Great show! Iíve been to 40+ now and after a several year layoff this was a great one to come back to! I figured this would be a good one after the tepid reviews of the Shit-cago shows. Iíve seen Dave at Norhterly and will never go back. Sure wish they would start playing Alpine again. This amphitheater was pretty bad too, but that didnít deter the crowd or the band. Man, they were tight and the sound was amazing. Solid set list, high energy, great weather! Didnít miss Boyd one bit, honestly. Also glad that they seemed to have turned Timís volume down a bit too as he is the screechiest Who in Whoville. There is absolutely no subtlety to his playing anymore. Band was balanced and played as a cohesive unit. Really great stuff!!!

Pulled a first row ticket at noon. Walked in three minutes before the show started. Amazing view, great sound, enjoyable setlist. Dipped at encore break and was home an hour an a half before my friends who stayed for Jimi Thing. Caught a Greta Van Fleet tune on the way out.

I was very happy to hear Come On Come On live. Big fan of new album. Some of the crowd tended to sit during the new songs but they sounded great. I am not one to care about whether or not I am getting songs I have never heard live before but I will admit it felt good to hear at least 6 I had not heard live yet.

It started as any show does, with Brad texting that an assortment of Paul\\\\\\\'s belongings were broken - his phone, AC, windows, etc. So we got together and skipped Liquid Johnny\\\\\\\'s and arrived at the Summerfest Parking lot. Just 3 grown men, sitting in a Cruze, drinking beer. Next was the sailboat cafe. We braved the pouring rain to get there and boy was it ever not worth it. After several beers there we went to the venue and found our seats. Brad struck up a conversation with several people near us, including DMB TATTOO whom we hadn\\\\\\\'t seen since mercilessly harassing his Blackhawks jersey at Farm Aid in 2010. No sooner did the show begin with a song from the new album than Brad took a seat. As you can tell, this is a review of Brad\\\\\\\'s evening, not the actual show. Brad continued to sit for most of the show. At one point, people sitting around us were worrying for his well being. He managed to get himself to the bar for another drink during the middle of the show only to pass back out at his seat for the duration. The good news is he didn\\\\\\\'t vomit. I think he only came to continue his vicious game of cat and mouse he started 4 years earlier. Rashawn seemed to be digging through a little suitcase full of snacks throughout the show and looked confused both when singing and when playing trumpet. Stefan sported his STOKED hat much to the chagrin of everyone attending. And where was BOYD TINSLEY: SEXUAL PREDATOR? His parts were actually reassigned or taken out completely. Other bunglers included Dave\\\\\\\'s guitar tech who messed up so many time I lost count. No doubt he is without a job today. Jeff looked a little like Skeletor without his glasses and Tim is more and more resembling the character from Lion King who holds up Simba at the beginning (it\\\\\\\'s worth a Google).

First show in 6 years. Band was tight, having keys again was cool. Iíd say Hello Again and Jimi Thing were highlights, but aside from an early Here On Out that everyone talked over, really not a bad moment. Surprised at how much I dug the Stand Up era songs and how little I noticed having no Boyd. Good set for a festival.

This one exceeded my expectations. After being disappointed in \"No Alpine\" this year, I had to work myself up to get excited about Summerfest, but it ended up being just plain great. Loved the setlist, loved the people around me in Section 7, loved the band\'s energy and how well Buddy has been integrated into the sound. it was even cooler to see that Warehouse and So Right weren\'t on the printed setlist. The band was very jammy/jazzy compared to the past few times I\'ve seen them, and they just seemed to be having a great time and leaving it all on the stage before their few days off. Highlights were Hello Again, LIOG, Warehouse, YMDT, 41, and all of the new songs were great to hear live too. I seriously can\'t believe I\'m going to type this, but I really enjoyed the Jimi encore. Once it started, I knew we were only getting the 1 song, so I enjoyed every note of the jam instead of trying to anticipate what \"other\" song would come next. So happy and lucky to still be seeing this band in concert 15 years after first seeing them, and I\'m going to enjoy the ride as long as it lasts!

Every DMB Song has been my favorite at some point in time so it was an awesome show! Dave teaches us not to take things for granted and it is amazing that the band has continued in the face of all the changes. (LeRoi, Boyd) I think all the setlist shamers are taking for granted that the band is still here for them and playing the music we love. DMB has over 150 songs they can perform. We get 20ish per show. I love this band. If your not happy at the shows stop going.

I just don't know. Venue was very stuffy. Missed Alpine. Had a great day at Summerfest but this show was too heavy on new stuff for a stand alone show. Probably would have appreciated the set more if I had been in Chicago. Not a fan of this venue at all.

Coming off of two nights in Chicago, we knew he wouldn't play repeats... and in fact he played too many songs off the new album. The venue was not great, and the sound system was off. Love the lively crowds at Alpine, so the energy from the crowd here was disappointing. Dave and the band played with a lot of "high octane" emotion, however even their high energy couldn't make up for the negatives of the venue, setlist and crowd.

Not a knock on the show, or part of my rating, but can we all just agree to go back to Alpine? This didnít feel like a good show, it felt like an encore after Chicago, just wasnít the same energy level, setlist was mediocre. 1/4 songs from the new album, and only one from BTCS (partial to it since itís my favorite, but after all itís my review)

Tim\'s slide was worth the ticket price on its own.

I was originally never much of a fan of Louisiana Bayou, but they have really evolved that into a great song live.

Great show, only negative was the amount of replays after being in Chicago for 2 nights as well. Humidity was at about 1000%

Great show with lots of energy. Tim filled in a lot of spaces where you'd normally hear Boyd. So strange not to hear his violin on certain tunes. Not a Tim/electric guitar fan, so hopefully a replacement for Boyd can eventually be found. Still a solid show.
