POOR PERFORMANCE, RAY
I've seen many concerts and have to say this one disappointed the most. Ray lacked the necessary skills to connect with the audience and definitely is self-indulgent. Agree with so many others here about his piss poor performance. Boo

RAY! WHAT THE HECK?!?
We were very pumped to see Ray again - this was our second time, the first being when he played at Verizon Wireless Center a few years ago and captivated us with his performance, most notably with the song, Empty. After that show we immersed ourselves in his music and came to love many, many of his songs - none of which were played last night at SFC. We thought that a lot of the new songs were great, but to not hear a single one of his old hits was a huge disappointment. Honestly, I question Ray's business savvy, because like many other fans, we vowed to never spend our hard-earned money on one of his shows again.

WILL NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN
It sounds like Ray doesn't care about giving fans what they want. Fans are what made you successful Ray - it doesn't take much for your to work in 4 or 5 known songs to make your fans, the ones who pay for your music and tickets, feel like the concert was worth the money. I felt ripped off. This was the show in Austin on 6/9/18. Many people were leaving early and didn't even stay for the encore. We left at the third song of the encore when we figured he was not going to play any hits. Ray - just look out at the crowd. Everyone was sitting down, nobody was singing. And I am sure many thought it was a waste of money. I'll never pay to see you again. That bridge is burned.

BUMMER AT THE GREEK
He completely disappointed!! This was such a waste of a beautiful night, no interaction and the music was just not good. The guitar solos from his lead were flat out not good, I have seen some of the best and this was far from it. Left after 10 songs

I've been listening to Ray Lamontagne for over 10 years and was super excited to go see him tonight at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix Arizona. Sadly it was very disappointing. All the songs that I loved that showcase his bluesy amazing raspy voice were nowhere to be found. The audience begged him to play Jolene, ttrouble , you are the best thing.. he completely ignored what the audience wanted. I understand he's promoting his new album but I have to say that I probably will never listen to him again. Apparently his Fame has gone to his head and he doesn't care what his audience wants anymore. By Ray...

LOVE RAY, DISAPPOINTED IN THE SHOW
Saw the "Just Passing Through" show in Los Angeles. Am such a huge fan, but the show was weak. Big, beautiful old theatre, but his voice was just lost. He and his co-performer (guitarist, keyboard player) stood on two big blue rugs that were just weird. All Ray's power was just...sucked into the ether. I actually put on my earbuds and listened to some of my favorite songs (like Summer) on my phone as he performed. Very disappointed. Kind of ruined my appreciation of him and his music. Hope I can get back to where I was before I went to see this weird and weak show.

2 YEARS LATER AND STILL UPSET OVER HOW BAD RAY WAS
Greek theatre, Part of the Light tour 2018. Obviously knew Ray from his older stuff, but had listened to the new album and liked some of it...but didn't expect that to be the entire show. His vocals were unrecognizable, sounded like a gutteral high school battle of bands performance. Zero awarenesss or interest in half the audience who paid $200+ giving up and leaving an hour into the show. Long time fan, still love his music, but will never pay to see him live again. Worst show I've ever been too, the bad taste from the experience still hasn't left me.
