When he dropped LIOG in the middle, I was remembering Riverbend earlier in the year, and was left waiting for it... until SUNDAY NIGHT ENCORE. That was probably the greatest...

This was a great way to start three nights at the Gorge. The Dreaming Tree as opener! That was awesome. The energy was lacking by the end of the set, but still a great effort from the guys. My first time to the Gorge to see DMB, so it was a great night!

Just one great song after another (not that a bad DMB song exists)...and always breaking it up to keep the crowd guessing, loved it!!

My 3 star rating only has to do with what I've seen already on tour. Maybe teh east coast swing detracted from what the show offered tonight but it was nonetheless a great way to start off a 3 day stand. Dreaming Tree was a great kickoff and Cornbread just gets better and better. 27 is quickly becomming a new favorite. Nice to hear LIOG (wonder when the reprise will be coming!) and TSTJL was much needed!

It was my first DMB show. By being a DMB fan for about 6 years, i never had the opportunity to really experience or understand the most pure way DMB should be experienced. And I now know Jimi Thing is a good track recorded in the studio, but the jam session they had at this show was absolutely AMAZING!

It is hard to say a DMB show was bad ... so this one will be officially rated as pretty good. - Cornbread was Peppy goodness. Dave learned Dreaming Tree all the way through - which was an improvement over last year's Gorge attempt. Rocks! Randolph is a great addition. I am very stoked about N2 and N3 now!

Best friday nite show I've seen at the gorge. Outta control from beginning to end. Reminds me why I make the 20hr drive each year!

My first night ever at the Gorge, and was lucky enough to be front row. They could have played ANYTHING and it would still be one of the best nights ever. I felt like a little kid with this stupid goofy grin on my face all night long and tears rolling down my face. I will never forget such a great start to a great weekend.

Best Friday night at the Gorge show I've ever seen! Opening with The Dreaming Tree set the stage for a great set-list. Grey Street is always a blast. LIOG spanned two nights - they "reprised it" on Sunday. Jimi Thing was awesome. Dave doing Gravedigger solo was powerful. I like "A Dream So Real" - enjoyed hearing it from the campground during the sound check and it was great to hear it during the show.

My 2 1/2 year old enjoyed his 7th show - and was looking forward to his 8th and 9th shows!

Second best show I've seen! (Second to 8.8.03) The Dreaming Tree opener was amazing!

Other Highlights: WTWE, Cornbread, #27, STJL, Eh Hee. Lawlor tore it up on Rhyme and Reason, and Robert Randolph was a nice addition on Stand Up!

I always love the Friday night shows and this was no exception. I loved where our seats were next to the booth. There was tons of room to dance and my seat buddies were awesome.

For the band to opening up with Dreaming Tree was emotional since we had yet to hear it performed live up until then. I really like most of the new songs and in particular Eh Hee, Shotgun, and Corn Bread. Loved hearing The Song That Jane Likes. Gravedigger sent chills down my spine. It's such a powerful song to begin with and the more so hearing it at the Gorge.

We had a great time.

One of the best shows I've been to. Wish Robert Randolph had guested on something other than Stand Up, but it was actually a lot better than I thought it would be when they started off. Dreaming Tree and the Song That Jane Likes...awesome

Lie in our graves...shortened version. But finished during the encore 2 days later, which I guess makes it in fact the longest version...great energy from the crowd as always.

AMAZING is the word I would use to describe the show. What an awesome venue to see your first DMB show at. The opening with Dreaming Tree was perfect...loved every minute of it. And then they played my all time favorite...Grey Street. I drove from North Dakota and it was definetly worth it! I am hoping to see more DMB shows at the Gorge in the future. Absolutely AMAZING!!!

Excellent show. Great Setlist. Another beautiful day at the Gorge. Ran like hell to get to the fence on the terrace. First show for my 6 year old daughter, who really enjoyed herself, especially with hearing her "favourite" song, LIOG and getting the seats she dreamed about the night before. Many of my wife's favs as well, but that's a typical show nowadays. Sure nice to see them get a few guests on stage with Robert Randolph and Joe Lawlor to add some punch. Only had one drunk and passed-out person carried off near us (and landed on my daughter).

Had a really tall guy in front of me with a stupid fuzzy hat on... i mean come on, its a concert, think about it haha Great show though, first night at the gorge, closest seats, first seats in almost 10 yrs for me. Quite the view despite having the horn section blocked by the right speakers and video screens. The filming was so good though that we could always see them when they had solos or whatever.
