Great show in the Summer heat of Chicago. Buddy Strong great addition, and all the band members performed as a tight unit with each of them able to shine at various points of the show.

Good N1. Nothing too exciting...a lot of the new album. I do love Sledgehammer and watchtower. Something was missing however tonight. Band was having a blast but you without Boyd there is another gear missing.

Amazing show. Got some VIP passes through sound engineer that got us access to sit above the band in the stage left wings. Amazing to interact with the band during song breaks. The breeze off the lake was amazing too, and we needed it because it was blisteringly hot.

Slow set and vibe, which was okay with me as this was an obvious tribute set to Leroi. Long live the GrooGrux King! Sledgehammer and Watchtower were great surprises.

Enjoyed the show but it never really felt like they hit their groove throughout the set. The set itself felt disjointed

One of those shows where if you just saw tje setlist you would think, great show! But alas, no...Absolutely no flow for first 90 mins, hope it was just the heat and saturday will be better

First covers of the tour - Sledgehammer (awesome) Watchtower (why just you torture me so)

Met a great Ant who sold me his tickets. Do you Remember is probably my favorite song off of the new cd, so that was awesome to hear right away. A nice mix of old and new in the middle of the set with Sledgehammer thrown in. Bayou had a Robert Randolph feel to it with Buddy on keys... sounded really good. I\'m partial to LIHOG so that was awesome. Why I am (Grux shout out) with Grey street closer was nice as well. Overall really good show. Boyd void wasn\'t as apparent as I would have thought it would be.

Meh...too hot (not the band's fault), but when you mix that in with a very hum drum performance and a stretch of slow songs, it makes for a "meh" evening.

The band was tight and looked like they were having fun. It was hot as hell out and the setlist could\'ve used a few more gems (YMDT, Bayou, Can\'t Stop Watchtower and then Jimi Thing taking up 15 mins when they were really needing a good song or 2 in there) but overall not a bad night. LOVED hearing the new songs, just wish they would\'ve thrown 1-2 more in there. 41, Rooftop, Sledgehammer & DDTW were highlights.

Good mix of old and new. New songs have potential but need some work to fill out live.

There were some great song performances (DDTW, YMDT, LITHOG, Jimi), and it was great to get Watchtower. But this venue blows, and the sound was horrible. Show 88...tomorrow will be better.

Pretty great show. Kinda frustrating when the monitors went off for a few songs because the lawn view of the stage itself was nonexistent from my spot. My first sledgehammer which was sick and a great debut. Lithog, watchtower, and come on come on were highlights. I really donít ever need to hear why I am and you and me every again though.

Excellent Show! Two cover songs were first of tour. Was happy to hear All Along the Watchtower. Love the band\'s energy. The band seems to be having a lot of fun and that a weight has been lifted from the band.

Good time. Crowd was great for the most part. Sledgehammer was cool. My opinion of that will change if they play it the next 10 shows. Watchtower has some serious potential with this lineup if they clean it up a little bit. Same story as before. If this was your first time seeing the band this year the show would not disappoint.if you have seen multiple this year you probably only got surprised by sledgehammer and watchower.

Had an absolute blast in the pit. Setlist had some classics (41, DDTW, Grey St, Jimi, wwys) and some surprises (midset Bayou, midsewt watchtower, sledgehammer) but obviously wasn\\\'t the best set ever. Missed Boyd but that shouldn\\\'t take away from what the band did on stage tonight. I thought for sure we were getting a one song encore given the curfew so props to the band for playing past it.
