Review by AlecBGreen

AlecBGreen This was a solid show no doubt about it. It was my wife's first and was a great intro for her (not a huge phan). Nice solid playing throughout. Alaska was a welcome first live version for me. The Wilson was pretty hot. Divided Sky was clean and crisp and it became my wife's favorite song for weeks afterwards.

The standouts of the show were Tube, YEM, and the whole encore. If Tube doesnt get your booty groovin then you have a heart of cold stone. Page is on point and Trey adds some nice noodling, not to mention Fishman and Mike holding it down like only they can do. When Page breaks it open near the end (just after 7:00... you'll hear it) the crowd around me just groaned. Sooooo nice. The YEM was ragin too. Mike especially dropped some dirty cow shit all over everybody. I shouldve known when he came out wearing a cutoff shirt tucked into white jeans. He's a dirty man. The encore really hit it home to me that the boys are back in the groove after the long break and having a great time. Just listen to Trey cackle "Fishman will now play Bike for you!" as he sprinted for the drum kit. Fishman just shook his head, smiled and announced "Welcome to the trainwreck portion of the show." What a treat these guys are.

Overall very solid show, one Ive enjoyed relistening to many times over. Check it out!
