I remember him cutting LIOG off and picking it up for the encore - that just got me SO geeked up for the Gorge, when he split it across NIGHTS...

Good show overall...lots of energy. LIOG was classic with the reprise in the encore. I always wondered if they would do that - really cool to be there when it happened.

Lots of Pot.
Good Jam on Jimi Thing...Boyd played really well and the addition of the horn section was impressive

I have been to many Verizon Wireless 2 day shows in Indy. Nothing compairs to Dave's atmosphere there. He loves that place and always has a good show. This show in Cincy was 2nd to best than a Verizon show. My only comment is, make sure you get plavilion tickets or you get up close in the lawn. Lawn speakers and video screens aren't the best.

great show scored box seats and parking pass outside day of which was sweet! however box seat have ups and downs the downs most notably are that the people sitting around you dont give a shit about the show and talk and wait for satellite to rear its head but the bathroom was stage right so that was cool

Great show! The new songs just keep getting better and better! LIOG into Cornbread was smooth and then bringing LIOG back during the encore to finish it was very nice. Stand Up with Joe Lawlor was pretty good. Ants was just awesome. Billies was great as always! That was my third show in about a week and a half all three were great!

This was a so/so set overall. However, the encore was outstanding. The LIOG reprise>>Billies was fantastic. One of the coolest things I've seen at a concert, Dave or otherwise.

Great Show!!! Couldn't beleive the LIOG reprise. Great to hear DMB playin a great set in Cincy. As usual DMB kept me rockin out the whole show despite the ridiculous heat. Loved it.

Gravedigger!! Two Step was an incredible closer as can be attested to on the 2007 concert sampler. What a great show!

Compared to Cleveland, this was a million times better. The band was great as always but the set had a bunch more flow to say the least. LIOG, Corn, WWYS, Shot, Grey into Jimi WOW. Cornbread is just great live, I like this more and more everytime I hear it. Bayou has become a staple and is always fun. Great to hear Gravedigger again, although was hoping for Some Devil. Finishing LIOG into Trippin was a great end to a great nite.

Great work fellas.
Rapunzel early on to get the energy level up, greamgirl, where are you going, LIOG!!!!!awsome!
when i heard grey street i had to find a way to get closer and it was Definitly worth the struggle to hear the LIOG reprise followed by billies to end an awesome show!!!
I usually buy lawn tickets but after the 8-22-07 show i will go nothing less than first section pavillion. Best Show ive seen

These people who are knocking the 8/22 show are crazy... first of all Dvae blew the roof off the river band Boyd was OUTSTANDING on all his solo's, and not to mention you could tell Dvae was switching up the set list as he was going and feeding off the crowed, it had to of been 95 degrees out still when dave came out on stage, not to mention he changed his shirt 3 times.. the band looked like they were having so much fun up there last night and from the 7th row i can tell you best shoe ive seen by far.. L.B. was off the hook!!!! 5 stars all the way

Good show, lots of energy. The entire crowd was into it. All in all it's Dave, never been to a "bad show". Traveled very far this show so I was Psyched the whole trip and it made the show that much better for me (Long Island, NY to Riverbend, OH !!)

Just got back and I'm completely inpressed. 3rd show and definitely the best. The Lie in Our Graves encore reprise was fucking genius. Pantala/Repunzel opener was a great choice. New songs were awesome. Corn Bread is killer and it's nice to see Shotgun coming back. Great to hear ants. Spot-On solos from everybody, Rashawn is really coming into his own and he's a great complement to Leroi, he's pushing Leroi to sound more and more original. Bravo!

The LIOG reprise in the encore sent this show into my top 5. WWYS and Jimi Thing were greater than the usual. LIOG > Cornbread was the coolest segue I have seen at any concert. #27 is evolving and Shotgun is just a fine piece of music. Stand Up was surprisingly great with Joe Lawlor. Love this show and must get the tape.

