I really enjoyed the show. I see DMB every year in Atlanta and this show was very high on energy. You could tell that the band truly appreciated the sold out crowd. Lie in our graves, diggin a ditch, and cornbread with Warren Haynes were some of the highlights for me. Dave solo on the electric for Some Devil and Ants Marching as an encore were the perfect ending to a great show.

Played good songs at a good time. Definitely surpassed my expectations for a show at Aarons. Fun with the Parkers...free stuff...indian food in VIP...insulting everyone around us (sorry!)

The show started out great, but then it tanked out and became the Big Whiskey show. Also, the pit was way too crowded. I hate that venue anyway.

Great start and diversity in the set list. Started old, went new and mixed it up. Band was on and crowd was fun. Looking forward to WPB.

Great show. Best version of Crush that I have heard. Was hoping for a little more out of Warren.

Great variety of songs. Boyd's pieces in LIOG and Crush were unreal. He was really on his game. Carter's Say Goodby intro and Two Step solo were out of this world. Great show for the whole band.

First time I had heard Minarets and it was killer. Great to hear Crush and LIOG. Hands of God outro is fucking kickass! First time hearing Some Devil too, love it. Great energy the entire night. Out of 36 shows, One of the best shows I have seen.

Great show in an ass sucking venue.

" Ya'll make it hot here in Georgia" and to the hottie in the front row dave said "at least a guy can dream" great davespeak!

opening three song run was classic - best old school DMB run ever.

Loved Digging a Ditch and LIOG - made the show special for me , my 48th.

Time Bomb intro to Two Step was highlight - dave looked like he really was seeing jesus as he screamed those words - incredible.

ok venue - wow - Atlanta you are a world class city. What are you doing with a third world venue???

Looked like an old military base that had been abandoned and opened for one night only - huge vines growing over the building, weeds everywhere, plaster falling off, broken seats galore... what the f??? cmon atlanta you can do better. After seeing DMB in Toronto at the lovely Molson ampht., the stellar Woodlands, Burgettstown, Deer Valley etc. my brother and I were praying for the sun to go down so we could forget what a dump we were seeing the greatness of DMB in!

Also, don't make the mistake we did - parking is FREE - tons of people including us paid $20 and more to park in lots before the venue - no need ... by pass them and go to the free venue parking.

See you in Chicago DMB for my 49th and 50th!!! WRIGLEY!!!

I absolutely loved this show, but the only thing that I really did not enjoy was that Dave did not play enough of the classics. I went in with high expectations of: trippin billies, 41, proudest monkey etc. But beside that, it was an amazing show!

Wow. Mirarets opening was nuts. Granny is always a favorite. Boyd KILLED it on LIOG. Crush was the best I've ever seen it. Everybody was on top of it tonight. Overall excellent show and excellent setlist.

Amazing show! Minarets>Granny>Say Goodbye was a great treat, and loved the end of the regular set with Two Step. Was really hoping to see Cortez the Killer with Warren, but Cornbread didnt turn out as bad as I first thought. They jammed on it as usual. Overall amazing!

Pretty solid show. Minarets was awesome opener but of course no one recognized it and Say goodbye was beautiful and LITHOG was very choice and of course Two Step was off the chain

First time to this venue, standard ampitheater with a smallish lawn. Looks like the very front of the lawn is obstructed view and near the top is too steep to stand.

We had good seats...pavilion is great with short rows, good aisles and easy to move in and out. Lots of busted seats for some reason. Great sound, huge side screens and short lines at most concessions and bathrooms.

The show:

Minarets - Killer opener! Strong vocals, rare song....what a start
Granny - OK, another favorite, crowd is stoked by now
Say Goodbye does Jeff have the piccolo, yes he does!
Seven - Is it just me or does the bass get so low it vibrates your organs?
Shake Me Like a Monkey - Happy dancy song, still going strong
Lying in the Hands of God - OK, everyone else likes this song more than I do...decent with some good solos now, but not one of my faves.
Digging a Ditch - decent, slowing down now...will this setlist pick back up?
Lie in Our Graves - Booyah! Great version, happy happy joy joy.
Crush - standard 2010 version which means Crush greatness. Some serious jamming here, almost meandering like we haven't seen much so far this year. Enter Tim Reynolds, Jazz Guitarist!
Squirm - I love this live, crowds don't seem to know what to do with it though.
Corn Bread I like this song, but what a waste of having Warren Haynes guest.

