SignManJoe I usually don't review, but here goes....Very happy with this show. First time in the Pit and I'm glad we were there!

1st Set
Bathtub was GREAT! Page on FIRE.
Guelah was a special treat. Was my second and a put a smile on my face.
Alaska was smoking! Really powerful version.
ICE was FIRE! Page ripped up the clav over and over.
Poor Heart was on fire as well. Page just kept slamming the piano keys like there was no tomorrow or end to the song. I noticed Trey look over at him, because he extended the solo section and didn't even blink and eye. No hiccup because of this either. Kept on rockin’!
Enjoyed hearing Mountains, as it was my first and most people's first, no doubt.
Awesome Meat - as usual when played.
Stealing Time is always a favorite of mine and into Bowie, even better....
Bowie was dark and rich and full over ups and downs. Really was a different jam than I was expecting.

2nd Set
Fuego (i know, again)...B/S! This was a 19 minute jam and a half. Quickly becoming a favorite and this version really helped. Had seen the one at Charlotte as well, but liked this one a whole lot more. Had a lot of turns and jams and was really filled with great playing.
Jibboo was fun. Not one of my favorite tunes, but quick little jam and fun.
Meatstick Only my 2nd time and it was ripping. 10 mins of high energy Trey and brain shocking!
Piper was fun. Nice jam and nice segue into Billy Breathes.
Seven Below kept the easy flow from BB and worked its way nicely into Waste. This was my 2nd Waste and it really special. Really had everyone into it and was a touching moment, for me at least.
Number Line is great. I always love hearing this song. I really enjoy the lyrics and the feeling that it gives me. Trey hit the wrong last chord and got a look from Page, but he walked back to Fish and got it going to fix the chord and end the song right.
NOW.....NOW HERE IS TREY! I can't speak for anyone else, but this might be my all time favorite FIRST TUBE! Trey was on FIRE! He was AMAZING. The talent that he displayed was great. Every note and every power chord played, played through me. I actually was a little confused at what he was doing with his guitar at the end of the song. I felt kind of....is he being cocky and saying "Hey look at what I just did". And then I realized, YES YOU DID! You deserve every bit of praise from every person that was in that 6500 capacity (NOT SOLD OUT???) venue! You are a king! You just ripped the place apart. Hold that guitar high above your head. Bow and let us praise you!
