Such a great show, we chanted Halloween for a long time, and he came through. I nearly caught a drumstick in row 22. Epic night.

LIOG, Dreaming Tree and Proudest were great! LITHOG is becoming a great song with an awesome outro tonight.

But the concert was obviously made by the Too Much tease into Halloween. I thought for sure we were getting Too Much then an Ants Marching closer but that Halloween closer made the show amazing!

Hometown show. The crowds in Kansas City are almost always lackluster unfortunately. The place wasn't even close to sold out. The band was solid as expected, but seemed less energetic. I know that this band fuels itself off of the crowd, and this crowd was typical KC. I do not expect DMB will return to Sprint Center anytime soon.
That being said, it was great to have so many friends and family to share a show with. Many 'first timers'.


Take over Dreaming Tree Rashawn.

My fifth DMB show and the first I did not plan to attend. But, I won two 200 level tickets (from Price Chopper of all places) the day of the show!!

Personal firsts: PNP-->Rapunzel, Proudest Monkey, Lie In (w/great jam), Billies (FINALLY!)

New songs sounded great all around!

Solid classics: Dreaming Tree, Crush (great jam), Crash, SMTS

Specials: Gravedigger feat. Willie Nelson was quite cool. Halloween Encore was of course mind blowing with the deterioration out of Too Much!

Throwaways: YMDT - still not a big fan, but only one in this set in my book.

Overall was good to see band having a great time near the end of the tour, great energy, Carter and Boyd both had GREAT nights. Throughout the show I felt this night was on the edge of greatness, then encore sealed the deal. Picked up a nice event specific poster, another first for me. All in all, that adds up to MY first 5 star show without a doubt! (Though likely a 4.5 "by the numbers")

My 20th show, and my 10 year anniversary with this band. By far the best, and I've seen them all over the United States, nice to have my favorite show right here in my hometown.

Show number 20 for me and the boys definitely brought their A-game! I Loved getting to see Willie Nelson finally, and for all the fans I've heard bashing "Williedigger", the KC crowd was sure appreciative of it! (and rightfully so!) Song highlights were Dreaming Tree, Lie in our graves, LITHOG, Gravedigger and of course.. Hallowewen. Oh did I mention the Coffin/Tim Crush duel? This was one you had to see in person to fully appreciate; with Coffin grabbing something that looked like a bottle of spray polish for a guitar or something, and pretending to use it as a slide going up and down his sax when he dueled w/ Tim. It was out of this world; best crush I've ever heard, no question. Carter had a LOT of smiles, and Boyd found a little life in him w/ Trippin Billies and LIOG.

Now, time to prepare for the cruise!!

Incredible performance. Willie Nelson sounded great as he and his son kicked off the show. The new introduction to the show I think blew everyone away and was quite spectacular. Getting to hear Halloween in the close of the show was breathtaking! Great show all around.

Great show. Started off strong and never let up. It seemed that Halloween wasn't planned because Dave was really directing traffic up there after Baby Blue. Great show, great seats, and the sound was right on. What more do you need?

Awesome set list. Halloween closer was to die for. Too bad Sprint Center has sound issues (typical complaint of this venue) that tended to dampen the sound.

Great show! They played a stellar mix of some of the good new songs and some old favorites (Dreaming Tree, Proudest Monkey, Halloween, are you kidding me?) I have been to several dave concerts here in KC and this has to rank as the best. Heres to Dave and the boys revisiting the Sprint Center next year!

Solid how. The band seemed like it was going through the motions during the main set, but blew it out of the water with the encore. The biggest problem with the show was the crowd. The crowd sat down often, there were a ton of unsold seats visible in the upper level, and during halloween, approximately 2% of the people in the joint were dancing and excited. I wish I would have gotten that encore at night 2 in deer creek.

Great show, only drawback was that it was indoors. Finishing the show with Halloween was unbelievable!

This was my 8th time seeing DMB perform live over the past 10 years. This performance ranks #1 of the DMB concerts I have seen. The band had great energy, especially considering they are on the tail end of the summer-long tour. Jeff Coffin and Boyd Tinsley each had awesome jams. All of the Big Whiskey songs were awesome to hear live. Selfishly, I wish they would have added Dive In to the set list, but I'm definitely not complaining. Getting to witness Dave sing Gravedigger as a duet with Willie Nelson is something that I will never forget. All in all, an awesome performance!

I have been to 7 shows, and this one topped them all. The group was alive from the very beginning. Carter with that huge smile all night, Dave dancing, taking someones glasses :) it was a terrific show. Got to see them early this season in St. Louis, and then at the end here. Night and day...Shake Me rocked, was tight, and clean, and the outro on LITHOG was great!

BT was on FIRE tonight! Billies!!! LIOG!! A bunch of others...it was great to see him back in form, and roaming the stage. Let's not forget Halloween! We were supposed to get Ants, which would have been fine...but Halloween took the show!

Awesome! Live Trax worthy!



I did not notice the sound problem actually...but I've been to shows there where it has been a problem.

Great show! Can't believe we got Halloween in KC! Never expected it. Boyd was hot all night! Crowd could have been better; it's beyond me how people can sit down during Alligator Pie. That's typical of KC though. The boys put on a hell of a show! I can't wait for the next tour!
