Awesome show, finally had the chance to go to a DMB concert after 10 years of listening to them. Had to pay an arm and a leg for tickets but it was worth it. Dave did a ton of dancing, more than I have ever seen him do from watching live show video's. Near the end of #41 he began singing Everyday, which was very cool. Every song was great, cant wait to get to the next concert.

Great show. Had great seats considering it was a long process getting tickets when I didn't originally put in for the Warehouse. 23rd row, center.

Met many other fans here for the first time, which was a blast. A bit disappointed in the setlist, but great energy and Dave did lots of dancing.

I REALLY enjoyed this show, and #41 with an Everyday outro is always good to be at.

First time at Alpine... fell in love with the venue the minute that I walked into it! What a great place, just feels so magical! Loved the set-list... looking forward to tomorrow night!

This was one of the best weekends of my life. How can you beat two amazing Dave shows!?!?! Dave and the boys never cease to out-do themselves. I can't say about the two Alpine shows this weekend. Anyone who was as lucky as I was to attend both knows how special they were. Dave always plays with such emotion, even if he is "hoarse, but a small hoarse!" Carter rocked, Boyd ruled, Stefan--nice job with "Stir It Up"!! LeRoi did his thing, Butch added yet another awesome element to the show. Excellent show guys; can't wait to see you next summer!

A great concert for night two! Only two repeats (WAYG and Grace), and a lot of DMB staples. I was 7th row dead center, never this close before, and it's amazing to see band member characteristics and emotion that close! It was hot and humid -- Dave was drenched. The band looked like they were having fun, except for Leroi. He really wasn't sounding like he should have during the first half of the concert. Carter and Fonzi were tight and having a great night. Boyd was really good, and Butch is simply the best addition to their live act! Okay... some show details. Pig and Granny- tight as hell, and Dave was slap-happy! WAYG- Some bad audio feedback off the top that wiped Dave's smile right off his face. Nancies- Great intro, but Dave gives props to the Chicago peeps... errr, but the song was great. World- Leroi! Just put the damn thing down and take a rest! The intro was so bad, Dave made a few subtle facial expressions... it was funny though. #41- Has been my #1 song for a long time, solid with Boyd -> Butch -> Leroi solos, and a funky Everyday outro... probably the best I've ever heard this song. ASTB- Dave lifts his guitar above his head and starts dancing around the stage like a damn ape, seriously the funniest shit I've ever seen him do, and my highlight of the night! Two Step- This is why Butch needs to be a member of the band... he blows me away with a great solo, and Carter kicks ass, period. Ends with a Dave-solo Gravedigger and a classic Ants. This was an absolutely amazing experience, and I already can't wait for Alpine next year!

9th show. I love bringing people who've never seen a show. It's great getting people hooked. In my Top 3 for shows I've seen. Pig, then Granny to open was perfect. Excellent Nancies into Warehouse and a perfect Two Step. Carter is unreal.

Great show. Dave went nuts during ASTB. Great stuff. Carter is unreal behind that drum set. After many many show, i FINALLY got to see Ants Marching live.

This was indeed the best dave concert i have been too. It was non-stop through out the concert. So many things went on it was incredible. Getting a copy of this show is very important to me...it rocked that much!

BEST SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN TO THAT POINT. OUTSTANDING NIGHT.

User: dmb4life2000
Review:
Here is my review of every song. Pig- was a very good opener I never expected it to open the show but it got the crowd going. Granny- Nothing really special about this version Were Are You Going- Were is Loving Wings?? If I Had It All- In my opinion this was the low point of the night the crowd was not into it as much as the other songs. Dancing Nancies- This song was amazing, Boyd did a really good solo during the song. This was one of 4 highlights of the night. Warehouse- Again nothing special about this version but this song was really good to hear right after nancies. Rhyme and Reason- This was the second time I heard it and I would have to admit this song is really good with the crowd. One Sweet World- The crowd really got into this one. #41- This was a really strong song and was one of the best of the night So Much to Say- Anyone Seen the Bridge- Too Much- The jams were the best part and Dave was doing a mad ass dance during ASTB. Boyd was going crazy during his solo's this was another highlight of the night. Grace is Gone- The Stefan bass intro was sweet and it was played at the right time to calm the crowd down from an intense SMTS-ASTB-TM I Did It- I did not see this coming at all and I was totally pissed this was played but the crowd was still into it none the less. Two Step- This was the main highlight of the night. From Stefans's bass intro to the solo's by carter, and butch this was the best song they jamed all night. Gravedigger- This was good to hear and really calmed the crowd down for the final song Ants Marching- Amazing to hear and the crowd was so into it. This was by far the best show I have ever been to in my life.

