The Good Perhaps the best live sound mix I've ever experienced - certainly the best open-air mix. Not at all a drum-heavy mix (as is today's standard), every instrument was balanced and clear. Hell, the most prominent musician was Tony Levin, which pleased me to no end. A great setlist that balanced his latest album "Up" with some greatest hits and lesser known songs. You expect a great stageshow from PG, but it was more theatrical (in a good way) than I'd expected for a shed tour. The musicianship? Tighter than a insert your own tasteless joke *here*.  Did I mention Tony Levin? The Man was spot on, and showcased his formidable talents on five-string bass, electric upright and keyboard bass. We even got some tasty Chapman Stick on "Shock the Monkey". The fact that professionally mixed soundboard 2-disc sets will be available about three weeks after the show. The Bad It's been five years since I've been to an outdoor show, but I was amazed at the large amount of people who were chatting, talking on cell phones... simply not into the show. It's not even as if they were bored with the set and decided to occupy themselves - it was almost as if they wanted to buy overpriced watered-down beer with Peter Gabriel as background music. Perhaps I've been attending too many progs shows with people who are there to count the number of notes played, but I'm used to people being interested. No more lawn seats, prices be damned. The vast amount of advertising and squeezing the customer for every last penny. I can semi-understand limiting food and beverages, but you can't even bring your own lawn chair - however, they're happy to rent you one. The guy sitting right next to us who lit up a cigar. Cigarettes I can stand, but cigars are simply stanky. J.P. Morgan, you're not a captain of industry so how about you stash it? The Ugly Large people wearing far-too-tight clothing. I'm all about people being comfortable with their self-image, but spandex pants and tube tops aren't attractive with rolls of fat squeezed inbetween. [:O] The verdict? Absolutely worth it to see someone I'd consider a living legend. It's very good when you can say the Dream Theater/Queensryche double bill isn't even the best show I'll be at this week.
