A fantastic show, I have been to about 20 shows and this was one of my favorites. Plus my fiance has never heard Ants Marching in concert and she finally got to. So it was an extra special show for her and I.

Special night, after 5 previous shows, this was the first night my fiance got to here Ants marching.

Another favourite show. Played Dancing Nancies and Fool To Think. Saw it with John!!!

My first show, and now that I've been to 10, I can say this was my least favorite. It was a good show (Bartender and Ants were phenomenal), but it was lethargic for the most part, as was much of 2002. Also, the Ice Palace's acoustics are disgusting.

Great show!!! My 3rd! I was a little disappointed to not hear Christmas Song but it's all good. Got my first Ants and Met a lot of cool people including Jason Mraz and Wendy the traveling Nancy...

Good show to say the least, I wish they would of played Dreaming Tree instead of teasing so damn much. Oh well, awesome night.

Great show all together. Carter and Boyd carried it the whole way through. Stephan was in a groove, Boyd had unbelievable energy, and Dave was Dave. On the Everyday tracks, check out Carter's drummin. He brought life to those songs that I thought Ballard had killed. I think he even did Fool To Think in double time.

OH yeah....quite possibly the best DMB show I've been to!!

Loved this show for an indoor venue. Had awesome seats and the show was loud and full of energy! Warehouse was probably my favorite-great crowd.

Absolutley amazing!!! The best show I have ever been to! The set list was great, although I would have liked Halloween or All Along the Watchtower, but hearing Dancing Nancies was worth while. The acoustic version of GraveDigger gave me chills. If you don't have tickets to the winer tour yet, do ANYTHING to get them. I had two final exams the next day and it was definately worth failing them to see Dave.

Awesome Setlist, however the venue is just awful for sound,I have never gone back and too many drunken college girls not only rudely talking loudly but around me could not even stand up straight,just terrible....

My 9th show! Was cool to see DMB in the winter time for a change. And it was the first I had ever heard Jason Mraz (before he got big). Great show!

Terrace Level f'n 301, row L seat 10. The ONLY Dave concert I didn't enjoy. Nosebleed, TOO MUCH SMOKE couldn't breathe in a non-smoking venue. Never stopped my love. Going on Dave Cruise in 2 days 2/3/06 to Bahamas.

My first indoor show, the acoustics blew balls, but it was still a cool show. Dave forgot the lyrics for Rhyme and Reason. First time hearing Dancing Nancies and Rhyme and Reason. What You Are was a decent closer but no one else seemed to dig it. All in all a really good show.

Standard DMB Show...as good as one could get in an old arena in Tampa. My first in an Arena...all the screaming kids are too loud! Awesome set list...some old, some newer. If only they had actually played Dreaming Tree and not just teased us!

Pretty damn good show and closed with What You Are!

User: johnnie5
Review:
As usual, what a show. I hate it when I read reviews that say " oh I could have done without this song" ot "this song again". Wake up and realize that when this band plays anything you are hearing some of the most talented musicians in the world who jam out night in and night out. PEople don't understand how difficult it is to go out there every night and perform at the level that they do.

What a fun night, which began a two-day bender taking Bill and I from St. Pete to Atlanta for two back-to-back shows. Our seats sucked. We dranks lots of beer. While Bill created a diversion, I jumped over the wall to get closer to the stage (I know - really stupid - and to make matters worse, I am 44 years old). When it came time for the encore, a guy that was leaving gave me his ticket stub so I could get down in front. It was the closest I'd ever been, thanks to the dude who left early. So much for my concert experience - now on to the review... This show was really special. I was so happy to hear Nancies and Warehouse. Rhyme and Reason was extraordinary. The What You Are encore (from up close) was just amazing. A great time was had by all.

This was the first show i ever got to see Dancing Nancies at... one i had long awaited. I got frustrated at the Dreaming Tree tease... but i didnt mind hearing Gravedigger again.

User: luckycharmscat
Review:
It was my first DMB show and I must say it was everything I expected plus more. I'm hooked. So needless to say this will not be my last DMB show.

Wife's first DMB show. I think I built up the experience a little too much for the show.
Subsequent shows have been much better!

I'm writing this 5 years after seeing the concert. At the time, this wasn't a great show. Even now, I think the setlist is solid but it wasn't great. However, as always with DMB shows, there was something special. The neato little jam outro after Dancing Nancies and I got to hear One Sweet World with the old school extended intro. Not too shabby. However, this certainly was not a great show. Maybe it's not Dave's fault. The Times Forum is infamous for having miserable acoustics. It's a good thing Dave doesn't play here anymore!

great show as usual, loved it, great night, DMB sounded wonderful

User: selonimes

Considering this was my first show, I would have to give it a good review. Honestly, I got almost everything I wanted. The guys played with great energy and they played my favorite songs Crush and Dancing Nancies. Not to mention the great ending on What You Are. Can't go wrong with stuff like that.

Decent show, far too many songs off of Everyday though. I always hate hearing teases, especially of my favorite songs (in this case, Dreaming Tree). Rhyme and Reason was fantastic, and Warehouse, Ants, Crush, and Grey Street were solid as usual. Where You Are, though not one of my favorites on the album, absolutely rocked to end the show. The show had good energy as well. Set list not as great as others I've been to, but I can't ever complain about hearing this band live!

Alright show, not the greatest setlist, could have done with Christmas Song and a full version of dreaming tree. But the boys still rocked. Got in a fight with a drunk jerk in front of me who didn't want to be there.

Great show. Leroy Moore plays "its beggining to look alot like christmas in a solo!

User: the world
Review:
over all, not a bad show at all. it only gets a not bad rating b/c they teased me with dreaming tree and didn't play it. so i was very disappointed to hear the opening and then hear rhyme and reason ... to hear it again ... and then hear gravedigger ... don't get me wrong it was a great show, but it kind of got my hopes up and then squashed them. It was tight though, my fiancee and i were only 5 rows behind the stage so I got to see the gang real close up.

User: ThetaPhiWB

Unreal..was four rows away....still can't get over the acoustic Gravedigger

User: trippinbilly27
Review:
Good Show but bad seats. Directly across from stage on boyd's side close to the top. Had a good view of Carter. Good setlist but the acoustics in the St. Pete Times Forum are horrible. Although it was cool hearing the fans sing along. Best song played....Bartender.
