Excellent. The recordign equipment was a little intrusive, but the playing was phenomenal, the DaveSpeak was hilarious, and Tim's solos were unreal. Totally amazing.

I have been to hundreds of concerts by tons of artists that run the gamut of different styles. This show was, hands down, unequivocally, the greatest musical performance I have ever seen. Period. Sheer brilliance for well over 3 hours.

AWESOME SHOW!! First Dave show for me.. I'm so glad it was with Tim. They both did an awesome job!! Great set list along with some awesome Davespeak. Also, cameras and video equipment everywhere, so hopefully a DVD is in the future!!

the most amazing nite ever. i finally got to hear my favorite version of my favorite song... 2 step!

This was an amazing show. I was originally happy with the seats we had (row R - main floor) when we got there we realized they had rows AA - ZZ then rows A - Z so we were to be in Row 47. Well, someone was in our seats and didn't want to move so the house manager moved us to row KK which was row 11...so close...WOW!! Definitely worth flying from San Diego to Chicago.

Incredible. They videotaped the entire concert, hopefully for a DVD release. Great set list. Great Dave speak. Great. Great. Great

Excellent show, excellent night. The new song Stay or Leave was awsome. Hopefully more than a DVD we get some sort of live CD, especially since the song set was almost completely different than Luther College.

Amazing show!! We met Dave & Tim when the bus pulled up and then snuck into Elliott Hall during the soundcheck due to a "connection" we had there. We heard 3 songs and then a security guard kindly asked us to leave. The show that night was amazing and the crowd was very into it. Dave & Tim seemed to enjoy it very much. I was sad that they never released this on video/audio after the full taping crew was there. This is probably one of my Top 3 shows.

WOW..Thats all I can say about this acoustic evening!!

User: cgbale
Review:
An amazing 3+ hour show. This is the best show I've attended of any DMB / D&T show. The crowd was very respectful, unlike the last D&T show in Lousiville where everyone was in and out of their seats. I'm glad to alcohol was severed so that people were concentrating only on the show. A camera man was there some reason and provided some comic relief between songs and during as well. I was hoping for a concert DVD but that never happened. Every song was perfect and sitting in the center section in the front row was a very fortunate situation that made the performance even more surreal.

this show was freakin' amazing! three and a half hours of pure acoustic goodness. Rare show in a small venue that was almost impossible to get tickets to = one of the most fulfilling concerts that i have ever seen.

12th show. My little bro's 1st show. 8th row. Coolest thing I've ever seen in my life. Timmy is so good it's sick. I'm officially a Dave junkie at this point.

This was my first time seeing Dave and Tim together and I thought this show was amazing. I love the way they work off of each other and play so well together.

first dave and tim show! crush, busted stuff, tim solos two step and nancies were highlights!!!

User: DanOnGreyStreet
Review:
11th Row center in center seats... with the AM.org legend Joe Malizeski. Great show. We got in early, got released tickets and kept on trading up with the box office. Highlights for the night were definately Satellite intro, Crush, Long Black Veil, The Stone, and Tim Reynolds' soloing. And being about 3 feet from the man himself. Crowd was much better here than Miami. Good Davespeak... he reminds us that "when you gotta go, you gotta go" and rehashed the point not to smell your fingers. Oh yeah, DVD SHOW!!! Maybe?

right in my backyard at Purdue... braved -15 degree windchill for 30 hours in line outside Elliott Hall, but it was worth it for 6th row seats!!!

Absolutely amazing. A great night of stories and classic DMB tunes.

An experience that I will NEVER forget! It was, without any doubt the best dave show I have ever seen. Setlist was awesome. Davespeak had everybody cracking up. He mentioned that every once and awhile he could feel the stage move and if it was the end "at least we would all be together"...what more could you ask for?!