Nancies->Warehouse was incredible, then the dancing during ASTB by Dave was the funniest thing I'd ever seen. This show was equally as good as last night. After the show we got lost finding my car, and then bribed security with food & beer to let us go out the police/vip exit.

If you don't have this show get it. Just phenominal. The "WOO's" alone during Warehouse just blow me away time and time agian. Dave's voice was a bit scratchy, more than the norm. He claimed to have a "frog in his throat as Gov't Mule was coming on. Then before Gravedigger he said, "forgive me, Ive got a horse in my throat, but hey, its just a little horse." Ahh the humor. Just amazing in all aspects. Alpine is by far the best venue, and chilling on the railing up in front and seeing 40,000+ dmb fans scream "WOO," with hands held high, the best show I've been to, and i dont think one can top it unless i go back there.

Ungh.. still recovering. This show was amazing. loved SMTS>bridge>too much.. and the gravedigger solo. amazing!

User: Dongo
Review:
Again a great show leading me to the conclusion that all shows that have two dates, the second show is just gonna rock twice as hard as the first. My first Alpine show! Not too shabby. Although they were grass you become one with all those who around you. Proving that at a DMB concert all become friends and that indeed music can help heal the world.

I was at the second night of alpine and handed out over 100 window stickers and 30 antsmarching.org t-shirts. Did anyone see me or any of the t-shirts.. I bet not cause of how many people where there, (not to mention the madness of the show) Oh btw.. my show review The show was electric, people were great (except the drunk chick in front of me falling over constantly). The band played great, the crowd was into it, (you could tell cause just about everyone was singing along). Gravedigger... damn damn damn, talk about a crazy story. I would have preferred something different for an encore song, but hey, Ill take it! Anyway, this show is a definite download when the time comes. James

best concert ever cannot even say anything bad about it, opened with pig then into granny, ants as a closer, the only thing that it lacked was Satellite. Nancies into Warehouse was an almost religious experience, this goes down as one of the best nights of my life.

It was a beautiful day and a beautiful night, just the right temp, clear skies, a breath of wind just when you needed it... great music too. Listened to Alpine '98 (classic) on the way. Pig Opener! I finally got to hear Nancies. I really enjoyed on sweet world but lots of people used it as a bathroom break. #41 was awesome, the longest I've heard, very groovy towards the end. The crowd was REALLY in to the ASTB. I had a Two Step closer called all night, and it didn't dissapoint. First time hearing Gravedigger...OK. ANTS was great as usual. CHEERS!

Well, this was my first Dave concert, so i really dont have anything to compare it to...but I think that it was an excellent show and that I now know that any chance i have to see him again live, I definitly will make the trip. He played so many of my favorite songs...I had so much fun too. People! not that i wasn't hooked before, but i've even more hooked on Dave now!

Great, great show. I was at both nights and thought this was the better of the two (though Sat was also a very good show). Pig, Granny to open. Billies and Warehouse. Dave danced all around the stage during Anyone Seen the Bridge - unbelievable - all the boys were on cue tonight and looked like they were loving it. Did anyone see Carter's stick go flying during Two Step???? He didn't even miss a beat. Love hearing Gravedigger live for the first time. This is one you have to download - trust me!

Dave's extreme crazy dance in astb was great (if u were there u know what i mean).This was the second time i've seen dave's extreme crazy dance and boyd's glasses fly off from him goin wild on the violin, the other time i saw both in the same show was 4-27-02 at allstate.

I remember with Labor Day I couldn't find anyone to go with me so I drove up from Chicago alone and sold my ticket to a cool guy in the parking lot. I also remember talking to this really cool couple who had just bought a Mini Cooper. The show was absolutely amazing and it once again reminded me why I keep doing this. It really felt perfect being there alone--surrounded by others who had been to 50 plus shows--telling stories of when they had met Dave, etc. It reminded me of the comraderie from those really early tours--when it was happy, hippy Dave/Dead/Phis Heads--not yet the Abercrombie Nation that it has turned to in more recent years.
