31st show. In relation to my expectations coming into the show - ie. all of the previous setlists and reviews thus far from the tour - I was absolutely blown away. While Louisiana Bayou isn't on my top 50 songs I want to have open a show, my doubts were quickly silenced by the funk and energy the song brought and the amazing jam by Buddy. The 8 tour debuts were a delightful surprise with Fistender, Typical, and the Stone being absolute stunners. I was also surprised by Everyday, a song I can usually live without, as that song was a strong play as well. PNP-->Rapunzel is a bit overdone for me, but at the same time I cant complain whenever it closes out a set. Sister was fine. At this point I was getting a bit greedy and wanted a rare dave solo song (i know, i know, greedy). Watchtower was great and I admittedly always enjoy that closing a show. Overall, from an expectation to experience standpoint, this was a top 5 show for me, but we'll see how it stands up over time. The 3.5 hour drive from Minneapolis was well worth it! Hopefully they keep this up the rest of the tour.

30th show tonight. Completely surprised and had a great time. Probably top 5 show I've been to.

Pretty good show. Had a good mix of old songs new songs. Was it me, or did Dave's voice sound a little "auto-tune-ish" half way through the show?

I wish we could do ratings other than whole numbers. This would be about 4.25 to 4.5 for me. I had low expectations, but this show was great. My first show with Buddy & he was pretty good, though I miss the violin. Much better than they sounded when I saw them "The Night Before" the super bowl (first show without Boyd). Solid start, but show really got going for SMTS->ASTB->Too Much. Was really surprised to catch The Stone, Recently, & Typical. Nice run to end the show with Everyday & Rapunzel, & I enjoyed the Watchtower with Stairway Encore. A few duds (Samurai Cop, Why I Am, Funny, You & Me, Sister)...but overall a lot better set & energy than I thought we'd get in Des Moines.

It had been way too long... First indoor show, first show in nearly 8 years, and it did not disappoint. Great energy from Dave and a great setlist sampling a little of everything.

this would have gotten 5 stars but i prefer outdoor venues. having said that, the drive of 15 minutes from my house was a plus. my 8 year olds first DMB show! :)

Tight show! Personal favorites were "Big Eyed Fish", "Typical Situation" and "All Along the Watchtower" with a snippet of "Stairway to Heaven" to close out the show!! Also love the addition of Buddy on keys! He's an animal.

Overall, extremely satisfied with the set. 8 tour debuts. Big Eyed Fish, So Much/Too Much, Recently and You & Me were highlights. Mixing in the last verse of Stairway to Heaven into Watchtower was also a treat. I hope they continue that. Songs off the new album are evolving nicely live. Could do without PNP --> Rapunzel...kinda over it. Buddy is a monster on the keys and a welcome addition to the fam. Don't even miss Boyd...there...I said it.
