    All 3 of the shows I saw on the Yield Tour were amazing:
    6-20-98 - Missoula
    7-19-98 - Vancouver
    7-22-98 - Seattle

    I don't think there were alot of misses in '98 :)

    That was a really great show. Amazing setlist.  Maybe the most TEN tunes played on the 98 tour

    Love the list. Fantastic work.
    But two shows I'd argue for:

    2012 - Missoula.  Playing in front of all of Jeff's friends in a 6,000 seat arena. 

    2013 - I was at Seattle show and while it was good, I was one of those that left disappointed because I had been at the show in Spokane a week earlier. The building was nuts being the first show in Spokane in 20 years. The setlist was written by band-friend Steve Gleason. Was a remarkable night. 
    This!  My favorite show...seemed the whole town was over run with PJ fans (even though the arena only held about 6,000). 

    Great list SVRD, thanks for putting it out there!

    If Toronto 2011 is on the list because of a Neil Young solo than Toledo 2004 should be on it.

    toronto 2011 is way overhyped.

    Toronto 1 is in my top five easily. Pj and the crowd were on fire all night. Toronto 1 blew pj20 out of the water.

    I put Toronto 1 at the top of my list of shows attended!! Crowd was insane and PJ was definitely on fire! Neil young jamming at the end was just the cherry on top!! Better than Milwaukee 2014!!

    There's so much more to Toronto (2011-09-11) than the NY ending:

    - the opening of Long Rd into Evolution was killer.
    - The "Man Trilogy"
    - All the extended tags ...Modern Girl, Save it For Later, We Belong Together, one of the greatest ever IT'S OKAY performances...
    - No screw ups...all the war horses played to perfection (RVM, Porch, Alive, ...)
    -heck, for those of you who are sick of it, no Even Flow (sadly, no Corduroy either)

    This show is the reason I'm a ten club member. Better late than never, I guess.

    All of this plus CHLOE/CROWN.

    When i listen to this show as well, there are really no flubs either which is rare.  They played really well that night.

    Of the 24 shows I've been to its in my top 2 with Buffalo 03.  I really don't believe the show is overhyped.

    I wasn't at the Toronto-1 2011 show, but the Bootleg is FANTASTIC!   

    As Rummy has pointed out, ther was no obvious screw ups(though, i haven't listen to it for awhile) that i recall.  The Band was on fire! I HIGHLY recommend the Bootleg.

    I wish i was at that show.
  • 3days3days Posts: 637
    I would throw East Troy, WI 2003 into the mix for consideration. I may be biased, having attended, but that was one hell of a night. Band was primed, setlist was great, crowd was cuckoo, weather was perfect, and it made for a superb bootleg... a perfect storm. 

    I've seen a handful of shows from the list, and I would say that East Troy '03 is easily one of the best that I've attended.

    Amazing, I can only imagine how much time you put into this! Great job!

    Out of interest, what was your thought process in going with Fenway 2 over Fenway 1? In my humble opinion, both we fantastic, but leading off with Release into Long Road was just incredible...goosebumps, the return of I've got a Feeling for the first time in 12 years, etc...makes night 1 do it for me.

    Canada feels 9/11 too.  We are right next door.  Was also played Kitchener 9/11 2005.  Another great show worthy of this list.

    It really came down to the length of the show. I could have easily put night 1 instead. I was very happy to be at both nights.

    Night 1 was very good but they ran up against curfew in that second encore. Night 2 was close to perfect.

    Having been at both Fenway shows, I would put night 2 ahead of night 1 for the energy alone.

    You can certainly make the argument that night one had a better set list (on paper) and it was an amazing concert but the energy level on night 2 was different & doesn’t happen every night. The only other show of the 18 I’ve been to where I can recall energy like that was Hartford ’13. Those are the nights where something amazing happens between the band & the crowd feeding off of each other.  Those are the nights that make for epic concerts and beat out all others IMO.

    Fenway 2 was a freight train, and easily one of the top 3 shows I’ve seen this band perform.

    Sick list, pretty much, if not, spot on. Similar to what a previous person asked, what was your thought process with Wrigley 2 over Wrigley 1? (I agree with you, but am just curious)

    Love the list. Fantastic work.
    But two shows I'd argue for:

    2012 - Missoula.  Playing in front of all of Jeff's friends in a 6,000 seat arena. 

    2013 - I was at Seattle show and while it was good, I was one of those that left disappointed because I had been at the show in Spokane a week earlier. The building was nuts being the first show in Spokane in 20 years. The setlist was written by band-friend Steve Gleason. Was a remarkable night. 
    I also don't think Seattle 2013 belongs in the list.
