Can we even try to compare Chicago to AC?

Forget about night 3's vs night 3's or overall weekends to weekends...

...Can anyone actually put forward a considerable and proper rejection of the following statement:

Atlantic City was a galaxy's worth better than Chicago???

    This thread will not go well. I think AC was better but it was not better by much. And how the hell is AC galaxies better when a ton of the same songs were played at both?

    Re: Can we even try to compare Chicago to AC?

    I wouldn't say that by any means. Unless you were at both,its impossible.

    Chicago venue could have been a bit better,but I had one hell of a blast. Heard all the songs I wanted and N3 was my 30th...couldn't have been better.

    I hate these type of assumptions....

    thread won't go well....people on here actually get personally offended if someone criticizes their show.

    Due to the fact that I have been instructed to forget about entire weekends, I cannot comment on your statement.

    the only people who could have any say in this matter is those who were at both caravans. everything else is speculation based on what they've read on here.

    I think overall, setlist and performance wise, N2 was the best show of the AC weekend

    Opinions are cool. I just really disagree with every part of your statement. Glad you enjoyed it though

    I will never get this obsession with ranking shows and saying "mine was better than yours!!" I think everyone at both the AC and Chicago Caravans had a blast and isn't that what's really important?

    No. The only important thing is knowing the show you went to was better than the shows everyone else went to. Everything else is meaningless.

    N1 and n2 in both chitown and ac weren't anything great so they cancel each other out. N3 goes to ac.

    Re: Can we even try to compare Chicago to AC?

    Are we talking strictly DMB or entire festival? Strictly setlists or does the venue quality factor in?


    Chicago's venue was fine once you (finally) got inside. Everything that's important was set up well. The stages were the perfect distances apart and the acoustics were good. The non-DMB performances were all fantastic as far as I can speak for. Comparing the lineups, it's hard not to give the nod to Chicago in that respect, although Dr. Dog would have been awesome.

    Re: Can we even try to compare Chicago to AC?

    I was at both weekends and have to give the overall edge to AC. The reason for this is that it was a very similar set list for the 2 weekends. In AC it was new and had the guests. I will take the AC location over Lakeside but the energy and crowd at Lakeside was superior. Both great weekends and now have to start counting down again. Great to meet many of you and hope to see some of you at the Gorge.

    Well if Chicago was the best shows you've seen, clearly that means it was better than some show you didn't go to.
