latish start and some good dave speak right off that bat - damn traffic! yellowstone! he was funny last night and seemed like he was in a good mood. Also, i liked that he told us, straight up - gonna start sow and build and i think thats what they did. Lot of classics, sure id like some more rare stuff but I'm not complaining. On to PNC today.

Potential was there for 5 star. However the trio of wtwe, oomh, smlam took that away quickly. Such a shame because the band sounds incredibly tight, played with plenty of energy and really gave it their all. The horn section adds such a great dynamic on top of tr and of course Boyd. It was great to see the band having so much fun.

I thought the acoustic set was the best part, especially so damn lucky. Show as a whole was top notch as well, up until Out of My Hands, which killed the crowed. It was great to hear Grey, Recently, WTWE and WWYS as well. I still think the crowd deserved Everyday, Crush or Stone. Halloween and Minarets don't hold a candle to any of those. I would have settled for BOWA or Stay. Nancies and Jimi were among the best I've ever seen. Tonight was show 27 for me, 28 tonight at PNC...summer is here people!

Started with pretty good seats, but ended up finding friends in the nosebleeds and crushing it in the rain.

It's been a while since I last saw the band, London a few years ago. From my perspective a great show, fantastic overall staging and light show which I'd not really seen with DMB before. Sound was great too which for Jones Beach is never a given. If I could go again this week I would!

Really great show. First time hearing #41 live and once we heard those chords for the electric opener my friend and I went nuts. Great encore too. Minarets and Halloween had so much energy, as always.

Finally heard When the World Ends live!! Plus a nice version of Dancing Nancies, Jimi Thing (with sexy m.f. outro), Halloween, Sister and Two Step.... I swear they just keep getting better and better live

I am shocked by a coupe of the reviews. This was a great show. People who knock down a show just because they do OOMHN spends too much time reading the boards and trying to be cool. It is slow and does cause people to sit down - but it would not be a good show if it was at 11 for the entire two hour set. Slow and down is necessary and makes the pops better. Hard to complain about a show where second set starts with 41, has a great Nancies, Warehouse and has Minarets, Halloween in the encore. Should have been a hardcore fans dream - but as Dave always finds out - not worth gearing to them as they will always give you a three.

Outstanding set. Boyd was front and center which was awesome.

Encore was not my favorite. Rest of show was good. Not as high energy as others, but I think that's because it was a Tuesday night. Weekend shows are always better.

Went to the concert with Raven, Melissa, and Marcos. I made passes for us, and we watched the second set from the Tour Guest Balcony on the side of the Stage. It was an awesome experience!

Great show. Band was at peak performance level - tight and strong. BUT they need to get rid of the two set thing in my opinion. It was cool last year (and still is, in lots of ways), but it was abundantly clear from this show that the acoustic set is just amazingly underwhelming relatively speaking. The main show was 10x better. There's just no need for it now that the novelty has worn off. Band was ABSURDLY great tonight, and 2nd set was phenomenal.

I don't understand why people are knocking this show either. This show was my upper-20th show, and I thought it was one of the best I've seen. To get Two Step, 41, Jimi, Minarets, Halloween, in addition to all of the other great songs, IN THE SAME NIGHT, I think is pretty awesome. I had a blast, I think the band was on point and playing super tight, and they seemed like they were having a blast. I had a great time, the weather was amazing. 5 starts from me!

Acoustic set not really necessary IMO. Electric was on point though! Some of the best transitions and energy I've ever seen from the band.

The band is just playing at such a high level at the moment. The setlist wasn't fantastic, but it had plenty of variation. The acoustic sets really balance out the evenings and build up well for the plugged in portion of the show. I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, but I've been seeing these guys since 96 and it's nice to have something new (even if it leads to a certain amount of predictability with the song selection). The venue now serves beer and lets you take that beer to your seat and watch the show, which is awesome/the way it should be. Snow Outside and Minarets were the standouts. My 39th. My mom's first.

Good acoustic set. Great crowd for it. Crowd was a bit lame as the night went on. Closed the show amazingly w Space Between, Minarets and HALLOWEEN (My 1st)

Nice acoustic Two Step. Nancies>Warehouse is always a nice combo. Great close with Minarets>Halloween. Decent vibe with a few loud drunks. The sound (directly behind the sound booth) was a little disappointing.
