Probably my least favorite of any DMB show I've been to... It was so hot and humid that evening! DMB played a very short set (in time) plus I'm not the biggest fan of IIHIA and FTT.

my first dmb show, but i could tell energy was lacking. show featured a lot of busted stuff and everyday, and i guess i'm more of a fan of the older stuff.

Last show of a three day stretch. A 19 minute version of Two Step stold the show. Great intro to One Sweet World, and Jimi Thing was great also. I really liked the new version of Raven.

it was my first show and it was amazing. i felt like it was an awesome show too, the 20 minute twostep was incredible. i was happy to hear ants marching thats a favorite, and watchtower kicked ass of course. the whole thing just blew me away. DAVE FOR LIFE

This was the first show of July for us. What a great time. Fun and sun and DMB! What more could you ask for!!

User: DBTpig5
Review:
Great show!, the energy was going so high, ended the set list with Ants and we were really anticipating the encore and after watchtower they walked off, Carter threw his sticks and I knew it was over, I think everyone was dissapointed by the end. We still love you DMB!

Dave's voice seemed to be giving out on him at the end of this particular three-day run. Still, a decent show with lots of stuff from Everyday and a nice Jimi Thing.

the first thing my wife and i did on our honeymoon was get into my jeep. the second thing was to get onto I-95 and drive south. the third thing was see dave. what else to do? it was our first date, why not our first "married couple" thing to do?? peace... ...wil

good shw, my first this year, the boys were a little tied i tihnk, this was the last nit of a string of shows that had them playing 7 out 9 nites,

Dear Dave, stop over booking. Shows aren't fun if you can't handle singing and have to cut it short. Up and DOWN show with a set full of bad songs balanced by intense jams.

User: EverydayInVA

Very good but short, loved the setlist that was played though.

User: Fan4Dave
Review:
awesome show!

User: firedancyr7
Review:
Awesome, not the best show I've been to but definitely an amazing show! Of course I only think this because they played 3 out of the 4 songs I wanted to hear... #41 being the only one missing from the evening. Way to Jam on Jimi thing, couldn't have asked for a better version of that.

i saw dmb in VIRGINIA (that's right)... drove 13 hours from NY... jimi thing was wicked awesome, watchtower the only encore- good, maybe his voice was strained... overall, one of the coolest things i have ever done :>)

User: FpotusSCB
Review:
Definitely the worst show I've seen. Far too much Everday stuff and that took the crowd out of it. It was great to hear Ants for the first time, but the encore was too short even if it was Watchtower.

My FIRST dave show!! Too bad Carl got arrested and Tab broke my heart, again. Other than that show was AWESOME! Went to the beach afterward and didn't do much. Won coin toss w/ Joel to share bed with Tab, but nothing happened. Funny Visual: Joel sleeping on that TINY footstool.

I was very happy to hear Two Step,and it was a great version! The rest of the show was strong, but compared to the sets as of late, it was short, and lacked. The boys were tired, but I was still excited to be there, and still loved every minute of it. See ya at hershey!

jimi thing was absolutely incredible

With the exception of JImi Thing jam, this was one of the poorest DMB shows I've seen. They're back in Virginia, at the end of a 3 day streak, and they had no love. I'm sure the heat/humidity didn't help Dave's voice. Short show

I'm not one to bash the band, I do love each and every one of them, but this show was a disappointment.

(Let the flaming begin)

this was my first time seeing DMB and it was everything i expected it to be.

User: LaFemeNikita

This was one delightful show. It looked as if it were going to rain, but the weather held. The opening act, Norah Jones, was excellent. Two Step was powerful, and you could not help but sing. The songs were awesome, as expected, and the band seemed happy to be there. Although the Encore was shorter than most concerts, it was a great experience.

User: lc_2000

An OK show. disappointed with one encore song.

Why so short? One hour and 45 minutes!

Section 201 Row F End of a long 3 days of DMB Shows. Drove back to Chapel Hill, NC after the show. Got back about 4am, rough.

not the greatest show in the world. it was pretty standard, but i enjoyed myself. it was fun just being w/ people who loved dmb just as much as i did.

This was my 5th Dave show and the first time I got Ants live. It felt like a long time coming but that moment alone put it at above average for me. I feel like most of the few shows I've seen were "average" based on other live recordings I have. But when they kicked off Ants I was elated.

User: oswaldrab
Review:
Dave was great, The band sounded good but the Venue has a strictly enforced curfew that the band gets fined if they aren't off stage and out of the parking lot by a certain time so it ended rather abruptly.

First show with my now wife... we'd been dating only a few months at this point and decided to drive from Tallahassee to Virginia Beach. Amazing show... and we were very drunk!

User: providence
Review:
Easily the worst of the 33 I have been to. Terrible crowd, no energy or true effort from the band. Lackluster one song encore of Watchtower says it all.

User: QuakerMan
Review:
I really do regret getting wasted beyond recognition at this show b/c judging by the setlist and what my friends tell me, I missed out big time!!! I still had a great time however!!!

User: reason36
Review:
Show completely rocked. Grey street was a perfect way to open the show, especially since he'd just recently found the words that would be at least recorded on record (rather than off top of his head like tours before). Made out with gorgeous blonde from If I had it All until Watchtower, when her husband came & broke it up. Played guitar with hot girl in parking lot. She asked me to play I'll Back You Up & she just went into (and completely nailed) Tim's solo. Just a Great nite!

User: rkn2dmb41

So I'm going down to Nags Head and decide to get tickets to this show. And wow what a show. Grey Street was freakin awesome and so was Two Step. Fun crowd, great concert, and Watchtower was awesome

A really good show. Unfortunatly I did not feel well I had a strained muscle in my neck and was in pain. I had the least amount of fun of any Dave show but the show was still good.

Good show, great Raven and Watchtower.

Dave's voice needed a much deserved rest... Crowd lacked enthusiasm, set list left MUCH to be desired. Boyd, Carter, Stefan, Leori and Butch... right on it!

First time seeing Dave out of the Tri-state area. Met up with some friends at a place called hammerheads before the show and then went to the tailgate. Crowd was really into it and very vocal during Grey Street. It was a good time.

i expect more from Dave in his home state. He barely played 2 hours. the Ants marching ending saved the show, but ANOTHER Watchtower encore - can't he play Waste when he wants to finish with a cover? needs to incorparate more jams!!

User: vicari41
Review:
great show!!! i had a great time with the crowd in the lawn section. everybody was happy, everyone was free. two step was powerful.

User: wooly8

Decent show but short in length. I am hoping Nissan will more than make up for it!

a little short, but he played some greats
