Amazing show. Dave amazes me with every chord he plays, and Boyd was on fire.

UNBELIEVABLE! This show was AMAZING!!! Dancing Nancies as an encore couldn't have been more intense or fun! I had a blast at this show. Possibly the best DMB show i've seen yet!

Great show he went on for an extra half hour or so and was awsome. The best show i have seen

User: crazyfrog
Review:
un-effing-beleiveable! the band had such amazing energy and enthusiasm tonight. they jammed on jimi thing, two step, nancies and stay like i haven't heard before. Dave was scatting and doing his passionate scream a lot (as in Don't Drink the Water). Boyd and carter too seemed to be on top of the world. Stefan did a great intro to grace is gone and Leroi had some standour moments too. Butch really worked the keys in Two Step brilliantly. if god can be experienced through music, then I felt it's presence tonight!

My first DMB concert. Could never afford tickets before then. Won tickets from Comcast, I've been to so many since then.

Great show, was glad to hear STJL, Nancies was a pleasant encore surprise and an amazing version and I really love Joy Ride, many say that the music reminds them of Rapunzel, but this version actually reminded me a little more of Grey Street.

Review:
Mildly predictable, but one of my favorite DMB shows (I've been to 9 now.) WWYS->STJL->Too Much was a great way to get the crowd going early, I just wish Sugar Will wasn't in there to mess it up. Don't Drink the Water and Hello again were very well done a few songs later to make up for it, though. Grace is Gone was a real treat. I like the new bluegrass jam a lot, and I think that version has potential to become one of my favorite 5 or so songs out of DMB's catalog. Joy Ride and Thing are also really fun songs, both of which could really grow on me. Jimi Thing was some off the hook scatting and then we got a great Two Step ending to the main set. Nancies was a lot of fun with a decent intro, and Stay makes a good closer, even if he's been doing it a lot. Overall an amazing set with a ton of fun songs. Highlights for me were DDTW, Grace is Gone (!), Jimi Thing, and Nancies.

Best show I've been to yet. Insane tonight. Dave came out old school to introduce Keller (who is incredible). Great setlist, I was so excited to hear STJL. DIDO was unexpected but awesome. 2 Step, for the time of night the tore into it was totally unexpected. Nancies as a full band encore, heck yah, and then into Stay, awesome. The new material in its early stage is great and shows so much potential.

The energy at this show was better then the night before and i thought that that was going to be hard to beat. Amazing setlist, played to perfection and yet again another flawless show from a flawless band the greatest band in the world.

My second ever show (night one was first). I flew in from the UK for these shows and jeez it was worth it. Night 2 was just insane. SJL was a real nice surprise, Joyride was awesome, Two Step debut for the tour and the most unreal dave scat i have ever heard in Jimi Thing (and some nice dancing!). Wow. I will return!

User: GreyStreetOnlin

I was very excited for this show, and was not sure what I was going to get since he had an amazing setlist I missed from the day before. But I was very impressed. I loved the fact that he opened with WWYS and than I heard some Jane, and the end was a very nice way to close out with Two Step leading to nancies and than Stay. Very nice. And the scat by Dave during Jimi Thing was amazing. I love it when Dave is up there just mumbling and bumbling about. Very good show.

This was my first front row experience. I will never forget the lady right beside me at the end of the show got carter's drumsticks and he shook my hand. I loved Good Good Time which I think is the best version ever played. I also was diggin Grace Is Gone with the hoedown outrow it was really jammin, the security in front of the stage were dancing.

Definetely got into a little bit more tonight...We fit about 8 extra people into our section! The scat on Jimi Thing was incredible as usual. First time hearing The Song That Jane Likes, needless to say I was extatic. Got a 5th new song...."Thing." Sounds great just like the others. Great Closers!!

2 great shows. didn't think they could get better than night 1 but the second show was GREAT!! love the new songs. can't believe so many people are bashing sugar will, it has a sweet groove to it and it will only get better. highlights for me was jane and grace. neither of which i have seen before. 2 step, nancies, stay to close the show!!! never would have believed they would play those 3 to end show. thanx guys for a great weekend. i think the band is playing better than they ever have before.

Wow. Front row in the pit. Some of you might remember me... some of my friends in the lawn said they could see me "going crazy" jumping up and down with my "long arms" in the air. My voice is hoarse from yelling so loud and so much. I can't remember a time when my voice has been so bad. Anyways, I had an amazing time. It was only my 4th DMB show, but that doesn't reflect how big of a fan I am. I'm young, thats why I haven't been able to get to many shows. This was my first time hearing a number of songs like Recently, Jimi Thing (well I've heard Jimi Thing, but not with the scat, so I'd count that as an entirely different song), and the one I most enjoyed, Two Step. I just absolutely went crazy. Dancing and singing. Like, I guess it was just bottled up inside me since I hardly ever get to go to DMB shows, but I'm such a huge fan. My seats couldnt have been better, front row in the pit, seats 1 and 2. I could see everyone expressions on their faces. I notice that Dave looked at me once and Stefan smiled at me a few times (I was positioned right in front of where he stood). How amazing is that... to see Two Step for the first time and be front row in the pit for it. That was probably the best night of my life. Hands down.

This was my 6th DMB show, and definitely the best one I've seen. Timing couldn't have been better either, since I lucked out with 6th row seats for this one. The energy was flowing and there was tons of jamming. STJL, Nancies, DDTW, GIG, DIDO, Thing were all highlights, and then we got to the amazing part. Jimi Thing was INSANE! It was the best thing I've ever seen live. Dave was going insane throughout the whole thing, and it seemed like he and the crowd kept feeding off each other. At this point, it seemed like the show was running late as it was getting close to 11pm, which is why the closer was so unbelievably unexpected - a full long Two Step with unbelievable jamming from Butch and Carter. Went on for more than 15 minutes and was unbelievable. But the most surprising moment of the night was when Nancies opened up the encore. This was probably the best Nancies I've ever heard out of any recording, Boyd tore it up. All in all a great day leading up to the show, and an absolutely unbelievable show to end an incredible weekend in Pittsburgh!

