Fan Review by Beastienut:
As you can see from the two different types of tickets shown, like many shows, this show had two types of seating arrangements: a "main floor" and an "assigned seats" section. Being the unlucky fan I was at the time, I had an assigned seat ticket. When the show began, I ran into one of my friends who had a wrist bracelet, which allowed access to the "main floor." I took this opportunity to ask him if I could borrow his bracelet to get me, my girlfriend Melissa, and my brother Aaron down to the main floor. As one person would get down to the main floor, we would pass the bracelet to the next person until everybody was down. This was all done in a matter of minutes. Now we were able to really enjoy the show. As the show came to an end with "So What'cha Want" as the encore, Cypress Hill came out to perform their ending "Soul Assassin Remix" version with Mike D's birthday cake in hand. As the song came to an end, both Cypress and the Beasties decided to throw the cake in the crowd to show their love for all their fans. Another great show I will always remember...

Critics' Picks
The Beastie Boys/the Rollins Band/Cypress Hill, Friday at Sam Houston Coliseum -- They're baaack! The bad white boys of hip-hop have learned how to rock as well as rap, so "Check Your Head.'' Rollins, former Black Flag screamer, can't sing, but he can go on a "poetic" tirade. Hardcore rappers Cypress Hill might be the most interesting thing on the bill. 8 p.m.; $18 in advance.
