Excellent show! Bob started pretty late last
night (11:20) and kept the crowd going until
close to 1AM. His 12-string sounded GREAT for 
the first few songs (I won't go into detail 
about each one), but then he started having
tuning problems which lasted through the
rest of the show. He was apologetic about
it all night.

Highlights (personal opinion):
WOW - Hoover Dam sounds better
acoustic than with a band! After he
finished this song, Bob sort of smiled
to himself and nodded as if to say,
"That sounded pretty good!"

New #1 and Vaporub are bothe fantastic songs,
rivalling the best from BM:BM.

Other favorites: The Last Night, Celebrated Summer,
the whole encore.

Bob took a cigarette break after IICCYM and asked 
for questions. His comment about the "Daily Show"
theme was "I gave them a C-side -- How many times
can you write Granny Cool." Most of the other
questions were "how is (fill in the name)?"
which Bob politely answered. Someone asked him
how it felt to be an icon, to which he responded
"I'm not an icon - I've got more dreams left than
memories", prompting a roar from the audience as
he began the second set.
