One of the worst shows I've ever seen. The crowd was lacking energy, the band responded in kind, and the lot scene at the venue has deteriorated with split parking and construction. No canopies on blacktop in 90° heat? I was disappointed for a hometown show and hope they pick it up tonight.
Bro saying worst show ever is as ridiculous as say most epic show ever. There are two sides to exaggeration coin that I guess some angry pholks forget. I can’t inagine what about the second show could make you feel that it was that diff of an experience? Did you simply take better acid the second nite me thinks? Cuz this was anywhere near worst show of the tour. Not to mention ever. And the worst show of a good tour like this is still going to be a solid show musically if you ask me. But the DWD and light jams from set two not to mention an increasingly rare traditional mikes>hydrogen>groove will be top candidates for Relisten from this tour overall when all is said and done. And the Bowie from set one is one of best ive in a while for a song that has stagnated in recent years. Not trying to bash you by your all or nothing attitude is kinda ridiculous in an objective thing like music and a concert. There really almost can be anything the band could do that much differently in show two that would make me or the majority of pholks I’d say, refer to night one as the worst show ever and then nite two as having redeemed themselves. In order to redeem yourself you have to have done something wrong in the first place and there was nothing other than an average to above average show that the vast majority of pholks left having enjoyed with a smile on their faces for the band to apologize for and have to “redeem “ themselves from. What exactly was so different in your own words from nite one that makes nite two great while nite one was “the worst show ever” in the bands 35 year existence? Just curious. Both nites were oppressively hot while nite one was hotter temp wise, so that’s my only takeaway. Nite two lacks a long jam vehicle while nite one had two but that is just an observation not saying it makes one better than the other.
