Review by humalupa

humalupa We were up in the lower portion of Section 214. The sound was clear, as were the sight lines.

Aside from the playing of a lot of new material, this was a classic example of the Saturday night special. Lots of energy and some thrilling peaks, but overall it was 'song-y' and Twist provided the only real Type-II action of the night. That particular jam had some legs, but it was clear they wanted to move on to I Always Wanted It That Way.

Unlike N1, the second set never found its momentum, and went between Type-I rockers and Trey ballads. Again, there's nothing to actively dislike here, and certainly no cause for concern, but nothing really stood out, and after the fantastic tour opener, this wasn't what I was hoping for.

The first set was pretty standard as well, although from Lengthwise onward, it was high-intensity and a whole lot of fun.

Overall, a fun show to attend, but I not sure I'll give it more than one complete re-listen. Three stars across the board for me.
