The first time I had the pleasure to see the whole Band live - an absolutely mind blowing experience!
I am still cheerful thinking of the show and listening to DMB music all day long.

I really liked the energy and devotion of all the guys performing. It is such a joy to be at a show like this. Can't wait to see them live again.

Fantastic show - the first time at a DMB concert for me - and I was stunned about the technical quality of the band members. The new tunes, which I'm not too familiar with, was performed really well, and the old tunes just blew me away.

I would have preferred more old tunes at the show, but I guess this is what I could expect for a tour promoting the new album in Europe.

Out of my 5 DMB shows this is the abloute best. The venue was great and DMB were in a great mode. The were jams awesome and when Boyd fired away in Dancin Nancies I just danced away an sang "la, la la, sing and dance". Jeff ruled in 41. Thanks alot, it was definately worth the 8 hours trip from Sweden.

Second show on the 2010 Euro tour, fantastic setting (Tempodrom is a really great venue that holds about 3500 people). Vibe of the show was different to the night before, very soft and slow start with PM->Satellite. As expected, they played tons of BW songs again which was fine with me, happy to hear Alligator Pie again. Highlights definitely were #41 (Coffin owns this song), Dancing Nancies, a sweet jam at the end of LITHOG.

And that double encore, of course. Two Step was phenomenal, and altough SDL as E2 might sound a bit odd, it was such a great way to close the show. Dave added some impromtu "Thank you..." vocals to the song, and at the end, Rashawn and Dave incorporated some "Thank You (Falletin...)"-parts into the whole jam. Band seemed the have a blast with it, and so did we. Great show!

I've never seen the band so cool, fresh and groovy! Mix that with the beautiful venue, extreme energy, many handshakes, autographs, drumsticks, setlist and the 1st row, and you have the best show in my life!!!!!

This was my 6th concert, all of which were in Europe. I've seen the band in Dublin 05/23/07, then again at Brixton Academy, Hyde Park in London and L'Olympia in Paris last year... I never expected this show to be so amazing, partly because I didn't expect much from the audience. In Paris people were just crazy, the floor was moving up and down along with the crowd. I was surprised that by the time we arrived at 4pm, two hours before opening, there was only like 40-50 people waiting. We went for a beer and even after more than hour still managed to get the front row, right in front of Stefan, Rashawn and Jeff.

Dave appeared to introduce Alberta Cross, he sounded like they had a great time the night before after the show in Hamburg:) When they finally got on stage the room went crazy, they started slow with one of my all time favourites, Proudest Monkey. Dave sang it in a sweet manner, but confidently. Tim's solo, then Rashawn on muted trumpet. At the end the band was all smiling:) Dave turned to Carter a couple of times, apparently very happy with the sound. You could just feel the energy, I've never seen them like that:)

As for songs from Big Whiskey, they all grew a bit since last Europe Tour, the high point being a superb solo on soprano saxophone by Jeff at the end of Lying In The Hands Of God. Funny The WAy It Is was just a little bit longer, with more time for Tim to show off:) And Dave's vocals sounded nice on Seven, by the time he started singing that song I was shure that his singing would be amazing that night. I'm not very fond of Shake Me Like A Monkey or Alligator Pie, mainly because I don't like the lyrics to these:) but hats off for the band for pulling so complicated arrangements on stage.

#41 lately became amazing thing with Jeff and Carter jamming along. In the middle of it they stopped, looked at each other and laughed, not shure what to do next:) but then Carter began jazz groove, so they were swingin' for a moment... As much as I loved Roi, I must say that Jeff is a superb live musician. I still prefer Roi's beautiful solos, but he was never a rockstar:) and Jeff can just steal the stage.

Boyd did an amazing job on Dancing Nancies, with a long solo walking everywhere on stage. Carter had his amazing minutes during Two Step, you could see that Stefan was happy playing every single note. And Dave, with his dances, and jokes about knowing only "danke shoen" in german:)

Anyone saying that So Damn Lucky is not a good way to close concert is very wrong. Don't get me wrong, I love it when they close with Watchtower, laving you with your eyes wide open and wanting more, but this was like a gentle saying goodbye, cool down, Dave took his guitar off and started singing Thank You, he wanted Rashawn to help him or him and Jeff to add some horns, but these guys just laghed at him:)

At the end, while Carter was throwing drumsticks, Dave got down from stage and started giving autographs and shaking hands with the people in the front. Stefan, Tim and then Carter did the same thing. Some chicks took their shirts off and gave them to Rashawn, he went backstage and returned with autographs from the whole band:)

It was an amazing night... All the concerts I attended were in Europe, so I was right in front on every single one of them, but this one was unique. Energy, fun from playing, positive emotions, everything was there, it blew my mind! Can't wait to see the band again!
