It’s pretty obvious that Phish’s Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Garden was a monumental feat. If you’re anything like us, you’re probably still reeling from the historic string of shows and wrapping your mind around what could be considered Phish’s finest since their 1998 Island Tour. Now that we’re a week out from the end of Baker’s Dozen, we’ve decided to help you relive the run’s glory by compiling all of the setlists (via as well as all the available pro-shot videos that our favorite quartet from Vermont released during their thirteen-night residency at Madison Square Garden. Enjoy!
