Great way to start off the summer! At beginning of show it was pouring, but as Dave appeared the rain miracuously dissappered. I turned around to look at the lawn area and a GIANT rainbow bowed across the sky! What seems funny is dave sounded as good here as all his live cd's. It's amazing how good this band is live. As far as song selections, Dave played a great combo of all his cd's including pantala naga pampa, rapunzel, lie in our graves, tripping billies etc
Today's show was somewhere in the neighborhood of my 25th show (think i've heard OSW at everyone). I've seen better, seen worse. I have to start off by saying the undercover's roaming the parking lot arresting those enjoying a pre-show cocktail was unbelievable. Major disappointment.
Highlights included LIOG, Big Eye Fish and Digging a Ditch. I think DDTW would have been a nice opener considering the steady down pour for most of the show. I don't believe he played anything from Everyday, which most ppl would be happy about, but not this guy. Throw in some If I Had it all or What You Are.
I'm jealous of those going to today's show in Pittsburgh, you guys really know how to bash it up.
This was my first DMB concert. Iwas able to take my two Boys who are 11 yrs. and 9 yrs. old. All had a huge blast. I saw the Greatful Dead 21 times in a row and I would rank this to the top
After 4 summers of great shows, I finally saw one that left me wanting more. Not that this was a bad show, it just wasn't my favorite, and certainly not what I've come to expect from DMB in Columbus. It might have been because the obscene traffic caused us to arrive late (we were walking through the lot during Crash), but I just felt something was missing.
I definitely enjoyed the new tunes, looking forward to finding them online or when the new CD comes out. Glad to hear: Crush, LIOG, Tripping Billies, Stay, JTR. Would have liked to hear: #41 (been a while since I've heard it live), Grey Street, Two Step, and anything else that would have had them playing longer (note to Dave: the noise ordnance kicks in at 11pm - feel free to play right up to it! Rashawn was amazing all night, expecially on Smooth Rider.
Still, an OK DMB show is better than no show at all!
I'll start by saying that i'm not a huge DMB fan. I went to the concert on the advice of a friend. But I'll say this, they can put on a hell of a show. My friend says the performance of "Digging a Ditch" was the best he's ever seen. I was blown away by the "So much to say/ Too much" combo. But I'd say my favorite of the night was "Stay". I was a little upset he ended at 10:30. Or that he didn't play "Two step." It's was probably the shortest concert I've ever been to. But none the less it was worth my fourty bucks.
i think dave was tired for this show. After doing 2 kick ass shows over the weekend(which i went to) and then doing DTE the night before, I think he was trying to just play and get out. He seemed very tired and bloated!
