what a weekend! shout out to everyone camping in SECTION 16!!! best section fo shizzle.. saturday night was better but still a great show! you cannot beat the view behind the stage. i've been waiting 9 shows for RECENTLY and got it.. though there was no intro :(, LLD was awesome, ANTS MARCHING got the crowd crazy, NANCIES is one i could here at every show, every ounce of stress and worry left my body during the melodic CRY FREEDOM (thnx), dave pleased the chants of the crowd with a crankin TWO STEP, another solid encore with stefan's BUTTERFLY tease and the all-time classic ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER (though i am still bummed they added the utah show cause i was waiting for LAST STOP.. enjoy it utah crowd). 4 shows this summer tour and what a summer it was... ps- the gorge has to get some tshirt scalpers cause i paid $56 for 2 t-shirts! gimme a break!!

I knew 2 of the songs they were going to play. ants and watchtower. grace is gone's ho down section was so sweet and stefan playing the intro was awesome. just an incredible show. ever since i got the tickets and saw ants performed on a DVD i've been hoping to see it live and i loved it. i've never sang so loud in my life or moved around so much. props to the dudes chanting for two step. joy ride and hello again are my favorites of the new songs. can't wait till the next album. watchtower was...well incredible. my girlfriend grinched during the laugh like she always does. an incredible show and probably one of the greatest weekends of my life. thanks DMB.

the last night of the gorge 04 run, had 4th row center tonight, with marcy, who moved up again and i actually sat with mandy again! (ha) but the seats were great! had such a good time this weekend with all the dmb freaks! craig was my tent partner, he was cool as shit! and all the other folks we camped with were GREAT to! tonight was REALLY sweet cause as dave came out to introduce mraz, i was down on the front row and i threw my BOWA poster up on stage right in front of his feet. i had spent the day writing a THANKS on the back of the poster. so he would know that a really appreciate all he does and thanks for bringing BOWA back! he picked it up and talked about it on stage while he introduced mraz. he said something like "i got a thing, you have a thing, and i bet we all have things" so i was really hella stoked to get some recognition for the touring i did this summer! (ha) what a GREAT weekend, i love the gorge and the music was STELLER!!! i got a dmb selist again tonight, 3 in a row all from the gorge, and i got a mraz setlist as well! WHAT A GOOD GOOD TIME i had this weekend! i love DMB!!!

Sorry about Dave losing his voice - still - WOW - I am so glad I came from Texas just to have a shot at Two Step this season!! Cry freedom with the scratchy voice kinda made it powerful in a different way.

I was proud of myself, I called over half the show. Anyway, The band definently brought it tonight, Ants, crazy, nancies, cry freedom, and two step is probably the tightest five songs in a row ive ever heard. Crazy easy is the best new song for sure. Two step was ok, a little short but good non the less. Watchtower was the shit as i was sobering up. Killer fucking weekend!

This was one of the best shows I've been to they played many of the songs I wanted to hear. The bands energy was infectious especially when he played Crush and Grey Street.

User: Dammit
Review:
I was so amazed, at how good the sound was, even being outside with the wind and all that other junk, like retard fans that spent way to much money for a ticket and bitched, you know who you are. I do have to say that I was more pumped for the sat show, even dave mentioned that he was getting a bit horse, indeed, he friggen goes for it day in day out, what a champ, all in all I was so happy to have had the privalage to chill with some of the coolest people, see dave under the shooting stars, planes flying overhead,frizbee throwing, grooven out, and just plain chillin, that I can;t wait for the next show. Dave kills it.

One of the greatest shows I have been to at the Gorge. I have to mention that sitting sixth row with a buddy of mine who is a long time warehouse member also contributed to the unbelievably badassness of this concert. So many good old songs I couldn't believe it. The BTCS opening with PNP and Rapunzel was unbelievable and then Recently, Nancies, and Cry Freedom set me over the edge. Great show. I would have liked a better encore though. I mean when is Watchtower not good, but it's too standard for a Gorge closer. Overall a great end to a great weekend. So glad they played three shows this year instead of last year's two.

After a kick ass tour Dave's vocal chords were as sore as mine from screaming all three nights but that didn't stop him from throwing Watchtower to finish the weekend. Props to those who were with me and got in the "first to get in line" because of the beer garden red ticket. I must add that the girl of my dreams sat next to me for the show and made my night. I loved Grace is Gone with Stefan busting out the slide guitar, Two Step, my new favorite song Hello Again, Joy Ride, and Watchtower encore. Thank You Dave for an unforgettable weekend!

Review:
This was my first experience at the Gorge. Freakin' amazing! Glad they didn't really enforce the no cameras rule. Went to Sat and Sun, thought Sun was much better. Maybe that's because the sound was better where I was Sunday, or maybe it was ending with Stefan's solo and Watchtower... Wish I'd gone Friday too, would have liked to see Warehouse. Lesson learned I guess. Maybe he'll play it in SF. Is anyone worried about Dave's voice? Having trouble getting to those high notes, completely having to improvse the melody in Cry Freedom. Hopefully it was just end-of-summer, or end-of-weekend, but damn!

This was an awesome show. It supposedly wasn't sold out but it seemed like there were more people then last night. I loved seeing rapunzel and two step for the first time. Watchtower was amazing!! This show had the most energy i think. Great weekend to spend in the Gorge.

