More energy in the crowd than N1, which makes sense. More even and explosive set. All the whiny anti-rain people just need to loosen up. Anyway for this show, better than N1 regardless.

Warehouse, Big Eyed Fish->Bartender, and BRASS MONKEY were highlights. I didn't see anyone who wasn't completely blown away by Brass Monkey.

It was good, not great. DMB was really into it, but there was a lull during the show of 4 straight slower songs. The Warehouse > SMTS > Brass Monkey > Too Much > Ants was possibly the best 30 minutes of show I have ever seen. EPIC!

Best of the four shows I have attended. Jimi Thing nailed. Good blend of old and new. Great extended ending to Two Step encore. Sax player brought his A game.

Great energy from the band, much better than night one. Solid but not spectacular setlist, but this was a great example of why the setlist alone doesn't always reflect the quality of the show.

Amazing night. Great songs and performance. In my opinion the weather was perfect but that might have been because night 1 was brutal.

Twas a fun show. BEY > Bartender was awesome as always. So Right was the highlight for me. LIOG was a blissful summer evening moment. Funny's intro made it such a better song. Ants/Two Step closers are always welcome. 3.8

Very slow jamming night. The section I was in was horrible. Most of the people were sitting down which took away some of the mood. Very soulful performance from Dave and the boys.

I thought the band was firing on all cylinders tonight. So Right was a nice treat. Great mix of old/new. The classics were all solid. Def fun to hear the Stop-time intro to WH (woo!). Nice tribute to the Beastie Boys. Carter went absolutely nuts on Two Step. Can't wait to get a copy of the show.

This my elevnt show in 6 years and I'd have to right in the bottom 3. Added: Was disappointed in the unreleased songs not being good. At all. Jimi Thing what happened? They did not do the "new" ending shake your ass. Bartender was the best version I've ever seen, So Right was sick, Two Step again was missing the new killer ending, the first encore song from the new album was not great. Overall, maybe 2-4 songs were typical rocking, power Dave. Normally over half the songs are intense. When I saw them last year in NY, they were slightly better. I hope they can get back to being as insane as they were from 2002-2010

Great tailgate! Saw a lot of people at the show I have not seen in years. It was a lot of fun and hearing Brass Monkey and the new tunes were highlights. Excellent job on both nights. They just keep getting better and better.

Show was awesome but traffic was so crappy going in that I will NEVER go back there again! If I'm going to drive 3 1/2 hours for a show, I might as well just do SPAC!

This is the best the band has sounded in a long time. Seems like they didn't want to leave the stage tonight. Dave's voice especially on the high notes sounds phenomenal. Out of My Hands is such an underrated song. It was one of the most powerful moments of the night. Write a Song has a ton of potential. Two Step finale was amazing. Carter looked and sounded like a super hero. Warehouse, SMTS > Brass Monkey > Too Much intro > Ants.......EPIC!!!
