Tour Recaps: In Heavy Rotation [Online Phish Tour]

Backwards Down the Number Line – 7 appearances in 18 shows (38%)

Check Out: 5/28 – Bethel Woods, Bethel, NY – Summer tour kicked off with a bang in Bethel, and this 3.0 staple got its biggest workout of the whole summer.  As the tour wore on, BDTNL was used more for the tune’s sing-a-long qualities than its ability to break mold, which is what makes Bethel’s version so refreshing.  Sandwiched between Free and the Makisupa that gave us the “house” meme, this version stretches its legs and proves to be an exercise in improvisation and risk taking, instead of an emergency landing spot for a jam gone awry.  Complete with a Dave’s Energy Guide tease, this version, the first of the summer, becomes the go to version for 2011.
