Best show all weekend by far. Kept me on my toes all night long. Thank you once again Dave Matthews Band for an unforgettable Labor Dave Weekend!! See you in 2012. :)

Almanac - "This is the first ever three-night run of full-length shows with no repeats. The only other time it has happened is when the band opened for the Grateful Dead in 1995, which were short sets." Freaking awesome. Minarets opener was the shit. I Did it (although not the strongest song lyrically) came out of nowhere. I just loved being surprised when a song is absent & makes a return while I'm there haha. Cool set overall and loved the encore w/Blackjack & a fitting Stay (Wasting Time) to end the weekend since I wish we could stay longer.

A very mellow set list. The lawn crowd was very tame and I even saw some sitting down... sad. The band pulled off one hell of a show regardless of the amount of mellow slower songs. I loved hearing Dave on piano and the song Break for It was a treat as was Minarets as the opener. Every show that DMB puts on is unique in its own and this was no different. I thought that this was a good way to end a fantastic weekend that saw NO REPEATS OVER THE COURSE OF THREE DAYS!! Overall a great show and I can't wait until Chicago

Great tunes like Minarets but the show was too mellow overall. Lots of unreleased songs, but not really in the groove like 9/4.

The Goods. Sunday's show was mellow, but all great mellow songs. I heard some people complaining about a slow night at the show. Every song can not be Ants, Tripping Billies, and Watchtower people. The whole weekend was awesome. Friday was all about the setlist, Saturday was all about the energy, and Sunday was all about intimacy. If you love the band, you loved every night, period.

Second fav night at the Gorge in all time. Loved this set. Loved the night. The band was very emotional being that they were unaware they may be back in 2011. I'm glad they did return though. Loved getting a few rarities. Break for it especially was a surprise.

Love this venue, so picture perfect. Don't know how they would finish off the weekend but this was probably my favorite setlist of all. Mellow, well played, old and new blended nicely. Baby blue was my least favorite song on thier last album but after seeing it live at the GORGE cannot stop listening to it. Black Jack is pretty wild too, no idea what he is saying but it sounds great. What amazed me the most was no repeats for 3 straight nights. Was well worth the trip out west and was the perfect end to a perfect weeklong honeymoon in the Pacific Northwest.

Great show of jam tunes. It was clear the boys were having fun and their solos proved it. Many of the fans did not seem to get and appreciate it but I loved that the band was playing for themselves and enjoying the heck out of it!
The show was also a great compliment to the day before. One was short on solos and big on hits. Sunday was about then band and talent and their fun!

Managed to get into the "pit" using a great excuse, which I won't share because I will be using that again.
One of the best shows I have been to band wise-- last night of the Gorge for awhile.

Lying in the Hands of God was fantastic. They teased American Baby Intro towards the end of the long jam they did for it and it worked very well.

could have used a little more excitement on such a cold night. interesting placement of unfamiliar songs. still no repeats and a fabulous way to end the 3 days.

It was a mellow night, but magical nonetheless. I was out in the lawn again, and stupidly missed a lot because there was too much partying during the day… The show had some great moments, but for me there were too many times when there was a lull in energy.
Hearing Bartender, and especially the interpolation for LeRoi, in the beginning of the night reminded me a bit of N3 at Berkeley in 08. I thought I had lost my mind when I heard IDI (I hoped I’d never hear this in concert again!), but I always love hearing YMDT in concert. LITHOG had such an incredibly smooth and chill jam at the end… it just kept going and going and I didn’t want it to stop. Everyday felt really nice after that with all of us singing the chorus to #36, especially that great outro.
OOMH almost put me to sleep, and despite how much I love Seek Up, I was feelin pretty mellow when the opening guitar notes finally started. But for as much as I love this song, it felt like the beginning lacked it’s usual crispness. At least the jam at the end was powerful as usual, though.
It was my first LRB, and by this point I sat down ‘cause after everything I’ve been through this weekend, I just wasn’t feelin it (and by now I was gettin cold). BFI was pretty cool, and it had a mellow funkiness that slowly grew on me. That was a great lead-in to the PNP-->Rapunzel-->Ants closing to the first set, which of course was a blast. Even despite a N3 setlist that wasn’t entirely my style, there wasn’t one repeated song this weekend… how many bands can deliver that to their fans?

Too many slow songs. The lowest-key show I have ever been to. People around me sat down for 2-3 songs in a row, which I have never seen.

Minarets opener was cool and Rapunzel was good too, but I feel like the band was tired after three straight nights of playing and mailed it in. I love seeing shows and I love the songs, but there was very little energy.

Minarets opener into Bartender at the Gorge will always be one of my favorite DMB memories. Not to mention I Did It. It is my husband's favorite DMB song, so he was thrilled to hear it live. The rest of the show was a little low-key for my taste, but after three nights of Gorge fun I could not have been happier.

No repeats in a three day weekend! Pretty spectacular overall. Strange flow to the set, especially with I Did It back in the mix. Not too sure why that was brought out. Was right in the middle for this one. Great show and thought to be my last at the Gorge at the time. So wonderful!

minarets to open was great - closing run was great too. But the middle had no flow and was downright weird.

Stay to close the weekend was a letdown, to be honest.
