This show was incredible, I enjoyed the Stone from the previous night as an opener more then DDTW, but seeing 41 was incredible. The banned did an amazing job with Money, Tim is sick. Not only that, but Dave loosing the guitar and dancing the last 5 minutes of thank you was a sight to see. And for the record, he was dancing because the crowd was perfect and loud for singing "Thank you for lettinme be mecielf agin". All around a great show.

Wow. Short set list but not short on energy or jams. Loving Wings was a pleasant surprise...seems they pull something rare out here every year. Actually I thought Money was better at SPAC.?? But a Seek Up Two Step closer didn't suck. Lots of long songs in the set tonight so the setlist seemed short but we were indeed spoiled tonight!

absolutely incredible show from the first note to the last. Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) was a perfect way to end such a great concert.

Kick ass 2 step. Cant remember when the played such a solid 2 step up here in Boston, it may be the best they ever played up here. Good to hear loving wings, and sister. Highlight was thank you forletnmebemiceelf again. Crowd was really into it.

Really enjoyed #41.

Awesome show! I loved every minute. I never heard Loving Wings before, it was beautiful. And I love Tim playing with the group, I hope he stays he adds a lot. Watching Dave cut loose dancing to Thank You was priceless! I hope I never lose that image in my head.

don't know if we saw the same show, but i felt that this was not one of the band's better shows. highlights included ddtw to 41, sick jams on jimi thing and seek up, and rare songs like loving wings and money. but the crowd just ruined it. no one really knew many of the songs, and they missed the cues from the band on 41 and jimi thing, and it got so bad at the end of thank-you that dave threw his arms up somewhat angrily when the crowd couldn't carry the song. overall, great setlist and a good show that could have been way better. 11 pm curfew didnt help anything either.

I had a great time at this show. Highlights for me, of course, were #41 and Seek Up. I absolutely love Tim with the band. Fairly decent crowd in my area, except for the kids who were more interested in getting high than listening to the music.

The Tweeter is awful at crowd control. Getting in and out of there is seriously longer than the entire length of the show. But seeing BT rock out during Bayou makes it worth it.

Til' next year...

It was great to see Timmy again... Last time for me was on Dave's Accoustic Tour about 7 years back. The band seems to really pick it up a notch when he is along side them...wish they would make him a regular...

Much better setlist from the night before. #41 was great, one of my favorite songs and one I've only gotten to hear twice. Loving Wings was also a big, pleasant surprise I forgot how pretty that song is.

I think Tim and co. did a great job on Money, but it was dissapointing that they didn't transition into Money That's What I Want. Seek Up into Two Step was my highlight, great way to finish off the night.

While I like Sister I thought that the crowd wasn't into it too much, and I think the encore as a whole could have been better.

The only letdowns of the show was 1) Boyd seemed to be bottled up the entire show and completely off, something I never see. And 2) the setlist feels very short at only 15 songs? Not sure why.

Altogether great show, however.

Awesome show, crowd was out of it every so often. People around me didn't even stay for half the show, who knows why. Still no Ants Marching. I was expecting Sister to be replaced by Tripping Billies or something more exciting as an encore.

This has to be the best set that I have seen in my six years goin to Tweeter. For What It's Worth, Money, and Thank You were perfect cover songs to top off an amazing DMB performance. Tim Reynolds is just too sick.

Overall, good show. Seemed a little short but their was plenty of energy to be had. Dave and the gang started the night off with Don't Drink the Water and kept jamming all the way through thank you. Some of the better songs were #41, Louisiana Bayou (Boyd had an amazing solo), Jimi Thing, Seek Up, and Two Step. Encore was very well done and ended with a jubilant Thank You. Great music, great people, overall very good show.

ohhh-that smell, someone has something stinky, that would be row 10! What a show, "Thank You" was the bomb! As usual DMB and Tim blew me away! The vibe is contagious, can't wait to see them again. "Money" and the message of the video was spot on. Thanks, DMB just another fan!

Don't even know where to start. This show was incredible. High energy from the crowd and the band fed off of it. Highlights were 41, bayou, seek up, jimi, and money. They really rocked out tonight!

Happy to celebrate my #20 with this show. Short setlist, but the Jam's made up for it. You could tell that they scrapped a song or 2 b/c Dave switched out his guitar twice before two step. Damn you 11 o'clock curfew!

Tuesday was WAYYYYY better, and Loving Wings helped saved this from being a 1 Star show. Anybody who has this as an "instant classic" needs to turn in their DMB card. Michael Franti and Spearhead warmed up was worth coming in early. They were great.
The 11pm curfew killed this show.

This show had the best two step I have ever heard in the 10+ years I've been seeing DMB. And how often do you get to see Dave jam without his guitar? It was overall a great great show.

First of all, TWO STEP w/ Tim! That was amazing and no one really mentioned that. The solo at the end said it all. The setlist does seem short but its coz there were some very long songs that were played just the right amount to not overkill a jam. Energy from the band was a norm but it still had some big kick to its punch. Seek up, a great surprise and worth hearing with a Two Step follow up. Thank you is worth seeing live once but it won't become the next Watchtower go to song after this tour. Overall, if you're a DMB fan and never seen them with Tim you have to go this year and this concert to me gave me a whole new appreciation to the band.

I greatly enjoyed the show, but it wasn't my personal favorite setlist.
I really like Seeing Tim Reynolds hearing him with his renditions of long-time DMB classics was a breath of fresh air in some of my favorites. Especially Two step which was Tim was amazing in. It seemed that the rest of the band had a hard time coming back into the song after Tim went off in his solo but it was well worth it.

I attribute any other flaws of the show really to the poor seating I had and the five sixteen year old kids trying to score weed and chics all show long.

oh yeah.. and the Floyd cover.. jeez.. I'm going out on a limb and saying that was better than the original. :)

First ever DMB show. My favorite song is Seek Up, and they played it. In hindsight, I can't believe I saw 'Roi only five days before his accident, and one of his last days he ever played live with the band. I feel so honored to have seen him play. This show was so awesome. I never wanted the night to end!

dave broke a string during thank you and he wasn't "throwing his hands angrily" he was dancing.. and i'm pretty sure the crowd could handle singing "I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin".. over all good show, though after hearing them sound check sledgehammer twice I was hoping to hear it.

Like everyone says, it was a shame they had to quit at 11. Before 11. But as far as the setlist goes, this was a great first show for me! Who wouldn't want a 20 minute Seek up? I'm thankful i was lucky enough to see LeRoi Moore in action.
