First Pit show!

Setlist was amazing, I don't know what you guy are saying. JTR and Run While We Can? That's just insane. Watchtower was perfect and Gravediger was too. Show was amazing and the rain made it better. Great show.

Starting the show off with JTR was cool since it was pouring!

I thought this was a pretty good show. The rain and lightning made the energy awesome. Ants was absolutely incredible. That song dominated. Road was decent also. Am wondering why Watchtower is being encored so much. Grey street, Rapunzel would have been better. Hopefully the Creek will have those songs!

This show was awesome because I was front and center and Dave kept looking at me - no joke! =)

Another dud at Riverbend. JTR opener with the rain storm was pretty cool, but the set was very low tempo and low energy throughout. Billies tried to pick it up in the middle, but then we went on a Digger>Cornbread>Road>Can't Stop>Crash>Spaceman run. Possibly the worst set I've seen.

Great energy from the band and the fans, but i left the show saying "was that it". the show really felt like it was cutoff, or more like a good movie/book with a bad ending.

Despite the Cornbread-Road-Can't Stop run, this show was actually a lot of fun. A great JTR opener, and one of the best Ants I've heard, plus a surprising Stay (at least for me, I thought the set was over after Ants) and an awesome Billies. Also, the BW songs sound 100x better than last year. Especially LITHOG. That song is unreal! I'd give the show as a whole a 3.5, but I rounded up to a 4.

DMB must have planned their set list to coincide with the weather because right as they sang "Rain, Rain down on me," from JTR, it SURE AS HELL DID! Loving singing along to "Lying in the Hands of God" while it poured on us on the lawn. Kind of a moving experience. Disappointed that DMB didn't play "Why I Am" as it is Leroi's song. Good throwbacks with Satellite, Ants Marching, and the sultry, Crash into Me. Good encore with two jams, Timebomb and All Along the Watchtower. Wish it could have been three songs to include a slow song first (like Sister, Typical Situation, Steady As We Go or, even more rare, I'll Back You Up!). Might see you in Columbus in a week and trying to get to the GORGE for the first time since DMB is taking 2011 off. I will say, despite the torrential downpours and amazing displays of lightning, the "ants" on the lawn had a great time! DMB love, Maryanne :)

I had an outstanding time at the show. JTR opener was sweet! The jam in Lying in the Hands of God was sweet. And how about that jam in Ants? I've never heard one that long, totally awesome though. The rain was outstanding. Encore was perhaps a bit week but the 41 tease was cool.

OK show. A couple of good gems. Could have done without Danny Barnes on his songs.

The 2 good things about this show were the first half and the encore. Other then that, very short, mediocre show at best. Also, I sure hope D.Barnes stays away from the stage for you folks going to Deer Creek this year!! If you see him up there, make a dash to the beer line...

Performance was strong but the setlist was weak. JTR, Break For It, Cant Stop, and Ants were the high points.

From the looks of the setlist, pretty drab and boring show. Going back and listening to it however, definitely some highlights not on paper. LITHOG = INSANE. Probably one of the greatest jams I've ever heard the band play, no joke. Ants was the best one I'd ever heard. Break for it was cool to hear and I enjoyed Stay having never heard it. Even in the lawn, high-energy show even with slower songs being played. Had a great time and I think everyone else did too minus the fact that they didn't play the rarities they had been.

Setlist was a little week, however I felt the crowd energy and playing was strong. By far the best version on Ants I have heard period.

When the band came out the sun was shining. By the chorus of JTR (rain down on me) the entire lawn was soaked and the rain was pouring down. Gravedigger was great, it was the shallow grave version. Stay was a perfect way to end before the encore.

Solid show, a little let down from the Riverbend shows from the past two years. I have to say I like Can't Stop much better with Timmy. O and CARTER = ENERGY, if he's excited about a song so is the rest of the band.

Can't complain about a Dave show, but i thought the setlist was a little underwhelming. Kept anticipating something amazing and was left disspointed... I did enjoy Break For It though..

This was my first live Dave concert. It rained, it pored, and I had a blast. I went away from the show with the biggest smile on my face.

User: nvolpenhein

I love a little rain at a concert, but the last two years in Cincinnati the people in the lawn have been absolutely dumped on. Thought the show was mediocre. But mediocre Dave is better than most.

I gave it a 3 because it just seemed like something was missing. The setlist was ok but no surprises. Break For It was good hearing it for the first time. Tired of Watchtower as the closer. Seemed like the show was short. Venue was nice but traffic afterwards was a nightmare.

I thought the show was great, although not my all time fravorite but still a great show. It was awsome to finally hear JTR and Cant stop but Cornbread was incredible!! The storms were awsome and made the show more intense. Cant wait for Dave to come back to Cincy in 2012. (I hope)

P.S. the very few of you that bitch and complain about getting rained on need to just stay home or take it in stride and have fun. Its meant to be a good time..

5 stars. Just an amazing show. Saw the band Sunday night at Bonnaroo and this show in Cincinnati had more energy even if each note wasn't as crisp or perfect. A few songs into it I thought it was 1995 or 1996 again! With 17 songs before the break and plenty of time left I was hoping for a longer encore so that's my only issue...I wish it would've lasted longer. Lots of songs about rain and monkeys tonight...LOL. Cincy just never disappoints. I'll be looking for a tape of this show to listen over and over again. JTR, Can't Stop, & Break For It put this setlist way above the Bonnaroo setlist for me. Here's looking forward to Deer Creek this weekend!

Tired of the fuckin rain! Set list JUST SUCKED! This is the show i get to hold me over till 2012!?Just GOD AWEFUL! So disappointed!

P.S. yes I will bitch about the rain, no I will NOT stay home. That rain DID NOT make that show anymore special.

Loved the JTR opener highlight for me was definitely LITHOG and Break For It. I could due without Time Bomb in the E1 slot but other than that the show was good throughout.

Set-list was very strange, never really had the big hitters you wait for. Billies was abbreviated and Ants really was the only song with energy. It was cool to here some new stuff, and see Danny Barnes, although he really struggled keeping up with the band during Corn Bread. I would have to say Lying in the Hands of God was the highlight, Jeff Coffin destroyed the extended ending.

The rain/storm cooled us off - which was nice. I had a great time but felt disappointed with the setlist and they seemed to lack some spark.
