Set was amazing as played LIOG. Also, Dave caught my grateful dead jersey and took it with him. Also, Dave signed drumhead

anyone complaining about this show/set list should really ask themselves why and if they even like the band anymore

Fantastic show! 3rd of the year for me and though I hit some repeats, found the overall flow and setlist to be amazing. Warren lit up smooth rider which is a song I've always loved- was pretty badass. Loved hearing Down By the River as well. Two step in the acoustic was a great surprise. Loved hearing Raven and the YMDT closer works well for me. I'm neutral on the ladies (I can take them or leave them), but they seemed to be less of a noticeable presence than in the past. Thought Boyd was totally on his game and Tim wrecked with some killer shreds throughout the night. I didn't get to go to night 2 because I had lawn and it was raining, but this show was more than satisfying enough.

This was a great night. Love the brief "take me to the river" and the extended awesome "down by the river" considering the location. Chalk up the woefully short encore to an extremely long main set.

Worse set ever. Seriously 45 mins of Jimi Thing, Smooth Rider and Down by the River. I pray Walrus Haynes isn\'t guesting this year again in Camden.

very nice show good flow a couple of liberations and overall a good set. One song encore was the only negative. Down by the River was epic.

The acoustic set was great but the the second set was just too mellow. Lovely Ladies and Warren Haynes rescued the show some. Slow flow.

Highlights for me were Raven, Minarets, an awesome lie in our graves, down by the river, and (due to warren and that ending jam) smooth rider... no lovely ladies would have been nice, but they weren't terribly present

Some news songs I hadn't searched out before the concert (Virginia in the Rain being one of them!). Lovely Ladies showed up for a few songs, take that as you may but they were a welcome sight on my part. Warren Hayes and Matt Cappy also showed up. Awesome rendition of Down by the River. Stayed in the pit for the acoustic set (which was pretty awesome!) and then lawn for the rest of the night, just taking it all in. Some rain on the lawn towards the end of the concert. Only one song for the encore - which was weird since it was not the typical closer. Two Step played during the acoustic, so maybe they didn't know what to do? The show ended late, so maybe that was part of the decision?

Some strong points (Minarets, LIOG, Granny) but overall too slow for me. And not a fan of the one song encore trend.

More like a 3.75. LiOG and Down by the River were awesome. Lot of new songs. Too many classics. Need a more balanced setlist.

Great show! Great new songs, sick down by the river and smooth rider. Beautiful night. Lovely ladies, Warren Hynes, and Matt Cappy. Crazy.

Acoustic set was just okay. Had seen all songs before except Water Into Wine. Main set was great except VA in the Rain. I am lukewarm on the ladies overall but thought they were used well this night. Both songs with Warren were incredible. Not wild that they repeated Jimi > Granny from last year, but what can you do? Would have loved another song in the encore, but understand that curfew had arrived.

Typical 2015 show. They sounded great, and then comes the LL and another wasted opportunity with Warren. Down by the River was solid though I will admit.

Went to show with Raven, Woody, and Woody's girlfriend Madison. Good show. Made passes to sneak into the lounge. Was easy to get there via patco, and took the ferry home. Met wok and Ali for drinks before the concert to celebrate their engagement.

I want the Lovely Ladies to die. Don't really care what the rest of you think of that comment. They are destroying people's lives.

Acoustic set was better than expected and electric opened strong but seemed to mellow out toward the end. Smooth rider and Down by the river were definitely highlights. Overall a good time

They lit it up. The band was on fire. Anyone who hates on this show based on set list is a fucking moron. I\'ve been to a lot of shows and have seen some unreal performances, but Smooth Rider was easily one of the best single song performances I have ever seen. It would never have been a song I would have chosen to see, but they completely annihilated it. It left my crew all speechless because who would\'ve thought back to back songs with the ladies would be so amazing. The band was super high energy and absolutely slayed. There were no hiccups or fuck ups and the acoustic set was fire. They came to play.

All of the amazing shit that happened during the early part of the show was completely ruined by the surprising and horrific return of The Lovely Ladies. Almost collapsed in honor when Dave introduced them instead of Warren Haynes.

OUTSTANDING all around... seriously, what a set list. Good jams, good variety...and the band was well rested and ready to play. Nothing bad to say about this one... very solid, very fun...

First set scared with me with a TMTT opener, but it soared after that all the way through to set close. Minarets opener was awesome. I am one of the SMALL minority of Ants that aren't driven into a blood rage by the appearance of the LL's. I get why people (especially those who have gone to many shows over the years) don't enjoy them. There is definitely a dip in setlist variety when they arrive. That said, this show, they didn't stay too long, and I liked them as they were utilized. Say what you want, they have beautiful voices. Whether they "belong" is a matter of opinion. Not the best show I've seen, but a great night for me.

Closest I have ever been without being in pit. The setlist was OK. Big Eyed Fish, Bartender and Raven were the highlights. The one song encore was pretty brutal and tough to swallow.

I agree with some of the other negative comments some individuals posted. After eight shows without them, why in the hell did the band feel the need to bring the Ladies back? They couldn't even play Cortez because the bitches could not sing that song with Warren. I honestly couldn't even enjoy all of the songs with Warren because just seeing Ladies on the left side of the stage was fucking me up. The acoustic set was very good, and the opening three songs of the electric were fantastic. It was some of the best soloing I have ever heard Tim play on LIOG (any of you morons who think Warren is a better guitarist than Tim, do not actually know how to play the guitar). But, all of those good memories were erased as soon as the Ladies were introduced. When I think back at this weekend, the surprising return of the bitches will be the first thing that enters my brain. It sucks!

Hated the Take me to Tomorrow opener. Show didn't kick of until One Sweet World for me. The rest of the acoustic set was fantastic but that Minarets electric opener was one of the highlights for me. Than it was pretty great up until Warren Haynes left (Down by the River was the best part of the night for me). Be yourself was even worse in person than I thought it could be. From that point on the show was miserable, except for Granny. The You Might Die Trying closer was pretty mediocre as well.

Solid show; both sets were a bit inconsistent, but included many solid performances. Butterfly, Bartender, Raven, 41, LIOG all were very enjoyable. Not sure why the band used Smooth Rider to feature Warren, but he and Tim had great solos. The new songs didn't jump out at me as awesome like the '04 or '06 songs, but perhaps they'll evolve and grow on the fan base. A fun night no matter what. G'night y'all

I don't usually write reviews, but had to this time because this was my 59th and I think as close to perfection in a show that I have seen. Certainly ranks up there with the Atlantic City Sunday Caravan, and Dave and Tim at Appalachian State. The acoustic set was on fire, energy was superb, Minaret's opener for the electric, and Warren Haynes (!) was killer on Down By The River and Smooth Rider. Just pure bliss the whole evening
