This show would end up being the last music concert I would ever see at the old Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia and the last time DMB would perform there.

DMB kicked off the show with “Ants Marching” which was very surprising and amazing! A beautiful rendition of “Satellite” followed that, a song that seemed so appropriate for the weather conditions we had.

I really enjoyed the performances of “Crush,” “Warehouse,” “So Much to Say,” and “Jimi Thing” but it was the last three songs of the set that stole the show for me, “The Best of What’s Around,” a great version of “Two Step,” and an amazing rendition of “Tripping Billies.”

I remember thinking to myself that there is no way they could top that in an encore. However, DMB came back out and played an amazing performance of “Pantala Naga Pampa” and “Rapunzel” which completely blew me away! It was a brilliant encore to end a brilliant concert.
