I saw them this year in Washington and couldn't get off the high I felt after seeing them for at least a week. It is still the most amazing performance I have ever seen and I don't think that I can ever forget the experience. The band is so talented. Matt's voice is extraordinary and his guitar skills are top notch. Dom can play some wicked drums and he always entertains in his costumes. Last but not least Chris with some amazing vocals to balance Matt and the best bass skills I have ever seen or heard.

Best band! They are so amazing, great voice, great guitar, great piano, great bass, great drums and a perfect performance with many special effects and stuff! HAARP is the best example. I really want to see them live!

Just seen these live and it most definitely should be on your bucket list if you've never seen them! The best band I've ever seen live!
