Overall a fantastic show. Kill the King was great as was Idea of You. I really like what Rashawn Ross adds to the overall sound

This show was not quite as good as the Deer Creek shows I saw the weekend before, but still a good show in its own right. Big Eyed Fish was another great surprise to hear. The crowd sucked badly. This and the fact that the show was significantly shorter than the Deer Creek shows makes this show only average.

AWESOME!!!! My First Time In The Pavilion!

The show was incredible! The setlist was amazing! I NEVER thought I would hear JTR live!! Big Eyed Fish and Digging a Ditch were a bonus! Smooth Rider rocked. I can never get tried of Crush and I loved the first new song - looking forward to hearing that again!! Absolutely no complaints unless you count being soaked.

Pretty great show; Big Eyed Fish was out of nowhere! My only complaint was the crowd not being as into it as they should have! I think that's why we only got a 2 song encore.

Review:
AMAZING show....Easily the best setlist of the tour so far. I always love Liog and Too much was unbelievable. The only problem i had was all the people sitting down around me. These people were the reasons we only got two songs in the encore. But Tripping Billies was unbelievable anyways.

The rain at this show was half the fun, then rainbow,the setting sun, and the full moon, topped off the atmosphere feeling, this was possibly the happiest moment of my life,lol...

AWESOME show, one of the few i make it too every year...I called the Pantala opener months ago...shit myself when they actually opened with it...a great big eyed fish and Dave even broke a string on the billies encore but kept playing through it! what a show

User: Brut26
Review:
Decent show, but could have used one more song in the encore. We were in the lawn, and I have to admit the energy wasn't that great. I believe the rain through half the set had something to do with it. Seeing the rainbow and getting my first BEF helped. Next stop Blossom!

Classic. Rain all day until crash, giant rainbow over the entire pavillion=kickass. Oh not to mention the bringing back of big eyed fish after six years.

User: cinciballer88
Review:
maybe the only down time in the concert was crash, which is still always everyones favorite... BUT HOW BOUT BIG EYED FISH?! wait til you guys hear that it was outstanding... overall a crazy concert with the rain falling and a RAINBOW over the sky cant wait to relive this concert again!

User: ckozimer
Review:
Show was f'n amazing. Heard all the songs that I wanted to hear, and more. I mean, c'mon, Crash, Nancies, SMTS, Too Much, Crush, Stay, and Billies, all in one night. Granted I'm just as upset that it wasn't two nights, but what a hell of a night.

User: clobber
Review:
Absolutely loved it. Have seen the band about a dozen times over the last 10 years and this show was one of my, if not, my favorite! More edge than usual and the new songs were great!

User: crashunderstuff
Review:
rapunzel was a great start, but the show really took off at lie in our graves. big eyed fish was a huge suprise, and pure delight to hear. great show, only disappointment was no raven (seeing as this will probably be the only year they'll ever play it again), and i wish was a little longer, maybe one more song, maybe in the encore. overall, 2nd best show i've seen, behind our 2nd night 2003 show. loving the new songs as well, new sound yet ol' fashioned dmb fun.

My 10th show, and right up there with detroit winter tour 2005. HFTGL, yes, HFTGL was insane. LIOG was the best i've ever heard. Billies another highlight, but the biggest suprise was big eyed fish. When dave pulled out the 12-string i figured it was JTR and they busted out big eyed fish for the first time in years. AWESOME SHOW! Get this on a cd..

I thought this was an amazing show. It was my first Dave concert, and the first of three this summer. It was also my last night before going home for the summer from OSU. What a great way to end a year and start the summer!!!!!

Seen Dave Three Time's Best By Far...although the crowd sucked.

