EXCELLENT SHOW!!! This was my first Dave and Tim show and it definitely lived up to it's high expectations. I have to say that the venue was crap. The seating was so tight and so uncomfortable. I would be very surprised to ever see Dave play at Carthage again.

Great show...horrible venue. I enjoyed myself and thought it was an outstanding show, but I really hope who ever schedules the venues looks into it better and never looks into Carthage College again. It was horrible. Luckily Dave and Tim were awesome so it was just the venue that sucked not the show.

The most disappointing DM experience I have ever had. Having been to the Purdue show before this one, I was very disappointed. The setlists were so similar...only like 3 songs different. He even told the same stories from the previous show. The setup of the "venue" was terrible, both in terms of site and sound. It should not have been held in a gym. Dave did not seem into the show at all and everyone that I went to the show with, all big dmb fans, seemed disappointed with the experience, whether or not they had been at the purdue show. I had rude and annoying people surrounding me as well. The show was just not up to DM standards that I have become accustomed with.

It was my first Dave and Tim show, and I was blown away. The guys in front of us were being pretty retarted about wanting to stand up in front of us, but other than that...this show was amazing.

the show was amazing. no more than 300 people who were all in awe of the two. the audience was so quiet while they played, astonished and admiring stares were placed upon stage and standing ovations inbetween every song... it was magnificent.

incredible. highlights were crush: best i've heard, lie: tremendous jam and fake pause, great warehouse, and 41. davespeaks about a farting camera guy at 4.3 and about falling to the ceiling: "without gravity we'd all be screwed" drew laughs.

13th show. Terrible venue, but still unreal. Best of What's Around made my evening after not hearing it the night before at Purdue. Warehouse too.

If the security and half the drunks would shut up it would have been alot better. The intimacy of the concert was unforgettable.

I was at the show but have no recollection of Gravedigger being played. The song is one of my favorites and i doubt i would have let it go by unnoticed. Anyone else in the same boat?

Well what can I say? 'Ants' user pj4real29 once again came thru in the clutch by standing outside for over 22 hours to get these prime tickets. Some suckers sitting next to us paid over $300 for their tickets. Anyway, the show was outstanding. It was great to hear those dmb favorites broken down to their simplest form. Tim Reynolds was a great man to see play live and hopefully I will get to see a dandy of a show like this again.

while my seats sucked, the show was absolutly amazing and it was a night that I will never forget!!!

User: davespeak34

Well, to start off with, Dave and Tim played 28 songs! I had some of the worst seats in the house, but was still no more than 75 yerds from the stage, and the sound was excellent. I was not dissapointed. Tim's solos were out of this world. Was hoping for Stream, but got even better. I had been wanting to hear Dancing Nancies all night, and he fifnished it up great in the encore. Great show. Best show of my life by far.

Absolutely amazing! The acoustic version of everthing just blew my mind. Dave was at the top of his game, and Tim, well, I can't even begin to describe how well he played. The best part of the evening was when Dave made a brief mention to the war in Iraq, and Tim just held out his hand and made a peace sign...the crowd went nuts!!! :) Hands down, the best show I've been to.

Great show, bad crowd, mostly the carthage students that wouldn't shut up, but the show was great. Wish Dave would've talked more, but I can see why he didn't especially in the second half because of all the people interupting him

My first live Dave and Tim...waited about 3.5 hours in below zero temps for these tickets

It was a great show, my first Dave and Tim show. The setlist was great, I couldn't ask for anything better. The crowd wasn't as bad as I expected, and I was happy since I didn't want the college I attend to have a bad rep. The best part of the night, besides Dancing Nancies: Met Dave before the concert, which was great since he was sooo nice and kept a great conversation and was so gracious to sign whatever we wanted and hes a good hugger ;)

WOW WOW WOW! Everything you might have heard about a Dave and Tim show are true and then some! First, I have to say that it was a very interesting venue for a show of this stature. I was expecting a preforming arts theater or something- only dave and tim can make a concert on an indoor track so awesome. big suprises to hear: Busted Stuff, Best of whats.., The Maker, Exodus tease, Cry Freedom, PFWYG. Tims solos didnt go unnoticed either, they both got standing ovations .I didnt even notice all the lame asses that were yelling till I got a copy of a show. Anyways best concert ever hands down!

I spent 13 and a half hours in the freezing cold over night 200 feet from lake michigan in Feburary to get tix to this show... my self and 2 other girls waiting so we could get tix for us and our men... who by they way were too chicken to brave the cold... IT WAS WORTH IT... COMPLETELY... What else can i say...

I was so disappointed when I was not alloted tickets to this show from the fan site. Fortuately I had a great contact at the college and I was able to get 4 great seats. I took 2 of my kids and a friend who had gotten me into a skybox for a DMB show a couple years before. It was a rainy night and parking was horrible but all worth it. Tim Reynolds was amazing. First time I have heard Dave solo. obviously a more mellow show but it still rocked. Really have to hear Tim to appreciate his talent; have to hear Dave solo to appreciate his versatility. Ranks up there as one of the best.

2nd D&T show, not nearly as cool as the first one back in 1999

Worst venue for a concert I have ever seen. Sound was awful, and seating was cramped. It seem liked mostly people just wanted to hear themselves shouting and screaming.

I was in the 7th row center. Talk about the greatest lcuk I've ever had to score those seats. What can I say, Dave is amazing. And he played for so long - he gave you more than your money's worth. I was hoping for Crush and Dave abliged. The best concert of my life!!

User: mwjorgens

The only D&T show I've ever been to. Camped out all night in February in below zero windchills with about 2,000 other people. The venue was crappy, but the show was fantastic. Well worth the potential frost bite. I'll never forget it.

awesome show, my first dave and tim experience and it was great, setlist was long and basically flawless, crowd took a while to actually sit down which was annoying because i was sitting right behind a main aisle, but other than that, it was a great night

Review:
Great show!! Energy was good, and Dave had some pretty funny stories. Crush is by far the best I've heard, and Busted Stuff and Pay For What You Get were great.

To put things as simply as possible, Dave and Tim had to make the best of what was around, great performance as expected, AN ABSOLUTELY HORRID VENUE. A 13 hour round trip, all that camping out in subzero temperatures to get tickets, another 14 hour round trip in freezing rain, getting snuffed by Reno cabs, having to show up late just to have my ignorantly high expectations crushed by thinking I really had a good seat in section-C row-R. Everyones heads were cocked to the left because someone forgot to stagger the high-school graduation ceremony set-up and to top things off in the one crack I could see from.. the taper tower-pole thing was in the middle of Dave's head. Atleast I should be able to get a good copy of the otherwise increrdible show. I'm guessing that was Chuck L. It's definately a nessecary evil. Nevertheless, after a couple of songs my nerves and problems melted away and I could have just closed my eyes all together and just sat back and enjoyed the show ignoring all the selfish demanding screaming.

The only thing that made up for the horrible venue (gymnasium with no elevated seating) and idiot fans on dave's right side of the stage was the fact that they played for 3:20 with a great setlist. Sound was hard to hear at times and I didnt even have bad seats. When are people going to learn that telling dave and tim that you love them wont get you a date and screaming songs wont get you the song you want to hear. I just wish they played #41 earlier in the night so people would stop screaming for it.

My first Dave and Tim show. Absolutely amazing. Even though the crowd was annoyingly disruptive, it was a magical night and the sheer emotion delivered in some of the latter songs was incredible.
