One of the best shows i've ever been to (second only to RHCP in Orlando in jan of '05)...starting of with One Sweet World was SWEET! and it just kept getting better...just a great nite

SICK SICK SICK Seats. One of my favorite setlists ever with Jimi, Bayou, Nancies, Grey Street, Stay and Two Step! They were all so intense during American Baby Intro and then slid into Two Step.

Intense show for broadcast... Dave about blows out his voice on American Baby Intro.. guy was doubled over for about 20 seconds... didn't miss a beat... ballsy performance!

Amazing. at first I was upset that I got perfered lawn. I've been with the warehouse since 97, however the show was amazing and I had a great time dancing with everyone in the lawn. It goes in my top 10 ten shows along woth the second night at Fenway.

I agree with a lot of you here; a very predictable set list. Felt like ey need a break.

WPB venue is the best!

Great show - excellant energy. Boyd was in a major groove which kicked the show up to a higher level. Probably did not hurt that it was being broadcasted over AOL. Major upgrade over night 1

My first DMB show in the front row! His voice was scratchy, true. But it was absolutely electrifying nonetheless!

Great setlist and got Break Free for the first time. Dave was hoarse and asked the crowd for help in singing the songs. I felt for him when he tried to sing Sister in the encore. He was struggling with his voice but what an effort from the band. Probably the best Warehouse version I have heard with Dave breaking into "Louie, Louie" during the song. Boyd was at his best. Great weekend here in Florida

A very balanced set list, but Dave's voice was shot. He gave us a great show, but Sister should not of been tried. Being a live broadcast was cool cause I could watch it again when I got home.

Might be the best or second best show i ever seen! My seats were amazing center stage 10 rows back.

Dave answers the question of what "she said..a thousand times" in the intro to Two-Step. THe intensity Dave brings to the table is beyond belief and am fortunate enough to be alive in an era of DMB...thanks God ;)

As always they sounded awesome. Was a little disappointed by the set list. We had heard a lot of those songs in Tampa and would have thought they would have picked some different ones. But all in all it was a great show.

Good show, but not as good as N1. Crowd was less excited than N1.

WOW!!! What an amazing show. You could tell dave's voice was hurting, but he still came through in a big way. Boyd's solo's torn the roof off with his energy.

One of the articles named this the best song of the tour. I must not have been at the same show as them. The croud wasn't even into it until the fifth song (Grey Street). Dave's voice was shot and "Sister" was barely audible during the encore. ABI was certainly the highlight of the night. A good show, but certainly not the best of the tour expecially when you consider the night before was easily twice as good.

Dave NEVER ceases to amaze,impress & thrill me. This is my 3rd year in a row at WPB Sound Advice Amp. Saturday show. Played Sister, made me cry. Took a *virgin* Dave concert goer. She's addicted/hooked now. I WANT FRONT AND CENTER NEXT TIME! Although 3 heads back from the stage ON the Sovereign of the Seas wasnt a bad spot eitehr. The Gorge is next on my list. LOVE DAVE! Say hello sometime-ducatilvr@hotmail.com

awesome show, interesting differences between the 2 shows - only 2 repeat songs (cant stop and idea of you) that I remember. definitely longer groove sections in this show - sensational encore! Felt as if they could've jammed all nite...

User: FpotusSCB

I think I'm going to have to be the odd one out and say that while this show was solid, night 1 was definitely better. I truly believe this set was written for the broadcast audience and if this show hadn't been broadcast, the set would've been different and probably better. OSW is too predictable as an opener and just not what I look for to start a show. JTR was great, but Dave was a little weak on the opening cords. Most of the rest of the show was standard at best. I think going with repeats (Idea of You, Die Trying, and Can't Stop) from night 1 was disappointing. Grey Street, Bayou, Crash, Nancies were all very solid, but all very safely played too - by that I mean just very standard, average versions. Jimi Thing was a big exception - truly great tonight. Like OSW as an opener, Stay is far too predictable as a closer, but at least it wasn't the encore closer. I wish I could get all excited about Two Step, but it was a weak Two Step once they got to the jam - Butch just never took it anywhere and Carter tried to save it, but the damage was done. Don't get me wrong, it was a good, solid show, but it was a safe show and show aimed at the broadcast audience. Moreover, for someone who has been to all 6 of the WPB shows over the past 3 years, the set choice was questionable - some things have been missing for too long. Night 1 had more energy, set was more unique, and the crowd was more into it. Definitely worth it to pick both night's tapes up, though.

Was there for both shows and I must say that this show was superior. These guys always play at an above average level but tonight it was a notch above that.

HOLY COW! What can be said but wow? Probably the second best rendition of Louisiana Bayou (first was last year's with Robert Randolph) I've seen. I like the addition of the trumpet on this tour. It's a small little addition (when not solo-ing) that adds quite a bit to the happiness!

Phenomenal. They took the energy from last night and ran with it. Heavy on Boyd and Carter, plus I had amazing seats. I had no idea Dave's voice was shot until three days later, when I listened to the AOL music recordings.

Great show. Wanted to soothe Dave's voice....kind of lost it but the crowd helped him out. The guys were incerdible and they introduced us to the new stuff...love it!

Yeah, Row 2 Baby, I remember Break Free and how I love that song so much. The outro was so beautiful. The Encore was so awesome to. Sister was so personal with just dave and the white spotlight coming from begind him, then the band took the stage for the first time I heard the AB intro and Two Step together and so passionate.

REAlly reAlly good show this year. I was not dissapointed either night.. It was hot, Daves voice seemed all infested with red tide. It will do that to ya. Spent some time at the beach I suppose since he was in florida. I can't wait till next year. already. Never a dissapointment.

Even though Dave's voice wasn't 100%, he still sang his ass off! His rough voice made for an intense American Baby (intro). Boyd was off the hook. Carter was great as usual. Setlist was good. Such an awesome band!

Show 11 and it was a great one. Way better than last years show for me. Great top hear JTR back. Bayou, Jimi, Nancies, Two Step all had great jams. Too much "Too Much" in West Palm, though- they seem to play it every year. Not complaining though, had a great time. See ya all next year.
