2nd nite @ Germain Amphitheatre...a little better than first nite...enjoyed Crash, Jimi, & What You Are sequence...

The show was great, I went with a long time good friend of mine and it was really nice to hear dave play some not so common stuff. Seats were awesome and the crowd was cool. Glad I went to the concert!

User: DancingJennas
Review:
It was great to hear Granny, PFWYG (full band), The Maker (full band) and Dreaming Tree for the first time. Also, the Ants Marching encore closer was just what was needed. Great show.

User: DanOnGreyStreet
Review:
Show ROCKED!!! I called the encore. This was Boyd's night, he was on fire!!!! Maker was quality, Crash was a fan favorite. Dreaming Tree and Ants were my two favorite for the night.

The show was absolutely terrific! This was my first DMB show, will certainly not be the last. Moe. opening up was awesome as well. Best of the night: "Jimi Thing" and of course the encore closer "Ants Marching".

User: davembgirl
Review:
this show was a real treat, esp. after the subpar show the night before. the band and the fans had incredible energy. the setlist was awesome! i couldnt believe it when i heard the first chords for "dreaming tree"! Also, "dancing nancies" and "cry freedom" were big surprises as well. overall, one of the best shows i've been to.

amazing show dude

User: dmb2much40
Review:
oh my. that's all i can say. awesome, just awesome. kit kat. pay for what you get.dreaming tree. more than i could have ever dreamed! a little mellow at times, but the stone & ants encore made up for that. awesome jamming on lie in our graves and jimi thing.

My first show ever! Amazing as hell. Me and two friends mini-road tripped down from Cleveland. An experience I'll never forget!

User: DMBDoogs03

Great Set - DREAMING TREE!!! granny opener

User: dmbfan5413
Review:
This show definately rocked. Much better than Tuesday night. I could actually see Dave and Boyd jamming where I was sitting under the pavilion. To top it off I could understand Dave when he would speak to the crowd. Justin

My first Dave Concert and it didn't fail to impress...Rock on DMB!!!!

EXCELLENT SHOW...One of my all time favs..heard a lot of songs i've never heard..Dave was dancing all over the place..Gotta love the first couple showsZ!!!

User: dmbsigep
Review:
i really cannot tell you how great this show was. my girlfriend and i got lucky, we had two separate pavillion tickets, but ended up being able to sit together. the highlight of the night was certainly the dreaming tree, except not many people knew what the hell it was, too bad for them. overall one of the better dave shows ive been too, lest the sometimes bad acoustics. dmb is easily first among equals.

First Show... amazing way to kick off my DMB career

User: drunkenmonkey
Review:
Wow! Either this tour is going to be plain sick or DMB loves Columbus (maybe both). I would like to thank the band for some amazing shows and suprises. I almost fell in disbelief several times each night. Thank you.

Dreaming Tree!!! Awesome ending to a great stand in Columbus. Not a song repeated in the two nights.

best one ive seen

User: GreyStreetAve
Review:
After seeing Typical Situation and Last Stop the previous night, i didn't think things could get any better....i was wrong. This show had to offer The Dreaming Tree, Cry Freedom, Pay For What You Get, The Maker, LIOG, Jimi, Nancies, Kit Kat, I could seroiusly keep on going. A flawless set, INCREDIBLE energy, especially from Boyd. Perhaps the best DMB show I will ever see (definitely one of them)

User: hmndtyphoon

Kit Kat Jam?! They said that they would dig deep into the pile for this tour. Very exciting. Great to hear Fool to Think and also Crash for a second time in concert. Ending on Ants Marching was great, but the fans wanted one more.

User: irish19982003
Review:
Unbelievable!! My 20th show and easily the best, most energetic show I've been to. Boyd was out of control. The best part was when his mic fell off from his crazy jamming and the stagehand came out to put it back on his belt, while Boyd was still jamming. Amazing! The encore of Stone and Ants may be one of the best ever. The Dreaming Tree was a pleasant surprise as was Granny to open. The only way this show could have improved is if they would have played Warehouse after Nancies.

Amazing Show! Such great tunes. Band was definitely on tonight and boyd was all over the place dancing (more then usual if you can believe that). Butch had a classic shirt on lol.

User: jw209
Review:
EASILY one of the top couple shows I have seen. If seeing Dreaming Tree, Maker, PFWYG, Cry Freedom, etc. weren't great enough, the fact that it was the first appearence of these songs made the element of surprise incredible. Crowd goes bonkers during Ants. Unbelievably memorable show out of 30+ for me.

User: jwdoc77
Review:
Simply awesome, great setlist. 90% old stuff. Not a repeat from last nights show, and boyd was off the hook.

User: kfiredanzr
Review:
WOW!!! This was the second best concert I've ever been to! GRANNY was a shock, but fabulous opener..hoping for ASTB-->Too Much after SMTS, but it's okay, because since they didn't do that, they therefore didn't repeat a single song from last night's concert! DDTW, great as always; it got the band and crowd energetic..love the OSW intro..PFWYG had that bit of Norweigan Wood thing Dave does with Tim; yay! KIT KAT JAM (w/lyrics) gets me going every time..Dancing Nancies was phenomenal with lots of crazy dancing and Boyd highlights (would've been nice to see Warehouse next but oh well)..CRY FREEDOM was a nice quiet song..THE MAKER - what can you say about it?! gives me the chills every time i hear it..LIOG, wow, always one of my faves ..FOOL TO THINK was nothing exciting, but still good; not as many people got up for a RR break like they usually do..DREAMING TREE was a surprise, it was a little more upbeat than usual, which was nice..CRASH INTO ME once again, Boyd did a lot of jamming, as he did in JIMI THING..there was a part where Roi had his solo and Dave, Stefan, and Boyd all stood around and jammed with him - I liked this b/c it made the band look like a band..we were hoping to hear WHAT YOU ARE as the closer, and we did! that was a killer song full of energy from everybody..and for encore, THE STONE and ANTS...both absolutely delightful and insanely energetic. THANKS GUYS FOR A GREAT EVENING!!! See y'all in Cincinnati, Indy, and Tinley Park!!!!

