Great time under the stars! Went with a bunch of friends and partied on the lawn.

The skies were clear and the temperature was up there yet comfortable. The set list was incredible (Dancing Nancies, Typical Situation, Warehouse, Two Step, Ants Marching) and the band put on a very energetic show. This was my second Dave Matthews Band concert.

Awesome...10th row...finally! I think the sound was a lil better toward the back of the arena..had a friend who had lawn seats. But it was SO great to see the band. Loved it!

Best concert I have ever been to, and I have been to alot of concerts including many other of Dave's. Everything was good about it. The acoustics were awesome, the enviroment was unbelieveable, and the set list was great too.

great show at a great new outdoor venue here in utah. The show started pretty mellow and the intensity rose after sunset. Two step as the main set closer was awesome. Digging a Ditch as an encore was a personal highlight for me. and to the reviewer who referred to the folks on the lawn as the "Silly Mormon crowd" - pull your head out. Stereotyping is is for narrow-minded idiots. If the lawn was so "lame" as you said, how do you account for your own presence? I guess that would make you lame. I am still trying to figure out how you enjoyed the show if you were busy asking 13,000 individuals what their religious persuasion was. Don't be a dumbass. Oh, and one other thing - smoking dope at a dave show isn't exactly something to boast about.

Excellent show! My first DMB show. I was wondering about the meaning of life and now I have "Found Dave". Can't wait to see them again and get started taping and trading!

My first DMB show! Came from Boise. Got grass seats mid-way up, so not too bad, and had room to chill and dance. The performance was awesome!!! Just amazing. I only wish some of BTCS songs got played - that is, in my opinion, the best studio release. But all my other favs were done well. Boyd's "True Reflections" was a nice suprise. Dave didn't seem to into this performance, with little crowd-talk. Can't wait till the Gorge 2004!! I'll be there!

Amazing show!! 6th row and absolutely beautiful. Bartender, Nancies, So Much To Say> Ants, Warehouse, Lover Lay Down, Typical, Two Step, and Billies, all highlights!!!

Great seats and a great setlist. Happy to hear him play a handful of songs that had eluded me during previous shows (Nancies, Typical, etc).

This show was great. I was quite impressed with Typical situation. I was surprised to hear tripping billies as a closer, but it was way good. I still think the best concert I've been to though was in Saratoga Springs of 2000. That concert had SO many excellent jams. But all in all the band Rocks!

The show was good and really seemed to focus on the elder stuff that I enjoy so much. There was a lot of UTTAD and pretty good versions too. The venue was nice (it's no Gorge, but it was nice). The band really kicked ass on SMTS -> ASTB? -> Ants! Weren't as many solos as other concerts I have been to and the jams didn't seem quite as energized. The crowd was definitely mellow and the security was unorganized. The venue is brand new, so I'm okay with the fact that they're still figuring out the kinks. Aside from my constructive criticism, the show was still great (as usual)! Too Much, Nancies (inredible Talking Heads intro)!, Warehouse, Lover, Typical, WTWE, Two Step, Billies all did it for me. Great show!

wow.... extremely mellow crowd, but a great set!!! my highlights: AMAZING nancies, boyd was right on bartender ruled as always SMTS>>ASTB>>ANTS!!!! WOW, THERE was some freaking energy! warehouse: came way out of the blue, totally unexpected. Typical: wow. Two Step: HOLY MOTHER OF CHRIST. best one i've seen yet! billies: very mellow, yet awesome to hear that way. anyway, very beautiful night, great set, and it was amazing to be able to just dance and hear the band. we met some great people as well, and will be sure to return next year!

Great Show. Grey Street and Two Step highlights. Tripping Billies always good way to go out.

Last night's show was DMB's best Utah performance to date. Good setlist including Typical, Two Step and no Satellite or Crash. Not to mention ASTB -> Ants. Has that ever been done before? The show was excellent and the crowd average. Two Step, as great as it was, still lacked a little compared to other versions I've seen but still a gem for a one night Utah gig. Gorge two weeks from tomorrow!!

