Saturday's encore was maybe the best I have witnessed. Morning Dew?? OUT OF HAND!! I was nearly bawling (like always) during the song. In the encore?? Crazy. But I agree wlewis, the playing reprise was just an unbelievable topper. The only encore that comes close to this one was when the encored Terrapin Suite over New Years in 2009.

I loved that they played US Blues Friday but was seriously bummed that my wife couldn't deal with the pain anymore and bailed to the RV before she could hear her favorite song. It always seems to work that way.

Thanks for the review. Couple things to add:
#1 In the Help>Slip>Golden Road they didn’t finish Slipknot (until late in the 2nd set) and I can now say Slip is just not the same without bringing it back from the spacey jam to the trademark ripping Slipknot riffs. I was left hanging there in space.... But it was awesome to hear those riffs come out of the post-Wheel jam.
#2: I was equally left hanging when instead of JK culminating Morning Dew with the climactic final verse they launched into Playin. Love the double encore but I would trade Playin for a complete Dew any day.

Loved the Phil flub in Unbroken and subsequent loving cheer for him. Its all love when he takes the mike. If you want to see how much he loved being there, check out the video of Franklins Tower in the final page of the “Set lists Red Rocks-9/21/12” thread in this forum. Just before the opening verse, the look on his face as he looks all around at the crowd and amphitheatre says it all.

Nice review Burt as always. Seemed like it was a magical 3 nights for sure! Let's see what they got in-store for tonight after a night off. On a technical note John has also brought back his Carvin which I'm glad to see back in action. Really dig that guitar and he has not played it since late 2010, I think after the west coast dates in late summer. Either way nice to see it back in action. Doesn't seem like he is giving the Vantage much love although he only uses it for a song or 2 I've seen.

I agree with rhody regarding the dew>playin reprise encore. I missed that epic closing " I guess it doesn't matter anyway." That being said, the segue was nice and the reprise was a powerful conclusion to the show. I had seen them do that splitting of help/slip/frank before as well. I too think it works better as a combo. Don't get me wrong, I thought the shows were off the hook. The O1 from night one was worth the trip alone, not to mention the most insane althea i've ever heard. And don't get me started on the dark star>st stephen>unbroken(botched lyrics and all)>dark star>fotm from night 2. Pure sickness.
Right now, I can't read too well...

Whats up with no mention of JK quoting "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" twice during The Other One?


I wasn't there. Someone else pointed this out to me, so I can't say I picked it up on my own, either. Check out "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" melody from :08-:26 of The Other One on this recording. JK does it again 3 minutes later. I haven't noticed him doing this before, and it is one of my all-time favorite songs.
