Review by SlavePhan

SlavePhan THE GOOD: This show is best known for the glorious return of Slave as well as the Cocaine jam in YEM. But there are some other nuggets in this one that are worth a listen. The SOAM to open is the first of the tour to really come together while the Curtain features an absolutely perfect transition into Sample. The band had clearly become comfortable openly playing hey-exercises on stage at this point, and the Tweezer in set 2 is a great example. Page shines in Coil as well as in Slave, both of which are wonderful and are worth repeated listens.

THE BAD: Aside from the somewhat typical '93 first set which is incredibly short (59 minutes?), this show is fairly solid. While the Tweezer is wild and hey-laden, it also mainly seems like an improvisational exercise rather than a nicely flowing jam, which some fans may not care for.

ETC: Tequila teases are everywhere in this show (4 different songs!) but so are references to Hey exercises (Tweezer, Halley's). Try to figure out what Trey is saying during the breakdown in Tweezer - is it a garbled version of Hound Dog? Fish dedicates Rosie to Page's cousin, Jack (aka Tom Hanks) for his birthday. He also forgets the words quite humorously. There's a hilarious exchange when Trey dedicates Amazing Grace to the animals to go to sleep to, and an audience member yells out "Highway to Hell".
