Wow. What an amazing show. This was my first show ever and I couldn't ask for a better time. We were lucky enough to get an upgrade from the Warehouse to sit in the front row! Yes, how lucky did I get for my first show? It was amazing.

Best show I've ever been to. Best seats I've ever had... I mean I've been closer but we were in the front row above the floor right by Boyd. It was a perfect night, I had so much fun.

5th show for me. All I remember was that it was really loud and a solid show. First time I heard Crush (perfect) and Gravedigger and it's really slow in this show, very different from what it is now. I left happy after a great Rapunzel.

First time I brought my mom to a DMB show. She loved it

great show all around my first rapunzel and it was amazing

User: Dave41Fan
Review:
Three reasons why this show is much cooler than any other in the history of DMB: 1) So Right as an opener. No better way to get the good vibes flowing. 2) "Gravedigger / When you dig my grave ? Make it shallow / So that I can feel the rain..." 3) I was there. Snoogans.

One of my faves, although the crowd was so chatty around me that it made parts of the show hard to pay attention to. We did not have the greatest seats. Couldn\'t help wanting a bigger peak in Bartender and the denouement seemed endless and quiet, but Butch ruled Crush and from then on it was all killer. What an encore! I remember being absolutely drenched from dancing. Fun times.

I had a blast at this show. Partied with some pilots staying at our hotel before the show and then enjoyed Ben & Jerry's inside. LIOG and Gravedigger were the two highlights tonight.

We got bum seats cuz ticketbastard sucks! Behind the stage right corner(behind boyd). 5 of us went and it was a pretty good show, not better than Soldier Field 2years before, Aint it funny was a nice lil additive, as well as hearing for the very first time, "Improv" which became the wonderful "Gravedigger." Nice set.

My first show. I didn't know enough of the songs to really appreciate this show the way I would now, but I remember Granny and Crush really kicking the show into gear and an incredible LIOG with Carter throwing his drumstick about 30 feet in the air and catching it without even looking up. The most enduring memory is Gravedigger, which was played differently but not with the Loving Wings chords as it says on the site. It was actually the first chord to Pantala Naga Pampa picked string by string really slowly. Really beautiful song, it actually took me a while to get used to the finished one.

It was a very good show, Allstate has great sound no matter where you sit. You can be behind the stage and everything sounds great.

Jen & I drove out and met Justin and Amy at the Raddison and got a little pre-party going. We rolled over to the show and got to our seats just in time. The show was solid with plenty of great tunes like Grey Srteet and LIOG to keep everyone rocking. Hearing the early version of Gravedigger was pretty cool. The Raddison both before and after the show was like a scene out of Almost Famous. Every room had a party going on and everyone was really pretty cool.

Good show and great sound with ok setlist wasn't crazy about the new stuff

Quality show, so right was great, Gravedigger was played for the first time here I think and it was very basic. Somebody behind me yelled "this song sucks" while Dave was solo during the encore.

Review:
Allstate night one... fantastic show. The crowd had so much energy. Seeing What You Are for the first time (with the outro) blew my socks off. One Sweet World was beautiful. Bartender was powerful. LIOG had two solos...BT's frenzy on the violin and BT's melow jam on the keys...very nice contrast. I thought the roof was gonne cave in during Two Step. Dave was bouncing around the stage like a madman. First time to hear Gravedigger, and to tell you the truth, I like this little improv verson a little better than the newer, more complete version (maybe I'm just biased). PNP->Rapunzel was fun...not necessarily the best closer, but a lot of energy, and a lot of fun none-the-less. Great show

Cool show....Rob and Natalie showed us another great time!!

good one

User: JTR36
Review:
This was one of my favourites. Dave opened with So Right which is a friggin awesome song...i dont care what the everyday haters say. Crush was cool as usual and i was one of the first ones to hear gravedigger which he improvised for our concert and then decided to keep it. Pantala Nagala Pamapa and Rapunzel, and How Time Slips Away ended the concert perfectly. I also fist heard the what you are scat and "pray for me mothaf%#$a" at this concert...absolutely awesome.

SWEEEEET show. Was with my best friend at this amazing show. Bartender, Lie in our graves. two of my favorite songs. soooooo great. Raven was a great one to hear also,, can actually understand what he is saying now. Great to hear the willie song and the nice workings of a new song, gravedigger.

My first show, nothing to compare it to so I thought it was amazing. Now that I've been to 2 shows at Alpine, I like the outdoor venue much better than the Arena, but it was still a great show. The Two Step jam was awesome.

Merely a prelude to the following night, but this show is also a good stand alone. It was cool to hear an evolving gravedigger, and I always like when Boyd gets into the violin solos, in this case the result was one of the best versions of Lie in Our Graves to date. Crush, When the World Ends, Two Step, and Raven were the highlights for me.

My first indoor show!! I had awesome seats. This is the show when I fell in love with What You Are (live). We were also the first group to hear Gravedigger. This show was spectacular.

My first DMB concert. Blown Away.

User: what will i say
Review:
Good show, the crowd wasn't into it very much. One of the bands more 'chill shows.' Lots of Lillywhite/Busted Stuff was played as well as a handful of Everyday songs. Crush, What You Are and Two Step were the highlights
