Show Notes: An awful pit and not the best crowd either, going wild with 'Corduroy' as the unusual opener, and breaking the barrier during 'Red Mosquito.' Ed asks the crowd to step back and references the (ineffective) "Mariah Carey barricade." 'Wishlist' includes modified lyrics: "I wish I was a 40-foot wave, breaking off the north shore."
Ed smashes down his microphone and stand at one point, seemingly annoyed that he was flubbing lyrics. After the band huddles around Jack, Ed comments that he "... just wanted tonight to be perfect ...", applauds the crowd and they launch into 'Do the Evolution.'
Mike is awesome, giving a fantastic solo during 'Even Flow' which also features Stone on Bongos & Congas!! Mike also brings out his new flying-V Gibson during 'Evolution' and 'Last Exit.' 'In Hiding' is wonderful live and the brief lead-in (new song, improv or whatever?) features a rocking tune. (Partial lyrics: "Came here with no bags, don't need nothing, don't need no clothes, I don't need sunblock on my nose.")
A superb encore, with 'Once' as an always pleasing surprise, followed by instrument switching (and Jeff's nice solo) during 'Smile.' A 10pm curfew resulted in what was widely regarded as a too soon end to the show.
