Opening with a good version of ‘Animal,’ a typical ‘Even Flow’ with a short, ripping solo by Mike follows. Ed is having problems with his voice and is using accentuated talking in place of singing at times. ‘Why Go’ begins with an unusually long introduction. ‘Glorified G’ is warmly received by the crowd. Afterward, Ed finally speaks to the audience, announcing ‘Daughter,’ which is performed with a particularly delicate, gentle tone and no tags. ‘Black’ is now performed with an absence of emotion that was present only six months prior, and segues neatly into a canned version of ‘Alive.’ Before ‘Porch,’ Ed says, “I promise not to come back until I have a voice,” yet ‘Porch’ is delivered adequately, and tags are borrowed: the lyrics “Nothing is going to change my world” (The Beatles’ ‘Across the Universe’) and “Why do I keep fuckin’ up” (Neil Young’s ‘Fuckin’ Up’) are chanted.
