Thread: Saturday Night -- My final ABB show

What a great show! Even the "Into The Mystic" which I do not particularly care for was great. Nice Bill Graham dedication to boot on the 23rd anniversary of his death. "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" with "Politician" thrown in there as a tip of the cap to Jack Bruce was excellent and very thoughtful. "Jessica" and "Hot'Lanta" were the gems in my opinion. I thought the show was so good that I was resolute in being there on Tuesday for the finale. Upon reflection, my feelings coming out of Saturday's show were so positive, I am going to let sleeping dogs lie and make Saturday, my 69th ABB show, my last. To all who go tonight and tomorrow, I hope your sentiments leaving the Beacon are as strongly positive and memorable as mine. I have been attending this band's shows since 1989 and I could not have asked for more on Saturday. A chapter of my life (more than half of it) has closed and it was a very good chapter.

Guru - totally agree. With previous plans I can not make it tonight or Tuesday. But after Saturday's show it is hard to be disappointed as it was THAT great. Definitely going out on a high note.

That really was an amazing show. Al of it, and it's funny but that version of Into the Mystic was what stayed in my head after I left, and into the following day.
I am very hopeful they will surprise us all and come back together to play again in a few years. Stranger and less likely things have happened.