The band was tight and full of energy tonight. PNP>Rapunzel was great and every song Boyd had a solo in was amazing. I love the feed of energy that Roi and Rashawn have off of each other. The only bad (if you could even say that) part of the show was Dream Girl. WWYS was one of the best versions I have heard with great energy and crowd participation. Jimi Thing was Tight. Joe Lawlor on Stand Up rocked the house. I thought Bayou was going to be the closer and couldn't believe it when I heard the snare drum intro to Ants!!!!
What can I say about the encore. Gravedigger was tight as usual but the LIOG reprise was a complete surprise. Although I did realize it was missing midset, it was really awesome on its own in the E2 slot.

I had the best time at the show. I was able to take my 2 daughters (ages 10 & 7). They had a kick ass time, even with the heat! The energy was amazing during the whole night. I was blown away with each song. Opening the show with PNP/Rapunzel and ending it with Ants...THAT is a DMB show (IMO)!! The encore was just the cherry on top...for sure!
I cant wait to take the girls next year!

my third and final show of the summer and the best so far. my night was almost ruined by a guy who pissed on me and then tried to fight but with a nice bayou into ants ending how could i be upset. this was one of the best shows he's played at riverbend in a while, loved the new stuff especially eh hee. see everyone next summer, keep rockin out boys!

Amazing show. Second one of the summer for me. I was at Tweeter in Camden on the 8th. Unfortunately I was a little intoxicated for that one, but I was well aware of this show. Been seeing Dave at Riverbend for several years now, and this has been his best. LIOG reprise was very sneaky and very fucking cool. Pantala/Rapunzel opening was great, and Finally got to see Billies live for the first time. That was great for me.

Really outstanding show in all respects. My 9th show overall and second show this summer and this was easily one of the best I've been to. Dave's high energy level was contagious as solos from Boyd, Roi, and Rashawn (I really enjoy the sound he brings to the table) were exceptionally well done tonight. My hats off to them for pushing through the OUTRAGEOUS heat and keeping the crowd thoroughly entertained. Highlights included PNP>Rapunzel opener (one of my favorites), each of the new songs, better than average performances of WWYS, Stand Up (w/ Joe), LIOG, and Ants. Of course the LIOG reprise was a very clever touch as well - glad I was a part of that!

Good show, enjoyed hearing a couple new ones for the very first time (#27 and Cornbread) and some improved versions of newer tunes I had all ready heard (Idea of You and Shotgun). Joe Lawlor rocked the house on Stand Up and who doesn't enjoy Ants as a closer?! Oh, and the LIOG reprise...hell yeah!!

Not sure how to work through this just yet. But.....What's up all you music lovers. This should be an experience for me. See you all soon. Oh yeah "#27" and "Ee Hee" are quickly becoming my new favorites since I had heard them at the 8-22 Cinci concert. If anyone has tab for these yet, I'd love to see them.

This is not my favorite venue at all. It gets muddy and isn't steep enough for good lawn seats. My home venue is Noblesville, and it has an amaazing lawn so this wasn't up to par. Otherwise, it was a nice concert. My highlights were LIOG and its reprise plus Stand Up!

Great setlist, but it was so friggin hot,a nd we got rained on right before the show started, so that kinda sucked. The set list made up for it though. Still a DMB show, si I cannot complain. Loved it!!

Had a great time. Pnp>Rapunzel to start - no better way to begin a show. Ants before encore was fun. LIOG with reprise was a cool change. As always, Jimi Thing was appreciated.. i thought the new songs were promising. The weather ended up not being so bad for me - with the downpour shortly before the show cooling things a bit. I thought Pete Yorn was pretty good too, including the Elvis tribute. Dave and the band seemed to me to be having fun, although they were drenched in sweat. The video backdrop was decent too, without being distracting. All in all a great show. I personally am still yet to see #41 live, and would have liked some rarer songs, like Dreaming Tree, Halloween, #40.
