We took a bunch of people to this show from Northwest Missouri State and had a great time. One of teh guys saw his 3 favorite songs all in this show, The stone, crush and two step. the highlights of this show, were the redemption song tease and stir it p tease, not to mention teh bad ass jam during two step.

Played some songs I wasn't expecting... (I.E One Sweet World, Crush) My best friend loved One Sweet World... I was happy to see him so excited. :) This was my other friend's first DMB concert, and they played his favorite songs too (So Much to Say and Too Much). Once again, much excitement... Man... I am looking forward to July 12, 2003: Time to head for Verizon again with high hopes of PERHAPS a Dancing Nancies tune :)

Great Encore! Before the Radio stations overplayed Gravedigger.

Awesome show!!! DMB is incredible! I must admit Dave was struggling a bit with his voice, but let's just say I wish I sounded that good on a bad night. The Stone was a sweet opener. I loved the intro played before One Sweet World. Can't really pick specific highlights - they don't have a song I don't like. I was hoping for Two Step all night. At the time I was a little disappointed when he played Gravedigger, just because I'd never heard it before. But of course, since then I've come to love it as well. But I about flipped out when they started Two Step after I'd been yelling for it so much. We only had lawn tickets...but it was still great. I just hope we get up closer next time.

Show #3 for me. Great time.

I thought the show was pretty good. I was a little disapointed in how short it was. But I undestand, Dave is getting old and it's harder for him to play longer and his voice was horse. I thought the set list was good, could have been better, but I thought it was good. Some friends of mine that went said they were completely disapointed and thought the show sucked. I thought the crowed was great. Everyone got into it. They were singing and dancing and having a great time. All in all, I was happy with the show and the performance that the band put on. The lighting and the sound was amazing. The crew did a great job, well in my eyes anyways!!!

Great Setlist!!! This is probably my most memorable Dave show, now that I look back on it.

My first Dave show... it was awesome!

My first DMB show ever. It was a great show from what I could hear in my lawn seats; the rest of the audience wouldn't shut up! Despite Dave's sore throat, incredible show!

This was my first Dave concert ever! Our seats sucked; we were on the lawn far, far, far from the stage at Sandstone, but the band rocked and as long as I could hear it over the clatter of the drunk beliggerent and generally bored crowd, I was dancing and things were great. All in all, a mixed experience.

This show was my first DMB concert experience, but after seeing the band live, I can tell you that it won't be my last one. This comepletely was the best thing ever.

Not one of the better shows, but the Gravedigger solo acoustic was a surprise.

Really solid show... and I correctly predicted The Stone as the opener!

Dave had a hoarse voice...Crowd was weak

User: Heymylove
Review:
Good because it was Dave but missing the classics like Tripping Billies, Ants Marching, and most of Under the Table. Gravedigger and Two Step were good encore though.

Had to sit WAY back on the lawn and this was the bands 6th show in 9 days and it showed, dave hardly had a voice to sing the falsetto parts in "open up my head and let me out" and "One Sweeeeet World", among other lines. The almost 20 minute 2 step at the end, and the jam during Loving Wings was worth the whole show though.

I thought this was a great show. The only problem was the audience. They were lame and rude. They wanted to hear all of the hits and nothing else. I thought the set list was awesome and even though Dave was sick, he still did a great job!

awesome show, most of the crowd could have been better in the lawn

This show was much better than two years ago at Sandstone. The Stone was a great way to build into the concert and was followed by Pig, which was amazing as well. The show drew heavily from BTCS and later, but with a few earlies as well. Gravedigger and Two Step was the best encore I'd ever heard.

Did anyone care that Dave was a little hoarse? I didn't think so.

My second show in one week! an amazing setlist, but I am still convinced that DMB doesn't like KS as much as St. Louis. It was pretty much the same setlist as a week ago though... Read my full review at nancies.org

In my opinion, one of the best setlists of the tour, but the audience sucked as it always does. C'mon! Talking during "Loving Wings"?... these people shouldn't have even been allowed anywhere near the concert grounds.

This was my first live DMB show. Overwhelmed and hooked after this show and I am guessing this show is not even in the top 100 shows of all time.

User: shroominhumpy
Review:
My first DMB experience live. I was blown away. The rendition of Watchtower about brought tears to my eyes, and being able to dance with all the drunk ladies during When the World Ends was fun too. I love Dave and hopes he comes back to KC year after year.

Bad Ass All the way around- walked in during Stone opener, stellar show throughout- Watchtower, Two Step were highlights-

Review:
Fantastic show. Great setlist, I was finally able to hear Pig live. I was in the lawn, which sucked due to the huge population of douchebags. They were loud and stupid, chatting during Loving Wings and Gravedigger like it was social time. My other lawn experience at The Woodlands Pavilion in 2001 was great, but the lawn crowd in KS showed no respect for the musicians or those who paid to be there. Great set, though. Strong opening with The Stone. Pig kicked ass, of course, seeing as how it's Pig and all. Grey Street was good, but I'm really hurting from the absence of the fourth verse. One Sweet World with its accompanying intro was very welcome, and So Much To Say -> ASTB -> Too Much was absalutely fantastic. Dave whipped out a badass solo in the bridge. Jammed out Jimi Thing, which was nice. Loving Wings was good, I assume. I was too busy hating everybody around me to enjoy the song, though. Stefan introduced us to Watchtower by teasing The Maker and Stir It Up. The show's finale was Dave solo on Gravedigger with the whole gang coming back out for Two Step. Two Step was the last song I saw 3 months prior in Marysville, CA, but it's Two Step, so no complaints here.

Review:
Awesome show. Got the tix from a friend just 4 days before the show. Dave's voice was a bit horse, but he dug down deep and gave a solid performance. HIGHLIGHTS: Two Step was AWESOME!! This was soo cool! Watchtower was really cool. OSW was neat to hear, as was SMTS>>ATSB>>Too Much.
