 Days Between jam from Page and Mike, several If I Only Had a Brain teases from Trey and subsequent strange lyrics from Mike and Trey, including an Uno reference.
 Ended akin to Coil, with each member of the band leaving the stage until only Page was left.
Notes: Birds included a Days Between jam from Page and Mike and several If I Only Had a Brain teases from Trey. Birds subsequently featured strange lyrics from Mike and Trey, including an Uno reference. Caspian was unfinished. During Meatstick, Trey and Mike put down their instruments, came to the front of the stage and taught the crowd The Meatstick Dance. Simple ended akin to Coil, with each member of the band leaving the stage until only Page was left. At the beginning of the encore, Fishman came out holding the Electrolux vacuum and the band launched into Terrapin (first since July 11, 1996, or 212 shows).
This show was part of the "1999 Summer U.S. Tour."
First set was really good set, and of course the Julius opener, in its rarity now as an opener, followed by Fee, and the nearly 15 min jam they put with that. Its as good as a start to any show Ive seen. It just set the pace for the entire show in my opinion.
And what can you say about the second set. One of the best BOAF out there. Page and Trey's interplay on Jesus Left Chicago works well, and lays down that bluesy feel. And to get a late set Tube-> and Simple closer, just phenomonal. I think this show, is more consistant than the previous years show(was at both) its just the encore from 98 makes pholks think the show was as good as that encore. From start to stop, I'll take this show over 98, anyday.
Over all a really good, high quality show, with no true low points, a show worth having, and puting in the rotation. There were alot of good summer 99 shows, and this is def one of them.
I give this show a solid 4.0
