I have gone to the past 10 shows in WPB. This one would have to be one of the top shows. DMB Rocks!!

very disappointing show, and i'm not sure why...the previous year was absolutely outstanding, but there was something not quite right w/ this show...the passion didn't seem to be there...
the other problem was with how the fans treated the parking lot so poorly - they were freaking disgusting with trash, pee, etc...
Hopefully this year will be better!

Hell ya what a sweet show, like the first night the band came out firing on all cylinders Donít Drink The Water awesome opener got the crowd really pumped, Jimi Thing and Say Goodbye had really some just damn good jams weaved into them, and could it be Dreamgirl oh ya, my first Lie In Our Graves and The Dreaming Tree I was thrilled to hear those bad boys, Two Step and Warehouse sweet and smooth as always, all these songs had some sick jams as well, and the encore WOW really wasnít thinking they where going to play two especially American Baby IntoÖ> Watchtower, there are no words for me to explain the amazing music, energy, and talent that is on stage every damn time I see the boys play, what I heard not only tonight but the first night as well was truly unbelievable the guys played some good shit, and they must just love South Florida they always look like they are really into the show and having a good time on stage. The only low point is the dumb ass people who donít really give a shit about the show, who leave there seats during the show all the time, wha I just donít get it, you are standing in front of the best live band ever and they just leave like itís no big deal, just donít come, and let real fans enjoy the show. What an awesome weekend, really hopping for a winter tour or spring tour.
ok fine i do agree dmbnut36 "Fucking best show ever" well lets say these where the Fucking BEST SHOWS EVER. shit lets call the warehouse and ask for this to be the 10th livetrax just like the fans did for fenway. email me at chasebowa@gmail.com if your in.

Best show I've seen in years.. it took me back to the days after Crash was released.. amazing long jams. Jimi, LIOG, SG, Warehouse, 2 Step, and Watchtower... then toss in DT, ABI, Dreamgirl. great stuff...

gotta give a shout out to the Wailers as well, definatly put me in the mood. thought we might get Exodus or something from DMB but didn't need it.

1st time in WPB and I'd definatly go back.. nice venue, even from the lawn

This was the best show I've been to to-date. they played all their big numbers and played them oh so well. Every single note of every single song was amazing, perfection. However, although I Love "The Dreaming Tree", it was probably the longest jam EVER.

Good show. Unbearably hot for most of it though. That may be why I can only give it a four. I am fast beginning to hate catching the Summer Tour in Florida...eesh just nasty humidity this time of year.

Other than that the band seemed to be feeling the heat too but they kicked ass as usual anyway. The setlist was less than steller compared to the night before. I could cry for missing that show...but I suppose that's how karma balances us out for the great Gorge seats we were given. Ah...but I could still cry for missing Friday night's set. But I digress...

I loved Say Goodbye...what a great song live. LIOG was so damned beautiful it brought tears to my eyes, Boyd has really been killin me softly this tour. Just fantastic! American Baby intro was badass and I LOVE the new salsa addition to Warehouse.

My friend caught Carter hangin out of the tour bus on the way out waving at people with his trademark grin firmly in place. I was on the phone with her at the time and it made me smile to think of his happy ass Saying Goodbye...

Fun even with the heat.

I strongly believe that these WP dates will be an upcoming addition to the Live Trax collection. By far, one of the "jazzier" DMB shows I have ever seen. I would most definitely have to put this one in my top 3.

Definitely a more mellow crowd then what I'm used to up North-so many chairs and blankets! It was good to open with DDTW, then Jimi was great, then Say Goodbye! It was my first time hearing it this tour. The Boyd solo on Graves was amazing, one of the longest I've seen-and we got the reprise which I've never seen. ABI was freakin AMAZING and Watchtower, as always, had great energy. No "Louie, Louie" during Warehouse, but the guys looked like they were having fun all night. Carter was making funny faces into the camera, Dave spoke a lot, and he looked a little red on the cheeks-maybe from the beach?

