Very solid show. 2nd half of the set slowed down a bit ... The encore was dissapointing too. But the band sounded great.

Loved the show. JimiThing was great with sexy mo'fucka shaking that ass. I loved LITHOG and crash as well, and shake me like a monkey was energetic. Rapunzel closer was very unique. Overall great show!

Dave sticking his tongue out during scats was hilarious, and Tim Reynolds had a crazy solo on Cornbread.

Can't go wrong with Stone opener. On paper encore looks bad, but it really worked well this night. PM>OSW was a surprise. Loved Crush and Why I Am. Band sounded great.

It was my first concert! It was awesome! I really liked the stone to open! Mercy was a beautiful song. Wished the encore was different but all in all it was a great experience! Cant wait for my next show.

Set list left much to be desired in my opinion. The Stone opener- cool but eh, Crush, Shake me Like a Monkey, Crash into me- all excellent -very common for the last 5 shows I've gone to but awesome nonetheless. Jimmy Thing

Far exceeded my expectations for a night 1! Nice high energy set the whole way through, and the more mellow songs were good, not just bathroom break filler.
Would have been 5 stars if not for the weird Cornbread closer.

My first DMB show, and it was spectacular! The Stone opening was awesome, and they did a ridiculous almost 12-minute jam with Lying in the Hands of God, one that i'll never forget! Overall an awesome show, crowd was hyped and the band knew it and loved it.

Overall thought this was an amazing for a night one show. A lot of nice long jams from the band-stone opener, lying in the hands of god and arguably the best version of
Spaceman that will ever be played. Granny is always a ton of fun too. A+ show for a night one, even the new
Stuff sounded great and fit in well

Was asked by my DMBFF, Alex, to make a 16 hour trek out to Hartford two weeks before these shows, as she had someone back out on her last minute. Without hesitation I took a vacation day for the 25th, and that Thursday night we were headed out east from Illinois. I skipped out on the Chicago Caravan shows in 2011, so my last DMB experience had been N2 at Wrigley in 10, so my anticipation was high for my 24th and 25th shows, and I had heard a couple of the new songs and was anxious to hear them live.

The boys did not disappoint with The Stone opener and I rocked out until the Cornbread closer. Having recently turned 30, my body does not take well to shows like it did 5 or 6 years ago, but I can still keep up with the best of them. I liked the venue and the acoustics are great, but the fans are a bit more mellow than Im used to, being spoiled with Alpine and such. Im always disappointed to see people sitting during slower songs or songs they do not know. They need to realize that being at a DMB show is an experience like none other, and its a fucking privilege to be there, not to be taken for granted. However, the crowd was much livelier come night two..

What a great show, The Stone opening is always great for me. Also LITHOG was phenomenal, rain coming down during Crash was a great moment of the show. I also don't care when anyone says I will take Cornbread whenever and where ever I can get it
