Shimmering, dazed Space highlighted by some of Brent’s wildest keyboard tones and textures.

Phil drops some serious bombs to complement Jerry’s ringing leads.

Grand Center

Jerry’s solo is a fountain of melodic exuberance, reminiscent of the BEW earlier in the set.

Worth switching to the AUD to hear the explosive ending after the SBD cuts out. Just awe-inspiring.

Freaky electro Drums. In Space, listen for Bobby’s wild playing shortly before Jerry segues into Miracle.

Also a neat little tug-of-war between -> Lost Sailor and -> Other One at the end. Other One wins out.

Greek Theatre - University of California

This is pretty great. Exuberant, determined, and focused all the way through. I'd say the Slipknot! benefits the most from the particular energy this night, but there are certainly beautiful passages in Franklin's as well. Easy upvote!

Good god!!! One of the best played and sung, ever, as others have said. Do not miss this. Also, check out the similarly strong Peggy-O from this show.

Lots of Keith on organ during the verses, which creates some novel textures.

Hot, swampy East Coast summer energy! Very powerful.
