What a great show – this is one of the best I have seen in over 16yrs! From the powerful Jessica opeing to the Lovely Layla encore the ABB had total control and never waivered. The sound was great – perhaps a bit too loud because my brain feels swollen this morning.
The Egypt instrumental was amazing – It starts with little low end but Oteil builds a huge foundation second half of the tune and it just became volcanic! My friend had the quote of the night during Egypt – “This Is Craziness!”. and it was. Nice to hear Into the Mystic – Warren sounds so poweful behind the Mike and DT lifts it into strateshpere. Long Drums – MQ with no sticks, then sticks, 3-way round robin inti nice OB solo. Warren did a great version of Dreams noodling around the edges, with a classic Whipping Post closer – nice version with both DT & WH finding different ways to surprise us. Sounded like Humpback Whales at one point. finishing very strong. Layla – PERFECT. Great show boys – can’t wait til next time. It was a long ride back to Barneveld.
