I thought it was a really solid show. They played a lot of their more \"popular\" songs which was to be expected considering they haven\'t been in CBus in 6 years. I do prefer outdoor venues, but I really didn\'t mind the Arena vibe. The crowd noise was locked in, and i thought the crowd seemed really into it from my vantage point on the Floor. My 30th show...I give it a solid B.

Mercy and Warehouse were highlights.

The band\'s energy is definitely not the same as it is in outdoor venues. The setlist was great...for the fair-weather fans. =/ I could do without ever hearing Satellite again, BUT it was seeing DMB live for the 45th-ish time, so I won\'t complain.

This was my 30th time seeing them since 2006. First time seeing them indoors, and I definitely like outdoor venues more. That being said, the sound quality was still really good. To be honest I was pretty disappointed with the setlist. 7 of the songs played were also played at Blossom. That put me off. The pep talk before Mercy was nice, and you could tell he meant every word he said. My highlight was definitely Recently, many may disagree but I love that one. Encore was meh, would have liked to hear Rapunzel earlier in the show. I was supposed to go to the Burgettstown, PA show the next day and ended up not going. Boy do I regret that.

Great show by the band, they played a lot of more widely known songs which we expected because they haven't been to Columbus in a couple years. Had great seats and a great night.

Good show, they seemed like they played forever. Was hoping for more of a \"rare\"song. We did get Sugar Will though. So sick of hearing Too Much and Jimi Thing. Encore was solid.

The setlist wasn\\\\\\\'t bad as a lot of people are saying it\\\\\\\'s just that there was nothing special, and a lot of songs that have gotten a ton of play this year. Really good Mercy and Crush. Nice to see Recently back, and I enjoyed the full Too Much. Encore wasn\\\\\\\'t stellar.

More crowd participation would've been nice. Lots of people on their cellphones. Jimi--> Sexy MF was great except no one was ready for it besides us where we were.

loved the setlist. Dave spoke about the recent shootings and Mercy seemed appropriate after

I\'ve seen DMB shows that were so good they transcend time and space, and I\'ve seen at least one that was really garbage (8/20/07). This was right in the middle. Solid show, but nothing really blew me away. My 15th show since 2000, and my first time seeing them indoors. I prefer outdoors, but if they come back to Nationwide Arena I won\'t be deterred from going.

Hit double digits tonight and for the first time I can say I didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t hear a song I haven\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t heard before. It took a little bit for the crowd to get into the show but once it happened the place was rocking! Encore could have had something a little more but still a solid show and set list.

I hear you powerade haha. It took over 30 shows before i saw ones where I didn\'t see something for the first time. But times are different. Recently makes this show for me. Only lke the 3rd time in 60ish shows I\'ve heard that one and it was excellent. I really enjoyed this set, you know, considering it isn\'t like 2004. Solid, and the band seemed on and into it, which I was worried about coming up here.

My perspective was a little jaded because they had played seven of the first eight songs at Blossom earlier this tour. "Recently" on was pretty decent though and I'm not a Jimi hater but I will be if they play it tonight when we're out at Starlake. lol.

Overall okay show. Recently was great. Opening run looks bad on paper but the guys were really into it. Best and longest version of mercy ever by a wide margin. Took a friend to his first show and had a good time.

The first DMB concert of the summer was a good start. We heard some good jams!

Great set, good run of songs at beginning and end of show. Jimi Thing Sexy MF solid close to the set. Encore was decent, not a huge fan of Space Between but Rapunzel was good.
