To sum it up we drove 8 hours from Montana, it was well worth the drive. Opening band were some local guys called Saving Grace(or something) who at first I was a little excited for because the bassist and rhythm guitar player looked metal as shit, but wound up playing angsty teen rock Trivium esque music. It was shit.
Then there was Tesseract. Who I'd never heard of, but they had excellent use of time signature chugs... but the vocalist sort of sounded too much like he belonged in a screamo band for me.
Anyways... Devin Townsend:
Addicted
Supercrush
Kingdom
Deadhead
Truth
Om
By Your Command
Life
Gaia
Pixilated
Bad Devil
----
Color Your World
The Greys
---
Deep Peace

He was amazing, one of the best shows I've ever been too. We waited for 2 hours after the show in the Seattle rain to meet him, I'd recommend it. He is an extremely charismatic person.

Awesome! Thanks. Now I can fill in the blanks on my Van setlist. Though, while looking up the titles, I found nothing about a song called "Pixelated" =S. Elaborate?

This was such an amazing set from Devin, first time seeing him and I really hope he comes around again soon.

I missed the first two bands since my friends and I were out "Party Vanning".

I loved when Devin jumped off stage and ran up to the bar, that was so awesome. Here are a few [crappy cell phone] pictures that I and my friend got. (hope they show up)

I totally forgot he got rid of the skullet.

Can't wait for the MA date in a few weeks. Pretty good set, but really I'm just glad to be seeing Devin again at all.

I missed this in Van the opening tour date. Ive seen Strapping Young Lad twice ALIEN era. So I figured if I didnt go to this, its no biggie.

Do any of you dudes know if he is going to change songs up during this tour or stick to this? No Ki songs is also surprising.

He has so many songs to choose from...crossing my fingers for Earth Day and Bastard.

Totally agree. He needs to play those songs, Canada and Slow Me Down

The show was unbelievably awesome! And part of the allure to me was how intimate the setting was. When he hopped off stage and went up to the bar -- that was very fitting.

The man is an excellent showman, that's for sure. How he talked to the audience, dealt with little technical glitches, that sort of thing -- very cool. If you don't come away from seeing this show as a bigger fan than you were before, I'd be very surprised.

I personally really liked the first band. I was expecting a crappy bar band (not that there's anything wrong with crappy bar bands) but right off the bat I was impressed with how tight they were and how professional they sounded. Obviously they're not a big touring band, but they performed far better than I expected.

Oh, and their name is Darkest Grace (I thought it was Dark Disgrace and couldn't find them, but finally asked someone else...) Anyway, here's their ReverbNation page: http://www.reverbnation.com/darkestgrace

The UK band on tour with Devin was also quite good. I thoroughly enjoyed their set and was impressed, too. My understanding is they'll be touring along with DTP for the duration of the tour. Worth seeing, IMHO.

Ziltoidia Attaxx!!! (seriously, perfect opener) and Vampolka/Vampira would be nice additions to the set too
