Out of my 10 shows this summer, this was the only one i did lawn. I found the crowd around me to be very unfriendly. The set list was predictable and Dave fumbled in a few songs.

One of the 2 girls sitting next to us on the lawn was a bitch and of course the song she wanted to see the most was Crash! We tried to be so so nice to her too but she was a miserable woman! I did like this venue though!

I was not there but Sammie got to go. Great crowd, great pictures and great set list. I had tried to work on several shows this year but never knew where I was going to be and not having the money to buy whatever and then sell. I did get a friend front row seats at DTE with her grand daughter and Carter gave her a drum stick.

Went with a couple good friends and smoked out heavy. Our ride\'s car broke down so they were trying to leave in the middle of Watchtower. Needless to say we didn\'t.

Hard to say this was the best but rapunzel, minarets, don't drink the water, you look at the setlist, it's insane. Loved the amphitheater.

Amazing show with a great set list. The sound mix sounded not quite right though. I could barely hear the horns, and all the mids seemed a bit muddy.

Decent setlist, I kinda was hoping for more of a mix-up of songs instead of mostly Big Whiskey, but hey, they were on fire once again. Oh and very glad to hear Say Goodbye, love that song!!

Great Job by the DMB.

"Honey Honey come and dance with me!!!!!!!!!!!!"

It was great to finally hear that one after 5 concerts. Hope we helped David feel just a fraction as good as he made us feel.

Just an awesome show, great energy, nice varied set, couple teases. BT destroyed Dancing Nancies, love the UTHAD intro on Warehouse. So pumped to get a Big Eyed Fish. Really like how Squirm is evoling as well as Time Bomb. Best show I have attended, hoping Nationals Park will be just as good on Friday! Give Me Halloween, would be great on the new Watchtower Outro...for sure

Set was great, parking lot was fun, good time - however, numerous douchebags, especially behind us, drunk, spilling beer all over us and people around them - other than that, show was Perfect! Since when did dmb shows attract so many douchebags? Wasn't like this in previous years

Minarets was such a tease but I still loved it the opening run was awesome the show got a little dull in the middle then the ending ants was one of the beat ones I've seen

first DMB show! so exciting made me fall in love with DMB. Time Bomb was epic

The only reason the show doesnt get 5 stars is because Im not a fan of Dave by himself first song of the encore and I dont really like Sister. Warehouse and DDTW were amazing, the whole show melted my face! Granny and Minarets tease were a nice surprise, I think Minarets was for someone in the front row who had a sign. Ill miss em next year!

Another amazing show. After more than 50 shows (counting a few D&T shows) I've still never heard Minarets live in person. They teased it for about 2 minutes, and went into a classic Pantala>Rapunzel opener. Kinda disappointed that they didnt play the full Minarets (as you can tell by my username that is my fav song), and even more disappointed in myself that we could not go to the Charlotte show the next day when they DID play it! Oh well, I'll hopefully hear it before the tour is over. I've still got about 4 shows left! Anyway, Big Eyed Fish was great, and another great Warehouse UTTAD version! Other highlights for me were Say Goodbye, Everyday, Nancies, Cornbread and a FANTASTIC version of Ants! The encore could have been better. 2nd time this year I've seen a Time Bomb>Watchtower combo, but those are still two very excellent songs and I enjoyed it. Sister was very beautiful. Send me all the hate mail you want but I love Dave Solo songs! Great night.

teasing minerates was not cool,playing games with my heart hurts.
i think they did it because some guy in front had a sign that he wanted to hear it, so i think the band was screwing him, but they liked it so much they played it the following night and many nights to follow.

This was my 2nd show this tour, and my wife's third. This show was some of the best energy we have seen yet! The minarets tease followed by rapunzel
Opener was fantastic!! Our one reason it
Doesn't get 5 stars is that he keeps the encore the same...gotta end with something other than watchtower Dave...please :)...seeing them again in CA, can't wait!

OMGosh! So much to say about this show..besides the fact that I know Carter personally though my family and ive been to his house and all that jazz...I got to watch from the VERY FRONT Stage left, made eye contact with him, dave, stefan, rashawn, and jeff. The girl next to me was the reason they teased Minarets: during daves intro of Amos lee (who killed the opening by the way) he saw her sign, nodded, and said "maybe"-a maybe that really implied a yes! And the highlight for me, after the show, Carter found me, dapped me up (the only person he dapped up), we had a mini-reunion and I got a stick (my 3rd). I have to say it doesnt get any better. Say Goodbye did it for me, I never heard it live, but Seven, Nancies, Rapunzel and the whopping 11 count at the end of Ants Marching just really showed the versatility and on the fly coordination of the band. And being up that close, u really get to read the bands mind almost. You can see what song is coming next, you see interactions between band members, you look up and Carter is looking dead in your eye and pointing directly at you during songs and throughout the show several times! Thats how you know that youre at the best show you could ever be at in your lifetime! Good show boys!! And by the way we were the first people at and in the amphitheatre! (TRUE DIE HARD FANS) WE waited 4 hours through heat and severe storms! We held the energy down in the PIT, my girl to MY left got a pick during the show, and my girl to my right got a signed setlist by jeff and a pick from Stefan, me and my boy got sticks! This is truly the best band in the world, i dont wait outside during severe storms for anything! But this is as always well worth it.
