Great show. One of the best Ants I\'ve heard. Encore was strong!

After the Cincy show last night, my Maryland buddy and I drove up to New Paris OH to see a friend of his. Then we headed to Cleveland to check-out the Rock and Roll HOF for a couple of hours before the show. Blossom is an awesome-looking venue! So great to hear Pig and Drive In Drive Out...and the encore was fantastic (SMTS -> ASTB -> Too Much fake -> Billies -> Warehouse)! The next morning we checked-out the Pro Football HOF in Canton, before my buddy dropped me off at the Cleveland airport to fly back to Nashville. All in all, a great DMB weekend!

meh. PM-->Satellite should be buried. Sucks the energy out of the crowd after the fun Crash opener. After that, I never really got into the show. I thought the band had good chemistry, the crowd was pretty much into it, but the song selection wasn't doing it for me. No flow.

I have been to PNC and Hartford so far and I think Blossom is my #1 show so far this tour. After looking at other set lists earlier in the Tour I beleive this one is the strongest. Missing a solid opener (DDTW, Bartender). Drive in Drive out was SOLID, and the entire middle of the set was VERY good.

Pig and Stolen Away... the wife\'s favorites in the same show is unheard of. 5 to 6 song encore... Ants, Billies and Warehouse always at the top of my list. Odd flow but great none the less

Unique list...presented in a unique way. Started slow (but not bad) without many long jams or solos. Every time a new tune started it felt like a surprise. Was expecting the new tunes early...that never happened. Lots of old ones they dusted off. Good energy, had a different feel and flow than most shows but definitely thought it was excellent. Ants and Proudest Monkey were surprisingly good. I was flummoxed by the set break at 10:15. Threw my hands up in frustration after only fifteen songs. And then came a 5 (6) song encore that never happens...4 star show, and sound at venue was better than most....though Blossom is hard to get to and impossible to get out of.

Really great start to the show. The ants version was sooo good. Boyd\'s solo was sooo bad ass. The band stopped playing and Boyd just jammed out as the crowd started clapping to the beat. Great new version. When he went into Warehouse I went nuts. Man what a great 2 days of shows. See you in Columbus!!!

Another solid show. Got Drive In Drive Out so I was happy. A good blend of the two nights.

It was a pretty predictable show. I did enjoy the uptempo and good energy from the band. So many people walked off on the new songs. I do enjoy the songs very much. The encore was extremely long and seemingly made up for a shorter show.

Minarets was great. First time to see Stolen Away live. Big fan of YMDT. Strange set break, but solid encore run with So Much/Bridge/Tripping/Warehouse. Not sure why they cut 4 songs from official set list though - missed Jimi and Rapunzel.

Some rarities (but the trade off was not getting to hear some of your favorites).

This was my 18th show, it has easily ranked into my top 3! Was hesitant where the show was going to go with Crash being the opener, but no need to worry. Such a great mix of sings...great to hear Proudest Monkey, So Damn Lucky, Drive In Drive Out, Pig. Best You Might Die Trying and Ants I've heard so far. Boyd was the focus of this show and he really shined. The encore was just...well epic. Anxiously awaiting to see them again in Burgettstown.

A very interesting night with an unpredictable setlist. Pig and Drive In Drive Out were unexpected treats. Ants was on fire, an incredible hoedown jam that had the crowd going wild. Encore was so fun...no one saw Warehouse coming after Billies and the segue was seamless. Set started slow though.

This was an incredible show. All around, one of the best I have ever been too and probably the best encore that I have seen. The band was having a really good time.

Overall solid show. Fantastic encore. The only down part of the show was the new songs. Ants hoe down was awesome

Solid show and the boys sound really tight so far this tour. Minarets! Pig! Drive In Drive Out! Damn did Boyd light the stage up on Ants! I\'m really diggin the new songs. Bob Law is super funky and Dave does a nice job of hitting the prerecorded button on the keyboard. It was my 36th show and it was amazing hearing Everyday and getting to sing Hani, Hani with you beautiful people. Can\'t wait for Columbus!

DMB shows are like sex: even when they're bad, they're still pretty good. This show was probably the weakest DMB show I've seen. Crash as an opener, with Proudest Monkey next? I don't if someone had the flu or what, but I can't remember a show starting with such low energy. It wasn't until the fourth song, DDTW, that things started to pick up. DDTW really should have been the opener. Death on the High Seas really brought things back down, when he should have sustained the energy level more. Good song, but bad placement. YMDT and Minarets were nice highlights, but Stolen Away? They should stow it away. DIDO was another highlight, and Ants, which closed the main set, was one of the better ones I've heard in a while. The encore made up for the lackluster main set, with a nice Billies -> Warehouse, which was a bit of a fooler: everyone thought the show was over after Billies. All in all, well played, but far from the best show ever. Better song selection and placement would have improved it.

Really slow first hour, but the band really picked it up after that. Great, long encore, but it was expected with Ants ending at 10:20

One of the worst shows I\'ve been to out of 60+. Incredibly slow start for the first half and even the songs in the last half couldn\'t save the set. Finally have been to one too many shows.

Ants was awesome. Death on the High Seas and You Might Die Trying were also very good. Awesome encore, but it almost had to be to make up for the surprise \"Thank you Good Night\" after Ants at 10:20pm. Definitely the shortest show I\'ve seen in years.
