Of the 15ish times I've seen them, this was the only time I was ever underwhelmed by a Jacket show.  It felt like they never quite found their groove and every time their set had some momentum, they'd shift away from it.  I really wanted to post about it at the time but historically, any criticism of the band has not been well received here.

My first Jacket show 8 years ago today!!!
What an epic show. Such a magic night. They played for quite some time. 2 hours and 40 minutes on the dot, extra long versions of Gideon, OBH, Victory dance (the intro went on for nearly 3 minutes as they tried to fix something).
There were crew people wanting the band to cut it early but they refused you can see some of these people during video of Wordless chorus, the encore opener I believe.
Lay Low, Evil Urges into Off The Record to open, Way That he Sings, War Begun and Evelyn, Run Thru, Mahgeeta, the first ever celestial jam in Phone Went West (the theme they still use and have since 8/2/2012)...There were tidal waves of glowsticks flying down upon us during Touch Me II it felt like this magical universe....I cant get enough of this band. I'll send you pics CC

The only thing better than CC posting the concert history is reading about everyone's first hand experiences. Very cool insights on the show and it's impact Lonndown!  The Phone jam ending (I like that description, celestial) is the true magic of this band live.  I don't even like listening to the studio PWW much, but every concert version I've seen or heard gives me a spiritual joy.

Radio City, my first Jacket show.  I'll never forget Jim walking up the side railing things to the first balcony.  What a special show, special era for the band.

I hear ya Lonn. The Aug4th RR show in 2011 was my first Jacket show at that amazing venue. Got to share it with a whole bunch of great forum friends, and had an absolute blast at the preshow/show. So many great memories of that Aug.4th, it made MMJ at RR a must do as often as I can.

I was also at the Hard Rock show in Orlando in 15 and didn't realize it was the same day until this thread. Here's hoping we can be at a Jacket show Aug.4th 2021!  :beer:
