Awesome! I thought I would never get to see them live, so I jumped at the chance. And I wasn’t disappointed! Loved the music and the stage!

They did play quite a few songs spanning their career and the show was early on in the tour schedule and to be honest they sounded kind of sloppy or off key on a number of songs and some songs that are powerful on CD or record didn't come off that powerful.. such as promised you a miracle.. seen them I guess what I call now is there a day in the past and they weren't quite is good this time around yet at the same time I'm happy to have seen them...
