Re: Top 5 Shows from the Spring '11 Tour

I only went to one show this past tour. But from what I heard, I'd say the top five, in no particular order were,
Atlanta
Fairfax
Phils Bday show.
Fri. and sat RCMH
Of course, I don't think there was a bad one in the whole tour. Can't wait for summer. : )
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Fox theater- atlanta
Mizner park - Boca raton

Both of these had beautiful setlists and rocked out. Cd's that you put in and never skip through. Great from first song to last.
you should listen to some shows on the archive and decide what you like. Mizner was last show of tour and they went out with a bang. Did I mention Clarence Clemons on rooster and lovelight? I always like me a little saxophone wailing out.

Re: Top 5 Shows from the Spring '11 Tour

i went to 9.....wallingford, all the BestBuy and all the RCMH shows. for my 5 I would pick.....

all 3 RCMH - 3/25, 3/26 and 3/27 ...(3/27 being my favorite of all 9)
3/12
3/15 - Phils B-Day show

The reason I picked all 3 RCMH shows is partly because Bobbys voice was real low in the mix before that, and they fixed it by the RCMH shows (thank god!). Like everybody else says - there wasn't a bad show in the tour (not a bad show period IMHO) but every show on this spring tour was special.

I hope they really did fix Bobbys mic for good and that it wasn't just the RCMH shows, how was it after these shows?
I'm doing the first 5 shows after All Good for summer so hopefully its not an issue again, but that was serious.....i was talking to a bunch of people at the shows saying "are the sound guys def" and what not........its actually worse on CD then it was at the shows for the ones that it was a problem for.


If I was going to buy a show I didn't see it would be the one with the Masterpiece/Revolution encore....that sounded like a sweet show!

"Masterpiece Revolution" was Charleston. Also a great show. I listen to it often on my long ass drive to work. A killer jack straw. Also playin, dire wolf, Alabama getaway, Cumberland.

One of the underrated ones that doesn't seem to get a lot of talk beyond the most mentioned (RCMH, Atlanta, Fairfax, Phil's BDay) is Orlando. My God, some absolutely BEAUTIFUL improv and fantastic flow throughout. It's also features a rather original and different setlist. One of those times when they took a risk, tried something new, and it worked out great. Really nice show to listen to.

Another one I really enjoyed was the tour opener, 3/04/11 in Boston. Nice first set followed by a monster of a second set. Pretty sure there were several times I was listening to the show and had to remind myself I wasn't listening to a very good SBD from 77.

haven't listened to them all but if you like dripping Magic Orlando is where it was......Boca was a fun icing on the cake, huggy bear kind of a show but check out the Disney Trip.
