kipmat I'm glad to see the glowing reviews of this show that have already been posted. IMO, this show is the best of the three that saw release on the Hampton/WS '97 box set (heresy!), and gives 11/17 good competition for best show of the tour. Theme and Twist are overlooked gems in the first set, and the performance of BEK is a vast improvement over the Hampton and Vegas versions, although it would be topped on it's next performance in Worcester. As for the second set, I could use words like "hot", "impeccable", "triumphant", "perfection", but really, you get the point by now.

I love how, during the intro to Julius, Trey stops to listen to the crowd clapping on the off-beat, then begins playing the guitar line so the crowd is clapping on the down-beat! What a great band, what a show.
