    Seeing it says printed vaccine card on the website. My buddy, who came from out of town was unaware and only has a photo on his phone. Anyone know how strict they’ve been about this?

    Does anyone know if tonight’s show is able to be watched anywhere besides Facebook? I don’t have a fb account and wasn’t able to make the show. I had to sell my tickets and I’m bummed. Was hoping to at least watch.

    The huge line is just for one of the three tents FYI. I'd start at the front of the venue and work backwards- worth the time

    Dave must hate Michigan or think it's a casual fan state between the duds at Clarkson and Grand Rapids which is unfortunate for the die hard fans out there. What the come tomorrow is going on tonight lol.

    Venue is great, band sounds good, but this set list is brutal.

    Giant mail it in night and that’s too bad.

    Trying not to be hyperbolic . . .

    Tonight was my 77th show and this is near the bottom. And, I entered with no expectations.

    They played well enough, but no chance to develop momentum. I hope others enjoyed it more than I did.

    Without question one of the worst set lists be ever seen. It was a sold out crowd ready to go crazy at any given moment and dave straight up blew it. Was feeling embarrassed because I convinced some newbies to attend.

    Kinda wild. UTTAD was the most played album but you wouldn’t guess it looking at the set lol. I try not to judge based on set list alone but yuck.

    Usually get a decent show in Detroit. I had very low expectations for this show.

    Yes, felt a bit mailed in. It felt like it was more of a tune up for the east coast.

    I originally had pit tix for this show, but I knew that getting to it was going to be tough for me so I sold them to another Ant a couple months back. Rough setlist after Friday, but hope he still had a blast!

    The crowd was definitely in to the popular upbeat songs and even some more. The setlist didn't help with the potential energy in the room.

    Though it was "sold out" I think attendance was lower (even people in front of us in line were given tickets because their friends didn't want to get tested before the show) also many people seemed to spend a lot of time in beer lines as they were gone a long time when they left their seats.

    We were in the front row of the stands near the Pit entrance, there was a lot talking and sitting around us. The middle to back of the PIT looked like they were generally just watching a light show and chatting with friends.

    Eh typical Michigan show, which is why I always travel to places with a better rep.

    It was weird how everytime you felt the show could lift off, it came back down crashing. Like rapunzel and warehouse and he followed those up with trash.

    I agree and to have a show on the weekend in Michigan was great. I hope they do it again soon and we can enjoy the city more

    Van Andel was in no way prepared for last night. Between the line to get in, and the drink lines (was told half of their bar staff called in)—the logistics were a mess.

    The bad part is they’ve KNOW their COVID check process was bad from previous events.. and I can’t help but to wonder if they put the cost of the COVID tests all workers needed before on them so definitely can see why people would call in.. just sucks for the fans, artist and coworkers left high and dry.

    Agree as well. We used the Ottawa entrance, there was one metal detector and one person allowing you to scan your ticket. The covid check didn't' really to be slowing that entrance with two people checking.

    The curse of the hardcore DMB fan. The boys sound incredible. That’s never the issue. After seeing a very well-put-together setlist on Friday night, hopes were high for Saturday. It just sucks to get some really great shows and some not-so-great duds. I agree with everything that was said above. You were just waiting for the run that never came. Midway through the show it turned into “oh it’s gonna be one of those shows.” But always keep it in perspective. They’re one of the greatest bands of all time and we are lucky as shit to be alive and able to go to shows.

    Shoutout to the nice couple who was there for their 99th and 60th shows. This was my 40th. Definitely bottom 5, unfortunately.

    I sold my ticket and decided not to take the trip from Minnesota. I was a little worried they were gonna play Christmas Song and I’d miss my only chance to see it. That definitely didn’t happen

    Spot on... I think the hardest thing when being critical is how much fun the band was having on stage and how good they sound. The song choice was less than stellar but they sounded great.

    My 60th show. Luckily I was in Columbus the night before so the bummer of getting this generic set wasn't crushing. I got a feeling right from the opener of where the night was headed. I decided to readjust mentally and find alternative ways to see appreciation in this show as it happened. Was honestly just happy to catch Madman's Eyes again. I'm loving that one.

    The majority of this set was Big 3 era or generally accepted as "good/fine" songs. Just so happens those were ones you see all the time at any given show. Its the other spots where it was whiffed

    Satellite
    Seek Up
    Stay or Leave
    Where Are You Going
    PNP>Rapunzel
    Warehouse
    Grace Is Gone
    What Would You Say
    Dancing Nancies
    Grey Street
    Ants

    You could even argue while we have seen our fill - Bayou, Corn Bread, and the 3 Big Whiskey radio singles are crowd pleasers that keep a crowd's energy up.

    But no, this show was not to the hardcore's delight. Not even ONE damn bone could be thrown our way. Though, from where I was, the crowd was loud as fuck and eating it up all night.

    I liked the show. #11 for me. I was up in the deck, and the crowd around me was really into the show. I had a fun time all around.

    I need a favor though. I lost my ticket. If anyone still has theirs and doesn't want it, can you mail it to me so I can use your ticket in place of mine in my scrapbook? I can pay for the postage and any extra cost that come up. Thanks.
