All the bands were awesome! I laughed, I cried, and I was left wanting more. What more can I say. These kids are awesome. I know from my own experience how much hard work, time, and effort goes into these shows. Let me tell you it is worth every second of it. What a heck of a performance from all the participants. Well worth the price compared to what I would have spent on gas to drive to Indy to see it.
Thank you DCI :-)

DCI is always a must-see. It'd be nice if the theater we saw it at treated it that way. The south lobby concession stand was closed, the bathrooms were filthy, and for some reason the entrance to the screen room smelled like someone had barfed a few minutes earlier. Five stars for the show, but just one for the theater.

Although I loved the big screen again, I was disappointed however, that since corps now "perform" prior to the actual start with the drum major, DCI announcers were chatting and DCI ads were still on the screen so we were not able to see several of the corps' true beginning, ESPECIALLY the 75th anniversary show for the MADISON SCOUTS. That was my only complaint. Glad I got to see their entire beginning at Allentown, but the ppl in the theater missed out!
It was nice to get inside scoops about the corps, where their ideas came from, etc, thru the interviews and commentators.
Overall, it's a great opportunity to see the corps when making the trip out to Indiana just isn't possible!

Great show!!! Our location, Mesquite AMC 30 had some issues right at the beginning of the broadcast but it came on before the first corps stepped off and everything was perfect after that. I would have liked for the audio to be up more during the intermission but again, I believe that was the local theatre and not the broadcast.
Can't wait until next year! It's not the same as seeing the corps live but it is the next best thing and much better than watching at home on a small screen.

My husband marched in a corp years ago but due to several illnesses we've not been able to attend any of the live stadium events! We sat and thoroughly enjoyed the DCI Big, Loud & Live event and AMC's Showplace 16!!!
If I can make only one suggestion, it would have been good to have auditorium lights up during intermission and when the program was over. It made it very difficult to see while leaving!
Great night! Thank you! Looking forward to next year!
