The last show I saw was night 2 at SPAC in 2016, and that was not a good show. My expectations were tempered for this one, however another fan said the show the night before in Mansfield was awesome. Hartford did not disappoint. The energy was high and the sound was crisp. One of the best shows ever (and I've been going since 1993).

Had a great time. Band sounded good, and Captain Liberation was the hi light.

Show was amazing. Band has a totally different sound with buddy on the keys and I love it. Band was into it all night and were having fun with the crowd.

Great on paper- my first post-Boyd show and perhaps it was the mix, but there seemed to be significant voids where horns filled in but the sound was hardly as full as it should have been to cover sometimes prominent parts. That said: Captain, Lying in the Hands of God (ABI outro), and - surprisingly - stand up we’re all highlights. Billes show close was also great.

Songs like Bayou, Hands of God sounded like entirely different songs without Boyd and with Buddy Strong. Could be a new era for the band.

This was my first show at Xfinity Theatre. This was also one of my friend's first DMB shows. I was talking to him about The Song That Jane Likes on the way there, and then in the middle of the set: "I got a sister named Jane..." He was also psyched to hear The Space Between during the encore.One Sweet World, Granny, and Crush really set the energy for the beginning of the show. I'm not a huge fan of Captain, but I was glad to hear it once. Other highlights were Stay or Leave, Warehouse, the only performance of Black and Blue Bird that summer, Lying in the Hands of God, Funny, and Stand Up.

The boys brought it tonight: Crush was gross, lots of dancing and talking out of Dave throughout, Jimi Thing was funky with a good back and forth btwn Buddy and Tim, raw Warehouse (Dave switched guitars mid-song). Lying in the Hands of God didn\'t disappoint, crowd didn\'t see the American Baby Intro coming for the outro, Stand Up ending was awesome (Buddy killed it). Even songs that I\'m not pumped to hear turn out to be solid. This band kicks ass. Boyd who??

I\'m shocked at all the positive reviews! The first half of the show was great, but it got way too mellow. I personally hate Captain so having that be the song to they liberated was torture. It\'s a toss up b/w that and Virginia for the worst DMB song of all time. The new songs are ok, but no to hing earth so shattering and just too slow. Also miss the violin on many songs.

Sat in the first row of the upper section with some awesome people. First time seeing Buddy live! I thought the band seemed reenrgized and the jam after Can't Stop was really good. Typical Hartford crowd...

Good show. I thought music was bettter than Mansfield the night previous but the last set list was better but whoncan complain being so close? Buddy Strong KILLED it. Got shoved down the stairs on the way in too...so that happened.