User: lzldmb

Absolutely amazing. The greatest concert I have ever been to, and quite possibly will ever attend again. Granny is a stellar opener and DDTW is always nice to hear. The Maker was also a very big surprise and a great treat. I think the greatest part of the night was Dreaming Tree- absolutely incredible. The mood certainly increased as they played Crash afterwards, then Jimi Thing and then What You Are to close the night. I will never forget that amazing night. DMB treated us well.

Good Good Time. Funny thing, tailgaiting that day Me & my buddy found some cans of PBR(pabst blue ribbon) and my buddy went off telling me how his grandma used to drink pbr all the time. Well his grandma had recently passed away, so we poured some pbr on the ground...With that said check out the opening song!!! great show!!!

This show was ten times better than the first night. It started out with granny and finish with ants marching. This was so sweet the crowd was in it Dave and the rest of the band were in to it. Boyd showed off is talent which blew my mind. Anyone who didnt go to this concert misout big time............

OH SWEET JESUS!! and I thought Tuesday Night was amazing, THEY OPENED WITH GRANNY!! One of my personal all time favorites, so I was pleased, off the bat! Don't Drink the Water, is ALWAYS good live! um...PFWYG was amazing!! Dancing Nancies, a crowd pleaser!! THE MAKER=WOW!!! LIE IN OUR GRAVES, was insane, the crowd was into it, everyone singing and dancing..."when I step into the light..." just imagine it... AWESOME!! THEY BUSTED OUT DREAMING TREE!! DO I HAVE TO SAY MORE!?!? CRASH...JIMI THING..WHAT YOU ARE, great!! THE STONE!! HOLY CRAP!! and ANTS as the closer....WHOA!! awesome show... just awesome!! hopfully more to come!!

User: numbr41

Good God!!!!!!!!! My 15th full band show and by far the best one. To hear pay For What You Get, The Maker, and The Dreaming Tree for the first time was amazing. I never expected Dreaming Tree. It started off as a pretty mellow show but the energy level picked up after LIOG. I loved the encore of The Stone and Ants. This show is definitely an A+ in my book.

User: ohherdfan
Review:
Granny was a great opener...great progression throughout the set...Nancies rocked and Cry Freedom was nice too. For me, they blew everyone away with F'ing Dreaming Tree! I could not believe that they played this, and then ito Crash, Jimi Thing, and What You Are (no teaser tonight!). And to close with Ants...awasome set...

Dear GOD! This was my tenth show. . .and by far the best! The setlist was PERFECT. . .no current radio singles. . .Granny, SMTS, DDTW right off the get go. . .Dreaming Tree, PFWYG, Cry Freedom! . . .The Stone and Ants as the encore. . .unmatched. . .this show plus the night before. . .I dunno if I can go to any more shows without being let down!!

I reluctantly left this show saying to myself, 'YEAH, now THAT is a DMB show!!!' Polaris Night Two was AWESOME and kicked serious butt! I just hoped the night would never end. Although I was stuck with lawn seats again, the sound quality had much improved from night one. Methinks many a people complained. ;-) Although, I must reiterate the poor sound quality was not the bands fault. LIOG, PFWYG, Granny, SMTS, Dancing Nancies, Cry Freedom, Dreaming Tree, what's not to love?! Jimi thing was the best version I've heard yet and they really jammed it out!!! Nice classic closer, a great end to a great night!!! ROCK ON!!!!

one of the best shows ever by any artist... much better than than the first night (17th).

User: steffman3

I thought this show was pretty incredible, especialy the encore. I have never seen boyd go so crazy at a show. His jammin on lie in our graves and jimmi thing was insane. I think the only thing that could have made this show better is if they had followed ants up with watchtower...

User: stewlax6

All I can say is WOW!!! Absolutely amazing setlist. The band was rocking, especially Boyd. AWESOME SHOW!!

User: stonek03

This was my first Dave show ever, and I thought they kicked ass. I love Granny to open, and get to see them play a wide variety of songs. The Maker, The Dreaming Tree, and The Stone were awesome. A real great jam in dancing nancies, jimi thing, and lie in our graves. Fantastic!!!

User: sweet_stylez

Show rocked... so many great songs... including a full band version of OSW (which I have only heard D&T do live)... Great finisher with Ants Marching... Best show i have seen period.

Oh dear lord, what can I honestly say? I was wondering how they were going to top the first show as we got to the venue, and they surely did just that. Pay for What You Get, Cry Freedom, The Maker, Dreaming Tree...all firsts for me (at least in the full band setting). By far, it has to be the best concert I've ever been. I'm still on cloud 9, and don't look to be coming down anytime soon.

This show was even better than the first night. "Dreaming Tree" was one of the biggest highlights of the night. "Cry Freedom" and "Jimi Thing" were great additions to the setlist also. This show was just an eruption of excitement.

User: tshaw143
Review:
The show was just unbelievable. I heard quite a few songs for the first time. PFWYG, Cry Freedom, The Maker, The Dreaming Tree. The entire show was great, but would have wanted a better set closer than WYA. It's not that bad of a song, i just didn't want to hear it. Also, has nobody noticed that Dave played a TEASE for ANGEL before playing JIMI THING. It just doesn't sound familiar b/c its with his acoustic guitar and by himself. If you've got a taper's copy give it a listen.
