Watch Phish’s New Light Rig In All Of Its LED Glory

first_imgWith one show under their belt, Phish has already started things off with a bang this summer, kicking things off last night with a bust-out-heavy show at the Xcel Center in St. Paul, MN. With fans anticipating new material from the album they recorded in Nashville this spring with producer Bob Ezrin, the band surprised fans by skipping the newer material, instead choosing to play a series of rarely-played covers, such as The Beatles “Dear Prudence”, Velvet Underground‘s “I Found A Reason,” and traditional bluegrass song “Daniel Saw The Stone.”However, the real surprise of the night was the debut of Phish’s new and improved, LED-based light rig. We gave you a sneak peak at the rig from Phish’s rehearsal earlier in the week, and last night we got to see their new production in all of its glory. With swirling, synced up visuals, moving monitors, and a whole new canvas for lighting designer Chris Kuroda to work with, we can only imagine the fireworks that will come as the band and their team get used to the new setup.Check out some videos of the new light rig below!End of “Simple” -> “I Found A Reason”, courtesy of YouTube user madpickn:“Mike’s Song” + “Weekapaug Groove”, courtesy of youtube user madpicken:“Bouncing Around The Room” (complete with a huge crowd singalong!), courtesy of YouTube user lifeboyfourtwenty:“Dear Prudence,” courtesy of lifeboyfourtwenty:“Horn”, courtesy of YouTube user 777jones:“Walls of the Cave,” courtesy of YouTube user 777jones:“Ghost,” courtesy of YouTube user 777jones:last_img read more
