Worst DMB show I've been to. The speakers that were facing the lawn went out and they were never fixed...you couldn't hear anything.

This was a good show to be at. It was my first show being really close to the stage and it was a blast. Excellent show.

Wow! This was my first time attending a DMB concert, and I am hooked on this band! Awesome music... they really know how to put on a show. I ended up going alone because a friend of mine backed out at the last minute... but it didn't even matter everyone around me was so cool and nice... I felt instantly at home with the crowd... it was nice chatting to other DMB fans. Seek Up is definately my favorite song! DMB will definately be in my summer plans... and I will definately be attending all of their shows when they come to Chicago and Alpine! It is truly an experience worth living.

Awesome. What a show

User: bdb23
Review:
Average at best. This show just didn't have the energy that we're all used to from Dave and the boys. The setlist was also very mellow. There were a few songs that caught me by surprise (OSW and R&R), but overall the songs just didn't get the crowd moving. Great start with Grey St. I was really pumped at that point, but it just seemed to fizzle from there. The band did have its moments, though. Seek Up and Pig were great, as usual. Two Step started awesome but then closed on a weak note. I honestly thought that the band would do at least one more jam to send us out, but they didn't. That was probably the weakest encore I've seen yet. Plus, when you have almost half your setlist from your last 2 CDs, it leaves the long time fans feeling like they're missing something when it's all done. I'm sure the younger fans loved the show, though. I would have to say that this one falls towards the bottom.

Besides Tinley having sound problems, all around great show. In my opinion, any Dave show is a great show. Sweet setlist including crush, one sweet world, and a 20 minute two step that was outstanding.

a little above average, great two step

The show itself was great. Dave put on a wonderful show. The quality of the sound at Tweeter though was pretty bad. Halfway through the show the sound got really muddy, it got better towards the end, but it was kind of depressing. It was my first DMB show though and it was still really fun.

we were on lawn and the sound at tweeter really sucks but since we were on lawn, the sound didn't echo like it does in PAV. it was a great show either way.

Very good show. I was in the Box Seats and was able to see Dave perfectly.

For the most part I enjoyed this show. The sound was very bad at the beginning but after this was fixed it ended up being good. Loved the very long Two Step to finish it off.

The show from our seats was great. We were on the left/middle near the back and could hear everything great. But I had some friends in the lawn and they said the speakers weren't on and couldn't hear a thing. But I enjoyed it!

User: crash36

It wasn't the best show that I've attended but they had many jams that they really were into. Overall I would say it was a great night!

This show was good - cuz it was DMB. Sound on the lawn was not so good.....Just happy to be at a DMB show, though! :-)

Really shitty speakers.

User: dmbbubba
Review:
Setlist was ok. The sound system sucked! This was the worst show I'd been to just because there was a lot of audio problems. Also, people were way too drunk. I helped at least 3 people get off the ground and into the hands of medical staff because they were passing out. Terrible. But, setlist was ok.

Awesome show yall. Definitely shyin away from the newer stuff, with some great old school jams.

Amazing, they never cease to amaze me. I found out the day of the concert that I was going. I was sitting in class telling friends I wish I could go. Then I went home, called someone, and they said I could go! It was great!

The band played many crowd favorites and the enviornment was unbelievable. As my first outdoor live concert of theirs, i saw them jam as 30,000+ Dave heads were in awe of what they could do.

The World lives up to it rep once again, horrible sound!! Loud crackling for the first half. The band jammed nicely though!

User: Great lnventor

Highlights: Grey Street opener, Crush, Rhyme & Reason, Grace Is Gone, Seek Up, Pig, What You Are, Gravedigger, and Two Step. Attended with Dario. I still vividly remember running in after chugging alcohol in the parking lot. We got through the gates, I was ahead of him and the second I had a visual of the stage Grey Street hit. Ended up jumping the rail and sat pavilion with moms. Good time.

Bad sound that night. Arbs ditched me.

Good show, but this venue sucks. They didn't have the rear speakers turned on until the 7th or 8th song. Grey Street was great. Two Step encore was sweet!

Worst concert that ive been to. The sound was in and out... and the band just really did not seem to be in it. Seek up was cool and so was two step and pig but the rest of the set list really lacked there. there was a 4 song lull with just slow tempo and it just killed the momentum in the lawn seats.

Review:
The Tweeter Center is terrible. Lots of stupid pillars in the way so it was hard to see the band. The acoustics in this place are awful. And then on top of that, some speakers were blown out or something! Can't hold that against Dave though. Avoid the Tweeter Center!

This was a cool show. It wasn't the best, but it wasn't the worst I've been too. Seek Up was a great surprise, Pig kicked ass and Two Step was the best version I have heard. I had good seats so the sound was good, all in all it was a decent show.

Best show I have ever seen, I have 2 daughters with middle names after this show, Grey and Grace are their middle names and my wife's and I first song as a married couple was Crush. He played all of these and more. Great show!

"The World", as Dave still calls it, needs to upgrade their sound system. I can't wait until Solider Field is ready for use again.

great setlist. sound was awful but u had to of known it wouldve been bad. i think the band made up 4 the poor sound quality with songs like pig gravegigger, twostep to close it, and a huge suprise to me was seekup in the middle of the show

Aweful venue! Speakers went out in the lawn, half the crowd left, people actually screamed "we hate you dave!" I almost had to fight someone for goodness sakes! THe boys put on a hell of show in spite of all the crap. Only gets a 4 because Tinley park should go away.

User: TjMarnell
Review:
Pretty Good Show. Some of the speakers blew during Crush and the overall sound wasnt spectacular being in the lawn, but otherwise, being a DMB Show, its far better than any others!

User: wabaa17

Ended up getting lost the way there, which wasn't a surprise to me.Took 3hrs which shoulda been 1hr-1/2.Anyway, my ultimate tune Grey opened so i knew the night was already complete with more to come. Followed by a little Crush with a consistent setlist to come.Dreaming Tree TeAsE....into Seek Up.The only way I can put What You Are tonight as a closer was sickening.Gravedigger which was a highlight of the night, then Watchtower tease into Two Step 20 PLUS minutos, end of a good night.

User: what will i say

Sweetness. Very nice show, Pig, Crush, Two Step, What You Are, Grave Digger, Has Anyone Seen the Bridge?

User: WindyCityFan
Review:
I remember really enjoying this show from the front of the pavillion but friends I knew with lawn seats had a much different experience. I guess one of the speakers blew and the monitors were off and on.
