JackeeTreehorn Long time phan/ first time reviewer

I haven't seen a show in over 15 years. I thought I might be able to lend a different perspective in that respect.

I didn't know how much I missed their live shows!
In that long time away this band has matured into a professional, polished, precise and patient powerhouse.
They've been doing this for 35 years AND IT SHOWS!

Some of the tunes that I used to love back in the 90's like AC/DC Bag, NICU, Halley's Comet & YaMar didn't quite have the ferocity like in the days of old, but were perfectly executed.

For me, there were a lot of new tunes like Blaze On. Great jam, finally got out there a bit. Really fun.
Sloth, Fuck Your Face and My Friend were unexpected treats. No serious improv jamming, but they were SO FUN! Everybody was all smiles. Final Hurrah had some great jamming
Zero gets a lot of flack on social media, but it RAGES! I've seen this at about half of my shows and it never lets me down. The energy was insane.

Excellent jamming throughout the second set. ASIHTOS was nice, but from Runaway Jim on the fellas got serious.
I'll never understand how Trey nails the lyrics to Undermind & Golden Age and flubs BOTT so badly that Page had to take over! It was hilarious and reminded me of the good ole days. I think Trey just wanted to jam. And jam he did! Prolly not a best-of version, but DAMN!

"It took me a long time to get back on the train", but it felt so good to be back!
