oceanbear I took notes watching from home. Here they are copy and pasted:

Set 1

Dogs was the opener continuing the theme from the first 2 nights’ Chilling, Thrilling openers. Lots of musical communication between the band members.

Early set Ghost followed and was possibly my highlight. It stayed type one but really pushed the envelope of what can be type one with page wanting on several occasions to break from the band and then Mike bringing it back down.  So far great!

Funky Bitch - this should keep the energy rolling and show us how well they are playing tonight (so far they are playing great).  Btw, Page is a great organ soloist. Come to think of it Mike is great too.. and this is really balanced. Good thinks to come.

Chalkdust was like this for my brain chronologically: 1st thought: not second set but would be great if they played it like it is the second set. 2: right out trey goes slow while page and mike dance around the chord progressions. nice and slow and patient. 3: back into chalkdust again quickly 4: rockin trey solo to end it  (not second set)

Army of one - get some Page!

Heavy things - time to grab a beer Hey Page sounds solid again! So does Mike.

How many people are you - Love this song!   Great job! Way fun!

Stash - Solid composed section. Quiet with a major jam in the middle.  It was pretty happy but back to it. They seem to be enjoying slower grooves this tour and so do I. They let it build longer and be patient. Solid reentry to stash. Great set placement.

Theme - Another favorite with great placement! Solid rocking version with a lot of Page and mike again. Fight bell from Mike (to me he hits it to signify he is fired up)!

Suzy - More Page for sure! Teased the electric piano and a cheer for the slot machine line. 2: Trey off key solo outdone by the chairman again… Page Fish duel ya!

Really a lot of great song placement all night! Just fabulous first set led by Page and close second was Mike.


DWD opener is obviously presenting a very possible opportunity.  Nice first jam going dark for a second before accelerating through a wicked chord progression that switches gears at a really high level!  Oh boy!  Gets really dark before taking a turn back to the major with Mike dropping heavy bass line and Page gliding almost silently on the Hammond.  Trey just noodles beautifully and Fish lays it down solid.. Change gears at 11 or 12 min. Yes!  Some high energy and heavy mike bombing with which goes out really far as we start to get nearer to the 14 min mark.  New synth groove from page around 18 min.  Trey starts the rhythm for dogs/ woo’s/

BOAF … Page on keys and rocking start. Next some aggressive chord changes. great spacey jam with standard ending.  

Fuego middle jam was a little drawn out with fun interplay…. Fuego  fire jam to finish

Miss You - great

hood - nice and slow build up to > have mercy > hood

>a day in the life - Fun last quarter

E: char zero rocked
