This is the show I really wanted to see. The Asheville Civic Center is a 7,200-seat venue that seems smaller than it is. Trey has said how much he loves Asheville in past tour stops with TAB, and with this being Phish's first-ever foray into this gem of a city, tonight's show has all the fixin's to hold a special place in Phish-lore for years to come.
