Simply put, the best show I have ever been to. Top to bottom tonights setlist had no slow points or weaknesses. #41 and Cortez with Warren were amazing and that Two Step took my breath away. Im so happy to see the band having fun, interacting with each other and playing one intense effing show.

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! First half was great, but the second set just rocked! Epic Cortez, Warren was the best I've ever seen him. DIDO, SMTS, Too Much and Stay were all high energy. Crowd was into the whole show. I would have liked a little longer 41, but it was still good with Warren up there.

I got a real kick out of Dave loving playing with no hands andprofessing his love for Carter. Carter rocked. The band jammed to perfection. Excellent dynamics ruled the night.

Great show. DIDO was a nice surprise. Warren was awesome. Alecia Chakour made Stay the best version of that song I have heard in years. They ran over so four songs got cut from the set.

This was my 41st show. For those of you who were there... this requires no further explanation.
When we walked over from the WH set, I was getting worried because it was so crowded. But two AWESOME friends managed to get me into VIP and from there the night just kept getting better.
The OSW into Fishtender opener really set the tone for the night, and Jeff killed LeRoi's pennywhistle solo. It got a bit slow and then once Stephan started the intro to Crush the remainder of the set was like a runaway 4 train. The guys seemed happy on stage and that energy really showed in their performance.
When Warren came on the stage, I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. But it turned out just as I hoped, and I got #41... and then Cortez? This moment was just insane! From there, the guys kept the energy strong with SMTS-->ASTB-->TM to end the set with Stay.
The night felt like a blur when they closed out the show with Two Step. It was like the icing on the cake. I was so lucky to share this amazing night with great friends plus have my girlfriend with me (her 5th show!). I think it's rare to have a night any better than this.

Truly amazing second night. Knowing Warren was going to guest set my expectations through the roof. Best #41 I've ever heard live. Tim and Warren were amazing while trading solos and dueling. Cortez was a great surprise. The band was full of energy as well as the NYC crowd. I consider myself damn lucky to have seen night 2. Next stop...night 3!! Last Stop afterall!!!

Great Show! Went with Jared Richbaum. Hard to get to and from the island, but the band was on fire. They jammed out on every song. Great to see Warren Haynes play with them and even better to hear Cortez the Killer. Was a great surprise to hear Stay with a female voice.

I will never get sick of the OSW opener. I got to see Fishtender for the first time and loved it. Crush, Shotgun, DIDO was a nice run, DIDO just rocks live. So, things were going great. Then Warren came out and blew everyone's mind for about 35 minutes on #41 and Cortez. No words to describe it. The Two Step encore closer was filthy. This is in the interchangeable ranking of the Top 3 shows I have seen. They are all very close.

My first Dave show, and it was quite a place to start. Energy was great from start to finish. This still stands as my favorite Two Step. In a way, I wish this wasn't my first, so I could have appreciated some of the gems a little more.

Incredible Night! Everything was spot on and sounded awesome. Band was so into it. Then Warren....my god if you have the opportunity, you must listen to #41 and Cortez. He killed it. setlist was great, crowd was great, band was great, Warren was amazing. Fantastic N2. Anyone who votes this show a 4 just has ridiculous expectations. 5 any day in my book.
