early report by Bob Doisneau

Just in and decompressing from the big show. EXCELLENT!
Surprises were:

Four new Neil tunes including Coming Home and Let's Roll.

All in all the show was almost 3 1/2 hours of music alone! Not including breaks!

More to come...

late random thoughts by Bill Hoerner

Just got home from the show and a long show it was. The boys came on at 8:15, took a 20 minute break at 9:30, and then played until about 12:05. About 3 hours 25 minutes of music.

Setlist was similar to last time, with a few surprises.

I thought Neil looked awesome, black shoes, black jeans, black shirt, black t-shirt, and a hat. (I'm not enough of a hat expert to tell you what kind.) His hair was long -- past his shoulders. I think Neil looks cooler with long hair.

Behind the boys was a large wall... Almost looked like a giant (and I mean giant) bulletin board. It was covered with sheets of paper... I will guess that they were some of the victims from 9/11. During RITFW the wall was lit red, white, and blue.

All in all the show was good. I had to remind myself that Neil was part of the band. I kept wanting him to go off.

Another note: several people started leaving about 11:30. The boys just kept playing...

Well, just some late, very random thoughts.

review by Joel Sensenig

Well, they "made it through" the first night of the tour, as Crosby said toward the end of the show. Here are a few of my impressions:

If the 2000 show was an 11 out of 10, I'd say this one was a 7 (but maybe I just have my standards set too high). Here's hoping for more at the Cleveland show.
