Got my ticket [GA] at the Box Office, $85, no TM charges!

Found my own sweet dancing area on the floor and got lost in the songs. Just as it should be ;-)

I'm very accepting of whatever Dave and crew throw down. It's ALL GOOD!

Great energy, solid setlist. No guests was slightly disappointing, but it was a great show nonetheless. Little Red Bird was nice, he totally made up his own rhythm for it though!

Great setlist with a great opner one two punch with Big Eyed Fish and Rapunzle. and So Damm Lucky was a great ending. The Jimi Thing was great with the crowd singing the first 2 versus without Dave. Overall great show

First show after about a four year hiatus, but it was time to pass Dave onto my next generation and they still have it! I had been watching the set lists and knew that I was in for a heavy dose of newer stuff and would be lucky to get some older gems. Still, to get Rapunzel, DDTW, The Maker, Grey St., Jimi Thing, #41 and Ants was impressive. Was happy to get Cornbread and Time Bomb rather than something like Squirm and Spaceman. I was really not looking forward to LITHOG based on tapes of earlier shows, but it seems that they are really working out the jam on that one and Jeff came off well. Good interplay within the band - at one point, I was watching Boyd and Dave off in the corner of the stage laughing and joking around after a Boyd solo. All in all a much better show than people are making it out to have been.

Awesome energy from the band and crowd. Everybody went crazy during a lot of the songs. Not quite as good at Saturday, but come on, anything DMB plays will make a great show.

The show was nothing out of the ordinary... No real big movers or shakers like the few shows previous such as GGT. Most of the songs played have been over played during the tour. Overall I'd give it a 3.5 and it was cool to see the maker which I'd never seen before.

The GA was incredible. Jimi Thing and #41 jams were sick.
Digging a Ditch was really nice, dedicated to the two counselors who died.
Grey Street and Rapunzel also highlights
Was there with my mom and met Jeff Coffin!

This show was so much fun. My wife an I took our son to his first DMB show. We took the trains in from Manhattan. VIP pre-show. We got up close. Danced and sang all night. I almost got a drum stick. My son got a set list. #41 was awesome. I'm glad they released it on the Big Apple Bonus Disc.

This is why I always aim for night 2's. Nothing was WRONG with tonight's show, but it just wasn't great. Carter, Rashawn, and especially Boyd (I was actually wondering if he hadn't shown up halfway through the set) never really got a chance to strut their stuff. The setlist was ok, but the encore was very weak. Where was the big finish? It probably didn't help that as soon as Ants was over, half the crowd started streaming out of there.
On the bright side, tonight's Ants was by far the best version I've ever seen live (and that includes Central Park and 12/21/02). It's just a shame that the rest of the show didn't measure up.

Pretty good for the first night. I thought collectively the band was solid except for dave screwin up big eyed fish. LITHOG was sick and they are getting progressively better at the jam. Ants was awesome also.

Good show. Sound was below expected probably first 2 songs. The maker was good bit way too mellow.
Ants was amazing and I'm not a song fan. To me Time Bomb and SDL make excellent closers just not the most commercial radio ones and I appreciatte that.
N2 was better but this was a good one.

Went to this show with Matt Fitzpatrick and Jeanette. Great show. Ate Fiore’s in the parking lot to pregame. Was hot. Got High and had to sit down on field and eventually go the the bullpen and sit down. EMS came over and gave me gatorade, which woke me up. Was fine after that. Only Missed some of cornbread and the maker. Came back for Grey Street.

Annoying NY chick to my left told me a dumb story about how she saw DMB in Europe in '09 and they played Dont Drink the Water and she had a "really bad trip"...I taunted her when they played the Still Water Intro into DDTW and told that it would all be OK. We witnessed some pretty sweet dancing moves courtesy of the "Urban Cowboy". Decent show all around. Citi Field is really cool...want to come back to see a Mets game.

Great main set..lots of energy from the GA floor which helped. The only downside was the horrible choice of an encore..left everyone wanting more. I guess that's why we always have Night 2 tonight

Had a lot of fun at this show, which was my first of this tour, but the last of many in prior years. However, I have to give it a low rating because of the combination of absolutely stifling heat and humidity with the cattle herd of General Admission. Dave did his best to keep the energy up, but I doubt even his S. African roots prepared him for this torture. By the encore, I was so exhausted I barely cared what Dave played. Still, I had fun. Not the strongest setlist, but they played some old favorites well mixed with the new stuff.

So Dave seamed as if he was on something, but put on one hell of a show. After being disappointed for the bethel show he definitely redeemed himself. Jimi thing was one of the best versions Ive ever heard and #41 was a nice treat, I hope night 2 encore is a little better though

If I could separate the rating into two categories it would be:

Performance- 5 - The band killed it, every song(cept when dave screwed up the lyrics to i think grey street) was right on and the band sounded great.

p.s Carters into to Ants really tricked me into thinking they were going to play Halloween.....they didnt. O well hopefully i'll hear it one day.

Setlist selection - 2 - Besides PNP> Repunzel, pretty much a regurgitation of every show from the tour

Overall an eh show, still had a great time but ive seen better. Maybe it was the crowd which was just not into it, at least where I was. (section 506) Next time I go to a show like this, definitely going for GA tix. Crowd seemed more into it. As for the show highlights for me were grey street,repunzel and sexy mofo outro of Jimi Thing. Wasnt the best #41 ive heard. As for the encore time bomb was good and SDL had the Thank You outro which the audience DID NOT get into AT ALL. Like I said good show, had a great time, just not the best ive been to by any means.
Looking foward to tomorrow night which history tells us will be alot better.
