July 8, 1998 Veterans Memorial Coliseum – Phoenix, AZ

Show Notes

Matt breaks a stick during ‘Hail Hail.’ Mike does an awesome ‘Even Flow’ solo. Ed introduces ‘Leatherman’ as “a b-side to that song [they just played ‘GTF’] so some of you might not know it. True story, swear to god …” ‘Wishlist’ last verse is, “I wish I was one of the radio stars, sometimes you get what you want. I wish I wish I wish I wish … I wish I was thankful for everything I’ve got.” After ‘STBC,’ Ed flips the mic stand over, and then he says that he noticed one thing about Phoenix: “It’s really fucking hot … there’s probably no vinyl around here any more; if there was, they would have all melted.” Ed uses the e-bow during ‘RVM’ (and not just during ‘Wishlist’). He dedicates ‘Black’ to [former AZ governor] Ed Meacham because “… he seems to know a lot about the word ‘white’.” Ed fakes a stage dive during ‘Alive.’ Matt’s tremendously powerful drumming at the end of ‘Immortality’ is full and quick-paced, yet very tight and smooth. (On the setlist but not played: Interstellar Overdrive, Mankind, Indifference, SoL&T)

show notes:

not a whole lot to say for this one….just ‘another PJ show’ on a long road trip. short, tight set, nothing really stands out; at the same time, it’s a great show….from the master.

THANKS again to Dan, and plenty of “Fuck You’s” for the likes of me.

it makes me smile on the inside, promise!
