Not many bands are worth standing in the remains of a tropical storm. DMB is one of the exceptions. Good show.

User: Aaron1229

Sitting dead center of the back of the pavilion soaked from the rain, with tornado watches and warnings with lightening starting to flash. I wondered what I was doing there. Then the boys took the stage and they did not disappoint. (And I remebered why I was there)A few notes: Dave had very happy feet tonigt. During seek up after Dave's lyric scramble he made up a lyric about sometimes you get tongue tied. Also during Steady As We Go, it appeared as through he had the lyrics on the ground in front of him. Should be a great show Monday :-)

Being at any DMB show is good, and there has to be a worst show, so this one takes the cake. Seek Up was unbelievable, and Loving Wings was a rare treat, but the overall lack of energy and having DG as the opener and Stand Up as the set closer make this show somewhat mediocre.

Not as much energy as I hoped for but a great show just the same.

My first Dave show, and it was everything I could have expected. I ended up by no one I knew on the lawn, because I had to buy a lawn ticket at the last minute, while the guys I went with were tenth row, but it was still great. It rained for hours, but the band was great, especially on Seek Up, despite Dave screwing up the lyrics. I plan on going to both shows at Deer Creek next year, and as many as I can in the future.

Good Rapunzel and DDTW, the new songs were pretty good live, especially YMDT and Dreamgirl, which made a good opener. Tripping Billies was an awesome closer. Sat in the lawn, 4 rows back from the venue, where people were mudsliding, and it was a giant party out there, too much fun ;-)

with Jeff and it rained quite a bit!

User: davefan984

After non-stop down-pour from that tropical storm throughout the whole night the concert was definitly worth it to my friends and I. After 28 shows Loving Wings, Seek Up into YMDT was definitly the highlight. Best Version of Seek Up I have heard live. This show is a keeper to download. I have not heard 6-7 to 6-10 shows, but I think this was the best show yet! Thanks to tapers for their hard work.

The show was good.... not the best but still pretty damn good. Loved the Billies ending but I think the story was the hour long down pour that left no one in the lawn dry. Glad I was able to attend the Monday show with some decent weather.

boyd was feeling alive, he played an outstanding show. DMB was in a different type of mood, i think maybe the 4 hour storm had something to do with it.

Hey guys the show was ok. Wasn't impressed by the setlist although Billies is always a good close.

User: dmband42685
Review:
pretty good concert...hit the decade mark with this show. dreamgirl is a good opener. I really do like the opener for it. DDTW...wow i really didnt realise how much i like this song. Rapunzel was amazing. Loving wings is back. I was happy to hear it again. Seek Up into Die Trying was the high for me. Seek Up was awesome and was better than the version i heard last year at alpine. The closing song left alot to be desired. I just dont like stand up as a closer. Tripping Billies as always a good encore and it was the first time ive heard stolen away. Overall good show but second night made the weekend.

WARNING TO ANTS: COME TO THIS VENUE FROM 69, NOT FROM THE WEST, YOU WILL WAIT FOR 2 HOURS AS WE DID AND MISS SOME OF THE SHOW. That being said, what a high energy show. Dave was dancing up a storm out there. The band seems to be having a lot more fun this tour and if that is the price to pay for having SU (which I do not consider to be a price at all b/c I like the new album) then so be it. Anyway, the Seek Up segue into YMDT was amazing, definitely worth the download peeps. Dave really got moving during the jam for YMDT, never have seen him go that crazy before. Loved the new and improved SU with less "stand ups" and more Carter Beauford on the drums!!! BaYOU kicked ass as per usual. Dave sat down for Stolen Away which I thought was kinda strange, but that song sounded sooooo sexy. Roi's sax live on that one is unbelievable. This is a very intimate venue BTW, it really feels like you are close to the band. I was at Tinley Park a while back and that seemes like one of the old stadium shows compared to this place. P.S. This is Butch's tour to shine, why don't they make him an official member of the band already!?!?!?

About 20 minutes of Seek Up, leading into Die Trying was the highlight for me. Dave flubbed the words to Seek Up a couple of times. The band lauged at him and then everyone took a solo. It reminded me as to what makes this band so great. The new songs are great live. My Warehouse seats sucked, as ususal, but I got to upgrade to Section C Row T when my wife got hit in the back with mud by some moron on the lawn. Thanks for taking one for the team, honey!

Overall--a great show. Opening up with Dreamgirl rocked...the boys' vocals shined through. DDTW had high energy...great jam on Rapunzel. Very mellow middle section to the show, but ended the night on high note with Great Light, WWYS, and Tripping Billies. After three hours of getting soaked by storm after storm, DMB made it all worth it!!!!

