Review by PisoMojado

PisoMojado My friend I drove up from Madison, listening to the latest Live Bait and recounting old tour stories (he had a lot - he did the 93 summer tour minus a show). The scene was mellow, the weather beautiful, the beer cold, the wooks hott...

As for the tour opener, it was thoroughly enjoyable.
Haters gonna hate re: lack of jams and, to be fair, the 2nd set had a strange flow to it, but the band's execution was mostly great, the song selection was insane, and CK5 made good use (yet didn't overuse) the new LED weapons in his arsenal.

The oblique Prince references near the end were a nice touch - Trey spoke about the last time they played in MN (1999) and the last time he used that particular guitar (again, 1999). Purple lights + Water In The Sky = Purple Rain, I guess?

As Mike recently said: "Expect the unexpected" - Looking forward to Wrigley!
