Very decent performance from by band. Mofo gets the band off to a great start. Just little mistakes and off bits put the bands rating of this performance down.


Way better than the rating it's given on the show pages. Very listenable sound.
Recording: Audience microphone - 2 stars


Decent Chicago crowd. They aren't usually fantastic, but usually just over average or a little better.


Very good show, with a decent sound too. 3.5 stars is the maximum I can give it unfortunately, although I would have liked to give it higher.

Highlights - Mofo, Last Night on Earth, HMTMKMKM, One
