Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw You know typically every single tour opener can be added up to something as simple as a "Warm up show". This label need not apply to this show, it is for the lack of a less cliché term "Fire".

Right from the get-go CDT gets things moving to lightspeed quick. BEK is in it's most infant form but does it's thing. Theme is fantastic like literally every other version from '97, very inspired. Melt is fairly average but good. You'd think the set may be done after my soul....Or maybe they'd stick Cavern or Character Zero after it for good measure. But they unveil YEM in the first set of the first show! And boy it's pretty tasty! And after all that you still get Character Zero to light one last fire for the set.

Stash kicks of the 2nd set somewhat in the same vein as the Amsterdam version. However this one goes in a different direction but is still very solid. Mike's song is just top notch excellent as is the absolute incendiary version of Weekapaug to end the set.

Standard encore but the room is already destroyed so who cares?

Probably the best tour opener I've ever heard.
