spreaditround SET 1: Punch You in the Eye > Wilson, Guyute: Standard but tons of energy.

Ghost: Has very good energy through 16 minutes and then the rest is ambient. Which Fishman keeps it all interesting. ->

Free: Kind of a typical ’99 Free – which is to say better than most as I have always felt like 99 is where this song was at its best.

Sparkle > Possum: Good energy to round out the set.

First set summary: Definitely a rock-solid set. Has everything I would want, high energy and a really big jam. Big fan!

SET 2: Limb By Limb: Outstanding version, one of my favorites for sure. >

Also Sprach Zarathustra: Total 20 groove fest. There are pieces that could have been trimmed but for the most part this one hits the spot. I do prefer Memphis over this one though as far as this tour is concerned. >

Down with Disease: As has been the case this tour – this tune has been straight ahead Type I ragers, this one is no exception. >

Wading in the Velvet Sea, Simple, Loving Cup: Standard section here.

ENCORE: Slave to the Traffic Light – Supposedly played for a fan that perished in a car crash on the way to the show? Not sure if true, but this version is awesome. Trey’s heavy metal part that leads up to the end of the composed section sounds like 12.7.97. They are patient with this one and peak it extremely well.

Second set summary: LxL, 2001 and Slave all have significant replay value. All in all, this is a very strong set. It’s been likely a couple of years since I have listened to this show in its entirety, and I just don’t remember it being as good as what I just heard. But it is! I would rate this as a strong 4.2 out of 5!
