What can I say. The first of three nights at Red Rocks. The only thing that sucked was my seat location. Not used to being so high up, but we eventually found ourselves down in the front. Highlight for me was #34. This show was amazing, period!!!

Probably the second-best concert I've ever seen (the best being DMB on 6/15/05). My best memory was Trippin' Billies and Dave saying "We got a little feelin' tonight." You could definitely pick up on it. Something was in the air that night. Everyone was so into it, the energy level was so elevated.

Saturday night's show was something pretty awesome, Did not have the best seats but that was totally fine. Seek Up to open was not expected, this was amazing, sweet version of this song to. Easily the best song of the evening, this was followed by One Sweet World and Don't Drink The Water, what a way to start a show,wow. Rashawn Ross played with the band tonight which was pretty awesome, he's a really talented trumpet player. Heard Steady as you go for the first time tonight and that was pretty decent, Other highlights of this show was Tripping Billies and an awesome version of Two Step. Very very long show, they left the stage around 11.30. Lots of jamming tonight which is something I always enjoy!

Absolutley incredible! Went to all 3 nights at the gorge and this show blew all of them out of the water. Jimi Thing was unbelievable. I've never seen Dave with so much energy. During his scat he was even like with so so much beautiful playing i'm speechless and don't know what to say. Seek Up was a great opener, definetly considering it was the opener for the 95 show. OSW is always nice to hear. DDTW was extremely intense. The band absolutely just blew away the crowd. Smooth Rider was fantastic with RR. In the end, aside from prolly the best Jimi Thing every played Two Step was ridiculous. Butch blasted into his solo and Dave jumped to the side of the stage waiving his hands in the air as if to stop the show because it was too good. Butch and Carter went into this impromtu jam during the middle of the song that I had never heard before going back and forth. everyone needs to get a copy of this show.

Well...let's just say for those who did not get a chance to see this show in person, you really missed out. I'm not saying this to brag, but the content, energy, environment, (plus getting to meet some of the band), made my 18th show probably the best ever for myself.

I have told myself for years that if the boys ever played at RR again, that I would have to go. Honestly I have not been into the band as much lately just because I had a lot of other things going on. This was an AMAZING way to re-anoint myself with them. Red Rocks has got to be one of the most spiritual places in the WORLD to see the band, and I will be forever grateful for the experience of this past weekend. I am still in shock, and I am back home, 1700 miles from there. I can't wait to go back some day and see it again. The scenery, the music, the mood was like something that I have never experienced before. BT thank you for the tickets and the memories.

Seek Up AWESOME Opener! OSW and DDTW very good to hear them as well. Jimi Thing was so unreal no words can describe it. Covering of Blackbird was good too. Crash and LB awesome also. To close with Two Step, great ending to an Awesome night of watching and listening to DMB. I didn't think it could get any better than this show.

This was an amazing show. First time at Red Rocks, 7th DMB show and it was the best I've seen. Unbelieveable set list, kicking off with Seek Up-One Sweet Worl-Don't Drink the Water, killer opening three tunes. Overall an awesome night, perfect weather, great seats, awesome venue. The longest-fastest-most insane stretch job I've ever heard on Two Step was a killer way to end the show. Thanks DMB! uhh, if this is a duplicate, sorry, didn't see my first one post.

Review:
Living in NY I've been pretty spoiled seeing the band this year, and in the past, with seeing some interesting and off beat shows: Central Park, Randall's Island, Jazzfest (k, not in NY), and the Roseland shows, and was left pleased each time and only unimpressed once (2nd Randall's show). SInce hearing the rumors early this year of a Red Rocks return I figured that to be the top of the heap, and was in high anticipation for the entire summer. First off, I have to say even if the band didn't play a note I was impressed. The crowd was hyped right from the beginning, from left to right and top to bottom. The view is intense and really addds to the experience entire. Plus, the natural accoustics seem like something I've rarely heard. When the band started onto the stage everything came even more alive, and to start with Seek Up I knew the show was going to be memorable and well worth the trip. Best show I've ever seen?.....hard to say, but to consider that it might be alone carries considerable weight. Was hoping to see a recreation of "Live at Red Rocks", but this will do nicely. Hopefully this is the start of a return annually, unless.....(read my Sept 12 review)

The energy from the band and crowd alike plus the amazing set (apart from the first song of the encore) made it the best show I've ever seen! Definitely made the 12 hour drive up here worth doing :) Apart from being the victim of a hit and run (check out my post on the tour discussion boards if you can help!) it was a blast and hope the last two nights even come close to being as great!

Along w/ Sunday night this show was my favorite of the four. Seek Up as an operner was awesome, just like the Live@RR CD, how cool that was. Don't Drink the Water, #34, Crash, Best of What's Around and Two Step as the last song were my personal highlights. A phenomenal show!

