westbrook I Didn't Know makes its last appearance as an opener to get this show started, and you gotta love when Fish starts up the thunderous intro to Llama just as I Didn't Know climaxes. Guelah Papyrus>Scent of a Mule is straightforward, although there is a Simpsons signal in Guelah before "So maybe I could be a fly". Stash makes the familiar dark/minor key journey to tension/release land and Axilla II segues into the all-too-rare All Things Considered. Sample and Carolina end a satisfactory first set. It's about par for the tour.

The second set begins with the delays/effects signaling 2001, which drops right into a serious Bowie>Manteca>Bowie combo at its conclusion. This Bowie sandwich is the clear highlight of the show. It starts off with some tense, exciting playing, cools briefly, and builds back up to an even more intense finish. The Manteca segment is weaved in quite smoothly, as well. Lizards is a great choice after a jam segment because the start of the song provides some cool-down time, but the energy is picked back up by the end. At this point in the set, there's not much more jamming to speak off but Peaches through the end of the set is still quite enjoyable. Rift seems to have a little more zip on it than usual too. The encore of Fee>Highway to Hell is a nice bonus to end a solid show.

Overall, this is not one of the first shows of the tour I would throw on, but the Bowie>Manteca>Bowie segment is top-flight Phish and definitely a jam to seek out.
