First off...Dave if I hear you play Pig the way you did at this show ever again, I will probably die. Pig was the highlight of the night for me. DIDO was amazing as well. #40 was a treat. Even though it was a tease, I am in love with that song. He can tease me with that all night. STDH was dope. Bartender, BEF, WAYG, Grace and Grey Street...I couldn't have asked for a better concert.

Unbelievable. The setlist was full of powerful and well-loved songs that got the crowd moving and kept the Molson Centre energized throughout the show. It was a perfect mix of mainstream songs and DMB classics from all periods of the band's existence. While some may not have enjoyed the 25-minute rendition of Two Step, I thought it was brilliant. Having Bela Fleck and The Flecktones join DMB on-stage for an incredibly long jam was just amazing. As well, I have never heard a better Ants Marching than the one played on this night in Montreal; I listen to it in my car just about every day. Bravo to the band, I can't wait for their next stop here.

This was the only time I have been in the front row. What an amazing experience! I had a blast and give this show high marks for my seats alone.

This was by far the best DMB show I have been to! The fact that the Flecktones were there helped a little bit, but the setlist was great, the atmosphere was great and the band played great, like they always do!

well, dave played granny, so i have no negative comments. crush was kick-ass. and dave saying "love montreal. think we might move here" was sweet. what about two step you say? well, i dont even know what to do with myself. over 20 minutes long, but i was never bored. those boys from the flecktones know how to jam, and we all know the dave boys are undisputed kings of the rock-your-pants-off-solos.

Show #9 for me. One of the best one, maybe second or third actually. Montreal's crowd is always great. One of the best for sure. As for the setlist, I don't think that there were any flaws...! #41 would have been good, but they've play it the day before in Ottawa (which was Ottawa's Two Step since they closed the show with The Flecktones with it...). 8/10 for sure!

This was my best DMB experience. First of all I shook hands with the entire band as they made their way out, it was awesome. I postitioned myself right at the entrance and called out to Dave when he introduced Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. 'Mr. Matthews!' I called out. He gave me a wave and a 'hi.' The Flecktones were great and then when DMB came out I shook all their hands (except Leroi,) and everyone around me was going nuts. They don't usually have that kind of running out of the tunnel entrance with fans begging for a hand, so it might have fired them up. I like to think that it did, because that show they had more energy then I've ever seen. Dave especially, totally charasmatic. They came out ready for some serious jamming like athletes in a sprint. Gone were last year's teenybopper Everydayers. This was the redemption show, for which they proved their medal. It was awesome. SMTS was the perfect slow-powered opener that gets things building up, (like DDTW.) I was surprised when I didn't hear them break into ASTB, but pleased at the Granny welcome. Other highlights were You Never Know and Where Are You Going which I heard and loved for the first time. The highlight might have been Grace is GOne though. It was awesome Dave just strolled around the stage strumming on his guitar thanking every corner of the audience. From where I was I was almost eye level with the band and it was awesome. The Two Step at the end featuring all the Flecktones was incredible, 10 guys just rocking out, jamming, and taking turns soloing, I don't know if we'll ever see anything like it again. Everyone who was at that show experienced I gift. As I watched the show I felt that if I died, I'd like to fly into that particular concert to let me know that I had made it to heaven.

It was my first Dave concert, and though I don't remember too much to be honest (the concert made me a fan, so I didn't know the songs yet) I've gotta say it was quite an experience. Of what I DO remember, the close-to-half-an-hour Two Step was unbeleivable.

Best setlist ever

In the sound check, the band starts out with the idea of doing When The World Ends, but instead does an improv. It is similar to a funky WTWE. Dave repeats the line "how many more..." throughout a kind of chorus. In the sound check, LeRoi's Three Blind Mice and Tra La La Song are among his random doodling over Carter's drumming. For those of you than only know the 1970's from a history book, the Tra La La Song was the theme song from the saturday morning classic The Bananna Splits Adventure Hour.

this was an INCREDIBLE SHOW!!! i was lucky enough to upgraded to front row center that day and a wonderful guy let me take his #40 sign which was what inevitably caused the song to appear in the encore (well after dave teased it like 3 times and carter saw my sign and went "play that!" at dave)

By far the best show i have seen and possibly ever will see. The setlist was unbelievable. They played every single song that people are looking for in this spring tour and with so much energy that you knew you were getting the best that DMB can offer. Show highlights were hearing Pig live, You Never Know, Lover Lay Down,Where Are You Going (full band) before it gets butchered as a single, Drive In(with new verse), Ants, an electric bartender with its preceding BEF, boyd going insane during crush,and a much more passionate what you are, but what topped off the night was when the flecktones came out to close the show before the encore with the guys and ripped out a 23 minute version of twostep that was so amazing you cant even imagine. By far the best show ive ever seen, and you can tell by just looking at the setlist if you think im exagerating
