I would like to thank DT for yet another spellbinding concert. My 5th time seeing them live and their shows continue to be the gold standard by which I measure all others.
I am compelled to share the following thoughts: it is humbling in my opinion how dedicated these guys are to the fans. It has to be so easy to just dial in these shows after doing this for anything more than 5 or 6 years. Not so with DT. I've been at venues where there are around 3000 attendees up to around 10,000 I'd guess and they are equally electric each time. Hell - it was an outdoor venue and it had got up to 105 in KC yesterday and was not below 90 during the entire concert and it was still delivered with passion and energy. There is a reason why your fans would follow you to hell guys, and the above are some of the reasons why.
Mike Mangini has absolutely breathed new life into this group. It was not that they were dwindling in the past but I feel like it is truly explosive now. I credit both Mike and the group's subsequent reaction to him.
I had frankly given up on hearing 6:00 or Caught in a Web at a concert. In fact, I've spoken to a number of DT fans and none of them had heard 6:00 before live. And...there I was yesterday and the second song...BAM! 6:00! Thank you so much for playing this.
In closing, when I die and my Spirit Carries On, I'll know I'm Heaven-bound when I hear DT blasting from On High as I ascend.
