It was awesome to see dmb. I exploded when they announced them. I knew when they were coming on and i was ready for it. As for the performance, OSW was my call for the first song, and i was right. But it seemed like Dave was a little out of it, i actually think he was high. I dont know if thats fair to say but it really did seem like it. He started getting into it during Too Much but that was the last song. I know the set list states 5 songs including still water and anyone seen the bridge, but in reality it was only 3 songs and it went way to fast. I was expecting another song. But al in all, i sat dead center, 13 rows from the stage and i didnt pay a dime. So i cant complain. It just seemed like Dave was out of it. Anybody agree?

Dave said his guitar "exploded" during one sweet world. All i know is that everyone was more excited about DMB than Bon Jovi and definitely more excited for DMB than Kanye

It was a great day, but the audio kind of sucked where i was sitting. It would have been great to see them play at nigh, but still a good show.

it was nice to see dmb, but this set went way to quickly. there certainly were not five songs played, and i don't think you could classify the intro to ddtw as still water. all in all, nice to see them again. just makes me more excited to see them in hartford in a few weeks.

Great selection especially an energetic Don't Drink The Water, just wish they could've played longer.

For the brief time DMB took the stage between less-worthy pop bands, they picked the perfect songs for an environmental festival. Particularly the opener, "One Sweet World." Gotta show love for the mother earth.

dave sang his head off, that's for sure. Song selection obvious - not my favorite but didn't expect much with such a short set and diverse crowd. but the crowd went absolutely nuts for them!.

Great time. First DMB show of the summer, and was what I expected in terms of set list. The huge highlight of the day was Bon Jovi - watta showman!!

Good improvisation on Dave's part-- playing the second half of One Sweet World without a guitar. But I've had too much of Too Much in these settings.

Had a great time Highlights - DMB although it seemed like it was over too quickly. I'd been a the stadium since around 3.00, and it was first time in the day - where all the stadium rose to welcome an act Akron- never seen them before, really got the crowd pumped, especially when the lead singer jumped into the crowd. Roger waters - never dull, nice mix of DSoM and the Wall- something from Amused to Death would have been great Alicia Keys- great voice Ludacris - fun Keith Urban- had no expectations, turned out he's good Average Police - apart from sting , the band looked like they didn't want to be there John Mayer- dull Bon Jovi - as expected Melissa Etheridge - ok Disappointments S Pumkins - As they were playing their first song, I wondered if they had ever played together as a band before. The blatant plug for their new album -Sod off

Band sounded great, but as everyone has said, the set was way too short. Really glad they included DDtW, though, and the topical theme songs were a good choice by the band for the day. They most definitely did not play Still Water, just a long intro (no vocals) to DDtW.

I went to the entire show to see DMB. He only played three songs, but I'm glad I went.

Great set by the boys but it went way too fast.

Pretty good show. Got to see a lot of artists i normally wouldn't pay to see and the Boys were great even if i have heard those songs many times before. Can't wait for August & the Tweeter Center. Wish they'd get to play a full show at Giants Stadium cuz they can sell that place out.

Live Earth was truly an unbeliveable event. I considered it the 'Woodstock' of the 21st Century.

It was the closest I've ever been to Dave to date. Sort of bummed with the setlist except for "Don't Drink the Water" - sort of made sense.

I was sort of hoping Dave would have been a bit more vocal politically as so many other artists had been that day/night.
