The perks of the VIP bus to Phish’s Dick’s show, real and imagined

You've heard of the "A" Line, but what about the "J" line? Imagine being escorted from a central location (like Cervantes in Five Points) to the home of the Colorado Rapids over at the soccer field at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City in the "kush" confines of a shuttle just in time to catch Phish "Jaboo" their way through the cluster flies of "Farmhouse."

Phish returns to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in 2016

For the last several years, Commerce City has been taken over by Phish heads come Labor Day weekend. But as Phish wound down its all-time, eight-tune encore on the final night of its fifth Labor Day weekend stand at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park last September, frontman Trey Anastasio offered high praise for the band’s soccer pitched visits, but only offered up that “hopefully” they would return again.

Watch: Phish performs an extended set on Letterman Trey Anastasio, Mike Gordon, Jon Fishman and Page McConnell are back -- as in lighting the Ed Sullivan Theater on "Fuego" back. Phish is in full summer show mode and celebrating the release of their latest album, "Fuego." Trey shredded, as usual, with extended guitar noodling and impressive improvisation by the guitarist.
