Perfect set list... If they dont make this a CD i dont know what else would qualify. You could tell they did this show for the fans.

Absolutely amazing! From set list to energy from the band and the crowd it was the perfect night to the perfect weekend, possibly the best of my life. The show was all I hoped for, N1 was for the old fans, N2 was the hits, and N3 was the jams. Stone, Maker, 41, pig, minarets, LIOG, typical among others were the highlights for me. Drove from Houston Texas 5800 miles round trip... Worth it!

Very rarely do I go to a show that is from start to finish without a dud. Every song played on this night was excellent. Almost every song was a highlight for me. The Stone opened the night (with a small dodo tease, that I honestly didn't notice until looking at the setlist) set the scene for the night. After this great performance of Stone, they kept rolling giving us an awesome Jeff performance on Proudest Monkey, right into Crash into Me, then right into ODH with an awesome jam section. After that 3 song run, the set did not let up at all. Idea of You was a nice treat followed by one of my favorite covers, Talking Head's Burning Down the House (which usually comes later in a set, so a surprise to me at this spot.) Some more throw back to the Crash album here (20th anniversary) with a great #41 > Say Goodbye. The best Rhyme & Reason I've ever seen, extended nearly 12 minutes with electric solos by Joe Lawlor and Tim Reynolds. The Lie in Our Graves that followed was outstanding. Boyds highlight of the night. The Maker was another highlight for me, such a great cover that goes back to the bands roots in the earliest days. This version of the Maker is definitely worth checking out if you haven't already. The band then goes into YMDT, which for me always closes a set. I fully expected the set to end after this energetic version of YMDT, but then they went into to Typical. A huge Typical Situation that built up a frenzy with the horns (Carlos, Rashawn & Jeff) would have been another good way to end the set. But they weren't done yet. All of a sudden they start playing THE closer. Last Stop. I was speechless. This song summed up the whole Gorge experience for me. Although the band hasn't played this song often in recent years, they owned it. They played it flawlessly all the way through, and after the jam slowed down, and Dave started singing the outro of Before these Crowded Streets, I got goosebumps. But they STILL weren't done! As they faded out Last Stop, Carter's iconic snare hit and the crowd immediately knew. Ants Marching. I thought this show was never going to end. After a crazy ending to the set, the double Before these Crowded Streets encore of Pig > Stay was the perfect way to say goodbye to the Gorge.

EPIC night 3. Stone opener was killer. Monkey is always a buzz kill for me, especially at #2, but that\'s one of my only complaints from the whole weekend. Picked the energy back up with Burning Down The House & 41. Say Bye was great with Malta. SDL was a great memory with the crowd singing Thank You in the jam/outro. Rhyme with Lawlor was sick. LIOG/Maker/YMDT/Typical were mind blowing before a Last Stop>Ants closer (I had those two incorrectly pegged in the encore). Pig/Stay encore was truly a blessing. Had to give a hug during Ants to a chick next to me that was bawling. Couldn\'t have asked for a better night 3 to close out 25 years and can\'t wait for the hiatus to end. Bring it, 2018 - or perhaps a caravan LBDay weekend next year??...fingers crossed

AMAZING. The setlist was jam after jam after jam! Hearing Pig for the first time in awhile was wonderful. And, generally, the energy onstage and connection t the crowd was unparalleled.

Unbelievable night! The setlist and the energy from the band were outstanding, proving that they can still bring it 25 years later. Great performances by Malta on Say Goodbye and Lawlor on Rhyme and Reason. Boyd tore it up on LIOG and Ants. The set ending run of Typical > Last Stop > Ants...just epic. The perfect end to a Gorge weekend and the anniversary tour. Best of almost 40 shows I have seen. See you in 2018!

What a set list!!! Some good slow jams, everyone got multiple solos and Boyd killed it all night and on his 2 main solos!! They played where are you going which is our wedding song and we come here every year for our anniversary. 10 years of marriage 21 shows and this weekend was the best of them all. Lawn friday, sat pit, sun seats!! Thank you DMB, see you in 2018 unless you sureprise us in 2017 with a gorge show!

Highlights for me included Idea->BDTH->41->Say Goodbye, LIOG->Maker and is last 5 song run was unreal. Wished there was a double-encore or Dodo or something to unarguably stamp this best show ever. Terrific weekend and can\'t wait for 2018!

Tough to say which of the three nights I enjoyed the most, but Sunday was killer. The Stone opener was the best, the Say Goodbye was awesome with Carlos guesting, and I loved the Last Stop/Ants closer. I had been waiting for 3 full days to hear Pig and at that point, I had about given up. Under my breath, I was saying \\\"pig,pig, pig.\\\" and sure enough! PIG to open the encore!! That made my weekend. I actually liked Dave\\\'s choice of Stay for the last song - it\\\'s absolutely not my favorite, but it totally captured the mood of the crowd and how I was feeling about the entire weekend. Best three night stand of my DMB life.... Please come back quick, guys, I can\\\'t go too long with out you!!!

Could not have left this show any happier, the band played about six of my top ten favorite songs. Has to be a top five show for me. DMB it\\\\\\\'s been a good run over the years and I am sad to see it come to an end. Do us a favor and come back in 2018. Cheers, AB
