Not my favorite of the 3 shows I've been to... lacked some needed energy, although the mellow twist was a nice change. Great to see the old stuff - #41 was awesome!! Last year's Darien show was better, but I still loved to see DMB.

Great Show...Amazing Versions of Billies and Jimi Thing...Grace is Gone and Grey Street was an excelent encore...Sound was much better then the first night at Polaris...probably helped that i was in section 200 by the end of the night. Woooo

The overall show and lawn seats were great. It was full of energy and the sunset and fireworks just added to an overall excellent show. The only setback to the show in my opinion was that the show was very mellow, minus a couple of songs. Great jam session in Jimi Thing and it was great hearing Tripping Billies to end off the show. Nice mix and great selection of laid-back songs, but I would have liked to hear some more of their up-tempo stuff.

I hope the recording is better than the sound at the show. All I remember is 15 year olds with cell phones asking their friends on the other end if they could hear the music.. how annoying is that?

Not the best of the shows I've seen...The setlist was awesome, but Boyd was sooo out of tune the whole night...So that was a damper but the rest of the guys were kick ass as usual...I finally got to see Pay For What You Get, Dreaming Tree, and Cry Freedom live...

The whole thing clicked when dave hit the first riff in Stay. Then the show took off and it was a non-stop ride untill the end where he closed with Grey Street, the song he opened with the year before

User: cgerber563
Review:
I really thought that it was a good show... I had lawn seats, so I really didn't get the full effect so-to-speak... Dave played #41, which I haven't heard in a couple of years... which made my night.

User: chrrie
Review:
i thought it was an awesome show when you look at the final setlist. i was thinking there that he's playing a lot of mellower songs, but i'm all for that too, since we all need to break out the soft stuff at some point. i almost shit myself when #41 started playing because i wasn't even expecting it. kit kat jam was awesome too, along with jimi thing, trippin billies and grey street. but, the best part of my night was the last stop - it made me forget about my bad seats and the cold weather!

Loved the close with Grace and Grey Street. Actually saw LeRoi in the park riding one of the roller coasters about two hours before the show. The same ride the park shut down two runs after he got off because the ride made a loud cracking noise.

It was cold outside! Anyway, the setlists are not the traditional setlists of years past. After 14 shows, I believe that the setlist was very mellow! Not as many jams as I would have like but the highlights were: Stay, Kit Kat Jam, Jimi Thing, Grey Street. It was a good show!

How much more awesome can a summer time concert be! I was a little disappointed that they didn't play Grey Street - until the end!!!! I was on the grass which was alright in its self but I am begin to feel I was in grade school all over again! Too many rowdy youngsters that drank too much. Actually they were pretty ovnoxious but I didn't let them bother me and I enjoyed the show. Great versions of the Last Stop - so much energy with the lights and all! Grey Street - they missed a verse and screwed up some of the music but who cares! Can't wait until the Toronto show!

I thougth the show was pretty mellow. A few tunes really stodd out though. Jimi Thing best version I've headrd live yet. I didn't mind stay as opener although it was surprising. Tripping billies,Grace is gone and loving wings highlights for me. Had inside seats but spent the show on lawn after 3 songs thought the sound was much better. Band sounded a little rusty but once again i wasn't disappointed.next shows for me spac.

Good for the slow songs, for me at least because I'm going to 7 shows this summer. But the energy didn't seem to be there. Plus there was a pole blocking my way. But other than that I love the boys and they did awesome on the slow songs that I normally don't hear. So, out of 10 I give the show an 8 1/2...I had a really good time and I am in the love with Dave's little story when he announced the opening band. All in all a great night...*Dannielle*

Sunset, rollercoasters in the backdrop along with fireworks, DMB jamming it and playing a chill set - awesome night - amazing. Once in a lifetime show! Normally I like up-beat shows and I would be dissapointed but it was not a let down, I enjoyed the slow jams that night, good times!

