Josh006 From my perspective in the Orchestra on Fishman side, TMWSIY> Avenu Malkenu> TMWSIY was the highlight... Then again, that was my first Avenu Malkenu and being a Jew who has to say that prayer every time he goes to Temple, that was really something special!

Great show, great time, great run... I did a pair of JB shows in '09 and again in '10, and was sad the venue was passed over in 2011 (damned jumper!), so I took both those shows as a grand return... Welcome back boys!

That being said, I didn't love set 2 on the 4th. It had some GREAT highlights, but Silent in the Morning/Show of Life/Slave to the Traffic Light all were a tad dull. Following the rage party the night before and the grandiosity of set 1, it was all good though... Did a lot of thinking during that set (mushrooms help) and just had a very life affirming journey as a whole over those two nights! Sad to miss SPAC (family wedding) but looking forward to San Fran in August.

Is it too bold a statement for me to declare that Summer 2012 as a whole has been the best tour since '97? Josh says no.
