Pig and Big Eyed Fish- awesome.

On paper, opening with Everyday and closing with Shake Me seems kind of weak, but the energy was definitely there so it payed off.

Digging a Ditch interpolation in So Damn Lucky was awesome! Sound quality was a lot better than last year because i was so close!

This was my first DMB show ever and although I loved it, would have loved it more had I been a lot closer to the stage! Plus my digital camera binoculars failed so I missed out on some great pics!

My location was awesome and Zac Brown was awesome. Dave played some great songs, but it was a little shorter concert than he usually plays.

First show, blew me away. Really wanted one of either Crush, Jimi Thing, or #41, but the set was still pretty good. Encore was pretty weak, but Warehouse and Say Goodbye were both amazing

Great show, great classics as well as some good new stuff. Highlight for me def. was extended Recently w/ Pretty Pretty Girl, with an embedded Cornbread in it. Also loved Say Goodbye, and I enjoyed the Encore with So Damn Lucky... Great show, great crowd... a bit hot, but an awesome night overall.

Excellent show, excellent setlist, don't compare it to alpine, its not alpine and we all know that thanks. Great energy up front, not a fan of ZBB and by the looks of the crowd I wasn't the only one. Win some lose some.

IF you would permit I would like to review THE SHOW... I know some have been slamming ZBB,,, butttt,,, they were great. A Rage "killing in the name of" closer??? Holy Shit.

DMB. Awesome as usual. I liked the everyday opener. The band was really meshing and working well together. You could see that they were having a good time. Lots of Dave speak. I got my fav. DDTW. I liked the encores. Crowd was reaaly into it tonight. The annual rain held off until just after the show which was a nice touch on Daves part. Looking forward to Nationals Park and then 2 nights in WPB with my love...

Pig, Stay or Leave, BEF > Say Goodbye...incredible run to begin the show. The weak part was probably Gravedigger and LITHOG, but that's not a terrible weak run of a show. Recently > Cornbread > Recently was incredible, and the Eh Hee > Warehouse followed by Stay and Ants was a great way to end the set. Easily the best show I've ever been to!

Show #34 and I've never been front row before - until tonight. Unfortunately the show was a major disappointment. It never really took off. Everyday is THE worst opener, and they finished with possibly the worst encore the tour. Say Goodbye and Recently were the highlights for me. I attended both Camden nights and essentially it was just a mix of both of those nights without much change.

Dmb was as great as always. Highlight for me was definitely the recently-cornbread recently run that was nicely put together with alot of energy. The setlist lacked energy and so did the crowd. It also has to be one of the worst venues for traffic that I have been too. DMB continues to play much tighter

Fifth Dave Show. The start of a week long road trip following Dave around PA, including Bethel. DMB 2010 PA Tour. 20 Years of Excellence.
So many songs Ive never heard that blew my mind, from opening with Everyday, to Pig, to Say Goodbye, The Recently Cornbread Recently sandwich, Warehouse (cow bell boys!). Unreal, Epic show with three more ahead of us!

After he played Everyday (what is it with this song at EVERY Hershey show since it was written?!?!) The set list got better! Recently! Woohoo!! He hasn't played that here since 1996! About time! BEF was a surprise, and Say Goodbye was awesome! Some of the extended jams went wild! Zac Brown was one of the best opening acts that I've seen seen here! They could have played another half hour IMHO! The Some Devil stuff was cool to hear even though it doesn't appear to be too popular with some people. I enjoyed the show except for the morons behind me that wouldn't shut the F*** up almost the whole show! (and the chain smoker..really people!) I give it a 5!!

Now this is more like it! A vast improvement from last year, the band was red-hot this time around! I'm not gonna go over each song in the setlist, but overall: less Big Whiskey was played, more goodies like Say Goodbye and Pig appeared. The abundance of Some Devil songs disenchanted me at first, but eventually I certainly enjoyed their place in the set. Dave's voice sounded a lot better this year, and the band (especially Carter) were full of energy and less tired like last year. The first half of the show was solid as ever, and the second half, while not as amazing, was still great; songs like Warehouse and the Recentbreadly segway saved it. A lot of people hated the encore, but I loved it and thought it ended the show fittingly. A 5-star performance if I ever heard one.

