Review by Miguelito

Miguelito Another solid outing in this fantastic tour, this one has much to offer with numerous highlights in both sets. In the first, the Helter Skelter to open is notable as they had debuted it earlier in the tour as part of the Halloween set and is also the last time it’s been played. I’d love to see this as a bust-out! The Maze is chaotic, frenzied and fantastic. The Divided Sky, another highlight, is splendid. We also get an always-welcome Forbin’s > Mockingbird, which has a Vibration of Life in there as well, that transitions nicely into the narration. The set-closing DWD is a raging version that caps off this fine set with lots of pep.

The second set is stacked with highlights, with the Bowie being particularly fine. This one rages and is worthy of several listens. It was a strong year for Bowie, and, while I prefer a few others from this year over this one, this one holds its own. The mid-set YEM is a classic version, and serves as a nice centerpiece to this great set. The Slave a few songs later is another highlight, and this is a beautiful, majestic version that should be heard by anyone who’s a fan of the tune. This has now become one of my favorite versions, and its recognition on the jam charts is well-deserved.

The encore contains some nice acoustic numbers, followed by a wonderful take on Fixin’ to Die. Rev. Jeff Mosier joins the band once again for these last couple of tunes.

Overall, this is very solid show with multiple highlights including versions of Bowie, YEM and Slave that are worthy of numerous listens.
