Years later my memory of this show is a bit hazy, but at the time, it seemed like the closest thing to Phish that we would ever have again. Phish 3.0 was still 3 years away...

Anyway Benevento and Russo make a BIG sound, and they are great, but this show was still pretty rough around the edges. The acoustic songs with Trey and Mike were the highlight of the show, especially You've Got Me Floating, which had a very different pace and feel than the original Hendrix version.
Susskind Hotel and Who Are You also brought some heat to end the show, and the Guess Who cover These Eyes was a nice nod to the Canadian audience.
(for a different cover of These Eyes, Michael Cera sings it in Super Bad)
Score: 0
