jtr would have been great if i could hear it. bad gen ad. section and all i could hear was the crowd singing the chorus...some of our dmbheads do have lovely voices though. bef into bartenter was sssoooo neat. to killer tunes matched up like that's i perfect. jimi thing was cool. first time i heard it. #41 was excelent as always. i liked seeing the lazers over head from hershey they made it soo special. what you are was rockin. that's a powerful tune. ftt was neat. the encore wasn't amazing..i heard it before

my first show, it was ok...i had a great time but you could hardly hear and the crowd was awful. Couldn't see a thing and security sucked. i was warned about seeing dmb at hershey but i had to go anyways. this show started my addiction though.

u know i was sick all day long, felt like shit, but still drove 4 hours to see the band just because i knew it would make feel better just to hear them play, and it did. nothing like a good ol' dose of dmbeveryminute for a couple hours to make u feel better. it was another awesome show.

This show was okay. I liked the guest on Jimi Thing, and I liked BEF into Bartender. Too much everyday stuff. And although Sleep to Dream Her ranks as my least favorite dmb song of all time, I'm glad I got to hear it live once. I was also at this show by myself, so make of that what yo will.

Whoa! This was a duzy. I just started working for E-rac, and I lied to get out of work early to go. Drove down, met up with Heintz, Shep, and their friends. Got it in and drove over to the park to meet up with Ben. Met up with JD, Jakie, and Bress and Morris who didn't get in the show with the fake tix they scalped!!! Waited for Ben to get there with the tix till 745, I was buggin b/c we had 5th row, my best ones yet!!! Got in and it was wonderful. Right in front of Boyd, and he was in my face at how I was jammin off of him. Show was Sick, got good pics, and highlights were the Ants closer. Went back to the campin lot, huffed and chilled before going home. Lied again to get out of erac for work only 2 months into the job, hahahahahaha.

I really enjoyed this show, following lily white gave me an interesting advantage to know the tunes. JTR was a sure sign of a great show and that it was.

pretty good show. watchtower and crush really got fans going, with a sweet ants to end it.

User: DMBFn101
Review:
The Hershey concert was great, aside from a few too many Everyday songs. Watchtower was excellent and everyone was on their feet. I found Jimi Thing, #41, and Crush my favorites of the night. The crowd was totally into it on #41 and Crush was beautifully done also. Sleep to Dream Her was the worst song by far, almost everyone was sitting (who had seats), followed by I Did It, probably. It was a great show, not one to be missed!

Looking back, this wasn't a bad show, but all the repeats from previous shows may have played a role in this not being memorable. I'll mark it 4 based on the set.

User: don1214

Very good show. The setlist was very solid and I always love an "Ants" encore. "So Right" is actually very good live and the band even jammed it out a little. I absolutely love the sound of the 12-string on "JTR"- what a great song.

Never been a big fan of shows at Hershey, mainly because the crowd energy never really seems there. Well, this show was different. Crowd was crazy, the band sounded awesome, the setlist was very good (heavy on Everyday tracks since it had just been released), but even heard So Right.. which seems to be a rarity nowadays.

User: IUPBone
Review:
Incredible show! Great Setlist. I was so so so so happy to hear JTR, especially as the first song. However, i swear I was sitting in the section of people that won tickets from a radio station because they didn't know any non-album songs.

User: jamn2dmb41
Review:
Not my favorite show, but still altogether great. Had 12th row floor seats, so the sound was good for me, though i hear peops up the stands didn't have it so well. opened with JTR... nice :) Too bad it took 2 1/2 hours to get to our hotel 15 miles away! But, a great night... great tailgaiting and great show by my boys.

I walked in late to JTR...still have yet to see my favorite song..I AM PISSED TO THIS DAY

User: JTRDMB41
Review:
This was my first time to Hershey Stadium and I quickly learned that the sound is terrible unless you are on the floor. Other than that I had great time. JTR was great as an opener, loved hearing my fav tune again, #41, BEF-> Bartender was awesome as usual. Watchtower was tight nd completely rocked. Security was tight but the show was great, hopefully Ill have floor next year.

One of the better shows I've seen...Watchtower & Crush back-to-back, Jimi Thing & 41 back-to back, a ton of great jams.

Had such a great time at this show. It was my third anniversary, and we could see the tour buses from where we were sitting. We were watching the band members kind of walking around and spotted dave. We were so excited and waved, and even more excited when he stopped and waved back. Then this woman in front of me says who are we waving at, why is everyone freaking out...I wanted to smack her! Haha, not really a review about the show, just a personal memory!

This was show number 3 and I went with my girlfriend at the time Kristin and my best friend Thad. We had a blast. Heard a lot of stuff off Lillywhite sessions. Great JTR opener. Really wish they would have put that on Busted Stuff. Insane Bartender. thats not just a song but an experience live. Encore with dave soloing willie nelson with Aint it funny (how time slips away) then stay for a closer. Unbelievable.

First Dave show I had been to. It was right when Everyday and the songs from the Lillywhite Sessions were out. So the songs were bascically all from those two albums. Watchtower was great, and ending with Ants was definately the best for me for my first show!

User: mobymoby
Review:
Honestly, probably the least inspiring show I've been to. Lots of material not released, but the sound was bad (couldn't hear Dave!), view was bad from the GA section. Super crowded even way way away. Wouldn't go to Hershey again for a show.

first show. space between was special under the full moon and laser light show. aint it funny!!! great song. ants, crush were two i wanted to hear going in and got them.

User: PiggyLovesErin
Review:
Great show, especially being my first. The set list was nothing less than amazing. fan favs of #41(Everyday outro), AATW, Crush and Ants were all good renditions. Especially liked bartender, stay and Aint it funny. During Space Between the Hershey Laser show lit the sky above perfectly and danced for dave with a full moon behind us. The night was amazing, the show was amazing and will look forward to many more nights with Dave and the Boys

at the time, it was good, but now i look back and i am not digging all the everyday material he played here. the encore of the willie nelson song makes the entire show worth it!

Worked this show as visiting security in the pit. We got that as a blessing from Mel Black DMB"s official tour security. I could have slapped Dave high five I was that close. The house security was put out in the stadium. sucks for them
