On December 31st, 2003, Phish played (what I consider to be) one of their best New Years shows ever. The whole run was solid, being in Florida again for Phish brought back memories of Big Cypress four years prior, and each show of the run had standout moments – Jibboo, Suzy and Hood from 12/28, Rock n Roll > Twist > Boogie On and the double encore of 12/29, Sand > Shafty and George Clinton and P-Funk joining the band on 12/30 (among many other highlights that night) – so 12/31 was going to be the icing on the cake.
With great seats and planning in advance, the following footage was recorded. Here it is, for the first time. Let’s hope they return to American Airlines Arena this New Years Eve.