"WOW" – my 28th DMB concert and my first time @ Hershey, and I told myself my review had to begin w/ that 1 simple word. This was the best DMB show I've seen since Berkeley in Sep08. It really did feel like too much chocolate. : )
We were in GA1 in a good spot facing Jeff & Rashawn, and the people around us were a lot of fun. First run of songs had a great flow. BEF and Gravedigger were kinda mellow for me, but LITHOG had a really pretty and well-performed outro. Still Water-->DDTW was fun, & the whole "I will stalk somebody for hours" was frikkin hilarious!
The entire run of Water/Wine Jam-->Recently-->Cornbread-->Recently (with Pretty, Pretty Girl!) completely blew my mind. I went there hoping to hear something old like Recently or TSTJL. I've only heard Recently 3x before & the last was MSG in Dec05. I love this song, especially the "pretty, pretty girl" ending; needless to say when they played that during the reprise after I had called it, I was ecstatic. The jam before that was sick, plus throwing Cornbread in the middle was a tremendously fun surprise. This is one of the few new songs I really like, and Dave dancing around during Tim's solo was so fun to see.
Not sure how good Eh Hee is to launch the Warehouse; it sure didn’t have the explosion like the Central Park concert, ya know? It's been ages since I've heard Warehouse without the stop-time intro, but I love the salsa outro. I'll always love Ants, and it seemed like a particularly fun way to close out the first set, especially the first 3 min.
We used the downtime before the encore to get closer to the stage, and we got up to the center of the B section. Definitely more crowded up there, but not bad for a few songs (plus some people were leaving early?) There was a moment during the outro of SDL when I was really touched - I can't explain it, but the last 5 min just felt so inspiring. SMLAM was a good choice for a new song to close out the night, although I would have preferred YMDT instead. It felt somewhat rushed, though, and I really thought we'd get a fourth song.
This was at least a 4/5 show for me… Despite the heat, there was great energy in the air. The set might look weak on paper, but the band had the perfect vibe for a hot summer night.

Great show, great energy. 20 concerts in and I still hear songs I've never heard before live, thats one reason you know this band is great. Wish they would have done one more after Shake Me but I'm not a complainer. One more this year at Nationals Park, see ya then.

Not a horrible set, but thought for sure DMB would have thrown some of the more rare songs at the crowd tonight considering so many people stood in the heat all day because of the lack of seating this year. LITHOG continues to get better every time I hear it and the Recently-->Corn Bread-->Recently thing was pretty cool too. However, the encore sucked..I am 2/2 this year on Some Devil, wish they would forget how to play SDL and Shake Me is not a show closer. Feel as though I am not alone on this one by the amount of neon bracelets that seemed to be thrown directly at the stage. The good news is that SDL did not go into Thank You as I fear the tour would have been put on hold due to something hitting Dave right between the eyes!

Awesome setlist! Everyday was a sweet opener it was chill and got the crowd involved. I finally got Pig! Amazing. Say Goodbye, Warehouse, Big Eyed Fish, Grey Street, Ants, Recently->Corn Bread, Stay, DDTW: all fantastic. I know I almost listed the whole set but the band was that good they brought a little extra energy on everything. I love Timmy on SDL and Some Devil Dave solo was sweet to start the encore. SMLAM was a nice punch to close the show.

Absolutely amazing show. By far the best show I have seen since LeRoi passed. While the set list was damn near perfect the crowd seemed somewhat subdued. The tailgating seemed rather weak and I assume it was simply due to the heat and the economy.

My first DMB show. I was blown away by the band but the overall concert experience was not great. The crowd was unexpected in terms of age, which led to quite a different atmosphere and the stadium was run down. Overall great performance by the band though.

Front GA was packed! I had a great spot but couldn't even move to shift the weight on my feet. They need to come up with a better Idea for GA cause this sucked. People around me were cool about letting people through but people about 30 yds from the stage were super douche bags about it. I heard on guy say he was going to fight any guy that tried to get by him. I've been to Hershey 3 times now and this was by far the worst experience.

Great show, great night. Band was TIGHT, their musicianship outstanding. Four stars out of five because I prefer smaller, more intimate venues but the sound quality was pretty good and the video work was great.

Yeah, Dave's "I really like to scare the sh*t out of people" bit was hysterical.

OK set but really up and down. Band came on late (about 8:45pm) and the show never seemed to find a groove. The encore wasn't very strong, so it didn't even end on a high note. The lone upside for me was I got Big Eyed Fish!!!! Been chasing this song since I started seeing DMB in 2004 and it made the entire night worth it!! Overall, though, an ok show.
