Another excellent show from Dave. The piano solo on the encore (Two Step) was off the hook, the quality of the piano live was not as good as it is on the cd, I love it, it is awesome, check it out...

awesome show...way better than the night before. when the entire crowd was chanting two step for the encore, the band had no choice but to play it. i'm getting goose bumps just thinking about it now.

Old school. Quality. Great version of Grey Street. AATW was very edgy. Crowd chanted for Two Step during the encore and got it. It was unbelieve.

My first time hearing both Loving Wings and Big Eyed Fish. The whole amphitheater was rumbling during the encore break with chats of Two Step. They played Two Step.

My second show, first time I really understood how amazing this band was. Loved "The Stone" at this show! We danced so much.

User: jobo5432

I'd have paid triple the ticket price to see this show. Awesome show guys! There was a rumor speading that the band was going to pick a show from the Summer tour to release as an album. This could be a contender if that rumor was true; I don't know for sure. Thanks for the music!

yea... finally my first 2 day event... alway use to be one days for me... both nights were amazing... but night 2 was stellar... i sat 5th row and loved it... so this review is for night 2 parking lot scene is one of the best i had seen... every car spot was packed with people and grills and everything... many many hours in advance... loved it... sequrity was cool... during the show... awesome... took a bunch of snaps from my seat... hopefully some will come out... sequrity was dancing with the concert... loved it... I got there super fucking early to scoop shit out... got to my seat before opening act... dave came out to anounce them and was very talkative and fooling around he was pretending to talk on his cell phone while he announced the band... he mentioned that boyd and told the band about them... a couple songs into the opening act... they mention that they hopin to get a special guest on stage... well they played a few more songs... while this is happen in knew it had to be boyd who the hell else... well being close i say boyd off to the side of stage gettin ready to join them... waved to him... gave him the peace and then the thumbs up... and he did it right back to be with me... it was cool... he came out... and did the vocals on the song with solos between... it was very good... and i thought he sang better then i have ever heard him... i was surprised... then end of opener set talked to tapers... noticed that the electric was out... and knew it had to be IDI because its the only opener electric other then so right... and they haven't done a so right in awhile... guess what... it was IDI... cool though... but i hate 2 min openers... next... another give away... 12string comes out... butch leaves... dut duh dooh.... BIF... awesome to hear... it hasn't been around for a little while and i love the song... this definitly segued into the stone... and sounded awesome with lots of energy... i must have something about me... cause they love to play the stone when im at the concerts... no complaints... awesome... dave says thanks and then says... my good friend stefan lessard... and before i could even think or dave finish lessard... he was already straight into crush... no little bass intro like you normally get... love the song... R&R... very good... like the song way better then many others and it fit so well right here... 12string back out... and they had played GS, Bartender, Kit Kat, all yesterday so i was totally thinking it would be GIG hopeing for a repeatless or close to show... and it was... and quiet to start but definitly built... now this is where the concert could go any direction... you got a lot of the things played from different albums and you don't know what step they will take next... well fuck... how about nancies... and it rocked... crowd was totally into this song... (the whole concert too though)... awesome... really... that went straight into LW which i haven't been the biggest fan of in past shows... cause of the energy killer but it was cool... it will grow on me... and then of course you know WAYG is next when you hear LW and it came... and it went and i enjoyed it... nothing more to say... other then that it was an expected repeat 12 string came out and i was confused... they ran out of playable 12string songs (out of the 2 nights) that would be played... so then i thought to myself... is JTR a 12 string... i think it is... o man that would be wicked... welll it was GS... and its a good damn song... but heard it last night... but if your going to repeat... why not GS... very nice... everyone was felling a #41 after yesterdays show... and it came... and it was long and good... i loved it... electric comes out... and i was like hmm... space between, sleep to dream her here my only to thoughts for a electric... but so right slipped my mind... and in return made the song way better.. i loved it... dave is doin some funky shit at the end of that song now... really pullin out some funk between his main riffs... i loved it... wish that would have switched places with IDI no guitar tech... electric stays... and space comes on... good song... enjoyed... lighters going strong very nice... WWYS... awesome... great song DAD... sweet... slow but love to hear it... watchtower... awesome crowd interaction with the song... on with everything... set break... one that i needed since i was standing ever since before the opening band, i hadn't stopped movin all night... i took this time to turn around sit on the top of the chair that was infront of me and just look out from stage point of view with the loud crowd and the lighters... it was awesome... others ended up doing the same... lol the full band comes out to my amazement... and all i can think is that it must be PNP-Rapunzel... one because its a segue that is also a closer... 2.. because of all the intruments that the band members had... 3.. because at the begining of the show dave was patting his heart like a heart beat... and 4... because while the crowd was chanting 2 step carter seemed to tease or start to play hearbeat... with the bass drum and some cymbols... crowd went nuts for them to play 2 step... and band was laughing and having fun with it... dave would turn around and then turn back talking with the band... i really think they knew they were going to switch because they were talking and pointing so i think they were planing out who wants to solo and when.... stefan was teasing us in the front rows by shaking his head no... and then a couple times walking to the side of his speaker stakes to go behind to switch to the 2 step bass but then would turn around and lean and smile... sure enough... at the same time... fonzi goes to get the 2 step bass and roi changes to the bari... fuck ya... now we got it... boyd wipes out the biggining and then dave and then so on... and it was crazy... butch soloed for so long it was awesome... and he was into it... standing up and sitting down all through out it and with the energy of the parts of the solo... and carter keep building and building... everyone gets their turn at the fun and the song goes on for ever... i loved it... best 2 step i have seen... can't wait to catch it...

