There were Phish heads everywhere, maaan.

There was funny energy in the room before Phish took the stage to kick off its New Year's Run 2015 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

It's unusual that the first of a four-night Phish gig is also the big NYE celebration. Usually, that occasion is the climactic finale to the series of concerts. And usually, the band has the luxury of easing in to the run by starting a bit slow.

Last night, though, Trey Anastasio and company had to begin and peak at the same time. This process was initially a bit awkward. But Phish and the audience eventually achieved liftoff in a big way.
