Fifty years of popularity in the music industry is a stunning feat in this day and age of instant gratification that favors the latest and greatest. Few bands see their albums remain extraordinarily relevant and still consistently churning new fans a half century past the initial release. This is certainly the case for Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, which celebrates fifty years as an album this year, and continues to be a shepherd for new fans into the classic rock genre.

On July 31, Phish will release Chicago '94, a brand new 6-CD box set, showcasing two complete shows recorded live on June 18, 1994 and November 25, 1994 at UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL.

The official launch of Page's tour was here in Philadelphia at the World Café Live about a month earlier than this show, and it was broadcasted live for WXPN. I played hooky from work that day to review that show, and on this night I expected many of the same songs from the new self-titled album.
