This was an absolutely AMAZING show. They played the most Watchtower I have ever heard.

Seek ^ was huge, I swear its best played at SPAC, during the encore break i was whispering in this girls ear "Hey my friend, I see your eyes are troubled", then they bust into BOWA and I was admired as a hero. Always a good thing.

amazing set, amazing show. there was a ton og energy from the band all night. highlights for me were everyday(#36), warehouse, help myself, seek up, the new song, the stone, and of course the kick ass watchtower they played. the encore was by far the best one i have ever seen after about 10 shows with bowa-->billies. probably the best show i have seen, they always amaze me by playing songs that i do not expect to hear. i do not know how night 2 is going to top this show, i guess ill have to wait and see;-), peace.

User: deer20032003

From the start to the finish best energy of any show I've been to. Setlist was about a 7. Watchtower was by far the best I've ever heard live. I thought it was as good as any version I've ever listended too. Never seen Dave scream like that. Seek Up and Grace is Gone also awesome.

very good show. everyday was a good opener. hightlights were help myself, seek up, a new song, the ending to grace is gone, best watchtower i have ever seen or heard, and maybe the best encores i have heard too, bowa- billies. dave had a lot of energy and so did stefan. overall good show but i am very excited for tomorrow.

User: dmbfan0874

Seek Up was, by far, the highlight. . .

User: dmbgal3
Review:
This was the best show I have ever seen. The energy from the crowd and band was amazing through the whole set. All along the watchtower was hands down the best song all night. Great encore

Lawn seats... not as much a crowd showing as there usually is. The dates were late in summer and a lot of people were heading to college and returning

User: dmbnikker
Review:
Soooooo good. DMB at SPAC is my favorite, he played a great mixture of old and new and kept me moving. Loved it.

User: DMB_Treb
Review:
Seek up was definitely one of the higlights...but BOWA->Tripping Billies had to be one of my favorites for the entire weekend.

WOW. A Solid Show From Start to finish. Some of my Highlights, Grace is gone, nice country-ish ending. BOWA in the encore. That new thingy. WATCHTOWER. I really don't like this song, but everytime the boys paly it...I love it a little more. Fool to think is starting to grow on me. I LOVE THE STONE! And diging a ditch was something I did not expect

Unbelieveable, to see a seek up of that magintude.....

User: halloween21

BEST SHOW IVE BEEN TO YET!!!!I finally got to see so many songs I have longed for. Every song was great even WAYG. Crowd was really into the show. The improv was sweet and totally unexpected as was seek up. Stefan was on fire. His bass solo before watchtower where he teased 7 Nation Army by the White Strips was absolutley amazing. Overall it was unbelievable!!!!!

First time at Spac... AMAZING! The audience and the band had great energy, but the set wasn't amazingly exciting becides TB. Good show, Can't wait for tonite.

User: MikeTuohy

the best dave show i have seen

User: MistreatedLewis
Review:
Really great show! Some of the highlites include one of the greatest Seek Ups I have ever heard (the best song the two night stand), and incredible vocal performance on Watchtower, a surprising and cool encore, a great jam on Grace Is Gone, a rousing Loving Wings, and of course, the much discussed "improv jam." Not quite as good as night 2, but lots of great music.

User: mjbonham
Review:
Of the half dozen shows I've seen this was far and away the best. The energy of the band was absolutely phenomenal. Seek-up jam and a ripping Watchtower were highlights. Great show!!

The show was incredible! Thousands of people letting the band know what they wanted and getting it. Seek Up was an amazing song with great solos by boyd and a kinky keyboard solo courtesy of Butch. Watchtower with the fonzie intro was insane. The crowd flipped out whe he played the bass line for White Stripes "7 Nation Army" The Stone was another high point and everything was just absolutely amazing. The band was on and the crowd was loud. Great Summer Fun.

User: roo97ss

Very nice performance, but only a prelude to the show on the 28th. Had he played watchtower on the 2nd night instead of the first it would have been a spectacular show.

My very first DMB show, this is where the obsession began!

User: ziggyosk
Review:
This show was the frickin jam. highlights were the carter and leroi jam during loving wings. grace is gone was jammed out. Also seekup was off the meat rack. too much and watchtower were FULL of energy. Along with an unsupected BOWA!!! as the encore and Billies. Holy crap, I thought boyd was going to pass out. He freakin almost fell over he was going so nutty! Everyone was full of energy. Me and my dog shane had to travel 3 hours, but it was well worth it. We freakin loved it. AWESOME!!
