dave was sick...watchtower

User: dmbguitar#34

It was cool to see Dave play by himself. I absolutley loved the acoustic version of Don't Drink the Water. He could have played a longer set though

User: dmbosw41

It was by far one of the best events I've ever been apart of. The 20th anniversary of Farm Aid was spectacular. Every artist that came out did more than a great job and I'm proud to say that I attended a great event that's been going strong for 20 years now. I've never seen so many people in one place for such a great cause it made me smile. To everyone who showed up, thanks for coming by and I hope to run into a lot of ya'll again.

seeing dave is always awesome but this show was pretty terrible for him. You could obviously tell he was holding back, maybe saving his voice-for what i dont know. ddtw and watchtower completly lacked thier usual enegry.

Review:
Sure I missed the fills, but Dave can hold his own. To be on stage by yourself with just your guitar and a mic. Damn! I thought he kicked ass!

Creepiest crowd ever! Jon & I have been to two other Farm Aids at the World but this will be our last. Between the guy telling my brother that he shoved a fish up another guy's ass because the other guy narced out a friend and the couple from Iowa who got into a huge domestic, I was weeping for the future of humanity and fearing for my life. There was some great music (John Mayer & Buddy Guy, Widespread, Wilco, Emmylou Harris and of course Dave solo).

Dave acoustic Awesome

Awesome setlist. It was fun to see him solo.

User: IrishND2226
Review:
Pretty good set list, really liked to hear DDTW. Kenny Chesney took for ever to get off the stage, but when he did Dave rock it. But in all honesty, Neil Young stole the show with his performance of Southern Man. Neil just completely rock out and i am sure even Dave would give him props.

User: JasonCoz
Review:
- Did anyone else think kenny chesney played for longer than dave. Yes... Kenny was on so so LONG... But it was ok after Dave was on. Great show! First solo I have been at. Also Neil Young was GREAT... Made the 13hrs all good.

We sat up on the lawn till just before Dave came on. It was a great afternoon in the fall sunshine. We left before the show ended and gave our seats to a couple we meet on the lawn. Turns out he worked for Alligator records and he sent me a couple cd's. Very cool

Don't Drink The Water into This Land Is Your Land? Sounds about right.

User: Kevin 1213

I was selling T-Shirts and my boss told me to go sell them in the seats. So I did untill Dave Came on. When he did i placed my bag on the stage and watched Dave play solo! Best of it was that i was gitting paid to watch it !

IT was nothing short of amazing, Dave was so into it tonight you could tell he was lovin every minute of it. I was surprised in how many people got up and left after he was done

User: lipster3
Review:
Awesome concert...Dave rocked with Widespread Panic and it was a nice surprise to hear some Some Devil songs during his set.

I just saw dave 5 times in 9 days and has it been awesome! It was great to see him play songs from Some Devil at Farm Aid, although all shows were amazing!

Amazing. A very long day. Did anyone else think kenny chesney played for longer than dave. what seemed like an eternity of hell paid off when dave came out. I had to of been high as hell when he got on stage, i could see it in his eyes. Amazing set. It was my first time seeing dave solo. could have done without ants but the scat at the end was great. can't wait till vegas. take it easy.

Review:
Dave kicks ass. Don't Drink the Water and Watchtower blew me away. I missed the rest of the band though - and I wish Kenny Chesney hadn't taken so damn long. I couldn't believe he played Ants Marching solo - can't wait for winter tour

User: Tbenz12386

I figured he was going to do almost all Some Devil songs so I was pleasantly surprised. It was hilarious when he messed up the words to Gravedigger. Overall, awesome day at Tinley.

User: TheOneAJK
Review:
Didn't get to see Dave and Friends Tour so it was nice to hear a bit from Some Devil. Totally shocked by DDTW and Nancies, and what can beat a mid-set Ants and a Watchtower closer? Amazing show, great day!