Baby Blue - Wow, really? Right here in mid-set? Awesome. Crisp, Dave's vocals in 2010 are amazing.
Funny the Way It Is Good Stuff here.
Don't Drink the Water - Powerful song. I'm not sure I've ever had a hallucinogenic flashback, but I might've had one during this song.
You & Me Awww...sweet.
Two Step - Yup, I'm pretty sure that was a flashback, what is in this vodka-tonic anyhow? Timebomb lyrics mashed up during intro...I love that.
Some Devil Dave solo, I'm wondering at this point if this is gonna be a short 18 song setlist of if we'll get a 3-4 song encore
Ants Marching - Hi-hats mean this is the last song. CB solos in a great way, nice dancy typical 2010 Ants.

Overall show: 7.7 / 10. Very good show, possibly the best I've seen this year because that jam during Crush finally seemed like some non-scripted freewheeling meandering jamming that we love this band for. This crowd was more diverse, older, and pretty well behaved. They were really loud a few times and the band seemed to feed off of that, and then at times they were silent. Like wooden during Squirm for some reason, but I've seen other crowds just freeze during this great song too. This setlist reminded me of Charlotte in that it started out on fire, got normalled-up midway through, except that it ended with an encore, at least on paper, much better than Charlotte. Still wish I'd seen that show.

On to Tampa and WPB!

Pretty strong opening and great middle of the show. Got a little down after Warren was used for cornbread, but it wasn't bad. Closing of Two Step was amazing and the same for Ants in the encore. Jammed out the end amazingly. Enjoyed it immensely! Two years from now, I'll be back!

Minarets!! Great show. The band had lots of energy. Minarets, Granny, Seven, Shake Me, & Graves were highlights. DDTW & Two Step were bursting with energy and excitment. The band looked like they really enjoyed Lying in the Hands of God, Cornbread, and Two Step. Good times.

Knowing that Atlanta was one of the last shows before THE shows at WPB broke my heart. Nonetheless, songs were tight, Boyd was loose, Carter was killing it(two step), and Jeff in crush was phenomenal. Dave seriously needs to raise up an octave or to in smlam interlude. Cornbread was surprisingly good!

Best DMB show yet! I was in the pit right up front. Great mix of old classics and new tunes. Crush jam was awesome. Show featured a lot of Boyd!!!

Most ridiculous DMB show I have been to so far. We travled 4 hours to get there without any tickets in hand. Me and my brother ended up buying some tickests from a scalper, and they ended up being fake. Next thing we know we are sitting in the back of a police car looking for this guy, but we never find him. So we sat in the parking lot to listen to the show. We met a few cool dudes and ended throwing the frisbee around. When it was time for the encore we found a way in and got to see the last two songs. In the end it was a pretty good day.

Very fun show despite me sitting in the lawn. The opening run was insane: Minarets, Granny, Say Goodbye, but then it took a turn to the Whiskey.

Digging a Ditch was wonderful! Definitely a treat.

LIOG and Crush were excellent, odd spot for Baby Blue but still pretty. Crowd loved DDTW and Two Step, Carter is not human haha.

Meh on the encore, I was really hoping for something with Warren but still my first Ants Marching of the year so no complaints. A good show for sure.

Great show! Minarets opener, followed by Granny and Say Goodbye was a splendid way to start the show. Kinda slumped once the BW started coming out but those songs have really progressed since last year. Crush was the best I've ever heard! It was sick! Also, welcome back Mr. Tinsley! SO good to hear Boyd tear it up! I think I heard him more than Tim (which is always good!) Only complaint was Warren playing Cornbread...of all songs. Why couldn't they pick a better song! Digging a Ditch was super treat and Some Devil was great!
