VIP tickets. Good seats. Texans behind us needed to leave. Annoyingly talking on phone and chatting. Weird!!

Dave's story-telling was the best it's ever been and each song was played with a lot of emotion. My girlfriend and I couldn't have asked for a better night.

This could have been the best set of rarities I've ever seen in a setlist. Last Little Red Bird ever to be played...it's ok it's not that good of a song but it was cool to see it. Friday night was more fun of a show but for this was a better setlist for the true enthusiast. Probably the most fun I've had at a show since Gorge '08.

Losts of repeats from the other nights, but didnt subtract from a great setlist, great energy, and some great davespeak

OSW intro was mind boggling

Terrible acoustics in the venue. Additionally, the seats we received from the Warehouse were a few rows from the rear of the house, on the far left aisle. The show was being video recorded, and a boom camera was blocking our view (poor though it may have been) for the entire performance.

This was my first Dave and Tim show, and it was fantastic. I really don't have any complaints about the performances. Dave was in a weird and goofy mood which came out in his stories. The sound could have been a little louder, at least from where I was sitting in the 3rd row center, but it did sound very good otherwise. The entire front row was made up of people who were given upgrades from seats in the back, and they were almost entirely beautiful ladies (a few guys made it in with their hot dates). I wish I could have seen the other two nights. Tim Reynolds' playing is just amazing to behold. He truly is a genius and his parts mesh perfectly with Dave's playing. 5/5

Here is what I thought of friday night: D and T were great, though the Crowd was full of people who were dumb, stupid, loud, ignorant, and did not know how to party with a conscious. I have seen 40 shows where dave has taken the stage and friday nights crowd was so horrible and so horrendous it made me want to hurt people( and I am in no way a violent person.) Dave plays beautifully complicated music for a bunch of drunkards that are so ignorant they did not even know that dave was making a mockery of them ( by what he was saying on stage) and all they kept doing was chugging their shitty beer, yelling, remaining completely oblivious to the people around them and even fighting... Saturday night the crowd was way better and Dave and Tim were Excellent. If you find this post offensive you most likely fall into the category of the not so wonderful people I have described above. I have and will continue to travel the world to watch Dave(Tim and The Band) do what they do... And to those of you people who do know how to party with a conscious, I love you.

awesome show last night. had some decent seats, just wish they were a little more center. thanks warehouse. dave and tim were on fire. my first dave and tim show. saw them do a mini-set to open for dave and friends in los angeles in 2004. the venue was perfect for an acoustic show, although getting into the parking structure off of the strip was a challenge. highlights were nancies, grace is gone, osw, love the intro, loving wings, christmas song, was really hoping to hear it, typical and two step to close was a perfect ending. also tim's solo doing kashmir was out of this world. dave did talk and told some funny stories. could have played a couple more songs instead, but he had fun with the crowd. was hoping for minarets, haven't heard since vegas 2001 and seek up but overall an amazing show and experience with my son andy. also saw larger than life in 3D the same day. it was great and i highly advise anyone who loves dmb to check it out. the 3D really makes you feel like you are on stage with the band.

An extra long performance to finish out the weekend. Kashmir was phenomenal. Other highlights were Typical Situation, One Sweet World Intro, Loving Wings and of course Christmas Song (which was a nice surprise when Dave didn't play it Thursday). Some good storytelling as well. Dave was also a bit more tame this evening (dropping a few less f-bombs) so my guess is this could be the cd (or DVD if one is released). Overall, the entire weekend was amazing!

I'd enjoy D&T 365 nights a year ... and afternoons and mornings too! ;-) Good, good time, my 51st Dave related show ... One Sweet Trifecta of D&T ...
"Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas...."
Thank you Dave & Tim ... oh! and everyone who makes any dMb-ish even happen. Finally talked with Fenton again...he was hard to find over '09 summer tour...thanks for the autograph on BWGK cd Fenton!

OK, I was waiting in line and scored a seat 3 rows behind orchestra in Row C. 8 rows from the front! Awesome.

26 songs, a couple great stories, and a helluva way to close the weekend!
Christmas Song was sick as hell.

