I ended up going at the last minute (even with my broken shoulder) and boy was I glad I went. Imho this was the best show of the tour (ive been watching every show this whole tour) and not just because I was there but this show just flowed. Franklins was a nice way to surprise us all to end 1st set. The China Rider was awesome, St Stephen>William Tell>Eleven do I need to say more ? And then the Werewolves close ! We didnt have any issues getting the car parked, walking the lot or getting into the show. Ive never had any issues in Hartford, but I guess others do. I love the Meadows. Def cant wait to download this show.

I was extremely impressed with the show last night. It was my first video purchase this tour. I caught citifield and Philly in person, which were great. Last night was on a different level musically. They have become so tight and were obviously enjoying themselves by the look on their faces. Bob was quite fired up. He added such a cool little lick during China Cat; he even looked at John seemingly impressed with himself. The eleven was also fantastic, with Bob belting out at the end, “What Now!” For all the Dead and Co haters, this show, if watched or listened to in its entirety, might change your minds. The Franklins alone could convert some folks. If you grew up seeing the GD in the 80’s and early nineties, I can’t imagine how you can listen to that Franklins and not smile. The big groove that only Mickey and Billy can provide was there. Oteil was in the pocket and laying it down so smoothly, John was coming up with incredible licks and feeding off of Jeff, who killed it on the organ during his solo, and Bob was adding his unique flourishes. This band is having a significant peak right now in 2021. Really incredible when you think about it.

Last night was the cap of the last three. They've been playin steady and going from great to over the top fine. Part of the reason things moved. The Audience last night was there the whole way cheering em on. Way to represent what we who couldn't be there, would of been doing. Great Audience! Loved when they helped Bobby with a lyric drop out. :D For the Bands part. JM has been cutting loose and comfortable as a pig in sh**. His vocal delivery keeps improving. They're operating more and more as a Band. Got to see it all last night. Get ready folks. Those waiting in line with tickets. You're about to be visited by a Hell of a Band, get ready for some fun with musicians action. :mrgreen:
