Wow, talk about a nice surprise! Page McConnell came out and played four songs with Trey during the encrore at Roseland Ballroom. Page is by far my favorite member of Phish and it was a nice unexpected treat to see 1/2 of Phish together. Page played tenatively on Strange Design. He then got a little more aggressive on Waves. And kicked ass with Trey on Waste. For the second encire, Page, John Medeski, and Peter Applebaum came out for First Tube. Trey had four guys on keyboards at the same time. I had been debating all night whether the show was better that the Aladdin Theatre in Las Vegas show. Page coming out for the encore was the tie-breaker. If you skipped Roseland Ballroon, you missed a pretty good show.
