Honestly feel this is one of the best shows I have seen. The Set List was amazing and the versions of the songs played were clearly classic DMB. They all looked so in to it. Would love to see this as a Live Trax.

I thought this show was very well put together. The set definitely catered to the hardcore ants rather than the casuals. Which completely fine in my book. Thrilled to hear write a song, shotgun, WTWE, and recently. DDTW hit very hard which was nice. Only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars is that BOYD had no features and shake me was weak.

Worst DMB show I have been too. The band seemed completey disorganized and not at all into the show. The set list was the worst of the tour and maybe the worst for the past couple of tours. Dave screwed Pittsburgh especially when you consider he only did one show instead of the normal two.

Show left much to be desired in my opinion. No movers or shakers. Couple decent song selections, but nothing that got me going.

Awesome show. What You Are as the opener. Warehouse was great, but no woos. Captain, When the World Ends, Everday, So Right, Cry Freedom. You Might Die Trying. All great tunes.

Liked the variety of this show compared to previous years, and it was my birthday! Always love hearing Shotgun live, but ending the encore with SMLAM was a huge disappointment. It didn't help that the set list the next day in Ohio was a 5/5.

Front row between dave and Fonz. Dave said I smelled very good and katie n i think he dedicated sister to u because he searxhed the front row amd then pointed at both of us before he played it?

Solid show with folky beginning set list that then branched out. Cry Freedom a highlight, as well as Recently. Warehouse taken back to the roots with no woos. JTR was a nice touch and done really well and tight.

Another great show by DMB. Maybe it was just me, but it felt like this show was shorter than others in the past. Was great hearing some of his less played songs at the concert.

Not sure what show all these other reviewers were attending but this show was the worst one have seen in the 20 years I have been a DMB fan. The best word I have found to describe it was used already: "uninspired". The setlist didn't flow and the crowd never got into the show. I believe this was because of the setlist. Although they broke out some rarities that you never hear there was no energy and it seem like they mailed in the preformance. All in all very disappointing.

Great atypical upbeat setlist with awesome flow to it. Band had tremendous energy from beginning to end. Not seeing 2step, ants, billies, or jimi in a show was such a breath of fresh air. Great show!

This show left a lot to be desired....with a what you are and warehouse opener I thought I was in for an epic night....then the setlst was all over the place. When the world ends was awesome as well as everyday which never gets old and DDTW is a classic. YMDT is also another good one and the new songs were good as well. But overall out of 13 shows this ranks towards the bottom and this was the worst encore I've ever seen. You don't end a show with SMLAM and recently is a good song but not in the encore. Oh we'll not every set can be perfect....on to the next

Great show from start to finish...highlights were Write A Song, JTR, Snow Outstide, Shotgun, Cry Freedom, and Recently. Enjoying these diverse setlist this year. Wish it was more than one night though at Burgettstown...

DMB is always enjoyable, but probably the least impressive or exciting show I've been to. Saw a few new songs, but there was an element of focus and energy missing I thought. A lot of that stems from the crowd imo which I thought was pretty talkative and unengaged. Man do I love shotgun though

From the opener on the crowd waited to get into the show and it never happened. Not a fan of all the Everyday songs and Shake Me to close is really weak. Probably the most disappointing show I've been to.

This is a show I've had different opinions on over the years. It was the first year they've only done one night in Burgettstown and my initial thought was it was very disappointing in comparison to the 2 nights they used to do. In hindsight, though, I do like that there wasn't a lot of hits last night and it was mostly spent playing deep tracks and rarities. It was great hearing What You Are as an opener and my first Why I Am! SMLAM encore closer definitely put a damper on the evening though.

I've seen a lot of shows, and this show and setlist was a little sleepy for me. Of course it was amazing, but on the grand scale, it just hit in the lower-middle of my DMB show history

Crazy energy. Railed center stage. Shotgun was amazing! Carter signed a drumhead for me after the encore. I can't think of any way any show could top this.

I would hafta say in my top 3 out of 24. Was in the Pit about 5 rows of people back, people I met were great besides the one psychotic girl that everyone kept ripping on the entire time near the front who kept asking people to give her space. I don't think she realized where she was. Unique setlist.

The boys were tight at this show. Good to see them having fun on stage, as always. Write A Song was great, the screen show for Rooftop was phenomenal, and the crowd was awesome. I hope Burgettstown gets back to 2 shows next year!

Overall, great show! I really enjoyed the What You Are then Warehouse 1-2 to open the show.

Other highlights for me: Cry Freedom, Don't Drink the Water, So Right, JTR and Recently. The band seemed to be enjoying themselves. Just wish we would have gotten a 2 nighter!

Best Everyday, I've heard in a long time. Nice to see JTR back in the setlist. I luv the electric Recently.

Tight set. Not as "jammy" as I like, but the band was tight, and I got to meet Boyd afterwards. Great mix of the old and new, and I love that Jeff and Rashawn are staying more true to Leroi's original horn parts on JTR. Meaning that the trumpet and sax are emulating the Lillywhite Sessions and 2000/2001 parts that Leroi played. This was a fantastic decision.
