What can I say ? Those 3 days were probably the most fun I've ever had IN MY WHOLE LIFE ! Bought extra tickets to trade locally for combustibles... successfully. Plus... beginner's luck payed off & nearly the entire weekend ended up being paid for with slot machine winnings. Viva Las Vegas !

This show is very nice, and the space is FREAKIN TRIPPY!!! They used slot machine noises in the space, its very cool, but scary and dark at the same time..

Franklins (last three times this was played, was start off of show)

So Many Roads-11th time played
Morning Dew-Solid

e: Baba OReilly (Vince)
Tomorrow Never Knows
both 3rd of 12 times played.

It is very annoying when the pianist (was it horsnby or welnick?) plays the exact same notes in Slipknot.

This gets a downgrade because of that. ANNOYING!

steve, i think thats a bit hypercritical dont you?
bruce was gone by this point so its vince on keys, and all he did was allow jerry to take a little break and prepare for his solo work in "slip" or "franklins", and the "franklins" from the following year (vegas '93) was the best ive ever heard. dont let a few notes with the keys getcha down!!

I remeber the sprinklers they had set up around the outside ring of the stadium to cool us all down. The sky was surreal and the show was jaw-dropping. Help/Slip in the first set the tone for what turned out to be a stellar party. Listening to Cornell '77 as i write and feeling nostalgic....

this "so many roads" is much more better than the one on "so many roads" box-set,which was from the last show-07-09-1995.

only "it must have been the roses" of '92
- (12/13/2009)

This was for sure the highlight of Vegas 1992. HELPSLIPFRANK is always a strong opener. BIRD SONG was killer and the second set was too.
The encore was stunning!

Nice to see this show getting the respect it deserves. This and the previous night are among the best of the '90's.

I could be mistaken but isnt Steve Miller on Attics through Tomorrow Never Knows?
-Sgt. Pepper (12/18/2012)

That is correct Sgt Pepper. He can CLEARLY be heard on the Dew and seems to be settled in by that point. Bobby and Jerry were both looking over and smiling at times encouraging Steve to let loose a little. By Dew Steve sure seemed to have found his chops and if not one of the BEST then CERTAINLY one of the most interesting Dews happens. Listen to any decent recording (or better yet watch the video to see the interaction between them) and you'll see/hear right where Steve comes out of his shell and shines. Surprised no one had mentioned it prior!! This show smoked from start to finish.

-gdjake (02/11/2014)

Second time I personally witnessed this...someone flew over the arena in an ultra-light...Jerry looked up and saw the plane and immediately launched into Bird Song! (other time was Oxford Speedway, ME)
