Excellent show!!! Taste of Chicago was going on and had a great time. 18 minute version of Lie in our Graves with fireworks going off behind the stage during boyd's solo. Too Good!!!!

This show was amazing. When Buddy uy came out for Angel, it was unreal. Phenomenal show.

Decent show, considering the large amount of material off of Everday. Anyway it was a great way to end a stay in Chicago during "The Taste"

Review:
Hmm, not as good as the first night in my mind. Not that it wasn't fabulous seeing buddy guy sit in on Angel, but it wasn't enough... it wasn't even a long jam or as great as Buddy Guy can sound. Does anyone else notice that every other song is from everyday or lillywhite? It's like the band was trying to mix two very different sounds, so i'll describe it as "jerky" for lack of a better thought. It's nice to see #41, Lie In, and Recently on a setlist, but i've heard them sound better. The thing that got me the most were the teases. I REALLY LIKE PIG, the teases raised my hopes, then no Pig. Also a Dreaming tree plug at the beginning. OK

A pretty good show. It was when Dave wanted t play pig and tease almost between every song. The beginning of the show rocked and looked promesing, but middle of the show was smooth and calm. LIOG was a kick ass song, Dave left stage to do some extra curricular activity.

Was on the field for this one. Fun times. Had to trash my hitter before the show because of the metal detectors. Thank god for the guy with the glass in front of me.

My First DMB show and I loved it soo much I will be going Every time he comes to Chicago!!

User: chithead
Review:
The absolute most energy I have ever seen out of the band. LIOG could not have been any more perfect with Boyd's 6 1/2 minute solo, which was unbelievable, and the fireworks going off over Navy Pier right in the middle of it. I was too damn far away from the stage, but this was by far the best show I have been to the 9 I have been to. Kinda wished he would have broken into Dreaming and Pig, but it sure as hell got my attention. A show I will never forget.

LIOG and Ants really made this show for me. I did finally get to hear Grey Street live again. First time in three shows and over a year. Also got to hear a very rare live version of Mother Father. Probably never hear that one again. Didn't really care for it at the time, but now that I look back I'm glad I got to hear it.

My friend called me up before the show and told me she had an extra ticket. So when I got there, I met up with her, sold my ticket and proceeded to my seat....7th row. It was hot and everybody was taking apart the chairs so we could dance. The set was good. But the memories from tonight will last forever.

This show was a bad ass show because it was Dave in soldier field. It was a nice night and the taste of chicago was going on. Grey street was killer because it was the first time I heard it. Without a doubt a good show to download. I need to still get it.

We were planning on meeting Justin & Amy at the seats but it turned out that they were on the l car directly behind us and we hooked up for the walk into the show. Our seats were further back but we could actually see this time. While I enjoy the atmosphere of a show at Soldier Field (the skyline and the lake front and the Taste of Chicago) I hate the logistics of it. There aren't enough bathrooms or beer vendors, especially if you are on the floor. But enough of my whining, it was another excellent show. Angelique Kidjo guesting on OSW was pretty cool and Buddy Guy showing up during Angel made that song palitable. Grey Street, Grace is Gone, Digging a Ditch and #41 were all great and Dave's infatuation with THE TASTE OF CHICAGO was hilarious.

Being my first DMB show I was amazed at the energy of such a large crowd. The band was amazing and the fireworks at the end of the night signaling the end of the Taste of Chicago added that special touch.

A little better than the night before. Best version of LIOG ever. However, the venue, lovely ladies, and heavy everyday keep this show from the top of my list. 6th of 8.

Attended with Kantro, Maro, and Holland. Kantro was a tease...

User: JiMiThiNg34
Review:
Awesome show, but not as good as the first night in my opinion, and when angelique kidjo came out to sing on satellite, that just pissed me off, hearing her sound like a rambling man, who didnt know any part of the song, which just made me really mad, other than that, a good show.

I actually had 4 seats to the show the night before but not as good as the 2 I had for this show. I sold the 4 seats and went to a Dido concert that night then off to Dave the next night. It was a hot evening and another great Dave show.

User: JTR36
Review:
Its a while back but this show was awesome. Buddy Guys solo in Angel was the highlight of the night for me. While he played Satellite he played it with Angeliqe Kudjo and her part of the singing juse flat out sucked. Dave was having fund and was teasing pig all night long. Left before the encore because my ride was anal and wanted to "beat the traffic". so i missed what could have been the best ants marching ever.

Although Dave did not come to Deer Creek/Verizon in Noblesville this year we drove to see him sat on the side of the stage and still had a great time, I think when they left the stage and we got to go down to the front row it was the closest I have ever been!

my buddy Justin and I sat behind the stage with no one around us. had a beer and a cigarette. had a good view of the stage from behind, except boyd, and a good view of the sears tower. we relaxed and I put my feet up on the seats in front of me. my ticket says section 124, row 20, seat 5, so next to the stage. they had a screen showing the band but going behind the stage was a better view and experience.

User: Matthew Street
Review:
I wasn't on the floor tonight but I actually had an even better view of the stage from where I was at. It was awesome setlist tonight. Opened with Grey Street (which you can hear on the warehouse 5 volume 2 disc if you're in the warehouse). Played Satellite with Angelic Kidjo or whatever her name is. I was mildly disappointed with that. It was cool but I would much rather have just heard him sing it. They put this on the Everyday live import disc that comes with the Everyday album in Australia. You can find it at Best Buy for like 20 something dollars. It's weird because a lot of this show is on the warehouse 5 volume 2 disc and the Everyday live disc. Seems like they should have just released it. Buddy Guy had an amazing solo when he came out to join them for Angel. It made up for his not so greaty opening act performance tonight and the night before (I wasn't that impressed). I enjoyed the show a lot, but two of the people sitting next to me were so disappointed in the setlist they actually got up and left mid-show. It was strange.

GREAT SHOW...had crappy seats but good karma prevailed and two people wanted to take our seats with an obstructed view...thanks again!! Fireworks were awesome from the Taste of Chicago on the Lake...perfect with LIOG!

Great show. I had incredible seats. The pig signs in the front were pretty funny. A lot of pig teases. Could definitley tell he was not going to play it. Very good show. Chicago is a great city and if anyone wants to travel to a show this should be on your list.
