Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw The first set from this show is the polar opposite of the following nights. NICU is a great starting point. But along the way you get a weaker than most version of BEK the brand new and understandably sloppy Farmhouse. Billy Breathes is likely the best thing from this set and is fantastic throughout this tour. The Banjo section is pretty forgettable especially the rough transition back to the end of ScentOAM.

The second set is decent and Timber gets a random jam out of it. However besides that and a very patient and well played Harry Hood, this set thrives on segues. And the segue into Simple (which the guys had down already for years) and Wilson (not so common and definitely not so easy) are fantastic. Izabella is a nice touch at the end.

Bowie is always a welcome encore and is pretty well played. But it's nothing special and nothing new, but it beats another Loving Cup encore!

Overall I'd say this show is one of the more "Average" of the tour which I guess you can consider a mild insult considering most of this tour is 4 star or more worthy.
