Review by EdwardGRobinson

EdwardGRobinson Shoreline is one of the worst venues in creation. I remember being so disappointed when I went there the first time. If you are not in the pavilion you can kiss your ass goodbye.

I always figured they opened this show with Golgi because indeed "you can't even see the sea." Seems like you should be able to see it from Shoreline.

This was my first show after second hiatus and I was ready to go. Coming after the four nights at Red Rocks, there was a lot of chatter about this being a "sleeper show." It wasn't exactly that, but it did have some good moments.

The Suzy has some great Page work (noted by Fish). The entire second set is pretty good.
Slight lyric miscue in "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'".
Cities through the end is super fun stuff.
A pretty sleepy encore, but different, and I always like something a little different.

A lot of people didn't like this one, and I can understand why; but I really find this show to be underrated. Two nights later at the Gorge was one of the best shows of 2009 so if you gotta choose go for that one.
