Don W from Dallas, Texas
Bad sound, long jams that didn't flow well into the next song. They covered sledge hammer and fly like an eagle...really??? They could have replaced those 2 songs with Dancing Nancies and Ants Marching, at least it would have been his stuff. I've see a dozen of his concerts and this one goes down as the worst.

BETHEL WOODS CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Going threw the motions. No opening act. Instead this recorded voice of the rules of the amatheater. Thought dave would come out early. Nope 25 mins late. Thought dave would of said something about the delay but nothing. Odd pauses between some songs . Seemed like dave just looked at the band like what do you want to play. Ross was singing backup a few times. When they showed him on the big screen . He looked like a kid who's mother made him sing for his grand parents. Dave has not been to bethel in years counted the days till the concert. Left early.
Jack from Chicago IL
Flew in from Chicago to go to the show with my sister. First Dave show of the year 8 rows back Center. Seen them a bunch at Alpine & northerly Island. Boyd not being there drastically changed the entire sound of the band and songs- especially warehouse & nancies. I agree 100% with my guy from Indiana. The band was flat and it was obvious the crowd was not into the new stuff. Band beef seems likely Dave and Carter were the only ones interacting with one another. The fan demographic has changed and I Think that’s how the band wants it. Bummer

WHAT WAS THAT?
Wow....I’ve been to dozens of Dave shows and this was by far the worst one. Awful! What was that setlist? No energy. Crowd was basically asleep because the songs were so bad, jams too long, and overall boring. Really disappointing.

DMB FAILS AND SO DOES DTE
Was really disappointed in the play list and was hoping to hear at least "Crash". Left at 10:00 because we were so bored. Dave doesn't seem to care too much about his fans...very little interaction. As for DTE: they should re-name the lawn seats section because there is barely any lawn left. It's all dirt. Dirt seats would be more accurate. There are a few patches of grass on the far right and left but not a good view of the stage. Probably not going back this year; I'd rather listen to Pandora.
Henry from Portland, Oregon
Worst sound quality of any concert I've ever been to. Any energy in the crowd was completely deflated 30 mins in. Complete disappointment.
