Regardless of what people say about this being a mellow show, it was still a great jam. Nancies, Bartendar, When the World Ends were just as energetic as any other time I've heard them. Everyday/36 was a pleasant suprise. I've had 36 stuck in my head ever since.

My 1st show...we looked all over busted stuff for Gravedigger when we got back to the car and never found it...thank goodness I found it online and didn't have to wait for Some Devil to come out to find it!!!

This show was pretty mellow. There was a few highlights such as a jam session from Mr.Boyd Tinsley and bringing older songs back to life such as "The song the jane likes" and "Proudest Monkey". There was a lot of energy from the boys but not as much as I was expecting. I was'nt blown away...but satisfied nonetheless. Still it was a great show with its perks, Dave seemed to be in a good mood and did a teriffic job on bartender. It was the first time I heard loving wings or gravedigger, and they were really awesome with alot of emotion behind them.

Seats were again crappy through the shitty warehouse (despite my seniority from March of 2000). Nothing really special about the show. Alicia and I were there both nights.

WOW! What a night, Nancies was the show's definite highlight. DAMN that show kicked my ass. Boyd was possesed and nearly brought tears to my eyes as the whole venue was singing along to this classic. other highlights include only 1 electric guitar song (I Did It). Jimi Thing was amazing also and R&R surprised me a bit about how much the crowd got into it. Grey Street was a nice opener and I enjoyed the encore even though not many people knew the "Hani, Hani" part to Everyday. Dave added some old #36 lyrics that he usually doesn't do nowadays. A very kick ass show.

First experience, and it was everything I could have hoped for. Could not believe that I got to hear Satellite, Ants Marching, and Dancing Nancies all in one night. Bummed out though that I missed Say Goodbye the next night. Gravedigger was simply unbelievable, and I look forward to the fine tuning of this song.

We sat in the VERY back of the pavillion... last row. We sat next to these thuglike guys who were awesome fans despite their image. they were cool. Some girl wanted to sneak into the pavillion from the lawn and just see how far her tits could get her. She didn't care about the music, so I told the Polaris people and they kicked her slutty ass out. It was nice. Brad went backstage but couldn't get us there. We were depressed. It was a great selist and the first and only time I've heard Gravedigger, which I immediately fell in love with. Camping was awesome... we met Benson and Scott and laughed at the people who got kicked out who had "the coldest beer" and a Homer Simpson hookah on the table when the cops pulled up. Nice.

i waited outside all day in the pouring rain b/c i left my tickets in chicago! not to mention i spent my birthday bauling after i realized what i had done! but i saw the buses pull in, the guys waved at me! but it payed off when i scored tix and had a great show!

The outside atmosphere was great, although it was a little rainy. I was excited to hear Proudest Monkey->Satellite (two of my favorites) and I was also pleased to hear Jimi Thing again. The biggest shocker of the night was to hear The Song that Jane Likes, I was not expecting that at all. Still haven't seen Crash Into Me or Watchtower...

Pretty standard 2002 show. The thing that really sticks out in my mind about this show: Daves solo performance of Gravedigger, Shauna and I talked for a while afterwards about how intense and emotional this version was...pretty in your face for being a solo acoustic tune.

My 2nd DMB show, but my 1st being a fan who actually knew the majority of their music. I remember the first 3 songs we heard from the damn parking lot, because the traffic was miserable getting in, so that was a bummer. I remember the audience chatter being so loud I couldn't hear "Gravedigger" at all. I also remember being happy that so many UTTAD songs were played, as that was my favorite album.

Well, I just walked in from the show and let me say.....WOW!!!! The boys did not disappoint with tonights set-list. Nancies, STJL, Gravedigger, they just kept coming with it. It was great to say the very least. I was shocked to hear them do WWYS and Ants, both as part of the set and not as an encore. I just may have to find a ticket for tomorrow night's show.

Great Show! Boyd was awesome on this two-day stop and the Everyday encore w/ #36 was great.

So the fling with the old HS buddy did not work out so I rented a car and drove to Columbus. I was amazed at how green that drive was it was gorgeous. I tried getting a ticket on the street before the venue and ended up getting soaked by some crazy ass storm. The craziest storm I have ever been in anyways. The scalpers laughed at me when I told them I planned on paying face, they are buttheads. I decided I would have better luck in the lots. I found a ticket by walking car to car while waiting to get into the lots. I think his name was Andy and he was going solo as well. He loved playing the air drums, he was quite good:) I was stoked on YNK. Sadly I missed the next night since I had to catch my flight home. Pig opener must have been sweet.

Not the best show I've been to, for several reasons. First, I was on the lawn with a bunch of friends because everyone knows you can't order six tickets through the Warehouse. So, the people on the lawn ruined certain songs like Loving Wings (couldn't even hear it). I was disappointed that BEF didn't preceed Bartender. The highlight of the night was definitely Nancies though. I had been praying for this one, and it was the best I've heard.

Pretty chill show. It couldn't match 8/3 in PA, but was still a good time. I enjoyed hearing Proudest Monkey and I'm beginning to like You Never Know the more I hear it.

The show was amazing! I took my two little brothers to there first Dave concert, and they had the best time of there lives. Ants Marching, R&R, and everyday(36) were my highlights of the night. To open up with Grey Street and follow up with this incredible setlist just blew me away. Next to the saturday night concert in Chicago's Allstate arena, this show is definetly ranked as one of my most memorable show. Thanks DMB
