ehh... it's still a power slot. You expect them to close the set with a great (and classic) song..... not Stand Up.

    Some hilarious overreactions in here. Not going to another show if Stand Up is played? We deserve a refund if Stand Up closes?

    Agreed. Just pointing out more that acting like its the worst thing in the world this song is being played is ridiculous.

    Re: Anyone else think these setlists are weak

    I dont think the setlists are bad. I think they could be wayyyyyy better. The liberations choices have been up and down. What you are and Hello Again are great liberations, Bayou, steady as we go, not so much. I dont want the Stand Up closer to become a thing. But I have to hand it to them, they jammed it kinda cool. It could be worse imo

    Stand Up SUCKSSSSS lets just say that.
    The thing with DMB is they get in a spot and stay there, the people saying the sets are good now will be saying how they are the same old ones over and over come another month.
    DMB never really has mixed it up and kept it fresh all summer long.
    The best part is SC hasn't been played every show

    The set lists have been fine. Not Earth-shattering but still solid sets with some really good songs being played. I'll take that.

    I mean we all can admit Stand Up is nobodyís favorite, but give credit where credit is due, that jam is pretty cool. Even lesser songs can do good things and be a highlight from time to time. Iím sorry seeing the song title pop up on a computer screen will kill oneís cred for being at that show once they return to forum home base.

    The sets are fine, especially this early and including a week day show.

    Saturday's show was great, and featured a ton of classics: https://twitter.com/DMBnewsnet/statu...24303077445632

    5.18 is such an off the wall set. it's refreshing to see them mix it up even if they're going back to '05.

    Theyíve been solid. Whether the diversity continues remains to be seen. History tells us no.

    I never thought I'd say it, but I really hope to get Stand Up at Riverbend. They're tearing it up. Buddy and Rashawn have made that song theirs.

    Not at all. I had a great time at the Dallas and Woodlands shows.

    The Dallas show is the first DMB show I've ever rated (out of all the shows I've attended) without using any 0's or -1's.

    I've enjoyed the setlists. I'll take Stand Up, Steady, etc over songs I've seen played on every tour since 2007.

    Never understood jimi thing hate outside of Sexy MF. Its a classic dmb song, hating it to me is like hating Billies.

    Its just overplayed. Far better song than the likes of Stolen away, American Baby, ODH, WTWE, Dive In, LITHOG & Squirm.



    Thats not to say I dislike those songs, but Jimi is a classic.

    I mean if Jimi was just 6 minutes I bet itíd be much better received. But letís not act like there isnít a boring 10 minute jam that happens
