My wife and I thought the show was fantastic. Peter's voice sounded stronger than it has in the past 10 years (not that it has sounded bad in the past). One thing that became apparent with some people in the audience where we were seated was how underutilized Manu Katché was last night. The guy basically carried the beat as if he was just there to mimic the CDs. He didn't really add any extra fills or unique flavor to his drumming - He's too talented of a drummer to be used like he was. We left a bit disappointed in that aspect of the show but overall it was well worth our money. Peter, Tony, David, and the gang were excellent.
PS. They're crazy if they thought we'd pay $40 for a T-shirt.

Excellent concert. New song: along the lines of Father Son with piano/bass; interesting to hear Gabrielese and see the work in progress.
Come Talk to Me and Shock accoustic: A real treat. Family Portrait: Voice was perfect. Family and the Fishing Net: Strong performances.
Set list is perfect. That Voice again, We Do What We're Told, and This Is the Picture are all some the highlights of the So list. The Tower is powerful and Biko is awesome.

It was Philly Phantastic! More later when my feet touch the ground, but one of the highlights for me personally was that they had only one fuck up of the nite---which Peter brought to our attention. I don't think any of us would have noticed!

We do love Philly!
Once again, Philly is shaping up to be the best show of the tour.
The place was packed to the rafters.
The crowd was overwhelmingly fantastic.
And Peter was in rare form, he was definitely feeling it!
I was on the floor in the 16th row, the entire arena was singing and the floor was on their feet for almost every song. A perfect evening!
All I can say is Philly Rocks! If we are lucky enough to get another PG tour down the road... I'll be driving off, in my car - for the 400 mile ride to Philly again.

Bob G -- You said it all, pal! I try to avoid reviews of PG shows -- as much as I can go on and on and on about anything, I truly do not write reviews of the shows for several reasons:
1) I feel as if I would be saying the same thing over and over again -- I have never NOT liked a PG show, but I have had favorite ones, but still never disliked any, so I'd write the same thing about that;
2) I am biased in my opinion -- both of PG and of Philly, so again, my review would not be a bit objective and that's not fair, really;
3) for me to compare shows is often difficult -- again, I don't want to say one crowd is better than another, yet, that is what it comes down to sometimes;
4) During the concert, I am super absorbed in all that's happening, yet I cannot tell you what song is played when (well, this time with SO it might be easier, but even with that, I hadn't listened to SO for awhile, so didn't have it memorized track by track ), I'd make a helluva critic, wouldn't I?
But, based on several comments/reviews here and elsewhere and in person -- a woman from Chicago (who's attending the show there tonight) was at the Philly show and the NY show (where we met and spoke) and she had been worried about the Philly crowd because Chicago has such a great crowd, she didn't think it would compare -- she was so happy about Philly and agreed that our section in NY were no where near as enthusiastic as they might have been anywhere else.
Philly loves PG, as well as many other towns do, I'm sure, and I wouldn't mind a bit if he had to add just one more single night to this tour, on his way home and make it a Philly night! I'd even drive him from VA to PA if he needed a ride :>)
