Review by theghost

theghost This was May 8th. They started the tour on February 3rd! At first you might think, wow, what a life. Traveling the country, making music and new friends...and making money too. But think about the best vacation of your life. Imagine that at the end of it someone says, oh no, you're not going home yet....we're doing this for three more months. Jeez, they went all the way down the eastern seaboard from Maine to Miami, all the way across the south to New Mexico, up to Colorado, down to So. Cal and all the way up the west coast to Vancouver. Then they meandered back through the midwest, up to Canada again for a bit, and back to the northeast for a bunch of shows there. And then on this epic tour ender, they pull off a heroic sprint to the finish.

This was just a fantastic show...one of the very best of the pre-96 era. I always thought of this as sort of a companion to the following year's closer to another ironman tour... 7/16/94 in Vermont. Both have AMAZING second sets... just packed full of greatness. This one has the better first set though.

My highlights here are Stash, Bowie, Coil!, Crossroads, and the special Amazing Grace jam, but there's so much more than that. True hall-of-fame material here.
