This is one I always come back to. This clip isn't starting halfway into the song, they began the song with the end jam and came back around to the beginning. Have they ever done this any other time?
Wow, that is a very slick version. Wonder how they decided to change it up?

I think the longest are:
NYE 2017 Denver 26:57
&
RR2019 27:13

lucky to be at one of those

Any longer than that??

i'm looking desperately for a longer Dondante...that's pretty sick to be able to say I went to one of the longest ones, I didn't think that would be the case as I've only seen the band and Jim total 7 times.

Quote from: Mbayzer on Aug 29, 2021, 02:12 PMMy Dondante has to be Red Rocks 2012. Everything Changes at the end was the moment I truly understood the song. Sort of what Jim did with Where to Begin in Charlotte.

Love this version. May be my fav of the ones that I've witnessed.

2015 RR Dondante was great when Jim walked back behind the stage and was playing to the giant red rock wall

This most recent Charlotte Dondante was wild because Jim was singing (mumbling*) the lyrics to Where to Begin during the jam

But that 2019 RR Dondante was a Willy Wonka in the boat on the chocolate river in the tunnel trip of a song

the Cap Dondante from 2012 is a beast. Near or over 25 minutes. I'll be honest, I prefer Dondantes in the 15-18 minute range. I think the longer ones can get too "noodly" for me.
Don't you ever turn it off

I have 41 versions of Dondante in my iTunes.  The five longest are:
26:47  2019 Red Rocks
25:07  2012 Port Chester
23:09  2015 OBH
22:42  2018 OBH
20:03  2012 Tokyo

The shortest version I have is a 3:00 Jim solo version from 2018, Capitol Theater as well.
Cuz it's been so long since someone shattered me.

there's definitely something to be said about recency bias, but the version in charlotte last week really stands out amongst my favorite i've been in attendance for. it clocked in right around the 20:00 mark and went to some super interesting places, the where to begin vocal tease during the end jam was incredible.
some get stoned, some get strange, sooner or later it all gets real.

i believe this is the first time I've listened to that Japan 2012 Dondante. After getting past some early chompers, its a real solid recording and version, pretty fast in the jam after 10 minute mark. Fucking a, 2012 ruled.

RR 2016 is my favorite recorded version I've heard. I've only gotten one live version from the five shows I've been to, bad luck!!

Crazy thing about RR 2016 is that, as good as that Dondante is I'd still take the Steam>Only Memories>Steam>Phone from that show over it. Such a great show

You're right I was. Was conflating those two shows. And then jam from Steam straight into PWW, so good
