This was an amazing show! We were in the very front of the pit to the side of Boyd and Tim. Dave even came over during Jimi and reached down to grab my hand! They built each song up, all were played incredibly and his voice was spot on. I feel so lucky to of been there!

The band exploded with a wall of energy straight from the first jam on Loving Wings all the way through All Along the Watchtower. This show is worth a download... ESPECIALLY that Two Step. Good GOD!

Great show. Two Step and All Along the Watchtower were awesome as always and it was nice to hear some new tunes. I love Gaucho and Mercy.

Loving Wings and Save Me were nice to hear. Overall good show, the band sounded fantastic and glad to see them starting the tour in Texas!

Lots of surprises at this show. Loving Wings was a shock to hear open, and it was almost perfect. First full-band Save Me was really funky. The new songs were a nice refreshment, and the returns of Out of my Hands and If I Had it All were splendid. Finally, Fonz's solo featured interpolations of both Bach and Tool. Good stuff all night!

Great show...high energy...and a solid performance by the boys. While I'm from Houston...the Dallas show was the highlight of the two. Thanks for starting your tour off in Texas DMB!

Wow, wow, wow.

Coming off The Woodlands show, this was a great setlist with a lot more energy. Crowd singing to Jimi Thing was great, looked like the band got a kick out of it. Two Step's outro was phenomenal. During the encore the crew spent a lot of time getting Carter's kit back in shape, as he completely destroyed it. Watchtower seemed a bit short, but didn't lose its energy.

My wife and I attended and had a blast. Glad the weather cooperated and wasn't too terrible. Dave playing piano on Out of My Hands is one of my favorite show experiences ever. Also Stefan's solo before Watchtower was INCREDIBLE.

Loving wings was an odd opener but I liked it. Mercy is better with the whole band. Loved loved loved If I Had It All. So Damn Lucky and Too Much rocked as well.

I scored Houston 3 out of 5 despite some great moments because there was an inconsistency and no clear focus. Dallas was the opposite. From the moment Jeff took control of opener Wings there was no looking back. The show continuity and flow of songs made setlist debate or pickiness pointless. This show was so good it could have ended without an encore! Highlights, if we must, because the whole show was its own moment, might have been Dave playing tambourine on Home with the Magnetic Zeros.

My lowest rated show so far...they didn't seem into it, took forever between songs...

Kind of a slower set. Nothing too special....always great to see the fellas jam, though!

It was fantastic. Loving Wings was a strange/cool opener. Dave's piano intro into Out of my Hands brought tears to my eyes. Boyd's playing and Dave's voice were spot on... It was very cool to hear If I had it all... As usual, obnoxious crowd, but aren't we all used to it at this point??

I personally enjoyed tonight. Loving Wings, though strange, somehow worked for me. I think because it was so weird...and unexpected...that's why I loved it in that spot. Quiet to start...then a nice long well developed jam....followed by YMDT.... I thought that was wonderful. The new songs were nice to hear...and I'm sure as time goes I'll grow to like them...I think both have tremendous potential. Was it the best show I've been to? No.... But we got some nice tunes, Nancies is always good...Save Me full band was cool to see....and I actually like If I Had It All....another random one...but nice to hear..as was an unaltered Too Much

Not my fav set list (seemed to wander around a bit), but a couple huge highlights, including Dave letting the crowd sing most of Jimi Thing and a slammin Two Step. Loved Tim's and Carter's solos during Two Step. Watchtower was a great high-octane close. Decent crowd energy.
