I think this was the show when everyone started throwing little glow sticks in the air all at once. The band stood and watched for a couple minutes and looked like they were enjoying it. The Leroi slide show was emotional.

This show was awesome. I got down to the 15th row during O.A.R. and got some great pictures. I am a huge O.A.R. fan and met them that night at a meet and greet and had the drum stick I caught the previous night signed by the entire group. Dave was also great as well. I was very happy with this show. The Dreaming Tree, Hey Hey My My, some favorites. It was great.

9. Really loved this show, came from Cleveland, Ohio and it was my first time at the gorge. The venue and views were amazing. Overall, satisfied with the setlist, really like stay or leave. Hope to be back to the gorge in the near future.

Great night for instrumental music. The set list seemed to be specifically chosen to save Dave Matthew's voice and it did that. The band's early songs of the night seemed to be chosen as tributes to Leroi Moore.

Great Set...I was really into Grey Street and Song That Jane Likes last night.

Could of done without Stolen Away. That song just sucks the energy out of the crowd.

Wow, another GREAT show (which has become the norm on this tour). Outstanding Jimi Thing featuring Tim quoting Jimmy Page's Whole Lotta Love solo, a great Dave scat, and an Average White Band's "Pick Up The Pieces" horn outro. Crush with
the Tim and Jeff duel was OUTSTANDING!!.

Sat in B4. Excellent show! Many sweet songs played. Nice long version of DT to start things off. Stay or Leave was very nicely done IMO. Crowd was receptive and attentive most of the show. I have noticed a little more respect given by fans during 'quieter times' since Leroi's passing. Nice to see.

Best show I've seen in a while, probably my favorite setlist yet! One Sweet World, Hey Hey My My, Crush, Stolen, Two Step, Sister, Out of My Hands . . . all songs I was hoping to hear and I go them all in one show! Spokanedad, I was so glad to see your son onstage with Carter, we were your seat neighbors (to the right) for one song, but had to move since we couldn't see a thing. I'm sure someone will have photos!

The best venue ever, the best sound I've ever heard at any concert. I really thought they'd lose something without Butch, but Tim makes up for it.

This was my 9th DMB show viewed at the Gorge (Going since the summer of 99'):

I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about cheering on the band w/out Leroi in the mix... I hadn't listened to Coffin's stuff.. so...

I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. The dueling improve sessions between Timmy and Jeff were very cool! Hopefully get to see them next year. :-)

Amazing show but, the other's this weekend, it was very sad. I was amazingly lucky to have been blessed with a Meet & Greet before this show and got a chance to meet both Dave AND Carter. Both men are wonderful gentlemen, and my heart goes out to them all.

Our 7th DMB show and by far the best one yet. I think it might go down as the best show I will ever see (of any band). I didn't know how I was going to react since this was the first show for us since LeRoi passed, but I was simply blown away.
Dave had so much goofy energy and the whole band was on fire! Having Tim there really made the show rock a little harder and edgier. The call & answers between Jeff & Tim and Jeff & Rashawn were amazing. What Jeff can do with the sax is just plain sick, dancing and grooving all the while. Pretty much everyone got a solo (except Stefan) in Jimi Thing, which was so cool. The tribute to LeRoi brought tears to my eyes.
My mind was blown.

Awesome night a bit somber, but understandable.... wished i'd been at Friday nights show, but sat and sunday was amazing. The only downside and it shows with SPOKANEDAD's review is that the live nation staff purposely revoked Dave's wishes of cameras allowed in the venue. Every security gaurd made sure we all knew not to bring one in or it would be taken.. Of course mine was safely tucked in a bag with my newly pregnant wife(our little one's first DMB show 8 weeks in the womb). I didn't see any camera's taken away though and of course plenty of snapping went on. I did however see that Sunday night the signs on the regular entrance near the outside box office specificlly had "recording devices and cameras" taped over. So obviously someone let Live Nation know our special arrangement with the greatest band in the world. No one has abused that privilage and i am sure no one will.

The Fans of DMB are the greatest ever, minus a few drunks who kicked my wife as she was lying down for a song or two feeling a bit under the weather(pregnancy does that), but all in all the best bunch of friends I and the Band can ask for.

Now seeing the setlist from Friday night i deeply regret paying my underpaid taxes this year and not getting the friday night show as well, but thanks to recordings i'll get to feel like i was there. All my favorite songs in one night on friday must have been explosive. I'll be there for all three nights next year as i have been in years past. Thanks Dave Matthews Band and the fans.

5th row tickets - $160. Food, drinks and merchandise - $120. Gas to the Gorge - $50. Seeing your son on stage with Carter and getting drumsticks - PRICELESS! I only wish I had my camera. Great show. THANK YOU CARTER!!!!!

2nd best show ever. I'm a guy from Buffalo who lives in DC, so I've been usually going to Darien Lake/Nissan Pavilion, but I gotta say, this Gorge venue is absolutely spectacular--def worth the 2 day trip, once in a lifetime experience. The crowd is so much quieter there though, I like it when people are more into it. The sound was bad, too. Such a great setlist and it was the longest DMB concert I've been to, by far. Jimi Thing was the highlight, and it was cool to have a jam-laden set--save for the emotional beginning. Coffin missed some Leroi parts, but he's an excellent jammer. Leroi's probably better at hitting the notes and is definitely smoother. Very nice tribute at the end.

10th row to the left, so i was in front of tim & boyd the whole time. awesome. loved dreaming tree, stay or leave, two step, jimi thing, PNP >> rapunzel, and a ridiculous tim/jeff jam on crush. i'm so glad i was up close for that. and i'm glad we got a lot of BTCS songs. 10th row, my first gorge show, and a great setlist made this show hard to forget