There was some funny Davespeak tonight. I did get a kick out of Dave making a little bit of fun of people for cheering when he talked about snot or vomit or something. I swear he can say some really cheesy shit and, because it's Dave, people think it's great no matter what. Don't get me wrong, I totally love me some Dave and he is entertaining as anything to me, but I don't cheer every time he opens his mouth or if he just makes some stream-of-consciousness comment about navel lint or something.

Shout out to Lee, Lilly, and Michelle! You are all crazy as hell and fun.

Setlist:
Eh Hee - Very nice as an opener here.

Dancing Nancies - And the crowd went wild...you could tell it was about to be a special night.

Squirm - Dave busted out the 12 string...always good news.

Grace Is Gone - Lovely song

Alligator Pie - In the intro Dave mentioned that Fenton won $1000!

One Sweet World - Just wow.

Loving Wings - Another in a string of panty-dropper songs. Dave dedicated it to his wife so maybe I shouldn't say that. But it is.

Grey Street - More 12 string good news here

Tim Solo #1 - Tim tore it up. Any questions?

Oh - Solid song that the crowd only sorta seems to like for some reason.

Christmas Song (Dave dedicated this to his friend and called it "Eileen's Song") - The highlight of my weekend. You know how girls talk about how Dave "makes love to them through his music?" This song is what that's all about. It was nothing short of an epic song last night.

FTWII - 3 times in 3 nights...I could hear it again for breakfast today too.

Stay Or Leave - I, for one, am glad to see this song getting some playing time.

SMLAM - People tried to dance, but it musta been hard in parts of an acoustic version.

LITHOG - So good it'll make your ears bleed!

Bartender - Clearly D&T are enjoying themselves and just playing songs they want to.

Tim Solo #2 Started with some great noodling around and then turned into an incredible homage to Jimmy Page and Kashmir.

So Damn Lucky - I've said it before, in 2008/9 Tim Reynolds took this song from "Meh" to "!"

Little Red Bird - The intro story to this was about a catamaran, a bird "women's bits, and a pirate.

Save Me - We are soooo lucky.

You And Me - Not a dry panty in the house.

Crush - As a set closer?! Yes and it works.
Encore:

Some Devil (Dave Solo) - Pretty song this way

Typical Situation - Another WOW!

Sister - Pretty song and because it was here it was great because we all new it was NOT the end of the show.

Two Step - The guys just tore up some guitar playing together and ended on a heckuva "note."

The best and worst of the crowds tonight. The best in that during most of the quiet songs, especially early in the show, they were quiet. I had a few talkers around me, but not nearly like N1 and N2. Dave only made 2 comments about it tonight...get a clue folks, he doesn't like it when you yell at him...seems as though it sounds hostile to him much of the time. Well, he never really complains about the ladies...don't know if it's just him being chivalrous or if it isn't as "angry" sounding to him. I thought the poor guy next to me wasn't gonna do well, he was very drunk and swooning and sleeping on his arms before the show...dude was a trooper though and pulled himself together. I was just glad not to have him puke in my shoe!

The nearest usher to me turns out to be one of those 6 degrees of separation people for me. Very cool to meet him.

The venue is very good. Short lines for drinks, food, and bathrooms and it actually empties pretty quickly given the bottleneck design of the front doors. Biggest issue all weekend seemed to be the mad rush at the one smallish merch. booth for posters before the show.

Dave mentioned several times that he was enjoying himself and joked at one point "and he just wouldn't stop." Like he wanted to play all night.

OK, after seeing the setlist on almanac I'm a teensy bit bummed that we didn't get LIOG, and it looks like Dave was gonna try to go with After The Goldrush again.

Highlights for me were One Sweet World along with Gray Street and Typical Situation. Tim's solos were beyond words. It made me smile that all of the people who got up and left during Tim's performance missed a really good one. Finally, a word of advice for you people who think you should stand while everyone else is sitting down, GO SEE ANOTHER CONCERT!

Absolutely amazing. Seen Dave and Tim before individually, but this was the first D&T show.

Setlist was fantastic, second row seats amazing, crowd respectful and the davespeak better than I hoped for.

Superb!
