Uncle Pen was played for the first time since August 17, 1997 (136 shows). Makisupa featured Trey on keyboards and included the keyword “NORML.” At the end of Rock and Roll, Trey jokingly thanked the show’s sponsors, NORML and the (musical) Key of “A.”

Review by Stecks

Stecks Another show of the "Page McConnell is NOT a baseball player" portion of the tour - he came out on crutches (apparently from a sprained ankle sustained during a softball game). Nice thing that he gets to sit for shows, another advantage of playing keys. Venue was lousy - the aisles were set up such that we were constantly being walked over (the friend I went with had enough of it and was being a jerk). I was living in Peoria, IL at the time, and ended up meeting up with some dudes I met earlier that summer who went to Illinois State at their dorm/apartment to pre-party! (Bradley basketball still is superior to ISU). The NORML keyword was pretty obvious (As ISU is in Bloomington/Normal). Uncle Pen opener was fun, JJLC was an obvious choice, nice Ghost>Sample.... Excellent encore! If I remember correctly, Trey sang some of Mike's vocals during Funky Bitch but I could be completely wrong (oh fungi... how you have the ability to distort one's perception of reality, you industrious little organism!)

Not the best show I'd seen, but still had a blast.

Review by Fikus

Fikus My 7th show, located a quick 45 minute drive from U of Illinois. Lights went down almost immediately after we got inside at 7:30. Seats were behind the stage, Page-side, and there was a lot of room - definitely not sold out.

Overall, a standard show, with a couple odd setlist choices. Some highlights/notes:
Uncle Pen - great opener, got everybody bouncing and extremely well-played considering it was such a bust-out.
Funky Bitch - after a 136 show bustout, they decided to play a song they had played the night before. Good version, though.
Rest of 1st set was played really well - esp. Jesus Just Left Chicago. Wilson > Disease was an energetic one-two punch at the end.

Second set sounded great and was fun. Ghost was very strong, though it was a pretty rough segue into Sample. Loved the transition between Wedge and Bag, as Bag picked up off the Wedge's last beat. Sand was very groove oriented, as was normal for the time. Good, rocking show but nothing earth-shattering.
