One star for Two Step, and two for Halloween. Set list lacked flow and was overall very mellow.

3 hour show! Band looked like they were having fun. Their last show at Irvine before its torn down. Thought they would play Last Stop. Oh well, off to the Gorge!

The band was in great form and TIGHT. Definitely a slow start. Not my favorite song choices for the first few songs, but Break Free was a happy surprise and from there the show took off. I was shocked by how into THE SPACE BETWEEN I was!!! I mean, they killed it! New arrangement, higher energy, bigger build. I got really into that one. DDTW was particularly off the chain, and Typical Situation destroyed. The encore was a cool unexpected surprise- as much as I was looking forward to the Two Step outro, it was great having an authentic transition to Halloween during the drum solo. I\'d give it more starts except that it took about 45 minutes for this to become a truly great performance.

Was in melancholy spirits for many reasons....last show in Irvine before they tear it down, DMB going on hiatus after this summer tour, my dog was sick so was an hour late to the show and missed Proudest Monkey.....oh well, it all melted away once I heard...Typical Situation!

Two Step and Halloween saved me from giving my first ever 2 star rating - not necessarily the band's fault but more the venue and my seats. Up in the terrace, felt like being at a Tennessee football game, seats were so packed together you couldn't move and due to the steep incline, the band seemed like they were a county away... That plus the nonstop smoking around me and giant hike to the bathroom made this a bummer for my last show of 2016... Glad they are ditching this venue, hopefully for a much better location. all that said, the run to end the show was phenomenal. Thanks DMB for 25 and here's to 25 more!

I thought it was a great, great show. Anytime you get Typical is a treat. The band was having tons of fun and performance was tight. I thought Tim and Carter were both in particularly great form.

Great show, great energy, probably the best proudest monkey and break free I\'ve ever seen. The improv intros and outros on typical, don\'t drink, two step, and even the two step fake into recently were awesome. New born arrangement on samurai cop is 👌🏼. Wait for some copperpot videos, the band was super tight.

This is my third Dave Show. My first being at the Gorge in 2014, in Lake Tahoe last year being the second. This show ranks high in the sense that I have never heard Proudest Monkey live or Crash into Me, even Seven. The overall it seemed down for some reason.

Great way to close out an era of Irvine Meadows tour stops. Party like atmosphere. Jam heavy, selective set list. One for the ages.

Thanks again DMB for a memorable weekend to highlight my summer, show 58 since 2001, Warehouse seats not exactly what I hoped for, definitely worse than last year, after a stinker opening, got into it with proudest monkey, crush, minarets, recently, typical situation, ddtw, jimi thing were spectacular, awesome encore minus sister, didn't get ants, liog, nancies, pig, say goodbye either last night in Chula Vista or here Irvine but all in all great two night stand with only one repeat, thought last stop might get played since it was last show at Irvine

I'm going to miss this venue. The band always had a great sound here, always on point and very clean through the mix.

Got off to a bit of a slow start but really caught fire with the Proudest Monkey to Squirm run. Glad I got my first Rooftop, If Only, and Break Free. Highlights included Crash Into Me, Crush, Recently, and especially Typical Situation, which was incredible. And the Two Step>Halloween encore was the icing on the cake. Would have loved to have seen Last Stop in there for Irvine\'s last show, but can\'t complain with the show I got. Band knew what was up and played 30 min past the strict curfew. Dave even said \"I came back out anyway,\" when going back for the encore 15 min past time. Too bad this is the last stop for the venue, but the band sent the Meadows out in style.

Irvine is always a treat because I make the trip to see my Hollywood based son. Great song performances throughout, band played until 11:30! And Two Step/Halloween!

Loved it! Each band member was at the top of his game. Feeling the rock vibe tonight. The setlist is probably incapable of explaining how amazing it went down. The crowd especially loved The Space Between and Jimi Thing, but really everything. There were great moments in each of the songs, really each one. Personally, glad to get Squirm and Minarets in the same show.
