User_27592_ This was a fantastic show. Probably my second favorite New Years I've seen aside from Cypress. Not sure if anyone remembers, but this show was so cold outside MSG, the coldest I ever remember seeing shows in. Not that relevant but might be nostalgic if anyone remembers.

The thing that sticks out in this show is- it proves that less can sometimes be more. None of the sets were that long and they did not play that many songs in any set, but that kept it flowing so well. There was never a down minute this entire show.

The energy as they went from 1999 to Mikes was outrageous. Ghost>HaHaHa was filthy in the first set. I love a great first set jam.

Second Set was my favorite Velvet Sea ever. The energy was so high at the point that it was probably the first time I could remember NEEDING a cool down song. That song kind of kept me sane and it was the perfect use of an often maligned tune. And then the ratcheted it right back up with a nasty Antelope>Frankenstien. It was one of those sets that ended on such an energy high that the excitement going into the third set had as much anticipation of any show I can remember.

Jim was the perfect song to go into the New Year and Simple was the perfect jam to come out of it. The rest of the set was perfectly crafted. It was just an overall flawless show
