andychatfieldAs my 34th show that I had seen in person I was excited by "The Divided Sky" opener (promising to be as strong as the previous night). But as "Suzy Greenberg" followed, I suspected the show would go toward the more predictable crowd pleasers (like the "Down With Disease", and "Prince Caspian"). "Tears Of A Clown" in the middle of "Scent Of A Mule" was bizarre (planned?) but amusing. As "Mexican Cousin" closed the first set I hoped for a comeback in the second set. YES! Opening with "Run Like An Antelope" reminded me of the 1995 show at Great Woods with a person doing backflips (where there were now seats at the Tweeter Center...) But the song doesn`t end - it morphs into..."2001"! Another strong jam building anticipation, SO funky, as is "Tweezer". But as the "Tweezer" jam leads into "Hold Your Head Up" I felt that the Fishman song ruined the flow of this particular set. "Drums" was great, showing the bond between Trey and Fish. "Timber" always rocks, but have to admit I had hoped for a better ending (the last three songs: "Sample In A Jar", "Bouncing Around The Room", "Tweezer Reprise"?) I just thought maybe there would be a return to the unfinished "Run Like An Antelope"? Still a great show though. Thanks Phish!
