my review from the PT Forum:


I'll just lay it out, two of the best if not the best shows I've ever been too!


The first show had a bit more energy and was overall a bit better (as expected) but both shows were fantastic. I expected Pat & Gavin to be great but they were beyond that, I've never seen two drummers play so well and precise together. Just seeing their three solos were worth the price of admission. The rest of the band was amazing as well, Adrian especially for me brought a great energy to the show along with T-Lev. There were a lot of people whining about how Fripp hid behind is rack, but I have to say I almost liked that better. He played very few solos, and it was clear the stars of the show were the other guys and that's how it was supposed to be.


I'll do a little recap by each member:


Frippy - He was Fripp, no more no less. If you're a Fripp fanatic and have to see him play, sit up front and to the right side of the stage or you won't see him at all.


Adrian - This was my first time seeing Ade and he blew me away. Great playing, great vocals, great energy on stage.


Tony - This was also my first time seeing Tony, and he didn't disappoint. Watching his stick-work was pretty jaw dropping at times. And it was the first time I saw the funk-fingers in action and it was great seeing one of the all time greats live.


Pat & Gavin - I would say for the most part they were the stars of the shows. Incredible musicianship between the two. What I really liked was that Pat wasn't overshadowed by Gavin as I felt he was at times with Bruford. Each of them had their turns in playing something that blew your mind. But what was really amazing was they synchronization, how everything they played either together or off of each other fit perfectly. For Gavin, this was the best I've ever seen him play. If you think his playing is great with PT, it looks subdued and simple compared to what he pulled off for the Crimson shows. It was really the first time I saw him where he really showed what he could do, as opposed to the small little fills he does during some PT stuff. I hope they continue to tour after this because to me he almost sounds more at home with Crimson than PT.



As for the crowd, it was surprisingly diverse. Not as many bearded, smelly prog-nerds as one might expect. Quite a few younger people and yes.......even girls! Lots of them! Grin I saw a few PT shirts, quite a few Tool shirts, so I'd say that's where most of the young people came from.


Overall, the shows were amazing, and I wish I could go see them again tonight. Everyone who still gets to see them you are in for an absolute treat!
