Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Trying too hard for the tour ender.

Chalkdust is a peaky and explosive start to the show. Foam is strong and stretched a little bit. Character Zero is in the middle of the 1st set which is quite odd. Another slightly stretched out and strong Divided Sky. Straightforward but well played Waves. Average Sample.

Another explosive set opener in R&R. Piper quickly goes into a groove and Page adds some good flavor to it. The jam is pretty repetitive with the guys adding something every little bit. The segue into Boogie On is just fantastic, Mike nailed it. Antelope is it's typical ripper to end the set.

Probably the most notable part of the show is the encore. They do a total fakeout with First Tube (pretty standard standalone encore song) and then BAM! Goes right into YEM, the crowd must have lost it. Proud Mary although a cool debut isn't half as interesting as it sounds in the setlist.

This show has the feel of the guys giving it one last strong push to end the tour. The issues come with the sets not particularly flowing too well and some issues connecting and playing inspired.
