What a power set! Seriously should be a live trax release. Encore with Staircase infused Watchtower highlighted an already amazing evening!

My husbands second DMB show, first with me, our first concert together, we had just met, it was his birthday. We are now four years married. It was a great night just because of that. But as always the band brought it. Tim was great.

WOW. THE best show I've been to! The band was on stage for 3 hours- highlights include a Dave solo opener rye whiskey, Seven, and the other new songs; a Carter/Coffin drum and flute dual solo, Tim and Coffin battling, and an EXPLOSIVE Watchtower ending. The whole setlist was solid and the band played with an energy I have never seen!

Traveled from Canada.. 3AM Wakeup!! Worth every f'n second of agony. This was something like my 20th show and I'm not quite sure I can think of a better show I've seen. This is the tightest they've ever been. 2 words Dreaming Fuckin Tree!!!!!!

My 5th show and possibly the best (Mile High was amazing). i couldn't of asked for a better set list personally and all the new stuff was awesome -- better than i thought they would be. DMB gets better and better i was so hiiiigh

Solid show. There was no soundcheck done earlier because of the heat, so Dave used Rye Whiskey as the soundcheck - signaling the soundboard to turn his volume up, etc. Then breaking into Tripping Billies and never slowing down from there. Also seemed like there were more people here for this show than the previous 2 years...

The performace was great, but the crowd didn't have a lot of energy.

Show number 15 and I may have to take a break for a while after a set like that. I'd still consider myself a relatively new fan that came into the DMB world when Busted Stuff was released and this show was maybe the closest thing to the pre-Everday sets we'll get in this day an age. The band brought absolute heat from start to close.

The solo Dave opener was a pleasant twist and the Billies follow up came out of nowhere. I like that after so many years of exile, The Dreaming Tree has become a semi-regular extended jam on the past couple tours. Leroi will always be in the hearts of every fan, but they could not have found a better hired gun to replace him than Coffin. The solos he traded with Tim and Rashawn on Crush and Grey Street, respectively, were out of this world. And the Watchtower close with the Stairway interpolation was a perfectly intense way to end an evening packed with fan-favorite heavy hitters.

I hadn't been to a show in 4 years, so I was really looking forward to last night. Every song was just great. The extended So Damn Lucky was AMAZING. And Jeff Coffin played extremely well; I think in some ways he has taken DMB to the next level.

A great, great show. And remember, drink your "LIQUID"! :-)

WOW. What a setlist and the performance of each song was rock solid. This would be a great selection for a live trax. I am still in awe of this band. On to VEGAS.

WOW!! That was a GREAT show! Old School DMB feel, a TON of energy and the new stuff rocked. The Tim and Jeff dual was crazy. I will have to say that out of the 7 shows I have been to, that one was the Best.

Awesome night, won front row tickets and a meet and greet with Dave, I'm not usually excited about Phoenix shows, crowd not too good, but this show will be special to me because I was practically touching the stage!

wow. dave came out and sang an acoustic rye wisky to kick off the show. i was like what. then all of a sudden tripping billies came on. i was like double what. pnp into rapunzel was awsome. i dont think there was a downside in the show. highlights were billies, rapunzel, sdl, spaceman, seven, crush,and watchtower

Didn't seem like the boys had it completely together in the beginning. Strong but not the best I've seen, not as much jamming as usual and the crowd was definitely craving more. Jeff had an amazing solo to pick everything up and the show took a 180. Can't complain though, good time for sure!

DMB never dissapoints! Sraight up 3 hour jam session, loved it! First time I sat lawn for DMB, and I wasn't too impressed with the sound from back there but as for DMB's performance, it was top notch. See ya in San Diego in September!

Great show! I loved Dave playing the opener Rye Whisky and then the band opening with Tripping Billies. Great way to get the crowd into it from the begining. I loved the new songs, and they seemed to be having fun playing them. Energy was good throughout the show. Always leaves me wanting more.

They started earlier than usual. So I missed rye whiskey. Was too pleased with the early start since I bust my ass for all of the home shows for my friends. Other than that. It was amazing.

loved the show, but was irritated with the idiots behind me rolling beer bottles down to the security guard at the 100's!

Rye Whiskey Dave solo opener and then the band came out for an amazing Billies. and the energy didn't stop there. there was literally not one downer moment this whole show. i even enjoyed Everyday. i can't even think of any highlights because the whole fucking thing was a highlight. show #6 for me and definitely the best one. can't wait for vegas!
