I met two girls from Olympia at a bar and ended up down on the floor, 20th row. Greatly appreciated their generosity. Fun show. Grey street was fantastic. Had a great time!

Odd not seeing Dave outdoors, but his return visit to Portland was well worth the wait. Soulive played a great opening set.

As always good show, first time sitting on the side of the stage. which was ok but often cut off carter and boydd. Beauty of Wynonna was unbelievable, dave played it solo, You never know and Pig were also worth remembering

Incredible show!!!!! This one rocked my world. I still get goosebumps when ever I think about it. For the Beauty of Wynona with Dave solo was awesome along with possibly the greatest Bartender ever performed. Rock on guys!

This was my first non-gorge show, so to me, the entire show had a different feel. Instead of driving for hours and "hiking" into the ampitheater, I hoped on the metro, ate dinner at Cuccina and went to the show. The set was okay, Everyday had been released in February, so those were the majority of the songs played. Every show with DMB is great.

Eric Krasna (spelling?) came on for an incredible version of Watchtower. Realized tonight how incredible What you are has become.

This is the only show that I have seen DMB play inside and the band is definately meant to play outside. The seats gave me a different appreciation for the band because I sat behind the stage and watched Carter the whole time. Dave came out with Soulive and played Joyful Girl!! This song kicks ass. I did not remember Eric Krasno coming out for Watchtower but I do remember that Watchtower rocked and that it was rumored that Tripping Billies wasn's supposed to close the set but that Boyd rocked that shit so hard that they just ended it.

This was my very first dmb show, yeah, i know, what was i doing since 92-02 . anyways I did not know what to expect even though i knew alot of their songs because they came out when i was a freshman in high school, but it was good show that turned me on to a different culture literally over night and have been going to shows as much as possible since then. I dont really remember any of the songs but i do remember the jams and how powerful they were and i think thats what got me hooked. Now, when people ask, Is dmb a jam band or not? I always refer back to the first show I saw in Portland and what got this dmb craze started for me and its just good music and it didnt hurt that there were a tons of hot chicks dancing around the arena all night.

Missed first half of first set, arrived late and bought a last second nose bleed seat in the arena and caught from Big Eyed Fish on. Loved the songs with Soulive member playing, Watchtower was the best ever!

The setlist was awesome but the show was a little short. I was hoping to here a couple more old songs like Ants or Two Step.

Had awesome seats, but didn't like the indoors. Much prefer the Gorge! Grey Street rocked, and my straight shot view of Dave was unforgettable.

Review:
great show, some cool stuff in the set. could've done without the teenie-bopin-everyday-crazy-rose garden-crowd, though. soullive tore it up, and i really dug the watchtower version w/krasno(yes, krasno).

nice show even from the nosebleed section. being 6 months pregnant was interesting at a concert. since i didnt fit into the shirts, i bought a hat. :D

Awesome Watchtower

Awesome show by the band. Billies was ripping - Boyd rocked. People around us though were lame -making noise and not paying attention to the music. I don't like those people.

dave sang Joyful Girl with soulive during the opener. had to read the lyrics of a piece of paper in his hands. i remember hoping that trey anastasio would show up. he was playing in salem around the same time. portland crowd kind of sucked, actually. wonder if thats why they quit coming.
i was SO into DMB then. LOVED THE SHOW

Terrible venue for a show-anywhere else this could have been a good show.

One of the worst shows I saw, actually moved to section 326 but still not good. Sounded bad in the closed arena... not one of my favorite shows.

Just a fun show. With a great set-list. And the first time hearing YNK. Dave singing Joyful Girl with Soulive was a really cool surprise.

Nothing too exciting but a fairly solid show and one hell of a Watchtower.
