Phish just wrapped up their three night Halloween Run (Review) at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall, and one of the most memorable moments saw legendary actor Abe Vigoda make an appearance during one of Phish's many new songs, 'Wombat'. As soon as their new song mentioned Abe Vigoda, as an inside joke most likely, a performer in a large wombat suit appeared on stage and broke into dance, along with a few other dancers. After the song, Trey invited the performers on stage, except with Vigoda in the wombat suit, without its helmet, implying that it was the actor himself doing the dancing.
Abe Vigoda made a name for himself in the 70s with memorable roles in The Godfather and Barney Miller, but has more recently become a pop culture icon since surviving several death hoaxes. The actor called into WGNTV in Chicago to talk about his recent experiences with Phish,
"Halloween night…it was a lot of fun…it was just wonderful. I was told it was 38,000 people in this auditorium, and so I had a very lovely time. At my age, yet! Could you imagine?"
Even at 92, the actor is still churning out random works, as he explains,
"Yes, I've been busy….I've been busy one way or another. Out of left field, people do call from different areas such as this one. I find myself busy with interesting projects."
Phish also recently released the full length video of their performance of 'Wombat' on Halloween, which you can see below.
