Amazing experience to be 10th row center!!

Tonights show was an average one. The highlight of the night was Robert Randolph's play during Louisana Bayou.

Well...being 8th row center, directly 25 feet in front of Dave, he could have been singing the phone book and I would have been on cloud nine; but last night ROCKED. LB was AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG....Ants closing was wonderful; I never get tired of that song. All the new stuff is wonderful. Lots of good old ones too. :)

WOW, insane show!!!!!!! It's too hard to name the highlights because this whole show was amazing, but LB with Robert Randolph would def. have to top the list. Stand Up really rocked too... soooo much better live! Also the improv. (or whatever it was) on Two Step towards the end was something I've never heard before and sounded really great. This was only my 4th show, but this def. is the best I've seen yet. I have 5 more shows so it's going to be interesting to see how much better it can get. WOO !!!!

Great concert, better than last years. Wish he would have played more older songs, alot from new CD.

My girl and I enjoyed the show. Lawn seats are the best at the Pavilion, and the parking lot never lets you down. Who needs a Portapot, when you got your partners helping hand and the nearby woods.

Once again, an awesome set list from Dave. My buddy called the One Sweet World Opener, and what would a DMB show be without a sick version of Ants?

I've been to about 10 shows, this one was my favorite. From Dave's air guitar during Jimi Thing to the 20 minutes of Two Stepped goodness to Robert Randolph lighting the place on fire during Louisiana Bayou... I'm speechless. The new songs are great live, and fortunately we didn't get stuck with Out of My Hands again. Looking forward to the Nissan Pavillion show on the 26th!

My 12th DMB show. Another Ants closer for me. This show was very solid . . . Rhyme and Reason never disappoints. He sang all the verses to Rapunzel.

If you thought the Saturday show was amazing, words can't even begin to describe the Sunday show this year. Opening with one sweet world was excellent. Dave even played my other concert request- Lover Lay Down. It was a great experience for me to hear my two favorite Dave songs, #41 and LLD all in one weekend!

Absolutely awesome!!! This was my 10th show, my first out of state and first two nighter. He played an awesome setlist, LB was way better with Robert Randolph. Lost my voice by the end of the encore! Can't wait to do it again next year...we even got to see the tour buses on the way to the concert!!!!!

Review:
AMAZING SEATS!!! In general, too many old people in the pavillion. Otherwise great show. Robert Randolph on "Bayou" was definetly the highlight of the evening, and closing with "Two Step" was awesome. Again, not a fan of all the stuff from "Stand Up."

pretty good show, but being as close as I was, it was amazing. RR tore the place up on bayou. mess up on two step, but it rocked...the jam was stellar. 2nd time i dropped roi's drum stick... i'm such an idiot! ugh. will never forget this night. i'll probably never be that close again.

Robert Randolph opening was great and playing a Michael Jackson song really got the crowd going. Then Dave and the guys didn't disappoint with a great setlist. Best way to end the weekend with Two Step, Old Dirt Hill, and Ants. Great time!

This was my 10th show and hands down the best one. I dont know where to start, maybe the crowd chanting for Two Step and then they played it. I can tell you that they were not going to. How do I know that. Dave and Boyd were looking back and talking for a couple secs and then signal to carter. LeRoi was even thrown off. You could see him running back quickly to switch up his Sax. He didnt even have a clue. Or was it when Dave was running across the stage jumping up and down thrust his fist in the air during Carter's jam. Or was it during LB when Robert Randolph came out and jammed with them. Or was it when Dave played air guitar during Jimi Thing. Or was it when Steffan and Boyd had dueling solo. Whatever it was, it was with out a doubt the best show!

Working for CSC that night my husband was a supervisor was working the pit and replaced the guy in this position (stage left mains) because he was falling asleep during the first show. I must say that was a great crowd and a great show. We were sitting just near the two in section two.

By far one of the 2 best shows I have ever been to... even beat the year before when i was front row. The other one, of course, was the night before.

User: gravedigger32
Review:
To me the second night of any two run show is always the best!! This night was better than the first. The energy was insane!! Robert Randolph and the Family Band were great!! Louisiana Bayou was awesome especially with Robert and Boyd feeding off each others energy!!! Hate when people yell for Two Step but they played it and boy did they play it!!!! Ants closer was the end to a perfect weekend!!!! Next stop Saratoga!!!

User: hkcliffy
Review:
Incredible show tonight - clear instant classic was robert randolph joining the boys for a killer "bayou" Nobody asked me but here's my vote anyway - let robert join DMB permanently - he rocks and has the most joyful energy I have ever seen on stage. All members of DMB were obviously thrilled to have him on stage and they looked in awe of his steel guitar solos. More Robert Randolph!!! We were row H - only about 10 rows from the guys - great seats - lots of bud passing around!

