In this piece the newspaper's music critic, Dan Aquilante, called the show "sizzling" and said "Johns was incredible". He closed with with some sage advice ... "if Silverchair plays another NYC gig, don't miss it".

Meanwhile, legendary US music scribe, David Fricke, praised the show for Rolling Stone magazine. In his review posted online he noted the absence of any early Chair songs before concluding that "for Silverchair, today is a lot more interesting than "Tomorrow."
