I suppose I've been anticipating the show since the early aughts, perhaps expectations grew unreasonable.
They've never been considered all that great a live band. I saw them 8-10 times back in the 90's. Sometimes they were amazing, sometimes not so much...
They certainly were never that animated on stage, I guess that's why Bob N was in the band..
