Review by CameToPlay

CameToPlay This was pure arena rock. The ultimate example of how you do a "show for the bros". I don't want rock star Trey every night, but If you're going to take that approach there is no better way to do it than last night. Trey went for the jugular in at least 9 songs. This was not a show for the ambient crowd, but they still fit in some interesting jamming, especially in DWD. Not as elegant as the end of Reading, but Trey wasn't going to be denied tonight, even in a jam that didn't really lend itself to a rock finish. While the second set didn't have the flow and set construction of some of the other top 2014 shows, it still had 3 above average versions of beloved songs with a smoking zero and #line to boot. The 1st set was of course one of the best of the year. You might not appreciate what they did. But it is hard not to be somewhat awestruck by how they did it. A nice big fuck you from Trey to the accusations of a sluggish, disinterested start to fall tour. Not elite, but a top 10 show in a very strong year. Not too shabby.
