Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw After a fantastic ice breaker of a tour opener the guys reveal the recipe they will use frequently for the rest of the show. A slightly shortened show with a short yet laser focused 2nd set.

The entire first set is excellent Gumbo is always a treat and Maze has a great peak and a nice stretch to it. 2001 is also notably good. Antelope has some nice whistling that makes it unique and a great finish.

The 2nd set is the design you know and love from this entire tour (and 11/17/97 has it as a 1st set). Wolfman is a nice warmup for the big ones to come. The segue into piper is fantastic, especially considering how difficult it is to seamlessly segue into an awkward intro like piper has. Twist which is new like Piper gets a nice stretch to it and a very experimental one at that. After all this you get an epic Slave to end the set, it has a great stretch and a patient and beautiful peak. just excellently played.

Bold as Love is very well played as an encore, not much more you can say!
