Notes from 5H:
First night Monkeywrench broadcast the show through the radio.
The crowd is pumped, with people crowdsurfing even during Otis Rush's set.
Cool 'Tommy' riff after 'Lukin.' 'Black' lyrics are altered from "sun" to "moon" and Ed gestures to the full moon above the stadium.
He jokes, "There's some fancy people in the skybox ... they're blinking to us, sending us a message up there."
The crowd boos and he tells them not to get angry: "... you know life has a way of working itself out, you know?
Think about this for a sec, right? These are the rich, fancy people, right? They got all the luxury, right?
Looks to me, like they're the farthest ones away from the stage and they're behind a fuckin' window ... you hang in the trenches long enough,
it pays off ..." Ed destroys his black Telecaster featuring the "skateboarding is not a crime" bumpersticker, smashing it against his mic stand.
Producer Brendan O'Brien joins the band on keyboard for a surprising 'Everyday People' (a Sly and the Family Stone song) and then 'Let My Love Open the Door.'
First lightning and later, fireworks, filled the sky this night. Amazing setlist and long performance with the pressure on in an intimidating venue.
