First time at Merriweather since before the renovation for D&T in 2017. Eased into the night a bit for this tour but So Right and Crush really got the crowd into it. That Time of The Season came outta nowhere! Always nice to get firsts. DIDO and Say Goodbye made the show for me. Crash was a pleasant surprise in the E1 slot for only its 2nd play of the tour as well. Excited for my last show of the summer in Va Beach next week!

Excellent show! First time at Merriweather, for me. The people in pit were great. The band had a lot of energy. For some reason I always love either One Sweet World or Seek Up as the opening song, and we got them back to back. Got So Right for the second time and I was ecstatic! Drive In Drive Out was long overdue for me and Time of The Season was a sweet surprise! Its always a great night when you get Say Goodbye, a considerably rare one. Louisiana Bayou was hot as always since Buddy joined and it was great not having it as the closer. Lots of energy with the closer and encore although i thought they could've squeezed one more song in since it wasn't even 10:45 when they finished. All in all a very great night. Welcome back all!

Fantastic show from top to bottom. Crowd was thunderous. Band clearly feeding off the energy. Absolutely nothing for me to complain about here. One of the better shows I've been to in a long time.

Drive In, Drive Out BEFORE Say Goodbye = awesome. Time Of The Season rocked. Loving the extended Sweet outro with Buddy. Wonderful place to see DMB after the venue upgrades...

The first show at my new "home" venue was a very good one. I'm a big fan of MPP. It has a different feel than the majority of the summer tour cookie-cutter amphitheaters I've seen them play. Tailgating in a parking garage was odd, but other than that, I'd easily take MPP over Bristow if the DC area is only getting one show a tour, though I guess this is technically more Baltimore than DC. As for the show itself, it somehow took me 19 years and 57 shows to finally get my first DIDO, so that was a special highlight for me. My first Time of the Season since Red Rocks 2005, first Sweet since 2014, and first Gravedigger since 2012. Happy to hear The Only Thing, need more new DMB. Good distribution of songs from all band eras, with only Busted Stuff not getting represented I believe. Great venue, very good set, fun night!

The energy was awesome. Great show, made up for a mediocre Syracuse set.

Fantastic show! Mid set WIA, Billies! Rare show felt like the 3rd night of a 3 night stand.

The setlist was great, but the ENERGY was insane! The guys looked like they were having an absolute blast, and it was infectious (the good kind of infectious, not the pandemic kind).

I realize we come to Ants and nitpick but honestly, if anyone is coming out to these shows this summer and isnít having a great time, well, you need to check for a pulse. We should all be grateful that live music has returned! I caught both shows in Chicago and this one tonight. All three have been outstanding. The boys are playing like each show might be their last of the tour. Talk about leaving it all out there on the stage every night, with 3+ hours of music. We are truly blessed to live in the times of DMB. The venue did a pretty good job managing the first night of mandatory vaccinations as well. Perhaps itís just me, but the setlists this year all seem super interesting, and quite a departure from years past. Just went it seemed like we were going to get Walk Around the Moon and Singing From The Windows every night, and Sister in the E1 spot, they go come out and punch out a show like this. Highlights - OSW opener, Write a Song, Crash in the E1 position, mid-set Tripping Billies (with decent fiddle fill-in), Time of the Season, Sweet, Crush, Why I Am (as a long-standing local tradition), Ants (with decent fiddle fill-in), and a smoking Watchtower. Buddy came out of his shoes at the end Bayou. New song The Only Thing also rocks (finally a new song with some kick). And lastlyÖ the crowd. They didnít disappoint, singing their hearts out, eliciting a compliment or two from Dave. This was the first concert to which Iíve ever brought my kids (14 and 17), and they loved every minute, as did we. Good thing too, for as I looked around at the aging crowd, there were far too many sitting down for my taste. My only complaint continues to be the lack of fiddle, but I give the boys credit for trying and for not avoiding beloved songs where Boyd took center stage. Buddy is terrific, and a great addition, but Iíll hope they will pick up a fiddle player one of these days.

Solid show, lots of tour debuts or second plays. First ďTime of the SeasonĒ in person for me, which was nice. The energy for the close of Louisiana was insane and everyone genuinely seemed to have a great time. Logistically being the first show having to show VAX cards, or negative tests, really went off without a hitch. Overall great night.
