This was my first DMB show since 1999. It was a great show for a old "New" fan. I loved Don't Drink the Water because of the great memories I have associated with that song. I was happy to hear "If Only" since it is a song my bf introduced me to. I'm looking forward to seeing more dates of the summer tour.

One of the best shows I've been to. Would be a 5-star show if it hadn't ended with Shake Me Like A Monkey.

Amazing #30 show for me! Epic acoustic set with PFWYG personal highlight. Great 2nd set with Warehouse personal highlight (crazy light show)! Ants hating just need to stop going to shows.. It's getting ludicrous with some of the snobby comments.

Acoustic set was a treat. Never a down point. PFWYG and IBYU were the highlights. Two step, billies, and stay brought the energy, and the crown really responded. The electric set started out with a bang, with Granny opening. Highlights were Granny, Warehouse, DIDO, and Say Goodbye. Only disappointment of the night was the Shake Me Like a Monkey encore. Seemed to leave a bad taste in everyones mouth, but the show as a whole was the best in Atlanta in years.

Went with Reese and Dick Ritter. Saw a bunch of people we knew at the show. Great acoustic set with highlight including PFWYG and my 2nd I'll Back You Up. 2nd night of a Grey Street closer. Awesome

2 sets was interesting, it was great to hear more older songs on both sets. By the end Grey Street felt rushed and I was surprised to hear SMLAM as encore closer.

First show for me in 4 years and it was ok. My intense love affair w/the band ended about 10 years ago but every so often I like to check in and see what they're up to but it's been hard for me since Leroi's passing. I know I shouldn't compare the band today w/the band I used to go see 10-15 years ago but it's hard not to. I'm sure I'll catch them again someday but it might be another 4 years before I do.

Love the new format. Acoustic set sound like the good old DMB (Less Tim on the Electric) while the second set rocks!

The show was epic. Until it ended with Shake Me Like a Monkey. Just don't feel that it is worthy of the encore placement in the setlist

As my 9th Dave show I was blown away at the setlist. Perfect from the first note. Encore was short but still, got to hear Granny and I'll Back You Up. 5/5 definitely.

First time seeing acoustic and was greatly impressed, would have been happy after that set alone and then the electric set to the show to another level! Great sound, great energy, great weather and the opening run and closing run of the set was high energy, fast paced, masterful playing of some of their most energetic songs, they are playing really well this summer! The only slow part was the middle, satellite if only, but I love both of those as well. One downer, the encore started awesome and finished too soon! Seems like all the shows are ending early this year, one song, no jam, low energy in the encore-not a fan, but didn't take away from how good the rest of the show was, cant wait for Deer Creek!

Acoustic set was out of this world! Couldnt have asked for anything better. Granny opener was fantastic, and the rest of the set was good too. Surprisingly that Jimi Thing was really good. Worst encore Ive seen in 13 shows but the rest of the show was awesome

my 63rd show and still going strong... Pay for what you get! I'll back you up! great night and wonderful weekend run of Alabama and Atlanta. PS- Atlanta badly needs a new amphitheater -Lakewood is a dump - completely worn out and can't handle a sold out DMB crowd. Bathroom scene was like something from the Walking Dead.

23 shows and probably the best set list ever seen overall. Much of the 100 level and almost all pit believed there was another song coming after they walked off after smlam. Disappointed in that closer but otherwise had a huge number of highlights overall. PFWYG WWYS Granny and Drive n drive out were great along with say goodbye while I\'ll bak u up and needle n the damage done were extraordinarily special. Crowd was pretty good. Band was definitely into it. Really great show overall

My favorite of the 4 shows I've seen....the setlist was diverse and balanced. The acoustic set was flawless and full of nice surprises. Really enjoyed hearing Dave again. I think his voice is in great shape for now. First time for me to hear a lot of songs like DIDO, Squirm, PFWYG and Stolen Away. No other opener really makes these shows special.

Acoustic set and first half of the set was great. Shake Me as an encore (like Dallas last year) was questionable.

Energy, pure energy. The crowd was awesome from start to finish, and the setlist was pretty much perfect for my taste until THE very last song of the encore. If they had ended with Halloween, Ants, or even Watchtower this show would have been an infinity/10. Awesome show, good times, thanks Dave!

DMB brought the noise back to lakewood. It was a treat to see a Dave and Tim acoustic set with some heavy hitting tracks. Granny opening in the second set a long with a vicious Say Goodbye really made it a nice evening. The crowd was into it from start to finish and I scored a sweet poster. Solid night!

Loved the show and the new 2 set idea. Dave always rocks in Atlanta and I always enjoy his shows here. I enjoyed the acoustic set more than the whole band but that was because of the song selection. DMB never lets you down on a show that\'s for sure.

You know, the show seemed to turn at the DDTW point and revert back to a standard "Let's just finish this one out" type of show, but I couldn't have been happier up to that point. I love that acoustic set and the PFWYG was awesome, Billies acoustic is fantastic and I am one of the fans that loves Stay, and acoustically I was wowed! That was also my first Proudest Monkey -> satellite and it's my 14th show, so I was loving every minute of that one! Granny to open the second set was great as well. A lot of greats, though they finished 15 minutes short, they coulda squeezed Ants in after SMLAM and it would've brought the entire house down.

Acoustic set was good, and gave me high hopes they were going to give us a great electric set. Unfortunately the electric set was lackluster, with some odd song placements and not the best playing. The Goodbye to DDTW was good, but everything else was standard to mediocre.

This show was so great. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because ending on "Shake me" seemed like there was more left on the table (Stay, Ants, something...) 8 Songs as the "Opener" and another 15 in the full set. So awesome.

This one was with Ashley Acornley. Some guy threw up in the lawn and it splashed us. Amanda said we couldn\'t stay with her. Pretty sure This was when we went ot vortex with george and then they went home and we stayed in the aloft. Can\'t remember exactly, but maybe we went to a braves game and won some tix to the aquarium. Prob went to the aquarium the next time we were in town.

UNREAL Opening set. I've been waiting for I'll Back You Up a LONG time. (PFWYG is just ICING!) Fantastic main set lost a bit of steam at the end, mostly due to the somewhat... eh.. closer and the fact they had 12 min to put another song out and save it but decided to be done. Not a complaint, the crowd was just a little surprised. All that said, made a six hour drive and would do it again any day for a show like this! Awesome!

Lots and lots of old school tunes! Absolutely spectacular vibe. Great prelude for SPAC! With a better encore this could\'ve been Live Trax worthy, but even Shake Meh won't take the 5th star from this show for me.

Had an incredible time at this show! It was my 19th show and also my birthday! The acoustic set was perfect. IBYU and PFWYG were amazing. The Granny opener was a nice treat. Loved the reworked DIDO. Even Jimi Thing was super fun tonight. However, did not like Shake Me as a closer. They couldn\'t gone into a Halloween and ended that show so much better. Regardless, great night with the band.
