Very strong first set, bit of an odd second set. The Ghost reached a great level of excitement, before teetering off and fading into Farmhouse. Solid set throughout, and a great YEM to close off the set.

Second set never really seemed to take off for me. Meatstick was soundcheck material, the Melt got going nice, but quickly Trey jams Kung in there which didn't fit whatsoever. The Bouncing was solid. And the Chalkdust had a strong jam, before Trey slams the last verse back in awkwardly, and almost plays it solo. It was way different, and actually pretty cool, but I wouldn't want to see it that way everytime.

Excellent encore, with the mellowness followed by the full rock show.

Overall, just a bit of an awkward show is the best way I can describe it. Ghost is possibly the only keeper from this show, unfortunately the jam isn't really lengthy enough to make it an all-timer.

Weird vibe at this show.

Dark and dirty.

Almost got popped in the parking lot before the show, so many UC's everywhere.

The Melt-Kung was darkness through and through.

Next night was better :thumbup:

^ disagree my good man. The next nights first set is 100% blah in the book of B. The second has the smash hits but they didn't realty do much for me besides the 2001. The 15th is where the experimentation and real Phishyness comes through. A nice sounding copy would help. Most auds from PNC no matter what the year sound muffled.

I'm gonna agree with B on this one. I love this show. I agree that there are a few awkward parts in the second set, but having gone through and listened to the entire tour, every night had its awkward moments. Part of what makes this a highly underrated tour. Brilliant highlights but some then-unusual lowlights every night too.