My home town! Dave was drunk off his ass, more than ever before.

Really fun show, I'm just hoping that someone who taped it will release it, as Typical and SMTS--> Ants was really entertaining.

Review:
Good strong show. Unfortunately, one of my strongest memories was how bad the parking was....

User: Malagant
Review:
The silly Mormon crowd on the lawn was pretty lame, but I had a good time with my friends. We ate, drank, and were merry. And when Dave said,"We'll be burnin' one"... we were :) This was my second show, I went to the Olympics last year and this was a very good show, least I thought so. Warehouse and Typical Situation were excellent, I would have like to have been closer but lawn seats was all I could afford. Plus the party on the lawn was very fun. All in all a truly terrific evening.

The band was great. A good mix of old stuff and new. The weather was hot and the management at the venue did not seem to know how to run the place but over all an excellent show.

My first DMB concert and I hope not the last. Amazing.

Sweet Show Good Set list but were was crash or Crush. Great Crowd the guys fed off the crowds energy to make it a night to remember. Butch was awsome in bartender!

User: piscesgirl21

I was actually in line to but a drink when out on no where the crowd started going crazy. I knew they were on and then the music started. It would be the first time I saw them live and I was shaking because I was so exited. I had been waiting for so long to see them, especially Dave. The only problem were the two freaks that kept getting it on and got in the way. Otherwise I had a great time. I cannot wait for his new CD to be out. I love the DMB!

My first Live DMB show ever!

User: rdawg13
Review:
I felt like it was a great show. It was my first one so I was just in complete awe of the band at a live performance. The crowd didn't seem to be as into it. Must have been a lot of "Crash Fans"... Anyways, it could have used some more BTCS, but the jams they did have were awesome. Lovin every minute of it!

Review:
the setlist is not amazing at first glance. and i dont know how this show compares to others. well, all i can really say, Typical Situation was among the better versions i've ever heard - but the real highlight was Two Step, the best one ive ever heard, and i dont just say that. the beginning of the show was kinda weak (with exception of dancing nancies). i dont know, just get yourself a copy for the Two Step.

Interesting set list with Boyd and True Reflections. The crowd was not a "typical crowd" and was pretty reserved (except for the teenage girls sitting behind me yelling I want to marry u Dave! I finally told them he is married!) The venue was nice and new but security was hell to get through. Listened to Gov't mule while waiting in line to get in.

Ok, my wife was there when I was in Iraq. She said it was amazing... After hearing the B&P, I totally agree. Thanks Dave for keeping my wife's spirits up while I was gone!

1st dave show. pretty good, but i wasn't hooked yet.

User: tman12

This show was amazing the whole way through. Big highlights were an incredible Bartender, Lover Lay Down, Two Step, and Tripping Billies. This is still one of my favorite shows, and the setlist was one that i would have never dreamed.

It was an amazing show in a great venue. Probably the closest I've been to the band.

User: wasamoliver
Review:
Although shorter than I had hoped, and slightly heavy on Everyday, and a complete absense of BTCS... This show was my only one this season, and I am not dissapointed. Long ass jams on Typical Situation, Dancing Nancies, Two Step, and Billies... the SMS-->Bridge-->Ants was kick ass and the jam in the middle of Typical Situation was fantastic. The set may look a little weak, but the umph and gusto from the boys was great, and from where I was sitting the crowd was great too... Im only sorry that It is the only show I get to attend this series... Thanks DMB!

The closest I've ever been to the band, 5th row. It was amazing to see the band like I've never have before or since. Solid set list with decent energy.

after hours of waiting, waiting, waiting (traffic and security) the show was amazing!!! DMB NEVER disappoint!!!

This was the first show I've been to in the last two years, and it was sweet to get back even though it wasn't the best I've been to. My girlfriend sucked all night, so we are no longer together. DMB forever!
