Chicago 2018 [no label, 2CD]

Lollapalooza. Bud Light Stage, Grant Park, Chicago, Illinois; August 3, 2018. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

Thanks to indykid for sharing the HDTV webcast at Dime.

The biggest crowd of the festival might have drawn many numbers away from the competing headlining stage played by The National, but it didn’t effect them or their show one bit. Honestly the smaller crowd, made it feel more intimate, more honest and quite honestly better.

The National’s shows are always going to include lots of emoting, lots of moody blue lighting, but plenty of moments to rock. They hit every right note on the show and the crowd loved it. Their show flowed perfectly and really showed why The National has grown to the level they are at now. -
