fucking amazing, my first dmb show. everything was great, esp. nancies to warehouse. i have never heard that new part in warehouse mixed in with the salsa part. dave screamed his ass off in the climax of american baby intro, every song was solid, even out of my hands was good.

High energy first half of the show, waned a bit in the second half. I've seen Bartender about 10 times now, and this one had by far the most nuts-out wailing I've ever heard Dave let out in the bridge before the solos start. He turned all kinds of red. Hopefully it will translate well in some of the pulls. ABIntro was also spectacular, but Everybody Wake Up wasn't anything special as a debut. Not much different from the album version. The jam at the end of Louisiana Bayou, however, just gets more solid and thunderous each time.

I think the show was awesome, it was my third show this summer, the second I've seen in Dallas. This show was better than the Dallas show in 2003. It seemed like the crowd was really really into it and the boys were feeding off of us. I had an amazing time the Dreamgirl intro was so beautiful...I was confused at first as to which song they were playing because I have never heard that intro but it was AMAZING. Bartender - phenominal and the American Baby intro was great. Dave was yelling...had veins popping out of his neck and head. Ahh what a great night. After each show I am always reminded why I have so much money invested in this band because the FUCKING ROCK!!!!

A little dissapointed in Rapunzel as a closer - other than that, an INCREDIBLE show - probably the best in Dallas in a while. The octave changes in the American Baby intro just keep getting higher and wilder. What is he doing to keep his voice that capable??!! If you are lucky enough to hear the American Baby Intro this concert season, prepare yourself for something unmatched!!

It really felt like the boys were feeling it tonight. They played a lot of the old classics that I was hoping for...Bartender was unbelievable and so was Dancing Nancies into Warehouse... but they also showed some new jams with the Stand Up songs. Everybody Wake Up in particular really jammed out in the end w/ Boyd playing a sweet ass harmonic riff on the violin like a mini guitar towards the end. It was my third show of the tour and I think it was the best performance the band had...and the first two had Robert Randolph and Trey come out!!

Infamous "RED DOG" show.....It all had to do with being in the bar before the show. Was with friends that had never been to a DMB show before. The have not been to another. What is wrong with them? Perfect cap on a DMB summer.

Didn\'t think I was going to see them this year, but a friend came through, bought me a ticket and took me on a roadtrip to Dallas. I had a great night in what were the best seats I\'d ever had at the time. She bought me a single seat reserved because she knew I was a big fan, while she and friends sat on lawn. Great show. Not a fan of the Dreamgirl into Hunger mid set, but Grey Street was off the hook. Carter! Loved ABI too. Got chills just now thinking about it again.

Sweet show American Baby Intro was incredible

The show was absolutely killer! I'm worn out from dancing. (Hint: If you plan to dance never wear leather sandals...) I have only about 30% of my voice left. I couldn't smell more like cigarettes... even if I smoked. I had a frickin' AWESOME time... And what a great line-up of songs!

The first half of the show was amazing. Louisiana Bayou is now in my top 5 favorite songs to hear live. I've never seen Boyd so all over the stage as he was during LB tonight. Just incredible. Dave's wailing on Bartendar and AB Inro were also major highlights, and now matter what, it's always awesome to hear Ants Marching. I don't understand OOMH. Just don't get it. It takes the mood down so much and is just so boring. It was the only time all night the crowd was anything but energized. I understand they need to slow it down sometimes, but that song is just a throw-away. Still not sure why they play it live. Other than that, there weren't any complaints. I'm not a huge fan of YMDT, but they made up for it with a great PNP-Rapunzel closer. I also really liked Everybody Wake Up-- I thought the ending jam was pretty cool. Bottom line-- the Stand Up songs are so-so on the album, but the band has really put a lot of effort into making them tour-worthy. As a matter of fact, Bayou and AB Intro were the highlights of the night-- you could never say that about songs from Everyday. No matter the setlist or venue, they always put on a show. I rank this one right with the others I've seen-- excellent.

Best show of the Texas tour. I thought for sure that I would go my whole life without hearing Nancies into Warehouse. I was indeed wrong. Everyday as the opener got the crowd going. Grey Street was amazing as always. I was really surprised to hear Out of My Hands. Noone else seemed excited about the live Wake Up debut. Lots of political songs, can't help but think that the DMB was talking to GW. It was great to hear Ants and the Rapunzel closer was jamming.

I thought that the energy from this show was the best of any show I have been to. The encore kinda left me wanting more

User: jermtheworm

Great show with lots of energy. High light of the night for me was Everyday opening and Granny. The band really seemed to feed off the crowd tonight, it was awesome.

Great show! My friends and I tie-dyed shirts for this one. Not to mention an old hippie asked us to trip acid in the parking lot before the show. And my brother puked all over the lawn and had to leave before the encore. But overall a GREAT show.

Third show of the year -- what a summer!

Set list -- diverse--good stuff.

Dream Girl -- unbelieveable live -- all 3 shows this summer and I almost want it to be mandatory in the future...but that wouldn't be fun now would it.

Great Show. Lousiana Bayou was awesome.

User: superquinn
Review:
What a great show...started off with a little Everyday. And then I swear I got chills when he stopped and thanked the state of Texas for "being the first to stand up for their neighbors in Lousiana"...AWESOME...he is a class act...highlights for me= Lousiana Bayou, much better than on the CD, the jam at the end was incredible, Boyd was feeling it. Dancing Nancies awesome as always. American Baby Intro, blew me away...good stuff. Lowlights= Only the girl two rows in front of me who got REALLY sick from the combo of heat and alcohol...she was an entertaining drunk happy person at the beginning of the night, then it got ugly. Well, overall great show, driving to Houston on Monday, see you guys there.

great show... LA Bayou, Bartender, Hunger, Nancies > Warehouse, AB Intro, Ants and everytime Boyd cut loose were the highlights by far... YMDT subdued a rowdy crowd to the point that a rousing PNP > Rapunzel couldn't bring back the earlier energy... the outro to the debuted Everybody Wake Up was really killer, even though the main song was only average... all in all a great high-energy show at a less than adequate facility...

Holy crap! It was awesome! My third show and each one keeps getting progressively better. Dave made serveral referrences to the Katrina victims and seemed to be very serious and driven. Hearing Everybody Wake Up was not really a surprise considering all that has happened in the past week, Dave performed it from the heart I thought. The American Baby Intro was intense. Dave seemed pissed! Warehouse was amazing, and just when I thought that was the highlight, they played Antsmarching and the crowd in our area was going crazy for it. Carter always gives me a \"Holy Crap!\" moment, and at this concert it was during You Might Die Trying. Carter is such an incredible drummmer and he never disappoints. It was funny when they came out to do their encore and Carter started beating his bass drum along with the beat of the crowd. Next show is Monday night and me and my wife will be there. Can't wait!
