It was the first DMB show that I had ever been to. Needless to say I was not dissapointed. I loved the old songs that they did. And Rashawn guesting on almost all of the songs made the concert spectacular.

Once again, Dave goes and finds a better setup than last year. The lights were great. The sound seemed a bit high towards the end but overall, the show was a great way to start off the 06' tour. Raven...?

First day at my internship in St. Louis -- I was so worried I wouldn't catch a DMB show that summer, only to find out my colleagues had an extra ticket!

Incredible. Rashawn Ross was a pleasant suprise, he added a lot of depth to the the songs, and a killer solo on "Jimi." There was some notable DaveSpeak, as well.

Great set! What a feeling. Granny opener- JTR- smooth rider! Just a few great songs. What a vibe!

Incredible show. The setlist was the best I've seen so far, and "Sister" was a nice touch to begin the encore. I've always wanted to hear Proudest Monkey and Satellite in concert and here I got them both. The lighting was a little off compared to past shows but the background is always good.

So amazing... G. Love was awesome. The setlist was, as expected, incredible. If there hadn't been an enormous man right in front of me, this would easily top most of the shows I've seen!!

This show was sick. Dave knew what we wanted to hear. He played all good old songs. Rapunzel, an amazing Jimi Thing, Granny, Grace is Gone, and Grey Street to name a few... and for his encore he played a sick Louisiana Bayou in which Boyd jammed out with Butch Taylor to lay down a more bluegrass edge. All in all it was a great time with some great tunes!

The show was amazing to say the least. They pulled Proudest Monkey, Raven, and Grace is Gone out of the clear blue. Dave's solo encore was a bit suprising.

as i walked into the venue i had a special feeling about this one. Granny starting off the night was really good and surprised me. Grey Street and OSW were also very good. When he pulled out the 12 string again i was thinking alright now it's time for JTR(had been waiting to hear it forever)...but i will forever remember that moment when he went into Raven. It was amazing hearing that. Crash and HFTGL were pretty normal. It got some of the ppl who didnt listen to Busted Stuff back into it. PNP>Rapunzel was amazing. I really do love this song everytime i hear it. SAWG was good but really cut alot of the energy off from Rapunzel. This is where the concert went to a whole new level. During Smooth Rider Dave picked up some sun glasses and played the rest of the song with sunglasses on...he really went crazy with the outro and really made the best of one of the few stand up songs i like. JTR prolly made my night b/c I had waited so long to hear it. The band played it perfectly. I was about to cry at the end. Grace is Gone was welcomed considering i hadnt heard it in so long. The Jimi Thing was prolly the best ive ever heard...yea that is including central park. The solos that butch, roi, and ross had on this song were amazing...esp. the ross one. Then there was the Proudest Monkey which surprised me like none other. Thank god for it b/c it made the night almost complete. The key word there is almost...the song that made it complete was def. Pig. Ive been goin to concerts for 4 years now and Pig was the one song i had wanted to hear and tonight i got the wish. The closer was okay...i was kind of wanting a Stay. Hearing the Sister song was amazing and Dave came out before hand and talked about the origins of the song with respect to his sister. Bayou was cool as usual. Overall I loved this set and i esp. loved what ross brings to the stage when hes up there.

Best show for me easy. This was my 15th show and it takes the cake, even better than Soldier Field shows in 2001. Awesome setlist, my first Raven and Proudest Monkey. PM is one of my favs, Dave messsed up or changed the words on the second verse but it was still cool I would like to hear it again to pick up everything he said. Very laid back and groovy night. HFTGL was the only "hard" tune. I preferred this style to a night with Watchtower, DDTW, and HFTGL. Great way to kick of the tour. See you on Friday and Saturday in Noblesville.

OH MY GOD WHAT A SET LIST!!!!! that has got to be one of the most out there set lists i have ever seen, i mean proudest monkey into satellite!!!! RAVEN!!!! and not to mention the return of granny! all i have to say is wow on the set up, they didn't hold anything back this year and i can't wait for deer creek and alpine this year. the only bad thing was there were a few guys behind me who would not stop yelling "HALLOWEEN" and they wouldn't shut up during dave's story before sister (which was very nice) but all in all a great first show!

This was the first DMB concert I'd ever been to, and it did not disappoint. My highlights were Smooth Rider, Everyday/#36, JTR, and the solo section of Jimi Thing. This new guy, Ross, on the trumpet blew me away. I can't wait to hear him on the next album. The band was in incredible form and we all managed to avoid a thunderstorm that seemed only to affect the areas right around concert thanks to the incredible power of Dave's presence.
