The Stone and Drunken Soldier were worth the price of admission.

It was great to hear lots of old stuff, but I really did want to hear some more AFTW material. The video that went along with The Song That Jane Likes was awesome.

Went to the show with Brian, Elena and Jessica. What a great set list. Highlights included the return of The Idea of You, The Stone, The Song that Jane Likes, So Right, and Drunken Soldier. Caught a drumstick straight out of the air from Carter!

First show in Dallas. Crowd was decent, and it definitely got pulled in by the band's energy by the end of the show. The setlist avoided lulls and the show really prospered as a result.

2nd show for my 3 yr old son. Went with the pregnant wife and father-in-law too. Carter called my son up to the stage and gave him a pair of drumsticks and a cymbal!!!

Wow. That was my third DMB show and by far the best. They blew me away with the set list this time and their sound was impeccable.

They're off to a good start this year, i'm tempted to travel somewhere to see them again for this tour, it was that good.

"The Idea of You" made this show totally worth it. I took a friend to his first DMB show and we had great seats and it was a great night.

Great set list, I don't mind the new album (AFTW) but I was glad to see it not over played.. The old stuff always makes for a good night. Got to hear a lot of songs for the first time!

Nice solid show. Band sounded great....uptempo setlist. Who can complain?

Dallas was once again better than Houston... Highlights were Big Eyed Fish opener, PNP>Rapunzel, Warehouse, Rooftop, and Drunken Soldier. It was good hearing The Idea of You again too... Also the videos were pretty awesome this year...really like The Song That Jane Likes storyboard, the new Eh Hee (monsters crawling out of babies heads), as well as the eyeball Squirm video (know they used it last year too...but I'm happy it stuck around). The show started strong, and was overall a very solid performance. I don't want to complain, but wish I could hear a few more from AFTW between the two nights.

Sat on the left side, second level, right in front. Could sit and enjoy show or dance. What a GREAT setlist. Holy cow. Can't complain. Friends in the parking lot gave Steven a keychain after we bought their wood firedancer sign.n later saw them dancing in front of us. Good, good, time!!!!

the use of the digital screen behind them adds to a dave show more than ever. I've only been to 2 live, but have seen plenty and its just beautiful. Plus the moving of light rig during songs, fun to watch as well...now for dave. 2nd night of the 2013 tour, and the band sounded pure, rested and absolutely amazing!

Epic. 10' from the stage in the pit. Best combination of set list, phenomenal tix and great jams and energy. That was one badass show

Good energy, nice set list. Good way to start off the first weekend. Would have liked to hear a few more new songs but it's all good. Played some good classics.

Dave was feeling it, I loved it. I am a bad reviewer- I love them ALL. I have only been to one show that I thought they may have been a bit run down and even that was a GREAT show

Dallas was a good show. Squirm and Water are always welcome, but Rooftop and Stone really set the tone for the rest of the show. Rooftop played two nights in a row and sounds very good. Crush can go either way any given night, but they truly crushed it in Dallas and it was a highlight. Granny and Jane in same night also very nice. They pulled off Drunken Soldier live quite nicely. If I have a complaint, not sure why we needed What Would You Say two nights in a row, but overall this was a nice one-two combo between Houston and Dallas.

AH-MAZE-ING Upgraded to pit and what a show to decide to do that. A top 5 list from the night includes about 8 songs and just a great show all the way around...may be the best one I have seen to date. Can't wait for SPAC even more now.

Out of 32 shows, this is in my top 7 shows. What made it more special was that it is was in Dallas! We usually don't get setlists like this in DFW. We typically will have to travel the the Gorge or the East coast to get a set like this. All time favorite song - The Stone! Wicked version! Thank you DMB for bringing it! Jane, come on! Excellent time, never a dull moment in the show! 5 stars!

May in DFW. Beautiful weather last time it poured. Great high energy set. Best performance of Crush I've heard in years. Idea of You was a pleasant surprise as was BigEyed Fish

Sweet old school set and the closing with Shake You Like a Monkey was awesome! Humidity blows here though. We were in town for something else and didn't realize Dave was in town. Didn't think I'd see my first show of his this summer till July, nice surprise. A bit of an early start, we missed a few songs.

This show speaks for itself. Just incredible from start to finish. This was my 18th show and finally got the stone! Jane, granny, warehouse encore, drunken soldier is an awesome addition. Could not believe the little red guitar ended up being idea of you, so glad to hear that again. Epic
