Waited 11 hours to get front and center. By far the closest I've ever seen a DMB show. I can't even explain how awesome it was. The english language doesn't have the proper words. Still Water and Water/Wine were a special treat to hear. SMLAM opener blew me away. Two Step and Watchtower closers rocked hard core.

More outdoor shows in Minnesota please! How about Duluth, on the worlds largest freshwater lake?? Had a great time. Loved the Stairway to Heaven/Watchtower closer! Just ten rows back and my closest to date! Thanks dave for another great show!!

A bit shorter than I would've liked, as they were scheduled to play 3 hours, but a solid performance nonetheless. Rashawn looked like he was having some lip pains throughout the show, it looked like he was icing his lip. However, he sounded just fine to me.
Solid show. 4 stars.

Really cool "Stairway to Heaven" teaser going into "All Along the Watchtower". Very appropriate song, being in MN.

First of all, let's talk about Ants, PNP-->Rapunzel, and then Two Step to close the show...wow. I mean, what can you say about that?!? "Holy shit!" maybe? I went to this show with every intention of being mildly disappointed after another great weekend at Alpine, and up until that point, it was just ok. But that was an amazing 3 song finish. Two Step was just filthy. And then I got to go backstage for the encore. I still don't really believe that it happened, but I'm pretty sure I was there on the stage right behind BT. Thank you Chris!

The crowd was fine, not great, not horrible. Just not sure that most of them realized how special that finish was. This is the baddest band in the land, Robert Randolph said it, and he ain't lyin'!

AMAZING show. Watchtower was the most incredible I think I have seen yet. It's evident how much fun the band is really having on this tour and the music definitely represents that.

Good Show. The crowd was so into the music (imo) that i could hear every note of 2step, this was the first time ever for me. People were feeling :)so good that they danced more than they sang lol. Best crowd i have ever seen at a dmb concert, not a bunch of frat boys and 15 year olds just there to drink. Once again thx dmb!

This was my first Dave show and it was life changing. I have always been a fan of Dave, just never had the chance to see him live. Because it was at an outdoor music festival I was able to stand in the front row. To make my first experiece even better, I caught one of Carter's drum sticks after the show. It was a memerable time and I look forward to seeing Dave for many times to come!

dave and the guys did a good job but the atmosphere was a little different because it was a festival. along with the fact that you spent the weekend with a lot of nice people then the night of dave comes along and you have douchebags buying single night tickets and frat boys trying to drown out dave with their own singing. performance-good. crowd... notsogood.

The show went extremely fast; for a second I thought when they ended they were taking an uncommon set break. Watchtower was excellent and it was good to hear Still Water and Water/Wine. Enjoyed hearing the new stuff. Crowd was tolerable at best, in my opinion.

I love seeing DMB at festivals. The crowd represents more of the jam scene and a care free attitude. It was great to have room to dance around for the entire show on the tarmac very close to the band. I may be spoiled having just come from Alpine Valley, but I was expecting a little more from the band. They definitely had some big shoes to fill following 2 nights of Widespread Panic. Friday night Panic brought the heat to another 10K night and just ripped it until they went BOOM! The entire 10K experience was great. I slept for 2 hours on the way home today and another 8 on the couch. There is dirt ground into my feet and memories of DMB and Widespread Panic in my head. Iím so sore from dancing.
Thanks for another great show.

This was my first DMB show - where have I been all my life???? Stuck on classic rock acts, I guess! I was awed and have been hooked ever since!

The band had a great time playing here. Thought the show was great, good setlist... Was down in front in front of Boyd about seven rows back. The sound down there was horrible. The bass was all you could hear. I took some pictures and after seek up moved back and the sound was fabulous in the center, midway back on the floor. Missed hearing one of my favs with all the sounds.

I have to give this show a 5 because I actually got to meet Dave himself!!!!! My sister and I had VIP tickets and we were having dinner and there was a gate that separated our dinner area and the backstage area. There were about 20 people hanging around the gate area so we decided to check it out too. Within about 5 minutes out walked Dave himself! We couldn't believe it! He signed both of our VIP tickets and took some pictures with people too. He was very chill and smiled a bit. He was wearing a grey shirt and jeans. He is so cute!

I stood outside the doors for two hours. At noon got in and ran to the stage. Then I had to sit for 6 hours before Umphreys. It was all worth it. Front and center for DMB was a perfect end to a great festival. The show was absolutely amazing. The crowd down front had a phenomenal vibe.

Great show. Ants - PNP - Rapunzel - Two Step was brilliant. The dmb fans didn't put a damper on the great vibe that the festival had.

Hadn't seen Dave and the boys in awhile. I gotta say I enjoyed myself. loved the 10klf vibe with the show. many highlights, but seeing alligator pie for the first time was great. that song was made to be played live. the best part was that it was the first dmb show for a couple of friends, and they enjoyed it 10x's more than where their expectations were. the boys are back:)

Everyone says that a DMB show will change your life, well I agree! Could not have asked for a better set list! My first Dave concert ended less than 24 hours ago and already I am planing my next! Last, a heartfelt thank you to our new friends from Portland, you made our DMB experience that much more amazing. To all die heart DMB fans, when at a concert look for first timers and guide them. We would have never known about the DMB posters sold at each show and only because of our Portland mentors my 10K DMB poster is a prize possession!

Loved the show. A lot of new tracks played. Shake me to start the show got the crowd going. Spaceman into Corbread, I could listen to that all day! Loved Squirm and Aligator Pie. Carter tore it up in Two Step. Didn't see it in the notes but when they came back for the encore dave 7 or 8 cords of Good Good Time. Great to see the boys back in MN. Hope they return soon!

really had a great time at this show and 10KLF. Great venue, was able to get about 10 to 12 people deep wihout much of a problem. I think the band is on fire this year. Love the new jams and the new songs. They went off on seek up, two step, jimi thing, two step, Watchtower>Stairway>Watchtower. They played everything very solid and looked like they were enjoying themselves.

waited for 8 hours to get good spot for show and was 5 feet away from stage - worth it :) - they played a lot from their new album, but i really enjoyed hearing seek up, jimi thing was awesome, they always get lost in that song, and carter's solo on two step was freakin awesome - overall great show

I'm still trying to get used to some of the songs off the new album, so I would have preferred more of my classic favorites like #41, Crush, and so on. But overall it was still a solid show. The highlights for me were Seek Up, So Damn Lucky, Two Step with an amazing drum solo by Carter, and All Along the Watchtower which broke into Stairway to Heaven.

the sound at 10KLF was lackluster and not having any screens was pretty bogus.
