Solid show, heard all the staples i am used, crush, wwys, wtwe, and so on. Typical situation and minarets made it all worth it.

Review:
sub-par at best. felt like i was at an everyday recording session there for a little while. 'minarets' and 'typical situation' were nice, but 'what you are' as a closer, good grief.

Review:
great show overall, after a somewhat slow start. I think the highlight was minarets>typical situation. The band is a tight as I have seen them in years and look like they are having fun. They played a lot of the same stuff from the previous four shows, though.

strong beginning and ending a little slow in the middle

The show was amazing, from the beginning with "What would you say" then "Crush", then later in the evening getting to hear "Minarets" for the first time live, was the greatest. Then to come back out and close with "Cry Freedom" and "What You Are" granted it seems like that is becoming a staple for closing songs, it is still great to hear it live and in person

good show, but the second night blew this on away!!!

The show itself started off pretty good but the Encore was horrible. I wish I would have left to try and beat the traffic. I was dissapointed because the last show I went to he closed with Ants and Watchtower. At the Cincy show he played fool to think, sleep to dream her, cry freedom. Now come on Dave, just because you record songs does not mean you have to play them. Give us our money worth!

Great Show, too many scalpers as is always a problem in Cincinnati. Line up was good, but show seemed short.

User: BlazerX84

Excellent show, crappy venue. Minarets was a treat, as well as Kit Kat Jam...nice tease, I'm glad they DID play Bartender!

Night 2 was better. The boyz seemed a little lazy early on, but Typical Situation and Minarets seemed to liven them up. Pig was a mess tho.

User: chriswynn
Review:

Not the best Dave show. Compared to the next night, this one wasnt even close. If only i had gotten to go to the second night

User: curliegurlie
Review:

This was my first show. I wish I had gone on the 24th instead. Next time I know, DMB saves the best for last [show].

Good show. Second night was better

I was really dissapointed with this concert. He played the same songs he played in Columbus. The concert didn't even seem to get my attention. This is the worst concert I've seen Dave do, but it's still DMB so it can't be too bad.

Me and my buddy flew into Cincy for this one.Had a blast tailgating. The show was pretty good. Minarets into Typical Situation was the highlight for me. Had a fun post concert party in the lot too!

THIS SHOW WAS AMAZING. PIG WAS PROBABLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY NIGHT. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME HEARING IT LIVE, AND IT'S ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES. AWSOME SETLIST, PIG, MINARETS(AMAZING), KIT KAT JAM, CRY FREEDOM, ETC. THE LIST GOES WITH GREATNESS. JUST AN AWSOME ENERGETIC SHOW, CHEERS

The lawn could have cared less, where I was at least.

User: FpotusSCB
Review:
Sort of a disappointing show. WWYS was a nice opener and led to a nice run through Bartender, but the show just never really felt right. Carter was tearing it up all night, but everyone else was in and out and the energy was inconsistent. The undisputed highpoint of the show was the run from Minarets through Grey Street. Minarets was perfectly jammed out and Typical Situation was outstanding. Unfortunately the show deflated again after that with a lackluster main show closer in Too Much and a very disappointing WYA. It was clear that Dave toyed with the idea of switching out WYA for something else, it's just a shame that he didn't.

Excellent show. I've been to better, but Dave is always a great show. The volume could have been a little louder, but that is partly due to the shitty crowd. at first no one was really paying attention to the show and just kind of doing their own thing, but once it got dark everything started to fall into usual routine.

This was a great show!! Definately a top 5 on my list, it was great to see the come back of minarets!!! I thought i would never see that song!! Definately worth the drive from Atlanta,GA and I am looking foward to tomorrow nights show!!

This show was a good one for me, the 2nd one i have been to. I can't believe i was there to hear Pig. I still have yet to see Two Step or Rapunzel. Typical Situation was a nice additon to the evening.

It was an amazing show. He played the best set that I have been to yet. I took a friend to his first concert and no he is an avid dave fan. I just wish I had been in the stands instead of the lawn for this show.

Minnarets was unbelieveable!

User: ozctrain
Review:
Wow! The setlist was incredible for this show! The highlights had to have been Minarets into Typical Situation. Typical Situation kicked my ass. Jimi Thing was all good too. I very good first show to start the season off with for me.

Great show...lots of fun out on the lawn.

Review:
Probably the worst show i've seen so far. the crowd was horrible (old business looking people). But every show has it's high points. Cry freedom and what you are were a great close.

User: Rangers11
Review:
Good show, not great. Fan energy a bit low as was bands. Nice to here Minarets, loved the jam at the end, but crowd seemed lost. To many newbies perhaps. Typical was nice to hear for first time as full band for me. Tired of WYA for encore though. 3rd time in last 4 shows.

Great setlist!! Minarets ---> TS was amazing. Good Jimi Thing, powerful Cry Freedom (as always). Can always count on Too Much and Pig to be great performances. Second time I've heard WYA as a closer and Dave really puts everything into it. Debut of Sleep to Dream Her on the tour. It worked good as a break between Grey and Jimi. Show ended a bit early (encore was over at 10:30). Biggest thing I learned from this show is I WILL NEVER SIT ON THE LAWN AGAIN!! Meatheads out there are more into getting high and talking about everything but the show than actually enjoying the music. The return of Minarets and it was barely acknowledged out there. Live and learn.
