Strong set list for free web streamed show. Buddy starting to show his stuff not only on keys but also on vocals. Hopefully he is given a chance to allow greater vocals contribution to the band. Fairly high energy and show flow throughout the show. Ballsy move playing LIOG for 2nd time without BT. Tim, Buddy, and the horns though can't really cover for that missing violin which is so much a part of not only LIOG but the bands overall sound. Sure bands can continue to evolve and move in different directions, however, the violin is as much a part of this bands sound as the sax, and its the sound (and the party) to keeps people coming back. I hope the band finds a regular violinist at some point down the road...soon.

2nd day in Philly with our friends. Checked out the Liberty Bell, Eastern State Penitentiary, Independence Hall, and Reading Terminal Market. Then dropped-off my wife and our friends\' daughter at our Airbnb, and the 3 of us took the train to Camden. Great aisle seats again (this time in 104), and the crowd was more energetic than N1! Highlights for me were Samurai Cop, #41, and Digging a Ditch.

Went solo. Met a couple from Seattle. After I called ďCanít StopĒ I convinced them I was a crew member. Also called Idea of You and Why I Am. They believed me 100% and asked if they could meet the band. Girl put her number in my phone under ďAmy MorganĒ.

Excellent show! Really loved hearing Come on Come on live.... maybe my favorite song on the new album. Also loved the ending of the set with Why I Am (which was particularly strong in that spot), BOWA, and Ants which I wasn't sure how I'd like without Boyd but I really loved it! Only reason not a 5 is for repeats and that I really would have loved to hear Two Step or a little something special...perhaps I just got my hopes up too much due to the live stream!

Dave mentioned several times how happy he was and it showed. Great Crush, #41, Lie In Our Graves, Ants. Stand Up was fun. Could have done without the repeats from night 1 and I would have liked even one non-Come Tomorrow song I hadn't seen over the two nights, but this was probably the best DMB show I've seen in some time.

Dave and the band were awesome. Buddy is a great addition to the band. Ants was the best Ants I've ever heard. Crowd was very uptight though. Never have I ever been in such a snobby pit in my life.

Pretty decent show first row behind the pit. Was nice to get my \\\\\\\"first ever \\\\\\\"Steady...\\\\\\\" and the E1 of \\\\\\\"Digging a Ditch\\\\\\\" is the kind of nice surprise that some of these setlists are needing IMO. Kind of surprised to hear Come On Come On/Cop repeated with Virginia being cut the night before and it might be nice to hear another song off BTCS other than DDTW/Crush/Rapunzel/Stay... All that said, I left this one pretty happy with what I heard.

This show was a triumph for this Band and the fans. On the night before I felt a little odd seeing the old songs in the new configuration; and to say the least I will always be a huge fan of all the original band members. But tonight showed why Dave is still among the greatest band leaders, writers, and frontmen of the modern era; he was feeling good, he's got a whole bunch of nice new tunes that work well and make people who hear them feel good too. The band is gelling; overall this was the exhilarating experience that just about made you stop thinking about who wasn't there, and which definitely suggested that there may be a bright future in store for fans open to the next era of the band. My 51st show overall, my 8th at the venue, and this one adds to the list of standout performances in Camden. The sound and the entire scene at the venue were just really nice.

Great seats, good group around us, danced, pav w Nat. Skipped tailgate, ferried over, annoyed at parking but once on ferry, even with crowd, was fantastic. Digging a Ditch

Long set was a plus/minus with too many lulls and some energy draining inclusions. Still canít stand Idea of You; itís a weak song. Digging a Ditch opened a weak encore.

I streamed this show and thought it was a good show even though it had alot of repeat songs thoughout the 2018 tour. I enjoyed how the show was chill and the song selection had a nice flow to them. Digging a Ditch was a nice unexpected 1st encore. I didn\'t mind PNP into Repunzel considering how many times it\'s been played already, but I feel it fit in nice with song selection tonigjt. I wish Dmb would stream more live shows always enjoy watching it at home with friends like football on a Sunday.
