I've been fascinated seeing how much good press this tour has gotten. My wife and I went in Pomona and walked out early absolutely hating what we had just seen. The performance didn't do any justice to the original recordings and Leighton seemed to use the show as an hour and a half of ego stroking. Just wasn't feeling it at all.
I saw them open up for The Dear Hunter right after Illuminate came out while Mindy was still in the band, & that was a fantastic show. The band was the same band who wrote Illuminate, & the vibe was there. I understand what people are saying, but I do still think it was amazing, its always some type of special to see one of your favorite albums played front to back.