Overall this was a pretty good show, I had lawn seats, but lawn is always a fun place to be. The band started off pretty good with Stay then slowed it up a bit with if i had it all, but #41 was really great, and added a lot to the show, pay for what you get was a real big surprise, and was very good, through the middle of the show it got very slow and mellow, nothing wrong with that, but the whole show picked up again with the last stop, i have to say this was the best song of the whole night, the lights added so much, and it was so intense and had soooo much energy, its just a great live song, and its the song i wanted to hear the most. The dreaming tree i have to say was the biggest surprise of the night, i did not see that coming at all, and it was just awesome! I have to say the jimi thing last night was the best version i have ever heard, everyone just went all out. Boyd went crazy on tripping billies, like he always does, and everyone put their all..except dave, into grey street, he missed a whole verse! And ofcourse i was loving when steffan intro'd grace is gone with the steel guitar, it adds a lot to the song, but anyway it was a good show overall, with a few drawbacks...cough cough...where are you going...cry freedom..loving wings....but besides that the show was great. Can't wait to see how spac turns out

This was the second and best show I've seen yet, I also went to the Rochester show in the winter, the setlist was amamzing, #41 totaly rocked the house, the jam at the end of Jimi Thing was the greatest.

User: DMBcrew36
Review:
Wow what an amazing show. Nobody tailgates like Darien and people from Buffalo. The sunset was really amazing during the show. The firework finale at the end of Dreaming Tree really made it something special. Dave was really funny all nice saying the most random ramblings into the mic. Dave went insane during his Jimi Thing solo. Leroi was great on pennywhistle during Dreaming Tree. Carter Beauford is my hero.

This was one of many shows i've attended at darien lake and my first Dave concert. The Dave concert was outstanding and i can't say enough about it.

this was a great show, the forcast for a rain storm held off for just long enough for dave and the band to put on a great performance

User: FatAlbert
Review:
UPS: (1) He played a few songs I've never heard live such as The Dreaming Tree, Pay for What You Get, Cry Freedom and Lover Lay Down (nice hearing when you're with your girl). (2) It was nice to get a little buzz on and hear some sweet tunes. DOWNS: (1) Not a cheap concert to go to. Though I love Dave concerts they're expensive for me (being a poor college student). (2)I'm not a big fan of Kit Kat Jam, or When the World Ends (Just a matter of opinion there). (3)Could have done without my girlfriend's drunken anger (4)The show goes by too fast! Only because I had a great time. Overall: The best Dave concert I've been to (2nd to his performance with Tim Reynolds in April '03)

User: fatty7999

Great show, very chill. Would have liked alittle more energy, but the bands performance really made up for it. Dave seemed really into it, especially on the jimi jam. my next show won't be all the way to Nissan. can't wait.

OOOPS....Sorry about that I accidently put i was at the columbus ohio show but i ment this show sorry....THIS SHOW WAS MY FIRST SHOW AND LET ME TELL YA THE BEST CONCERT I MEAN IT WAS EVERYTHING I EXPECTED AND SOME....He played Dreaming Tree that has rarity of like 4 and Last Stop which was perfect considering the war and everything and Kit Kat Jam!!!! What more could u ask for?? Dave REally know how to put on a show. He works the crowd and when he sings and plays he makes love to the song and the guitar!!! and Boyd Boyd went friggen Crazy during Tripping Billies it was awsome...And we cna't forget Carter during grey street and Last Stop I love how Carter never stops smiling which shows the crowd that they are really having a good time...and Leroi during Lover Lay Down and dreaming tree...and Stefan not only does he have looks almost as good as DAVES but he and Boyd and Dave all really really get into the song when they play Stefan dances around with dave and Boyd just goes nuts its awsome...and Mr. Butch Taylor on the keyboards...BOYS ALL I GOTS TO SAY IS KEEP DOING WHAT UR DOING!!!!! and Dave I'll see ya when u tour in the winter.

