It has been well over 11 years since this performance in Norfolk, VA on November 11, 1996 took place and no recordings have ever been reported to exist, leading to the likely conclusion that it was not recorded - the only show from this tour with such a distinguished status. In a tour where nearly every show was well recorded by tapers, circulated among fans and traders and treasured and documented, one might say this show is special simply due to its absence, but that would be selling this particular performance short. It seems to have been unavailable on us all these years for a reason as it lives up to its mythological status with an effortlessly brilliant performance, eclectic song selection and quicksilver sequencing. The setlist is heavily concentrated on post-Southern Harmony & Musical Companion material, an important facet of the ‘character’ of this show. The set features two songs from the then-unreleased Tall, five from Amorica and four songs from the new album Three Snakes And One Charm.
