The best show Dave has ever played! Seek up was epic, Billies was the best song I've ever seen live, there was not a bad song in the set (maybe digging a ditch) but The encore spoke for itself, thank you Dave!

This has probably been the best show I have been to yet. Barclay Center will be number 10 for me and counting only single night shows, this one tops the list for me. I don't really need to explain since it came out as an album release which topped off the whole experience. The energy was simply amazing and it was enjoyed with some good friends!

hands down best show and set-list i have ever seen and heard. i was speculating before the concert what they would open with and i said Seek Up and sure enough. just jaw dropping. got to hear my all time favorite song Warehouse for the first time which i will never ever forget. and from there its just indescribable..liberating Kill the king..raven..so much to say..one sweet world mid-set list..tripping billies and even a Sweet Emotion cover into Too Much..just amazing..and the chanting of Halloween in the encore forcing the band to forfeit the Last Stop and play the best Halloween i have ever heard in my life into Ants..just. perfect. unforgettable.

N3 was purely magical. Best setlist ever. This is why DMB fans are DMB fans, this is the band we've grown to love & follow for so many years. This is the reason we go to so many shows, in hope to finally see such a rare show like this. Breathtaking!!

This show deserves 5 stars, I dont know why it has 4.5, who ever gave it 4 stars is an idiot.

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. First time I hear Halloween live and the fake into ants then the switch to it was epic. 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. I danced my ass off and lost my voice for several days afterwards. Best DMB show I've been to so far!! This was the weekend that turned me into even more of a DMB addict.

That encore won't ever be outdone ever! I have to say THANK YOU DMB!! I saw Charlotte, DC, ATL, Tampa, WPBx2, Gorgex3, Charleston, MSGx2, Cvillex2 in 2010 and AC in '11 and I have been BLOWN AWAY!

That was so sweet. I can't believe I got to be there this weekend. Wore just my bathing suit, and we were so close (we only saw David Grey, who came before DMB). This show made sure every jam in the band's catalog (save for Last Stop and Bayou, although I'm not cryin!) was played. FINALLY got to see Seek Up and Halloween live. I was delighted to get Billies, WWYS, SMTS and Too Much. Sweet Emotion was sweet! Best of all, not a single song was repeated this entire weekend. 4 reviews in 3 days. Rebolution, OAR, Guster, Thievery Corporation, David Grey, Thank you DMB!

The best show I have ever attended. Seek Up into Warehouse was brilliant. I have seen Billies live a couple of times, but it was played to perfection. That alone was worth the price of the ticket. Too Much, a song I am not a big fan of was also fantastic. Watchtower is always a bonus, and it was excellent. Halloween was epic and a surprise. The crowd atmosphere was unforgettable. People were chanting Thank You for the 15 minute walk out of the field. Unforgettable show.