Best show that I have ever been to, I camped out overnight to get tickets and it was worth it, we had great seats. I talked to one of the camera men and they said that they were taping the show with the possibility of a dvd or cd release. I was very pleased with the setlist, I can't believe how many people were hetting up to leave during Tim's solos. The crowd was into it the whole night, everyday was cool with the crowd signing "...Come and dance..." Bartender was a great opener. Nancies was a predictable closer as the night went on. Man what a great show!!! Oh yeah I got some great pics of Dave and Tim before and after the shoe. AND I got to shake Dave's hand and tell him how great of a show it was and he replied "Thank you, glad you enjoyed it". It was awesome!!!

I thought that this was an excellent show, this was the first time i saw dave and tim and it was well worth the 5 hour drive on a test night. I hope to see this show released on dvd and cd in a couple of months.

User: grock
Review:
awesome show. tim was on his game and dave had an extra bit of raspiness in his voice. gave many of the songs an extra dimension i ain't seen before. the satellite intro was the sickest thing ever. did anyone else notice dave kinda screw up going into the last chorus of Cry Freedom. he looked over at tim and chuckled.

Out of 11 shows, with a lot of cool ones that I've seen (including GGP and a couple great Riverbend shows) I'd say this one still takes the cake for me. Unbelievable night, great music, very cool intimate setting. Hope one day we get another D&T tour!

absolutly hands down the best show I have ever seen. Truly amazing to be in such a close nit friendly environment. atmosphere was one of a kind!!!!!

User: jmm42282
Review:
This was one of the most amazing shows I've ever seen!! The setlist was excellent, Dave and Tim were dynamic together and the overall feeling of the evening was powerful. Dave claimed to "have a frog in his throat," but the notes he was hitting right off the start of the show during the end scat/jam of "Bartender" sounded fine to me. There was also a ridiculous amount of sound and video recording equipment there. I really hope that this show gets released on one of their live trax albums or as a full dvd/cd release like the the Gorge or Central Park. It was just amazing!!

The intimate setting of just 6000 people let Dave be real open and tell a lot of funny stories. Two of the best jams ever on Crush and Two Step!

Excellent in every aspect. The setlist was brilliant and sounded great. I paid $200 for aisle 2 row T and would have paid a thousand. Most memorable parts: jam at the end of Crush and Everday/#36 (backup by crowd). I will never forget this show.

Not as good as Miami, but Busted Stuff, Blue Water, PFWYG, Tripping Billies. . .I loved it. . .and it might be a DVD/Music video!

User: PurdueDMBFan
Review:
This was my first Dave and Tim Acoustic concert and I have to say it was ranks at the top of my Dave experiences. Not only were the songs fresh and sounded excellent but Dave himself was hilarious! And you could actually understand him in the close setting of Elliott Music Hall. Bartender is always a great opener and he played some songs I didn't expect. I love the mix of #36 and Everyday, which sounds excellent. As does Gravedigger which I didn't expect at all! Tim had two excellent solos that were literally mind-boggling. All of the song were very mellow and sounded excellent. The only part I didn't like so much was the crowd yelling out at times, however, that is to be expected at a Dave and Tim concert. Over all I think the show can be summed up by saying "The phrase of the night is: meat sweat".

We drove 600 miles to see this show. What I saw of it was awesome. I missed about 45 minutes because I was too stupid to realize a time change from MO to IN!! My wife missed the whole show looking for our hotel. I noticed they were filming. Will a video be available? I hope so. Long Black Veil is one of her favs. I would love for her to see it.

This was an awsome performance, even though Dave's voice was not 100%. He and Tim jammed a little extra for the cameras, and the Dave speak was hilarious as usual. Anyone who was fortunate enough to see a show on this tour saw Dave and Tim at their best.

This show was by far the most amazing I have ever been to. The audience just sat there, stunned, as Dave and Tim performed one of the most amazing sessions of all time. Plus, after the show, I got to shake Dave's hand. If that does not give testimony to how intimate this show was, nothing does!!
