5th DMB show and it doesn't have to be said that it was the best. I look at the set list and think in amazement that I got to see that show. The Alpine lawn lived up to it's reputation, a freaking great time.

The highlight of the show for me was ASTB>>Too Much (fake)>>Halloween>>Water/Wine. Getting to hear Spoon was also a treat. And the encore blew all of us away. I hope Two Step ends every show I'm ever at again. Thank you DMB! Thank you Alpine! I'm pissed that I couldn't be there for N2.

Nancies opener!? Seriously!? 1st Halloween, 1st Spoon. With this show I've heard all of BTCS live which is awesome considering that is my favorite album by far. This was a great show, & the first show I've been to that was a release! Also very cool to have my mom here for her first show(s) and Alpine experience.

Overall a good concert, Burning Down the House was cool, good energy, and Spoon! I liked the fact that our Halloween came after ASTB so it's still a little unique from the others that have been played recently. This was my third show this summer after two nights at Deer Creek, and I would rank both of the Deer Creek shows ahead of this one. It just seemed like the energy level was a little low, it got a boost at Burning Down the House but then failed to pick up. Overall still a very good show, just a lot of songs I would rather listen to on a cd or something than hear live.

I usually don't write reviews but I have to say this show (my 16th) may go down as the best show I've ever seen.

I have to say it just looks like the whole band is having a blast on stage this year. I was there for the epic night 2 show in Saratoga and for me Alpine Valley may have topped it.

Holloween! Once he played it at 2 venues in a row I was not holding out much hope for it to make a 3rd appearance but, wow, did it ever.

First time seeing Burning Down the House and it was insane!!

First appearance of Spoon since 2003 and I loved the fact that the crowd seemed to appreciate such a rare song.

And then to follow it up with by far the best version of Eh Hee I have ever heard. I hope I'm not alone in saying I LOVE THIS SONG!

Not to mention the Two Step encore, Nancies, Seek Up and the incredible version of ASTB.

I hope this band never stops touring!

The Boyz jammed their asses off both nights. Good times as always! Met the Virginia peep's for our 6th annual road trek. Could have done without the $426.50 fine. Must be something new. They can take the sting op' snd shove it. As for the shows tho, nothing short of AMAZING both nights! Thanks again DMB! You guys definitely make it worth the travel. This weekend was #52 & 53, and it also was #18 & 19 at Alpine for me. I love it every time more and more. They love this place as you could see by the energy they brought both nights and as always makin' us feel good good good! Thanks for the new memories. DMB is like a fine wine that keeps on getting better with time. We missed Leroi and are still praying for his recovery. Thanks for lettin' us be mice elves on Sunday! DMBJAMZ

My first Dave show ever, and the best concert I have seen to this date. The moment they let Carter and Tim go crazy in the encore Two Step I knew that I would go to every Dave concert I could from then on. He plays the Valley with so much passion you can't help but be in awe of what you just saw. I highly recommend for anyone who is a Dave fan to go to this venue if you ever get a chance.

7th show. Front Row! Top 3 setlist. Top 2 energy. Overall experience: Number 1! A setlist full of a number of rare classics. The best energy of the night was on Burning Down The House. The hype of Halloween certainly didn't dissappoint. Full of energy. Spoon was great. A decent performance on Seek Up. Money was better than I expected. Out of My Hands with Dave on Piano was worse than I expected, but still good. And of course Ants to close the set. Great Encore. At one point was within inches of getting both the setlist and two of Carter's sticks. Awesome show. Thanks for the ticket Paz. Thanks for the night DMB.

This is by far I think the best show of the tour. First "Spoon" in 5 years and it was awesome - one of those performaces that made me a bigger fan of the song. "Halloween" was packed with energy, and once again DMB impresses me with how they pull off covers in "Burning Down the House" and "Money".

Pretty chilled show which was nice. 19th show for me and I would rank it 6. Glad I finally got to hear Halloween and Spoon. Highlight of the night was ASTB-->Too Much fake--> Halloween--> Water wine reprise. The lawn was awful where I was. I saw at least 4 fights and people were passed out all around me. Glad the warehouse gave me seats for tonight the show should be a good one tonight!

I am not exactly sure what to say here except......FUCKING HALLOWEEN! Son of a bitch. I was already blown away that Spoon was played, and I have always thought it would take a lot more than 19 shows to hear Halloween, if at all. The 2008 St. Louis show rivals this, but I am going to say this night at Alpine is my favorite show I have been to. The energy was high and the setlist looks like it should have been played on night two. The show was practically perfect from the setlist to the covers to the encore. Simply amazing. It is difficult to put into words as many of you know. Just incredible.

Simply a great show. Never been to Alpine before, and if this was not considered high-energy, I don't know what is. I thought they all blew each song away. We've seen the band dozens of times, but this was absolutely one of the top 5. I cannot imagine how N2 will top it.

My best show setlist-wise. Everything was amazing. Halloween coming out of a astb-too much intro? Blew me away. Much better then the everyday versions in my opinion. Spoon is my favorite DMB song, hearing it after such a long hiatus live was sheer beauty. The whole show Jeff and Tim were freestyling, just awesome. An amazing weekend to spend with my lifelong friend before we head off the college.

I want to cremate a monkey and put it inside my piano.

This was an amazing show! My 17th. My favorite of the night was Crush but that is probably because my boyfriend proposed to me during it. Amazing to see Burning Down the House! So much fun. Great job Guys. RIP Mr. Moore my thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends.

Simply unbelievable show. No doubt my favorite show of all 7 I have been to. The whole band was spot on from beginning to end. Everyone had amazing jams going on. It was truly a special show, particularly the closing 4 songs and ending with an amazing Two Step, unreal!!! One of those nights where you wish they would play for another 3 hours.

The show absolutely blew my mind. Crazy setlist and incrediable energy. Had to move back in the lawn because of too many stupid drunks.

My first Haloween and Spoon ever and the band knocked my socks off.

Here's to you LeRoi, you are my musical hero and I hope there is a great band up there for you.

I only go to shows in the Chicago/Wisconsin area, so for me, Halloween was a BIG welcome surprise, especially after ASTB. Spoon, while rare, isn't my fav. Rest of the show was pretty good.
