April 4, 1996, Metro, Chicago, IL,
Pretty average show for this time. Not many highlights. Thom seems to be in a ‘mood.’ The concert video is taken from a JBTV broadcast, so its filmed professionally. The drums are a bit high in the mix and the guitars could be louder. At times, it’s a frustrating listen. From the start, the crowd is digging the show. Lots of crowd surfing, however Thom isn’t amused. During the end of Bones, he’s staring at the crowd and looks pretty annoyed. After the song, he makes a comment saying, “all crowd surfers are wankers.” Thom gets energized with a good version of Anyone Can Play Guitar. After the song, he complains once again about the crowd surfers. An uninspired Creep is played with Thom bailing out towards the end and letting the crowd sing the rest. A beautiful Bullet Proof is played at the beginning of the encore. After the last song Blow Out, Thom is quick to get off stage.
