Awful sound quality in the lawn. They need to have actual real speakers throughout the venue and behind the crowd for the rear. How a concert venue has poor sound design and quality is completely beyond me and makes no sense. DMB set list was very mellow and lackluster. Dave played hard and so did he band but it just was not the best show by any means. And no Boyd or getting a replacement is a big mistake, DMB fans loved Boyd and the violin. Always love Dave and always will. Fix sound quality and the shows will be sooo much better!

2.0 star rating Bill from Jacksonville, Florida


Totally agree with Rob Jack and Steve, the band was flat, disinterested, and lacking enthusiasm. The void left by Boyd's absence cannot be filled by an organ. I think this is my last DMB show.

2.0 star rating John from Nashville, Tennessee


Not sure what the problem was but the vocal sound quality was very poor Saturday night. We were very disappointed in our experience. Not sure if it was an arena issue or Daves sound techs fault. We had good seat too...

2.0 star rating 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.

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.

If i wanted new music, I'd buy an album. When I go to a show, I want to SING and dance to songs I love! This was not the case last night (9-20-22). DMB played 3 songs that people knew, and the rest? People were talking, leaving, yawning. People want their FAVORITE SONGS from 30 year old bands. I saw Dave last year in Irvine and it was INCREDIBLE. This year? A waste of money and time. I left an hour early and don't regret that. Maybe he should think about pleasing his FANS instead of treating his concerts like a jam session or promotion for new music.

To begin, I would not call myself a huge DMB fan, but I did see him a few times back in the day and always enjoyed the songs and energy. Friday night in Seattle was disappointing, OK at best. I am sure his faithful thought differently, but the crowd looked disinterested and really only cheered at the end of songs out of respect for this so-called legend. He played a lot of songs that clearly most of the crowd did not recognize. I expected to hear all his hits, but we only got a few at the end, along with 2 covers...Sledge Hammer (Peter Gabriel) and All Along the Watchtower (Hendrix). The Hendrix cover was clearly the bright spot of the show as Mike McCready from Pearl Jam joined him on stage and ripped it, thank goodness! In the past year I have seen Lukas Nelson, Widespread Panic, The Drive by Truckers, David Grey, John Mayer, Phil Lesh, Trey Anastasio, Markus King, The Black Crowes, etc. and the DMB would have been blown off stage by all of them, not close!!! Good luck DMB
