I pretty much agree with everyone else's posts. Amazing. I couldn't get my head around what I'd just seen walking out of that place. I was so high from the show I made it all the way home back to Boise afterwards. Incredible. Amazing. The utmost in entertainment! I love this band!

I was in the tenth row pretty much center. Would like to have been closer but still had a great view.

Im still blown away at how awesome this show was!!! me and my girlfriend stayed after and met all the guys. They were all so great to stop and have their picture taken or sign an autograph. I had my picture taken with James Labrie and even though Im 40 years old, I felt like a little kid standing next to my idol! Mike Mangini was so freakin' awesome during the show and after when he stopped to talk to us. They all shook my hand and were very cool.

@solitaryshell: well I was sitting row 2 four seats in from the left side, where were you at?

Wow. Just wow. I don't even know what to say. I just want to make sure each and every member of the band understands how much the SLC fans appreciate you coming to town. Your music truly moves me, and I'll see you perform every chance I get. Thanks for a tremendous show, and the venue was perfect. James worked the place like it was a dive bar, rather than a stadium. Something, I'm sure, we all enjoyed a great deal.

Now that was worth the wait. These guys just get better and better, what a great concert. I think this is the best light show I've seen them have on stage, the lights were sensational and really highlighted the songs very well. What can I say about Mangini? Actually I can't say anything because I am speechless after watching him. You have to see him in action to understand what a freak of nature he is. The hand and arm speed is blinding. What he does with each arm/hand is boggling. Holy crap I think we were all mesmerized during his solo thinking no way. But I saw it, I believe it, and it has to be one of the best drum solos I've ever seen. For those of you who said to skip the solo in the setlist, um, you don't want to skip it.

We got Setlist A, for lack of better words, with Outcry/UAGM. I wanted so bad to get the Breaking all Illusions/encore list but Outcry was actually very good. Some others that I thought were done perfectly were The Great Debate, Endless Sacrifice, The Ytse Jam and Fatal Tragedy. I also thought it was a nice touch on the acoustic tracks of The Silent Man and Beneath the Surface.

All in all, great show. The guys looked great with a lot of energy.

I cant wait!!! the magic happens tonight! 4th time seeing DT live and I get just as excited everytime. Im not too familiar with Trivium, but who knows, maybe Ill love 'em. The first time I saw DT was on the Awake tour with Fates Warning opening up for them! That was a progressive metal dream.

[quote=chiefsdawg]@YTSE: dude thats cool what your family did, building DT set from legos and the artwork, nice....[/quote]

Thanks chiefsdawg. They had a lot of fun building it, need to take a pic I guess, they even built an audience with the characters they have left over. Wish I could spend the cash to take them but they are a little too young but they do love DT.

So cool to see Jordan posted to your message chiefsdawg (and this board)! Told all my friends and they thought that was very cool! Very few artists are that personable with their fans. Cant wait to see them only 3.5 days left and counting!! DT is the BEST!

Would be awesome to see Jordan roaming the streets of SLC, that would be a nice surprise.
