Review by deceasedlavy

deceasedlavy Easily the best show of the tour. After an embarrassing Jim and Sand, Trey recovers his finger dexterity and plays more crisply and fluidly than he has all tour for most of the show. Gotta love this Tube, still contained but bristling with unusual creativity. A great Bowie would've really been sweet but this one's merely competent. Twist is sublime, the jam of the tour until it gets ruined by the godawful "Under Pressure" BS and never recovers. Jibboo is pure uplifting ebullience, and Makisupa is focking hilarious. Light seems destined for rote template rock but the fadeout results in a totally original bubbly ambient piece, marvelous stuff, and a nice angry swell into a hot Chalk Dust, not smooth but fiery stuff. Otherwise a goofy but mildly interesting (other than Wedge) rest of the set, capped by a short but inspired Slave and very generous silly Sally encore. Figures, tour's almost over and they're finally hitting their stride.
