ive been to 4 shows this summer and all the sets have ended with Too Much or Crush into Stay. We really need to think of something new besdies stay because it makes me not want to. The coolest thing of the night was them busting out Stand Up for the first time since 05 and thats not saying much.

What a great great show.... SO good to hear Stand Up.... I love everything they played, especially cause i wasn't in the rain... EeHee is smokin, and so is every other new song being played on this tour. Too bad the night had to be ruined by getting stuck in the mud, and ruining an alignment cause of the tractor. Yes, we were the very last car to get draged out of the mud.

Show was good! The new version of Dreamgirl is much better I think! Cornbread for the second time was even better! Eh Hee was excellent. Idea of You and Shotgun were excellent. You Might Die Trying is better than before! And Watchtower, Watchtower, Watchtower!! Pretty good set list. No complaint from me!! Can't wait for Cincy!!

this was my 1st DMB show, after years of wanting to get to one. i had high hopes, wanting to hear more of the songs that got me hooked on DMB. even though it was alot of new stuff, and rained all night on us in the lawn, i had a great time.

to those that post not being happy with the show....

i wish i was in your shoes to be able to compare it to the other 10 or 20 something DMB concerts i had been to. this was my first. be happy you get to go to that many.

2 reasons why this show was rated a 4 and not a 3...Opening up with Two Step was great. The encore with Dave solo on Gravedigger, then closing with Watchtower. The rest of the show was on par with most other shows.

It mixed the band's energy with some serious jams. Every year, Dave and his band keep getting better and better.

The show was not as good on paper as it was being there, but it still ranked low on my list. Two Step opener was great, but they needed to stick a high point somewhere mid to late set, that 'climax' usually makes great shows for me, and the few that I've been to with no mid-late climax don't end up being as good.
But, after driving through brutal weather from Dayton (weather brutal enough to the point where I question whether my car will make it through the storm), the experience of the show was heightened.

The Warehouse randomly upgraded me to front row seats right in the freaking middle of section 13!! I kid you not. I have paid $350 a ticket for 8th row seats before and it hurt my credit card pretty bad. I could not ask for a better show!! Thank you Warehouse forever!!

The band jammed out tonight... set list was pretty much the same as burgettstown... This is 2 years in a row now where the set lists for theses 2 shows have been nearly the same and they venues are only 2 hours apart and pull a lot of the same crowd... nice to hear stand up and ehyee sounds like it can develop into a pretty good band song... gravedigger was worth price of admission alone...

This show wasnt the best Dave show Ive been too, although the band played with great energy. If you are new to the Dave scene, you might get mixed feelings about the band on tour playing the setlist they played. Old school fans will be dissapointed at the setlist. But all and all It's DMB Live and they can perform!!! I enjoyed Cornbread of all the new songs, along with Shotgun. It was nice to here Grey Street, and Gravedigger. I took a friend who had never been to a dave show before and He LOVED the show. Good job to the Boys on stage....Just wish they'd release a new studio album again soon. And wish they would play a few less Unknown songs on the road...Kinda a crowd/venue Killer if you know what I mean.

The show started with alot of energy, but kind of fizzled through the middle. I personally love every show I can attend, however this was the first time I have ever been to a DMB show and heard people around me asking, "when is this going to be over". The new songs need alot of work in my opinion, but #27 and cornbread are already fan favorites judging from the reaction they received last night.

Wow what a complete bummer. With that being said the band was definitely into the show and gave an excellent effort. But in the general the show lacked any type of pace. The set list in general was very very sub par, with strong emphasis on newer material. Normally I would have no issue with this, especially since the new songs were very enjoyable, especially corn bread. However combined with the newer songs from stand up the flow just did not maintain. Too open with two step and go right into dream girl, it was just a complete letdown. But as always the guys were on musically. Here is hopin tomm nite in Cinci has a bit better flow to the show. By far and away the least enjoyable Dave show I have seen out of the 14 so far.

What is a DMB show without rain? I was immediately impressed with the physical specimen that is the Blossom Center. The show was good. I had an intriguingly delightful time with a less than flawless version of Stand Up. Grey Street was sweet with the rainfall, and I was pleasantly surprised to hear Idea of You. Unfortunately, my fantasies for Sweet Up and Down were not fulfilled. Overall, it was another enjoyable DMB experience tho.

Show energy was amazing!!!! Set list was a little wishy washy (did anyone else feel like it was a show from the Stand Up tour?!?) Grey Street was AMAZING, hands down the best I have ever seen. Full band Eh Hee may be one of my new favorites

Definately not worth the drive from central New York. This was my third and last show of the tour and it felt extremely redundant. Dave really has to start mixing up the set and stop playing the same songs in the same order. After the Two Step opener I have wanted for a long time the show was pretty bad. Hopefully if they do a winter tour things will be different.

first time I had travelled to a show and it rained most of the time... however still a great show. a little too much overlap on the set list with the show I attended on 8/10 at post-gazette, but glad to hear dreamgirl, two step as the opener was a surprise, shotgun and idea of you sounded the best I had heard them, grey street was tremendous, and stand up was a very nice surprise as on the way to the show I was listening to it on weekend on the rocks and thought it would be really cool to hear live. nice venue, I would attend another show there in the future.

