A collection of photos from Phish at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA on August 31, 2021. Featuring Trey Anastasio, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon and Page McConnell.

Phish played two nights at Shoreline Amphitheater, in place of cancelled shows originally scheduled for South Lake Tahoe, due to the Caldor fire. The shows were filled with rarely played songs, long jams, deep bass grooves, blissful solos and tributes to fire fighters and those displaced from the fire. The late venue change and Shoreline limiting capacity to 12,000 didn't keep people away. Despite mandatory evacuation orders and the raging Caldor fire, many fans from the Lake Tahoe area traveled to see the Phish from Vermont. All were rewarded by fine weather, fresh air and an incredible two-night run of music including the third longest jam in Phishtory (Soul Planet at 47-minutes long). If people were on the fence about attending Dicks for the summer tour ending shows in Denver, well, I'd assume they are going now (as they should). It will be interesting to see how the band will follow-up the Shoreline shows and celebrate 10 years at Dicks.
