Review by levitatingyogi

levitatingyogi Was a great run overall and this night was no exception.

Thanks to social media we saw that the costume was going to be Ziggy, as was heavily rumored, before we got inside and was presented with the Phishbill. Great choice, the backup vocal accompaniment added a nice touch as did the strings although the strings only played in about half the songs.

Highlights were Moonage, Starman, Ziggy, R&R suicide

First set was fantastic, they smoked right out of the gates. Petrichor meh, too many down/dropped moments for my liking though it does have a nice finish. I'd rather they retire it and fill the 15 minutes of the set another way going forward...

Third set was fun, 46-Sand always welcome, I like how they ended Twist with all four drumming (marimba included), 2001 was dank and funky, definitely a highlight, meatstick ehhhh always nice in my books to hear even if it has become a bit cheesy (CHEESECAKE!)...Slave was why I come to these shows...kickass...take no prisoners creshendo to set the place on fire one more time.

Fantastic run of shows...to think how hard and well they played the first three nights, Halloween exceeded expectations. We were tired by show 4 so I can only imagine the band must have also felt some fatigue by that point. Amazing that Trey's voice held so nicely.

One complaint about MGM- TOO MUCH SMOKE ! Terrible ventilation system in the Grand Garden Arena. I remember the same issue in 2014. Anyone who is a non-smoker just took a terrible beating and is likely going to be wheezing and smelling smoke for the next few days as the body slowly clears the particles lodged in our lungs from hours spent in that disgusting air.

I hope next time they play Vegas the shows get moved to the T-Mobile arena which I hope has better air.

Other than that, thanks Vegas for a real good time!
