HALLOWEEN!!! enough said. Open with Seek Up and close with Two Step. The way the seating was General Admission was up front closest to the stage, so I was 20 yds. from Dave and the Boys. Unreal.

Very good show. Great jams, ending jam with Tim going into Carter then Jeff was great. Personal favorite was either You Might Die Trying or Burning Down the House, the people around really fed of these songs I felt like and had a good vibe. Halloween was great. Pretty good setlist too. Good times in OKC.

A 16-minute "Seek Up" was a welcome opener. I had never heard it live."Burning Down The House" burned down the house...as did "Sledgehammer". The arrangement of "Old Dirt Hill" was refreshing. The "Too Much" tease going into "Halloween" was an extremely rare treat. Tim Reynolds and Jeff Coffin had to be the players of the night. Carter's drum solo at the end of "Two Step" was sick.

Fourth time seeing them and they keep getting better and better. Great show. Great Dave Speak and was probably the most animated I've ever seen Dave at a show. I agree that the Bridge/Too Much Tease/Halloween was amazing. Been wanting to hear Seek Up for a long time and they opened with it. Off to Big D.

Great Show!!! Being on the 2nd row was badass...Gotta love when dave is dancing.. Looked like he was haveing alot of fun. I wanted to hear seek up and he opened with it, couldnt believe it. Two Step was amazing, with the long drum solo. 2008 summer tour will be one to remember!

Thrilled at the set list. Bridge >> too much (fake out) >>v HALLOWEEN was just epic. Sledgehammer was a great encore, as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole event. The ballpark was a fun venue. Took my wife and had a blast!

This is only my second DMB show, Bonner Springs last year was amazing, but OKCity was by far the best show ive ever been to. Anyone Seen The Bridge?/ Too Much (Intro)/ Halloween made my night. And Jeffs amazing jam on 41 was incredible hats off to the boys and Im already anxious to see them next year!

Great show in a cool venue - really brought the energy all night and the crowd responded (at least on the field). Halloween was SICK - totally blew my mind. Awesome #41 with Jeff too. See you in Dallas!

3rd show, they never fail to raise the bar. I was completely thrown for a loop with the two covers, great versions though. Tim Reynolds!!!!

It was my fourth show. I was not in GA and my section was pretty into it besides the 3 rows behind us.

Seek Up-I used to think Dave's yelling was my favorite part but not anymore...the sax and trumpet duel in the first 4 minutes is now the climax for me. This reminded me of Dallas from last year though as alot of the fans didn't know what song it was.

Dancing Nancies---->Warehouse-totally pumped to see this awesome segue again. Rashawn cranked up the salsa jam as always.

Burning Down The House-I really like it...i know alot of people don't but it's a crowd pleaser..and dave sings it with lots of emotion.

Cornbread-So fun. It's a monster. The Tim solo while dave freaks out is great and then it goes in to the wild buildup.

Old Dirt Hill-He told a story for the first minute about a camp counselor. The song just never goes anywhere. No direction at all.

Eh Hee-Pretty intense. Standard of course but still pretty intense. Tim adds alot.

You Might Die Trying-Standard compared to what it's been all tour but that's a good thing if you ask me. The song has really matured.

Crash-Good rush from the crowd. The ultimate sex song so it's better live. Even though the dude beside me was like "hike up your skirt little boy"...wierd

So Damn Lucky-DUUUUUUDE. The outro is effing amazing. it's already a great song but geeze. The crowd really dug this too even though they didn't know what the song was at first.

41-Jeff Coffin. That's all

Stay-I definitely like it better midset. 3rd time seeing it though.

Gravedigger-Props to Fenton and the video guys. The blood red cemetery shot was amazing. Really good live.

ASTB-Dave's new guitar run is great with carter just playing off of him. The fake too much is cool but nothing compared to.......

Halloween-Good God carter's drumbeats to start that out just freaked me out. I yelled "oh shit". dave kinda growled through it. His voice sounded great all night, i wonder if it holds up if they keep playing this every night.

Bayou-4th time in 4 shows seeing it. Tim adds a little bit. I dig the last half of the song.

Ants-Pure greatness. Extended Boyd Jam. They went through the D and G progression twice.

Sledgehammer-Not bad live really. Honestly that's the song stuck in my head right now. The end was pretty intense.

