Had a spinning good time. The hall was empty for Cliff. GA is locked to. The floor so the beer line is outrageous. I agree with previous reviews.

Wow! Show number 45 and it was quite cool to hear all of AFTW. Carter and Stefan were on all night and drove the show in my opinion. Can't wait for tonight!

Being the opening night of the tour, a run through the whole album was pretty much expected, with a mix of some old favorites and maybe even one super rare one in there. The set was pretty much safe outside the new album, but Space Between was a first for me. I didn't think they would bust out Drunken Soldier the first night either so that was definitely a treat and it sounded awesome. My only gripe of the show would be (beside not bringing out something they haven't played in forever) is the Mercy < Out of My Hands section. Not that they are bad songs, but they bring the energy down for a good 10-12 minutes, and I have seen it before. Besides that, an excellent and fun show, and night two was even better!

Very good show to start - surprised (but not badly) to hear the entire album played. All songs well represented but now it'll be interesting to see what expands and grows. Otherwise relatively standard setlist, but good show.

Respectable 4 out of 5! Pretty cool to hear the whole album in one show. Good mix of songs in between AFTW as well. Nancies, DDTW, Grey St, Watchtower, etc. looking forward to tomorrow night

So awesome to hear them play so much from the new album- 80th show and loving the new stuff live and seeing them have fun. Didn't hear much reference to Sandy which I thought was weird, but overall stellar first night.

It was great hearing all of the new album, especially belly belly nice, snow outside and drunken solider. Dancing nancies and seek were also great.

Playing the entire new album was a surprise and could have been good, but frankly it seemed like a live rehearsal. I don't think they practiced this together before the tour. Kind of unprofessional.

Away from the World played in its entirety. First time they played a whole album. As a result, show lacked flow with all new songs.

Loved hearing all of AFTW almost in order. Floored and thrilled by Drunken Soldier. My 20th show and got my first Space Between. Seek Up was the highlight of the night for me. Great vibe, lots of energy. Thanks, guys!

The band started off strong. Seek up was great. They slowed the show down almost to a halt with all the new slow songs but still was a great show! Can't believe they played the entire album! Watchtower, NANCIES, Grey Street and Two step are always welcome ;) Can't wait to see them at the Barclays Center for their first show there and their last show in PA.

Very cool to hear the entire album in one show. What a rarity.
New songs sounded great. First time seeing several songs live.
Rooftop, Snow Outside sounded awesome. Drunken Soldier was really incredible. Wow!

Great show, very unique - loved the new material love, especially Drunken Soldier. Loved the space between solo. Grey street was incredible. Pretty good crowd, though some jabbers behind me in 127 row 12 - you know who you are!

I enjoyed the energy and hearing the new songs. I've been to enough shows that I was OK with not having all classics. A little weird that he didn't introduce the band (not like we didn't know who they were) and he didn't mention anything about the show being for Sandy relief.

Had a great time! Kind of odd hearing the entire album but Drunken Soldier sounded great and Snow Outside was great! Hopefully they mix it up more tomorrow! The Mercy>OOMH combo has to go. I like Mercy and feel like they only play OOMH because Dave is sitting at the piano and why not? Other than that I really enjoyed the show!

first show of dave's winter tour, 100% of the proceeds go toward hurricane sandy relief...fun show, Dave played his entire away from the world cd...awesome to hear all those songs live...sprinkled in nancies, grey street, watchtower and two step, great show for solid Dave fans

AFTW Live. Seek Up. Nancies. Grey. DDTW... Not the BEST show I've seen, but the most unique. At times it even seemed the band was figuring some things out as they went along...at least to me it did. And I loved seeing that and seeing them experiment and having a great time. Can't wait for tonight. One negative is people forgetting they're not at a coffee house and talking the whole show or needing 500 pictures on their cell phones so I get to watch the show on your droid screen. Enjoy the live show, folks!

I'd rate it more toward 3.8, but not full 4. The band played well, but it wasn't my favorite collection of song choices. It could've been worse I guess, like we could've heard Can't Stop (but we did hear Out of My Hands, and that's just as painful). It would've been nice to hear Tripping Billies...>Halloween like the 2nd-night people got to hear, but we got Dancing Nancies and Grey Street which were awesome. Broken Things and Belly Belly Nice were a lot of fun too, and it was neat to hear a whole album played in one show. It's always special when I get to witness a rare or "first-ever" type song or show. I'm addicted to Snow Outside and I had my own little triumph when they played it in the encore. It was like they saved it for last just for me. Its little guitar riff is catchy and the 6/4 time makes it fun for foot-tapping.

I'm glad I was there for this, but it doesn't change that a playthrough of AFTW wasn't a great idea. It just didn't flow well, and the crowd seemed lost too with all of the new songs.

It was cool to see the whole AFTW album in one night and in order besides Snow Outside but i think he couldve had a better setlist. Whatever Can't complain

Seek Up, jam into \"Out of My Hands\", Sweet, Grey St through If Only, Gravedigger tease into Watch Tower, & Two Step closer - all deserve special mention New album tunes fitting in well. 19th show w/ #20 following tonight. DMB came on at 8:35, ended around 11:30. Seemed shorter than 3 hours, but then again most good times go too fast.
