Oh my god... far and away the best set list i have ever seen in person. Last stop, dreaming tree, #41, you never know, the stone, jane likes, seek up... words cannot express how awesome it was

I was front row at the show and had a great time. The set list was awesome. I was particularly psyched with song that jane likes and then when they broke into seek up--totally phat!!! and then i'll back you up. this was so sweet.

Awesome show! The guys were really on. Carter's god-like drumming skills blew me away. Highlights had to be Seek Up, #41, and Billies, but the entire set was amazing. I don't know if I can wait until Nashville to see em again.

Incredible show...band was extremely energetic...great setlist

User: bowman19

Amazing.

User: cheek77vols

Quite possibly the best DMB show I've seen. The middle section w/Seek Up, Last Stop, Dreaming Tree and #41 may be the best 4 song run I've heard live. And The Maker to boot!!!!! High energy.

User: Chris_Norris41
Review:
The show was absolutely amazing!!! Dreaming Tree, Last Stop, I'll Back You Up...the list goes on. IBYU was my highlight!!

User: CincyDMBfan41

Cincinnati always gets great setlists. And Riverbend is in a great setting on the Ohio River surrounded by woods. Also probably my only chance to see You Never Know live.

good show, not a bad venue either

User: deeznutz420
Review:
Un-Fucking-Believeable!!!! IBYU and Two-Step as an encore. OSW, TSTJL, #41, Dreaming Tree, Stay....Mother Fucker. If only he had played Granny. Other than that, the best night so far. I fell like saying fuck one more time so...FUCK (actually that was twice but who gives a fuck)

So much energy. Riverbend is close to home so it was special for me. Sweet show.

This show was so badass it wasn't even funny....Carter Beauford IS ILL, SOMEONE TAKE HIM TO A HOSPITAL NOW!!! When the band played Billies, Boyd and Stefan got into it and they started circling one another while Dave was off doing his crazy dancing and the solos were the best I've ever heard.....Stay was a wonderful surprise, LOVING it without the Ladies....IBYU and STJL were huge surprises, but I'd have to say the fact that there were no repeats from Night One was the best surprise!! Best show I've ever been to, can't wait til September!!!

AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

User: dmbbubba

Seek Up, Last Stop, Dreaming Tree. Best combo I've heard live. Boyd was a little off tonight but overall very solid show. Stone, Billies, IBYU, and Two Step made tonight very solid.

User: dMbCiNcy41
Review:
Finally IBYU! My favorite song. Amazing show!

User: dmbfan25

This show was electric, sitting only 9 rows deep was like being in heaven, the band's energy was one to remember, they played a great set and I think that this show is a must have. At the end of the show Dave and Carter threw the drum sticks that Carter used into the crowd. AWESOME

most amazing set ever!!!!! surprising ill back u up!!! last stop was crazy! i thought they were gonna stop after stay but kept going. lots of love on stage. after total show dave came back out to throw drum sticks with carter they hugged for a good 10 seconds on stage to praise each other after the awesome job they just did and walked off the stage with their arms around one another.

This show was amazing. I'll Back you up, Dreaming Tree, Maker, Song that Jane likes, Seek Up, etc. Much better than the night before, but I would have to say that Pig the night before was the highlight of my night. One way to explain the emotion: "Tears". Both nights were just unbelievable, and amazing. Can't wait until Deercreek. CHEERS!!!!

phenomenal show, crows was slow to get into it, but following seek up, everyone was loving it... tripping billies, stay, and of course 2 step were highlights of the night

This was my 12th show, and it was possibly the best one that I have ever seen. I had some pretty crappy seating (last row pavilion), but I would have sat in the parking lot, on the gravel if that is what it would have taken to hear that setlist. No matter how many times I hear Two Step it still gives me shivers! Last Stop, The Maker Dreaming Tree!!!! The boys get mad props for putting together such and amazing setlist!

Oh, My, Awsome. Much better than last night.

User: FpotusSCB
Review:
Definitely a better show than night 1. Although the boys suffered from an early fear of jamming and everyone except for Carter clearly not being into it, once they got to TSTJL they took off and never looked back. Carter's intro jam for Seek Up rivaled that of 12/21/02 and the boys put out the best Last Stop I've heard. Stay was incredible and Butch could easily pass for a lovely lady. And how can you go wrong with the nature intro to Billies and Carter exploding all over the place in both that and Two Step? And then I'll Back You Up...simply amazing. Ants would've been nice, Watchtower too, but all in all a solid show and I was fourth row...oh yeah.

User: Guitarzan041
Review:
Wow, this show was better than lastnights show i believe!!! I could of not asked for a better two shows, next stop is back stage in Saratoga and then last stop in Atlanta..

User: hamm1a
Review:
The Stone had an extended intro which was cool. In mid set they played probably the best three songs in a row ever (Seek Up, Last Stop, Dreaming Tree) Then that was followed with #41 so I guess I should say the best 4 songs in a row. The Maker and I'll Back You Up enough said. This was definitely one of the greatest shows I have been to.

User: Herm33
Review:
Best full band show I've ever seen, hands down. Great energy all night, and some of the best versions of certain songs (DDTW, Last Stop) I've ever heard.

3rd row in the pit - when dave strolled out and started the stone I blew a load all over the girl in front of me - sorry about that "something about mary" moment sweetie...

Of the 12 shows I have been to, this is by far the best set list and show I have ever seen. Incredible night !!

Good set list, however, it was pretty mellow. The three first timers that were with me were disappointed. But it was still a DMB show, and a good one.

