Live Phish Vol. 18 is an album by Phish. It was recorded live at the Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas on May 7, 1994.

The show is sometimes referred to as "Tweezerfest" because of a seamless second set that features elements of the song "Tweezer" in almost every song. Throughout the hour-long "Tweezer" experience, the band moves in and out of improvisational jams and riffs from random cover songs like Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion" to The Breeders's "Cannonball". One of the show's jams occurs after Jon Fishman croons Prince's "Purple Rain".

Bonus tracks include a segment from a concert at University of Missouri on November 22, 1994.