Big Eyed Fish -> The stone was an unexpected surprise. My prayers were anwsered with Dancing Nacies. So Right was great. The band gave the audience what they wanted during the encore by playing Two Step in response to repeated chants for it. (I was a little bummed later to hear that the band had planned on playing Long Black Veil and Ants, I've never heard ants live) :(

made better time tonight...caught the whole show..better seats...better section (6)..better crowd..better night all around! This crowd would not die..i did it as the opener wasnt bad....yes i said wasnt bad..i rocks live but still not a fav...BEF had some mistakes but the crowd still loved it..lol.into the stone...amazing!! CRUSH..the place exploded!!! amazing version very tight..R&R, nancies, 41, wwys the set was great! the crowd even rocked through TSB, WAYG nd loving wings. Encore time.i was hoping for 2 step..i guess the other 23,000 fas were too.for about 3 mins, on 3 different ocassions everyone chanted "we want two step" and we got it! I think it was close to 18 mins and it was amazing. My fav show of the tour, and possibly the bst show Ive ever seen. Great set, great energy from the band and the crowd. I love DMB!!!

This show also had a great setlist, but not as good as the first night. The Dancing Nancies and Rhyme & Reason made the show great. When the band came out for the encore I think they were going to play something like PNP->Rapunzel or Ants, but the crowd kept saying "We Want Two Step" and after about ten minutes of debating the band went ahead and played Two Step and it was incredible. Definitely pick up this show because Carter goes insane on about three or four songs.

This is still my all time fave DMB show. Kick ass versions of "Crush", "#41", AND "Watchtower". Also met my two best friends in the parking lot that night (I love ya Mel & Jammer!). A great setlist overall, and I couldn't have been happier with it. And for future reference...NO MORE "TWO STEP" CHANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm pretty sure I sat in section 9. Great concert. My last weekend before I went and joined the Air Force. Bought the tickets off a guy online. Great time!!! The very very slow traffic after the show didn't bother me at all after having one of the greatest moments in life.

This was the best show i have been to this year. It had a ton of energy, you could tell they were diggin the crowd and the crowd sure as hell was digging them. everyone chanting two step for the encore and them changing instruments and playing it was the hightlight...and they played dancing nancies.

User: song41jams
Review:
Hard to say this was better than Night 1. Although I did like the setlist better. For the second straight weekend the crowd chanted for Two Step and got two step. To be honest I was not chanting for it. It was not the best way to end the show. But its cool the band is giving what most fans want.

This was the first concert I had ever attended. And I couldnt have asked for a better one. Before I went I wasn't too big of a Dave fan. But during the show, the live performance just blew me away. And the crowd chanting Two Step, and the band playing it....sent chills down my spine. Absolutely breath taking performance. I give it a million stars
