Dave had great personality, the set list was good (though I'd have liked to see a few changes) the English crowd was interesting...it wasn't bad, but the Americans that were present were the ones getting into the show. Everyone in seats (or 95% in seats) were sitting, which is highly unusual for a Dave show. Overall, great time, but I've been blessed with some great outdoor, summer shows, so it wasn't my favorite.

So Much to Say into Ants Marching was a surprise that worked well

Pretty good venue to get to (driving) and view unobstructed by any pillars. Seat on Level 1 (Row Q Seat 317) and sound better than Wembley Arena - though again Carter's bass drum seemed to be overpowering (maybe I'm just getting old).

Thoroughly enjoyable show although Dave was sounding a little croaky. As usual a lot of folks seemed more interested in getting beer and crappy food than watching the band but I was rooted to my seat!

Great stuff!

This show was incredible. I had a side seat that was very close to the band, so I got to see how much body language the band has throughout the jams. Boyd and Coffin seemed to have a need for the limelight the whole night (I think coffin won). Coffin and Tim had a very entertaining jam battle in the jam of crush which gave Coffin the lead in my opinion. I was also very happy to see Sugar Will return and see Jimi Thing. Jimi Thing was weird because Boyd seemed to play into daves vocal part because he was standing front stage ripping a huge solo (dave ,later in the jam, pretended to hit Boyd with his guitar laughing). O yeah and Reshawn had a real break though night with some great solos, this Year might be the year Reshawn pulls out as the background player and starts to have some influence in jams. Over all great intensity great show glad i saw this.

The show was decent though not the best I have seen. There were a lot of great jams esp with Tim and Jeff. Tims electric guitar brings something new to all the songs which sounds great. Sledgehammer in the encore was a surprise as I've never heard DMB cover it before. Other than that, nothing special about the set. English crowd is just differnt than the US, the seated audiance stayed seated the whole show which is strange but I expected it from seeing Dave and Tim a few years ago at Oxford

Not the best arena, guitar bias a bit high in sound setup. Band performed beautifully. Of course :-)

It was great to hear Sugar Will come back, as well as meet up with ants from all over the world. Awesome show

The o2 arena paid host. Not
Much to say other than 3rd row on thenfloor to the side of Steffan. Great tracks such as Stay making a return and Crush going solo plus Ants Marching being heard by me live for the first time since 2007. Immense

This is possible the largest venue in the UK. We were standing, about a 1/3 of the way back. The atmosphere was terrific and the band very tight - but the evening was marred by a lack of screens. So difficult to see much.
Last year the song from Big Whiskey were played 'straight' this year they're much, much stronger.
Glasgow next (for me).

Fifth time seeing Dave and/or the band, and the best show yet. Sound quality was amazing: much better than at Brixton or Wembley Arena. The band jammed and riffed off each other all night long: made me realsie why I listen to the live albums now rather than just the studio ones.
Even better, two All American girls danced the night away right next to me, whilst I stayed seated like the prim and proper English boy I am. Terrible, I should have been dancing, I hear you cry! No thanks, I had two great views in front of me: Dave on stage, and...well, use your imagination as to what was bouncing up and down right in front of my eyes! That's why Englishmen don't dance!

Decent show, lots of Davespeak going on. We were soooo jetlagged, but good overall.

Admittedly only the second DMB show I've been to but I thought it was incredible - right at the front with a great atmosphere, great setlist. O2 was brilliant, can't wait for them to come to the UK!

The sound in The O2 is fantastic. Best concert I've been to yet. Highlights - Lying In The Hands Of God, Crush, Jimi Thing
