Some rough songs but the energy was unbelievable... especially for lawn

First set was amazing. Love that Dave comes out and plays solo to start! The Stone was the highlight of set one for me. Second set was solid. Cornbread and Can't Stop back to back was a little rough. Cortez was amazing as always! That was my 3rd time seeing it live! Band sounded great! Dave was chatty last night too and danced a lot! One song encore left most wanting more though. That was my first one song encore and I hope it is my last. Billies was good, just not enough to meet the anticipation during the encore break. Overall, another solid DMB show in the books. Not my favorite show I have been to, but also not even close to the worst I have seen. Enough to keep my coming back for sure!

Cortez was worth the price of admission alone!

Awesome show! Fun setlist, the lights were sweet and getting to see Warren Haynes was too cool.

If you never saw Dave before, this would have been a great first show. But when you have and have waited to hear something rare and they play the greatest hits, it's deflating. I love this band but I was disappointed. Warren or not.

Proudest Monkey, Satellite, and Mercy all in the same night is a snooze fest. Acoustic set was great however. Seeing Cortez with WH not worth them removing Jimi from the electric set and Sister and Granny from the encore.

Some solid stuff always love One Sweet World Cortez was epic really like the Typical rendition. One song encore was a bummer and Cornbread follows me everywhere I go. But as usual I had a blast.

I need to stop seeing shows here. Not really worth the time. Best part was Warren Hayes. Couldn't believe when I saw the set list the next morning they had taken out Jimi, Granny, and Sister. Would've made the show much better but I don't think the band really likes playing here. You can tell the fan base isn't very strong.

Setlist this... setlist that... I get caught up in it too. Bottom line is these guys play out their hearts every night. Sometimes you need to put your beer down, stop talking, and just listen and watch. It's worth every penny!

Cortez the Killer

Cortez was absolutely killer, though probably a bit long. Was pretty bummed by the one-song encore, but there were some gems as well that I really enjoyed. STJL, Bartender, The Stone, Typical, and Billies were money.

Great energy, strong setlist. One song encore was kind of a bummer, crowd was obviously caught off guard, chanted "one more song." Killed the buzz a bit but still an excellent show start to finish.

The PNC venue is nothing special, but I am loving the last 2 DMB shows. Last night's acoustic set was one of the best runs I've seen in my 29 shows: Butterfly was a first for me, Bartender, Stone, One Sweet World, Jane, and Typical Situation were highlights, all in the acoustic set. It was nice to get a DDTW opener again (last one for me was in 2009). Warren on Cortez was about a 20 min jam, which was beautiful. Ants closer was a lot of fun, crowd was going crazy. One encore was disappointing, they had a few more minutes to play Grey Street or Granny or even Best Of What's Around. Overall, one of my favorite shows, maybe in my top 5.

Pretty average show. The obvious stand-out was Cortez, but the whole acoustic set was pretty great.

Great show but the encore was only 1 song which left me feeling slighted

Wow, great people met yesterday had another amazing expierence. Cops were a little tight poor kid next us got a minor possession. Show I loved this acoustic set so much. Closing with typical wow it sounded great. Few repeats hurt but worked out for a respite. Got a why I am first of tour maybe then can't stop and Cortez was hoping for blue water. Yes the one song encore suxs it always does but it happens. Show was still great and the weekend for me as a whole was another amazing dmb run. Thank y'all kit,vin, and j9 can't wait to have y'all in the south land

Cortez!!!

This was an interesting show. The acoustic set was fantastic and then the electric set opened with one hour of crap. The show had dropped to a 2 with the string of songs until Warren came out. That last hour was outstanding. So 2 out of 3 hours ain't bad. As far as the one show encore - Folks there is an 11 PM curfew. When they finished the set at 10:48 - it was going to be only a one song encore. Cortez ran too long is my guess and something got cut. But wasn't it worth it :)

My first show of 2015 and there signs of hope, and then the walls came crashing down. Just a total waste with Warren. 30 minutes of Can't Stop and Cortez. Just killed what up until that point was a pretty solid set. Ants/Billies combo at the end was fun though. ~side note. Although somewhat intimate setting when you have seats, this is an overall shitty venue. Come back to Scranton!

Went to this show with Andrew Appell. He called me and gave me a free ticket. Was a great show and a great venue. A pint to get to, but a fun time. Was able to get Raven a ticket, and Aj made passes for us to get into the lounge. Great set list. Was great to check out this venue. Mel, the driver, did not show up to pick us up to go home. Ended up being a nightmare to get home taking the train. I would go back to this venue to see a show

Great acoustic set. Solid electric set. Cortez was definitely the highlight of the show, and my first time getting to hear it with Warren. Band showed a lot of energy and Dave in particular was chatty and dancing the whole show.

P good show overall. The acoustic set was really strong. Bartender, Stone, OSW, Song that Jane likes and Typical Situation are almost enough to give this show a 5. Hard to believe the electric set was so slow, but it just never got going, until of course Cortez. Been chasing that since the release of CP so truly enjoyed that moment. Couldn't believe how long they let Warren jam it out as well. Strong finish from there and kudos to the crowd. Last two years at PNC have had lots of energy. Certainly something left to be desired, but for my 1 show this year I will take it.

Good show with some great songs. Would have been better if it wasn't for that buzzkill in the middle (Mercy, then wasting Warren on Can't Stop) and the one song encore.

Acoustic set was excellent - loved every song. Cortez the Killer was the highlight of the night; Warren and Timmy killed it. One song encore due to curfew is a bummer, but DMB midweek is never a disappointment.

One of the best shows I have ever seen
