One review said, "It was a good concert that could have been fabulous [if it weren't for the instrumentals]."
Another review said, "It could have been a historical concert, but the transition from rapping to the instruments destroyed the rhythm of the concert."
Yet another review was even more upfront about not liking the instrumentals: "Beastie Boys are much more charming when they stick to hip-hop or punk-rock." The reviewer sums up the set by describing it as "satisfactory enough."
The same review describes the opening of the show:
"The band's entrance on stage was somewhat disastrous. After a short but impressive introduction [by Mix Master Mike], Mike D, Adrock and MCA walked on stage for "Body Movin'." It would have been a perfect opener if you could hear the three. Only one microphone looked to be connected."
With reviews like these, you have to remember that reviewers are paid to be critical. It's what the fans say that matters. So far, I've only heard from one fan who saw the Beastie Boys set. She was able to help me with the setlist (I believe we have all the songs performed listed now). She only had good things to say about the band's set at the Alive Festival.
