Awesome show... Dave and the guys played their heart's out but didn't stay too long

Dave certainly brought the energy to make up for the atrocity that was Mansfield. My old man and I loved Typical Situation staying in rotation and that Pig opener was great. Sucks we got another one song encore, maybe time management is key for the rest of the tour. Nonetheless, it was a great show in a lackluster tour.

Had a great time. Short encore was disappointing, but highlights included Seek Up, Pig opener, Typical Situation jam, and YMDT closer.

Poop on top of Poo. DMB took a dump on Mansfield and then proceeded to take a dump on Hartford the next day. What happened to his band. So lazy with the set and basically going through the motions....so dissappointed

The second half of this show had awful flow. They'd play a great song and immediately decimate any energy they had built up. Pair that with a one song encore and it'll leave people with a bad taste in their mouth. Also stop playing Seven at every show.

Amazing show! Pig, Seek Up Grey Street, Minarets, Repunzel, Typical Situation, and Watchtower closer. That\'s tremendous! They had planned Dive In and Tripping Billies, but ran out of time. Energy of the band and the show was off the scale! Top it off with a Boyd autograph... wow what a show!

Show flow was awful. 1 song encore is always disappointed, especially to to learn it was supposed to be >Billies. Luckily, Typical saved the day.

Pig opener!

Band sounded good, especially Carter. Crowd was terrible in my opinion. I should expect that with Hartford, every year it seems to get worse with the drunken idiots (not soldiers). Not everywhere can be SPAC I suppose. Set list was a roller coaster ride but I enjoyed it for the most part!

I was so psyched about pig, and then the rest of the show just kept being great!

After the previous night at Mansfield, this was a welcome show. Pig opener got me off and running and some of the usual suspects in unusual spots was a nice enough upgrade from a disappointing show the night before.

18th Show!

Really fun show. Pig opener was awesome. Monkey, Crash, Seven and Seek Up made a great opening run, OOMH was ok, especially with an improv outro. Midset Rapunzel was the tits and Samurai Cop was a definite highlight. Bob Law was actually pretty cool, and Typical was the peak of the evening. Die Trying was ok, and one set encore was disappointing. That and If Only were the only negatives. Would have loved a Dive In, Break Free, Last Stop, or Shotgun in this set to take it over the top. Was with a friend who was at his 2nd show. He loved it.

First time at Xfinity Theatre, pretty good atmosphere. Loved the set, opening stretch was a real treat and I was very excited to hear Out Of My Hands (especially since seeing the piano this tour we're assuming Bob Law), Digging a Ditch and You Might Die Trying which is one I love. Was hoping for Shotgun, Break Free, or Idea of You; hopefully they continue to pull those out this tour, particularly at SPAC

Killer show with an awesome set list, energy, flow to the night. So many high points from start to finish with only one real dog If Only. OK, I get that they had to play this on the away from the world tour but there\'s no reason this song should ever see the light of day again. Just a horrendous song that brings the energy to a screeching halt. Regardless, this show definitely gets a five star vote.

Great set list on paper. Didn't think it had good flow. Not a fan of coming on after 8 and hitting curfew resulting in one song encores.

17 years, 81 shows and this was a dud, by far my least favorite. I had never left a show disappointed \'til now. Pig is a great opener but the show was so up and down I kept hanging in and thinking they were going to blow it out and it never happened. I\'m surprised to see people saying \"good setlist\" yet people are complaining about Mansfield? Must be the same people that hate the LL\'s and Jimi Thing. I had never seen so many people sitting at a show, I had never sat that much myself. Glad I have 4 more shows to wipe this one away before they take a year off.

First show in the pit with my son. great set, great times with friends and my son scored two sticks from Carter at the end of the main set. Call that a successful night.
