Despite the slightly flawed big eyed fish, They saved it with an awesome bartender! Jeff shredded on the penny whistle! Why I Am really got the crowd pumped up, and Boyd single handedly owned crush. Couldn't believe I got to hear alligator pie and it lived up to expectations. Everyday with Vusi was almost as great as MSG. Of course #41 was awesome, and Two Step to close!!! The setlist speaks for itself...Great show

Holy crap... what a phenomenal show from start to bottom

Big Eyed Fish- Some mess ups, but still a great opener
Bartender- Already the show is great, this song always rocks
Why I Am- Not usually a fan, but I liked the placement of this tonight
Write A Song- Didn't need to hear it since I saw it in Wrigley, but hey it's a good song
Crush- Now the set list is starting up again! Love this song definitely top 10 for me
Break Free- Holy crap where did this come from! Totally shocked and happy for this awesome song
Gravedigger- Seen this 4 times out of 5 shows so not super excited to hear, but its still a good song
Alligator Pie- Never thought I would hear this after it vanished in 2009, nice little suprise
Nancies- Love the song itself, ending violin solo drags to long for me though
Spaceman- Nice little drum intro, Rashawn owned this... Im really starting to like this song
Everyday- As soon as he said Vusi, everyone knew the best Everyday ever was gonna follow
The Idea of You- Another huge shock, took me a little while to figure out what it was
#41- Face melting Warren vs. Tim = incredible
Blackjack: So happy I finally heard this, best version ever (nice shot beach ball haha)
Time Bomb- I love this song., dont always understand the hate
Stay- Totally suprised it wasnt watchtower, out of tune to start but they fixed it and it was awesome
Sister- only bad song... talked through it
Can't Stop- Damn this song has changed. I love what Tim does with it
Two Step- Bongos vs. Carter. Nuff said

Second DMB show I've seen and needless to say it blew the last show out of the water. Highlights of the show are easily the #41 (Warren & Tim killing it in a solo war), Crush (I think they named this song Crush because Boyd crushes it every time towards the end), and of course the 25 minute Two Step in which Carter was going back and forth with some guy with African drums. Unreal performance by the great band. Can't wait for Governor's Island.

The Dave and Tim set was awesome and it made it feel like a double header. There were some mess ups on songs like big eyed fish and stay but the band was clean other than that. They really brought great energy which made this show a good show.

Such a great show! First bartender and blackjack! I love break free, so it was great to hear it tonight. Warren Haynes vs Tim Reynolds, way too epic to describe! The only part of this show that I wasn't crazy about was two step... by far the weakest version i've ever seen. Carter doesn't need another drummer on stage, he's the best in the world and it seemed like he just held back b/c of the other guy.

Strong, VERY strong #41 with Warren and Tim getting it in on the solos. Dave flubbed the Big Eyed Fish lyrics, and someone missed their cue on Stay, but other than that it was a great show. Break free was a treat. Expecting big things for night 3...still a lot on the table.

2nd or 3rd best of 20 shows that I have been to.

The best TWO STEP I have ever heard. In fact, it was twice as good as any live version of Two Step I have ever heard. The reggae solo in the middle was epic.

Crowd 100% into it this time. A great show, hopefully they throw this weekend onto a CD.

to explain the crowd life and energy that night is impossible. it felt like the setlist just kept going and going and going. big eyed fish into bartender is just an amazing opener..liberation of break free was face melting and everything after that just got better and better..the echoing of the crowd in Everyday with Vusi to Dave blabbering in Blackjack to ending with Stay. and the encore which suprised with Two Step just ended the night perfectly. and gave perfect direction and head way into night 3.

Great show!! Much better than N1. Not as epic as N3. But still Amazing enough to get 5 stars. The band was soo full of energy. Big Eyed Fish was messed up so bad, it threw them off the entire song, but its OK because they eventually got back on track and killed the rest of the show.
There were so many special guests, it made the show really original. Best Two Step I ever heard, with the dueling bongos & Carter jamming. Also, BREAK FREE!!!!!! What a nice surprise.

I have SO many good memories from this 3 day run. It marked the 20th year of touring for the band. It was awesome to see the musicians who played earlier in the day go up and jam with DMB. Carter had a mind blowing drum solo with the drummer from Damien Marley's band. We got to see Tim Reynolds play guitar with Warren Haynes which was incredible. Vusi Mahlasela came up to sing and dance with the band. At the end of the 3rd night during the Thank You cover Dave threw his mic, the crowd took over singing and he danced out onto the catwalk right in front of us. After the show was done the 1000's of fans left the field all still singing. This was the weekend that turned me into even more of a DMB addict.
