bouncin7 This was certainly one of the best first sets of the summer tour SO FAR because the ACDC>Divided Sky was super strong with some unique moments and viscious cuts from Trey. And to then play the first Dog Log since 2003 was a super special treat......in which Page had a standout jazzy solo. And as I raved about last year, I'm a huge fan of Undermind, so to hear it mid first set was a treat. The Weekapaug Grove was super massive energetic. Mike and Trey had big phat smiles first sixty seconds of Ya Mar!!!!

Set II: Trey was going sound effects crazy during Tweezer which provided some unique moments - and there was a SPACY jam before and after Tweezer. The segues throughout second set were spacy trippy. Each band member now has a glowing egg shaped light show behind them as if each of them beamed down from the mothership. Once again like a few day prior, Birds of A Feather was RAGING!!! OMG ripping from Trey........BUT BUT BUT the highlight of last night was during the middle of Harry Hood in which Trey & Page once again brought back the Space trippy (space ship is taking off thick) deep thick weirdness in which the year's first What's The Use melted out of Harry Hood. It was sick sick sick transition that flipped me in my bed. Was the highlight of the night. Think of the What's The Use from Alpine LIVE BAIT 2010 or 2009. It was like that. Smiles! The ENCORE was also super kind and had me laughing all over. Trey took the microphone and started walking around stage saying he's going to sing to Jon because Jon is so special and is great at Tucking. He couldn't get his mic chord to move so he took Mike's microphone and serenaded Jon who held his head high and closed his eyes, "The day that you arrived, my sleeping monkey is revived." Jon then came center stage, Trey took the drumz, and Jon began Tucking and singing the classic final verse in falseto.. LOL. Then BAM a viscous Tweezer reprise featuring Trey holding his guitar and swining it like a Jedi sword. At some point either before first set or right before the encore, Trey also played the Star Wars theme really softly. Absolute BLAST! Bring on the cornfield!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
