After reading about set III, I think I have to hold off and watch it before I just listen to it.
"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"

Mister Charlie told you so.

There was a recorded piano accompaniment to the a capella ďSend In The ClonesĒ.

Similar to the JEMP set I thought that having fewer effects and toys, esp Page and Mike made for a more interesting set, YEM felt like a bit of a throwback.

Not sure I will ever replay it but I enjoyed set III in the moment.

I still donít exactly know what went down but it sounded fun per usual.

So... Trey actually got stuck? Or was that part of the gag too?

Also, how did they not play clone?

He was so stuck he should have busted out a Spinal Tap cover up there.

Nah, they all floated around on their platforms.  His was just stuck and they had to come get him off it after the show.  They didn't have any safety gear and it was dicey for a while.

At one point Mike was like 20 feet higher than everyone else, not on purpose it appeared.  Shit was malfunctioning, yo.

no the other guys were still moving up and down. All treys gear was on his platform so there was no way for them to get him down without holding up the show. It was certainly unique. All I knew is I wasnít leaving until they figured out how to get Trey down.
  Fantastic run overall. I canít remember a damn thing but I know I had an absolute blast.
Paug FTMFW!

Wow, after digesting a few videos... that must have been so WEIRD to watch live! So odd watching him play YEM on his knees and hitting his pedals with his hands.
