This one was a bit rough and although the band once again played their hearts out it just did not seem to carry any momentum from N1. Many very familiar songs that have been played consistently this tour and even had three repeats from N1; something I have never experienced. There were certainly some great highlights like Captain, Hello Again, Watchtower and LLD, but after that it was somewhat uneventful and underwhelming, the encore was pretty disappointing and felt to me like the band was ready to call it a night. It is the first time I can recall hearing Dave comment on how \"silent\" the crowd was during the encore break. It was my hope that with the reputation of this venue for a two night stand right before the break it would have been better, but that was not the case. It seems to me that they just don\'t seem to bring a two night stand like they used to. Great to Mark, Dan, Sean in the lawn and the venue has some of the best sight lines for lawn. Hoping.....well just hoping for CO shows. Be well.

CT has 14 tracks. 2 songs (each under 2 minutes) have yet to be played live at a show. Of the 12 other songs, we got 13 plays over the 2 days! Sure there were small nuggets of appreciation and surprise, i.e. “fish-tender”, Typical and Hunger N1, and Captain, LLD, and a midset Watchtower N2, but it never felt close to the quality shows that brought me down to experience that hot and moist South Florida summer in years prior. IMHO there was more than a violin missing from last nights show.

An awesome set list off set by a less than awesome crowd. Even Dave chastised us for being so quite during encore. Maybe the weather during the early part of the afternoon had something to do with it - but we had plenty of time to dry off after the rain. Highlight was Captain (expected it in Tampa after they sound checked it on Wednesday) but definitely worth the wait. Hopefully next year we can get a better crowd that appreciates this band, instead of jabbering during the songs, checking FB, etc.

In Florida for Luke's Select 30 with Mark. Had to make the 2 hour trip for the show with Mark once Luke had a place to hang. Great times seeing a new venue!! West Palm Beach was rocking!

Last minute decision got me lawn tickets alone. Was on vacation and decided why not go. Alone but met some great people. Finally got warehouse! Just a high energy show with a good mix of popular songs and new/rarely played songs. Best show ive seen in 30

Great venue. Great sound. The band showed up well enough although didn\\\\\\\'t seem to build much more eneegy from previous night This would be a solid 4 if it was a single show. But it was a second night show at a proven venue. Could have been a 5 if not for Dave\\\\\\\'s sometimes mysterious decisions. A couple missed opportunities (e.g. repeat of Can\\\\\\\'t Stop from night 1), no debuts and an absolutely lousy encore were significant shortcomings. Great first part of show thru Watchtower. Actually think night 1 was equal of not better overall based on expectations.

Great setlist, they played so many good old songs. Sledghammer is always a great cover and having watchtower come before the encore was amazing. Very pleased. SO much better than the previous night.

Sledgehammer is one of my favorite covers, and I got #41 on my 41st show, so tonight was special and had a lot of high points. But that said, it just didn't quite reach the level of epic that I've experienced in past WPB shows. With THAT said, you can tell the boys are having a LOT more fun up there this year, I miss the violin but Buddy Strong is a great addition.
