Wasn't a show for me. One of my bottoms for sure. Love Tahoe! Dave was beat after the gorge. It showed

Great venue. The band played really beautifully. Setlist was BAD. Entire middle of show was mellow with a few exceptions and the show was short. I also agree with CARPH - dave doesn't have the vocal chops to do Kashmir justice.

I WANT to give it 2 stars... This was the first show of the tour for me (of 2). I was at a wedding last year at Shoreline and missed my Halloween bucket list song. I think I came in to this show wanting Halloween so bad, that I didn't really enjoy the rest of the show. When they played Ants in the encore, I was half-expecting them to segue into Halloween, I was so excited and then incredibly disappointed. Standing in this glorified parking lot kind of sucked... 2 days later, my feet still hurt. Granny was nice. I'm expecting an epic Shoreline show, even if the chances of them playing Halloween are slim.

Anyone know why they played here??? Standing on the asphalt all night was punishment.....small venue was nice but if you got a seat you were too far away ...if you stood it was easy to get up close. If it was your only show of the year it was enjoyable but I had just come the Gorge so basically nothing new. Dave does not have the voice for Kashmir so while the people around me were freaking out I new what was coming. The guest on the keyboards was great.....the band mailed that one in...too bad

The sheer joy experienced by the members of the band during this show was obvious to everybody close enough to see as Dave, Fonz, and Carter giggled their way through the night. One of my favorite parts of the band is seeing them blow their own minds. This was occurring continuously much of the show. Open to close they were on fire. Execution was nearly perfect save for some audio issues with the guest and Carter surprising Dave on Jimi by giving him a solo (It didnt go well, ha).I would take this show and its weak setlist over many of the ridiculous setlists I have seen. Of course, the answer to the question of whether or not the setlist could have been better is yes. 4 Stars

I was on the rail with my Mom so that was fun. I could see Dave close up. Set list wasn't the best.

I was thrown way off by this show. When I saw it come up on the tour list I thought that it might be a pretty special show especially it coming up right after The Gorge. I had visions of it being a type of a show where the diehards would be talking about it for years, reaching deep into the catalogue. The venue was great and I always love Nevada shows but it felt like it was supposed to be a greatest hits show - a mid set "Grey Street" I felt was the nail in the coffin on deciding that point - not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but it can leave you wanting more. It felt so short that when I looked later to see if it was only 17 songs I was shocked that they actually played 21. I really thought we'd get at least 1 ultra-rare gem like JTR, Crazy-Easy, or KKJ which they had played during the tour and was really surprised when we didn't - but what am I complaining about? We got Kasmir and Belly Full in the same show - that'll never happen again! Kashmir for the second night in a row was cool, especially since I told my girlfriend only a week before that I think the band should really cover that song because they have the right parts to do it. But I agree with another's post that Dave doesn't really have the pipes to pull it off. I mean I love the rendition but too many attempts at that song is going to rip his vocal chords out. I am giving 3 stars not because it was a bad show, but because 3 means average.

I agree the setlist was weak. I have seen most of these songs live too many times already. The band played great though and really seemed to be enjoying themselves. Crowd & venue great as well so I'll give it a 4.

Did not like the venue. Did not love the show. Couldn't get to California fast enough. Nevada has never been kind to me. I won't go back. This and Albany 2010 are in competition for my least favorite shows. This one might have Albany beat.

Great little venue, not a bad seat in the house. Highlight for me was jimmy, great live performance, also enjoyed belly full. Like others I wished for some unplayed songs or something to make the show very unique. Kashmir was cool (second time ever played). Great date night with my lovely wife!

everyone has pretty much nailed it...the band was in fine form if a little tired from gorge and i think playing the parking lot of a casino might have something to do with the lackluster feel of the show

This was my favorite DMB show until Tahoe in 2015. Great small venue behind Harvey's hotel (7500). Not a bad spot in the place. Smoke from forest fires did not dampen the spirits of band or fans. Gary Clark jr. was great. DMB covers are the best. Kashmir absolutely rocked as hard as Zeppelin did it! Convenience of venue to lodging is unmatched except maybe in Las Vegas.

The boys weren't any more excited on this night to be on a parking lot in Nevada than I was. The air was polluted due to forest fires and the show was definitely not their best. Made a beeline afterwards for California.
