Review by kyleindeed

kyleindeed Still baffled this morning at the skepticism this show is getting. Flubbs and slower song mix in S1? Sure. Blaze On opener was cool, might be getting overplay in S1 but there are worse things in this life. Highlights of this set were Party Time (w an absolutely filthy Fishman beat midway thru), an awesome Stash as the sun went down and a truly rocking 46 Days. I concur with a previous statement that 46 Days has been MVP of this tour. Every time played it delivers the goods and audiences have been all in for it.
S2 was tight and oh so smooth. Sand kicks us off in fine fashion and explores the space.
> Mercury. Masterful. Highlight of the show, even with an outstandingly impressive
> Ghost. I went bonkers for Mercury and Ghost. This is my 7th summer in a row (2012-2018) that I’ve gotten a Ghost. Planning to get this streak up to 10 in a row if I can help it. And a few of those years I could only see 1 show.
> Fuego. Short and intense. No hating on Diego... keep it rolling.
> Slave. Perfect finish to this 5 song S2. Mood was beautiful.

4 song encore including a BONKERS Martian Monster and my 1st MPP in the books. Raleigh may have been better from top to bottom, but this S2 is the most tight and intense that they’ve played all week. Don’t miss a Sunday Show!!!
