Very excited for these shows. Wolf Trap is a great outdoor venue, much better than Merriweather Post Pavilion, which Bob has played a few times. Anyone else planning on catching these shows?

Hey thanks for the offer, bobschool! However, I think I've already found a seller on craigslist with a good prime orchestra ticket. I'll see you at the show tonight! I'm wearing a red, blue and black floral pattern short sleeved shirt with light blue shorts. Oh and I wear glasses.

Intermission. Moved up to row B after Mavis came on. She was great as always. Bob and the boys on fire tonight. Same studio arrangement for THC, but instead of "assassin's eyes" he said "dirt in my eyes." Duquesne Whistle rocked as hard as ever. That Old Feeling was a beautiful thing to behold. And to top it off, one of the best Tangled's I've seen in a while. Bob sang higher on certain notes that previously he's sang low on, which was a pretty touch. Also, Charlie added some darker licks on Pay In Blood, which gave the song a new ring, but personally I prefer the earlier sound from previous shows this tour.

Great tidbits and observations! And very succinct, bravo.
I raise a Snaggletooth to you! Actually, it's a Fresh Squeeze, which fits The Set well too.

Thanks! I noticed at the Indy show he sang "blood in my eyes". Must be trying some new things with that line. Enjoy the second half!
