Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This show is a kind of testament to how good this show is. Mainly because you might call it a "lower tier night" for this tour. Now you hear that and say to yourself "this show must be terrible" quite on the contrary it is a great show! However not among the other heavy hitters from this tour.

Ghost starts off the show with a nice little mellow stretch with some great Trey hose. Wilson is a top notch version that is explosive and everything you would want in the song. Jim has a nice little stretch to it with some nice ambient work by Page. The rest of the set is fairly straight forward.

Stash in thunderous, it doesn't go the places that some of it's '97 brothers do but still pretty solid. Julius has a nice little stretch to it but the jam is basically directionless and straightforward. The star of the show IMO is slave. It is a transcendent masterpiece. It sucks you in with Fish's thunderous drums, Mike's rumbling bass, and Trey's noodly wankery. Just like the first set the rest of this set is fairly straightforward.

Good encore song, maybe a prelude to the famous Tweezabella the next night? Go Jimi!
