First and only D&T show. Being a Hoosier and seeing them at IU was thrilling to say the least!

First time I have ever seen Dave & Tim. Absolutely incredible. Especially since it was a free show. Although I would have paid for my ticket if I had too. Overall top show I have seen in a long time.

Just wanted to thank Obama's people for ruining my concert experience! They offered "VIP" tickets for anyone who registered 20 people to vote by Saturday afternoon. Just in case, I still showed up at 9:00 and was the 40th person or so in line. The pulled me out of line around 4:00 and assured my my "VIP" seats would be better. I sat in the 12th row. Everyone I was standing in line with for 8 hours were in the first 3.

But the show was great. I've never seen Dave and Tim before, and they were everything I had hoped. Who knows if I'll ever get another chance to see them from the first three rows.

Thanks again Obama staff.

Great show. One of the best I've seen. Dave & Tim really let loose on some jams... almost as if they were just playin without a crowd.

This show was my first D+T show, and it rocked. A great version of Dreaming Tree which I had never heard the 2 perform together! Smooth Rider?! Who would have guessed that one? Glad to have the 2 back in Bloomington.

I had seen seven DMB shows and this was my first Dave and Tim show. I like the band together as a whole better however there were parts of this show that were amazing.

THis was one of the best shows I've seem. Although I waited outside for 3 hours and the pre determined lines fell to shit and they ran out of nachos he played the dreaming tree with tim. Fucking awesome. say no to Obama.

Wife and I raced to a corner seat off to the side of the stage. VERY GOOD seats and Dave's family was directly in front of us only 10-20 feet out. Awesome. Dave's interaction with the crowd was 2nd to none that night!

After 15 DMB shows this was my first D&T show and it didn't disappoint. 7th row seats after waiting almost 6 hours in line and a mad dash once the doors opened. They did great versions of every song especially Crush, Cornbread, and Save Me. So worth the drive, the money and the wait in line!

Of the 3 D&T shows I've been to, this was the least impressive. Dreaming Tree was the only song I haven't seen them do before. Even Dave admitted that the setlist was unimaginative, saying Ants Marching as the closer was "transparent." Don't get me wrong, I had a good time and the concert was good. But it wasn't nearly as good as the Purdue show in 2003 (and I'm an IU grad).

Thanks for the free show, Dave. But if you're going to suggest that I should vote for Obama, at least give me a few reasons why.

well what can i say...it was amazing, the spaces that needed filling were filled. I hung out with new friends in line for about 7 hours. got a little drunk, sang my heart out, etc etc...had reunions with old friends...it was just a really really great time. and it was free! great weather, great set list, dave talked allot, i sat really close. AND THEY PLAYED DREAMING TREE! I've wanted to see them since live at luther came out and now I've got too and I'm going to see them in Hawaii in a week! a great joy; don't see why people would complain over subjectivity.

An amazing show! One of the most memorable concert experiences I have ever had. Concert for Obama and Dave talked a ton, was in great spirits, and even joked about his son "having a penis." magical night!

what an amazing show. a lot like Radio City with some differences, including obnoxious drunk people behind me, complaining about dave being late...IT WAS FREE GET OVER IT!

anyway, the show was awesome. This was my first time seeing a Dave and Tim show and I was blown away by Tim. Stream was probably one of the best parts of the evening.

Some of my favorites were Dreaming Tree, Stay or Leave, Save Me, Gravedigger, Nancies, and Crush. 41 is my favorite song so i loved that. I was pleasantly surprised by smooth rider, i don't really dig that song full band, but dave and tim rocked it out. The ants closer was pretty "transparent" as Dave indicated, but it was fun.

Dave is such a goof...talking about exploding puppies, his son having a penis, and just a lot of other things that just didn't make sense. it was pretty funny.

I had an absolute blast, and I just can't believe I didn't pay a dime for tickets. what an awesome event. i also got a ton of quality photos from the show with my zoom lens. phenomenal.

My first Dave & Time show. Amazing! Loved hearing them do Dreaming Tree. And the fact they were doing the show to get out the vote made this show even sweeter--and at my alma mater, nonetheless!

My first D&T show! It's like nothing else to see their chemistry...absolutely breathtaking! The seats were awesome, although pretty high up! I was so happy to be there and enjoyed Smooth Rider, Dreaming Tree, and Tim's song, Stream! AMAZING! Great show overall and just enough Obama talk. Dave was SO funny! It was like a comedy show AND a D&T show! Hell yeah!

Loved it... small and close, great sound, Assembly Hall was built for concerts and basketball. One of those, "I got tickets, you call into work" shows, fast paced and perfect. When I called in my friend/manager said, "Donít tell me youíre going to the Dave concert"! I replied, "I won't tell you that, because your management, but I will say my 'Uncle Dave' is real sick, and I won't be in tomorrow! My first "Dave & Tim" show. My personal "Radio City" show! (5 for many reasons)

1st d&t show and it was awesome! It was well worth the drive and other expenses. Dreaming Tree was easily the hottest song of the night, very well done. ...and dave talking about exploding dogs and bananas, absolutely halarious!
