Just a fun show. The band played tight but not very aggressively; Which suited the ambiance just fine. They took a lot of breaks in between song but was always in command of the performance. Def a lot of serious and somber songs w Dave taking time to appreciate it all and everyone. No one expected they\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d totally flip the script the following night. This show was a terrible teaser of what was going to follow. The Last Stop stood out above all else. A tent-pole that brought the audience and the band towards the top. They played us into a tight Granny but then energized-up again into Say Goodbye. And that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s how the rest of night played out. Dave paid careful attention to the audience, with the band building him up along the way. So it was no surprise when he teased #40 and then quietly lit up the arena with heavy but genuine Angel from Montgomery. They bid furious farewell with All Along the Watchtower. Dave finally came to life with a fight in the outro of this performance. And exploded the second night in show open Rapunzel.

My first show ever. We had lawn seats, and because I'm short I never saw the band. Didn't need to though. . . it was amazing, I was hooked!! The Last Stop and Lie in Our Graves blew me away. Loved hearing Say Goodbye.

First show ever. Awesome seat. Went solo to take in the whole experience without interruptions. Still one of the best I have seen after 45 shows.

The first and probably best show I've ever been to. Too bad I didn't realize how good the show was at the time ;p

Absolutely stunning show. My favorite moment was while they were playing "Pig" and I was just looking up at the stars (it was a really clear, warm summer night.) Just one of those perfect moments. Phenomenal 1st show experienced at Alpine Valley.

I don't care what anyone says noblesville and alpine valley have to be Dave's favorite place to play after the world show I took a break for a couple of days and got back on the road again to see dave play a two day show at alpine the set list was awsome you couldnt ask for much more. Make sure you get the show from someone to experience it for yourself.

Watchtower was amazing! This whole show was the one of the best I've heard. Alpine is the best, what else can you say?

What a great weekend! Hung out with Jen, Jon, Lisa, Justin and Paul on Saturday afternoon at Summerfest. Justin decided that he wanted to know what it was like to wear a skirt, so he bought one. After a nice short drive from Milwaukee, we set up shop and began a little tail gate action. Justin a/k/a Skirt Boy was the life of the parking lot. And the look on the girl's face who lifted the skirt to verify that he was going commando was priceless. It was insanely hot and during a quite moment in the show Justin informed anyone within earshot that I was a sweaty bitch. The Iguanas were great fun and one of the best openers I've ever seen. I told Jen that I loved her toward the end of the show and pretty much floated up the hill at the end of the show. Despite my elated state I still was saddened to see the poor kid wading into the women's room with rubber gloves and bbq tongs to unclog whatever unholy nightmares that were causing havoc with the plumbing. Paul's quote of the weekend: "Hello, I'm your maid and I'm here to do NOTHING!"

I barely remember this concert to be honest, but looking back i seem to recall long black veil the most, and havent seen it since as i recall. of course the AATW closer was something that i have rarely heard anymore as well. going to this show is when i realized that i was really into dmb.

This show was amazing. Every collector should have it. A lot of energy, lots of rarities, all performed to perfection at the beautiful, notorious Alpine Valley Music Theatre. I've never had anything but an amazing time at this venue....seems to bring something out of the artists who perform here.

Best version of #40 I've heard besides the original...I think it's about 3 minutes long at this show. Also hearing Angel From Montgomery after saying early in the show, "Dude, I hope they pull out something old school like Angel From Montgomery" which he responded, "Yeah, right."

Snuck backstage again. The band already left but I was tipped off as to the hotel they were staying at. Made my way over there where I met Carter and LeRoi.

Best Dave show ever. They did and amazing set. How much better of an encore could you want. The full version of #40 followed by Angel From Montgomery. Hands down the best encore ever.

I was the drunk asshole puking all night, screaming let me die... If anyone was sitting near me I apologize and thank you for buying me water. I woke up after I took a dive over the seats in front of me in time to hear #40. Rock!

My FIRST DMB show ever! It was a blast, Alpine is a great place to see them play.

I worked security for the show...the sole reason for me getting so heavily into Dave was because I had to work at this show...needless to say, there wasnt much secure around my part of Alpine..i was too damn invovled in the show, and was debating stripping off my bright red security jacket in favor of hitting the lawn.

well this was my first dMb show ever and like a drug I was addicted really badly. My friend showed me the red rocks concert and I was amazed and needed to see them live. I went to the show and was blown away. I knew a few songs and was in awe of the others I heard. The crowd was amazing and the atmosphere of alpine was the right touch. This show was amazing and got me hooked.
