Date City Timing Notes
1993-03-30 Eugene, OR 06:24 Excellent second-set-opening version.
1994-04-17 Fairfax, VA 6:25 Great Trey solo in this show-opening version.
1996-11-19 Kansas City, MO 7:12 Trey rips it up and closes the FIRST set in a fiery fashion!
1997-07-29 Phoenix, AZ 7:33 Another rager to close the first set.
1997-11-13 Las Vegas, NV 7:00 Quite a strong Trey solo, have a listen!
1997-12-05 Cleveland, OH 8:03 Would be interesting to know how many calories Trey burned while shredding the hell out of this one.
1997-12-31 New York, NY 8:57 This is how to close a third set on NYE! Crazy-raw, rough playing by all!
1998-04-03 Uniondale, NY 6:54 > in from "Piper." Sort of the icing in the cake which brings the incredible "Roses Are Free" > "Piper" jam to an upbeat and celebratory close, before launching into the comic "naked guy" madness which happens in the ensuing "Antelope."
1998-07-06 Prague, Czech Republic 8:14 Trey blazes a trail on his 'doc, RAGING LIKE MAD in this excellent version!
1998-07-24 The Woodlands, TX 8:12 Another barnburning, first-set-closing version.
1998-08-12 Vernon, NY 8:59 The band rocked so hard in this mid-second-set version that they needed to cool down and segued promptly after it into "Sleeping Monkey." No joke.
1998-08-15 Limestone, ME 7:56 They just kill it to close the third set!
1999-07-25 Noblesville, IN 8:40 They can encore with this amazing version any time they want! Fantastic climax in the jam, and a short bonus outro-jam!
2000-09-14 Darien Center, NY 9:36 Incredible show of force! Bonus outro-jam taboot!
2003-02-26 Worcester, MA 11:09 Magnificent, must-hear, blisteringly-intense, shredfest with a drawn-out ending!
2004-06-24 Noblesville, IN 7:30 A rager to open the show!
2009-10-31 Indio, CA 7:23 This version is FIERCE, what with horns and soulful backup vocals!
2019-06-12 St. Louis, MO 11:34 The longest "Loving Cup" to date is a clever - if not forced - nod to a Stanley Cup win for the St. Louis Blues minutes before this jam. A quiet bounce led by Page's piano and fast rotary tone from Trey explores quiet space at first. A rhythmic plinko jam follows, with Page on Wurlitzer and Fish's wood blocks providing occasional accent. At 7:15, Trey hints at a shift from minor to major key tonality, although the band winds back down into the patient rhythmic shuffle. Finally, at 8:45 Trey plays a few trills and Page switches to synthesizer, as a deserved - though again, if not forced - peak matches the elation of the city's first NHL championship. Whale call and twinkly Rhodes dominate the forefront of the peak, which winds down to > "Twist."
