This show was pretty good. He did some of his new songs not yet released but people didn't really appreciate them too much. He should have did gravedigger though. I've seen him 5 times but i've yet to see him do all along the watchtower. This concert was alright but not one of his best i rate it 3 out of 5

Dave was amazing! The Jam session at the end of Rapunzel blew me out of my seat.. I was impressed with his newer songs, they seem like they are going to be compiled into a good CD! The show was electric, but some of the fans need to settle down a bit, a lot of negativity spreads when people are drunk! Eat! Drink! and Be Merry! Maybe even burn one if you like... but keep it cool guys, no need for such hostile action in a loving enviroment!

I am interested to see what the younger crowd thought of this show, not much from Crowded, so I expect many would think this was an average show, but it wasn't. DMB jumped back to the early 90's with BOWA, Warehouse, OSW, Help Myself, R&R and an Ants finish. I can see the complaints about energy, but I disagree. I don't think there was a lack of energy, I just think after 13-14 years this band is in a different place. A better place. There isn't a more talented 5 piece from top to bottom. It's a privilege just to be there. The highlights for me were Crush, Warehouse, OSW and Help Myself, but Rapunzel was unbelievable. Carter was fantastic on that one. Tired of hearing the digs on Everyday. Some guy almost busted a blood vessel yelling for Two Step all night. Is Pittsburgh the only venue that has to hear that song every show? I yelled for Free Bird but they didn't play it, boy was I pissed. Some of these people just don't get it.....

The set list was pretty standard. New songs sound good especially Joy Ride and Hello Again. It was great hearing BOWA havent heard it since 2001. A lot of crazy drunk people im all about partying but you have to chill.

My 11th DMB show. My wife's second, she still hates DMB! My dad's 74th birthday. This show began a pattern of BOWA openers and Ants closers for me.

User: dirwin
Review:
Very solid show from top to bottom...everything flowed well, and I'd change very little about the setlist at all. It's hard to pick my favorite highlights from this one. No single song jumps out as particularly amazing, but the Ants Marching closer was a nice treat. BOWA->Granny was a cool intro and the show just went uphill from there. I could live without Sugar Will, but the other 3 new songs were fun. The folks in front of us thought Help Myself was a new song as well and I had to explain to them that it's been around since '92 =) . Overall a really good set and a really fun Saturday night.

Amazing set. New songs are awesome. The crowd was probably the worst of the 13 shows I've seen, but the set was excellent. The band was definitely on.

Amazing show, the band played to perfection it was flawless

User: dsm02c
Review:
Maybe the worst moments in my life happened at the begining of the show. My friend fell and tripped walking into the venue, bleeding from the knee we went back to the car to fix it. Then I heard BOWA walking into the venue wanting to cry, its the one song I really wana hear. Going to the Gorge in '05 to possibly hear that one, you cant have everything but the rest of the show was amazing. Thank you dave.

this show was great. although i would have loved to do both nights at star lake, but other then that, with the bowa opener and the bridge, it was a real solid show...

Great show, wish i could've stayed for the second, set-list looked better, but still had a great time

User: FpotusSCB
Review:
Great show. DDTW is, in my opinion, the best opener out there, but BOWA was crazy and great to hear. The band had tons of energy throughout the night. I can already hear all of the new songs coming along nicely. Hello Again is going to be a classic real soon and I'd love to see that as an opener or closer - it's just too bad that it's too new to do that just yet. Joy Ride sounded really great too, but some work still needs to be done on Sugar Will especially. Dave was having a blast all night long dancing around and he seemed particulary excited to shake his ass around - don't know what was up with that. It was nice to hear OSW without the intro and this Rapunzel was absolutely out of hand. They pulled out an extra long extra strong jam and this is by far the best Rapunzel I've ever heard. Great encore too with the crowd all over Everday and Ants. Crowd wanted Two Step bad pulling for it all night long, but no such luck...soon though I would think

I flew from Birmingham, UK, for these two shows, which were my first. Met some great people and had the time of my life. Night one, the band was tight, boyd especially was on top form, and in great tune. Dave's voice was perfect. One Sweet World was nice to hear. But as for night two...!

We went camping that weekend to see both shows (even though we live about 40 minutes away). Which was so worth it. Both shows rocked like hell! DMB's energy was the highest that I've ever seen it. Their new songs are insane! And overall, they were completely amazing!

