Still convinced the rest on the band was ready for Ants but Dave called it off because he was tiredof getting hit with glow sticks. Knock that shit off knuckleheads!

Best encore I have seen. I bet Ants got scratched from the set and was replaced by Halloween. You could tell because Carter had to count them in.

Arguably my most memorable show of all time. Fantastic start to finish. First Halloween in 10+ years of seeing the band and couldn't have happened at a better place. Raven, Halloween, Good Times Bad Times, Seek Up, Warehouse, Granny, Watchtower...really can't top it from my perspective. Perfect end to a wonderful weekend.

Just...freaking...wow. Say Goodbye's intro (the whole damn thing!)was amazing, so was Raven, Granny, LIOG--I was disappointed at first when he didn't finish the song, I dislike that!--and then he totally brought it back!!! And all right before...HALLOWEEN! Been going since '98, and finally on #23 I got to see my first :) Perfect DMB weekend overall!

No Ants, no Stone, no Idea of You, but Halloween and Everyday, as well as all the other songs, make up well for the lack of anticipated staples. Great show.

Once again...the fans threw glow sticks at Dave. Need to knock that shit off...

AWESOME SHOW!!! I got 4 of my top 7 songs in one setlist (Seek Up, Say Goodbye, Warehouse, and Halloween...the others as of the moment are Spoon, Nancies, and Last Stop).

This was the first night I realized we could get inside the front barrier...left the D&T show halfway through Eh Hee to get in there and it was worth it (even though we heard Nancies in the distance as we walked). It's the closest I've ever been for a show and was unbelievable to watch the band interact. I'm so grateful they played Halloween...have been after that one for years now!

Raven was a nice treat, and Loving Wings was a hell of a lot better than I remember it being from 2004. Also was nice they didn't go into WAYG afterwards.

The encore was the best I've ever seen...LIOG Reprise was sweet to finally see live (doesn't happen as often as I thought after going through the tour archives).

The glow stick snake was amazing too...it was neat Dave saw it and commented "See what you all can do when you work together" at the start of the encore. Too bad it never got connected in a circle...that would have been awesome. I wonder if we got Halloween because of the crowd's work on that? I'm pretty sure Dave called it on the fly because Carter had to count them in...

Also ran into some of our friends after the show we met on night one and partied it up some. We'll be back next year!

So many last songs played here tonight-- if you didnt think this was one of the best shows, you expect too much. Lets see, they normally finish with: Everyday, Warehouse, LIOG, Watchtower, Halloween and Thank You-- and you got all of them tonight-- pretty amazing. Dave dancing during thank you, LIOG, Outro to Halloween, Baby Blue-- all moments I will think about forever.

Flew up from Kentucky for my 3rd show ever. Way better than I could have ever expected. The jams were amazing and the set was awesome as well. The crowd made the entire show even that much better. Can't Wait for next year!

Great closing night! Opening Everyday at sunset was perfect, excellent version of Blackjack, and the rest of the show was nothing shy of perfect. Not sure if skipping Ants this weekend was an accident, but I can't complain, a weekend at the Gorge by itself will make for one of the best shows you've ever been to! Will be back 2012... definitely!

Just getting chills reminiscing the final arrival of Halloween at the gorge into thank you. Thank you for letting me be myself again! One of my all time favorite labordave weekends. All of the shows were open, no reserved, no pits. It was open to everyone and if you wanted a good spot it was up to you to put in the effort early on in the day, to respect the artist, and to make your experience!

Say goodbye intro was out of this world. Seek up, loving wings, blackjack, and LIOG were also . Kick ass version of watchtower to close the first leg of the show (I LOVE stefan's new intro). Awesome encore I just wish they played one more song after Thank You! Can't wait for the new york show.

As opposed to the previous night, this show was a bit erratic but everything came together for a great show! That Seek Up with the sunset was beautiful. Raven is always a highlight, and Dave was right on with Halloween. Thank you was a bit of a disappointment, but the show was still a success.

Was show #24 for myself. Fri. was very very slow, saturday was also slow, minus Cortez and #27. Thank god, my all time favorite, Halloween saved it, been waiting all 24 shows for it. My buddy right next to me caught Carter's drumstick highlighting the moment even more. Overall, the crowd just seemed as quiet as it has ever been for me. Any show is better then no show at all, but all shows just seemed really slow, with little great runs of songs put together. You can't win them all.

great energy all night long. first halloween in 30 shows. dave dance during thank you was so funny. would have liked something like jtr for the opener instead of everyday. also throw in a minarets, dreaming tree or typical situation or grace is gone over gravedigger. possibly ants instead of watchtower and last stop instead of thank you. that would have made it a top three show for me, i know i have been spoiled over the years. having my daughter with me made it an evening full of good memories

The #36 intro was great. I always will miss hearing that song solely, as now it will always be Everyday. I hope to one day hear #36...JUST #36 again. The drum intro with flute in Say Goodbye was amazing as well. Loving Wings was a rare addition to hear as well, especially hearing the Good Times Bad Times cover followed by the rare Blackjack! The main highlight was Thank You, which went on forver and was played amazingly as usual. Dave even got to wear a cowboy hat and glasses for part of it! Overall a great show.

A wonderful night three! From the opener of Everyday til the encore closer Thank You, this show and band did not disappoint. The crowd was very into this show. Very few people left the floor or lawn during the encore break. The crowd got into Thank You with the help of Dave and his hat. The LIOG reprise in the encore was perfect. Baby Blue was a treat. Raven rocked. This show was as close to perfect as possible. Only thing missing was Ants Marching.

Wow. One of my favorite DMB memories ever. Got up to front row on Boyds side somehow. Such a great show with so much energy. Lie In Our Graves jam will probably be the most vivid memory I have of my first trip to the Gorge...I dont think you can get anymore of a DMB love feeling than that. Also, the glow stick snake going through the crowd is hard to put into words. I remember hoping for Captain, but after I listened to the AC and Chicago tapes, I realized that Captain sounds like crap these days...much happier with the songs we got instead.

back to back all-time fav shows. only reason Sat ties was the walk-ons. better set list; only minor disapp was closer (Thank You) and no Ants! Still, a best show ever - Red rocks N2 was a 9.3 on my log scale - these were 9.5's, in part due to venue - heavenly!

DMB closed the most amazing Gorge weekend EVER. Hell it is the best 3 Dave shows I HAVE EVER SEEN. I felt normal for the first time since my motorcycle accident and finishing with, "Thank you" was as if they all read my mind.
