If any of the band members happen to read the reviews for this show: Thanks you. I was in the pit night 1 with a blue sign with Minarets on it. Tonight was my 53rd show. 1st time hearing Minarets. If my sign had anything to do with that I am exceptionally grateful. (I'm grateful regardless, but even still I say it!)

What was most special about tonight, in addition to my 1st Minarets, was that I got that "what are they going to play next" feeling for the first time in years. A huge number of classic songs that I hope to hear. Seek up, DIDO!, Halloween, Ants, TB, Jimi Thing, Crush, etc... a set built around the hopes of long time DMB fans. Great energy. Thanks guys!

amazing show for night 2. The band high energy. Was bummed out by the Halloween tease night 1 before they ended up playing ASTB>Too Much. Had a feeling they were setting us up for night two, and they didnt disappoint. There were a few of us in sec 4 who got the chant going. Was disappointed with the crowds reaction. This is a song not played in Massachusetts sine 98...almost 14 years. I dont a lot of folks were thrilled to here it. I remember when they played it a SPAC in 09, I swear I could feel the balcony shake from below. People just circling the isles not knowing what to do, strangers just high fiving each other. Last night most fans were like "uhh"; too bad for them, but good for us halloween fans.

Awesome set list tonight. Two solid nights from the band, a lot of BTCS which is great.

Grace is Gone, Eh hee, Stay or Leave, Squirm, Out of my hands... All great for me tonight. Halloween never gets old! Great energy from the band, good vibes from The MA crowd. Also, a big thank you to Jeff Coffin for returning my appreciation *peace*!

Although I loved that it was a deep track show, I wanted my guests to be able to recognize more songs. Otherwise it was a great show as usual!

I was completely blown away by this show! The energy was UNBELIEVABLE and the set list was fantastic (and bipolar)! I loved having no idea what the hell they might pull out next. Not one disappointing moment in the entire evening!

The way the band fed into the crowd and into each other was what made this show great. The set list was great, Boyd was as lively as I've seen, and Dave seemed genuinely playful and happy to be involved with everything they were doing. That show was played with enthusiasm, and it made it one of the best I have been to in recent years. I would love to have this show as a LiveTrax- it was that good.

Great sounding show. Crazy run of Seek Up/Minarets. DIDO was an awesome surprise I hadn't heard it 10 years. Old school Jimi Thing outro. Tonight at times felt like the olden times of DMB. Also there were only 3 Big Whiskey songs all night. Weird that they were played 3 in a row. And they didn't come until the end of the set. Funky! And the encore... I have now heard Halloween twice in 2 weeks.. I AM NOT WORTHY!

What an amazing show! The guys were really into it tonight. I love hearing the classics as well as the new stuff. Just amazed at how tight the band was. I brought my ten year old son to his first show ever, we were in the third row and after that performance I dont think anything he goes to will live up to it. Job well done...thank you.

Excellent N2, I knew N1 would be hard to top, but I wanted to see Seek Up, Jimi thing, Crush was terriffic - Ants is always amazing no matter how many times I see it. Enjoyed Halloween>Billies even though I just saw that @ Hartford. So much fun dancing and singing all night!

Completely different feel from N1, but completely fantastic in its own way. Minarets into Seek Up, it was like 1993 at Trax all over again. Killer encore but Crush just killed it tonight.

BOYD WAS ON FIRE TONIGHT!!!!!! He always seems to make shows. Grace opener was great. Minarets and seek up were beautiful. DIDO, was a pleasant surprise. Grey Street is always fun. Encore was cool too even tho I have already seen it.C Can't forget ANTS also , I can see that a thousand times and always love it. My friend got a drumstick on his BDAY to top the night off phenomenal two shows overall and so worth it.

An outstanding show! Grace is Gone certainly established from the beginning that Dave and the boys were psyched once again to be playing in the Boston area. Minarets>Seek Up and then eventually Crush>Drive In Drive Out absolutely spectacular! Just loved Halloween>Tripping Billies. I can't wait for N2 in Saratoga.

Last row before the lawn, but still a great view/great sound. Grace is Gone a good start, but long version of Seek Up the highlight for me. Only the second time I have heard it in 28 shows, last time Dublin 2010, happy times....!

Best show so far out of the 9 have been to. It's honestly going to be hard for SPAC to beat this one out, although it probably will. Grace is Gone was a big surprise for an opener and I was absolutely blown away when I heard them play Minarets. Fantastic version! Seek Up was of course another highlight of the night. And even though I saw it coming, my first ever Halloween was quite a treat. Great energy coming from Mansfield, happy to call it my home venue!
