If it weren't for the video proof, I wouldn't have believed that they performed "Rhymin' & Stealin'."

    "Best. Concert. Ever. I yelled throughout the whole show, screamed every lyric and danced and jumped about like a crazy. It was super fun."

    "It was an amazing show. They may be getting older, but they've still got the "gro-hoove." Mix Master Mike does some loving awesome stuff on the turntables...The crowd was weird. There were people from 18 to 45, so super diverse. Everyone was hammered drunk even though the ACC stopped serving $13 domestic beer at 9:30, and after about half an hour, there was a cloud of marijuana smoke in the air."

    Rhymin' & Stealin'?! ...and those reviews are the best! Looks like Canada got some love.

    Too bad Canada's number one Beastie Boys fan wasn't there.

    Rhymin' & Stealin'? I guess the band heard the complaints about no surprises on this tour!

    The videos show it to be a high-energy concert.

    Looks like an awesome show!

    On the boards members who were at the show said they played Riot Fight before Sabotage...fuckin nutty...wish i coulda been there.

    I think the people on the board are mistaken. Bboys played "Egg Raid on Mojo" before "Sabotage." Check out the video I linked.

    they said riot fight was played on saturday night's gala event :)

    It's weird that they're pulling out new old stuff at the end of the tour. I wonder what motivated them to do so.

    I wanted to hear "Freaky Hijiki" on this tour. Yeah, that didn't happen and won't happen.

    They most definitely played Riot Fight before Sabotage. Yauch suggested it at the last minute so it wasn't planned as a sure thing. Mike D said he thought the punk songs were going over weird with the crowd... Yauch said it was only 30 seconds anyway so fuck it.

    Highlight of both nights was Rhymin and Stealin. It was tight as hell.

    We're talking about the hip-hop show here. I don't have any info on the Gala Event because nobody is writing or saying anything about it.
