jimsleftear First tour opener for me. Had a blast. The energy in the building was great.
If you read nothing else know this: if tonight is an indicator of the band's readiness to play and play solidly and with some energy, it's going to be a great tour. They came out ready to play!

Moma and Tube set the funk and pace right from the beginning...band seemed to be having fun.
The Everything's Right -> Cities was fantastic and seamless which is always a treat. Crowd was roaring along.
Walls of the Cave was fiery and tight.
The second set energy from the crowd was still high. The jams were "fine" but nothing mind blowing or crazy. All in all Page sounded great through all of these jams and helped make them special.
Show of Life, my first one live, sounded great and was well placed. The jam was excellent.
Highlight of the night was Also Sprach which got people really grooving! Obviously Zero is always a raucous singalong and it finished the set well.
Harry Hood as an encore was both unexpected and a real treat. Great way to close out the tour opener.

PS: CK5's light rig was moving around like a snake, up/down/wavy, all over the place. It was awesome and also a tad bit distracting from up in the 200 section because it would block view of the band at points. Not bad, just in the way.

Peace. Have fun out there.