User: davejunkie1
Review:
The energy was pretty good. The full on rainbow was amazing during LIOG. Never seen a full unbroken one like that. Damn it was amazing. Good setlist and I got my JTR... haven't heard that since Alpine in 2000. I'm not sure what was with nobody in the lawn dancing. That was a downer... not really becauase I didn't notice till the end and I was doing my own thing. It seemed like no one except the 2 groups of people around me were into it. Did these people come to see a DMB concert or did they come to stand around? So many bored faces. I had a great time dancing and singing.

awesome show!! theres way too much to say about this show but the highlight for me was the rainbow during liog

User: DMB_36
Review:
i dont dare to come on here and bring everyones great energy down or even talk the least bit bad about the show. ive followed now for amlmost 6 years and about 18 shows. some meat heads were about to fight in the middle of the lawn (the warehouse lawn section) during the best part of crush. are you kidding me. after getting peed on by two guys last year night two and walking back to my car to find some other guy pissing on my car and bitting my tounge, i have about had it with this crowd. i love all of you that had a great time and let everyone know with your singing and dancing. unfortunately i didnt have that. i had to move for people walking by me every 5 fucking seconds. i had to yell at people to stop talking on thier phones all night. i was there to enjoy one of the greatest bands around today. i cannot take columbus crowd anymore. again i am sorry to those opposite of which i am speakin of. no one around knew any of the songs. some guy was on his phone talking to his friends during LIOG and didnt even know what song it was, he kinda seemed annoyed becasue they jamed forever ( i thought it was fucking amazing) Now on a much brighter note, how unfucking real was BIG EYED FISH. If there is a better setlist this year i hope it is at riverbend. this is the best show that i have attended with the full band. again sorry to vent. but i cant take it anymore.

Review:
What a great opening with Pantala/Rapunzel. Although JTR didnt didnt open like i predicted, it was great to hear it. Hunger FTGL is just a great hard rockin song, SMTS into ASTB into Too Much is always a thrill. felt like Boyd was a little off tonight other than in LIOG. Ah yes, and the new songs, Idea of You, really diggin it, seems highly carter inspired, and kill the king is not as good, but still decent. Was a little disappointed we didnt get a sister, but maybe at riverbend.

User: dr_watson_12
Review:
The PNP Rap to open was just sick, sick, sick. An extended LIOG & tasty Big Eyed Fish from the archives. Smooth Rider as good as that one gets (even without The Edge). It was nice to hear the So Much - Bridge - Too Much combo even tho I have heard Too Much too much. The Stay was very energetic. Another Ditch to follow the one in Indy. Billies was actually done without Dave flubbing the lyrics ala JazzFest. I like the new new song Kill the King, and The Idea of You is growing on me show by show. Unless there's a change, no more shows until Riverbend in early August...

Amazing! Even the rain and lightning couldn't slow the show down. G. Love was also very good to open.

User: ethaxton
Review:
Sweet show! No Everyday songs and only 2 stand up songs. Don't like the addition of Rashawn Ross, but I can deal with it if they keep it up with sets like this. King needs some work, but I think it could be good.

16th show was one to remember! great setlist, best smooth rider i've ever heard, great LIOG with the gigantic rainbow that i'm happy everyone else noticed, too. highlight of my night was getting to hear BEF, DaD, the two new songs, and BILLIES! i still swear it's the BEST live song period. the band was way more energetic than at deer creek 6-02-06, but the crowd on the lawn sucked. what's up columbus? the rain stopped by HFTGL but still no one sang, danced or even cheered. half the time we could barely hear the music over people's conversations. wtf? how are you gonna start fights on the lawn during dancing nancies? forget germain...can't wait til 8-1 in cincy!

Took my MOM! Yeah MOM! 78 years old and she JAMS the DMB concert - she even rated it a 7 out of 10 (and still listens to DMB today). My niece and nephew came too, and they had a great time... all in all a great concert, the rain was kind of a drag - because i had to trade seats with my niece and nephew to keep dry - HEY GERMAINE, yeah, you, you assholes... if you sell seats that are SUPPOSED to be under the roof - WHY DID WE GET WET? Really irritating.... but even the worst day at a dave concert beats the best day doing anything else (monkey sex exlcuded, of course)

Great show with some older jams.. not as much energy as Deer Creek (either night) IMHO, but still kick-ass!

amazing setlist, energy.. not too long, but sweet as hell. opening w/ my fave song, then an early LIOG, BEF debut, crush and stay. encore was quick, but still a blast. beat the hell outta the detroit show in my opinion. top 3 outta 10 i've been to.

Actually quite a nice set list with JTR, Big Eyed Fish, and Digging a Ditch. But for all the people who wonder why the crowd had no energy is because most of those people just go to smoke and don't even pay attention to the music. Trust me it's not that great of a venue because that's the only reason it's used...to smoke. It's a shame because this had the potential to be a great concert.