Two Step-Performance wise...best song of the night. Tim's solo was unique, and about 3 minutes long maybe 4. Then Carter's drum solo was freaking amazing. i'm talking 3 minutes or maybe longer.

Great Show. Middle lacked a little punch thanks to Old Dirt Hill but that was really the only downspot of the night. It's my 4th time seeing these guys and number 5 is in Dallas.

Highlights: Horn Climax at first of Seek Up, Cornbread build up with Tim's Solo, Jeff Coffin on 41. End of So Damn Lucky. The bridge and Halloween. and 2step owned all.

Have a great weekend Texas! See you in Dallas

Insane set list. I've been to 20 plus shows and this line-up with Timmy Reynolds was HOT! I loved the covers of Burning Down the House and Sledgehammer.

It was my first DMB show and I was about 20 feet away from the front. Needless to say I was beyond stoked. Great show and got to see Halloween out of nowhere. So bad ass.

Hands down the best show I have ever been to in my life. Not my first Dave experience, but I don't know how it can get any better.

The Anyone Seen the Bridge/Too Much/Halloween combo was brilliant. A great tease, and definitely more than I could have ever asked for. Great, great, show. There's nothing more to say other than kick yourself if you missed this.

1st show of a 3 show trip. OKC / Houston / Dallas (home)

Dave was animated most of the night and the GA setting being a ballpark added to the excitement for the crowd. 1st time in that type of venue set up. My brother & I were 3rd-ish row stage right and had great time with the crowd. The band were swatting at bugs off and on.

Tim's solos were great was great along with Jeff while he moved around a couple of time's. Appears that he's enjoying the fill-in role. Looked like Rashawn was helping Jeff a little with leads to jump into particular songs.

As everyone else Halloween was just great.

Highlight and song for me of the night was Halloween and intro to show with Seek Up.

Lowlight was the guy using a cup then later in the show an Aquafina bottle as a toilet to our left.

Great weather, show & crowd experience!

Back home in Dallas for the day then off to The Woodlands.

unbelievable show. the most "on" i've ever seen the band. carter was definitely feeling it all night, and the band pretty much played off of him. great seek up, nancies->warehouse was as good as always, awesome #41, halloween was unreal, and excellent two step to close. really a great show.

The opening run was spectacular, but then a few too many Stand Up songs appeared. Overall it was a solid, fun show, but the audience was a bit iffy.

Was very nice to be in a stadium atmosphere. Was within 5 rows of people to see them. Only downfall is wish there could have been more songs played as they have sang at other locations.

Incredible!...., to say the least. Seek up to open followed by Nancies>>Warehouse. There is no better way to start a concert. Just when i thought things couldnt get any better they teased too much into Halloween...other highlights included #41...Stay...Two Step...Ants...Crash...and in my opinion burning down the house...this was the kind of concert you will never foget, and it made for good good times.

This show was simply amazing! About a 1/4 of my friends and I got there around noon and made a dead sprint to the very front of the stage at 5, so we were all very pumped. The opening run of songs was great (Seek Up-Warehouse). A lot of the high school kids didn't know who talking heads were but my friends and I were all screaming "BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE!" The crowd was really into Cornbread and everyone that was in front with us went nuts during Dave's crazy dance. Old Dirt Hill through You Might Die Trying is probably what most ants will consider the worst part of the show but I actually thoroughly enjoyed ODH along with the story that came before it and I'm already a big fan of YMDT. Eh Hee I've never really been in to so that was my only low point of the night. So Damn Lucky outro was very intense, Dave was really into this one like I haven't heard on any of the taper pulls I have. #41 was nuts and it was only my second time to hear my favorite song so of course this was the highlight of the night for me. Coffin and Carter tear this version apart, probably the best of the tour thus far. Stay was full of energy and really got the crowd going and Grave Digger was played to perfection. HALLOWEEN!!!!!_______Need I say more? Dave screamed his heart out and the crowd went crazy. Bayou --> Ants was the perfect way to end the show. When they started playing sledgehammer my friend was so excited (Big 80's fan haha) and they played it right into an intense Two Step. LIke somenone already said, Dave was really really animated and laughing constanly. It seemed like they were all having a really great time dispite the 90 degree weather. But what I can I say that hasn't already been said this summer. The band is on fire. And I couldn't even tell you who stood out the most, as a whole they just really brought the house down. This was defintely my favorite show out of 19, being that I was so close and the band played their hearts out. Can't wait for the rest of you to see them!

Cheers!
