My First show of the year, and an okay way to start...Amazing seats...section 7, didn't pay a dime for the tickets either...Props go out to my Aunt for pulling that one...Heartbeat was cool...and Lie in Our Graves was so freaking amazing...My mouth was hanging open at the end of that one...DDTW was a fun closer...

Awsome concert. My first DMB concert as being a fan for about 5 years now. I was hoping Watchtower for the encore. But not so. Acoustic Kokaine

First show. I didn't know what to expect. Too many shorter, radio hits. Highlights include Stone and Graves. Boyd went totally insane w/ a 5+ minute solo. Got me hooked on the band and got me started concert trading as well

Great show!!! The band was in the mood, heartbeat intro was cool, first time I got to hear it. Raven was the bomb, didn't imagine DDTW would be the closer but sent everybody out in the parking lot all fired up to battle their way through the drunken phillies fans!

I had a blast at this show! My friend and I decided after this show that dmb is like this weird folk/heavy metal band. This was during an era when they really mastered this heavy driving quality to their music. I remember loving Raven, and LIOG especially. Gotta love the arena sound too.

I passed one of the most difficult physical challenges of my life this night. Pulled it off. I was happy to be Dopey.

busted stuff heavy set, and thats the way i like it.

fishtender > heartbeat intro > PNP > Rapunzel mini concert was unreal. LIOG blew the roof off.

Decent show, good variety of old and new. Rapunzel was a nice way to close but I did not enjoy the encore at all.

This was a pretty standard album release show. It was my first taste of the polished Busted Stuff material. I really dug "You'll Never Know" right away. Even though "Where Are You Going" is getting overplayed, it is a sweet song. Nothing to spectacular otherwise. Personally, it was memorable because it was my first DMB show with my then girlfriend (now wife) Erica.

grey street, lie in our graves and drive in drive out all highlights.. props to boyd with a killer solo

Dave comes back fever free and gives a real good show. The Everyday songs really proved themselves here as been forces to be reckoned with in a live setting. Highlight: Lie In Our Graves with Boyd lighting his violin on fire and he didn't even choke on his own vomit... Tinsley you ARE experienced! Rapunzel always equals damn good show. Well done boys!

My first Dave show. I wasn't really into them at the time, but my friend had free seats so I went. Completely changed my view and I was hooked from there.

User: jedwards
Review:
Show started off a little slow, but after GIG it was nothing but jamming. Lie in Our Graves was sick. Bartender was fantastic as it went straight into Rapunzel.

Great show. Nice to hear "Raven" with finished lyrics (one of my all time favorite songs) and "You Never Know" was amazing too. The album wasn't out yet and I had no idea what that song was, but I was blown away by it and couldn't wait to get my hands on the "Busted Stuff" album to get this song.

Well after what I thought was a very lackluster start except for the changes made to Raven and the new song You Never Know, things really didnt get going till about LIOG with about a 20 minute version that knocked my socks off. I love the song and this extended jam with Boyd pooling with Dave, Carter, and Butch was amazing. The crowd was pumped also, probabally one of the loudest arena crowds I have heard for a show. Then, the end of the set with BEF into Bartender into PNP into Rapunzel was a almost 45 minute mini concert by itself. Where are you going for the encore is a nice slow touch. I am glad to finally hear it with the full band like it will be when it comes out in May. But DDTW is still not one of my favorites and I wish something like Tripping or Ants or even Watchtower would have closed the encore. All in all a pretty middle of the road show, no extrodinary performances. It even looked like Roi was a bit under the weather, since he really didnt do any extended solos and even was not playing all the time with the rest of the band. Also the thing that got me was that Bela Fleck and the Flecktones were announced as the opener early on when I bought the tickets but I guess the could not open until the canadian leg of the tour, so that was the bigest letdown of the night.

Won Warehouse upgrade seats. After touching the ceiling in our original seatswe followed the red hat to FRONT ROW CENTER. by far the best show ever. great gift for my ex-bf's 21 bday

User: livesbydave
Review:
very nice show. the "fighting city of brotherly love" as Dave himself calls us is always a great crowd. the set is a little on the down side, but they make any set a good one right.

User: lucia

the first one of the year is always enjoyable, especially when they play two new songs. i had great seats on the side of the stage and i could see the band very well.

DMB is much better in an outdoor pavillion setting. Lie in Our Graves was a high point.

4th show (2nd of tour) OK Seats, the rented pair of binoculars did not do me justice. Awesome Stone and LIOG. Some annoying fans ruined the experience.

Went by myself.. Had baseball practice before and no talgate and saw Hopkins and all there, Ok, show, a routine show if I would say.. nothing crazy out of the ordinary here.. remember walking under 95 parking way the fuck outta the way. Also sitting catty corner/ beheind the stage.. not bad but you miss the energy from the band all you see and hear is the crowd....

I didn't get to tailgate this one, but it was still a good show. Raven was great as well as Big Eyed Fish--->Bartender. Lie in Our Graves was out of this world with Dave and Boyd rocking back and forth. The only thing I didn't like was the encore. I don't think the last song played should be Don't Drink the Water. Having said that, still a great show!!!!
