I went with my Brother in Law Ron who is a Dead Head but definitely an aficionado of all music. I think he was particularly pleased with the large share of songs from 1973!!!!!!

In terms of a review - simply the best show I have ever seen. I have seen some great, great American shows - 7/18/99, 7/1/00, 10/4/02, 9/7/03, 9/2/12 and 10/26/12 to name a few of the ones I have seen. I had seen him earlier this year in Baltimore (which was great but the feeling I left was that I have seen this show several times - even though I love side 4 of the River).

What worked tonight - simply everything from the Opening, to Spirit (which was amazing) to Lost in the Flood to the Incident/Rosie combo. My favorite moment was the BITUSA segment of the show and the American Skin / Promised Land part. Just nailed Promised Land which is every bit as good as Badlands! Other special notable parts to the show was Trapped and Secret Garden.

For someone to have seen the performer 20 times -and to get songs that I have not seen like Secret Garden or Does the Bus Stop- it still amazes me. The other thing that amazed me is that the show was totally different than the show that I had seen 4 months earlier.
