I love having a party time opener. It just sets the perfect mood !
I am not a song by song critical analysis guy in fact on some of it seems to stick long in my mind but I can say I was not bored at all at any of these shows, that is saying a lot because I am 46 and have seen soooo many concerts that I do easily lose interest. I loved the mellow mood and punch you in the was a blast. I dont really care so much for ac/dc but it was fine.. meat I have not heard before so that was cool and the bowie bouncing was fun as hell, the horn had nice audience participation but water - 46 days was great stuff. During the break I scored me a lime green phishy on a stick and was happily bringing it with me...
Second set.. Gotta Jibboo was really smokin and we were dancin up a storm, I dont know what the hell it means to Jibbo but I think I was doing it... the light was no where near what it was when I first heard it at the Greek last summer, but it was fine.. I was really happy to hear slave, I just love this complex tune... Then it happened, all those lime green phishies... turned out to be a rocket man !!! they simply had to turned upward heeheh.... Im a rocket man indeed... I love any hood, I just do.. Please dont slam the bug encores ... bug is a cool tune and the coil is without a doubt the finest testimony to the band's love of early genesis, this song just sounds right out of a steve hackett guitar clinic.
I have to say that trey was just SHREDDING !!! the band was epic ! and this show and next was a complete success in my book (in case you still read books -hehe)
