Mike Vernal reports that they did the anthem thing on both 6/28 and 6/29/00. (Note phish.net only mentions it for
6/29, I believe.)
FYI, the Arts Center always plays the National Anthem over the PA before every concert - probably because of the NJ Vietnam Veterans Memorial that sits right next to the venue.
Thus the Anthem was played over the PA at both shows.
As I recall, Sinead O'Connor was prohibited from playing the Arts Center a few years back because she refused to have the National Anthem played before her show...
James is right - the anthem is played before *every* show at PNC. (As in, they also played it at last years' shows.)
Certainly, Paul had nothing to do with it; he is definitely not the one who says "Please stand for the National
Anthem" or whatever. Also, it's played right around the published show time - that means at least a half an hour
before Phish takes the stage.
Funny story: I was trying to walk down the stairs into the reserved section, when all of a sudden the flow just
stopped. Look in front of me, see that the ushers are physically preventing us from getting down the stairs. Then
the first strains of "The Star Spangled Banner." They wouldn't let us move again until after the song was over.
Enforced Patriotism? :)
There are several segues that aren't marked in the txt file. Check with phish.net for the full story.
Fabulous shows. So wet on the lawn 6/28! 6/29 was my girlfriend's birthday. :) Have fun!
Just for the record, Paul L. most *certainly* was the one to ask the crowd to stand for the national anthem. I was 8 feet from him, and watched him in confusion as he plugged an SM57 into the board, croach down low and mouth "Please stand for the national anthem."
I was pretty confused =) But he did it both nights.
just had to add my .02 in on the please rise for the national anthem comment. I work at the PNC Bank Arts
Center. I most certainly is Craig Getsch, The in-house Production Manager who says those words. He has been playing the same recording
since he started at the PNC Bank AC since he took over for Tony Melciore (Who used to announce it), who took over for Kevin Keith (who did
it before every show (including the Sinead O'Connor show....she played under protest)
don't mean to sound snobbish about this, but it is a fact that the house controls all announcements before the concert,
as well as all music played before the show, during intermission, and after the house lights come up at the end of show.