What A Show!!!!!!!!! Stay was a great opener! Really got the show going. If I had it all was nice. YNK and #41, It was nice to see them together, though #41 was a bit short. Then it got melow, PFWYG...NICE, the crowd had no idea what it was. Someone asked next to me if it was a new song :) KKG got everyone up. WTWE OK. I like it live. Then the show turned the corner...This is where it gets good! Cry Fredom, slowly becoming my favorite song, (replacing Warehouse). THE LAST STOP!!!!!!!! Wow, amazing. I love this song and the Reprise was great. Lover....there was a lot of toung tying going on at the point...The Stone...I have heard this a number of times...this was the best version. They were right on...the enging was great. JIMI...I saw them do jimi on 6/23/01 so it was almost two years to the day that in My opinion is the best Jimi of them all because of the band intro, but this was great. Boyd did his thing, Roi had his moment and Dave did a little jaming of his own. AWSEM MAN! Then the Dreaming tree. Great....and billies waht a show to this point.... Then the Encore...GIG and Grey...I don't know anyone who could have picked this. It was amazing. I wanted Nancise>Warehouse but I was happy. Grey Street...Amazing. But the highlight of the show for me was before, when I handed out 5 shows to people on line. Thanks to Onesweetworld.org... I cant wait to see the boys again!

Well what more can be said... Tripping Billies, Jimi Thing, Dreaming Tree, Pay for What You Get, Last Stop, Lover Lay Down, and did I hear Cry Freedom at some point in the show. Setlist was like the good ole days of Dave, and reminded me of a day long ago. Can't wait til SPAC. See ya'll there

User: gregory311
Review:
From the cheap seats: Sound at Darien Lake is always marginal, so that was already expected before the show started. Setlist was one of the best that I've seen, better than any I've attended other than the D&T show at UB in 1999. Finally! Songs other than the standard DDTW (which I do like) Bartender, Rapunzel, etc. Band played well and the show was a nice change of pace. The only problem I have is with the venue. As I stated before, the sound at DL is shit. Their idea of renting lawn chairs (at $17 bucks a pop) was preposterous. Most of the lawn crowd was decent, but there were a number of drunken young males being complete assholes. The one who threw a lawnchair into the unsuspecting crowd in front of him was the absolute lowest of the low. If you read this, man, you are a worthless piece of shit in the truest sense of the word. Great setlist, good show, ok crowd. A, B+, and C respectively. See you at Starlake. J.

This was my first Dave show ever...even though I've been a fan for a little while now...drove 7 hours to get there, but it was COMPLETELY worth it. There was one moment during 'jimi thing' when they showed Boyd on the big screen and he was goin nuts on the 'lin with a huge grin on his face. Then they showed Dave and he was jammin' out on the guitar. It's then that you are reminded of why you absolutely love this band. Great show - can't wait to see them again in august - wishing they'll play 'say goodbye'!!

Despite dealing with a fight in the lot, I didn't let it ruin my enjoyment of the show. The setlist was real good for this show, but seemed like the band wasn't at its best.

Waited 8 shows to finally hear my favorite song, but it was worth the wait.

I thought it was an awesome show. Jimi Thing was absolutely rockin, its awesome to see Dave do his dance thing when he jams out. Boyd was going crazy all night, and you could tell Stefan and Carter wer in their spot. I think they were playing some of the songs to try them out for the tour, but who cares cause they were absolutely awesome. The Last Stop, what a song to hear because it is so rair, as well as #41. I read all the show reviews of how people want to hear that song, well I got too and I loved it. The Dreaming Tree, WOW!!! how unexpected. I thought it was a little on the low side bt when they jammed, they jammed. I thought a Two Step might have been coming for the closer, I like Grace Is Gone but it would have been nice to hear something else since it was a mellow show. Darien Lake was a fun park for the concert, a good lawn, but the parking lot was not as fun, SPAC has a good one. I cant wait until SPAC.

User: leatherman2222
Review:
Last Stop and Tripping Billies were the greatest performances that I have ever seen from the band in my limited experience. I was also happy to see the best versions of both #41 and Jimi Thing that I have seen to date. However, I was upset to with the overload of slow songs by the band. It was great to see Dreaming Tree, and Lover Lay Down, and Cry Freedom, and Pay For What you Get, and Grace Is Gone, and If I Had It All, and When The World Ends, and The Stone but not in the same night. That was the first time that I was ever bored at a DMB show since they played Sleep To Dream Her in 2001. Especially when they started off with Stay and the crowd was all into the show and ready to rock out, and then I think pretty much everyone in the crowd let out a little bit of a groan of disappointment when he started playing If I Had It All. Why in the world are they still playing songs off of Everyday at every show. And as if the slow songs weren't enough, during Pay For What You Get some idiots decided to crowd surf. This was by far the most irritating thing that anybody in the world has ever done. Then some idiots started pushing people around and being jackasses. I guess thats the price you pay for lawn seats. Anyhow, despite all of my grievances, I must say I had a great time and was glad to be there. For anybody who isn't fortunate enough to have seen DMB in concert yet, I can't recommend it highly enough. This was one of my least favorite shows, and it was still freaking awesome.

