The Chariot played first. I've seen them 7 or 8x, and I do not like them very much. Tons of live energy, but they are not musicians.

For Today played next, and the crowd went crazy for them. They're a band that, ever since the 1st time I saw them in 2007 or 2008, I have only missed them once when they've come through town b/c I was sick, and I've made several road trips to see them. They're really a great live band. I hope they do another headlining tour soon.

Saul of Tarsus (The Messanger)
Under God

As I Lay Dying was next. This was the 1st time I've seen 'em since AWAKENED came out. The highlight for me was hearing the new songs, particularly "Whispering Silence." That song was amazing! They also had a really cool light show. They are 1 of my favorite live bands. They have so much energy on stage, and they're great musicians. I've seen them at least a dozen times, and this was the best show from them that I've ever seen. They absolutely DESTROYED!

A New Foundation
94 Hours
Anodyne Sea
Whispering Silence
Wasted Words
The Sound of Truth
Nothing Left
Through Struggle

The Devil Wears Prada played last, but I don't know enough of their songs to give a setlist. I've seen them live 4x now. I like them, and their set was good, but As I Lay Dying & For Today were impossible to follow.

Nice review. The Devil Wears Prada played first at my date and I don't see how they could possibly follow As I Lay Dying in terms of energy.

As I Lay Dying have a good set for this tour and it is nice to see a good mix of old and new songs. I always wish their sets were 4-5 songs longer though. Also Within Destruction would be welcomed in this set but they were awesome nonetheless. Glad to hear they were just as good at your date, those guys always bring it live.

I left before Prada, and that was a good choice.

The fact that you said The Chariot aren't musicians and NickLed doesn't like TDWP makes me sad.