You know that feeling when it seems like the planets are in alignment and you are in the center of all the overwhelming perfection? Well, this show, for me was as near to that as I'll ever get. It was more than the energy and enthusiasm from the band. It was more than the energy from the crowd. It was more than the simple act of putting it all together in a truly beautiful place. It was like 1+1+1=4. Blackbird. Best of What's Around. Tripping Billies. Seek Up. So good.

I have been to 19 shows and tonight's show edged out Golden Gate Park by a hair for number one on the list. In all fairness to the GGP show though, I will say that I'm sure it only gets the nod by a red rock or two as the venue had a lot to do with it. But the energy from the band, from the crowd, from everyone was just insane. Right from the opening notes of SEEK UP, someone turned to us and said "Did there even need to be a FRI night?" Well said by that guy! The LIOG LeRoi v. Rashawan duel was incredible (they were even finishing the other one's jams!) and the Carter driven Two Step as simply amazing. They almost lost it with that WAYG? selection in the E1 spot but, I'll let it slide because I hadn't heard it in my seven shows this year AND because they didn't put a cliche Stand Up song in that spot. And hey... IT'S RED ROCKS, BITCHES!!!

FRONT ROW!!! I cannot thank the Warehouse enough for the uograde after 6 years of being a member. Totally worth it. The Seek Up opener had me in awe and reminded me of my first 3 shows which were all Seek Up openers. Rashawn Ross sitting in for most of the set was a welcome dynamic change to the band, as I love the trumpet on a lot of these songs. Hello Again was on crack, a late BOWA, and a Two Step encore closer were phenomenal. Easily one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Out of 16 shows, this was the best that I have been to. 20-minute Seek Up to start, almost a 20-minute Two-Step to end it. The entire show was around 3 hours, just unbelievable from beginning to end, there's no way they can top that tonight.

It was a great night. This was my first show at Red Rocks. We had tenth row to stage left. It was a great show. They started off strong and they never let up. Seek Up was an amazing intro and Jimi Thing was about as badass as I have ever heard. It made the walk up to the venue worth it...believe me...

This has got to be the show that I have been waiting to see for the longest time! DAre I say it compares to the 12/21/02 MSG show?! MAybe not in guest appearances, but ceraintly in excitement and length and setlist. The band went on stage at about 8:20-8:30 and didn't even go off until 11:30. 3 different 20 minute songs...Seek Up, Jimi Thing and Two Step and then Billies, Hello Again, BAyou, Blackbird, #34 (this would be my 3rd time seeing it played this summer), American Baby, Bayou, and Don't Drink the Water....there is no way any other show this summer can be compared to this one in my mind! No, not even Alpine...not by a long shot! What a great way to spend a weekend, but to share my Rocky Mountain High, for a second night in a row, with 9500 of my closest friends!!! I can't wait to come back to Colorado :^D

I really dig it when they open with Seek Up and One Sweet World has always been a favorite, but as soon as Rhyme and Reason was played with Rashawn Ross on Trumpet the show reached a new level. I mean #34/Smooth Rider*/Jimi Thing*/Blackbird...what a run. The show kicked back up with Hello Again (crowd and band were jamming) and then Crash was a nice surprise. Louisiana Bayou* took on a whole new meaning for me for me in the aftermath of Katrina...Jazz Fest 06' will be once in a lifetime. I like how they played a new tune/old tune/new tune/old tune/fairly new tune/Two Step. This show only antied up the whole DMBstock weekend atmosphere!

Awesome, Awesome show. Much better than N1. Everyone was on fire the entire night. Jimi Thing was just too sick with Rashawn Ross. Seek Up was an amazing opener. Interesting choice with Where are you going on the encore. Overall, one of the best shows I've seen.

My first dave show. My first live changing experience. This band is so tight it's insane. DVD's don't do them justice. The crowd night 2 was uncontrollable. If there was a single night to make a dvd of the red rocks stand, i think it would be night 2. Good flow, great crowd. TWO STEP WAS OUTRAGEOUS!

What a show! Had to climb a mountain to make it to this one. It was a tough hike, but the view was immaculate. A great view of the Denver skyline and of the amphitheatre. The people up here was cool as hell and the setlist just added to it. The highlites: Seek Up opener (this was also the song of the night, what a way to get it started, like old times). Rhyme & Reason, #34, Smooth Rider, Jimithing, Blackbird, Hello Again with a great intro, Crash, Best of What's Around, American Baby, Tripping Billies, and Two Step that was very fast paced. Rashawn Ross was an awesome touch to some of these songs. Two down, two to go. Now it's gonna get really intense (I do't know how but it will). See y'all at a lower altitude tomorrow night.
