MCI Center
Washington, DC, April 6, 2000

early report by Tim Motion Pictures Dapp

Just got back from the show at the MCI Center and it was simply incredible. I was sorry to miss the pre-show gathering. But the show, as I'm sure anyone there would attest to, was amazing.

Having heard 4 Way Street and the '74 compilation, I would say the big difference now is that CSNY are a BAND. Sure, there was a false start to 49 Bye-Byes, and Neil stumbled a little during Out of Control... But the show was an explosion of energy, and the crowd was really into it. For all of the sets, including the acoustic, the sound at MCI was superb (this was even mentioned by Neil and Stills).

To me, Stills has strengthened as the tour has gone on. Crosby and Nash sounded perfect. And Neil was ferocious. (By the way, his voice sounded fine, also...)

Quick selections:

All the guys are in their mid to late 50's and they have just peaked as a "supergroup." If any other show was better than this, I wouldn't believe it. Perfection doesn't happen very often.
