It was awesome seeing a DMB show in Rome, but was pretty weak.
DMb while abroad in rome, the crowd was kinda lame but the show was great

Felt I needed to be the first to pen a review of Rome. I would imagine the Italian Ants are all still touring and recovering from Padua tonight, but my wife and I are now back in snowy and freezing Scotland...!
Dave remarked venue perhaps a bit too big for the crowd assembled (there were large swathes of empty seats upstairs), but he also said those there would be the lucky ones, and we certainly were.
Our 15th gig in just 3 years finally got us Warehouse, my wife's favourite, and a good setlist packed full of Groo Grux material (8 songs) which went down very well with the locals.
Large number of North American students too added to the excellent atmosphere, but the most striking thing for me was how knowledgeable the local Italian fans are. Absolutely fanatical, I only hope my fellow UK devotees can replicate their passion next week, when the tour moves in to the UK phase. I can hardly wait...!!
