This setlist was so similar to my only other show that year... South Lake Tahoe... that I was completely and totally bored 6 songs in. That's never happened before.

Amazing end to the tour. It almost felt like they gave a grand finale show in Irvine on Roi's b-day which for me was one of the best sets I could imagine and the guys really brought it regardless!( too bad the crowd was super lame) .but as for this show, I thought it had a great balance of songs but still felt like a throwback show. Lots of great jamming. The drunken soldier/time bomb>two step encore was absolutely incredible! Probably my fav two step! Easily a 5 star show. . No idea where the 3 stars are coming from. Although in my eyes Dave and the boys can do no wrong.

A solid but predictable show, set list was typical and well played but seemed to be happy to close out the tour

First half of the show was a snooze. Band seemed unenthusiastic and uninspired. Seemed ready to get off the road and really killed it the night before. The second half from Song That Jane Likes on was incredible. Typical Situation, Crush, Jimi, Drunken Soldier, and Two Step all killer.

It was a good show but I went alone... Not as much fun as when you go with someone special :-)

I told myself when the dates came out, that it wouldn't be worth it. I felt like I was over DMB. Before this show I was skeptical considering how low in energy the band seemed last year at shoreline. Also, I hadn't been listening to any DMB at all recently.

But I caved at the last minute, switched a dinner date to a concert date and had an awesome time. The music reminded me of good times, and it was great singing along to the familiar songs again. I guess DMB has won me over again for yet another year. I may not be as religiously devoted as I used too, but it's always good to attend mass on the important days.

Brought a date out for the first time to a DMB show, and it was our first date. Really awesome lights & lasers this year and that gigantic screen in the back, AWESOME! Highlights included Proudest Monkey->Satellite, Jane, Warehouse->Typical, Snow Outside & a really solid Drunken Soldier....yet another shoreline Two Step closer, strong effort, but would have liked a little variety here. I could have done without Mercy & Reaper and considered it a solid show.

Can't give it a 5 but of the 8 shows I've been too, it's probably #5 (behind 9/5/08, 9/7/08, 8/27/12, 8/28/12). Really solid show, just lacking the real surprises of the other ones I attended. Still, awesome catching my first Warehouse, Typical, & Proudest -> Satellite.

I know I won't miss next year.

Snow outside, STJL, Warehouse, Typical, transformed the night

Bayou was a poor start...not my fav. Show started to recover with Belly Belly Nice & YMDT but then a tired Proudest into Satellite felt like self sabotage. As much as I loved Don't Fear The Reaper at the Gorge in 2011 it just didn't have the same feeling probably due to the lack of enthusiasm from the crowd and the fact the show had zero momentum at that point. Crush added some value but it was short lived followed by Mercy. Jane, Warehouse, Typical, Why I Am was a nice but short-lived run. Had no energy going in and Snow Outside killed that coming out. Jimi 4 days in a row is a bit tired. Love Grey Street but not my fav for a closer. Two song encore for the last show of the tour was a bit weak especially considering they cut 2 songs off the original setlist. Liked Two Step and the extended outro as a closer but it was far too little too late. Choppy setlist combined with a seemingly disinterested crowd that was more interested at texting or making status updates about "being at Dave" made for a less than stellar show.

The last show before my daugther was born. I remember rocking back and forth, with my eyes closed as Dave played "Mercy". I cried. I imagined holding my daughter while this song played, though I hadn't met her yet. One of my favorite DMB memories.

Couldn't see a thing and by now had had enough of Jimi Thing for sure! Actually had enough several shows earlier. Weird ending to a tour. Had fun though. I need to be closer than Upper Pavillion. My old eyes don't work well enough. Still don't like Kashmir.

Great closer to the US 2013 Summer Tour. Awesome to see Typical Situation, TSTJL and as always Two Step as a closer to the show. One of the best this summer of the shows we saw. First time at the Shoreline & west coast show. Great atmosphere & tight set up.

Of all the shows I have been to this was probably my second least favorite. In my opinion and this is just for my records, I felt it took Dave a few songs to find his rythem. Not a ton of energy from Dave either, but I did think the rest of the band was tight and had good energy. Also with the amount of great songs this band has they should be exploiting more of their catalog. This show didn't seem to be that innovative either, except for the killer Two Step. In Dave terms the conversations are starting to sound the same. They should. Put the extended solo's in other songs, dig deeper challenging themselves more and more veriety from the DMB catalog as well as more covers, what were there like 5 or 6 covers all tour? IMO there should have been at least 20 and in 46 shows and there should have been close to 200 different songs played. Hopefully we will see more from them next tour. Other bands are definately starting to pass these guys up (well at least pass Dave up)

I'm surprised to see so many weak reviews of this show...I really enjoyed it. Maybe it's because this was the only show I made it to this summer. I thought there was a great mix of new and old songs. Bayou/Belly Belly Nice was a great opener, the last few songs to close out the main set were terrific, and Two Step is always good to hear. Reaper is not the best cover choice, but I hadn't heard it before and they did a good, if straightforward, take on it. This also was my first time at Shoreline, and from a venue standpoint, it's so much better than the Irvine Amphitheatre.

Good solid set and performance. Nothing with that unexpected \"wow\" factor, except a really top notch Two Step, but a really good flow to the setlist. Extended Mercy and Typical brought the energy down a bit, but they backed those up with STJL and WIA to get people moving again. I thought it was really good song placement. I like Bayou as an opener, Squirm was great, Warehouse into Typical was a bit of a surprise and really well done. Snow Outside was incredible, and that Two Step was another level of powerful. Solid 4 star show, no low points for me, just lacking that something special to make it a 5.
