The band had a lot of energy at Mohegan Sun! Was their 1st show there & hope they will consider playing there again. Good set list but wish they played more off the big 3. The new songs were fantastic. Highlights include Typical Situation, Jimi Thing (which I believe had a brief Andy Griffith tease in it at the 8min mark), Big Eyed Fish -> Bartender, & Drunken Soldier! Dave voice was also great!

First time sitting behind the stage for a concert and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was able to see Carter rocking out so perfectly! The crowd had a lot of old people that wanted to sit the entire time but my group made up for that. Typical situation was the best song of the concert, just a magnificent jam sesh in there

Great show. Loved hearing the songs from the new album. Very upbeat and flowed really well. Was right up against the fence in front of Tim (between Dave and Boyd) and couldn't be any closer to the band.

Great show, but as a non-gambler, a casino resort as venue is too overwhelming.

Good show, Typical was worth the long drive. The set flowed pretty well from one song to the next, and the band seemed to do a pretty good job not taking up too much time between songs. I thought Shake Me Like a Monkey was a little disapointing after Typical. It sounded good though.

This was a great show, loved BEF, been waiting two years for that one. TS was awesome, for the 2nd time this year (heard @ Cruzan this summer). Got a little slow in the middle but the guys did a great job picking things back up and really giving the crowd a solid finish. Loved Dave's remarks about gambling, and glad I didn't loose my ass (actually won over $400 after the show). Crowd around us was pretty good (sec 15), some people wanted to sit behind us, I had to apologize since I was all about standing and grooving to the beats. So glad we made the trip. Venue could have done better with placement of beer/drink vendors around the perimeter, since it lended to a lot of bottle necking trying to get in.

very solid show, thought the set was done after DDTW...then after Shake Me...guys were on stage for a little over 3 hours. heckuva set, new stuff sounds great live, loved the venue, too...all in all a great night. Jimi Thing ain't half bad as a closer. also was sitting like 2 rows away from the band, unreal seats.

An amazing show, it was great to hear the new album live! Very long show, last 4 songs were all jammed-out, each at least 12 minutes long. Plus, I heard Christmas Song f=live for the first time in my life! Amazing show

Great show, not thrilled with Mohegan's sound. Small arena and I've seen several (other) shows there. Sound for louder bands can be a little distorted and vocals can be difficult to pick up. Setlist was great and the band rocked. Would be a 5 if it wasn't for the sound. It was built as a basketball arena and I don't think much consideration was given to acoustics. Also, ticket prices tend to be a lot higher than other area venues. That was a good thing though as it was an older crowd devoid of all the drunk kids you see at the Meadows in Hartford in the summer. Highlights for me were If Only (favorite on AFTW) and Typical, which has eluded me since 2000. Drunken Soldier was fantastic also but the end reminds me so much of Pink Floyd's "Breathe" that at one point I swore they were going to go into it. They've played "Money" before, so it wasn't too far-fetched of a thought!

Awesome show, but not the best I've been to. The lights were killer, and I thought that they were better than the big triangle things this summer. Big Eyed Bartender was amazing, and so was that Typical jam. The FTWII was pretty bad with that straight intro, I hope they never do that again. Still had a awesome time.

Very hard for the board guys to do anything with that venue. Those small arenas make it very difficult

only bad thing to comment - no tailgating - just a casino, but made it work ;)

I thought that this was an excellent show. They threw a few different songs into the mix from this first week of the brief winter tour, but a heavy dose of Away From the World was featured. I'm loving the new songs and they're all even better live than in the studio. The crowd around us was a little subdued at times, but we danced and bounced around all night. Everyone was great; some people just like to chill and soak in the music. I know that some people think Dave is sometimes too self-indulgent with his offerings, but hearing that a show "sucked" or worse while walking out of the venue is mind-boggling. You pay for what you get; for me hearing the boys live and seeing them having fun is all I ask.

First let me say the band was great. The energy was amazing and the crowd was giving the boys plenty of energy. I thought the first 3 songs broke the "are they going to play the entire new album" tension and made the set list more enjoyable.

Now, onto the worst section in the arena...119. NO ONE STOOD UP! No one was dancing and having a good time. It was a to tap buzz kill section. The lights go out, Dave takes the stage and its golf claps! I was screaming and people were looking at me like I was crazy.

The highlight for me was when Dave began Mercy and the girl next to me said "finally he is playing the good songs". No joke and no lie. This was AFTER Eh He, Bartender and Big Eyed Fish. I wanted to strangle her right there.

Other than that I loved the set list. Great mix of old and new and. I especially liked the irony of playing DDTW at an Indian reservation. Bartender is my all time favorite song and its a treat to hear it. The new album sounded great, Drunken Solder sounded great and so did Rooftop. I was especially excited and blown away at the actual guitar parts of the new album. Very technical.

All in all the album was very studio but the oldies mixed in broke up the set list well and complimented the new songs well. I was happy they weren't stacked and I found myself excited to hear the new album again. Something I can't say for FTWIS.

Great versions of Typical and Big Eyed Fish but the away from the world overload stopped this from being a 4 or 5.
