Songs by Debut Year:
This show was part of the "1994 Summer Tour."
Punch > Sparkle is a nice way to open set two. Of the three '94 Gin's I have heard, this one is by far the best. It's quite energetic and has a nice peak. I really like it. Hearing Cities in '94 is odd. Considering that this is the only one played between '89 and '97, it's not a song associated with the era and it seems a little out of place, though it is a perfectly acceptable performance. YEM is fine, GGITS is fun, and the rest of the show is just fine and not really worth noting.
Highlight: The Curtain > Letter to Jimmy Page > If I Could, Bathtub Gin
Overall, a fun but far from essential performance from Summer '94.
