Review by MrPalmer44

MrPalmer44 Not a bad show, not a great show. Most of the new material translates well to the live setting. The first set actually is the stronger of the two sets highlighted by a good Martian Monster, a nice Waking up Dead, and some rarities like Let Me Lie and Lengthwise.

The second set starts out with potential. Mercury was a bit sloppy, but the jam is decent. The first I Always Wanted it This Way showed the potential for the song. It really gives a different platform for the band to improv. Unfortunately, the show takes a nose dive after this. Miss You will be killing second sets for a while. The Fuego>Sand is good, but Joy comes in to kill any energy that segment may have produced. Possum closer that goes nowhere, and a GTBT encore that will be easily forgotten.

The first night was much better. Petrichor/Ghost is one of the strongest openings of the year. Disease>Cities was worth the price of admission.

Overall, interesting to hear all of the debuts...each night had its moments. Night 1 being the better of the two.
