Best set out of my first 5 shows. Got my first Pig, 41, and Best of What's Around

In my 15th show I finally saw my first BOWA, YNK and Christmas song. Plus... Pig, Warehouse and an unbelievable Watchtower and some great jams on the new album songs. I\'ll put this show No. 2 all time behind SPAC \'08. Seats 18th row directly right of stage didn\'t hurt. GREAT night.

Great set. The band (mostly Dave) seemed tired. This was the last show of the year/tour, so I can definitely understand that.

Solid set. Would have liked to seen something slightly different in the encore, but stellar nonetheless. YNK,41,SDL,Warehouse,BOWA were the highlights for me. I think the set from Philly two years ago was a little better. But the crowd this year was way more into it.

My first tour closer, amazing from start to finish. Any time your favorite band plays your top 5 songs (YNK,Pig,PM,SDL,and Ants) its going to be a good night. I was especially happy to hear my first pig after getting screwed out of it at Hershey.

So Damn Lucky, #41, and Cornbread were super intense jams, and I like how the outro for Mercy changed a little since summer.

The only downside was the encore was predictable (called the whole encore 4 days ago), but after closing with Warehouse, Cornbread(seriously this was the Cornbread to end all Cornbreads) and then Ants? They could've closed with anything and it wouldn't have changed how great the night was.

Best show I've seen since 2000.

Amazing show! #82 for me. Loved hearing Best of What's Around, and You Never Know- a song that I've been waiting to hear for many years now! Crowd around me was real cool and Joe Lawlor on Corn Bread was a real treat. I absolutely love Drunken Soldier, and even though Watchtower isn't my favorite closer, I associate it with Christmas time and winter, so it was a nice nostalgic end to a great little tour. Can't wait to see what's next!

Very dissapointed with the typical watchtower. Really was hoping for last stop considering, LAST show on the tour AND the year. And i had a dream of maybe some linus and lucy by stealing a lumineer for the keys.

My 50th show, and holy shit, what a great one! The set list just didn't let up! I'd list highlights, but there are just too many. Their playing was so tight and passionate. Many of these songs I haven't heard in 6+ years (in a few cases 10-12 years) so it was incredibly special that my 50th would contain so many oldies. This show cracks my top ten, which is huge considering their regular rotation of songs these days.

Wow, I was expecting an amazing, blow-out show to close the tour and they went above and beyond. My number #1 and #2 wish list songs were Pig & Best of What's Around so I was dying inside. I could probably write a glowing review for each and every song. Cornbread with Joe Lawlor and Tim soloing back and forth was the tits. This was my 9th show and 5th one in the last 6 months and it was also the best I have ever seen. They just keep getting better and better. Woooo!

Great show! Awesome energy, esp. Pig, BOWA, #41, Grey St., Warehouse...etc...I felt the Earth shake during Ants! Great jams on Lucky and Mercy. All DMB fans should catch a show around this time of year to hear Christmas Song. Indoor crowd = so loud!

User: dru07

Firecracker of an opening, Seven + Belly Belly + You Never Know = Unreal! 41 was a pleasant little treat and Pig was delightful as always. So Damn Lucky is always great, love the outro jam. I believe it was during this tune that the crowd tried to sing \"Thank You ....\" and kinda ruined the vibe for me. It was cool to see the band aimlessly jam as Dave wandered the stage, and it seemed as if they might try to transition into \"Thank You.\" However, the jam was in a different time signature than the \"Thank You\" riff so the whole thing was a cluster. As for Cornbread, that song rocks BUT I felt like guest Lawlor was trying to upstage Tim and Dave on a few occasions during it. Also, the jam just got so loud at points that it was pure mush. Super fast electric guitar licks are cool and all, but when there is no clarity within the lines, you might as well just run the thing over with a bulldozer. Basically the show started off with a bang and slowly tapered out for me. Would have loved to see Tim go acoustic for Christmas Song and Carter sit it out but whatever. Ending with Watchtower is a serious NO in my book so that was unfortunate. If I wanted to hear cover songs, I would go see a house band. DMB has made Watchtower their own in many ways, but it\'s still a cover. Watching some aged mother molest a guy in his twenties for a Carter stick that was pried from her daughter\'s paws was rather entertaining though.

Terrific show! Would\'ve given it 6 stars if given the opportunity! The fact that this show and the Barclays show (12/21/12) have the same rating is a complete joke! Wells Fargo show blew Barclays show out of the water!

Great setlist, ok encore.. Best songs: Cornbread, Warehouse, Drunken Soldier and YOU NEVER KNOW!!! my only problem was the rude and very intoxicated fans of 40 + years of age, vomiting and throwing bottles on stage, barely missing Dave and Rashawn. I am 25 and that was my 29th show,Sure, I like to partake in adult beverages, but I dont make a fool out of myself such as some d-bags who give the city a bad name. Great show though! Can't wait till SPAC this summer!

nice show - YNK was a first for me. BOWA & PIG love those memories of 2006 my first show. I enjoyed MERCY this time better ending jam and no OOMH. BestGray Street ever!!! So much energy love the horns. My WH tx seats were real bad 2nd row from top but the group around was great everyone was standing all show even the top row. Woould have liked a shorter SDL and them adding Broken Things in the show.

Went to this show with Sarah Baughn (looks like Erin Andrews). Got free tickets in a suite through Fred Shabel (Mom called and got the tickets for me). Show was good. Got to hear Pig, been waiting to hear that for a while. Got very drunk. Missed the Lumineers opening. Ran around looking for a poster and didnt get one. Ended up making out a lot and being agressive (not a good thing). Got some amazing Mexican Food afterwards and went to Florida the next day.

Good show - nice mix of old and new... good energy! Guest guitar player was outrageous! I love the way these guys keep reworking the arrangements of the old songs - always creative and always outstanding! Well done boys - well done ! Also - props to Boyd for standing in the cold for almost 3 hours to shake every hand and hug (sometimes for an awkwardly long time) every single fan that came to greet him.

Again, disappointed with the intro and the lack of The Riff. Great to hear Drunken Soldier, best Cornbread I've ever heard, and Grey Street. Could have done without All Along the Watchtower as a closer.

This was the only show I saw this winter and I had a blast. The new tunes were fun, espeically Belly Belly Nice. Was surprised to see a few debuts pop up on the last night and glad to see it was YNK and Pig. Not sure next time I can catch the band and glad to have heard a very soluid show in Philly!
