Review by theghost

theghost You can call me crazy, but I'm not trolling when I say that I was there and didn't like this show very much. Sure, the setlist is amazing, but I thought the playing was dull at best and downright sloppy at times. I've listened to the CDs since the show, and my opinion hasn't changed.

I was fairly close at this show, and it looked like something was wrong. At one point in the first set, Trey and Mike were talking with hands on each other's shoulders with a look that said "come on, we can make it through this". At the setbreak, a girl sitting near me came back to our seats and said she saw Mike looking "white as a ghost" by the backstage gate. I believe one of their friends had died up at the IT site and I've always wondered if the news was fresh to them at showtime.

I know most disagree with me, but this show had me wondering where the band I loved had gone.