What a great show after a good two hours of raining as soon as Dave and the boys got on stage it seemed the rain really tapered off. All We really have to say is this is my fourth year straight going to deer creek and by far the best Dave show yet. Can't think of one great highlight since the whole show was Awesome..... Oh my god they are playing #36 w/ everday ;)

awesome show, worth the price of getting poured on for hours in the lawn. highlights were the extended jam on seek up, which is always fun to hear live. the jams on you might die trying and louisiana bayou made them live classics, and dave was dancing like crazy. ended on a high note with tripping billies. overall a great time.

dreamgirl opener awesome. loving wings awesome. 20 minute seek up omg so intense. you might die trying. this song is an instant live classic in my opinion. stolen away honestly i could do without but dont get me wrong. contact me @yahoo if we met or you want additional show info.

My 8th show, definitely one of the best. Dreamgirl: was a surprise opener but not bad. DDTW: very fitting song considering it poured down rain for about 3 hours...very solid version. PNP>Rapunzel: this rocked the house, kept the energy flowing. Crash: solid. Everyday: very good version, boyd had a nice long solo on this one. Hunger: i really liked this song live, you can tell the band enjoys playing it. Loving wings: definitely the big surprise of the night. WAYG: standard. Seek up: always good to get treated with seek up, dave mixed up some lyrics but it was cool, after boyd's solo i figured on a little solo by leroi but he left the stage and butch took over, I dont know if he broke a reed or it was planned for butch to solo. Die trying: very long solid ending jam. WWYS: standard. Bayou: instant live classic in my opinion. Steady: . Stand up: not my favorite on the new cd but it translated well live. Stolen away: dave played this one sitting in a chair, i really dont know why but it was good. Billies: good way to end the night. Overall one kick ass, high energy show. I cant wait till tomorrow!

My eighth show as well. i thought it was a really great show. First one of the year for me and although there wasn't a minute of the show i wasn't up to my ankles in mud, it was well worth it. I'm not a huge fan of WAYG, but overall the energy of the band was great. and i was very pleased to see leroi's eyes without the sunglasses. i know he has stagefright and that is why he is always wearing them, so it was pretty cool to know that he was comfortable here in indy.

My wife and I were married the day before this show. We actually sent DMB a letter inviting them to our wedding (they were playing at Bonnaroo, and they had to drive past the town we were being married in; it was worth a try!) and letting them know our first song as a married couple would be "Loving Wings". We were hoping they would accept our invitation and play "Loving Wings" for our first dance. We also stated that we would be in the audience for the 2 shows in Indy. Sad to say they didn't make our wedding, but DMB did play Loving Wings for this show. It was the only time they played it in 2005.
Thanks guys! We had our second "first" dance in the lawn...wearing ponchos!

Dreamgirl came on... and the rain went away and Dave Blew us away! Great little Drum Solo from Carter on Hello Again, and then Finished with Stand Up! which was awesome to here of new album! came back finished with a great version of Tripping Billies! I was very impressed and looking forward to next DMB SHOW!

Great Show. When Dave brought a chair out for Stolen Away, I thought he pulled a groin muscle from dancing around like a maniac. But I'm pretty sure he put a piece of paper (sheet music) down by his feet. I think the band did a great job of entertaining a soaking wet crowd.

this was a good way to start off the two night stand- the intro into dont drink the water was cool- the seek up ----> die trying was great - both songs were played really really well- i was happy to hear loving wings - the hello again was really good - carter was really on tonight- hello again loving wings and die tryin especially- bayou and stand up were both played really well too- dave was doin some crazy dance during stand up- overall really a good show- but not even close to night 2

Yes, the set list was a little mellow in spots, but from where I was sitting in the pavillion, the energy level was high throughout the entire show. Every song was played very well, with some of the standouts being Seek Up going right into Die Trying, a really tight Rapunzel, a rare Loving Wings, and a very energetic Tripping Billies to close. All of the Stand Up songs sounded great, especially Dreamgirl and Bayou. It hurt seeing Typical on the set list and not getting it, but that's okay, there's always next time! DMB are #1!

for anyone saying that the shows from this tour sound like crap, i would love to punch them in the face. This was my 30th show, and i have never heard them sound so good. i had gotten a copy of 6/1/05 the friday before the show, so i got to hear some of the new songs live before seeing them first. They sound amazing, and they are playing with so much energy. To make a long story short, they are playing better than ever.

It was awesome. My boyfriend and I had seats in section D. The warehouse ladies came around and were up grading. We were lucky enough to get front row dead center. The only down fall was that I didnt get drumsticks. That was all I wanted when we got moved up. The person next to me got them. :( :( IT WAS AN AWESOME SHOW!!!

Aftermath of Tropical storm Arlene - soaked to bone for an hour & a half before it let up. Okay show - a "chick band" set list aside from an awesome version of seek up w/jazzy Butch piano solo. Excessive breaks betw songs just like 1st show in 2004. The 2 Indy shows have been the lowest energy of the 7 I've seen.

Tonight was just a great big party w/people dancing in the rain that lasted for 2 hours and sing'n to sublime before the band came out. The setlist was pretty good, even though, it didn't seem like the songs gelled with each other. "SU" into "YMDT" was freaking awesome, and possibly the best version of "SU" I've ever heard. "Stolen Away" was a pleasant surprise also. The band were definitely at there best on both nights (especially on Monday).
