Solid show. Acoustic set was fantastic. Dreaming Tree was a really nice treat. The band played great and seemed to be having a blast.

The Greek Theater was a great smallish venue with super nice fans all hanging out together. I was in the pit about 8 rows back from the front and could see so well and could see all the cues the guys were giving each other. My first show as I live in Hawaii and have a hard time getting across the ocean at the right time for a DMB concert. Come on DMB! You've got to come over for some aloha! The set list was great, played so many of my favorites although there isn't a DMB song I don't like! Sister was especially poignant as I was there visiting my sister and enjoying the concert with her. I threw a lei up to Dave on the stage but I don't think he saw! How sad! Fans were so great and chill! I can seriously see why all my new friends I made there have been to 44 shows or 56 shows or a friend Scott said 120 shows! He was predicting what songs Dave might play and got a lot right! I was so excited as it was my first show ever and in HEAVEN! Thanks DMB! Love you!

Great kickoff of a three night run at the Greek, one of the great venues. The lovely ladies, first minarets for me in sixteen years, after a Dave and Tim bartender opener.

Big Eyed Fish, Minarets and Seek Up were incredible. I really enjoyed this show. Sat in the last row of the seating and it was the perfect spot for not getting walked all over.

I give the show 4 stars overall - 5 stars for the acoustic set and 3 stars for the electric set. Awesome acoustic set list with good energy and nice song choice. The electric portion featured a unique set list, which is always appreciated, but Dave lost the crowd at times with his extended sort of asymmetric jams. He chose a more obscure set list that the critical Dave fan would enjoy, but overall the set lacked rhythm, continuity and liveliness. It was hard to get into it emotionally.

Bartenter, Two Step, and LIOG helped make a nice opening set. Great opening run of BEF, Minarets, and finally The Dreaming Tree got the electric set off to a great start. Unfortunately it was pretty much downhill after that except for a strong Seek Up and Jane. Encore left most of the crowd satisfied, but not too excited...Hoping the rest of the weekend brings a few more "wow" moments; especially the encores.

Set list was on the rare side and that was a good thing. I thought they had great energy. Sledge Hammer was the icing on the cake.

Great show!!! I only took issue with the fact that he said the last time that DMB played the Greek, Leroi was still with us and he wasn't. He had just died like a week before and one of the Greek shows was on his birthday. I remember it clearly, it was sad and celebratory. They sounded great last night. Great setlist.

I give this show a total 5 on content on song selection and band energy and a -2 on venue. The lawn section at the top sucks so badly words cannot describe it. It's so effing steep we could barely enjoy the show - sitting was sliding, and dancing. Forget about it. Sucked. We'll be going at 3 today! The show however was awesome.. I can see where people who are recent fans would not have enjoyed it as much, bit for those who've been around awhile, holy cow. Bartender to open, awesome, I know it's gonna be a good show.. TwoStep acoustic and in the third a lot?? Sweet!! Big eyed Fish to open the second set - cool Minarets? - it's been 10 years since I last heard it live. I've heard Halloween more times... Dreaming tree- yes! Yes! Yes ! Seek Up?!? Now you are fuckin wit me!! Band had great energy and the format was nice. Love DMB! Looking forward to tonight!
