Was confident asserting that N3 couldn't top N2--never been so happy to be so wrong. Have been chasing BOWA for over a decade and finally caught up to it. Boyd was unreal on LIOG, we're talking Live in Chicago caliber, maybe even elevated a notch beyond that. Additionally OSW, Recently, Pig, Crush, Grey Street! And, almost no crap. Was pleasantly surprised with the two full band encore songs as I'd resigned myself to another predictable Watchtower sendoff. Glad, yet again, to be off the mark.

Parenthetical prediction: To top the N1 play/N3 reprise from 2012, the band opens with LIOG reprise on N1 next year. It's been played two years in a row, so hitting the reprise next year and skipping the meat of the song will be understandable.

Unreal. Night 2 blew my mind, and then Kashmir in Night 3 happened. Add BOWA, LIOG, Pig, PNP>Rapunzel closer...unreal.

1st time Kashmir! Would've eclipsed N2 but encore a bit mellow and uneventful given the festive nature of the crowd after the set.

grey street to close when I would have put good money on it being watchtower makes this show a 4 instead of a 3. love watchtower, but boy is it overplayed, especially if you are dedicated to the band and see them at every possible chance.

About a week before the show I was hanging out with my girlfriend and listened to Kashmir by Zeppelin and I looked at her and said "this would be an awesome song for DMB to cover - let's make a Kashmir sign to hold up at the Friday show and maybe they'll play it Saturday or Sunday." Well we never made the sign, but they played it. I don't think Dave can really pull off the vocals much better than an average Joe singing it in a karaoke bar, because who the hell can really sing like Robert Plant? But it was so awesome to see it anyway and his voice cracking all over the place made it unique and very cool. Water/Wine was not a tease, if it wasn't the whole song it was at least a partial - no idea why it's listed as a tease. Great day overall starting with running into Rashawn at our Cave B wine tasting

This show was a great night three show, energy was up and down although I feel that if it had either one of the first two nights encores it would be the undisputed best show of the tour. All in all I got to hear a bunch of great songs and the band continues to amaze with how good they sound!

Another really nice show from start to finish. I wasn't blown away by Kashmir like some people so there weren't any "take my breath away" moments for me. I don't love Rapunzel and Grey Street as closers for a set or encore. However, still a really nice show with lots of gems mixed in. I thought the first 6 songs were killer. I just love seeing BOWA in concert. Recently into Water/Wine was sweet and Crush was fun as always!

Really unique setlist. Band had a lot of fun with Kashmir - very well played. Listening to this band play quietly, like at the end of LIOG or Lover just blows your mind. Not a huge encore, but a perfect end to the weekend. And getting a chance to say "thanks" to Ashley for loaning us all her husband and his band was a perfect cap on the weekend!

N3 was a perfect end to the 3 day weekend and I always say you have to go to all 3 nights, I could be wrong but I don't think we heard one repeat. OSW opener was a great way to start the show and the horns were on it. BOWA is a rarity as was the water/wine tease on recently. LIOG was long and Boyd was all over it. They did not finish so I expected that in the encore but no. I'm a fan of gaucho so I liked that and the zeppelin cover was fucking unreal. First time full band and it was a treat. Lover lay down was a nice was to mellow out and Jeff was fantastic. The next 3 songs were all played perfectly Pig, Crush and Snow Outside. Rapunzel closer brought down the house and the 3 song encore was a perfect way to end the show some devil was predictable but the other 2 were not. Overall a good 3 day show and worth the 800 mile trip. See ya next year.

Capped off my first weekend at the Gorge..what an unbelievable place. Really good show but just too many repeats from my N2 at Alpine for me personally. Highpoints: BOWA, LIOG, Lover Lay down, Crush, Pig, and The Kashmir cover was really cool. My one complaint (I know i may sound greedy) I just wasn\\\'t thrilled with the last 5 or so songs of the show and personally I just hate seeing You and Me in the encore. All in all, one of the best weekends of my life and I hope I can make the 23 hour drive from Minneapolis again next summer

AMAZING!!!! Unbelievable set and energy the entire night. Even the mellow tunes carried such force there was never a letdown. Met some new friends, Gavin and Brittany who really wanted to hear "Grey Street" for their unborn daughter names Grey and Matt whose success with his girl was dependent on the playing of "Pig". All were rewarded along with everyone else in attendance.

I could barely handle how amazing this show was - the best of any I've been to. Didn't think they could top N2 but they did. LIOG solo by Boyd was best I think I've heard him play; Kashmir was intense; Snow Outside was gorgeous; Gaucho was fun; BOWA was fun...I mean, just excellent.

I really loved this show. Kashmir was AWESOME. The only complaint I have, was that I felt the encore could've been a little better. I kinda felt like the encore from tonight and the encore from friday night could have switched, and it would have been more typical to how the shows roll out at the Gorge. Either way, I was at all 3 shows, so I don't really have any room to complain. I was just expecting All Along the Watchtower or even a replay of Halloween from Friday would have been pretty sweet.

My favorite of the three nights. Kashmir was unreal and a guy next to me actually called it before the band took the stage. Lover Lay Down was great and Water into Wine after Recently was amazing. Never thought I would see that segue. I had a great time this weekend and hopefully I will make it back someday!