It was my first time at this site as I usually went to Pittsburgh and have to say I really enjoyed the show. Seemed to not be as overly crowded. A little more room to move around. The show itself was excellent. A nice blend of songs, though wish I'd heard a few others I'd prefered to hear. Loved the backdrop on the show this year. Very fun and unique. Definately in the top 5 shows I've ever been to.

This is my 11th show and it was pretty damn good. Big Eyed Fish was very unexpected. I really like Idea of You and Kill the King. Even though Dave only played one night in C-bus, it was still a very good show. It rained in the beginning, but thankfully stopped. Germain needs to get their traffic situation fixed for people coming into Germain..it took forever..we missed the first three songs because of it.

Loved the show, and Boyd certainly had the ENERGY!! Big surprise was BEF, and this was actually our first time to hear Crash live out of seven concerts. Had about ten other songs we would have loved to hear as well -- stupid 11:00 curfews. Stayed in a hotel across the street, so it was nice avoiding the traffic, but we had an 8:30 flight back home to Dallas the very next morning. :( However, this concert will be memorable as our daughter's first DMB concert!! I am currently in my third trimester of pregnancy, and I think my dancing kept her rocked to sleep during the concert until she started kicking during the encore. She wasn't ready for Dave to quit, either!!

Awesome show! Lie In Our Graves, Tripping Billies, Crash, Big Eyed Fish, One Sweet World, JTR, etc. Even the introduction of Kill The King and The Idea of You. We were spoiled with the classics and got a taste of what is to come.

Overall Show was good. Not the best, but not because of the band. What is up with Columbus? Only one night and the venue is not even full? Energy from the crowd sucked. There was a fight in the 5th row right behind us? Not much dancing, but the highlights are: BEF, LIOG, SM>ASB>SM, STAY, BILLIES, KILL THE KING, IDEA OF YOU. These new songs are excellent. I can't wait till riverbend in August to see how much they have grown! GET REAL COLUMBUS - THIS PLACE USED TO ROCK!

The band was awesome the crowd sucked. Of all the venues I have been to the crowd at Columbus is the worst, I mean come one, one night and can't fill the stadium. I hope they drop this stop. I had seats and the crowd down there was good but had friends on the lawn and went to party with them but by the way the crowd was walking aroung and talking you wouldn't have know a concert was going on. Quickly went back to my seat. Last time I go to Columbus (but I've said that before)

Awsome show, probobly the 2nd best of the 5 daves shows ive been two. The new tracks are awsome, and he played some of my favorite songs. The whole rain thing was a downer at first (i was right outside the covering, bleh), but it actually made it different and pretty cool.

My first DMB show, hooked ever since. Absolutely amazing, the rain made it even more beatiful, and I distinctly remeber the sun setting and the sound of Dave's voice. I looked up at the orange sky and never felt more alive.

Tonight was the 15th time I've seen DMB live and they did not disappoint in any way, shape or form. I haven't heard a killer set list like that in years, not to mention how tight the band sounded (including the new tunes). I won't comment on every song, but here's the highlights... PNP --> Rapunzel was a welcome and energetic opener. Big Eyed Fish was nice to hear again. While Dave had the 12-string out, they busted our JTR which I thought I might never hear again after they took it out of rotation a few years back. They've tweaked it and it sounded f'ing sweet. Smooth Rider was really good tonight: Dave rocked it out and Rashawn blasted like crazy. I was really impressed and enjoyed by The Idea of You and Kill the King. I'm a Stand Up fan, but those two new tunes are the best stuff I've heard from them in a while. Digging a Ditch was nice to hear again and Tripping Billies rocked the house to end the night. Overall, one of the best shows I've seen to date. The band was tight and energetic. Rashawn Ross added a nice flavor (I was initially unsure how his horn would fit into the band). Now I just wish this wasn't the only show I have tickets for this summer!!

This show was excellent except for the lawn crowd. Two fights broke out and if you weren't in the first two rows of the lawn, no one was dancing. Crash Into Me, the perfect song I needed. Been waiting to hear that one!! Tripping Billies, Too Much, and One Sweet World. Great show! Can't wait 'til August 1st in Cincy!!
