Overall a solid performance from the boys, great energy and interaction between the band and the audience. Some very strong jams on LITHOG, Crush, Jimi Thing, DDTW. I love his Neil Young covers and Write a Song was a nice surprise. A little heavy on BW and thought Squirm was a great opener, but thought Hello again would have been a better fit. I was in the pit and Dave was really having a good time. The crowd was different than what I ever seen before and think the setlist was suited better for the casual fan and not an ant, but will say again the band gave a great performance. Two step was great and we were treated to a few solos by Carter; outstanding, Boyd was a bit quiet, but maybe it was too much tennis. I don't think this band owes us anything and am disapointed in those that are very critical. If every show was epic, wouldn't epic get boring? Having had attended 14 shows over 7 years, and yes epic shows at SPAC. These shows make me appreciate them that much more and not to take them for granted. This band has been providing us with memorable live experiences for 25 years and I will never take that for granted. Thank u DMB as you have provided the soundtrack of my life.

Unfortunately I could not make this show. They did a free one because the two previous shows in Utah were cancelled. I was in Michigan battling my custody case against Harold and Carol. Jenny went with some friends and I gave my other two tickets to my missionary and his wife. The set list was not that great. Jeremy and Billie did take me to see Alice N Chains at DTE. Great show, great venue and great crowd. Jenny was not pleased with the crowd.

After two canceled shows at this venue, I was expecting a better setlist than what they actually played tonight. The setlist was almost identical to Sundays show in Denver. Nevertheless, the band showed up to play and play they did. Crush and LITHOG were the highlights and Two Step to close out the show was great. Hearing Write a Song for the first time live was a treat. Overall, it was a so-so show, even for the casual fan. Anytime I see DMB live I find it hard to complain.

OK show. Most people in section 201 in the fist 5 rows were sitting down that always makes for a shitty vibe.Pit was probably the place to be.

Good show to kick off my season with the band 2010. After previously canceled dates in 2009 and 2008. Premier of "Write a Song" -better live than recorded. Some topics of DMB songs were a tad controvercial for the audience , but I think this made Dave drive on....

Without a doubt - Two Step and Jimi Thing were the highlights of this show.

Two Step was epic! Yes, the crowd was subdued, so that made for a mellower show over-all. And the set list was a lot of new and 'greatest hits'...but still good because the guys were really tight and enjoyed themselves a lot.

The best part? We were chosen by the Warehouse for the Meet and Greet!

I felt so damn lucky...I got to meet Dave!! He's wonderful and normal and I will never forget that moment.

Expected a better show after canceling the last two shows at the venue. Still a good time. Had to take a city bus to the show and wait an hour and a half for a taxi to get back to the hotel. Only airport I've ever been to that I was unable to get a rental car onsite for an entire weekend!

Had a fun time, but not even Write A Song could save the mailed-in weak set list. The band was tight and sounded good, but not many songs for Boyd to shine. Thought Dave would bring something special to SLC, maybe a liberation or at least a JTR, Minarets, or Busted Stuff....Hell, couldn't even get a Warehouse, LIOG, Stone, #41, or BOWA.

Even though many felt the setlist was poor I thought it was a great show. Crush, LITHOG, Cornbread, Jimi Thing, and Two Step were all awesome.

Though the crowd had less and DMB-heads and more Utah locals than I was expecting, I was glad that I made the trip from Denver for this show after the Mile High Music Festival.

It's always fun to go to a DMB show...until the Bro-tastic meatheads in the crowd start to kill my buzz.

Solid performance, but the set list was not the greatest. Write a Song was a lovely surprise.

Great tribute show, excellent way to make up for a 3 year break from Utah. The set list was strong, and the crowd was into every single beat of the show!
