerhouse. Along with the growth in popularity, Phish also honed their sound too, never being afraid to experiment with a different type of improv style or transition. As these final video selections prove, Phish will forever be a timeless act. Regardless of era, the band has a way of delivering their brand of music in an honest and sincere way, much to the delight of their fans.

Check out select videos from 1994-2013, the highlights of which include the stellar UIC Pavilion "David Bowie," the famous December '95 Albany "You Enjoy Myself" as well as sit-ins from Jay Z, Buddy Miles and Merl Saunders. Despite there being some missing years in Phish's career at this point, the music remained relatively steady and some argue now that the band is as strong as they've ever been. Evidenced by fantastic 3.0 performances at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Denver, CO as well as the band's recent Wingsuit set, the future of Phish seems as promising as its past.
