Amazing show! Almost a 3 hour set! I was down on the right side of the floor, about 1/3 of the way back. I think Stefan tipped the sound guys tonight...this was the best I've ever been able to hear him jam, and Fonz was on fire!! Felt like Boyd was a little quiet/under-mic'd on a few tracks. But overall amazing energy from the band! Rashawn is an ANIMAL! I love Stone as an opener, and Proudest Monkey-> Satellite is always a treat. Beautiful Crush, and Lawlor's jam on Cornbread was something really special. I'm guessing he'€™s with The Lumineers...maybe? Honestly, he could be from Nickelback for all I care...get that man on the summer tour! The Mercy jam/outro was really cool too. I hope they continue to play with that song and that it sticks around. 8 shows this year and all I can say is..."is it summer yet??"

Great show! A guy that tours with the band came out and played guitar on Cornbread, gave Tim a run for his money I felt.

Best light/video show I've ever seen at a DMB show.

A really fun show. Had the best seats I have ever had from the Warehouse (thank you!), and so we had a great view of the action. Lots of highlights (The Stone, BEF, etc.), though there was a lull in energy for a few songs .... The one thing that bothered me was - Boyd looked really bored for more than a few songs. Not sure what that was all about, but seeing him stand motionless on stage on a number of occasions, with his head down, was an energy-suck :( Overall, though, a fun time!

MUCH better than the Boston show. Did a great job keeping the crowd going this time. Who is the guy who played guitar with Tim on Cornbread? Setlist.fm said "Jeff Lawlor", but I don't know who he is. Should I?

One of the top two shows Ive been two. Very rare and awesome, The Stone was sick, new album sonds were great. Big eyed fish was awesome and the whole encore blew to venue away

Stone opener was great. The run through DIDO was solid. If Only is kind of dull live, Riff through Ants was a good good time. Last time I'd heard Stay, Roi was playing. Kind of bittersweet to hear it. Drunken Soldier is epic live, like the lasers at the end. Have heard Watchtower a few too many times, but any show that you get 4 BTCS especially on a new album tour is awesome! Don't usually make it to see the opener, but the Lumineers were great too!

Best seats I've ever had at a DMB show! What an awesome show - definitely one of my favorites! I agree with the comment about Boyd looking bored - especially in the beginning, not sure what that was about. I think every show could use more Boyd. Fantastic set list - loved everything expect for Spaceman which sounded like a bit of a mess to me. Haven't heard The Stone in forever!! And I liked pretty much everything they played off the new album. And the Lumineers opening was really great too!

Great venue. The new songs were very tight. Set list around them was awesome. Been going since 2000 and this was up there with the best nights. The boys sounded powerful Mercy outro was cool highlight

One of the all time best shows for me.... The Stone opener - right through until the last note was played. Non stop fun. amazing set list! Great crowd and venue. Had so much fun dancing and singing. It's been a great year of DMB. 2012 couldn't have been more fun with friends and family!

Incredible show, some of the highlights were proudest monkey spaceman into cornbread, loved big eyed fish into grey street and then the encore was amazing with DDTW into watchtower. Dave had everyone into it and was dancing more than ever.

I've been fortunate enough to be in attendance at more than a handful of epic shows in the last few years. C-Ville in '10, Atlantic City Caravan, Fenway in '06 to name a few. Although this particular show may not crack my top 10, in no way am I knocking it. Solid, great, fantastic, however you want to describe it, their performance in Manchester was worth every penny.

Solid set. Love the smaller venues for winter tours. Of the 3 shows I attended this tour this one ranks second behind Boston. Can't wait for summer tour!

Wow! What a special night. I was in GA and had a blast. I hope that the girl that i saw collapse a few times on the concrete is alright!

A fantastic evening with friends and DMB...I thought the Boston show was great but Dave and the Boys exhibited even more energy last night in Manchester. It is so much fun watching them having fun playing for their fans. Highlights: The Stone, BEF>Grey Street... really love Rooftop and Drunken Soldier live. 2012 should certainly be considered a great year for DMB. Can't wait until the summer tour begins.