The band was on fire, best show I've seen in a long time

User: joh813
Review:
it is one of the best setlist i've ever seen, although they don't play crush or crash into. They go old school with song that jane likes and jam on #41 and many others

User: justmebd
Review:
This was such a great day even before the show started. To date this is the best show I've ever been to. Great setlist, great energy, and I made a bunch of new friends that day that still are my friends when I posted this over two years later.

This was such an awesome show...I was so excited to hear Seek Up, The Song That Jane Likes, and I'll Back You Up in concert. YAY!!!

User: keystone

User: kfiredanzr
Review:
Up until the end, this show was pretty chill...with songs like OSW, You Never Know, Satellite, Seek Up, etc, you aren't very hyped...not that they're not great songs, you just can't jam to them...anyway, Stay was amazing, probably the best I've seen, and Tripping Billies was an excellent closer. When they came back out, I wasn't paying attention when they started playing, and everyone was saying, "Cry Freedom (first encore) AGAIN?! What the hell?!" but then he said, "I remember thinking," and I went bizerk...WOW!!! and then Two Step, I mean, are you SERIOUS?! Those are my two favorite songs!!! I would have paid $56 just to see those two as an encore!!! Thanks for a memorable evening guys!

What a great show... First of all opening with The Stone is just incredible. Then, Seek Up, The Last Stop, The Dreaming Tree and #41 all in a row! That is crazy! Other highlights were The Maker, Tripping Billies, and I'll Back You Up. Actually the whole show was absolutely amazing. Out of the 7 shows I have been to this has been the best

After the mind-blowing show we witnessed a week prior in Columbus, me and my friends just HAD to see them again. So the next day we went out and bought lawn tickets for this show. It was just as amazing, a night I\'ll never forget. I recall Last Stop and Dreaming Tree being particular highlights for me, and the IBYU / Two Step encore was nothing short of magic! If I could go back and relive 10 experiences from my life, this night would be one of them! I was 21, and having the time of my life!

The hands down best show i've seen in my life. The boys were absolutely on fire tonight. The song selection was great and i've never heard carter and boyd be so on. Tripping Billies was the best version i've heard. To sum it up it was one of the best nights of my life.

Set list from Song That Jane Likes on is incredible. Mnay first time tunes for me. Energy from Tripping Billies off the chart. Crowd took awhile to catch on to I'll Back You Up.

This is without question the best show I have ever attended. I'll back you up was just stunning. I can't believe this setlist. I'm literally in shock over getting 41, last stop, seek up, song that jane likes, dreaming tree, and two step ALL IN ONE SHOW. First time ever for 41, which was killer. best. show. ever.

The last stop was great here... Missed two songs b/c I got overheated (bad weed helped that out).. But this was a great concert featuring "I'll Back You Up" which sealed it for me

Freaking Sick. Carter and Butch deserve mad props for their great vocals. The set was amazing, but I was especially impressed by Stefan's solo on I'll back you up. I think he needs to get into more solos.

User: tbholc

The best setlist I have ever seen, 5 songs from Remember Two Things. What a surprise Song that Jane likes was, and the Maker. The band had great energy, you could even feel it from the lawn.

The best show I have ever been to hands down. The band had a certain chemistry together tonight and were having a lot of fun. 20 minute Seek Up was incredible. Played my favorite songs back to back (Dreaming Tree/41). Band was having a lot of fun on DDTW. STJL, Seek Up, LS, DT, 41 was probably the most amazing solid hour+ of music I've heard them play. Thought that Stay was going to be the end of the main show (great energy on that, Carter and Butch hilarious but dead on as "lovely ladies") but they just kept going. Boyd was off the hook on Billies. Stefan's solo on IBYU was incredible. That song had me inches from tears. Two Step as encore closer was great. Longest show they've played so far this year and I got to see it all from the third row (thank you Warehouse). I don't know if this show can ever be topped. Plus I got to meet Boyd earlier in the day (incredibly nice guy). Thank you DMB for everything!!

Out of 21 shows, this is in my top three shows EVER. I still listen to this show all the time... GOD what a setlist! And the most smokin' DDTW of all time. I took two non-DMB fans who were absolutely converted by the end of the evening. Loved it loved it!

First of all, this was my first Dave concert. This will be the last time I make the mistake of viewing them from the lawn. My concert enjoyment was severly attenuated by the chaos of all the high schoolers running around and chattering during during the whole set, especially during songs they appeared not to recognize (anything not on Everyday and Busted Stuff in this case). Oftentimes, the lyrics were drowned out by all the boisterous kids around me. I don't know who is at fault, the inconsiderate fans or the venue. The volume seemed rather light to me. Comparing it to Deer Creek (aka Verizon Music Center) in Indianapolis, where you have to yell at the top of your lungs to be heard by someone 5 inches from your mouth, the music was MUCH softer. I was even in the front 10% of the lawn and almost directly under a speaker. I can't imagine what it was like in the back of the lawn. Regarding the content, I liked what I heard. It seemed to take them a while to get going, but Seek Up changed that. I would have loved to hear Last Stop and Dreaming Tree, but people were making too much racket, especially during Dreaming Tree. It was really unfortunate. The emotion coming off all the songs was really like a rollercoaster. The band would go from a high energy jam into a more mellow, softer piece. The crowd seemed to lose a lot of momentum duing these transitions. Two cases were from Last Stop to Dreaming Tree and Stay to The Maker. I would have loved to hear them segue Two Step into Ants Marching for the finale, but the extened version of Two Step was good, nevertheless. My personal highlights were Seek Up, Last Stop, and Two Step. Hopefully next time I go there will a better sonic environment and more energy will carry from song to song.