Anyone who lives near Blossom knows how the weather was for 2 days before the show. I was expecting it to be a nightmare in the lawn. But it really wasn't that bad. Loved the set, Two Step to open was a great tone setter and everything else just seemed to fall into place. Best Blossom show I've ever seen.

This was an okay show, in which I heard a lot of songs I wanted to hear, but it was also disappointing in some ways. Way too many songs from Stand Up. Also, too many chill songs. The energy level never exploded like it could have because he didn't pull out the faster songs like Warehouse and TB to get everyone going. Cornbread was awesome, I love Shotgun. Watchtower made it all worth it. Crush was a treat to hear. But, get Stand Up songs outta here.

Show 35. Pretty average show for Blossom. amazingly enough, it was simple in AND out of the parking lot. Warehouse finally gave up some good tix...15th row. The beginning of tonights setlist seemed more energized than the end. Songs like Too Much and Stay can go into a vault somewhere. The guys really bring great energy on the new stuff...people that go to the bathroom during these songs aren't too bright. Will Dave ever play Seek Up in Northeast Ohio again???? Yes, that was me screaming for it just to the right of the stage.

Better all the time! My only complaint is mix it up from Post Gazette...the two venues are so close and the set lists were so similar just 10 days apart (although sweet up and down again would have been great!)...but would have liked to hear more variety from last week...it's never enough! Great show.

Mediocre. The band had pretty decent energy but the setlist left a lot to be desired. Grey Street and Gravedigger made the night for me. Other than that it was okay, I still had fun, but Blossom in '05 with Robert Randolph jamming to Louisiana and Stand up was 10 times better than this show. Happy I went but a little disappointed.

The new songs were fantastic, but honestly this was the most boring show I've ever been to. The sound was awful on the lawn and with the exception of Watchtower, the setlist was not very colorful. He needed to liven it up, especially since everyone was getting soaked.

a pretty random set list opening with two step (he never does that) and consisting of a lot of newer songs(#27, Eh Hee, Cornbread) but it was enjoyable. the consistant downpour of rain made it an out of world experience out on the grass. solid show.

I've only been to three Dave shows...the '05 and '06 Blossom Shows and this one. I'd say this one beat last year's just by the energy...maybe the rain helped. '05 was still the best for me, poppin my cherry and all.

I thought that the guys had more energy than last week in PA. I ws hoping for a better set list. I am tired of Hunger and You Might Die Trying. The setlists need to be mixed up more and maybe play a little less new stuff. Does he ever sing the same lyrics to Shotgun? I love that song and it is never the same. Can't wait until next year.

Although some of the new songs seemed pretty good it would have been nice if they didnt play every single new song! Probably the worst setlist ive seen, and if it wasnt for the encore I probably would have to pass on next year's show.

Only 5 songs differed from the playlist at burgettstown, and I missed the two step opener because of the ridiculous weather. Any dave show I get to see is a priviledge, but I would have liked to see a wider variety of songs, especially with Cuyahoga and Burgettstown being so close, you've got to think that a large number of people attended both shows. I've never seen people leave a dave concert early before, and there were people streaming out before the encore even started. The crowd energy was terrible, and I felt the band tried to pick it up by bringing extra energy of their own, especially on bayou, but there's only so much they can do. Better setlist next time, I can only hope.

Wow, I never thought I could be disappointed by a DMB show, but the sound where we were on the lawn was just awful. After all I had read about Blossom, I couldn't wait to go. It was such a let down, and we will not make the trip from WNY again.

I thought even though the set list consisted of A LOT of unheard songs they still played one heck of a show. Opening with 2 step definitely got the crowd up and moving. This was my 5th Dave concert and even though he didn't play a lot of his older stuff, FINALLY getting to hear watchtower live definitely made my night. His newer songs have some killer potential and i am newly obsessed with cornbread.

The peformance overall was great like usual. But the set list was pretty awful. I can not believe they busted out six new songs and I didn't even count how many Stand Up songs were played but there was a lot. Two Step as the opener set the pace for what I figured what going to a nice set list and amazing show. Great peformance, very, very sub-par set list. I'm glad I finally heard "Stay" and "All Along The Watchtower" but I think the highlight for me might have been "Gravedigger". The crowd wasn't as good as they usually are Blossom shows, but I guess we can thank the horrible weather, which wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be because of the way the Weather Channel built it up to be so bad. Still glad I went and had amazing time, I just wish the set list was different.

This was my first DMB show. I know, I know, I am late to the party.

Starting off with "Two Step" was great. However, the crowd seemed to slow down a bit for songs like "Eh Hee" and "#27". Good songs, but not known by everyone.

I really liked "Grey Street" and "Crush". I admit, I was hoping for "Ants Marching" in the encore, but "You Might Die Trying" was all right.

Not the best Dave show i've ever seen...but it was still good.

We left right before Gravedigger and fortunately we got out of lot 1. We walked way too f-in far to our car and were lucky to get up the hill without spinning the wheels on our car. Also, Considering the apparent no tailgating rule, I saw plenty of people out partying beforehand.

Being one thats seen DMB mostly at Darien Lake, I'll probably never go back to Blossom. You could barely hear him on the lawn, the parking sucked, and i'm sure it took people hours upon hours to get outta there

Great time first seeing Eh Hee but other than that... too much Stand Up but I enjoyed all the new tunes. Just a bit too similar to the Pittsburgh show 2 weeks ago. Oh and the parking/driving situation was terrible
