Garbage set...huge let down from N1

Like someone said below me, I am giving this a 5 when I would probably give a 4 just to offset the idiot opinions described below. If you were \"disgusted,\" then leave your tickets for someone who wants to be there. As the guys said on the Ants podcast, this show\'s overall rating is really low for how good it was. I thought that while the set was a little predictable, it flowed really well and the energy was very high. You also cannot beat that encore. The place went nuts. It was my first time hearing Sugar Will live since 2004 and that was nice, and I really like Bismarck. Overall a great show.

whole weekend was amazing as per usual in Camden...I agree with the comment before if your disgusted with the sets they just played then you should stop going. I can\'t for the life of me figure out what you guys would need to hear in a set? Anyway awesome energy and encore was a treat #10/31.

Crowd energy was stronger than N1, at least based on where I was sitting. Show flow was great, encore was really amazing, but was a disappointed at lack of Two Step or a debut/special song.

Amazing show, started out nice had the feeling it was going to be epic. Almost got there incredible set as it kept building and building. Crush, Gravedigger & Billies / Halloween were crazy highlights from the spectacular show!

DMB on a beautiful Saturday night... What more could you ask for? After last years monsoon a 83 degree sunny evening was a welcome sight. Highlights were OSW, BEF, DDTW, Granny, Halloween. Very solid show. See ya in 2018!

After a 6 year hiatus, I am amazed at the musical development of the band, even after all these years. Jeff has grown ten-fold since 2010 and my wife and I had the best time ever... I was hoping for LIOG and Typical, but wasn't disappointing in the least. I am a little confused about how people are giving this night/song selection slack... I am going to go out on a limb and say they are trolls that didn't go to the show and are jaded. There is something wrong if you left that show with a negative attitude towards it...

Idk how people are rating this so low. I thought the energy was spectacular and greater than N1. The opening and encores were amazing. Jamming was great overall. OSW, Minarets, Jane, Granny, and Halloween were my highs. Hell, just to play the devil\'s advocate, I didn\'t mind If Only to mix it up. For my last N2 until 2018, I couldn\'t ask for much more.

Show not as great as Friday night, but encore was awesome.

Too many ups and downs this show to ever get a great flow going. After an absolutely killer performance on Friday, this one felt like a let down. Although the encore was pretty cool, the show just hadn\'t worked up to the energy needed by that point IMO. Band was playing extremely loud, but not necessarily well at points, too.

I really enjoyed this show. The bands energy was amazing, the best I\'ve seen in a while. I also stopped worrying about the setlist and just let myself enjoy the songs they played. At one point Dave said he was taking his cues from Carter because Carter is crazy. Later on he called Stefan his Superhero. I thought the show was over with Tripping Billies and then they broke out Halloween. It\'s fun to watch the different reactions to that song.

Gave it a 5 to offset the assholes giving the show a 1, otherwise I would have given it a 4. All of you who want to bitch about this show should stop going to shows and join the Beiber fan club. You sound like spoiled little trust fund kids displaced after Phish stopped touring and you are embarrassing. There is not another band that comes close to the energy and awe-inspiring talent of these guys, then keep in mind that it\'s 25 years later. I began seeing them 22 years ago and the progression is non stop and they get better each effing year. Compared to N1, their energy was much improved and it\'s always a better show when they are having fun. Besides the epic and unexpected encore, my mind was still blown during 5 or 6 songs thanks to the Carter/Stephan led thrashings that Boyd, Rashawn, Jeff and Tim doled out. Thanks for a great weekend!!

LOL from the very front to the very back! It's interesting to see the contrast from the pit to the back of the lawn. Another great show!

"I was so disgusted with the main set I left as soon as Billies started. Missing Halloween was the icing on the cake." Ditto. Sugar Will and Crush were the only highlights of the main set for me. Predictable opener and set closer. Break Free was the only new song in 2006 I missed over 3 shows that year and somehow I missed it again this year. That Die Trying > If Only > Drink > Satellite run was the nail in the coffin for me. Honestly, the best part of the show may have been no Space Between.

Lots of standards, but nothing out of left field. Kind of disappointing for a night 2 show. Night one definitely had the better setlist. Finally saw Minarets in my 54th show. Crush, Sugar Will and Jimi were good for some jamming. Three song encore was the highlight of the night.

Probably not quite as good as N1, but that could be due the fact that the biggest douche bag in Philly was behind me. Also not as many die hards for the Saturday. Met Carter and Jeff before the show.. so that was awesome!! The encore was so good. Getting back to downtown Philly was a nightmare. Overall, great weekend! Loved Philly, the venue, most people, and will come back for sure.

Nothing mind blowing about the setlist, but i thought the band had some serious energy. The horns, bass, and violin were on point. Great way to end the weekend.

Setlist was predictable at time with a few little surprises. Fans on the lawn seemed to really be digging it. Gravedigger sounded awesome in my opinion and Bob Law has some potential. Awesome night for a show. Gonna miss the boys in 2017!

A fine show to round out an amazing wkend. Jeff and Boyd got plenty of time. I was several rows back on Boyd\'s side and heard Stefan\'s bass like never before. Louder and clearer than ever. He grabbed the Fender for If Only and Dave commended him for his beautiful bass lines on Bob Law. Jeff cut loose on Jimmy Thing. I like the envelope shaper effects that Rashawn is using lately. No big setlist thrills but really fine playing on a lot of great favorites. Really powerful Why I Am, one of the best I\'ve seen, check out the vids online... Forever dancing with the Gru Grux King.

the people reviewing this show are mostly pretentious assholes. This was one of the best show I have ever been to out of my 58 shows!

Very predictable opening with OSW and closing main set with Jimi. Still had a great time even if the set list wasn\'t anything special versus rest of tour. Keep reminding myself that every show is someone\'s first show and I shouldn\'t be a selfish, jaded prick about not hearing all my personal favorites.

If you are using the word disgusted in a review of this band, perhaps it\'s time to stop going?!?! The weekend for us was AWESOME! Two great shows, great weather, awesome views and killer energy. This Camden run was excellent! Next up SPAC for two then we\'re done! 8 shows this summer. The band is on fire and plays with more energy and passion than anyone out there! Enjoy every chance you get to see them cuz this is some magical stuff! Eat, drink and be merry.....for tomorrow we die!

What a terrible show. I was so disgusted with the main set I left as soon as Billies started. Missing Halloween was the icing on the cake. Besides STJL, there was nothing that made me excited. The band just leaves too many amazing songs on the table, while they repeat the same 40 songs each tour.

Solid, unspectacular set following the amazing rooftop tailgate that got moved to Lot 5. Great job done by everyone there and a HUGE thanks!! Was hoping for something special after a fantastic N1 but it was a pretty standard set. Enjoyable but no real wow moments. Opening run of OSW through Crush was strong and the encore was fantastic.

A good number of "fun" tunes played. Dragged a bit in the middle, but the band always seems to do that. All-in-all, a very fun afternoon and evening!

My 41st DMB show and a monumental one at that! Great set list and the encore is up there with the best of them! And i was in the pit just feet away from the band! Definitely one of the best nights of my life!!
