I had a blast at this show, it started a little slow, but the seek up intro was intense as hell. Rest of the show was pretty great for a Tuesday night.

Not a fan of the setlist. Obviously every DMB show is still far better than an average concert.

Not my favorite ATL show, but there have been some great ones over the years. Ants w drum solo was phenomenal. Save Me was cool.. I remember when DM released Some Devil how good I thought it would sound w DMB. Overall you just can't beat a DMB show.

Love getting railed! Had a lot of fun, finally got a stick! They could have played John Mayer covers all night long and I would still have been happy at the end of the night with a used stick in my hand!

Agreed with some of the comments about the flow of setlist, but thought the mid section of the show was great tempo. Save Me and Grace, plus the first Ants on this tour, plus 41 and Jimi were highlights.

They are very on point so far this tour... not the heat I would hope for. These new songs like Mercy and Sweet are just not what I want out of this band. Gaucho is pretty cool though. Too Much BWGGK without playing the heat off that album (LITHOG, Time Bomb, Gator Pie). But all in all, Idk if i have ever seen them so cohesive and playing off each other. Was a fun show.

Went to this show with Brannon and April. Just great to get back to seeing the band again after our trip to NYC in 2011 got cancelled by Hurricane Irene. Really digging the new songs. Got Sweet, Goucho and Mercy tonight.

Liked the first half of the show better than the second half (everything before DDTW).

Save Me w/ full band was a great highlight. First Grace is Gone!! I was surrounded by locquacious obnoxious rednecks so the opener of Sweet was not heard very well. Overall great show though!

Fun night, but not entirely satisfying. The band played well. the lights and videos were great, but all this couldn't overcome the setlist and placement of songs within the set.

up and down performance. Some rocking songs interrupted by some slow songs. Uneven performance but ending and encore were good.

Kinda got the same set as hangout, which I was at two days before. Good energy though.

Band was fantastic but the crowd and the venue suck. I was a bit disappointed in the setlist as it seems DMB has gotten into a rut with playing a lot of the same songs everytime they come back to Atlanta.

I know people complain about the setlist, but i thought the performance was amazing. Very high energy, and got my first Seek Up!

This was my 16th show and I have to say that, while as awesome as any show is, the lack of good debut's and rarer songs was a little disappointing. I'm ready for the more common Big Whiskey songs to fall out of rotation a bit

my 41 first b-day ........saw 41 on 41

Hate to say it, worst set I've seen Dave play out of 8 shows. Too slow, new stuff has potential but is still slow. Having a mostly slow set, then to do "Don't Drink The Water" with high energy to a piano solo for "Out of My Hands"?that describes it. The only "jams" they did were for 41, Jimi Thing, and Seek Up, which in my opinion are tailored for the stoner crowd. Overall, slow show, slow jams, with a few high energy songs sprinkled in..disappointed..

Great show! Seek Up was a nice surprise. Highlights we're Jimi Thing, 41, Ants, and GIG. Loved how the band was playing as a cohesive unit, and Boyd was on fire last night. Played really well. Can't wait for Charlotte

Pit seats were really full at first however we snuck to the front when a security guard went to go pull an inebriated onlooker outta the crowd. SAVE ME was incredible! As far as being the greatest show ever or the worst. I don't judge concerts like that. This was an overall GREAT show to be at and I really enjoyed it.

Not a very good show. Very uninspired set list, the band had energy it seemed like, but the set list just wasn't that good. Nice to see Ants close. Catching a #41 and Seek Up are always awesome, but overall, meh.

Interesting encore too. Need to go to WPB to get my DMB fix again.

Not my favorite show with so many unreleased and Big Whiskey songs. Where were the big 3 albums?

Second time in the pit and it was great! Crowd was having a good time with no pushing and shoving going on! Not my top DMB show (2010-11-15 was by far the best), but as always, what DMB show is ever bad? Dave and the band looked like they were having a ton of fun and Dave chatted a lot. His humor can't be beat! As for the show, Save Me was a highlight. One of my favorite songs! If you can't groove to that song, then something is not right. Plus, 3 long jam tunes (Seek Up, #41 and Jimi Thing - Double sax by Jeff!) You can't go wrong with those.

Solid and fun. Guys seemed to be enjoying their music and playing togethor. The carter scat by Mr. Matthews was a nice touch.

My 25th show, but my first in 3 years. I thought it was a great show, the crowd energy was there and it was filled with a few suprises. Not the best show I've seen, but it was without a doubt FAR from the worst...

The show had no consistent flow. Mellow and untimely songs interrupted a few really great songs in the set list.

PNP>Rapunzel...encore? More like a opener to me, but whatever.

Rocking show. The new songs are great live and the weird Eh Hee intro and surprise Ants made it pretty memorable.

Nice way to begin 2012 tour, IMO one of the most enjoyable shows I have been to.
