It was a great show. There was a perfect mix of new songs and good old songs. Tim's solo during every song was amazing. Warehouse, Crush, and The Maker in one show was perfect.

Wet, Rain, and an awesome thunderstorm made tailgating a little difficult, but I can have a great time anywhere. Loved Funny the way it is and I see this song being a tour fav for some time. Nancies, Cornbread, Grey Street were of my favorites of the night. The encore with Watchtower brough a Zeppelin riff from stariway to heaven. What a awesome touch. Phrase of the show, "You got Weed?"

This show was simply amazing! The guys had a great energy that night and you could tell they were really into the music. The new songs were great and had a ton of energy. "Why I Am" stood out to me the most, but "Funny the way..." was a great performance as well. The version of "Crush" that we got was absolutely ridiculous!!! Amazing back and forth solos from Jeff and Tim. My girl had never seen "Watchtower" before so it was very cool that she got to see that!

OOOhhhhh...and the best part...I caught my 3RD Carter drumstick and it was just amazing. I know how to do it everytime now and I would like to feel like Carter recognizes...but I wont go that far! I LOVE YOU CARTER BEAUFORD!!!!

No tailgaiting due to the huge thunderstorm. I really thought they might cancel the show. Bartender opener was great and fit the mood, with the amazing Jeff pennywhistle outro. Crush was really amazing with a Tim & Jeff duel that went on and on. Midset Maker was a nice surprise. The new songs all sounded great. Tim's solos were all great. Boyd's solo on Nancies was awesome. The show finished strong with Ants & Watchtower in the rain. Everyone was muddy and dancing in the lawn. The place was packed considering the rainy night.

I was a little scared that this one might be canceled. Had to mostly pregame in the car but we got the show in and thats all that matters. Highlights were Crush, Nancies, and Warhouse. Encore was killer too. I was a little disspointed that we didn't get Rye Whiskey or Beachball. This was my 21st show so I always hope to hear songs that I havent heard before live. I didn't get any new ones this show but I cant complain because thats the first time in a while. All in all good show.

Great Show. Sixth time to see them and they keep getting better and better. The Tim Reynolds/Jeff Coffin solo during Crush was AMAZING! Looking forward to seein them again in October.

3rd show for me and the best. The band was in a lively mood, from Fonzie humping his bass on Bartender, to Dave's dancing, to the Crush duel, to Boyd tearing it up in the latter part of the show. Greatness.

Much better energy than Houston. Huge rain/thunderstorm that made the concert questionable. Let up right before but continued throughout.

The boys were on tonight. The storms and rain just added to the ambiance. The new stuff is amazing- Why I Am and Funny the Way It Is are incredible. Crush was insane- watching Jeff and Tim duel on that was one of the highlights. I was hoping for a couple of songs that I had not seen... but then there's always the next show. Oh, and Jeff earned his keep with his solo on The Maker. Just Beautiful. Overall, great show.

Great show and great crowd. Even the weather seemed to respond to the energy in that amphitheater. The more they rocked, the more the thunder rolled and the rain came down.

Luckily, we all knew how to dance.

Great Show. Funny the way it is - Excellent Live. Good YMDT Jam. Awesome Jeff - Tim battle on Crush with Carter wrapping it up. Started Strong and ended better with powerful Ants and Watchtower. Worth battling the storms.

I thought they sounded fantastic tonight. Boyd's solos were all impeccable. Encore was fantastic with the rain starting up again, Ants jam and Tim in Watchtower were great. Plus Warehouse live is always fun.

NEVER get stuck in traffic on the way to Superpages...the traffic was horrible as we were one of the last people to get inside. Missed half the damn concert and had 10th row center. I will give a word of advice, never take getting to a show on time lightly. The good thing was that the end of the show was amazing and I decided because I missed half the concert to buy a plane ticket and rent a car for the Gorge right after the show was over. Gorge for 3 nights! Here I come...I wonder if the Gorge this year will top Berkeley's 3 nights last year. We shall see. Amazing Watchtower!

The show was excellent compared to the weather circumstances. Was worried they may cancel the show but did not happen. The new songs were wonderful and looking forward to the new album even more now. The only bad news about the show besides the weather was that they only played 17 songs when they usually average 18.

First true t-gate experience in Tejas (me home state).
Got to the venue early, chilled out, downpour.

Jamming out to Bartender...when we left the car...walked in on Bartender.

Awesome set, teased us w/Nancies -- so b/ass!!

Best time in Dallas yet -- looking to improve upon it next time.

Great show! It was pouring rain for most of the night. Bartender was a fantastic opener, and the band went on a great run for the last 5 or so songs. The encore was great with Ants then Watchtower.

Great Set List, a little slow to start but got going fast after that. Funny the way it is and Why I Am are great live and spaceman is not bad. Ants Watchtower encore was amazing especially ants jam.