Review:
OH man... last year this time, he was kinda boring and a bit gloomy but tonight you'd think he was high. he was all over the stage, dancin like a fiend, and so was the entire lawn. it was a sea of people, and on the slow songs, you could see a gi-normous amount of lighters and/or cell phones. i had fun. also, everytime that guy does jimi thing... another "OH YEAH" flies out of my mouth because the scatting is fantastic. ...furthermore, my boyfriend, until this concert, was a dave virgin. ...i think he would've liked the night before better unfortunately. he doesn't know enough songs by him to appreciate the jam sessions. but he still had fun. dave brings people together :)

I have been to 8 shows, this was the best one. They were having so much fun, Boyd was jammin, Dave did his little dance, Carter had a solo, they duet with Robert was kickin huge ass, smooth rider was fat, two step, rupenzel had so much energy, so did one sweet world, the set list does not reflect how great this show was. See ya in Hershy, Montage, Camden, and NY.

Absoutlely great session if your into jams. I thought that Jimi Thing jam was great, and Robert Randolph is an amazing pedal steel guitar player, enjoyed the entire weekend, spent great times at Bennett Acres campground, and I loved the closer of Ants Marching and I enjoyed Two Step as well.

Another great set. Louisiana Bayou with Robert Randold was completly twisted. Dave didn't repeat the crazy scat from the night before but that's to be expected. The audience was really into the show and the band really seemed to pick up on it. I'm really starting to like Burgettstown... I can't wait to download the shows when the tapers do thier majic. Thanks to those who do that for all of us.

Another great show. Jimi Thing was awesome. By far the best Two Step ever. New songs were awesome again. LB was insane with Robert Randolph.

User: scohum
Review:
Great show, as always. The new stuff all played fantastic live. My husband and I loved Robert Randolph playing with DMB on Louisiana Bayou. Loved hearing Grey Street. The only drawback maybe for me was that a lot of the old songs were the standby radio hits--Too Much, So Much To Say, etc. But the final song of the night--Ants Marching--was a kickass version. Love everything, but really could've gone for some "songs less traveled."

I thought it was awesome!!! I think that might have been the best show ive seen dave play since his final show at three rivers stadium. Im a big Jurassic 5 fan and i hate to admit it, but robert randolph was so much better.

User: tays03

this was the 4th time i've seen DMB and by far the best show. i thought it was going to be hard to top the previous night's show. but i was wrong. i loved Too Much...probs the best version i've heard. LB was ridiculous and robert randolf simply abused that lapsteel guitar. bet Two Step jam ever. i don't know what he was singin' at the end but it was awesome. old dirt hill was amazing and the crowd participation was pretty cool at the end. and Ants Marching was awesome like usual. this defs could be a Live Trax show.

User: tbholc

This show was amazing, the crowd had a ton of ebergy and the band fed off it all night long. the new tunes were great, and the old tunes keep getting better. I have never seen the band having more fun on stage, and even the light show was amazing.

Great show. Jimi Thing and Ants Marching were the best in my opinion. Louisiana Bayou with Robert Randolph was unreal.

User: tmurray42
Review:
Unbelieveable. Energy was much higher than the Saturday show. Rapunzel, Grey Street, and Too Much were crowd favorites, but Stand Up songs were received really well too. Two Step closer was amazing, crowd participation made Old Dirt Hill much better live than on the album, and Ants Marching...well...it's Ants Marching.

User: Toc41

Did not think the band could top the performance from the night before, wrong WOW OSW->Rapunzel, Smooth Rider was cool live, Louisiana Bayou with ROBERT RANDOLPH, always nice to hear Lover Lay Down, Hello Again WOW Carter went nuts in his solo. Closed with Two Step with a new jam at the end it was awesome. Encore ends with Old Dirt Hill (eh) and ends the weekend with Ants.

Another great show in Pittsburgh. I think night two was probably a little better than night one, but both had some amazing songs. Tonight's Two Step was a really good version with Dave doing some singing at the end of the song that sounded like a cover, but I couldn't tell. Lousiana Bayou with Robert Randolph was awesome, with lots of energy. The song sounded very different with the pedestal guitar. Other highlights were PNP-> Rapunzel, Grey Street, Hello Again, Too Much, Stand Up, and Ants. When they did SMTS near the end of the set, I thought we were going to get ASTB into a new song since they had already done Too Much and Rapunzel, but it wasn't the case. Overall I think this night has the potential for a Live Trax release. There was a lot of energy, the new songs sounded great, classic old tunes, and there was a guest appearance.
