    • From a FB page, a pretty good review of last year.

      OK, I know you all have been anxiously awaiting my take on the first half of the summer tour. I have been exercising my way through the Nugs official videos on my crappy elliptical machine in the basement. Down about 30 pounds and in the best shape of my life. These are a fantastic things to watch while exercising. Anyhoo, I have watched these 17 shows, I also attended 8 of them. This is my highly unofficial ranking after watching them all on HD TC with surround sound. Feel free to call me crazy because I didn't put the show(s) you saw higher. I can take it. And can explain why they are where they are on the list if ya want.
      There is no doubt in my mind about the show at the top of the list though. The intensity and emotion from the band and crowd that night was unlike anything I have ever experienced. Given the setting and what had happened 10 days earlier and what the band did that day it makes sense. The setlist was absolutely perfectly chosen for that moment. Every song was tied to the event that occured. Below the list is what I wrote the day after the show.
      If anyone is interested in obtaining copies of the vids on burned blu ray discs send me a PM with an email address.

      re, Sunrise:

      They weren't the songs i wanted to hear, not my favorites and I had seen all of the second set songs at the two most recent shows I had seen. But given the setting and the context they were the songs I needed to see. It was as emotionally powerful as any concert I have seen. The next night was more fun though.

      I just witnessed what I believe is, the single most intense 3 hour political statement of music I have ever seen.
      I am in Sunrise FL, not too far from Marjorie Stoneham Douglas HS. Wearing shirts in support of students, some of whom were sidestage. And they played a setlist that spoke directly to the atrocity that occurred there. Almost every song played was a message song. Never seen anything like it.
      Opening song had the line “Don’t Tell me this town ain’t got no heart” final song of the night ended with “We Will Survive” main set ended with an angry version of their overtly political Throwin Stones. In between, “One way or another, this darkness has got to give.” every song had a reason for being in the setlist.
      Great thing about this band is tomorrow night in Orlando will almost certainly be a raucous party celebration of high energy uplifting songs. And not one of them will have been played tonight.

      And DASM is John Mayer a talented guitar player.

          • Dead and Co, still have songs on the table. Mine os Foolish Heart. I love that song, but haven't heard it live since Vegas 95. (Or was it Shoreline?)
            Doing justice to one of rock’s most expansive repertoires was always a tall order, but Dead & Company has been steadily working through the Grateful Dead’s songbook throughout over one hundred shows and counting. Despite having performed around 130 distinct songs as of November 2018, so far, the spinoff supergroup (comprised of original Dead members …

              • Has anyone gone to see Bob & The wolf Brothers? I was considering going to see them at The Fillmore but I listened to a show from the other night and was not at all impressed. He almost sang in a monotone and they were kind of sleep inducing and boring.

                  You should go. I went to the LA show and was very pleased. Way cheaper than Dead and Slow too.

                      • This thread has been WAY too quiet since Benny passed. How about a tasty soundboard from 93 ? These shows in Chicago were some of the last I saw where Jerry was firing on all cylinders. The space with Ken Nordine is a treat.

                          Thanks! I have a copy of the 03/10/93 show and it's excellent. The Let It Grow to end the first set is burning.

                              Is it that much trouble for you to avoid clicking on the thread if you know you have no interest in the discussion?
