Show was good but didnt come close to saturdays show. The band rocked Watchtower, Rapunzel and Bartender but there were a few dull moments. Overall the weekend was aweseome and looking forward to the winter tour. Where he should weed out some of the standup songs and only rock the greats.

#34!!!!! all i could do during this song was wipe the tears from my eyes. truly amazing to behold. rapunzel was great, as was watchtower and the what you are intro. i like where they're heading with dreamgirl's mode change jam, but carter is capable of much more, which makes the whole thing dull in the end. aside from that and my other stand up beefs, this was a killer weekend.

Pretty mellow show. Lover Lay Down was good to hear tonight.

Oh. My. God. PERFECT SHOW! I kinda wish I had my section 03 seats for this show instead of the previous night, but hell, I got to be there at all so it was amazing. BEST ENCORE EVER: Hunger into What You Are! The intro to WYA was so evil and intense, I nearly lost my sanity. Louisiana Bayou's jam is getting much more solid and rocking as the tour goes on. And who can possibly forget getting to hear #34?! Whatever sparked in the band's mind to resurrect this gem, I don't know, but I'm sure as hell glad I got to be there to witness it! Also highlights were Lover Lay Down, Dave's amazing footwork during Rapunzel, and a killer Hello Again. Lastly, I swear Butch teased American Baby Intro before Steady As We Go!

Mellow and much more subdued from the previous night from what I heard but still a great DMB show.

I thought it was absolutely incredible. especially because he played.......yes ladies and gents.....#34!! I have to say that there werent enough of us dave fans for it to be fully appreciated, most people were like ugh another instrumental. That was the highlight of the show, there was a great solo from Stefan, but i'd have to say the song selection of the night before was even better.

Lover Lay Down and What You Are were definate high lights. I just wish the drunk as hell chicks behind me would have shut up and quit yelling for dave to play Tripping Billies. Oh yeah, all three Florida shows, and not one new cover, what the hell? Dave needs to start treating the FL shows as if it was a 3 night stand, b/c there are a lot of people who go to all three, and when I kept hearing the same songs over again from Tampa, I was let down. Overall, I'd say this show was pretty good, but definatly not their best, and most of it was just too typical with no suprise

THE STONE and an awesome Rapunzel. Plus ridiculous intros to What You Are and Watchtower.

User: dmbnut36
Review:
The show was great, except that most of the songs were repeats from Tampa. I was hopeing for Say Goodbye, but Lover Lay Down was exceptional. I heard WYA as a closer in 2002 and was dissapointed. I absolutely love it now, and was blown away by Dave's energy on that song and nearly every other. Great show and even better crowd, which pumped the band up so much. It was a great end to an awesome weekend.

Sundays show was more sedate than Saturdays show. Maybe I was just to beat up from Saturday but setlist was not one of my favorite. But as I like to say "even a bad DMB show is still a great show."

My 21st show!! And any show with The Stone in it.....is good enough for me! Wow....what fun!

Well this was my second DMB show. I went to the first west palm show; I liked the first show better because they played more songs i liked however the second show was great too! The band was really pumped!!! I really like hearing Everday and #36 to start. It got the crowd signing. Really suprised ro hear DreamGirl,Hunger for the Great Light, and Bayou again, but they still rocked the second time around especially Hunger for the great light! What would you say was really cool live too. Oh and as far as lover lay down... I loved it!!! Besides the radio songs I would have to say this is the first song i really liked, plus my good friend has been to seven shows and that was the first time he heard it live, so it was special :). Never a big fan for watchtower until hearing it live... the crowd was really into it. Overall the shows were great and I am looking forward to seeing them live again!

For the first time in a long time, it seems like I saw a two night stop and there wasn't a clearly "better" show. I think last night's show had a solid run after the first few songs all through the end of the show. Tonight was a little choppier, but with some better songs, so a draw I guess. Highlights tonight were a hugely powerful Bartender, Carter taunting us in the Hello Again solo, another awesome Bayou, a solid Rapunzel, and an incredible intro to WYA. Of course, #34 was the highlight of highlights...just so perfect...it doesn't even need words it feels so good. Everyone was so respectful during it too, which was very nice to see. First time seeing Steady As We Go, Stolen Away and OOMH, and all of those came across well. In fact, Steady is an entirely different song live than it is on the album. Two complaints, though, one is again that Dreamgirl really doesn't need to be jammed out. The other goes to the weekend as a whole...a lot of repeats in West Palm this year, very disappointing, how about some BOWA, LIOG, #41, Typical, etc instead of yet another WWYS, Jimi, Stone...But still, a great weekend, tons of energy tonight, espeically Dave in between songs, Carter continues to amaze, and here's hoping Alpine is even better!

Sweet show, I felt the crowd was better tonight than on Saturday. Better setlist I felt too, despite what everyone else says. The Stone, WWYS, Watchtower, Bartender and a freakin unreal Rapunzel with some mad Dave dancing were the highlights. My first time hearing Lover Lay Down and of course #34 (awesome!) I feel obligated to point out how incredible the Stand Up songs are live (including both Stand Up and Bayou, both of which I dread on the album). What You Are as a closer was unexpected but very cool, considering they played Hunger For The Great Light as the first encore song, which is more upbeat than they usually start their encores (and they had just played it the night before), so everyone was stoked after that. An awesome weekend, see everybody at Red Rocks for all 3 nights!

Like I said in my 7/16(WPB 1) post I can't decide which night I liked better. This was my 10th show and I'll say this much, they get better and better every time out. At times, I was just in awe at how amazing they sound. Tightest band on Earth! Leroi and Boyd were on fire tonight. Watchtower was nice to hear, Hello Again just rocks. Thanks DMB.

Great show! Especially from the 2nd row which was a 1st for me. #34 was amazing and bartender was great. Hello Again might be one of my new favorite live songs. Oh yeah - I CAUGHT DAVE'S GUITAR PICK!!!!!!

Ok great show again... I feel the setlist was not as good as last night but still a great vibe. Nice talkin to my new friends from Tampa we sat next to and the dudes right in front who were recording the show! Bartender and Lover Lay Down were sweet and Watchtower just might never get old live! And traffic was much better.....I learned for last nights mistakes. See ya in Nashville

This was my first Dave show. My life has never been the same.

User: unclax222
Review:
WOW!!!! What a concert! Although there weren't as many in the crowd the second night, dave still rocked the house. The setlist was so incredible, and the jams were insane. The Bayou jam is so sweet, boyd gets the energy going and the house definitly feeds off of him. The stone was excellent, and of course watchtower. Hunger for the great light is incredible live. and oh yea # 34...rediculous! The night was amazing.
