Night One of the highly-anticipated three-night run at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce, CO went down on Friday and in keeping with 2011’s “S” show and last year’s “F.U.C.K.Y.O.U.R.F.A.C.E.” offering, the band anagram’d “MOST SHOWS SPELL SOMETHING” backwards with their song selections. Continue below to see what went down. Now that the shenanigans are out of the way it’ll be interesting to see what’s in store for the rest of the weekend at Dick’s.

Slave to the Traffic Light followed Twist and it was on par with other excellent versions this year. Encore begins with Oh! Sweet Nuthin'…
