The Horse featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Between Llama and Satin Doll, Trey told a story about how his great-grandfather went to the University of Iowa and his grandmother used to attend dances in the same venue and dance to the big band music of Duke Ellington. Antelope contained a Satin Doll tease from Trey and a Simpsons signal. Trey teased Fire (Ohio Players) in Tweezer. YEM contained Gumbo lyrics and the YEM vocal jam included New York, New York lyrics, a bit of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, and Setting Sail lyrics from Fish. Terrapin included Mississippi Queen teases from Trey and Page and a brief In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida jam (with lyrics) during Fish's vacuum solo. Satin Doll was played for the first time since February 25, 1990 (421 shows) and Highway to Hell was played for the first time since November 15, 1991 (186 shows).

Satin Doll tease in Run Like an Antelope, Gumbo, New York, New York, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, and Setting Sail quotes in You Enjoy Myself, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida and Mississippi Queen jam with lyricss in Terrapin, Fire (Ohio Players) tease in Tweezer

Review by DollarBill

DollarBill This is the only show at the IMU Ballroom, 49th of the tour, and it's a great one...kind of. I'm really impressed so far with the Midwest swing of this tour, tighter overall playing and nice sounding recordings. Mike is a little off tonight, and they do have some oops moments along the way.

Some feedback troubles plague the first set and the band had a big oops at the end of an otherwise ok Golgi opener. Then...Wow, we have a Tube! I love this song personally, but this one has rust on it. Bouncing had more feedback and was ok. Same for Poor Heart and Trey sounds a little frustrated. Stash was nice and dynamic; Mike was a little off at times, but a good jam anyway. Horse was good except Trey blows the end. Silent is a lot better, much more controlled. Reba was a little weak at the top, but got progressively better. Llama was a little sloppy, but rocking. Then there's a great story about Trey's family before an even bigger bust-out with Satin Doll. And for you Page fans out there, he has a great swagger going on here vocally speaking. Antelope is a nice, rocking closer for a pretty weird set.

Another, though smaller, bust-out with an exceptional Dinner opener. This one is really solid and rocking. Tweezer jammed pretty well. Fee was average. Paul had another oops in a later verse. Ice was good, though Mike was a little weak. Then the balls come out and Trey comments on how bad the crowd is at shooting hoops. YEM is pretty tight and has a crazy jam with a full on double chorus of Gumbo? And then a Honky Tonk jam too? HYHU brings Fish out for Terrapin and a vac solo. Tweeprise wraps up the set nicely.

Grace was cut from the recording I heard and that's fine. Then another bust-out with the Highway encore? What prompted all this? Trey's family maybe? Then a ripping Rocky Top for another encore too!

Well in the context of 1993 in general, I’ve got to go with a solid four stars on this one and maybe even more just for the bust-outs alone. They far outweigh the other sloppy moments in this one. Ten more day before I got to see them!

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu Stash is pretty good, and the Reba is about a C+ IMHO. Rest of the show, other than the YEM, is pretty standard. The teases in YEM are cool, but for the most part, I think the whole show is average-great. It was nice to hear the story about Trey's great grandparents again...I used to have that and the Satin Doll as filler on a cassette years ago. I like that Trey's mom is an Iowan. :) Three stars for this show.
