I wasn't there but to my ears this is the best version I've heard. Just keeps going! Thoughts?

I was there and that was amazing, by far the best I've ever heard. I thought that opening 3 songs that night were a great start to these shows. Jim's voice on "At Dawn" gives me chills still thinking about it.

Just listened to it on relisten and man he sounds like 2002 jj, it's always amazing to me how people's voices change over time--get deeper, etc.

but yeah great listen there...

It was a fantastic, kick ass performance and I loved how they stretched it out a bit.  :cool: No question it was one of if not the best version of it I've seen in person. Combined with the lights going off big time, it was an early WOW/ buckle up moment of the night for me.  :thumbsup:

Fantastic for sure!!!! it was one of my quickest picks for a song i wanted to hear them play that i hadnt so far, and when Pats bass drum started beating i knew it was coming.

It WAS the 100th time Xmas Curtain was EVER played.....

and it was the greatest, no question. The extended solo took it on a journey and combined all of the other versions from the past and mixed them all in one

The notes they're choosing are outrageous ahahah.

My top 5 Xmas Curtains:

1. 12/29/17
2. 8/4/2012
3. Okonokos / Fillmore November 2005
4. Capitol Theatre 2012
5. 8/17/2012 Mann center
8/2/2012 + 10/07/2015 + 12/29/2017 + 12/30/2017 +    12/31/2017

Haha, nah man I wish. I got on the show journey a bit later than I would've liked. (2010) I had planned on going to Radio City and the MSG NYE show but some family things caused me to have to bail on those shows.

Thankfully I did manage to get on board early enough to catch some great shows and try to make up for being late to the live show party.   :thumbsup:

I don't really look back and think about or regret the ones I missed though. I just look forward to the next one I'm gonna make and be grateful for the ones I have gotten to.   :beer:

I've only seen it once--7/7/17 at Ascend--and I went nuts.  We decided to go last minute, backed into third row seats and the night was unbelievable.

Anyone know who it's played so infrequently?

I really thought they would have played it at the Iroquois shows.

I don't think they played it at Ascend this summer-Do you mean 8/6/15? It was incredible that night and incredible the other two times I've seen it. It doesn't seem terribly infrequent to me (I've lucked into hearing it thrice in 6 shows, 3 of which were NYE run), but also I guess if it was left out of Iroquois 16 and RR16 (wow) it must be a rarity.

Yep. It was 2015. I may have frightened folks around us.

I think I did the same when they walked on stage with no intro track right into the OBH opener lol

I remember saying to our group when Xmas Curtain ended that most bands would have closed out  their entire set with a performance like that and it was only their third song in. Those first three songs of night one set everything up so well for the rest of the weekend. Glad that you're able to have it resonate so strong without being there.
