Left a lot to be desired setlistwise for tonight

On a more exciting note, got the pick after watchtower!

Great energy but the set list was kind of bland, especially for how huge of a show it was supposed to be. Best was probably "lying in the hands of god" cause they had a groovy jam going

Solid show, was especially suprised at how great the sound was at Wrigley. Always liked Burning Down the House as a cover so I was happy it made its returned. I feel spoiled this year after just having been to the Gorge 2 weeks ago for 3 great shows.

This was a decent show. A lot more radio friendly than I had expected, I mean come on, Shake Me AND Funny in one show this late in the tour? One Sweet World was a cool opener, Burning Down The House was wicked, and Watchtower ruled. This show was a solid B-

I mean, Wrigley Field, amazing, plus Jason Mraz opening, who could ask for anything more? It really was a fantastic experience although I would have to say that the show really didn't seem THAT strong. OSW was a nice opener, then PNP>Rapunzel was a delight as always. Burning Down the House was the biggie of the night I guess but I'm not particularly a big fan. The jams just seemed a little shorter, perhaps it was just me. Everything seemed trimmed, strange. Doesn't get any better than DMB though.

This is not a good venue for a concert. Not enough restrooms for a crowd of this size, and you can't move through the halls. The sound was awful from my seat. Way too much Groo Grux for my tastes. Maybe I expected too much.

The second night was even better. Great setlist and the band jammed like no other. Jimi thing with no lyrics was fantastic. Carters drum solo in Two Step was insane. 3 song encore with the Last Stop as the closer was out of this world!

How can you not rate a show a 5 when you are front row center and made the picture book in the live album (not to mention the historic venue and running out of the ivy to grab a rail spot. "Write A Song" , "Burning Down The House", "You & Me" and "Watchtower" were personal favorites of the show.

If they would have only answered the sign I had with "True Reflections"

This may have been the luckiest endeavor of my life. On the inital day that tickets went on sale I woke up bright and early, credit card ready; Tickets.com didn't send through my order and I was nearly suicidal because they sold out. I was depressed for most of the summer [I'm not embarrassed]. Then, the DAY before the friday show, I felt brave enough to check stubhub and I found two reasonable tix for me and my friend in the seats we wanted! BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE.

O.K. - Here's my opinion - First, we does everyone seem to say 'not a great setlist' - I love DMB, but they don't really seem to venture to far from the staple songs. Second, DMB fanbase is getting drunker and drunker. Third, Dave writes a great lyrical song - so QUIT SINGING THE WRONG WORDS! As for my review, I thought the second night show at Deer Creek was the worst show I have ever seen him perform. He totally redeemed themselves tonight - I love the old school openers - 'One Sweet World' and then 'Rapunzel' - they could do that every show - and the end was great - I thought they were going to end with 'Don't Drink the Water' and then did a couple more. Even though I am sick of 'Watchtower' the 'Stairway' section was sick! This was not a slow show unless you were in a slow mood.

Band was as tight as ever. Setlist was cookie cutter DMB (maybe because it's rumored that this show will be a DVD release next year?). Overall the crowd was very knowledgeable and not overly drunk and obnoxious. Not shutting off the lights underneath the upper deck was awful and the sound was equally as bad, at least from that vantage point (but it's not a music theater either).

Overall a good show. The biggest standout for me was the "Stairway to Heaven" interlude in Watchtower. It's always nice to hear a little Led Zeppelin thrown it.

One Sweet World and PNP > Rapunzel opener?!? Yes, please! The setlist was an up and down all evening. Got a lot of first songs Friday night but it seemed like a lot of the songs were a little out of place or just being played to get out of the way. Either way I had a great time. Only complaint was the acoustics in the upper deck were AWFUL! I couldn't hear any Davespeak or quiet songs. All I could hear was people talking. Not to mention they left the lights on up there! Oh well, great show.
