Phish Loves Dick’s (and an “Emotional Rescue”)
Tonight Phish closes out their 2013 summer tour by opening a three night run at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. Last year the group opened their run at the venue by constructing a setlist where the first letters of the first 12 songs on their setlist spelled ‘fuck your face," the name of the ’80s Phish song the band brought back in 2010. The night also offered a "We love Dick’s" theme vocal the “You Enjoy Myself” vocal jam. Today we revisit that jam along with the versions of “Emotional Rescue” and “Fuck Your Face” that closed out the second set. The complete setlist appears at the bottom of the page.

Friday, August 31, Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, CO
E: Grind, Meatstick 5
Notes: The first letters of the songs of this show spelled out “Fuck Your Face” before Fuck Your Face itself was played. Before You Enjoy Myself, Page said, “We’re so happy to be here, we love this place, we really do…We love Dick’s”. Trey and the band then led the crowd in a “We Love Dick’s” chant. During the You Enjoy Myself vocal jam, “We Love Dick’s” theme emerged with such lines as, “Page loves Dick’s, Mike loves Dick’s, Trey loves Dick’s, the band loves Dick’s”. Ocelot included a Crosseyed and Painless tease. Prior to the second set, Trey wished Matty from the Waterwheel table a Happy Birthday. Runaway Jim and Chalk Dust were unfinished. Emotional Rescue was played for the first time since September 30, 2000 (236 shows). Fuck Your Face contained an Emotional Rescue quote.
