Phish turns 1STBANK Center into a steam bath on first night of three-night stand - 10/10/10

10.10.10 | 1STBANK Center

One night after the Fourmile Canyon Benefit warmed up the 1STBANK Center, Phish turned the arena into a steam bath. The band took the stage just after eight, and aside from two suites that were going unused, the 6,500 seat arena was crammed. The band opened up the first set (and their fall tour) with "Chalkdust Torture," with the entire arena singing along with the chorus "Can't this wait 'till I'm old, can't I live while I'm young" -- sadly appropriate for those of us who had to get up and go to work today.
