Kind of a funny story....I was in Vegas for my sister's wedding. About half-way through the lavish wedding reception at Caesars, my friends and I decided we couldn't miss the chance to see the band when they happened to be in town the same weekend as us. So we snuck out and scored tickets through the Caesars Concierge at face value and Caesars even gave us a limo ride to the show. My sister was so pissed at us! Oh well, the marriage didn't last, but my memories of this experience live on.

We snuck down from section 110 to the 17th row on the floor, in the middle. A magical night indeed.

Gotta say we had the worlds shitty-ist seats, Macy Grey was on crack and that it was freakin hotter than the face of the sun, but besides that it I loved the show, just so happy to have been able to see the band. "Veeeg-as"

Took my mom to this show and had a blast! First time they played me Big Eyed Fish and that was excellent!! Didn't seem to be sold out and that was a bummer but none the less it was a fabulous show.

Pretty good show. True Reflections then Recently was the highlight for me. Stay closer of show is epic. A few Everday songs I could have done w/o, but its all god and well in my book. vEGAS BABY.

Horrible seats, but a great show. First time hearing Everyday/#36 combo. Always great to hear #41 live. Great opening set by Widespread Panic as well. As you can tell from my username, you can't get any better than a combo show with DMB and WP!

Very first DMB experience on the floor, pretty darn close! I loved it, I was amazed, and cried as #41 began as the second song. What a whole new world to open the radio box into a live experience. I had listened to DMB for six years before going to a live show! (being young and in Jr. High didn't give much of an opportunity to go see concerts) Amazing, I am humbled.

Saw both Vegas shows... First time I ever heard Angel, Long Black Veil. Both nights were spectacular, aside from being surface-of-the-sun hot and quite dusty, as I recall.

Everyday turned into the song that it is today. This was the first full crowd participation that I remember with that tune. Lot's of, "Money, money come and dance with me". The boys enjoyed it, even though it was as hot and dry as the devil's colon after a trip through the desert.

I was at both UNLV shows and they were awesome. One of the crew got married that night, and Dave ended up seeing 'O' , "the greatest show on water."-DJM

Always remember this show as the one where the crowd starting singing #36 over Everyday and Dave going absolutely crazy. Good times. The best of times.

First Dave show ever!

Review:
Great show....but Dave should never have Widespread Panic open for them. It was tough to have Panic come out and kick your ass...then Dave came out and it was a bit of a slowed down show. Never a complaint....just a critique

Man this was a fun weekend in LV. We went specifcally to see the show and enjoy Vegas. DMB was great. The funny thing about this show was my father-in-law who was about 60 years old came with us not knowing much about DMB. He sat with his wife on the other side of the stadium. After the show we caught up with him and he told us that he smoked some hippie lettuce that was offered to him by the kids next to him. We thought that was awesome and had a good laugh. Cool father-in-law!

Have to say it wasent the best concert I had been to. The acoustics of the place were pretty bad. It was soooo hot even in may - we were dying. The only thing I remeber of the show is #41. My favorite all time DMB song. Second DMB concert. I still did not know the names to all the songs. The firends I went there with made the trip worthwile!

This was great. A great, great time! I drove out in my 1971 VW Bus not knowing I was running on two cylynders. Made it but it was damn stressful. Had no place to stay, planned on camping but my Bus needed work. So my brother and I try to meet up with some WHers and get a place to crash and a ride. I met up with Julie and Jason from Minneapolis. It all worked out dust storm and all. We are still friends. The Bus got fixed by the greatest mechanic ever.

This was the first time the crowd started "Honey Honey ... come and dance with me ..." to get DMB to change Everyday over to #36. Talk about amazing! The venue sorta sucked, but the music, as always, was incredible.
