This is from their Facebook-
"We apologize to everyone who came to see us in St. Louis tonight. We tried to make this happen, but as anyone who was at the show tonight knows, it was a very difficult situation.” The band later added, “There are many things to address here, and we don’t want to keep feeding the negativity. We do want to let it be clear that Travis was in no way pressured into this reunion. In fact, it was very much the other way around. Travis literally begged us to do this tour, on the phone, in text, and in person. He had burned so many bridges in his career that no one would hire him to play a show anymore for fear that he would not show up. He knew the original lineup would lend credibility to the project and help him rebuild his career. Unfortunately, he was not able to handle the responsibility or manage his issues.

There were problems with the sound from the start, and Travis was angry. There were not very many people there and it is not a nice place. You could feel the tension. The show actually got better as it went on, more music and less rhetoric. The other 3 guys soldiered on, playing great as usual but they also appeared frustrated or unhappy imo. There were about 12 songs on the setlist which we could see on stage. Touch Peel and Stand was 8th and after the song Jessie took the mike and said something like "you have witnessed something special. that is the last song Days of the New will play together".
