This was the third of four nights in New York. Although not quite as good as the second night's (when they played the entire The Downward Spiral album), but I was satisfied with the setlist. Their show lasted nearly 2.5 hours. Not much talking between songs and the encore breaks were short, so we heard a lot of music.

Unfortunately, this venue is horrible. The air conditioning was broken so it was hotter than hell. The place was packed (which I guess is understandable since the show was sold out), but this was packed to the point that I thought it might exceed the maximum allowed by the fire marshal. Furthermore, the sight lines are really bad. Unless you're in the center of the floor, or the first row of the balconies, it's impossible to see the whole stage. Also, the bathrooms are poorly located so you have to push through the packed crowd in order to get to them.

Also, I got fucked by traffic on the way home. It took me 3.5 hours to get home, an hour longer than it took me to get to the concert during rush hour traffic! Curse whoever is in charge of construction for NJDOT and NJTA.
