Phish: new archival release 09/18/1999 Coors Amphitheatre, Chula Vista, CA

Another archival Phish release is available for streaming and download: 9/18/1999 Coors Amphitheatre, Chula Vista, CA.

Starting in the Pacific Northwest (including Boise) in what was technically still summer, Phish’s fall 1999 tour landed at Shoreline for two shows. After Shoreline, the tour followed the lines going south more than eight hours to San Diego for a show the very next day. Coors Amphitheatre, as it was originally named, is a scenic 20,500 seat amphitheater built on a former dairy farm near San Diego and opened in 1998. Saturday, September 18th was the eighth show of fall tour and the first Phish show in Chula Vista.
The band rewarded those who traveled down to Chula Vista with a Tweezer opener that blew the leaves right off the palm trees. The fourth-ever Tweezer show opener (first since Island Tour) led to more Set I highlights like a hot Wilson > Maze and a deep grooving Tube > Rocky Top to end set I. In a mighty display of openers, set II launched straight into the stratosphere with a supersized Boogie On Reggae Woman. Next came the syrupy funk of Meatstick > Free, giving the Southern California crowd a chance to join the latest Phish dance craze. Set II continued with a dripping psychedelic Harry Hood, and a Contact > Tweezer Reprise encore that cemented Chula Vista 1999’s place in Phish history as the first-ever full-show Tweezer Sandwich.

Setlist and notes from phish.net:

SET 1: Tweezer, Roses Are Free > Wilson > Maze, Brian and Robert, Tube > Rocky Top

SET 2: Boogie On Reggae Woman, Meatstick > Free > Bouncing Around the Room, Harry Hood > Frankenstein > Cavern

ENCORE: Contact > Tweezer Reprise

Wilson contained a How High the Moon tease from Mike and Hood contained Stash teases from Trey. Trey brought a fan onstage from the crowd to help teach the Meatstick dance.
