One word.....HALLOWEEN!!! Man, this was the last show of the tour, they hadn't been to Phoenix in 5 years, last night of my honeymoon, and they ended it with an EPIC Halloween. I seriously could not contain myself. I went nuts. Sat in VIP with co-workers. They learned a little more about me that night. Lol. Super epic for me.

Thunder. Lightning. Rain. Solo Snacks. The most important part of a show isn't the songs that were played, it's the memories that went with them. A lively crowd in the lawn, all of us both amazed and a little terrified of the heavy rain and lightning, embraced the moments of this show moreso than any other that I've been to. While I've certainly been to better shows in terms of setlist, venue (Not to knock the Ak-Chin Pavilion, even if the parking was a mess), "rarity" or whathaveyou; this show just kinda felt...different. The majority of the songs were very good, and all of them were played with a great enthusiasm that isn't oft seen at the end of tours. A show that I feared would be mailed in, ended up being nothing like that at all. It's not the BEST show I've ever seen, but I certainly won't remember one for the experience as fondly as I did this one.

Took my 9 year old daughter to this show - her firs. It will be hard for me to ever see the band differently after this hot and sweaty night. Having her on the rail, they interacted with her all night long while she danced other favorites. I felt the night was missing a few specific songs (like Last Stop, and OSW would have been nice tonight) but overall, it was a great end to a great tour.

This show was amazing, there was a monsoon brewing in the background, the band was amazing and they were serving Dreaming Tree wine in the VIP...and I was there with my oldest DMB buddy!

First off just glad to be able to see them in Phoenix!!! Show highlights: Dave on the keys for death on the high seas, Boyd absolutely tearing it up on LIOG, Dave screaming his lungs out on Halloween. Davespeak gems of the night: "There's a sign for solo snack up there....how much for one French Fry?" "So uh, this song is a little bit new and it's about everything or also it's maybe not."

Really enjoyed the acoustic set this year. Electric was hit and miss. Played quite a few classics and overall thought the energy was high. Surprised by Spaceman into Cornbread which worked well. Encore was great with the band giving it their all for the last show of the tour. Overall one of the better shows I've seen.

Very special night for me. First night on the rail in pit, first time seeing the 'last stop\ on the tour, first time seeing then in PHX. I got to the show many hours before the gates opened. I stood through 105 degree heat, but met some awesome people along the way. I don't really care that there were a decent amount of repeats. I had a great time and I feel that the band was high energy and very on. The acoustic set was awesome and the electric set was tremendous. Even songs like Sweet, If Only and Belly Belly Nice I was okay with. Death on High Seas was a great acoustic opener - very dark sounding and Dave sounded great on it - I feel like the crowd was into it. The jams were outstanding. The encore of Two Step >> Halloween was great (was originally Space Between, Two Step).

A touch of rain kept us cool while we danced on the "mini Gorge" hill, enjoyed the music, and caught a lightning storm on South Mountain off in the distance . It was such a beautiful evening and we got to enjoy it with some of our Lew Crew friends!

One of the better final nights I've seen. Wasn't my favorite set list, but they were really on. It was probably my 32nd to 34th show and I've never seen them give each other so many fist bumps. The new songs (High Seas, Little Red Bird, etc.) don't really do much for me but they were fine. I was not expecting to hear Jane given they just played it. Would have preferred the encore from Irvine, but they killed Halloween. I can't hardly put into words how insane Boyd was during LIOG. Fantastic. No matter how many times I see them I come away with 2 thought. 1) how the hell can you do that with a violin, and 2) Carter is simply amazing. The dude is 57 and he was playing like he was 27! Dave was quite chatty all night which usually means good times for everyone. The crowd was so happy to see the boys. Too bad we didn't get any Lovely Ladies. I was impressed at how many stuck it out on the lawn despite the lightening and rain. Good return to PHX. It was way too long a wait. Please come back soon, DMB.

I would give it 3 stars, started slow but finished strong with Lie in Your Grave, Jane's Song, Jimi, Two Step & Halloween!

Fun, fun show, in spite of few options for pre-show partying. Attended w/ daughter and future son-in-law, and B&W, of course. So much fun! Crowd were obviously happy to have DMB back, and the guys took the energy and ran w/ it -- super!

Hanley and his work buddy with shit faced chick who kept wanting to leave early. Awesome time! Hanley lives like a pig and the fact that he brings home hot bitches and they want to not only stay but come back simply defies physics. Hanley's reasoning: I know how to use it man.
