The best part was that the audience chanting led to the band adding Thank You to the set list.

My 31st DMB show, and it is easily in the top three. #41 was a great start it really got the crowd in the mood and set the tone. New song sounded great. Nice surprises were YNK, and mid set Typical, was anything but typical. I had an awesome Jam. Why I am had a nice intro and I don't love Ehee, but great placement and it also had a great Jam.
SDL was great, and as they were finishing the crowd just started in with "Thank you" for about 5 mins. It looked like Dave had a quick meeting with the band and was like well we kind of have to play it. And they did and the crowd love it. So much so after the song was done, Dave had to ease in You and Me. Thank you was def. Not on the setlist, good work guys.
The rest of the show was filled with Classics, LIOG was awesome 20 min or so. PNP>Rapunzel is always awesome ending.
Encore Dave came out and said he wrote theis song for his wife, and busted out Space Between solo. Not a huge fan but solo was something really special.
A full still Water and a heartfelt DDTW and Dave sent us on our way.
My friend who was not at the show saw the setlist and said, huh average. Maybe on paper but that night was something special. A mix of great song placement, a blue moon, great crowd(everyone around me was awesome ) I was the one with the pint of Jack and lots of...
But also just get Jams. If you get a chance try to find this show.
Thank you guys! You keep me coming back for more.

My buddy fell after the show and took out 5 rows of chairs. I fell asleep sitting on a bucket in the parking lot and woke up to a security guard telling me to get up in an otherwise empty venue.

Our best position at a DMB show yet - 2nd row from the stage - so, of course it was the best show we'd seen. Plus, the setlist was good as well. Nice to make eye contact with Dave and have him make eyes at my wife as well. That's all for this show...

For the opening night of the Gorge you really couldn\\\'t ask for more. Was one of the best Friday shows I have seen at the Gorge since 04, only barely falling behind 2010 simply because he opened with The Last Stop. #41 was a great opener as I really expected it to be Seven or FishTender like the rest of the tour. The flow of the show was right on point with the peak being Typical followed by Grey Street. PNP>Rapunzel was louder than ever and perfect set closer. Still Water was slow but by no means not effective. When DDTW hit the red and yellow lights were the perfect \\\"pick-me-up\\\" that got the crowd rockin once again. I give the show a sold 8.5/10. You aren\\\'t gonna get a better opening night at the Gorge. It had a little something for everyone.

Friday night shows at the Gorge are always on the mello side but this show was strong. Great energwy start with #41, Typical Situation was very nice, Dave on piano and mugging for the camera at the end of Mercy. The full moon/blue moon added to a great environment. I felt like Thank You was not on the original setlist but was played in response to a big push from the croud following the end jam on So Damn Lucky. A great nite sets up the always powerful Saturday Gorge show.

Great show! Starting with #41 was a great idea, it really brought back the old feeling of DMB. Proudest Monkey into Satellite was great to hear too as that is a common mix. One of the highlights of the night was hearing Rashawn and Jeff's horn backgrounds of "Thank You" in So Damn Lucky. The fans began to sing along with them and were messing up occasionally since So Damn has a different time signature than Thank You. Nevertheless, after the song ended the fans continued to sing Thank You, and you could see the Band discussing about possibly playing it. The decision was obvious when Stefan ran to change his bass, plugged in, and began "Thank You" with the loud snap intro. The Encore was great too. Overall a great show.
