Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover Obviously overshadowed by the previous night, the tour finale is one of those shows notable for how quietly it's played in parts, probably thanks to a quiet attentive crowd. As a result, the first set closer is a-cappella without mics and the meat of the second set has three slower songs. This makes for a bit of weird flow, though there's some highlights over the course of both sets.

Gypsy Queen is effortless jammed into during Runaway Jim and adds a little something extra to this version.

Strange Antelope intro, it's quiet and sort of deconstructed, similar to the Catapult that arrives a little later in this unfinished version. This version of Life on Mars is particularly well-executed.

The heavy metal guitar addition to the Slave makes for a nice contrast to an extra-quiet buildup-- it would be nice to see Trey revisit this in 3.0 Phish. A great Slave feels like it should end the set, but Tweeprise adds an exclamation point.