This show was the first DMB Show I had seen since '95. I was only fifteen then, too plus I was working for small local newspaper and I really didn't get to enjoy that show. This one however was great. The Set list was good, the new songs were great as well. I just loved everything about the night.

My very first DMB show ever! Have to thank my x-girlfriend though for making me to go (thanks Hayley). And we were just going to go and get lawn tickets, but when I went up to the ticket window, I asked if they had any other tickets available. For somewhere around 50 bucks, we ended up 7-rows back (first row behind the folding chairs). My girlfriend could not believe how we ended up that close and was just going nuts. Me, not yet being a fan and a first timer didn't know what the big deal was. Fast forward a few years, and I now know what all the hype was about. If it wasn't for that intimate of a performance, I may still be in the closet. Well here I am! Maybe even a bigger fan than she is now. Haha Hayley!

Holy Shit! This show topped the night before in so many ways! The crowd was insane with major energy. The band was on fire tonight jamming out everything! STJL was so amazing. I have really wanted to see that but didn't expect it at all! Then they played Recently with the River and Pretty Girl outros! I was really hoping to hear those and they were great! Night two of the new stuff was way better than night one. They are really jamming the songs out. You can tell they are perfecting them everyday they play. Crazy-Easy the second night was out-of-this-world good! The steel-lap intro to GIG was amazing! Great Job Stefan! DIDO was unexpected and everyone went nuts! Jimi Thing was tight! The scat was so long and Dave was going crazy up there. He was dancing and scatting like crazy. Carter actually stood up after he finished and was going nuts too! The crowd loved it. The unexpected Two Step closer was superb! They played the first three notes and it was on. Butch had a great solo and so did Leroi. The encore was Nancies, which had a great Dave rambling intro about something, which I will figure out when I download the show. They went right into Stay, which finished the night to make it a perfect show! The band pulled out all the stops tonight! They jammed every song and the energy on stage was felt through out PGP! The crowd was amazing! Anyone that missed this show really missed out!

Night #2 was just as fun as night #1. Hello Again and Joy Ride were great, as I was introduced to the songs the night before. Anyone else notice that Dave didn't say "paris" but instead said "pennsylvania" on Dancing Nancies? All other shows he does DN he always says Paris. I feel like that was a blessing. Loved it!

Great show. The band went long, which is greatly appreciated. Right up there with 08.03.02 at Star Lake as my favorite. The set rocked, and the band was full of energy. Highlights were definitely the bluegrass outro to Grace, the Jimi scat, and of course Two Step. The new songs are great, Hello Again and Joyride being my favs. Sugar Will has potential but seems to be missing something. I think it will come together over the summer. The encore rocked. I'll take Butch on Stay over the Lovely Ladies any day. Get a copy of this show.

Wow, so much better than Night 1. One of the few Nancies and Two Steps of the tour. Energy was awesome, as I was about 15 rows from the stage. First ever Drive in Drive out, and the GIG outro was also a nice treat. Also loved Recently with the pretty girl outro. Had an awesome time !

This was my first Dave show and it was amazing. I walked away stunned. It was the best experience ever. Everything was spectacular, but two step, the skat, and one of his new songs towards the end were my favorite (the one dmband.com calls "hmm?"). I can't wait until I see them again.

User: typicaljimi
Review:
My first show. It was a great one too. Started it off with What Would You Say the The Song That Jane Likes. Too Much was sweet and Recently was great to hear. Sugar Will sounds like it will be awesome. If I had it all and DDTW were amazing. Dave was really on target tonight with the vocals. Hello Again was cool. DIDO was full of energy. GIG set the mood perfectly. Joyride and good good time were the best new ones. Fool To Think rocked with Butch on the keys. Jimi Thing was amazing and some great scat singing was done. Crazy Easy was good. Two step was over 19 minutes long and by far the best I've ever heard it. Just when I thought the night couldn't get any better, they did a stand up encore. Nancies was Boyd's moment to shine and then directly into Stay. What a show!!

Review:
with the exception of Crazy Easy, the new songs are all great. Hello Again's chorus kicks ass, Joy Ride is loads of fun, Sugar Will has a great groove, and Thing is just pretty. DDTW, DIDO, Jimi Thing, and Two Step were some highlights. Even though Stay was great, I wish they'd give it a rest in the encores. They can play it to close the set, but when the band comes out for an encore, I want to be guessing what they're playing. I don't want to think, "Oh, here comes Stay", especially since they didn't play it in the encore the previous night. All in all , however, it was a great time. Great venue, too.

User: warehouse999

Strong show tonight. Jane and Recently were great and they busted out Two Step for the first time this tour tonight......

User: werkinsnake
Review:
The best show I've personally seen yet. The return of Recently was a great surprise. I fell in love with Hello Again even before the drum solo was added later in the summer. I've heard damn near all of the Jimi scats for this year, and I still stand by my saying that this was the best of the summer. No politics, no intended humor, just Dave, the band, and some freakin scary scat. No doubt that Dave was inspired by Keller Williams who opened for the show. Fenton Williams also did a particularly fantastic job with the lights this night. It will be hard to top this next year.

THIS SHOW WAS ALL ABOUT THE ENERGY. JIMI THING WAS OFF THE HOOK ALONG WITH THE CRAZY SCAT HE PUT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. DAVE WAS SO PUMPED MY FRIENDS AND I THOUGHT HE REALLY WANTED US TO STAY AS IF HE WAS COMING BACK OUT.
