Let me first appreciate the Taylor reference.

Also, what a great way to kick things off. Not crazy about Break for it, but it sounds better and Break Free free and Shotgun being busted out is awesome. The band sounds tight as ever, Dave's voice sounds great.

Thanks, Danny. I really liked the the ending of Break Free.

Most Tour Opener LIBS since the infamous 2010 Hartford show. I'll take it

Actually I think there was a show since then that had 4 also. I want to say it was Vegas 2020.

Yeah looking it up now, Beach Ball, Stolen Away, SUAD, and The Riff were all liberated. Now we can get technical and say Vegas 2020 wasn't really a tour opener, but it was the first show of 2020.

The Woodlands 2018 tour opener also had 4 libs

Raleigh last year had three consecutive LIBs.

Hartford 2010 was something special. To this day, I think opening with JTR is the most unpredictable thing Dave has ever done.

It's interesting to actually see Dave suggest that and the band discuss opening with it in this video (3:58-ish): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOiXJKgYxlM

How would anybody feel about...I know it's kind of extreme...but maybe, starting with JTR?

I wonder why they had a documentary crew following them around. Part of me feels it was possibly their last tour. But it wasn't, so they used the footage in 2012.

If you all think 2010 was special then you should have been around in 03. That was the first time they ever opened a tour with some major liberations. 3 libs N1, including Last Stop, and then 5 N2, including Dreaming Tree...and they kept them coming all summer.

Man I wish, that was way before I had the chance to go to shows

Correct.

The new lighting rig that moves is a combo of that 2010 fall one and one Phish has been using lately too.

LOVE it

Was that when the C'Ville Spoon was? The current stage reminds me of seeing that video

Re: I don't know about you, but I'm feeling '22 (tour chat)

I don't want to be a downer, but is the fanbase actually excited about seeing these particular songs liberated, or is it simply the surprise/liberations themselves that are exciting?

For me, that whole mid-2000s era of new songs is underwhelming (the same era of new music that gave us the pile of poop that is Stand Up, mind you.) These aren't exactly great moments in the DMB catalog. I get that liberations are exciting, but I'd just assume see any other songs liberated than these.

I'd rather see Help Myself or PFWYG or Dreaming Tree or Kit Kat or even some of the left-behind stuff from Come Tomorrow (Come On, Come Tomorrow, Virginia, etc.) than these leftover unreleased songs from (what I feel to be) a mediocre era of creativity for the band.

Great set. Dave's voice on Shotgun continues to be concerning. He just can't get *there* anymore with his voice. I'm hoping it's just going to take a little time for his voice to warm up.

As for the tightness of Shotgun and Break Free --- Awesome. So much better than the versions in the mid 2010s. Pretty sweet.

It wasn't summer, but the Fall 2018 tour opener in Columbus had 3 liberations, a hardcore favorite song that had never opened a show before and 3 songs that had not appeared on the summer tour nor been played with the new iteration of the band.

I really like all 3 songs they played last night. And sure I'd love Dreaming Tree, Kit kat, Help Myself more, but it's nice to see these pop up again.

A friend invited me to this show last minute and I'm still kicking myself that I didn't go. Didn't feel like making the drive from Indy with work the next morning.

After 2018 and 2021, I'm NEVER skipping a DMB show in Columbus! Have no idea what it is, but they have been golden there 2 times out in the modern era.

another great call- I didn't think to look at fall tours or 2020 tbh.

I was certainly stoked on the 3 LIBS from last night, and the setlist and sound as a whole

I wish Dave would give 9/23/06 Shotgun a listen. That's the version that really propelled the popularity of the song. He doesn't need to yell max effort the entire song. He can just save it for the end.

Every year older he gets, the less he's going to be able to get those wails. He's going to have to figure out a change for it sometime. I know it's part of his signature sound and he still does it very well on Bartender, Seek Up, YMDT, DDTW.. no doubt. But sometimes a song like shotgun or samurai cop is just out of range for him now. Just accept it Dave! Move on or change the approach..

Personally I'm more excited by the setlist as a whole. Break Free and Break For It are fine, but that entire set is great from start to finish. Love You and Me earlier in the show smashed between those two monsters. Liberations or not, I just want to see solid sets like that every night.

Guessing it did by the run-time, but did Grey Street have the third verse?
