It's a shame that the scale only goes to 10....
This was the first show I had seen live since Joe played the Arizona State Fair back in '88. Needless to say, the wait was worth it.
The setlist was crazy - Hordes of Locusts? Crystal Planet? War? - Hell, after that I could have gone home! Some of Joe's best music interlaced with new stuff from BSWW, it was absolutely amazing. One of the great things about seeing Joe live is that the stage performance is as good if not better than the studio, in my opinion. Sound was great, tuning was fantastic, everything was well done.
Loved the venue - my girlfriend and I were right in the middle and had a grand view of everything.
Needless to say, being the winner of the Aftershow passes and having the opportunity to meet Joe after the concert was simply incredible. Joe was really nice, spent about ten minutes talking to us and signing autographs. When I mentioned that it it had been 22 years since I saw him perform live last, he laughed and said "You need to come more often!".
i doubt that I could ever top this experience.