Okay, the weather was okay. It was a little chilly for this time of year, but I am happy that it didnt rain. The show was great. The setlist was filled with many more mellow songs, and I was waiting for them to bust out Warehouse or 2 Step, but they didnt. It was nice to hear Last Stop, Billies, PFWYG, and they jammed out of Loving Wings nicely. Overall it was a great show.

If not for the lackluster encore, would have been one of the best shows of the tour most likely.

Really energetic version of Jimi, best one I have ever personally heard. Stay opener was a surprise for sure. Really nice Loving Wings. Again, Encore was weeeeak. And the venue sucks.

Just an amazing show, Boyd was indeed out of tune, but I didn't really notice while there. To get PFWYG, Last Stop, Cry Freedom, and Dreaming Tree in one show, in addition to Stay, Lover>Stone, YNK, 41, Jimi, Billies, etc. how could you not be thrilled.

Very good show. But i wish it was more up beat. Jimi Thing and Last STop were awsome.

great. he played a lot of songs he rarely plays, which was awesome. although i would have liked to hear watchtower, crush and one sweet world, it was still a great show.

slow setlist, but hearing Last Stop and an insane version of Jimmy Thing made it worthwhile.

Terrible! Hardcore DMB fans should be treated better than this! I mean yeah they played a great opener, JIMI ROCKED!, and yes, they played the last stop which was sweet, billies is always a fun song, 41 was good, but WHEN HAS A CONCERT HAD SO MUCH MELLOW STUFF TO IT?!! I mean, c'mon, you never know, PFWYG, loving wings, WAYG, KKJ, cry freedom, lover lay down, stone, and dreaming tree...all in one concert? That's just wrong! Can't wait to see Dave and Friends on 12/20/03 at Rochester!

I thought that this show was very good. The only problem with this concert i thought was that it was too mellow at some points. But besides that it was very strong and i give it a 9.

Awesome show! The Dreaming Tree and Last Stop were the highlights!

Not the best I've seen but not the worst. Got to hear some songs I either hadn't heard in a while or ever. Stay is not a real good opener though it did get the crowd pumped. But then they drained the energy right back out with IIHIA. The setlist was very balanced which was nice but too mellow. The few uptempo songs had a lot of energy especially Tripping Billies. Grey street is not a solid show closer and it looks even worse after they used Billies to close the main set. The vibe of the crowd was horrible and it made me long for the great crowds of SPAC which is where I'll catch up with the boys later this summer.

This show was far to chilled out for me wanted to hear more fast songs...last stop, tirpping, were incrdible. Jimi thng was the best version ever, then i went to star lake a week later!

Darien is great for tailgating, but the lawn is horrible fan wise. Always a fight to disrupt the show at some point.

What an amazing show! The energy of the crowd was echoed by the bands! #41, Cry Freedom, Last Stop, Lover Lay Down, The Stone, Dreaming Tree....need I go on? The setlist was insane!!! Stay was a great opener, and Grey Street ended the night on an upswing.....that parking lot sucked!!!

Most amazinf show i have ever been to. The people and energy of the concert was otstanding....

Of course it was great. It was DMB. However, I have to agree somewhat with the other people who were not crazy about the setlist, and I really don't know why. I love all the songs individually, and Tripping Billies and Last Stop were awesome, but somehow the set wasn't one of the better ones I've heard. And the virtuosity that we usually see from the band was toned way down, with the exception of Boyd, who was on FIRE. Dave, Carter, Leroi and Stefan were all pretty subdued, I thought, at least til the end when Dave rocked out with Boyd. Dunno. Not one of my favorite concerts, but still amazing.

My first show. Was expecting it to be a bit more upbeat, but oh well. Still good.
