Your greater point is accurate, but I would argue, to a degree, that both Philly shows were pretty phenomenal. Lakewood is as Lakewood was - and Trey summed that venue up for us. But if you take away the Tweezer (I know), you can at least look at Philly.

The Twist assessment is on point; it really can be a tough song in this spot (and I've forever been a fan of the tune). I really loved the Slave placement, but, as I've iterated before, (and I've loved DWD a LONG time) I don't advocate for it to jump Set II any longer. It's had a nice long run there, and could use a breather (as evinced the last couple outings).

Just my opinion; I've been at some shows where they've certainly done some interesting things with it....

This said, there was still a lot to appreciate here. Great to see another Stash before the upcoming events; it has been played well, but I'd love to see it break free. And despite some flubs, it's really, really great to see a renewed interest in Bowie.

An earlier review went with a nice series of baseball analogies. Following all that's gone down, if you consider Magna and Dick's as series, it'll be cool if the band 'wins' both. And to consider the possibility of sweeps is electrifying.

And while BDTNL is polarizing, it's a great encore to cap the run. Any time the band plays it, you know they're possessed of a reason / having fun.
