phishead71 Everybody on tour was trying to get tix for this particular show, due to the tiny seating capacity. We had to drive a long haul to get here, and even longer after to Red Rocks! I love tour! This may look like a standard show, but it was anything but. We managed to sneak our entire crew onto the second row, and let's just say that the security was tight, and the intermission was STRESSFUL; high on acid and hiding under the seats, hoping for the second set to begin! It always feels like a billion years! So many awesome renditions of songs here: Gumbo was dope! Mound, Possum, The Mango Song was a surprise for sure, and Wilson was a definite highlight, getting the crowd, which was already LIVING for the band, even more hyped. Just when you thought it couldn't get any more hyped, they go into Antelope to close what was a dope ass set. The Makisupa opener for set 2 was a surprise too, and it was funky and stoney. The SOAM, one of my all time favorites, was a treat for me, and the rest of this lucky crowd. The It's Ice showcased Page's amazing talents, followed by the first Contact I had remembered in a long time. The Frankenstein was so memorable! It was so high energy, and so unexpectedly well place in the set... it was Fn rocking! Then a cathartic Harry Hood, also totally a shocker especially after the rocking Frankenstein, had the crowd in a hypnotic state all the way through the opening jam they did. You really had to be there to feel the emotion in the room when Trey unplugged and it turned almost spiritual. An acapella Adeline was a chill set closer, but totally appropriate for the size and intimacy of the venue, which every person felt, as well as the band. This show was a special show that me and my friends talk about to this day. That is how memorable it was. The Fire encore was another rocker that was appropriate considering the back and forth between totally rocking, and then chill. This was one of the most memorable experiences of my tour life. I'm so glad we were able to score tix for this really hard to get into show. So grateful!
