this was my first show so i cant really compair it to anything else but it was really good, but they could have played a better closing song

Great show until the encore...sucked! The Space Between and I did it for closing...yuck!

worst DMB show I've been to

Not my favorite show. Would rather see DMB outdoors.

User: BigEyedFish810
Review:
Ok, this was my second DMB show and was very impressive until the completely unacceptable and outrageous encore. Why the hell would he close wiht I Did It?? Anyways, hearing Help Myself was a true treat, and a truly incredible Bartender helped to remedy the night. Nevertheless, this show will always be tarnished by the lackluster encore. My anger has yet to diminish, now nearly 4 months after the show. Ah, well, Hershey made up for it BIG TIME.

sorta mellow....DONT BURN THE PIG...screw everyone who says this wasnt a good show...PIG AND RAVEN MAN COME ONNN!

User: bipper
Review:
it was a good show, not the kind of show i was expecting though. not a lot of jammin' but still a ton of energy. it was pretty cool to hear songs like "lover lay down" and "pig."

Early on the tour - no punch! Space Between + I Did It for the encore was the lowest point in my DMB fandom.

OK, Finally, after beggin for it all last year, PIG, my First PIG!!! It was a lot sicker live then I would ever imagine. Also Help Myself was another highlight, I fuckin love those two songs live. Had a great time. Drove to PSU with Dan and got up with Heintz, Gofus and Amanda. Had a good time. Driving sucked though. But always worth it for pig.

Decent show, but I was a little disappointed by the encore.

User: CarterisKing
Review:
uh, that's about all i can say about this one. not the best ever, but it's dmb so i guess it was cool? the security sucks ass here I will never see a show here again.

Immediately knew it was the worst encore ever. Very disappointing after travelling from Philly to DC to State College. Almost as if he were fucking with us.

Fantastic show!

User: DMBJames14
Review:
Hmm. Not the best show I've seen! Pig was good, Lover--sweet. End with I Did It-not so great. DDTW was awesome. But it's still DMB

User: DMBjammin

one of my first Dave expiriences...not that great of a show but still a good time

User: DMBMillho80

The best encore ever!!!!

User: DMBphish720

bad ass.....raven...pig...aint it funny how time slips away...different closer would have been better

User: Dodo2step
Review:
Not one of the best shows but Lover Lay down was by far the best. Oh by the way please dont sign i did it again Dave. Pig was awesome too!

User: don1214
Review:
Very mellow show. The setlist was solid- "Raven" was a surprise as was "Pig." I always say that there's no such thing as a bad DMB show- I just feel blessed to be there. It wasn't the best show I've seen them do, but I'm just thankful to have shared in the music.

Had a great time with Friends prior to show. My good friend Erin, me there from Philly. We froze our asses off in waiting for the happy bus to come around. Temperature dropped like 20 degrees between the time we went in, and came out of the venue.

User: gr8fuldead710
Review:
this is the worst venue to see Dave at, skip it and wait till he plays pittsburgh or philly, don't waste your money, but dave played a good show...

User: greybartender
Review:
My first show of the Busted Stuff Tour. I was with my brother and we were luck enough to get a peek at the setlist before the show started. DMB played a lot of radio songs, but it was good to hear some finnished new tunes.

User: greyboy
Review:
I brought my buddy terry to this show because he had never seen DMB before. This show really was a let down. Bartender was awesome! I had great seats right up front. Thanks Warehouse! Help Myself was a big surprise. I Did It as an encore??? Ugh! That was painful! This will go down as the worst DMb show I have been to.

User: heinbach85

a somewhat disappointing setlist, esp. after the amazing performance in 2000.

Fix your damn site, why does punctuation cause syntax errors in reviews?

User: jdmbellen
Review:
i happen to be a big ddtw fan, so i was pretty glad they opened with it. now some people will yell and complain about this show, but i've never left a dmb show un-happy, and i thought there were some good highlights. lover lay down being my favorite. you have to understand how much i love this song, and how forever i convinced myself i would never get to hear it live. so when they started playing it, only min. after i told my friend it was my fav. song that i would prob. never hear, i went crazy. pig? that was great. help myself? where did that come from? def. wasn't expecting that. ok so, the encore kinda killed the show. lets just hope they never end with i did it again.

GOOD SHOW...I DID IT, SPACE BETWEEN AS AN ENCORE...TWO THUMBS DOWN

It was my first show after a long hiatus, so I have no complaints...'cept for the crowd. It was a good show. Dave, 'Roi, Carter, Fonz, Boyd, *all special guests: Thanks for the memories! :)

Ok after the 12-8-00 show I was very exctied to see the boys back here again. DDTW as the opener was fine with me, it was energetic. The crowd was into it and so were the boys. Highpoints were definitely: Pig, Too Much, Help Myself(holy shit!), Bartender. By the time the encore came around my section was dead, but I didnt give in!! AIFHTSA- such a sweet song......TSB- I didnt mind it, nice crowd sing along..I Did It-????? oh well, it wasnt what I had hoped for but other than that it was a great show! (How can you hear Pig, Help Myself, and Bartender and leave unhappy?)

User: JTR_80277
Review:
Great Show, mellow, not as good as seeing DMB out side, still great with new tracks and some classics. I got to hear one of my all time favorites Help MySelf.

User: kevinkramer

sucked..

User: lizard41
Review:
Unfortunately, the worst DMB show I have ever been to. Still a fun evening b/c it was a DMB show...but was dissapointed with the crowd (after having an amazing crowd and an amazing show at UPark in Dec. 2000)...and bummed with a TSB and IDI encore...like I said, it was a DMB show and I was lucky enough to be at it...but I rank this one #11 of the 11 shows I have been to.

Eh. Help Myself was nice though, and Busted Stuff before the voice problem.

This show was a little disappointing. Dave was sick that day and the set list suffered as well. The show was ok, but not one of his best.

Review:
Section S1 Row 2

My Closest DMB experience. I won tickets through the Band's Yahoo auction for Bama Works.

The ending was weak (I did it, NO everyone was shocked), but the show was unbelievable so close. I loved Pig, one of my top 5 favorite songs live. The interaction between the Band members was a lot of fun. I would love to be this close again!

I'll get around to a better review in the future.

Help Myself! Encore sort of a let down but who am I to complain, I could have been working!

User: mtm194
Review:
Well, this show was really dramatic for me. Unfortuantely I got kicked out for a few songs for a ridiculous reason (smoking), but I got back in after a few songs. Pig warmed up my heart when I returned. Terrible encore. After the show I met Stefan who was really chill. I told him that Pig was amazing.

User: PACRRT
Review:
The crowd around me at this show was pretty lame. I was happy to hear PIG, can't believe no one else was!!! For me it was a great show as always.

3rd Show
Pounded 6 beers in 30 minutes prior to snowy walk to Bryce Jordan Center.
Best Bartender ever, gave me chills.
Great seats, looked down on stage from left side.
Would take these seats anytime.

Show was OK - not too excited about the encore of "I Did It," but the did play "Pig" which was terrific.

I love Dave so it was great to see them, but this show was real short just barley two hours it seemed, and no real jam sessions just straight album cut.