Great show....1st time in about 6 months to see the boys. Got "picked up" in a limo with 4 girls which started the night off right. Dave danced like crazy during Rapunzel which was fantastic. Toked with Token a bit and bought too many souvenir beers. One Sweet World got us into the mood the most. All 4 new songs are amazing.

Great show. BOWA was amazing opener. Crazy-Easy lyrics were SO positive and uplifting... hope something similar ends up on the CD. Ants Marching finale was my favorite concert moment of the summer. People were just spilling out of the aisles and dancing everywhere!

very nice show. liked all the new songs except sugar will. it was a little slow without any really good lyrics or jam. Joy Ride is a great song-lots of energy. the jam on repunzel was amazing. It seemed to go on forever. solid show from beginning to end-excited for tomorrow night.

User: Josh99

Very solid show with some great highlights. BOWA opener was amazing, and the pace kept going with Granny, Crush and Hello Again, which is turning out to be great live. Sugar Will dragged out way too long, which was the low point of the show, but Joy Ride and Crazy-Easy were both great. The end of the show was great, with the SMTS>ASTB>PNP>Rapunzel closer and a very, very cool Everyday>Ants closer. Ants may have been the best song of the night actually.

The show was awesome! my first it may have been, and so i dont really have a standard to go by, but i have been a huge dave fan for years. loved the set list and the new songs as well. I loved Sugar Will, i thought it was a great jam with a great laid back, smooth groove. I'm counting down the days till next year hopin' to get some better seats.

Over a year later as I finally get around to posting this review, all I can remember was that I was drunk off of my ass because my grandmother had just died. Apparently I almost got in a fight. Sorry to whoever I pissed off. I do remember singing my ass off to every song though.

This was a really good show. Opener of BOWA was amazing. One song I really wanted to hear was this and I did!!! Help Myself was tight. The new songs are amazing! Very addicting and I was hooked the first time I heard them. I love the country tune of Hello Again and Joyride and Crazy-easy are fabulous in more ways than one live. The Sugarwill jam was great. Closer was awesome with the So Much To Say->ASTB-> PNP->Rapunzel. The crowd went nuts when they did the segue. The encore included a great version of Everyday with #36 intro and outro. Dave sang the 'standing in the corner' line from #36 and the crowd went insane! Ants had the Carter drum intro, which has been reintroduced since last year and it was a great way to end the show. It dragged a little in the middle but overall it was a great show!

The security at this place was so shady. Keller opened and he was awesome. I only wish more people were there to appreciate him. Dave made it all alright. Crush and so much to say into too much were the highlights, and cured my girlfriend's migraine.

I thought that the show was too short. Then I checked the setlist and realized that I missed the first five songs. I was too busy drinking in the parking lot. I guess I can't complain that the show was too short. I'll just change my complaint and say that they started too early.

Even after a two-hour traffic jam getting in (causing us to miss opener Keller Williams, who I really wanted to see), a bladder that was near bursting, a $10 fee to park, security that searched every orifice, and a substantially more obnoxious lot than usual, it was a great show. "Best of What's Around" was a first for me, and a great opener. Boyd was in rare form, really playing the crowd and getting down with Stefan. "When the World Ends" realy needs to be retired, or at least put into lighter rotation. I don't think I've seen a show in the last 3 years where they haven't played it. The biggest treat, though, was SMTS->PNP->Rapunzel. During the bridge, I assumed they'd go into "Too Much," but something told me to hold off writing that one down. I'm glad I did. Great way to end the show. The new songs were really cool, too. I don't really remember which was which, but one had a sort of country feel, but then got really intense during the chorus. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a "new direction," but they're definitely treading some new trails here. All the band members seemed to enjoy the new tunes as well, as evidenced by Carter shaking his fist at the end of "Crazy-Easy." Can't wait for Blossom tonight!

I loved this show. Especially after a disappointing crowd in Columbus in '03. Burgettstown crowd was great. My first Granny and Help Myself. Couldn't fully appreciate Sugar Will, Joyride, Crazy Eazy, or Hello Again tho. Now I'd kill for those. Thought Everyday was going to be the last song, I would have been disappointed if it was. The crowd lifted off when they played Ants after. Great night, great crowd. and played my favorite, Warehouse too.
