But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

ďFuck it, this is like an old show, letís do an old thing.Ē

Iím not even waiting for tonight: this is pound do pound the best run of 3.0. Seven straight sets of fucking fire. Not even BD had that. And Trey has been the MVP. Motherfucking Jedi is back.

Trey has been back at the reigns for sure this run! He seems to be actually playing guitar with purpose again.  The peaks of the jams arenít just Trey playing a 2 note trill like 90% of 3.0 peaks... almost every time heís started doing it, heís used it as a launchpad for another lick rather than stick with that crutch

Just a great show all around once again. First set even crushed. If I Could > Weigh was such a killer back to back combo! Old skool baby!

This show was stunning. The playing is so confident and exploratory. Three shows of fire.

Trey's confidence is really what has stood out to me this run. He just looks and sounds so in control up there and he keeps pushing the band to new places and fresh ideas. CDT is the one that really stands out cause Fish thought they were done and ready to wrap it up but Trey said no, but it's happened a bunch in every show. And the interplay among all of them has been just incredible too. They are having a real conversation up there and it's just been such a joy to watch.

Cannot wait to see how they bring it home tonight.

That's a monster Mercury! I was really digging that just now while preparing dinner.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.
