The Willie Nelson cover was awesome. Although someone behind me complained about it. It's ok though, they were probably just insane.

My first DMB show, and a very lackluster one at that. Dave was sick, and the only one who put any effort into the show was Boyd. Foxboro is an awful place for concerts, the people around me didn't know any of the songs, and I basically watched the band on TV all night. The performance itself wasn't that great either and was very Everyday heavy. Two Step was the highlight.

My first show. Very good version of LIOG, BOWA. Two Step was the highlight of the show. Other than that, fairly low energy from the band and the crowd. I left mildly disappointed.

My first DMB concert and first time in Foxboro Stadium as well!! Had a great time and really enjoyed the setlist.

Loved BOWA, but could lose the ladies. Great LIOG right after JTR. Glad to be anong the first to here "Ain't it funny". Two step was kinda anti-climatic, cut short and all. Really wanted to hear Butch solo again after LIOG.

He played a lot off of Everyday in this show. I really like the album and was pleased on how much of it he played. It's great to see him pull off the new stuff for the first time. The highlight was definetly the Two Step closer

Time for my two cents on this show. Macy Gray- I tried to tolerate the singing, but ending up on the floor after every song is not cool; at least the backup dancers were nice. I thought that WHEN THE WORLD ENDS was not a great choice for an opener, the song doesn't have the energy as others he could of picked. BEST OF WHAT'S AROUND did have that energy, I would of liked to see that one first. I enjoyed GRANNY, but I soon wondered why weren't the video screens on. That's when I DID IT started up with the nice guitar on the screen. BIG EYE FISH (or Street Fish, One Eye Fish, etc.) was cool, especially how Dave started in the middle and looped back to the beginning. BARTENDER was fun but Kidjo on SATELLITE was new and interesting, a very unqiue expirience. Moving on, the only other song I have to talk about is #36->Everyday->#36, very nice, first time I saw them perform it. As soon as I heard Everyday when I bought the album, I said to myself, "Isn't that #36?" It's cool how they combined the two songs. For the encore, I think Two Step had the closing energy, but it was amzingly short. The verdict: It had it's good points, but the Everyday/Lillywhite set lacked enough crowd pleasers. Also, I give props to the man with the pink balloons that tried to get Pig played.

Saw both shows this year at Foxboro. I love when he covers songs so covering Willie during the encore was great.

My first DMB show. It was awesome. Let me just say that Dave's songs sound sooo much better live. I can't say that for many bands.

I got pretty bad Whouse seats, had a GREAT time pre-show with a bunch of local kids, got really ahmmered, but still enjoyed the hell out of the show. Bartender stands out for me. Was happy I missed the rain show until I read the reviews.

i love leroi, he can play the pennywhistle on my birthday if he wants... it was raining, poop, but i had an awesome time.. however my friend nichole did not, she did a great job of bringing me down the whole show, see there's this phenomenon that happens when dave plays in mass. a bunch of loud asshole college kids show up and ruin it all, ya know who i'm talking about, the white hats..anyway, she did not enjoy this aspect and kept leaving me mid-show to get water because she was way too drunk, due to the fact she couldn't deal with the crowd sober.. great! but, i hate it when people leave bad news, all that matters is that i had a blast, and heard the space between, which is currently my favorite dmb song, sorry, i'm a hopeless romantic..

Great show from what I can remember. Tailgating was so much fun, that I barely made into the show!!!!

everyday....that's what this concert was all about. that plus the fact my seats kinda blew, i can't say this ranks up there in favorite dmb concerts. bowa and granny were awesome to hear though. it was cool to hear ain't it funny for the first time, though crowd was a little ehh to it. two step---they saved themselves there, awesome jam.

The first of the final Foxboro shows (I'm still upset at the DMB web page for changing Foxboro stadium to Gillete stadium, they're two seporate venues and DMB has yet to play Gillete). This show was a mellow show with too much moisture in the air. DMB made the best of it, and the show premiered (to me) many of the Everyday CD (the songs missing from everyday on this set list would be played the next night, except Dreams of our fathers).

BOWA, Granny, JTR....ahhh! I also liked the elecrtic Rapunzel. Plus, Roi on the penny whistle. :)

Had great seats, and from where I was, the sound was good and the band had a ton of energy. Song highlights were WTWE; Granny; IDI; Fish>Bartender; If I Had It All; Everyday (#36); and Two Step. The band was really digging their new material, which was cool to see, and I always love a new, unexpected cover (Ain't It Funny), so that was cool too.

Worst seats we ever had. Great show. Far away. Got scaled by a cop while minding my own business. Very scary place, America.

I had a restricted view to this show, but it was still a great show. They played The Space between and it was rad!

This show wasn't the best show I've been to, but their performance of Lie in Our Graves was amazing. Boyd was very much on fire that night. There were also good performances of Granny, Best of What's Around, and the first performance of Ain't it Funny How Time Slips Away

pretty good show, although lots of everyday songs.

Review:
The show was infallible. Angel was awesome, even though the idiots behind me were screaming fighting and punching each other out. (He was checking out that chick, btw). Yep, I called over that Nazi security and had them "moved". BOWA rocked and to be followed by Granny, I couldn't be happier. Graves was awesome. Two step encore was the bomb and a sweet way to wrap it up. Any true fan walked away with a big grin on their face. My sister's first show and she loved it! It's so awesome going with DMB concert 'virgins'.

User: TheStoneR36

First time getting to see alot of lillywhite songs and all everyday songs live. As much as i hate i did it, when they played the opening notes and daves hands lit up the screens above for the first time of the night we were dying. then BEF into Bartender. So much passion in the end of the song that i havent seen before it just sent chills up your spine. Angelique Kidjo singing african verses to satellite was a great suprise. Angel was played out well although i thought the lovely ladies would never end, The best lie in our graves ever-boyd went absolutly nuts in this incredible version. Really glad to hear them mix everyday and 36 for my first time, and the new sounding rapunzel on electric guitar was played well. Expecting to hear waste and then he breaks out into aint it funny for the first time ever, i couldnt believe it. And then two step was short but so strong and moving that it was a good fit for the close. I had a blast even though from what i know it was the same show basically as the giants show on the 11th.

Worst show Ive seen out of 33 shows. The crowd was terrible. The security were Nazi's. Lastly, the sound in that place is terrible, I'm glad they tore it down.
