The media reviews of the Tubs' tour have been ecstatic. This one is from the Dallas Morning News, and the reviewer also wrote this. He says: "I can't overemphasize how fantastic Wednesday's Foxboro Hot Tubs concert was at the Loft."
This is from a review of the Austin show, in Sound Check:
It wasn’t American Idiot, but it was better in so many ways. These guys, who could be sitting on their asses enjoying their massive wealth, were in Austin, TX on a little punk-rock stage - and they were doing it for their fans and for themselves, for the fun of it. These guys are among the greatest live music performers of our time, and, apparently, they want to connect with their fans in a real and intimate way, just as they did 20 years ago.Rolling Stone reviewed the FBHT show in Austin, here, and The Arizona Republic has an article looking forward to the Phoenix show on May 25.
