For this Good Friday edition of the Deadpod I've picked out a show from the 1991.. this was the first of what would become a regular stop in Las Vegas for the boys in the 90s. April 27th, 1991 at the Sam Boyd Silver Bowl. This is a fun first set, and I think that comes through in the band's playing and on the recording.
The weather from all accounts was perfect, unlike later years, and Santana provided a strong opening act.
The boys opened with an uptempo Touch, and while Healy had his problems mixing in this first set, I think you'll enjoy the band's enthusiasm. I quite enjoy Maggie's Farm, a song I was happy they boys put into the rotation, and Loose Lucy was always fun. Don't give up on that closing Might As Well, it has quite a nice jam in it! Stay tuned for a very good set 2 next week...
