A great second night, I felt was almost as good as night one which is saying something. Incredible setlist yet again, third excellent Florida set. Strange to be sat eight at the back coming from Europe, I get rail every time there. Don't normally like two step (call me names, go on!), but going into Halloween was genius.

Show didn\'t really take off until Sugar Will (9 songs in). Too many repeats from the Tampa show. Disappointed to see Oh cut from the Encore. Still a great time w/ a great band, just would like them to treat all 3 FL shows w/ fewer repeats.

Great weekend in WPB. Just wish the new songs were stronger. Ending on N2 was great with a fun 3 song ending. Ants was great especially with Boyd going off. You could see Dave wave off Carter at the end to let Boyd keeping going and boy did he keep going.

Too many cupcakes early in the show but wow what an ending! No complaints with a Best, Typical, Ants run. Two Step > Halloween speaks for itself.

After seeing n1 set list and seeing minarets and last stop I came with low expectations but this set list was very strong with lots of old faves, an ok sugar will and just a couple of speed bumps...solid show and very good encore....Dave destroyed his voice on Halloween; Carter is beyond incredible

This was my 21st DMB show and I still consider myself an amateur compared to most here but personally my favorite set list of any show I've ever been to. Guess I picked the right show to spend an arm and a leg for third row center. Can't wait til 2018.

The beginning of the show started feeling like deja vu, but was solid. This second half of the show was out of this world. RAab was hanging in our section and brought us a setlist and drumsticks. Will remember this show forever!

Really strong show! Gotta give it a 5. Up there with some of the best I\'ve seen. One of my favorites of the 2016 tour.

A bit disappointed I\'ve seen 3 of the 4 Squirm openers this tour. Loved getting Pig, Crush, Sugar Will, Dancing Nancies(would have taken LIOG instead but Tampa screwed us), & Ditch midset. The BOWA,Typical,Ants, Two Step, Halloween run put this one over the top for me. Great way to end my summer.

This reminded me a lot of N2 from last year: phenomenally well-played show with a great crowd, where the encore and a few well-placed rarities (Sugar Will, BOWA, Typical) saved it for me from being a fun, but wholly unimaginative setlist, designed largely to please the casual fans that tend to come to the Saturday show. Thanks to the band for a great weekend, to the weather for being wonderful the entire time for the first time in I don\'t know how long, and to my friends, Todd and Shane, for two great tailgates and a lot of fun.

I can't quite give this a 5 because there was a slow center where I found myself sitting down a bunch. The Pig, Crash, Crush run gave me the goose bumps but then a slow down that had me sitting in my seat. But from Dancing Nancies to Halloween was what makes me love this band. The ending of Ants is one of my 3 all time Dave moments and that is surprising coming from a song I've seen a ton. But the energy it delivered gave me chills up my spine. The encore is the dream encore. The thoughts I had as I was walking to my car was if we had the best of yesterday and today on one setlist, it would be an epic all-time show of legend. One can dream.

One of, if not the BEST Ants I\'ve ever seek. Carter was on fire all night long. WAAAAAAY better than N1 with more jams and more band energy.

After nearly 80 DMB shows - this one with 6 of my 25+ yrs best friends who flew in from 5 different states - I've come to the conclusion that Dave had it right along in BOTW - "Turns out not where, but who your with that really matters." While Saturday felt much cooler than Friday night, it was still Africa hot, but that just didn't seem to matter. The band could have easily phoned it in with all that heat, but they delivered another powerful set. One of the best I've seen in quite a while. Add to that some great folks around us up in Section 6 - and we had the recipe for a great time. For me personally, I can't overstate the importance of good crowd karma. On Friday night we had some people in our row who were clearly trying to jam 4 people into 2 seats. I get it. I've been there before, but for the love of God, please stack yourselves and grind it out vs. trying to take over our section every time we leave to get a beer or take a leak. The last thing I want to do when I come running back is engage in a conversation asking you to move down, yet again. "So now I'm the asshole, huh?" Not cool and not so fun. My annual pilgrimage to DMB is, as my wife likes to say "My Superbowl", so if you big foot on my buzz, well, that's just not cool. As for the set, while I don't love You and Me, it was a hell of a 7 song run to finish out the show. And great tempo throughout the entire show. The highs are only high if you sometimes throw in something slow - need the opposing forces of accentuate things - e.g. Digging A Ditch, WAYG. Call me crazy but I also don't love Halloween, but I was glad for those who love it and it was nice to know that the band still recognizes WPB as a special two night destination.

I'm super conservative with my five-stars but this would definetely be a solid 4.75. Lack of rarities was offset by a really solid overall set with great, solid favorites. Pig, Granny, DDTW, Gravedigger, Nancies, BOWA, Typical and Ants to close followed by an explosive Two-Step into Halloween for good measure. FANTASTIC Saturday in West Palm.