AMAZING. I WAS 5TH ROW CENTER. I WAS TRIPPING BILLIES...even though they didn't play it this time :)I need to say that opening with Don't drink that water was totally perfect, and it sounded even better than the live version from 05' that they put on BOWA, which I didn't think could happen, because I was at that show too. Then came Jimi Thing into Buffalo Springfields For What It's Worth, which really set the mood for Say Goodbye. Carter made a face at the end of the opening solo that I will never forget, but I am sure that solo was exhausting. After that me and my buddy took a break from the intesity of 5th row and went to the lawn. Plus we needed a "smoke" break, since you can't smoke under the covering. (Fuck you Sound Advice) We did Dreamgirl and Die Trying up at the lawn. Then we went back to the front lines for Dream So Real, Where are you Going, Warehouse, Two Step, Lie in Our Graves, and Cornbread. I don't need to even describe how amazing those lights got around the end of Two Step. I almost lost my head. After Cornbread we felt another "smoke break" was in order, so we went up to the lawn and met up with our girlfriends. We let them go to the front for Dreaming Tree, and Idea of you. Then they came back, and we went back down for Stay and American Baby Intro. Once Stephan started playing the intro to TOOL'S Schism I knew that Watchtower had to be coming, so we scampered back to the lawn for a last smoke out. My life was then completed. Thanks for an amazing evening Dave, Carter, Leroi, Boyd, Stephan, Butch, and Rashawn, as well as the Marley's and the Wailers who did a great opening act both nights. By the way, Boyd Tinsley is the one who interacts with the crowd the most in my oppinion. I know that me and my buddy were the only two in the first 20 rows that were under the age of 30 it seemed, and without a doubt the only ones "tripping billies." Not that I like to pick favorites, but he was definetly aware that my buddy and I were on mind expanding substances, and he got really close to us many times, and was looking us in the eyes, with that big smile you always see in pictures, and it seemed like he was just jamming for us at times. I thought that was really cool that they each have they're own personality onstage though, and you realize how much they enjoy what they do when you get close enough to them, and you see how much they put into their shows and making them the best that they can. They get better every year, and I can't wait till next summer. Thanks again boys. I'll be up close at Saratoga next year, and of course, back at Sound Advice for the back to back performance. PEACE AND UNITY. Oh and P.S. LIVE TRAX AND/OR Live Release NOW. TOTALLY IN ORDER, AND OVERDUE FOR A VENUE THAT SELLS OUT BOTH NIGHTS EVERY YEAR. Where you at on this one WAREHOUSE? ANYONE WHO WAS THERE EITHER NIGHT PLEASE VOTE!

As so many have said, this was a show that many of us will never forget. It was the best show of any artist I have ever seen. I am upwards of 48 and have been to 100s of great shows like U2, Talking Heads in their heyday, Police, Peter Gabriel, etc. and this show had such great energy; such great communication between the musicians.... hmmm... sweeet!

Great show. A ton of fun and a nice way to close out the 2007 tour (for me anyway!). Great to see Say Goodbye and DDTW. Overall it was a great tour with the historic Piedmont Park concert highlighting not only this tour, but every one of the 21 shows I've ever been to.

Overall the tour itself was awesome. Dave brought back some great, great songs (Sweet Up and Down, Dreaming Tree, the Maker) and other than A Dream So Real I love love love the new tracks more than Chris Crocker loves Britney Spears (Crocker is an obligatory reference as he is the funniest human being alive today). Cornbread is a ton of fun, #27 is an awesome slow song which is, in terms of lyrical quality, the finest of the new songs and Eh Hee is just pure awesome energy. The Idea of You and Shotgun, though they appeared last year, are fine additions to the new material (especially Shotgun). Other than A Dream So Real, I really hope ALL of the new tracks make the album...whenever it is finally released.

SEE YA NEXT YEAR DAVE!! Hopefully next year you'll replace Louisiana Bayou with Best of What's Around so I can hear that tune a million times in a row.

Great show. Hot night, and the band was hot too. Great to see Say Goodbye and Dreaming Tree, and Lie in Our Graves with the reprise was awesome. As someone else posted, the Tool interpolation was in Stefan's solo before Watchtower was cool. A friend of mine told me it was the best show he's seen, and it was def up there in my top 3 or so in my 15 shows. A Dream So Real needs a little work IMO, but the newer songs are OK for the most part. See ya'll next year in W Palm.
