Guest musicians were off the chain! You’ve gotta listen to jazz guitarist Mark Whitfield let it all out on Captain.

Quite possibly the best show I\\\'ve ever seen. The jams were insane, the setlist was fire. Dave and the entire band played to the venue and clearly wanted to be there. Happy to see them so happy.

My first show at MSG and the boys brought it! Good flow to this set. Loved the guest spots with the horns on WH/Jimi and Mark Whitfield on a super jammed out Captain. I’ve always wanted to see a Warren Haynes guest spot but didn’t want to get my hopes up from rumors. Was so excited when Warren walked out for Cortez and a unique Billies. (thought for sure it would be Jimi or Watchtower) Jeff absolutely ripped on this So Right. Best outro I’ve heard with Carter & Jeff locked in. Wish I could bottle the crowd energy in this building for other shows!

Best show I've seen in years. Band is having fun...they smile, dance and High FIve after songs. Throwback set list...love the Busted Stuff/Lillywhite Songs...although many don't seem to know them. Did Warren Haynes get even better on guitar?

Based on how many shows I have been to and also the great performances I have seen, I am always a tough critic. But some of the MSG shows I have seen have be epic. Maybe the fact that I was hoping and praying for Robert Randolph to come out all night kind of hindered it. I had about 3 or 4 goosebumps moments during the show. 5 is usually what makes it a 5 show for me. They kill it on one song and then go right into a bathroom break song. Encore was weak there were some mind melting moments like Warren Hayes and the ending of Jimi Thing. Overall a great show with a great friend with me. Just was missing that one or two really special moments that MSG is known for that could have made it really memorable. But I was pleasantly surprised I was still so in love with the band minus Boyd who\'s violin was always my favorite. Band sounded great and Dave was in amazing spirits. Excellent time in the big apple.

The guest performances tonight were just magic. Have heard Cortez w/Warren a few times and this might have been the best. Crowd was terrific, band was loving all the little musical nuances (like Stefan playing Blackbird in his Crush intro).

Absolutely blew the roof off!! Was hoping WH would show up and play Cortez; Billies was the icing on the cake. Energy kept picking up as the night went on. You owe it to yourself to listen to this show. Fantastic!!

A great first time seeing the band at MSG. Great seat, got to \"meet\" Warren (really I just high fived him as he watched some of the show), and of course CORTEZ

been to 35 shows and this was easily in my top five. dave was very animated throughout, lots of guests, nasty crush (esp rashawn), when im weary for the big fella (thought it was a debut but was second time played), warehouse was sick especially the intro, mark whitfield was awesome on captain, warren haynes coming out for cortez was unreal (big fella called it), chill jam to end cortez, tripping with warren was solid, extra horns on jimi was sick. they are in a great spot right now. playing awesome, having fun. i think they are better off without boyd. i think he was adding a negative vibe to the band. see you in boston on friday!

Captain was fantastic and So Right was a great E1. Otherwise there were a few solid moments like Cortez & Billies with Warren and a smoking Warehouse but there was a lot of bad runs and the show took a while to get itself moving, never really getting a solid flow.

Whereas I was in the 200 level last night, which was frustratingly underwhelming, I left this concert infatutated with the venue. We got to hear Captain, Crush, Crash, and Warren Haynes lit up some solos.

I mean warren Haynes, “cortez” and a full horn section and getting to hear John Faddis, really really great show. Sound was excellent and the energy was great. Went with Tracy saw Joanne and had some drinks at stout and cafe 31. Good times although I was left at the alter. Lol

Great show. The band was on fire and the guest appearances were incredible- especially WH. Only thing missing was the stone (make that another back to back set without hearing it).
