ThePhanastasio This was a really good show!

The first set was grooving, and The Moma Dance > R&R was a definite highlight for me. They're playing really tight right now, especially considering this is only the fourth show of tour. If they haven't worked the rust out yet, I'm excited for even more awesome things to come later. I will say that there were a few Trey flubs in The Divided Sky and in You Enjoy Myself (most noticeably those two), but the rest of the show more than made up for it.

The second set overall was full of jaw-dropping goodness. The Drowned > Maze was completely nuts; for the longest time, I didn't even see Maze coming out of that jam - I thought they were going into Ghost for sure. But Maze was perfectly placed, exciting, and a lot of fun.

The You Enjoy Myself was remarkable to me in how very great Mike sounded. Not that ever really sounds bad, but I thought his You Enjoy Myself was a real standout for him at the show.

Page, as per usual on this tour, was definitely the man. Fish was on point. Big Red showed that he can still play fast and faces can still be melted.

Most importantly, you can really see that they're having fun, and that's what makes it all worth it.

Thanks guys for a killer show!
