Load remaining images Phish continued their smoking hot tour with a stop at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN, playing a great Sunday show for those who made the trip. Though the show was delayed by the rain, the band more than made up for it, ringing truth in the old adage, “Never miss a Sunday show.”The first set started with a surprising “My Friend, My Friend,” an unusual choice for the opener. The song hasn’t played in that position since 2003, but the band navigated the fun composition with a passion. From there, the band quickly kept the energy rocking with a jamming “Kill Devil Falls.” The song always rips, and Trey Anastasio was on fire throughout.From there, the band got into a funky “Camel Walk,” before bringing the fans into “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing.” A fun reference to the storms that delayed the show’s start, Phish took the jam into dark waters before rocking the ending. From there, it was Mike Gordon who took the lead on “Poor Heart,” bringing the bluegrassy tune out for its first appearance in 2016. That groove segued into “Tube,” which always brings the energy up, keeping the crowd rocking.“Halley’s Comet” came next, enticing the fans to sing along as the band led the carefree tune. Where “Comet” was lighthearted, “Maze” brought the intensity, capturing hold and unleashing its enchanting spell. Page McConnell really fueled the song’s ascending improvisational moments, taking everyone on a musical journey. He continued to take the spotlight for “Lawn Boy,” thanking the crowd and singing his heart out on the title track of Phish’s 1990 release.The band then took an opportunity to try out a new song, titled “Breath and Burning.” The slower song was a band debut, destined for the new album. From there, Phish took the energy up with “Saw It Again,” before finding “Theme From The Bottom” and closing out the first set with a funk laden “First Tube.” It was a great set, highlighted by tight musicianship.The second set was absolutely raging, starting with a well-executed “Punch You In The Eye” before grooving straight into the funk number “Back On The Train.” The upbeat jam heated up Klipsch with a vengeance, getting fans ready for what would come next. Phish then brought an onslaught of jamming, unleashing a soaring “Light” that segued seamlessly into the TV On The Radio cover, “Golden Age.” That funky tune rocked hard, and the energy kept on when Gordon started the bass line for Stevie Wonder’s “Boogie On Reggae Woman.”The song funked hard, raging for a rhythmic boogie down jam that eventually wound down, finding its way into “Wingsuit.” The Fuego song has a slower tempo, and Anastasio hit the Gilmour-esque guitar solo majestically. The band then played their song “Shade,” a ballad song that was debuted in 2015. The cool down moment set the stage nicely for the classic rocker, “Possum.” The bluesy number saw some great work from Jon Fishman, who leads the build up and jam perfectly in the song.After a brief pause, the band finished up the show with their cover of Velvet Underground’s “Rock And Roll.” The energetic song brought the house down, as Phish bid their fans a fond farewell to close out a great performance.Check out the full Phish.net setlist, below.Setlist: Phish at Klipsch Music Center, Noblesville, IN – 6/26/16Set 1: My Friend, My Friend, Kill Devil Falls, Camel Walk, A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing, Poor Heart > Tube, Halley’s Comet > Maze, Lawn Boy, Breath and Burning, Saw It Again, Theme From the Bottom > First TubeSet 2: Punch You In the Eye > Back on the Train, Light > Golden Age -> Boogie On Reggae Woman, Wingsuit > Shade, PossumEncore: Rock and Roll DebutNotes: This show featured the debut of Breath and BurningImages courtesy of Phierce Photo, check out a full gallery below.

The 148th Open Championship was a roaring success as Royal Portrush proved itself a superb host, having waited almost seven decades for the honor.For the first time since 1951 the Open returned to Northern Ireland and the Dunluce Links emphatically rose to the occasion. The addition of two new holes bolstered the challenge of an already demanding course, while the arrival of high winds and heavy rain on Sunday ensured it was a true test of links golf.After welcoming sell-out crowds and crowning a hugely popular winner in the shape of Shane Lowry, one thing is clear — it should not be another 68 years until Royal Portrush stages another Open Championship.
