Solid show tonight. Dave's voice was shredded... I am actually surprised that he was able to hang in there as well as he did. Crowd was in to it, nice mix of songs in the set, nice venue... sad that it is over.

Nice set. Christmas song was great. What the hell was up with eveyday? Futureman was.... Bad. Drunken soldier and rooftop were very impressive.

Setlist could have been better but I can't complain about that encore. #41 was amazing also. Pretty solid show. First time seeing them indoors. Hope they come back soon!

Damn that was a solid show. After a strong opening, it slowed down with Eh Hee > Rooftop > Seven, but then picked back up with a stellar #41. We completely stepped in shit (a good thing) when they scratched OOMH from the set and moved straight to Grey Street. For me, the show went to a new level following You and Me. The 8-song run from Jimi Thing through Billies was one of the best I\'ve seen in a while. The encore was off the charts Xmas Song > Halloween > Billies. Great ending. The band played with a lot of energy and seemed to be having a good time. Futureman guesting on Everyday was a treat. The new songs translate live much better than I expected. I enjoyed the crowd at the Yum! Center - a refreshing change from the DeerCreek lawn where its like Lord of the Flies with 18 year olds. Overall, I give it an A+, especially for an arena show.

Decent setlist, all the core true fan favorites but we felt like we could have seen a better line up. Still awesome though Two Step, Halloween>Tripping, Dont Drink The Water to open. Amazing

Good Show, Have been to better ones but the jamming sessions were pretty awesome. Hope his voice gets better. thanks for coming to the ville

Just a fun show to be at and the closest I have ever been to the stage. Also my first winter tour show. Show #36 was a pretty good with highlights of the new material Drunken Soldier, Rooftop, and Belly Belly Nice. Plus the encore of Christmas Song, Sweet Home Chicago, & Hallowbillies is one of the best encores I've ever witnessed.

"Wow." I just kept saying that over and over again throughout the show. I had low expectations going in, but this show was completely worth the trip from Indy. I expected a lot more songs from the new album, but it was a great mix of songs. The run of songs from the opener to Grey Street was great. Drunken Soldier is great live. Everyday was a nice surprise, as was Christmas Song. The only down song for me was stupid Halloween. Great show!

Get GA if you're willing to stand the entire show if you're looking to hit up the winter tour. Every GA seat was better than the best reserved seat.

It was obvious that Dave was not feeling well. The rest of the band and an awesome setlist picked up with long jams. Boyd was on fire as well as Rashawn and Tim. I have not seen Boyd so animated in long time. Encore was unbelievable. Futureman was a pleasant suprise.

Unbelievable ... thanks to the Warehouse early entrance, we were in the 1st row - literally on the railing! Carter handed 3 of us drumsticks after the encore ... the show was killer too - as always!

First time seeing Dave inside, we're usually outside in Indianapolis. Love the show. First time hearing Christmas Song live. Great to hear Drunken Soldier live. Loved the encore!

The "Country Blues Improv" in the encore was Sweet Home Chicago, without the lyrics (which I happily supplied). Get ready United Center; you're gonna get some! Fun show. #41, Grey Street, Jimi Thing, Two Step, Boyd's solo in Everyday (#36), and Sweet Home Chicago were my favorites. Good good time at show #48. Thanks to Mike, Carter's bus driver, for the Lounge hookup.

Decent overall setlist with great energy from the band. Dave complained of being hoarse, so I was surprised when he busted out Halloween in the encore.

Encore of Christmas Song>Halloween>Billies was incredible. I'd never heard Christmas Song live and always wanted to.

I need to preface this by saying we totally lucked out and got front row on the floor so even though I thought the set could've been better, we had an unbelievable experience being that close to the band. That being said, the first half was slow--not bad, just slower. BUT: the second half completely rocked. Look at how they closed: Digging a Ditch Drunken Soldier Everyday Two Step Christmas Song Improv ...> Halloween ...> Tripping Billies This was by far the best close to a show I've seen out of my 13 shows. Wow. On top of that, Stefan gave me a pick...awesome night...thanks guys!

Dave was sick. Not a great show. But...... I'd go again tomorrow.

I was on the floor for this one about 7 or 8 rows back just left of the center. The show was great in spite of Dave being sick with a sore/hoarse throat. He is such a stud, he still did Halloween even with a jacked up throat. I loved the new songs, especially Rooftop, DS, and BBN. Two Step is always great, #41 was sweet and I love Halloween! The Christmas Song Halloween encore was a perfect way to end the show, it was amazing. This year, I only attended one summer show and one winter show, Blossom in June and KFC Yum Center in Dec. I must say the Blossom show was so much more fun. The Louisville crowd was the dullest crowd I have ever been a part of. I think I will stick with the outdoor venues from now on unless it\'s to see Dave and Tim. No matter about the crowd or venue, I have never left a show feeling let down by the band. They are the greatest band ever and I will always be in love with the beautiful kickass music they make.

Great show tonight. Strong opener with Don't Drink the Water, a crowd pleasing Grey Street, a memorable performance of Everyday with guest Futureman, and great to see several new songs performed live for the first time. The highlight of the show was the spectacular encore of Christmas Song, Halloween, and Tripping Billies.

Crowd was horrible. Third show into the tour, and to have 75% of the songs as repeats was pretty lame. Encore saved this show from being one star...

Awesome Show!!

They played the new songs perfectly in the set and played the ones I was excited to see.

Grey Street was great placement and glad they didn't end set with Everyday but with Two Step!

Then of course Christmas Song > Improv > Halloween > Tripping Billies.

Best encore I've seen in the 10 shows I've been to.

Best encore I've seen to date - out of 16+ shows I've been to, never seen Halloween live (which is my favorite song), so it was awesome to see it in the encore!

This was my first show EVER. I may have been overtaken by the whole of the experience, but the Band sounded more on top than they have all year. I was speechless when they launched into Halloween and Tripping Billies. I missed the first few songs, but the rest of the set made up for what was lost, so I am not complaining.

The weird dubsteppy thing with Two Step was weird, but they killed then ending.
The show was slow and too mellow. A little boring.
The encore, for me, was the best encore ever. Made up for some of what the rest of the show was lacking.
With the new stuff, a friend pointed out, there is not enough Boyd in it. It looked for him as if there wasn't a lot for him to do.
I realized with Jimmy Cliff, that if it's not a little bit of Marley, I'm really not a big reggae fan. Sorry to be complainy... I've just seen better shows.

Probably closer to a 3 but I'll give it a 4. Pretty surprised how many empty seats and general admission was sparse. The crowd around us was good and into it but why leave during the set closer? Boyd was on fire and of course Carter was great. Stephan was really into the new songs. Improv jam really worked going into Halloween. I was suspect but Drunken Soldier really was great live.

Great show I loved it! I don't see how anyone can complain about a DMB show...but regardless did anyone else think that the "Country Blues Improv" sounded just like Pride and Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughn?

User: whygohome?

Decent setlist, pretty bad crowd and acoustics though. First time seeing DMB indoors and I thought it would be louder and more intense but not really. Probably the worst DMB show I've seen, but my girlfriend was with me and it was her first concert ever, and she had a blast so it gets points for that.

Drunken Soldier, Christmas Song, Two Step, and Hallobillies made the show. Echoes muddied the sound quality significantly. Could hear Boyd's violin basically only when doing his few solos. He did seem to be having fun.
