DSOTM # 131 - 6/26/94

This months podcast takes us all the way towards the end... the Summer 1994 Tour, and this show stands tall proclaiming: "The band still has IT!"  Fans of any era should find this musical experience engaging.  The whole tour as thrown off by a month due to the World Cup soccer tournament, so the dead landed in Vegas in late June.  Bob and myself were at this show, and it served as both of our "last great show"... and what a show it is.  It was crazy hot, every song went that extra mile, and a fine musical journey was crafted out under the desert sky once again.  Enjoy the show, we sure did.
