Danielle and Kelly got on the rail for the first time just to the left of Dave. Me and Mike were dead center second row as i sneak them down . Won the tickets bidding on Bama works auction payed 860.00 well worth it as there was no pit

Celebrated my 16th anniversary (to the day) of seeing this band for the first time! Brought a carload of canned food for the REVERB food drive, but paid our own way for the tickets this time. Some dude threw up his beer on me...I'm glad it landed on me and not my wife.

Solid show,crazy acoustic set. Nice seek up jam. Sister/Panta/Rapunzel encore didn't have the electricity the rest of the show did so it was a bit of a let down. Killer show though overall! Band was on fire it seemed.

Premium Tickets. Went with 4 people. Buddy had a health issue early in the show that caused him to be with the EMTs for the rest of the show. One of the others used his 2nd row as the ultimate first time near the stage. Great concert!

Sat 5th row dead center with Reese and Dick Ritter. Loved the acoustic set. Grey Street obviously a high point

2nd row. couldn't beat it. I was hoping to get two step or ants for the encore, but it ended with Rapunzel. Not a complete let down. We got cornbread which always makes the show at least a 4 for me.

First wing of a two-nighter for these Ants. An electric concert for a starving crowd. Dave noted the heat.

Loved the two sets. Not the set list I would have asked for but DMB's set lists are like sex, even the worst ones are amazing!

The acoustic set was incredible and the second set started off like gangbusters. As much a I'm burned out on Watchtower, seeing it mid-set was kinda cool. The show fizzled after Ditch though. Grey Street closer and PNP --> Rapunzel encore closer was weak. Both songs are fun live but don't have the energy that a closer should have.

Love having the guys playing in my backyard - second year in a row in Sweet Home Alabama. I was fortunate to have 7th row seats for my first 2 sets show - bottom line it was fantastic. I thought the acoustic set was a little too low energy and no real surprises. But the unexpected benefit of that was how that set made the full band electric performance seem that much more awesome in contrast - when they came back for the second set it was like a huge relief to see them all spread out and in normal places - lighting has never been better - tasteful use of lasers throughout Dave seems to genuinely enjoy being in Alabama - once again while here he took time to ride bikes in Oak Mountain State Park - told a funny story involving dog shit lol. Highlight for me was YMDT and Watchtower -->Ditch - seeing watchtower sandwiched between two songs was cool, instead at an end point as usual. Boyd was in great form and looked happier/ more comfortable than i've seen in years. Great night... gotta jump in the car and get over to Atlanta now!

Loved the acoustic set. Recently was great. Finally got to hear Seek Up after almost 25 shows. Great night!

The band was great! However this was one of the worst venus I have every been to. The sound system was turned down so low because of noise complaints from surrounding houses that I could barely hear him. The noise from the lawn area overpowered their songs and I had difficulty hearing them... Overall great set list Stolen

Worked this show as an usher. It's wonderful to be able to see DMB and get paid for the privilege. Itís quite a different experience not being able to fully focus on the show but still a very good one.

10th show. Maybe the best I've seen yet up through One Sweet World. After that as much as I hate to say left me a little bit disappointed. Band sounds as good as ever though!

A last minute road trip with my buddy that ended in gold. From just Dave and Tim leading the first two in the acoustic set to Watchtower and hearing Sister in the encore was pretty awesome. Was slightly confused with Panta/Rapunzel as the closer, but to my surprise it ended well. Not Number 1, but definitely in the top 5 of my shows.

38th Show....one of the best. However, I hate being one of the early shows, still working kinks out and all. Great sets on both!! Been to Pelham 2 years running...great venue too.

Started out with such promise. Felt a little let down by the end with the encore.

Solid show. I thought it was gonna be one of epic proportion to start but then when the Crash run started it went downhill. I'd love to see more AFTW songs. Regardless, the acoustic set was awesome. Love BEF > Seek Up. The venue is great and intimate too. Had a great time, now on to ATL.
