Loved the show. Gord sounded great vocally and the band was fantastic as always. I thought the super rarity out of the archives was Man Machine Poem, but not sure about the set list history of the song. Really great to see them again after several years and super cool to have it be at such an iconic venue! Was the upper balcony full to the top? Couldn't see from the loge. Glad to see the boys made in safely to Boston through the weather.

ok...the theatre is incredible but the lines for a drink were crazy...we were at the back on the main floor and under the balcony which also impacted sound...I am not a fan of doing this but we did move up and kinda hung out about 6 rows back in the aisle...there were a few doing this and security was pretty cool about it....

Downie was on fire...best I've seen him in maybe 10 years! I went to the warm up show at the Danforth and he was good there, but he was absolutely stellar last night...the band was having fun and the crowd was right into it...I went with 2 friends and it was one's first hip show and he was blown away. he knew maybe 20% of the songs and kept looking at me to get the name of the song...and then followed by an "amazing".

Looking forward to a Day for night tour :)

Online review for the nyc show at the Beacon. Couple video highlights really not much commentary.

Show was excellent
however found it strange that they left the stage after 4 songs, everyone in my group was like that is the shortest set ever!
Gord sounded great the venue was awesome
it was my 5th time at the venue and I have never seen so many lines for booze, I guess hip fans drink!
Was there last week for umphreys and lines were no where near that

only thing that sucked was how short the show was
they ended at 10:40

They could have come out and played a few more songs or started the show a little later

an hour and half is a short show especially for the beacon where bands go there to give it there all

it is clear this show is all about getting it over with !

An extra 1 to 2 song encore would have made the show the tits !

highlights where
man machine poet
poets
50 mc
elderado
grace
blow

the band does sound amazing !
def go check them out but don't expect a long show
I felt ripped off for how short the show was

Great Show!

Row AA
Drink lines were crazy but typical.
Nice Venue. Reminded me a little of the Landmark in Syracuse.
Rob played Wheat Kings lap style. Don't remember seeing that before. See attached pic
