Wow...great venue, great show! It was perfect when the crowd started to sing "wise man" outro to OSW. Really seemed to make the boys smile up there! Looking forward to Monday night! Looking at the setlists for the three nights, I can't wait

Ok show...the scenery was great though. They need to turn off all the lights though, it really hurt the show, it was like daytime. Hopefully the next shows will be better.

I know it sounds redundant, but this one of the best DMB shows I have ever seen. It was my 4th Red Rocks show with the band and this was truly their best yet. The energy was great, and we got to see a few suprises such as "Time of the Season" and "Say Goodbye" - the only song that lacked energy was "Bartender" but they made up with it with one hell of a finale and an incredible encore. For anyone who thinks the new songs aren't good like, I believe you are mistaken...American Baby Intro and the jam out of Bayou were unreal....we shall see if they can top it on Sunday and Monday when I will see them again

This show was AMAZING, a little slow w/ Butch's Bartender solo, but even with the extreemly high concentration of Stand Up songs, the last half of the concert was unparalleled. Never seen Dave so animated, even though he might have been a bit sick. Also, after the main set, I think i saw Carter with an oxygen mask on, anyone else? The best sign was "Carter, stick me with your wood." Anyways, overall, great show!

Nice show to begin the weekend at Red Rocks. Good Time of the Season. Always nice to hear Say Goodbye. Dancing Nancies into Warehouse very Sweet. SMTS-->Too Much awesome as well. Nice Close in ODH and Ants

After seeing him at the gorge about 10 times and various other venues I have to say that all the build up about red rocks did not disappoint. It is freaking beautiful. Time of the season and say goodbye were definent highlights. Wish I could go all weekend but I have to go back to WA and work. Goddamnit!

I was a bit disappointed- the band seemed to have fairly low energy throughout the performance (except Boyd who played like a madman). The set list felt pretty average as well, though I did love Time of the Season and Louisiana Bayou (the first time I heard it live).

I don't care what anyone else says...my first night at Red Rocks (and an out of state show) was MORE than amazing! Don't really get to see scenery like this down in Texas lol...it was just incredible being around all of you hardcore Dave fans ("wise men" during the stone was great!)...looking forward to the next 3 nights! P.S. Anyone else think they should've saved American Baby Intro for a day when his voice was a little more solid?

Tonight was my first experience at Red Rocks and while the venue was absolutely beautiful and the entire time leading up to the show was surreal, the band wasn't at their best tonight. The setlist looks okay on paper but the energy really wasn't there. And when I say that, I mean for the first half of the set. They finished very strong and everything kinda came together in the end but, in the first half, nothing seemed to flow. It was almost as if someone put the setlist together for them. Oh well, I'm at Red Rocks, I'm not going to complain too much! See everyone tomorrow night!!

The beauty of this venue cannot be matched anywhere else that I have seen DMB play. The set flowed VERY well, but from EWU on, this set was just money.

Well being this was Red Rocks the show was extraordinary. Pretty mellow start but ufter Bartender the boys just went insane. Crowd interaction was very good. Also I was very surprised by this. Usually people start leaving before the last encore song ends but not at RR. Ants started and the whole crowd stayed and sang with the band. Very memorable trip and night.

Redrocks is awesome, row 40 w/ a broken foot isn't. But Dave is woth it, Time of the season was a awesome, and the show was great, but not quite as good as the other nights there.

Show was pretty good overall. Band sounded tight and played a fantastic song selection. Highlights were Say Goodbye, The Stone, Nancies . WH, Bartender, and the Old Dirt Hill-->Ants Marching closer. My only disappointment was the opening song. After all the hype and the big return to Red Rocks, the one song you pull from your entire catalog is Everyday? 4 of 5

First night at Red Rocks and worth the trip. We had front row seat and the view was amazing! Great setlist, great energy, great time! And to top it all off, I got a drumstick from Carter at the end!! Love it!!!!

Incredible energy. It was Boyd's night for sure. The band played the crowd and the cameras so well. Great way to start off the stand.

A solid show with lots of energy from Dave and Boyd. Psyched I finally got Time of the Season! Really liked Everyday opening the show, though the highlight had to have been the close of the show. Seriously, they brought it for the last six songs! A great way to open up an amazing weekend at the rocks! Also, the John Butler Trio put on a super solid set to open things up. Not only that, we were lucky enough to meet up with the band afterward for a signing. Very cool guys indeed!

So much build up, so much anticipation...it's been a dream of mine to see DMB at the world's greatest concert venue, I've seen many great shows there...this however disappointed me. Lame set, very lame encore. It was the second night in a row I saw them close with Ants and Old Dirt Hill isn't worthy of being an encore song at Red Rocks. Other than "time of the season" nothing rare was thrown in...sad start to a huge weekend.

I'm not gonna make it to monday if all the shows were like tonight. Beautiful rainbow over denver skyline before the show. Nice crowd "wise men" on Stone. Great closing to the show, Leroi was on point during the bridge and Dave loved it. It seemed as if Boyd spent more time at the front of the stage playing to the crowd then anywhere else. Great show boys. I hope this is a sign of things to come. Go Hokies!

A really great show with the band as excited and "on" as I have ever seen them. Would have been better with a friend along for the ride, though. Sat next to some cool people, though. Warehouse blew my mind and I have never seen or heard an ASTB as off the hook as it was that night.

Rocky Mountain High, night 1! It was like I was partying to DMB with 9500 of my closest friends (except for the bitch and her boyfriend next to me that told me not do sing and dance, and basically to not have a good time during the #36 outro in "Everyday").

Made the journey from Indianapolis with some of my best friends. Caught a drumstick. I\'ll never forget it. The entire plane was talking about the shows on the flight in Thursday night. I didn\'t expect the show to meet expectations, but it did. Did I mention I caught a drumstick???

The Everyday opener was uniquie and unexpected with the Louisiana Bayou-The Stone being my favorite in the first set. Then the jammin version of Bartender got me pumped and I was blown away with the American Baby Intro>Dancing Nancies>Warehouse. Old Dirt Hill was absolutely the best version I've heard.

Great Show. Big mistake on the lights in the back... big. I felt like I was getting sunburn from the lights. They would turn them off for like half a second and then turn them back on and everyone was getting pissed. It took away from the show. Otherwise good show. Carter was awesome on AB Intro. Butch tore it up on Tots. Boyd was on fire all night, but Roi didn't get a chance to shine. I'm going to N2 and 9th row on N3 also so hopefully that will be better.

What a great first night at Red Rocks. I was stunned by the beauty of this place as soon as I walked in. The energy level is unreal, considering how intimate of a venue this place is. Highlights include: Time Of The Season, Say Goodbye, Dreamgirl, The Stone (this was the song of the night, they payed the Can't Help Falling in Love outro that everyone in the crowd sang along with). Other highlites include: Stolen Away on 55th and 3rd, Nancies>Warehouse (lost somewhere at Red Rocks), and a killer Ants Marching encore. See y'all tomorrow night, I'm gonna climb a little higher for night 2.

My first DMB show at Red Rocks. Crowd was a little lackluster (used to the people going crazy at Alpine). Mellow show to start but picked up half-way through. The set lists for Sat and Sun looked better. Glad I was able to see the best band on the best stage.