I stayed for the entire three night stand, and although Friday was my favorite night Sunday had many personal highlights. The Slide guitar intro to grace is gone just blew me away, as did the Watchtower, as it was the first time I had seen it live. I loved all the new songs, and after the third night of Sugar Will I just wanted more, I can't wait for the new album.

User: HukFyn
Review:
Lover Lay Down, a Butterfly Tease, and an awesome Watchtower, made this my 2nd favorite night out of the 3. I only wish the girl I got to hang with on Friday's show was still kicking it with me this night. The boys sounded awesome and put forth a ton of energy. Still not cool with the "WOO" during Crazy/Easy (I think that was the new one they did it on). Ended up finding a pillow near the gate exit and Mike and I played non-stop soccer pillow all the way back to the car. Soccer Pillow is in full effect for next time!!! Great way to end an unbelieveable weekend. Very sad to say goodbye to all my new friends I met at Getty's and the next episode at the Gorge can't happen soon enough. Note to all those who stay at Getty's: The showers don't have hot water so head down the road to take a hot one at the state park, its worth the 5 bucks!!

This was hands down the best concert I have ever been to. GIG, 2 step, DN, and Crush along with the really good new songs made this the best setlist I have seen.

Great show, but Dave's voice was almost gone. Still was amazing. Stayed in the campground that night and met lots of beautiful people (and a few jerks).

User: jdubb201
Review:
first off I want to say thanks to the folks it met this weekend, you made the concert more enjoyable. now for the concert highlights,wow, rapunzel my favorite opener, which set for a high energy night. I loved stefan's intro to gig, joyride the crowd seems to like, lots of energy. crush me and my girls song was beautiful. hello again lots of crowd energy. lover lay down, e-nuff said. sugar will they jammed this one out all weekend sounds great. ants the place went nuts. great nancies, great cry freedom...and then you felt the preasure building, what all three nights no two step, clap, clap, two step and then you hear boyd with that ever so familiar intro, and the whole crowd went nuts. f-ing nuts. suprized to hear RAR for an encore and then the best watchtower I heard live. thanks for a great weekend. I cant wait to get this concert.

User: jglizaze
Review:
best show of the weekend for me, although i wasn't at friday's show. saw the kids during two step. that was pretty cool. he just stood there next to them for about 5 minutes. i have never heard a watchtower as intense as that one. R&R always blows me away, especially the ending.

This is my 7th show this tour (Boston, Hartford, Gorge), and I found it my favorite. With the exception of Dave's hoarse voice, the band was on fire. On another note, did anyone see Dave's girls in the wings stage left during Two Step? Dave looked at them a time or two but kept his "game face" on. A wonderful way to end a stellar weekend.

Night Three at the Gorge, and what can one say? Another stellar performance, and more good times. Bummer about Dave's voice, though. Highlights included PNP>Rapunzel; Recently (Pretty Pretty Girl!); GIG (bluegrass ending); If I Had It All; Hello Again; Nancies; Two Step; R&R; and Watchtower. All was good, though I felt bad for Dave during Cry Freedom, which was clearly too much to ask of his voice at that point. And once again, beautiful beautiful venue, and good people.

User: lansinwd
Review:
The Two Step chanting did not cause them to play the song, but at the same time, if DMB dropped any songs it was because Dave's voice couldnt take anymore, not because of the crowd...Its amazing how much Hello Again has changed since the beginning of the tour...great show...

User: lizzardsauce

Holy shit, this was a great closer. I was waiting for Two Step the whole weekend and just about shit my pants when the finally played it. The rest of the night was killer too. Rapunzel was amazing and Watchtower was a perfect end to a perfect weekend.

A let down (for me) after two amazing shows especially Friday nights show. Friday night 11 out of 10, Saturday night 10 out of 10, and Sunday night was a shorter show and a mellow set-list I'll give it a 7. Look for an explosive last show (in Utah) to make up for the last show of the Gorge.c26 st's 13,14

Review:
we had the worst luck on this day. We decided that we needed more food for the day and the following day, so we drove to the nearest town to buy food. There was also cases of beer for, like, 15 bucks, but we decided that since we had a keg, we didn't need to buy anymore. We got back to the campground and as soon as we opened the back of the car and tapped the keg, Gorge security was right on us. They took our keg and let us be, but there was still a few hours before the gates were gonna open. We smoked a bunch, then rolled 7 spliffs to bring in. Once again, we got into the Gorge and found there was a hole in the pocket the spliffs were in. We lost six of them. It was sad. But good times were had by all, anyway.

There's nothing better than 20,000 people all congregating in the middle of nowhere to spend the weekend together and listen to some Dave! I liked tonight's setlist more than Saturday, but the show was shorter. Still, how can you go wrong with a DMB show?!?!

Although Daves voice was very corse due to doing 3 songs in as many nights, the show was excellent. My first concert and the gorge, and it definitely won't be the last.

It was a great finish to an amazing weekend. However, this was probably the least favorite of the three shows that weekend. I don't know if it was because i was tired, or the fact we had idiots next to us. The opener was awesome, followed by an awesome Two Step and All Along the Watchtower closer and encore. The weekend at the Gorge was a DMB dream.
