Red Rocks Amphitheatre

This one takes a bit before the boys get their footing, but once they do, LOOK OUT. Choice peak in this throbber

SCREAMING start to the show. Boys attack like rabid dogs. Great Brent solo in here. Welcome to Red Rocks!

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

This one opens up nicely, and continually unfolds, into a seamless segue into PITB reprise

Boutwell Auditorium

They are playing in Birmingham, the song mentions Birmingham, mass crowd hysteria ensues. Hot version though, so justifiable

Fox Theatre

Really melodic jam, which builds incrementally in velocity and intensity - then, screaming sunshine daydream

Absolute scorcher. Nimble licks abound

Like others, not a massive TJ fan, but was in Nashville and a spin felt obligatory. This one is a crusher - band is tight and Jer puts the hammer DOWN on the leads. Very enjoyable version and yeah, they def brought it in Nash during an already iconic month in dead history

Powerhouse energetic and Bobby legitimately snarling and growling in full force. Killllllller
Playin' In The Band

Boston Garden

Thick cosmic soup. At times demonic in nature, then a flawless transition into Terrapin

The embarrassingly entendred name “clam jam,” is very well done. I’ve always loved this show
