crowd was a little disappointing for such a historically rich venue.

Considering the clunker setlists this tour I was happy with what we got. Loved hearing JTR, but so sick of Watchtower. I would be happy if they never played it again. If they had just ended with Time Bomb I would have been happier.

Not a bad show... just not great. I've gone to both Bethel shows, and I have left both times wanting. Great LIOG, decent Big Eyed -> Bartender... just not a truly great show overall.

Great show! Bethel Woods has the BEST sound of any venue I have been to in recent times. Highlights for me were Big Eyed Fish, JTR, Lie in Our Graves and Good, Good Time.

This show was the Little Engine that Could. Started off really slow - but then just killed it. Ridiculous energy! Jeff did Roi proud tonight just rocking some songs, and Boyd during LIOG was off the hook. Got to hear songs that I haven't heard in years! Good Good Time was longer than a tease but not quite a full version. They also never finished LIOG. This one was definitely not for your average radio listener. First time at Bethel and probably one of the lamest and tamest crowds. Section 6 sat down for almost the entire show and security asked me to sit down half-way through squirm. I politely declined and didn't sit until I got back to my car. Now, on to VABeach for the last show of the summer.

Bethel, really nice venue! Show so good loved hearing The Maker, and Good Good Time. Oh and LIOG after 9 years without hearing it. Watchtower played in stone's throw of the site of Woodstock made it kind of epic as a closer. Oh and loved Dave's story about the bee-sting on his thumb, 'looks like a sausage!' hope he feels better!

Seventh Dave Show. What a venue! It left me speechless as did the boys performance. Yet another Epic show. Coffin blew my mind with his solos especially in Bartender (first time ever hearing this live). Amazing cover of The Maker. JTR for Kenny, Finally! Cant Stop amazing.

best setlist of the year so far, without a doubt...encore was a little weak, reminds me of spac. the maker was a nice surprise, as was LIOG which was the best song on the setlist.

Great show as usual. Good Good Time was amazing but I was pissed they did not do the reprise for LIOG.

Overall: Great set with an average encore and the band sounded awesome.
Big Eyed Fish>Bartender, Pig was a highlight. LIHOG through JTR was incredible!!!! Love DDTW every time! Boyd was on fire tonight and loved that he was featured a bunch instead of Tim dominating every song. Lie In into Cornbread was sick and Ants was as classic as ever. The encore was expected. Watchtower is the new Stay and although it is always good I have seen it 5 times and would kill for Rapunzel. The fact that they did not reprise the last verse of Lie In, just left me wanting MORE!!!!!

Other than the partial Good Good Time, i haven't much to say. The return of The Maker and LIOG was not what I was hoping for... would rather hear Bayou TWICE in the same set than Maker...hoping for a little better in Scranton(my hometown show) tonight

I was so excited for this because i had never seen DMB outside of SPAC..expectations were high and i was a tad disappointed..he opened with Squirm for the second consecutive time and pretty much played a combo of night 1 and 2 from spac. first time hearing Bartender and Big Eyed so that was memorable.. JTR, Maker and LIOG made the night amazing..the setlist seemed to just fly by after that with a short Eh Hee..but the encore was great with Good Good Time and Time Bomb into Watchtower just ended it perfectly

Average show for DMB. LIOG, Pig, and Good Good Time were the highlights for me. Portions of the show just seemed to fizzle out along with the crowd at times. The venue sucked. People were complaining that we were STANDING. Then security literally told us to sit down...really? If you wanna sit for the whole show than buy a DVD.

Solid set but seemed to lose a bit at the encore. glad to see boyd finally get some spotlight. First show I've seen all summer so I left happy, but I'm hoping for something a little bit better at Citifield.

A show for true dave fans - a lot of more rare songs. the rain seemed to make for a more sedate crowd.

Loved this show! JTR and Pig made my night. GGT was a sweet surprise as well. I was hoping to hear JTR again once more on this tour so, I was very happy! Dave was very silly tonight and Boyd was on fire! Graves was crazy thanks to Boyd in my face. :)

For everyone whom said the energy was low, WHAT? I was 2nd row center and it was adrenaline overload down there! Awesome show and I loved the venue.

ps, shows without a pit are so much better

Great set list! The band was full of energy. Boyd was ON FIRE. LIOG was an awesome surprise. Crowd was very lax, but you can't compare crowds at Bethel to venues like SPAC and larger more popular venues. And who cares about the crowd, I went to see DMB, not the crowd. This show was better than both nights of SPAC.

If this was the only show you saw this summer, myabe a good time. For anyone that has seen the band the last week, a very weak set. Same songs from Hershey and Pittsburgh recycled; nothing special. Debuting the Maker was also a swift kick tonight. Highlight for me was a partial Good Good time, which should tell you everything you need to know......

Better set list than SPAC N2. JTR, Pig, BEF->Bartender, all great. Boyd tearing up LIOG was probably the highlight of the night. Good Good Time.

I would list this show as a negative if that was possible, it was simply that awfull. If this was your only show of the summer, you left happy tonight, but this set was simply as lazy as it gets. Dave just copied the sets from Hershey and Pittsburgh and played them again to night while throwing the crowd a bone with LIOG after fucking shitting all over them with the maker. This show can be summed up in two words....fucking terrible!

4 stars. Trying to offset the guy who put one star though.

Solid show, solid venue.

Can't wait for the citifield shows!!!
